The Politicker posted this video of Mayor Mike going after both Republican and Democrats during a Crain's Business breakfast. Specifically, when questioned by WNYC's Brian Lehrer, Mayor Bloomberg said, "I don’t think I disagree with what any national party stands for because I don’t think either national party stands for anything." Cue the cheers!
More shocking was Mayor Bloomberg's thoughts on crowded conditions of the 4/5/6, "I take the Lex line most days and it's not that crowded. So you stand next to people. Get real. This is New York. What's wrong with that?" Has anyone seen Mayor Bloomberg riding subway? Doesn't he travel with a security detail? Anyway, he claimed being stuck in the subway was pleasant one time, so we take what he says with a grain of salt.
And congestion pricing opponent City Councilman David Weprin said about Bloomberg's subway POV, "He doesn't take [the subway] from Queens." Heh!
