As I sat obsessed over the recent battle to avoid a government shutdown – embarrassed about the fact that the Republicans are doing the right thing by sticking to their guns on the numbers, but the wrong thing by trying to stick the policy riders in the mix – I noticed something funny on New York TV that I had not thought about until this moment.
Mike Bloomberg is running an ad campaign on “Independent Leadership”.
Why would someone not eligible to run for Mayor again start running TV ads branding his record and independence?
Is he just that flush with cash that he wants to make sure his image is intact in his last couple years as mayor?
Or is he laying the groundwork for an independent bid for President?
Have these ads been timed to coincide at the same moment that Americans become completely disgusted with the status quo in Washington.
