Bloomberg Charges Neither Party Stands for Anything

Michael Bloomberg has demonstrated why he became an independent by blasting both parties for not standing for anything:

Bloomberg, who left the GOP and is asked almost daily about running for president, said Wednesday that neither the Republican nor Democratic Party “stands for anything.”

“There isn’t any philosophy” for either party, he said after a speech on improving public schools.

Bloomberg has repeatedly expressed frustration with Congress, saying lawmakers favor partisanship over progress and have failed to deal with immigration, health care or education.

“Party discipline requires you to make decisions based on what’s good for the party rather than what the merits are of the piece of legislation before you,” he said.

There certainly is some truth in what he says, but if Bloomberg is really planning to run for President I’d also like a better idea of exactly what he stands for. Of course, for the moment, Bloomberg states he does not plan to run.
