NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has endorsed President Obama for a 2nd term citing his immediate and total response to Hurrican Sandy and climate change.  Your thoughts?  I'm, as a New York City Resident, can't stand Bloomberg but this will help Obama in some swing states and that's good for us.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Do you really think that Bloomberg has significant name recognition outside of NY, let alone influence?

    •  There are voters (0+ / 0-)

      Outside of NYC who wanted to see Bloomberg run this year.  Many of them are independent voters and this endorsement can help with them.  Additionally, I would now like to see Bloomberg put his money where his mouth is and make a large donation to the Obama Campaign.

    •  but it don't hurt (0+ / 0-)

      I'm still very skeptical about Bloomberg's national influence,  but it's one more tidbit of positive vibes towards the O man

  •  A non democrat who endorses Obama (0+ / 0-)

    is a good thing. Blomberg, as with any mayor of NYC,  has name recognition all over the country

    •  Totally agree (0+ / 0-)

      Maybe even in Florida.  Currently see that Romney has a 60 to 35% lead with seniors, don't understand this but this may sway voters in this group away from Romney.

    not inviting prez to visit NY yesterday. I guess he could have used a ride on Marine One too. lol

    •  That was stupid, I agree (0+ / 0-)

      Especially taking Obama to SI which has been devistated with 19 dead and millions in damage.  Of course, Cuomo should have taken the lead on this also if Bloomberg didn't.

      For the President to be present in NYC would have tied up hundreds of NYC police and others for security reasons for much of yesterday.  They had better things to do in NYC with the recovery after storm Sandy.  The Mayor's public statement let Obama off the hook (Obama would not be seen as dissing NYC while visiting NJ instead), permitted ALL the photo ops and TV coverage to be the lovefest between GOP Gov Christie and Obama (helping Obama's reelection narrative) and let those hundreds of NYC police and fireman aid the NYC post-storm recovery.  It was a brilliant move by team Obama and the Mayor.
