Bloomberg Was a Republican?

The media borgasm over this news is only more tolerable when you see what the left wing blogs are writing about it. Their cluelessness is hilarious.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is leaving the Republican party and will remain unaffiliated with any political party, CBS 2 HD learned Tuesday night.

The move will clearly begin advancing rumors that the mayor is gearing towards a presidential run, which he has denied in the past.

In a statement, however, the 65-year-old billionaire mayor indicated this doesn't change his plans for his political future.

"I have filed papers with the New York City Board of Elections to change my status as a voter and register as unaffiliated with any political party. Although my plans for the future haven’t changed, I believe this brings my affiliation into alignment with how I have led and will continue to lead our City."
Bloomberg is the penultimate example of a RINO (Republican in Name Only). He was a card-carrying member of the Democratic Party all of his life, until he wanted to buy himself the Mayor's mansion in New York City.

He changed his affiliation from "Democrat" to "Republican" to avoid the packed Democratic Primary in 2001, then road Giuliani's endorsement to victory after 9/11.

(Thanks Rudy.)

Perhaps some of my other bloggers here at the BBA can understand that the above is a true example of a RINO; not when John Gard or somebody else personally angers you on an issue.

Food for thought...
