#1 This is great - a big-spending late to the party presidential campaign by a hypocritical billionaire with piss poor political instincts in an already overcrowded field. He'll piss away about 20% of his fortune in the process, weakening what little appeal he has going forward. More of this, please, and pass the popcorn.

#2 I don't think Steyer will get into the July 30-31 debates as he is running out of time to meet the donor and polling thresholds.

Perhaps he is thinking that when 10 or so drop out in August that he can then be in the Sept 12-13 debates.

Or perhaps he is just flying blind and dumb.

#3 Or perhaps he is just flying blind and dumb.

That's the way I see it. As a wise San Francisco policeman once said, a man's gotta know his limitations, and Steyer does not. Let him piss away his fortune.

#4 Is this guy retarded?

Or is he trying to throw away his money?

Soros at least has a strategy behind his political spending. This maroon just seems to be lighting cigars with $100 bills

#5 These entrants with big money and vacant stares are the idiots who believe the Democrat propaganda machine about Trump. That he's an ignoramus brat who the stupid American public happened to elect because they don't know what's good for them. They think "If he can be elected , why can't I? It just takes charm and money I suppose.If nothing my stocks might go up if I get enough votes." Imbeciles.

#6 Maybe he became a "billionaire" in a similar way to Epstein's "billions".

#7 And the other candidates have to handle him with kid gloves because whichever one becomes the eventual nominee will want money from him after he drops back out.

#8 A big money interest lefty attacks "Big-Money Interests".

Seems to me he is more interested in taking out some future competitors.

#9 Ads will run nationally on CNN and MSNBC

Preaching to an ever-shrinking choir.

#10 One more reason to turn the damn TV off. I can't stand the smug, sanctimonious tone of voice this guy uses in his TV ads. He's a creep and I'm hoping that even Democrats can see it but with Democrats you never know and, besides, who else do they have?

#11 Lefties have no problem with billionaires as long as they fund the left. Lefties have no problem with hypocrisy as long as it is in the service of the left. Lefties have no sense of irony at all.

#12 ^ the leader of the real National Socialist Workers Party had no problem working with them.

#13 Disagree with many of the comments here. This guy is dangerous, don't ignore him.

On what do you base this assessment, Thralet Ebbeaque9151?
