Trump As President
Flopping Aces ^ | 04-10-11 | James Raider

Posted on 04/10/2011 11:02:20 AM PDT by Starman417

TRUMP - The analysis begins in earnest as it should. Obama has announced his reelection campaign from the vantage and with the advantage of the bully pulpit. Contenders are lining up as America as America struggles through a long recession, yearning for strong decisive leadership.

Donald Trump has teased the electorate in the past, pretending to seriously consider a run for the White House. This Presidential election finds Republican support for some politically green but very appealing potential candidates. These may well bide their time and wait until 2016 before displaying the audacity to become pretenders to the seat in the Oval Office. Past analysis such as Obama – The First Tell, was helpful in anticipating a President Elect’s road ahead. Trump’s superficial relationship with the voting public has been distorted by its inevitable distance from an unusual celebrity billionaire. Donald Trump has delighted in each moment of attention he has been able to attract by jumping onto the spotlight dot. His reach into our communal consciousness begs a little scrutiny.

• Trump is not ideologically anchored. This moves his appeal factor positively as he will carry little obligation to either political party. He will also present a more refreshing alternative to a public tired of Washington indebtedness to special interests. At the very least, he will be more honest with how he feels, and he will easily be more knowledgeable with on all topics than what we have seen subjected to since the last Presidential election.

• A lack of ideological fervor also makes it more likely that from his perch in the Oval Office he would be a pragmatist. Unlike the embarrassingly far “left” rooted individuals choking the Obama Administration, Trump would most probably pluck the best talent, however it might present itself, wherever he could find it, and in whatever political flavor it might be drenched.

• His insecurities mean his ego can be stroked to get his favor and attention, but he isn't narcissistic. In Trump’s case the insecurities also suggest that he is driven to succeed.

• Trump will surround himself with experienced talent, and it is unlikely that he will punt important decisions down the road, or to someone else, unlike Obama who is clearly controlled by his handlers and seems ready, willing and able, to have others take care of business. If and when America elects Trump, he will be the President, NOT one of his handlers.

Trump will enter the race, do a few debates, get his message out and then drop out. He already has made a huge diff talking about the usurper and Americans should thank this great Patriot!!

So that’s it! Whatever it is, it’s very poorly written.

My daughter went to Geno’s Steaks in South Philly last night. She was excited to see that Joey Vento, one of the most patriotic Americans I know, has a sign saying Joey Vento supports Trump for President. Mr. Vento is a guy who puts his money were his mouth is and when he put up a sign saying “You must speak English” he paid his way through the courts. He constantly pays for commercial spots to defend this Nation, calling for repeal of Obamacare, reform of illegal immigration, cutting the deficit and the list can go on. If Donald Trump has Mr. Vento’s support, I can not think of a better endorsement. America needs to be Trumped.

Trump is a JOKE!!!

He loves Hillary.

Just a few weeks ago I heard him raving about what a great mayor Rahm will be.

And he has the nerve to think we Conservatives will welcome him and possibly give him our vote?

He is on drugs.

The writer speaks of "ideological anchor(ing)."

The single ideological anchor for any worthy American President should be the doctrines expressed in the Declaration of Independence and structured into a form of self-government by the Constitution of the United States.

That ideological grounding was good enough for George Washington, and it remains the greatest philosophical foundation for a President who wishes to promote and preserve liberty.

Being President is not about personality, magnetism, personal wealth, or ability to talk.

Being President is about inspiring the Constitution's "only keepers (Justice Story)"--"We, the People"--to keep the light of liberty bright for another 200 years. That is what President Reagan sought to accomplish, and it should be the goal of any aspiring candidate.

That light is getting dimmer every day, as the nation hurries toward the ideas of Mao, Marx, and Lenin, and away from the ideas of its own founding period.

No those on drugs are the people who think that Romney, Huckabee, Daniels, Palin even have a shot to come close to Obama. Trump or Christie will be the only 2 able to beat Obama if he does not leave office due to illness. Romney will get crushed on Healthcare, Huckabee’s retraction on Obama’s birth will draw criticism, Daniels-BORING and Palin will not be able to hold her own in a debate. During a debate Trump will toss all kinds of stuff at Obama and he will not be able to rehearse enough to prepare for answers. He will be thrown off his great debate trait.

Often and that is why I have said what I have said. Have you heard Obama debate? That was his career before being President. I am a huge fan of Palin’s but she is to cautious when she speaks. Perfect example is the BC issue, why hasn’t Sarah Palin ever came out and said anything? Because she is cautious. And in a debate with someone who is as rehearsed as Obama you are going to need to take risk and just throw things at him. Trump takes risks, that is why he is so successful and will beat Obama.

