Obama loves Bloomberg
Obama loves Bloomberg and Bloomberg loves Obama.
New York City's Republican Party endorsed this guy? (sigh)
Obama just signed a bill to expand national service funding. He gave a front-row seat to Michael Bloomberg, then thanked "the outstanding mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg." This is the golden quote that Bloomberg can use in all his advertising, over and over and over.
A few years ago, Michael Bloomberg was a registered Republican. New York City hosted the 2004 Republican National Convention. George W. Bush was re-elected president.
Bloomberg couldn't go to the inauguration of the president of the United States because he was busy that day, had some laundry to do, whatever. It was an act of disrespect not only to Republicans, but to the office of the president.
Then Bloomberg formally left the Republican party.
Now Bloomberg decides he just loves the new president (who happens to be a Democrat). He'll be in Washington, no problem. He can't wait to tell everyone about it!
There's nothing wrong with supporting the president when he (or she) is right, but this "national service" bill stinks. As I wrote here before--"Make Money, Be Happy." What today's youth needs isn't more opportunities to work for free--they need JOBS!
Charities (the ones who are suffering now) have plenty of spaces for people willing to work for free. My niece built houses with Habitat for Humanity The government's role is not needed here--not one penny needs to be spent! Many conservatives feel that the real purpose here is forced political indoctrination--"Obama Youth"--to "ACORN" our young. People will be taught how to be "community organizers," just like Obama. Republicans don't support boondoggles like this.

OBAMA CALLS MIKE ONE 'OUTSTANDING MAYOR'
By GEOFF EARLE
April 22, 2009
WASHINGTON -- Mayor Bloomberg, who is expected to get the Republican line on November's mayoral ballot, won the ultimate seal of approval in Democratic politics yesterday when President Obama called him the "outstanding mayor of New York."
The White House gave Bloomberg props by inviting him to Obama's bill-signing yesterday for legislation to expand national service funding.
After saluting several dignitaries on hand -- including former President Bill Clinton and Caroline Kennedy -- Obama thanked "the outstanding mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg."
The White House also gave Bloomberg a plum seat for the bill-signing -- in the front row next to former Secretary of State Colin Powell and his wife Alma.
