    Mayor Bloomberg announced his endorsement for President Obama in a surprise op-ed today.

    His endorsement had been sought by both candidates but, until now, he had expressed dissatisfaction with both men.

    His change of heart seems to have been somewhat influenced by Hurricane Sandy.

    I'm sure no one here will be impressed - and some will argue his climate change worries and dismiss them as unfounded.....but there are voters out there who will be impressed and who will share his concerns - and that's a good thing for Obama supporters everywhere.

    Re: Unexpected Obama Endorsement

    Real shocka...the democrat, turned republican, turned independent, but forever a moonbat liberal, endorsed Obama. :yawn2:

    BTW climate change is real high on voters minds this year. It's right up there with favorite color, and tastes great vs less filling. Which if you're in NYC better be tastes great, cuz the nanny state already made sure it will be less filling.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I'm not sure.

    Bloomberg is a well respected, highly successful businessman turned politician

    Bloomberg is a Moon bat

    Therefore, a Moonbat must be a highly successful, well respected businessman turned politician.

    :) See how easy that was?

    He is one of the few high profile independent politicians, and it seems that undecided and independent voters will decide this election.

    Mitts gone off the edge, Bloomberg sounds like he wanted to support Romney, but Romney forced his hand.

    Bloomberg could've just stayed silent, but he didnt.

    Moonbat/Wingnut basically mean the extremist, dellusional, hypocrite, fraud loons from their respective party. Bloomturd is a moonbat of monumental porportions. Bloomturd is by no means an independent, unless you mean to use the term to say independently self serving. I used to think the guy was solid when i read all the press clippings and headlines years ago when I first started to get into political news. Then the more I read and learned, the less I liked about him. He's a fraud. A billionaire elitist obsessed with being in power. So much so that he moves to use a crisis to circumvent term limits to retain the job. He's a bigtime nanny stater who knows what's best for you....or else. My favorite is the hundreds of millions in tax free, or taxpayer backed bonds he secured for the Yankees, for which he demanded a lfree uxury box for the mayors office. What a turd.

    I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Al Gore back on TV, trying to convince people that Hurricane sandy was due to climate change. Then again we shouldn't be surprised that some slimeball would try and politicize a devastating event not even a week after it happens.

    Just how polluted and overpopulated was the earth in 1635, the first recorded hurricane packing winds of 130mph?
    Blast from the past; first hurricane hit Pilgrims in 1635 - USATODAY.com Kind of an interesting story actually.

    Al Gore's a dimwit, I'm not surprised Loonberg's hopped on his bandwagon:cool:

    Obama's the man with the money and Loonberg's all over it.

    Most scientists believe in climate change; most Republicans do not. Most scientists are interested in knowledge and research and objective understanding of the facts to develop theories. In my view, the risk of addressing climate change is cleaner air and water. Most Republicans don't seem to think about this issue very deeply, and engage in the sort of groupthink that people like Rush Limbaugh foist upon them. That said, it's important to acknowledge, there is a small group of scientists and Republicans who do not believe in climate change for thoughtful reasons, just as there are still a small group of people who do not believe in relativity and evolution.

    What do you expect? You have Republican doctors talking about evolution being the tool of the devil while serving on science committees.

    The idiocy is staggering.

    All scientist know that the climate is always changing, an increasing number realize that the human activities have little to nothing to do with the process. ;)

    Most scientist's require government funding to support their research, an inconvenient truth.

    This line of thinking suggests we need to discredit all science.

    No. Everyone has a master. At the same time most humans are self serving.
