Bloomberg Says He Wants a Third Term as Mayor

Rudy tried that 8 years ago after 9/11, but no one would even hear of it. He might have thought of himself of America's mayor, but New Yorkers were certainly not thrilled with him. Not before 9/11. Not after 9/11. It's just amazing how the press can manipulate a whole country, isn't it?
Now Bloomberg.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced on Thursday that he would abandon his earlier opposition to changing the term limits law and seek a third term as mayor, arguing that the economic crisis buffeting the nation called for continuity in municipal leadership.

“The good news is that we have planned for a slowdown in New York, but we may well be on the verge of a meltdown,” Mr. Bloomberg said, “and it’s up to us to rise to the occasion.”

He added that a third term “is a challenge I want to take on for the people of New York.”
Wealthy businesspeople support Bloomberg. Hmmm.
