The questions that I’d ask Bloomberg tonight …

I expect Bloomberg to be better prepared tonight, but expect that he’ll continue to take incoming fire from the other candidates.

Just to make him squirm, here’s the first question that I’d like to see somebody ask him:

Mr. Blumberg, when you were mayor of NYC, you supported the policing policy called stop & frisk.

The murder rate in NYC dropped significantly when stop & frisk was enforced.

But, the  policy disproportionately impacted young minority males.

You recently apologized for supporting stop & frisk.

Does that mean that, if you had it to do over again, you would have halted stop & frisk and accepted a continuing higher murder rate?

Easy answer: “I would have halted stop & frisk, and doubled down on other murder prevention initiatives such as ….”

My bet: Bloomberg will freeze and blow it if the question is asked.

And, here’s the pivotal question that I’d ask…

=============

The 3rd party question:

Mayor Bloomberg, if you fail to win the Democratic Party’s nomination, will you wholeheartedly support the party’s candidate and will you unequivocally promise to rule out running as a 3rd party candidate ?

=============

I’d expect him to answer “yeah, yeah” to the question.

And, I’d expect him to reverse course when he realizes that running as a 3rd party candidate might be his best shot at the presidency.

More on that tomorrow …
