Self promotion is winning. Not a surprise.

And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them.

Trump Effd up. He did not see the Libya thingy coming and it took the starch right out of his shorts.

Same for Glory Allready.

I’m thinking since Allred’s “October Surprise” turned out to be a dud, that maybe Donald held back. Not sure what to call it at this point.

Someone who loved helping more than hiding would take the offer.

“if Pres. Obama releases his college records and his passport records, then Trump will give a $5 million check to a charity of President Obama’s choice.”

released by oct. 31

I call it a distraction from the Libya debacle.

Why didn’t Trump throw down this challenge before the debates???

Trump’s challenge would have been more effective if he had lined up some heavyweights to support him: i.e. Cheney, Rumsfeld, McCain and a few conservative celebrities.

He is viewed as just another narcissist Billy Clinton with bad hair.

RELEASE YOUR RECORDS... AND I WRITE A CHECK FOR $5 MILLION TO THE CHARITY OF YOUR CHOICE!!

Donald screwed up. He should have said I will release it to Michelle's charity of choice that supports children with cancer!

If he would have done it that way he would have made Obama look like a total loser for denying $5 million easy money to a children's charity.

It smells to me like Trump has the records; but his lawyers advised him not to reveal them because of whatever strings he pulled to get them. So rather than reveal them, he put a challenge to see what Obama will do. It reminds me of the Rush Limbaugh table-turning on Dirty Harry Reid, which ended up garnering a huge donation to the war wounded.

Not only will Obama have to ignore this and look bad, or reveal and look bad or possibly be unseated; he would also have to reveal his left-wing charity choices. Any way he turns, it’s a trap.

Well played, Donald. Even if it comes to nothing. It still leaves a big skid mark of doubt.

Last week, he was calling his grand announcement ‘a game changer’ against Obama.

==

That would only be true if (1) his $5 million produced something and (2) that something was massively embarrassing.

==

Trump’s flopped. Alred’s fizzled, depending on what the Judge determines — later.

This is just about the best possible “surprise.” I’m relieved. My expectations were very low.

Donald is a goof. I knew this was going to be a dud. He just needed attention again. How many times are we going to give this guy any credence? It is even funnier that some FREEPERS are sticking up for him.....lol. Some FREEPERS will support anyone and everyone no matter how ridiculous.

Your take on Trump is absolutely brilliant. What most people here do not understand is Trump knows how to play hardball. Trump has amassed a successful business and personal fortune worth 1000 times larger than most posters who can not see how shrewd Trump is playing this. You do not become that successful by being stupid.

Its not the kind of thing that the press will be forced to report, so nobody will hear about it wonder about Obama’s records.

I agree, Trump already has the records. For whatever reason he was encouraged to take a step back.

So he decided to demonstrate that there is nothing that could be done and no amount of money to encourage obama to reveal who he is and where he came from.

Timing was horrible.

Only way I’d have respect for trump is if this is a game.

1. Get the records.
2. Wait for last days of election.
3. Make this offer knowing Obama won’t agree.
4. Release the records nov 1. Assuming they art bad grades, Marxist classes, and possibly foreign student designation.

If he’s got noting, screw him and he wasted a ton of time with his ego. N

If nothing else, it will get some people questioning hussein. Sure, the money is safe and will never leave Trump’s account but he planted a major slap down on him.

A little EXTRA reminder of O's lying existence from day one is welcomed and encouraged.

This is FREE O BADvertizing, Trump gets big microphone for free, O is back in corner where he started. As to what O does with it, well he's toast no matter how he responds or doesn't. I say it forces his lying hand - again.

Like everyone else who has been aware that Obama’s past is quite suspicious and full of lies and half-truths, Trump knows that the college records would reveal that Obama is not legit on several fronts. I don't see a problem in Trumps’s challenge, but I don't think he has a smoking gun.

Perhaps Trump should offer the $5 million to anyone who can reveal his records....then you would get a result! $5 million is peanuts to Obama......he is used to wasting billions and trillions. His refusal to accept the challenge will not paint him as a Scrooge to his followers....they will defend him no matter what. Stupid is stupid. Besides, Obama will NEVER willingly reveal his records....he knows what is in them. I would not put it past him to pay off someone to forge what exists, and then he will suddenly show them......just like the fake birth certificate.

The key is the Occidental record department. That is where the truth is. It is almost a given that he would have applied as a foreign student. It seems to me, that in a case like this there would be a legal way to sue for the records. I do not understand why this cannot be done. It is actually a case of national security. In the future, there should be a law that all records of politicians should be open to a committee, if not the entire public. This should NEVER happen again.

At least Trump is trying to do what he can to help the cause of preventing another 4 years of this national disgrace and national disaster.