“Trump is not a nut like Perot was.”

Perot was not nutty about the debt.

The attention he gave to that issue prompted the Congress to balance the budget, and the President to sign that budget and take credit for it.

Democrats are STILL taking credit for that brief span of years with balanced budgets.

So give me “nutty” candidates who promote correct policies every time, instead of “normal” candidates that go along to get along, and continue insane policies.

That includes the vast majority of democrats and Republicans, btw.

So if you want to call Trump a nut, fine. If it takes another nut to get elected in order to get a President who will balance the budget, so be it.

Maybe being a nut is in the eye of the beholder.

I see just about the opposite, example of how he gets lost without the teleprompter, did you see the interview with Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren? Palin quite obviously has the talent you say she lacks, go look at the Biden debate, and Trump is haphazard Rino at best.

Apparently Obama won the debate he became President and McCain did not. As far as Palin debating Biden, I believe a fourth grader could beat Biden. So I don’t think you should really use him to make your case. Still waiting for a response on why Palin did not bring up the BC issue?

It may be next week if your waiting on me, but you could check her response here, and if you go by who won a debate, Alan Keyes never lost, and would have been elected over Bush and McCain;

Thanks for making my point, Palin dodged taking a side. Trump has the guts to say something isn’t right here and needs to be further investigated. Palin’s answer is I believe he was born in Hawaii but if Donald wants to spend his money go for it. And Mr. Keyes apparently did not win the debate because he didn’t win the voters. FYI debates are won by the number of votes, because that is what matters at the end of the day.

Trump is late to the game, initially stated he also said Hawaii, so that seems to be a catch-all. There is nothing to dodge because there is nothing that can apparently be done until states require it for the ballot.

What Trump’s investigators find will be everything discussed here over the past 3 years, and what has been done? Nothing. So Trump can be as loud and boisterous as he wants, the popularity of Trump may have some appeal, but if it leads to more government dependents and other liberal policies, we will be right back here belly-aching about another RINO.

Spin, spin, spin. I don’t care if he came in the beginning, middle or late to the game he is the only one not afraid to open his mouth. If something is discovered you can be damn sure Trump is not going to lie down and keep it to himself. He will command the news and demand action, and it will happen. Squeaky wheel gets the oil.

Were you in another dimension or something in November? The people spoke and the Government, even Obama, listened to their voices. Our representatives either listen or they leave. The people govern this Country not the politicians. Trump as President will be one part of the Government but not its total. If he starts going lib on us, we have the power to stop him through the Congress. Trump is a true Capitalist so he can’t be a lib. Kind of like saying you are Catholic but being pro-choice. Either you are one or the other, can’t be both.

No, I was a conservative then too, and everyone at Free Republic was not afraid to open his mouth, and supporting Harry Reid is something we conservative didn’t do no matter what; even Joe the Plumber figured that out before the 2008 election, what took Don so long? Has Joe got a better ability to reason out which candidates to support?

Meet Donald Trump, Sudden Right-Wing Conservative: Contributions, Abortion, Health Care, and Taxes
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2700816/posts

Donald Trump Political Donations: Might as well start here:

Charlie Rangel (D-NY): 2006 – $10,000 Yes, he of corruption, tax evasion, and mass liberalism

Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) $12,000 Total, $2,000 in 2006 Re-election

Harry Reid: Donated $4,800 in 2010 to Reid to defeat Sharon Angle. $10,400 to Reid overall

Chuck Schumer: Donated $4,000 during 2010 Election Cycle

Kirsten Gillibrand: $5,800 over past 2 cycles

Ted Kennedy: $7,000

John Kerry $5,500 ($2,000 in 2004 Pres race, which he also gave Bush $2,000. How bi-partisan!)

Democratic Senatorial Committee: $116,000 (versus $30K to GOP equivalent)

Donald Trump Now: “As you know, I’m pro-life… I’m forming an opinion, I’m forming a very strong opinion but I’ll let you know in about three or four weeks if I decided to.”

Healthcare,: “I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on health. It is an unacceptable but accurate fact that the number of uninsured Americans has risen to 42 million. Working out detailed plans will take time. But the goal should be clear: Our people are our greatest asset. We must take care of our own. We must have universal healthcare. “

My point was Perot’s superb idea: balance the budget.

Message vs. messenger, comprende?
