Did Bloomberg Rip Obama For Waffling on His Support For Ground Zero Mosque?

(NY Post)- In a candid magazine interview, Mayor Bloomberg said President Obama should have hired better advisors and reiterated that he has no intention to run against him in 2012.

“The president, I think, needs some better advisors,” Bloomberg said in the December issue of GQ magazine. “He campaigns, ‘I’m going to do A,’ and then he doesn’t do it.”
Bloomberg has mostly shied away from publicly blasting Obama.

The mayor was not specific in his criticism and did not name any White House advisors by name.

As an example of Obama being ill-advised, Bloomberg said the Ground Zero mosque controversy over the summer was a perfect example.

“If you’re going to stand up for the mosque Friday night, you don’t walk away from it Saturday morning,” said Bloomberg, who supports plans to build a mosque and Islamic cultural center just two blocks from the World Trade Center site.

  • ha cbk.. funny. LOL..

    bloomberg should be the last person talking about obama. the city is falling prey to violence, murder, rape and street muggings.. what the heck is he doing about it????

    he needs to put his nose back in the issues at hand in NYC and stop butting in where his nose certainly does not belong.

  • just one news story of many.... http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2010/12/03/2010-12-03_ice_pick_thug_strikes_again_video_catches_bandit_menacing_women_in_stuyvesant_to.html


     


    not only should they worry about robberies and muggings skyrocketting in new york city...


    they should worry about the perverts on the trains harrassing women.


    my friend told me today she tried to knock a man down after he fondled her butt by pushing into her and moaning in her ear..


    dispicable perverts at work.. yeah bloomie .. get a handle on this and quit blabbering your mouth about what advice obama gets or not.. cause obviously you are in bad need of it.

  • Why not, everyone else is. I think Politicians on both sides are feeling pretty comfortable in doing it these days

  • Perhaps he did. Rightfully so, Obama should have stood firm in his support instead of coming out the next day with "well, what I meant to say is..."
