There’s been speculation that after leaving office Mayor Bloomberg will tinker with the Financial Times or continue to push issues like gun control and gay rights via his super-PAC, but apparently his goals are far less noble. Taxi Club Management CEO Gene Freidman says he approached Bloomberg a day after a court blocked his plan to replace the city’s taxi fleet with the Taxi of Tomorrow. “He turns to me, and said, ‘Come January 1st, when I am out of office, I am going to destroy your f–king industry,’ ” claims Freidman. “It was like Gene had kidnapped his child. He used the f-word twice,” an unnamed witness tells the Post. You don’t even want to know what will happen to those who dare to drink a Big Gulp in the former mayor’s presence.
Thanksgiving, Christmas and then maybe a few weeks into January — that’s when you really gotta sit down, talk to your advisers and say, ‘Look, do I have a chance?’ I think I know why I would want to run. I think I know what I think this country should do and what I would do. But I just don’t know whether it’s possible.
