#2 So 45 reporters Bloomburg employees showed up. Good thing he made it mandatory.

#3 Blinded by his own ego. Just another loser.

#4 I am encouraged by the sheer idiocy and arrogance of Bloomberg’s staff. Waxahachie, really? The wife and I stopped into a Mexican grill there for breakfast on our way home from the high school football playoffs the Sunday before Christmas, and we watched the church crowd come in. None of those people, Hispanic or Anglo, would ever vote for the little troll.

#5 None of the Dem candidates are drawing much interest or a crowd. Their policies suck.

#6 All he has to do is to repeat this a 1000 times and he'll have himself a trump rally!

#7 Betting pool for how much Bloomie will end up spending per vote received?
$10,000?
$100,000?

#8 Those 45 people:

"You mean this isn't where to sign onto the Judge Judy show?"

#9  During his 13-minute stump speech

Long enough to eat a burger with fries, I s’pose, but not really excite the listener. “Vote for me — I’m everything you like about teh billionaire OrangeMan, but without any of the icky bits.”

#10 Bloomberg will not get the nomination, but if he supports the winner financially to prevent a Trump reelection, this will matter. He can independently attack Trump with costly ads.

Biden's war chest is quite weak. If Bloomberg supports him (and he certainly prefers Biden to Warren or Sanders), this could be a game changer.

#11 Money doesn't matter anymore EC. The media market is so completely over saturated with noise that ad spending makes no difference. Hillary vastly outspent Trump and still lost.

This election will be determined mainly on African-American turnout & preference.

If A-As stay home, OR if they do turn out in decent numbers but "only" vote 80% Democratic, then Trump wins OH WI and MI, i.e. he wins easily.

#12 A-As hate Bloomberg and are not excited by any of the lefty candidates.

#13 They won't vote for Bloomberg but Bloomberg can fire a lot of attacks on Trump. It's a personal thing, too, I think.

#14 Ads don't matter. Ads are a waste of $$$.
Turnout is everything.

#15 If ads didn't matter nobody would waste money on them.
A billion spent the right way will have an impact.

#16 Btw I'm watching the Iowa debate. Truly a waste of time. The CNN moderators are even worse than the candidates.

#17 Ads used to matter a great deal. But so many voters made up their minds following events in 2016, 2018, and 2019, that ads matter much less now.

Also, the common culture is much smaller than it used to be. The left and the right tend to watch different television shows, see different films, avoid each other on Facebook and Twitter... so ads seen by one side mostly won’t be seen by the other, and will have less impact when they're encountered.

#18 VodkaPundit liveblogged the debate here. It didn’t seem very interesting.

#19 I guess a lot of vodka was destroyed in the process...
