I think it is great considering the fact that so many on DU are already celebrating the fact that they believe Obama has already removed him from contention. I think “The Donald” has the goods on Obama and the Bamster knows it!

I saw him on TV saying that after the last episode of his TV show, he’s going to announce, and that “some of you will be surprised.” Possibly, he’s just trying to drum up interest. But the other possibility is that he’s going to announce that he’s endorsing Obama. I can’t think of anything else that would surprise those guys.

Or perhaps he’s announcing that he’ll run as a Dem and challenge Obama.

The Donald needs to back a conservative winner, Palin, if she runs, Cain, West..., whomever. As a claimed convert to the Republican Party, and to conservatism. Now is the time for him to be a team player. Maybe he can stop donating to Democrats, for a start.

no doubt his mind was made up after the low class childish jabs taken at him by obama on saturday night. Good, I have no intention voting for him in the primary but am anxious to see him bloody up obama for the real candidate.

Trump reads Obama just right. And Trump got the response he expected last night....for millions to see.

That was not suppose to be a Trump roast...not at all.

In short, Obama made a total a** of himself....

I think it is fair in every way to assert that a National Enquirer president would form a National Enquirer cabinet.

What cabinet posts would Lindsay Lohan, and Brad Pitt have?

Would we get an oval office press Conference about how the Donald lost 50 lbs in just 60 days to save his third or fourth marriage?

With most candidates, this question would be insulting or over the top.

But this is the crowd the Donald has run with for decades - so not only is it fair to ask, it is probably patriotic to ask it at every juncture so that the American people don't contemplate a Trump presidency without examining All aspects of what we know about his lifestyle and associates.

Personally, I'm glad Trump is in the race.

From what I can tell at this time I would vote for him over anyone but Palin.

The GOP crowd is sad indeed. At least Trump is willing the shake things up and call out the traitors (that includes both GOP and Dim) on their nefarious deeds.

You are delusional. Donald not only is a disaster, he is also a cheap bastard. He might run if someone paid the filing fee or if made some money doing it.

The best description of Trump is the British meaning of the word trump (f*rt) http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=fart%20trump . A guy that spends time checking his own daughter out and wondering about what ifs....

Wasn’t the Apprentice just renewed ? lol.

I would support Trump as an Independent candidate but he has made clear it won’t be at the Republican candidate’s expense. And taking more votes from Obama is an unlikely scenario. Besides having no chance at victory himself, of course.

I am with you - I have had my fill of the Rats as well as their “why can’t we just get along” siblings in the Republicrat party. It is time for someone NEW that is not a politician, who has experience actually making money, and who doesn’t try to kiss his enemies butts.

Let’s clean DC out of the professional politicians.

Other than Palin, nobody in the GOP excites anyone besides the Establishment GOP.

I'm TIRED of their sh!t.

Dole. McCain. Romney. Pawlenty. The list is longer than my arm.

I'[m done with 'em. Either we remake this party or we're going to have to figure something else out 'cause they DO NOT represent our interests in DC.

Still not a definite decision. If Trump makes it official, I say the proverbial s**t is about to hit the proverbial fan for the GOP and conservatives in general. But is he really running, or just making as much noise as possible?

If someone wanted to throw American politics into total chaos, they’d demand Trump get in. Obama and the Dems will have a field day!

My first choice is Palin/West 2012 but since they are not in the race at this time, I can only choose from those saying they are willing to run. I do believe that Trump has the goods on Obama and I believe he’s going to use them soon.

Who do you want for the GOP candidate?

Exactly. I don't see Trump being a politician first as in makes decisions so he can get reelected. I think he and his ego would love to go down in the history books as the man who turned a crashing and burning economy around. I also like the idea that Trump will call in the best and brightest to advise him. That has been his standard MO. Interesting times, but for sure if am fed up, especially with those who think it is about "their" candidate and not about THE candidate who will save our Republic. Not sure yet if it is Trump, but I am not impressed with the others so far. Perhaps they will pull their heads out.

“Trump is pro-business, pro-America, and anti-Obama.”

I’ll give you the first two, and possibly the third, but mostly, he is pro Donald. I’m not eager to exchange one narcissist for another, acknowledging that it is an inescapable malady among politicians, but in smaller doses for most. However, if Trump were to somehow get the Republican nomination, I would vote for him. I would vote for my garbage collector over Odumbo.

It goes with the candidate, and that is not rationably deniable.

Don't make me post pictures of typical tabloid papers delineating Trump's hedonistice lifestyle and sleezy celebrity companions.

I didn't suggest anything different than that he would continue to operate in the future as he has in the past.

If it makes you feel better, I don't cut women who marry addicts "Because I know he'll change once we're married" any slack either.

Donald is Donald, and he isn't going to morph into Reagan.
