They kind of do with the GT350/GT350R after some Steeda work to the suspension. It is definitely no slouch. The GT500 CFTP will be as well, but most want over 120K to 150k after markups, which most of us here can agree is insane for that car and it weighs over 4000 pounds. The multi hundred thousand dollar to a million ish Ford GT got its ass handed to it by the much chear Vette ZR1 (all of Fords cars did though).

That was a great movie, I just wish they didn't alter history so much in it. But, that's the movies of course.

I watched last night and while I didn't think anyone did particularly spectacular I was surprised to see the MSM saying how well Warren did last night. I guess I just missed that?

I actually thought Bloomberg did OK for as much as the others were coming after him. But according to MSM he got "destroyed".

A surprising statistic, considering the amount of flak he took, was that Bloomberg had the least amount of speaking time.

The most "on point" pundit comment I heard was;

"Bloomberg was like a semi-retired football player coming back to the game mid-season. Everyone else on the field is sharp and ready to go, and he's still in spring training"

That's basically how it looked to me. I think he showed up weak but the other candidates have been working their messages and attacks for almost a year. He's got to catch up very very fast if he's to have a chance.

Yeah, here's the thing, Bloomberg isn't super impressive in person which is tough for a dem nominee due to the "dems fall in love, reps fall in line" maxim.

That said, I thought the Fox News headline shows the Bloomberg power:
"Bloomberg under seige at chaotic debate debut, Warren goes on attack in bid to revive campaign"
Basically the media are afraid of Bloomberg, and for good reason - further, he doesn't have that many (any?) attack vectors when pitted against Trump: Not the billionaire thing, not the NDA thing, etc. On the other hand, Bloomberg opens up massive attack vectors on Trump starting with competent management and temperament. Core media, right wing or not, is going to tread VERY CAREFULLY attacking Bloomberg.

So, in person against other lefties, Bloomberg loses the personality war, but in person and on paper against Trump, I think Bloomberg wins ... and people vote "on paper".

Even Trump will be terrified of crossing bloomberg because, if bloomberg wins Trump's power evaporates and if Bloomberg loses, he eviscerates everyone who opposed him

Onion on fire:



If he's the nominee the main attack will be a form of "The multi-millionaire career Washington senator with 3 homes wants you to pay for everyone's healthcare"

Bernie should openly ask for Russia's election help - what will Republicans say? That it's wrong?
