Wiki updated today

Michael Rubens Bloomberg (born February 14, 1942) is an American businessman and politician who is currently Mayor of New York City. With a net worth of $25 billion in 2012, he is also the 10th-richest person in the United States.[2] He is the founder and 88% owner of Bloomberg L.P., a financial data-services firm.[3][4][5]

A Democrat before seeking elective office, Bloomberg switched his registration in 2001 and ran for mayor as a Republican, winning the election that year and a second term in 2005. Bloomberg left the Republican Party over policy and philosophical disagreements with national party leadership in 2007 and ran for his third term in 2009 as an independent candidate on the Republican ballot line. He was frequently mentioned as a possible independent candidate for the 2008 presidential election, which fueled further speculation when he left the Republican Party.[6] There was also speculation that he would run as a vice-presidential candidate.[7] Bloomberg did not, however, seek the presidency nor was he selected as a running mate by any of the presidential candidates.

In the fall of 2008, Bloomberg successfully campaigned for an amendment to New York City's term-limits law, in order to allow him to run for a third term in 2009. Bloomberg won the election on November 3, 2009.[8]

On the first day of November in 2012, Mayor Bloomberg formally endorsed Barack Obama for President of the United States, citing the President's actions during the relief efforts of Hurricane Sandy and his tougher stance on climate change.[9]

Bloomberg is one of the worst people in America. He also said that in the wake of Sandy he's gonna hold the NYC marathon pulling thousands of cops and EMS workers away from the victims who actually need them.

I just didn't know much about him except for his CRAZY laws and bans from our members here. This was just big and shocking news yesterday and thought someone could shed some light. I didn't mean for it to be a political thing although it is inquiring about his mindset. What a horrible thing to do a few days before the election. Kind of a backstabbing to all his people that voted for him in the past. I think I'll go get a BIG GULP and cool off, and be sure to take side arm. LOL

Bloomberg has never been anything but a money hungry douche, he had to change his political party the first time just cause his own party didn't want him to run.

Bloomberg's an ass! http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/...C-Marathon

And...don't know if it's true...but we heard here that when the National Guard was deployed here...he insisted that those deployed in NYC be unarmed.
