The One Thing Politicians Do

Is protect their own interests.

President Washington had the sense to go back to his farm after two terms.

Mayor Bloomberg, however, is an indispensable man, and his loss would be a catastrophe for the Republic.

Therefore, the laws made for lesser men must be swept aside!

In interesting case, Bloomberg. It’s not like he needs the money. No, this is just sheer egotism.

New York, after Giuliani*, is on its way back to being an ungovernable mess, with Bloomberg leading the charge.

* Something of proof positive about the indispensable man – Did Rudy turn NYC around? Yes. Could he replace the corrupt and dysfunctional infrastructure to generate future good governance? No.
