I've always wondered what Bloomberg fans are seeing that I'm not. What has Bloomberg accomplished that is worthy of such accolades? Is switching from Republican to Independent a fast track to political junkie cult worship? Even if you were only became a Republican to dodge a crowded Democratic primary and had been a Democrat your entire life prior to that point? I'll never understand the hype. FWIW, I doubt Bloomberg will ever understand the hype either.

HP for his attacks on the right of free speech, the right of free assembly, buying off city councilors so that he he could run for a third term, for being a moderate hero, and for attacking public education and the teachers' unions.

He has been a good mayor. He's passed a lot of valuable social and public health policy that both Democrats and Republicans have been afraid to do. He's balanced budgets by raising taxes, rather than forcing the poor to shoulder all the weight. He's increased teacher's salaries. And he's implemented a lot of anti-poverty programs, while defending the necessity of taxation and pointing out the rising income inequality gap in the country, something that you'd never hear from Republicans or even most Democrats. Of course he's far from perfect, but as far as American politicians go, he's better than most.

He's incredibly good for someone with the R next to his name, and hugely preferable to the fascist Giuliani, though obviously he's not really one of that horrible ilk.  But still a clear hp for the wealth and the anti-occupy actions.

We've had to deal with overzealous politicans banning junk food in Ontario (cough, Mr. McGuinty). It, to me, is an abomination of the highest degree. It is no politician's business to overreach their "power" that far. I know this sounds narrow, but I really don't care. Stay out of our lives.

HP, almost strictly for the soda ban.

Also it's funny that people in this thread keep mentioning a "soda ban" when Bloomberg hasn't banned soda at all.
