Posted on 12/08/2011 4:36:29 PM PST by sushiman
Looks like this debate is doomed .
If he runs, which he may, his impartiality would be called into question. I can’t believe people are stupid enough to think this is a good idea.
I am not sure what to say. I do know that the Republican establishment is against any Republican from attending the debate. I don’t know if that is Bachmans reason or not.
One on one between Newt and Santorum. Whoopee.
It will be amusing to see if Newt goes forward. It is hardly to his advantage to go one on one with a conservative one percenter. If the debate goes forward, it will be a show-down between the smug professor and the smart-ass kid in the front row is always raising his hand to show off in the front of the class.
I think Newt is a Trump suck up.
Supposedly he is anti-Obama . Why would he run third party ?
No proof, other than his lisp makes Liberace sound like Clint Eastwood.
Actually, that fact that she is a lawyer who worked for the IRS and is suffering from Megalomania is enough for me to steer clear.
That and her ineffective leadership of the "Tea Party Caucus", who can be counted on to not vote as a bloc and therefore is not worth spit.
He’s the king of suck-ups. That’s why, unless Trump calls it off, Newt will go forward with this farce.
Trump is an idea-free, attention-seeking clown. And no one seems to realize that he has spent his life losing money that his father made.
If Trump ran third party he’d get less votes than Nader.
But me must know that IF he ran 3rd party it would insure a 2nd Obama term .
I think you’re a major Perry suck up.
Nevertheless , it might just tip the balance to Obama .
You know I;m I’m a Perry suck up. That’s what you are when you support a candidate.
So why is Newt a major Trump suck up? For what reason?
So if a woman runs for public office, she’s gotta be a megalomaniac? Sheesh, some of you guys are weird.
Yeah, I thought that was great. The attorney generals asked great questions and you could really learn a lot about the candidates views.
Trump isnt even sure he isnt going to run. Thats about like having a debate moderated by one of the candidates.
Trump is about boosting the Trump brand. He is looking for political legitimacy to further his own cause - regardless of how silly it makes the Republican candidates look.
Er...I’m glad you agree that you’re a suck up...
The prospect of seeing the overly eager Little Ricky, the smug Newt, and the Donald all one stage trying to prove the “importance” of this farce might have some entertainment value. I, for one, plan to tune in.
I like Perry.
So why is Newt a Trump suck up?
He’s taking advantage of every opportunity to go on tv and run for the presidency. Unlike Perry, his heart is in it to win it.
Newt is a Trump suck up. He’s looking for a reality star endorsement. Newt will say anything to win.
I disagree. Trump was born almost literally with a silver spoon in his mouth. The Dopnald was born into money. His father was VERY successful. He didn’t start from a poor to middle class upbringing. On top of that, he has made one poor business venture after another. Is he broke? No. Not by any means. But neither is Kim Kardashian.
I did notice that the only thing you mentioned in my post was my slam on his financial status. Not a thing mentioned on the rest of the post. Nothing about him being a Dem in the past. Nothing about him being a “media whore”.
I’ll remind you.
“First of all, The Donald doesnt have the money he claims. 7 reported bankruptcies. I mean... he started an AIRLINE!!!! Who the hell does that and expects to make money????
He is nothing more than a celebrity. A media whore. A supposed EX-Democrat. It is VERY difficult for me to take anyone who spends time on The Howard Stern Show and the WWE seriously in a presidential media role.
Bottom line, when was the last time we heard from The Donald? A couple of months before The Apprentice came on TV.
When is he sticking his fake hair in this Presidential election? A couple of months before The Apprentice comes on TV....
Do the math folks. Not that hard....
Is it a stretch for us to keep it classy?”
Bachman, aside from getting a license to steal (law degree) and signing up to work for the IRS(unconstitutional as established by the FOUNDERS), and belonging to a "Church" that calls the Pope the "Anti-Christ", and being married to an apparently homosexual "man", is herself in the VP closet for that
DEGENERATE COWARD CON MAN FLIP SLICK WILLAD RINO ROMNEY, and has ZERO CHANCE of making the ticket.
Nice to see some are choosing not to kiss Trump`s a**. Who does that leave besides Newt?
They all should be telling Mr. Pig where to get off.
As opposed to the ones reporting their billionaire master at the “debate?”
Thank you Michelle.
Trump is forcefully inserting himself as the kingmaker in the GOP nomination process. The GOPers` paying tribute to that arrogant, self-worshipping, bullying blowhard is an infuriating act of submission.
Is the GOP in such sad shape that allowing a land-grabbing oligarch to have a major say in the party`s nominating process the only route to victory in 2012? If so, the Repubs have more problems than they can add up.
Props to all those who told Trump to piss off. I`d also like to see the pilgrimages and ring-kissing stop as well.
Who pissed in your soup? The Bachmanns are fine people.
Exposure is never a bad thing...think of this as a wrestling match where the contenders get their names and personas out there.
A lot of people may not like Trump but he is what he is - a flaky, wealthy, powerful New Yorker who is actually conservative in the economic sphere and probably “out there” in the social sphere but wouldn’t want to do anything that would bother good Christians or Jews.
I don’t know about his political aspirations. Maybe they’re real, maybe they’re hair-on-fire lunacy, although I will say he’d be a heck of a lot better mayor than Bloomberg.
Bachmann - and I hate to say it because I originally liked some of the things she said (not about her kids but about the IRS, which she actually knows something about) - is obviously trying to push Romney. I don’t know why; he’s not going to pick her as his VP, and I can’t see what upside there would be for her. Or maybe she’s just a spoiler. I don’t know.
I guess Noot and Comb-over can just hold hands and have a love fest.
Who are you suckin up to missy? Now that Cain is history.
Newsmax is an establishment owned site.
Newt will be debating Santorum.
Perry will be on bus tour campaigning face to face with Iowa Voters.
Perry’s heart is in it to win. You betcha.
So the GOP candidates should placate that a**hole so he doesn`t have a hissy and hand the election to 0bama? Appease the god, shall we?
What will drive Trump`s decision to run will be a sweetheart deal from the dems. Trump loves only one thing more than himself..and that`s $$$$... and 0bama will have a billion of them to disburse around.
Who cares what he does?
Sucking up to Newt.
Yea, Newt’s the flavor of the month.
I like a real man that when he says “I Do”, he means it.
I can trust Perry.
I saw that Bachmann went after Romney and Newt today regarding the health mandates just like Perry did.
Interesting. First time she said something in a while that I agree with. I’ll give her kudos for that.
My faith will guide me as president.
And what I mean by that is not just faith in Gods plan for us as a nation he has blessed, time and again.
But it is also faith in the ability of our people, with his help, to accomplish the impossible, the miraculous, as they have done before and will do again.
To be honest, the conservative voters have nothing to do with the GOP sticking their fingers in The Donald’s eyes. They are mad at him for bringing up Obammy’s constitutional qualification problems.
If that little treasonous crime were exposed, the GOP goes down with the DNC. The party leaders teamed up to pull a bi-partisan crime against the Republic. They are scared to death that he will use his access to the media to come after their treasonous butts.
Open borders Newt?
This is getting silly now. Trump is going to endorse one of them, and it won’t be one that dissed him.
Perhaps the backlash against The Don’s debate is because he dared to mention the Obama eligibility issue ? He refused to kiss the GOP ring and be silent about the Usurper .
