NY Mayor Bloomberg Blames State’s Mess on Gov. Cuomo

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at it again, this time going off on Governor Cuomo and many other state legislators claiming they aren’t fit for any job in the private sector.

In a recent interview on a New York TV station, Bloomberg slammed the state’s legislators saying, “The average legislator who has to make policy on things that influence our lives, our kids’ lives, our future, would they ever get a job in the private sector making policy on big things? No, not a chance.”

Bloomberg also slammed Gov. Cuomo for his frequent practice of attaching a “message of necessity” to bills sent to the legislature. This practice forces quick votes on bills and prevents lawmakers from having enough time to fully consider them before being expected to cast a vote.

“Why can’t you give it time? Well, the answer is they don’t want anybody to see it. That’s the only explanation,” Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg’s criticism comes only days after several New York officials were arrested accused of attempting to fix the upcoming mayoral election.

Of course, let’s face it. Bloomie’s motive here isn’t pure. He’s desperate to get his own failures out of the news, so he’s now caught finger pointing at everyone else.With his utter failure to get his anti-Second Amendment policies passed, with his own state courts slapping down his anti-liberty food restrictions in his city, Bloomberg’s record is one of great efforts all reduced to failure because they are built of anti-Americanism.

      You can say a lot of things about Bloomberg, but you can’t say he couldn’t make a living in the private sector.

      Besides, Bloomberg’s right. A lot of state legislators could not make a living in the private sector.

      Isn’t Warner the guy who posts “Retard State Legislator of the Week?” And he’s only getting half of them, because he only posts about the foolish things Democrats do.

        My comment about pots and kettles has less to do with making a living doing honest work than with who’s responsible for the mess in NY.

        A lot of politicians have trained and specialized in two abilities – the art of raising money, and the charisma needed to win elections.

        Sadly, neither of those have much, if any, correlation with the jobs they get put into place to do. But damn, don’t they look good while they’re screwing things up?
