    He's too liberal to be a Republican anyway.

    What's this guy about? Could anybody tell me why a person should or shouldn't vote for him, and could anybody tell me why I should or shouldn't vote for him?

    I know he's a republican but from what I saw the other day on the news a lot of people believe the only reason he ran on the republican ticket was because he couldn't defeat the democrat in the nomination process.

    I know he's pro-choice, but how pro-choice is he?

    Can anybody tell me a little about him or his political beliefs?

    I'm not saying he isn't, becaues I know so little about him, but this does sound like something a facist would not say.

    He was a member of the Democratic party for 40 years, then was a member of the Republican party for 6. Now he's an Independent.

    Look him up on wikipedia and read

    Anyone know his platform?
    Assuming he ran, what has he done and what would he try to do if he ran...you can guess even if he hasnt come out with it by past work done.

    He supports same-sex marriage, amnesty for illegal immigrants, universal health care, and strict gun control. He's adamantly pro-choice, agrees with the fundamentals of the Iraq War even though he thinks the United States screwed up their strategy in the long run, and is fiscally conservative to a degree.

    In other words, he's more Nader than Perot.

    Shame me into posting substance eh...
    You know what I meant.
    "Im a Democrat".
    "Im a Republican"
    "Im an Independent".
    Then later on it'l be
    "Im a little teapot".

    You wrote-"You can guess by his past work".I say Its almost impossible to decipher him anymore.
    The guy raised property taxes and chastised this administration for offering that rebate check.
    He supports gay marriage and is anti death penalty.
    All in all, a man far to complicated for one word slogan campaigns

    Michael Bloomberg is a better politician than anyone currently seeking the Presidency. He didn't want to deal with the nonsense of New York City politics, so he dropped his lifelong affiliation with the Democratic Party so he could run for Mayor as a Republican. Then he got sick and tired of the labels associated with the Republicans, and because the Democrats basically abandoned him when he jumped ship, he decided not to affiliate himself with a political party.

    The man is very, very smart. You have to be to essentially go from nothing to billions virtually over night. He's a dedicated philanthropist, an excellent businessman, and he's transformed NYC into a respectable city again. Last year, NYC had the lowest crime rate in 40 years. The city's economic growth is back on track, and he's successfully led NYC out of the uncertainty which followed 9/11.

    Bashing him because he isn't teh Obama is stupid and uninformed, and if he ran against Obama, I'd cast my ballot for Bloomberg.

    Assuming you got it all correct...

    same-sex marriage - ok with
    amnesty for illegal immigrants - against adamantly
    universal health care - against
    strict gun control - against adamantly
    pro-life - ok with
    War- ok with
