NYC Mayor Bloomberg: Don’t blame Sarah Palin

Political rhetoric not responsible for Tuscon shootings
Even progressive Michael Bloomberg says says Sarah Palin had nothing to do with last weekend’s shooting in Tucson. The New York City mayor told Politico Thursday:
I don’t think I’d blame Sarah Palin or any other individual.

I don’t think any of that (political rhetoric) had anything to do with this, but I don’t know the facts, and who knows what will eventually come out with this man?

This would appear to be a very deranged, perhaps on-drugs individual from what I’ve read.

And I think we should focus on somebody with a gun that has killed six people. And I think the president put it very well yesterday - the rhetoric should be at a discourse on the facts, and have more civility in it.
Bloomberg, a left-leaning independent whom Politico describes as "centrist," is a founder of the "No Labels" campaign.
