According to Tal Axelrod’s article at, Joe Biden is outraged by Michael Bloomberg’s recent ad, in which, while not saying it in so many words, it just about every visual shows Bloomberg with Barack Obama, and tacitly suggests Obama is endorsing him.

Biden has a valid point.

Yes, it is true that the ad does not at any point specifically say Barack Obama has endorsed the Bloomberg candidacy.  But its execution is clearly designed to make people think he did.

And as long as Ex-President Obama does not speak out, I suspect Bloomberg will continue showing this ad, because Mr. Obama remains an iconic figure among Democrats in general, and it may help Bloomberg address the significant issues he has with Black voters.

Time to hear from you, Mr. Ex-President.
