Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a third-party run for the presidency and has alerted advisers to draw up a plan for success, according to a report.
Bloomberg, 73, told friends he is prepared to spend as much as $1 billion to win the White House and set a deadline of early March for making a decision, the New York Times reported Saturday.
The idea of two megalomaniac billionaires slugging it out for the right to ruin the country is amusing, but I think Mayor Mike should return to his earlier idea:
The three-term mayor has flirted with higher office before.
He conferred with his advisers and launched polls to determine his electability for the presidency in 2008 and 2012, but decided against launching a bid. He also once flirted with the idea of running for mayor of London, after pols across the pond suggesting drafting him.
If London will have him, God bless the Queen.
