Grumpy Old White Men, Or David Boren (?) Makes A Threat

The Bloomers (h/t Lambert) are restless and David Boren is making threats:

On Sunday, [Bloomberg] will join Democratic and Republican elder statesmen [read Grumpy Old White Men] at the University of Oklahoma in what the conveners are billing as an effort to pressure the major party candidates to renounce partisan gridlock. Former Senator David L. Boren of Oklahoma, who organized the session with former Senator Sam Nunn, a Democrat of Georgia, suggested in an interview that if the prospective major party nominees failed within two months to formally embrace bipartisanship and address the fundamental challenges facing the nation, “I would be among those who would urge Mr. Bloomberg to very seriously consider running for president as an independent.”

(Emphasis supplied.) To which I reply Bwahahahahahahaha!

Senility seems to be setting in with these Grumpy Old Men. They seem to think someone cares what they think.

Of course Bloomberg might run for President if his ego so demands. He has the billions. And he may be willing to embarrass himself so. It is up to him. Not the Bloomers.

    "vote for me because i'm different! unlike all those democratic candidates, i'm a rich white guy!"

    "vote for me, my ego's so big, my head's about to explode!"

    "vote for me! i have nothing of substance to contribute, but my campaign thinks so little of you, we're sure you won't notice!"

    hmmmmmmmmmm, maybe i missed my calling.

    as soon as you take positions on issues, it becomes partisan. Can't speak knowledgably about Born, but  Nunn came from a one party state. He isn't used to real opposition.

    As for extremism, the GOP has been my way or the highway for 8 years now. Blasting Democrats equally is idiotic.
