If I was Obama I would pick Michael Bloomberg as Vice President
Posted by silentarchimedes on June 22, 2008
OK, I know this won’t happen, but what the country really needs is a CEO. Someone who is used to succeeding under major constraints. Someone who is fiscally responsible. Someone who is innovative. Someone who cares only about the bottom-line.
The country is a mess. The infrastructure is deteriorating. The economics are screwed up. We need a no-nonsense businessman to clean things up. We also need someone that is non-partisan and won’t be so influenced by the politics of the two parties. Someone who is very rich, and is doing the job because he loves our country and loves results.
That person is Michael Bloomberg. What is unfortunate is that most people see the presidential election as a popularity contest. They want to like the person’s personality rather than what he or she brings to the table. Bloomberg’s personality is what works against him. He’s a no-nonsense person. It’s too bad because he has all the credentials to turn this country around domestically. Additionally, he’s an engineer by trade, having earned his engineering degree from Johns Hopkins University.
Well, just wishful thinking on my part…
