Billionaire Michael Bloomberg was a lifelong Democrat… Until he decided to run for Mayor of New York City in 2001.
But, with Mark green having pretty much sewn up the Democratic nomination, he needed to be a Republican to run. So that is what he became.
Eight years later, when Bloomberg got the term limit rule overturned so he could run for a third term, he became an independent.
And now that Bloomberg appears to be interested in running for President in 2020 (when he would be 78 years old), he has reregistered as a Democrat.
Does the term “rich opportunist” come to mind?
If it doesn’t, please explain why. Because I don’t know.
