Bloomberg Backs Repeal Of Law He Championed

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A mayor supporting the repeal of a law that he’s responsible for sounds unusual, yet that was Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s position on term limits.

Two years ago, the mayor pushed the City Council to extend the limit to three terms so he could run for re-election. At the time, the mayor said the City needed him to get through the financial crisis.

Now he’s behind a measure to make it two terms again.

City voters will decide in a ballot measure in one week.

    The one thing he can’t buy, and never will be able to buy is my vote. It is not for sale.

    HOPEFULLY HE GETS BRAIN CANCER AND DIES BEFORE THE TERM IS UP

    The little dictator is aiming for Presidency. Watch him repeal term limits on the Presidential level – due to an “emergency” (just like Hitler did). Changing the laws to suit his fascist whims at will.

    SIG HEIL!!

    I’m so glad he came to his senses. Not only should term limits be re-instated, the “new” law needs to be a hard limit. It cannot be changed on a whim by a mayor or city council; only voters should have the right to ammend the law. Beyond that, the end of this egomaniac’s tenure can’t come soon enough.

    Soooo typical of Bloomie! Maybe the City voters should have him removed.
