Rumors Grow That Michael Bloomberg Is Going To Be The Next Treasury Secretary "Kudlow says he heard from "deep insiders" that the pick has been made and it's Bloomberg." In an interview with John Gambling, Emperor Bloomberg said that if he became Gov. Carl Paladino would not be able to cut anything from the budget in NY because it's all somebody's pet project and he had no idea street signs in NY would have to be changed to upper and lower case. Bloomberg as Sec Tres is a great platform to challenge Obama in 2012. Watch your back, Barry!
