They must know we've had enough of both parties so they're going to plan to introduce a 3rd candidate to steal some of the vote, possibly mayor bloomberg. i dont like this....

So the two questions that come to mind are:

1) Who are they?

2) Who are "they" looking to take away votes from?

If Bloomberg is the pick, he'll draw down votes from Republicans more than Democrats, helping Obama's chance to be re-elected.

But if "they" are a group that do not wish to have Obama in again (as The Ulsterman Report suggests) a candidate who would suck away votes from Obama would make more sense.

If you look at third party candidates from the past, the main person hurt is the incumbent.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS! He will take a large chunk out of his fellow "Gay Vote", decreasing this usually Democrat Vote away from Obama, leaving the GOP nomination an easier victory!

He is far more "Democrat" than "Republican", particularly on social issues, which in a general election, is what Democrats tend to vote for and Republican tend to vote against. So...

Bad for Obama, Good for the GOP candidate.

You raise a good point on the social issues, which I wasn't thinking about specifically.

You guys only think that the Republicans are a good choice because the Democrats are so vile that they make anybody look good in comparison.

FFS! don't vote for either of them. Those two parties have been taking turns fucking you over for 200 years now.

The Americans Elect "convention" is in June, so there's plenty of time for someone other than Bloomberg to emerge. Of the people mentioned in the article linked by the OP, Bayh seems an interesting idea.

That's been their strategy all along, get some progressive shill like Bloomberg or Huntsman to dupe a small percentage of Independents into thinking its an actual alternative.
