A lot of people seem to be making a big deal out of Romney meeting with Bloomberg, and I’ve heard a few speculate that perhaps Bloomberg will be Romney’s VP pick. That gave me a strange sense of Deja Vu. This isn’t something I’d read all that much into. If you’re a Presidential Candidate, and you make a trip to New York City, you’re pretty much obligated to drop in on the mayor. It’s just politeness. Even I wouldn’t turn my nose up at the Mayor, and if I met with him, I’d certainly talk about gun control.
I was initially a lot more concerned about Bork on his judicial advisory committee, but a lot of folks in the comments noted that Alan Gura is also on the committee, and that in DC, these things are mostly a way to signal to different parts of the base. In other words, they are BS.
