Okay, second response. After digging a bit more, I strongly agree with you. Bloomberg may well be a disaster. He is more truthful, more trustworthy, and much smarter than Trump, and did work his way up from the middle class and may still have a clue about what it means to pay bills…

…but he is still too arrogant by half. For instance, he’s put off showing his tax filings until after Super Tuesday. Gee, where have we heard this before?

I’m a pragmatist, and so I try to be patient with the faults of others, to consider that their mindsets may not always be a fault in their character. But no, I’m done with Bloomberg for the primaries. I’ll campaign for and vote for Bernie before Bloomberg…and I really don’t like Bernie. If Bloomberg wins the Democratic nod, I’ll still vote for him because Trump is not only openly encouraging racism and rails against immigration, but is also ending alliances with other nations and destroying the DOJ and the State Department. Yes, Bloomberg still might still do such things…but Trump is doing it now. Add to that the fact that Trump has “joked” again and again that he’s going to be president for long beyond the constitutional limit of two terms.

I now consider Bloomberg as barely one step above Tulsi Gabbard…and that’s not meant as a compliment.

I’ll work on the article, and I will do my best to follow your lead.
