NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg Wants David Letterman's Job (VIDEO)

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg Wants David Letterman's JobMichael Bloomberg is the 10th richest man in America, and the 23rd richest man in the world. He's worth more than $18 billion. And, oh yeah, he's also the mayor of New York City. But that doesn't mean that he wouldn't consider starting a new career. On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Bloomberg expressed a desire for David Letterman's job.

Currently, Bloomberg is caught up in the seemingly never-ending "Ground Zero Mosque" controversy. (And let's pause, as always, to point out that it's not technically a mosque, and isn't technically at Ground Zero.) The mayor said that he supports the right of the builders to construct the Islamic center, adding that they have a "First Amendment" right to build and worship wherever they want.

Bloomberg pointed out that even though a lot of people are offended by building the mosque in that area, it isn't actually pristine ground. For instance, there are adult bars and strip clubs right nearby. Letterman seemed intrigued by this, and wanted more precise directions. "Where are these 'adult bars' you speak of?" he asked. We're sure that Dave only wanted to know this because he's abstractly interested in the Ground Zero debate.

Still, Mike may be a little worn out by all the controversy, and anyway, his last term as mayor will end in a couple of years. When asked what his future plans were, Bloomberg mentioned maybe having his own talk show -- one that started around 11:35PM, on the CBS Television Network ...

In response to this, Letterman looked nervous, and tugged awkwardly at his lapel. Yeah, you're probably right to be nervous, Dave. After all, if he really wanted to, Bloomberg could just buy the entire network, and put himself on every single show.

The only people taking a chance on killing more Americans are those who are protesting against the project. They may as well be making al-Qaeda recruiting videos.

Are people aware that Muslims are currently praying at that location? The details that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wants at this new center leaves me feeling uneasy. He states ALL religions are welcomed but there is a special area only for Muslims to pray. You decide.

F**k Bloomberg and his muslims. The founding fathers wheren't thinking muslim when they wrote the First Amendment. These murderers and thugs are using our Constitution to take over a Judeo-Christian Society. They're killing us, our culture, and the American way of life. Stop the take-over. What the hell have they ever done for America, beside fly planes into two towers and kill 3000 Americans.

Why does the media continue to ignore the reason the radical Muslims want to build their Victory Mosque at Ground Zero? They also keep up the lies that it is "not a mosque and not at ground zero?" This is rediculous! It certainly is a Mosque and it is at Ground Zero of the worst Muslim Terrorist attack on our country, where Muslims on 9/11/01 mass murdered 3,000 innocent people in the name of Islam! The very building where the Victory Mosque is being built WAS damaged by the 9/11 Muslim Terrorist Attack and pieces of the hijacked plane were recovered from THAT building. The builders of the Mosque at Ground Zero actually called it the Mosque at Ground Zero in their original announcements and plans to build it, and only changed this language once they were found out by concerned Americans (about 70% in recent polls) who are against building a Mosque on Ground Zero. An Islamic tradition for hundreds of years calls for building a Victory Mosque on the site of their CONQUESTS. This is why they originally called this Mosque at Ground Zero the "Cordoba Project" named after another Victory Mosque built in Cordoba Spain after the Muslims invaded and CONQUERED Spain! Stop Lying! It certainly IS a Mosque, it is being intentionally built at Ground Zero to claim Victory and Conquest for the Islamic Terrorist attack on 9/11. They Must Be Stopped!! For more information, and to sign the petition to STOP THE MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO, please go to www.aclj.com and PLEASE VOTE OUT THESE DEMOCRATS WHO ALONG WITH HAMAS AND OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS, SO STRONGLY SUPPORT THIS ISLAMIC VICTORY MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO.

Of course he is going to say what his good buddy Obama says. How about we go over to middle eastern countries and demand to build churches and burn their flags. Wouldn't work, and shouldn't work here, especially in NYC. It is the same as telling the Mexican drug cartel to come to a major city and open a store. Letterman dropped the ball by not showing a backbone, unless he agrees with him!!
