New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg might like to pretend that he's so above the political fray that he can't even be bothered to make a presidential endorsement. But, as it turns out, he secretly harbors opinions. And not just any opinions, but opinions about things.
You've just got to get a few drinks in him, and all kinds of conflicting opinions start tumbling out…
[D]uring casual conversations at charity event a few days ago, Mr. Bloomberg was far chattier — and candid — about the subject, according to three people who overheard him.
Mr. Bloomberg said that he believed Mr. Romney would probably be better at running the country than Mr. Obama, according to two guests.
But Mr. Bloomberg said he could not support Mr. Romney because he disagreed with him on so many social issues, these two people said. The mayor mentioned two such issues: abortion rights and gun control.
As a result, Mr. Bloomberg said, he intended to remain neutral, said one guest.
So, there you have it, people who want to see the country run very efficiently in the wrong direction. Mitt Romney is your man!
