Last night’s Democratic debate was not a good one for billionaire Mike Bloomberg. After spending $400 million on TV campaign ads, Bloomberg faced direct questioning and criticism for the first time. All of his Democratic opponents pounced on him. Elizabeth Warren compared his relationships with women to President Trump. Another commented about how the election did not need to have two billionaires in the race. All of them mentioned his stop and frisk policy toward young minority men. One of the few jabs that Bloomberg got in was when he pointed out the hypocrisy of Sanders who is a millionaire who owns three houses. That drew groans from the Democratic audience. Bloomberg mostly stood there and took it. If Bloomberg does buy the nomination, and that’s what he’s done so far, he will have a divided party behind him. He’s going to have to do better with the rough and tumble ways of competitive politics than how he did here. When he ran for Mayor of New York, he only had to deal with his own party. Even so it was said that he spent over $170 a vote to get re-elected the last time. Now, dealing with a much more diverse electorate, he’ll have to earn the job, not buy it.
