Mike Bloomberg’s Technocratic Threat

Rich Lowry, National Review

Trump, whatever his personal and institutional failings, is backstopped by a conservative legal movement that has worked with him to pump originalist judges through the Senate. These judges will remain a bulwark of conservative constitutionalism long after Trump has departed the scene. Bloomberg’s technocratic instincts, in contrast, run with the grain of contemporary progressivism. There will be no checks on his natural tendency toward unilateral rule through the administrative state. Democrats may yet come to believe that only Mike Bloomberg can save the country — but what he emphatically won’t be saving is a view of the government as circumscribed by an old, yet sacrosanct, Constitution.
