Donald Trump doesn't give a damn
Politico ^ | 4/5/11 | Joe Scarborough

Posted on 04/05/2011 8:56:46 AM PDT by The Big Boo

I called Trump last Friday to see if he would back off his claim that the president of the United States might be constitutionally prohibited from holding his office.

“I’m not finished with that issue by any stretch of the imagination,” Trump told me. “You mock me for that, but his own grandmother says he was born in Kenya and says she was there.”

The New York real estate mogul didn’t stop with questions about the birth certificate. Trump also claimed the president’s first book was ghostwritten by a domestic terrorist.

New poll in New Hampshire shows Trump strategy is working....

Is FR ready to set up a Trump for President Club? ....or are we still sticking with the eligibility cowards and RHINOS?

Trump is the only one potentially running who has stones where they belong.

This is a leader.

Trump is Hillary’s stalking horse. But he’s still doing a very valuable service.

Trump is for Trump, he is no ally of conservatives. He is a self promoter who is attacking Obama because he thinks it will win him some allies. When it suits him, he will be kissing Obama's and the Dims asses...

Had we had a man of Trump’s finical expertise rather than a tax cheat like Geithner, perhaps there would have been no bailouts....Trump understands money - I like his forthrightness i.e., honesty....he has a place in our government, not perhaps as President but a significant place.

It’s a fact that the most dangerous man in a fight is the one who has nothing to lose.

No matter which way the election goes, Trump will ~still~ be filthy stinking rich and powerful.

He can afford to disregard ‘polite politics’.

<0 can’t say the same.
He would lose *everything*.

This will be very...”interesting”, at least.

Social conservatives or Fiscal conservatives?

With the economy in the shape it's in now. That makes a difference.

The social issues will be focused on the Senate and Congress this time around.

Right...you can do what Trump has, in calling Obummer on his life story and a plagiarist with many more things to come...and sure Obummer is going to forgive you...

Please show me ONE Republican (socialist) that has ATTACKED Obummer in as personal a way.

You wouldn't know a burning bridge if you were trying to cross it...

you must be an eligibility coward troll...

‘“We need to seize Iraq’s oil fields,” Trump brashly said in a statement that seemed to channel Reagan’s logic regarding the Panama Canal.

“Oil is going to be at an all-time high, and when we leave Iraq, the Iranians will seize their oil within 15 minutes,” he said. “Iran is already making moves. They won’t even have to fire a bullet.”

The Donald says a Trump administration would never let that happen.

“We spent $1.5 trillion on the Iraq War. Besides, if we don’t seize the oil fields, then all of the soldiers we lost in Iraq would have died in vain.”’

If nothing else, I like that Trump is forcing the MSM to address issues that they’ve refused to - up until now. I hope he keeps picking away at it.

I agree that Trump is a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton. If you look at to whom he has given political donations in the last few elections, it is mostly for Dems. He is no conservative, to be sure.

However, I like how he is pushing this issue and the nags at The View, can’t treat him exactly the same as they would somebody else they consider to be a “birther”. His money and power generally keep him above the fray for mocking in the usual way, and even when mocked, he turns it around.

Keep pushing this, Mr. Trump.

If Trump is so conservative then why did he recently give 50,000 to Rahm Emanuals for his mayoral campaign in Chicago?

If Trump does run he will be another Ross Perot and help get Obama back in office like Ross did during the Cinton running ..

Why don't you try one of your childish, illogical tirades on this new ‘birther’ Donald Trump? And then after you get your sorry @$$ handed to you go back and apologize to WND.

This is not going to be an election year for abortion, gay marriage issues. Our nation is facing an economic crisis. While we will be looking at how the candidate regards the Constitution which is always priority, we’re looking for a candidate who runs on the same agenda as the Tea Party, low taxes, less government restrictions and a candidate with a lot of economic knowledge.

Although I normally vote for the God and Guns type candidate wearing the cowboy hat this time around it will be different.

I hope Sarah Palin and other candidates realize this is not another Election 2000 year. We’re looking for a business savoy candidate and I think the choice will be between Romney and Trump. I really cant see myself voting for Romney because he is a closeted Obamacare fan.

But the most telling critique came from Fox News’s Glenn Beck, who told Bill O’Reilly that Trump’s public statements are beginning to make him uncomfortable.

Trump is nothing but the Clinton’s version of “a bull Loose in Obama’s China Store”.

The Donald is doing to Obama what Billy doesn’t have the nutz to do.

While entertaining, it doesn’t do a whole lot for the conservative movement.

I am still waiting for Trump to tell us who his favorite Supreme Court justice is. If that justice Scalia or Thomas, he'll have a lot more credibility. Then people will have to decide whether he intends to deliver or not.

However it goes, it's fun to have "The Donald" in the mix. He has been dauntless so far, and we need someone with Trump's unapologetic, unabashed moxie!

By George I think someone in the Trump circle must read FR? LOL Go Donald go! I am so glad that someone is speaking out about the curious issues surrounding Obama.No one goes to these lenghts unless they re hiding something. It is crazy to think that someone would spend in excrss of millions of dollars hiding something that in most states cost less than $30 to get a copy of...it just does not pass the smell test.

I think Donald is also bold enough to tell the people the truth they do not want to hear.That we are broke and we can not keep paying for entitlements that are not even mentioned in the Constitution.

Not only Ann Coulter - but even RED EYE ! Red Eye and Greg Gutfeld who mock and pan everything and are as irreverent as irreverence can be on TV, throw the birthers under the bus.

It is a testament to how powerful vocabulary to the Politically Correct is.
They can take one word like Truther or Birther, and excommunicate anyone associated therewith. Discussion is not even allowed. It is apostasy.
It is witch burning by association.

And the Becks, Coulters, Gutfelds et al dare not risk their ‘respectablility’ for fear of being PC tarred and feathered. Have any of these people brought up the fact that
The State Democratic Party of Hawaii would not certify in 2008 that Obama was constitutionally and legally eligible for the Office of President.” Nancy Pelosi had to certify this guy.

Why have a First Amendment if PC tolerance trumps it ?

Trump is a liberal. End of story. Doesn’t matter if he is for our national security, will protect the border, will fix the economy, will protect the constitution.

He is pro abortion and pro gay marriage. Game over.

A few short months ago, I would have laughed hysterically at the thought of voting for Trump. But today I, along with a majority of my Republican friends, are moving toward doing just that should he run. He is the only one with guts and is unafraid to speak the truth. And the fact that he is NOT a politician is one for the plus column.

Bill O’Reily asked him straight up his views on both. He clearly stated he was against abortion and against gay marraige.

Is FR ready to set up a Trump for President Club?

As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our BORDERS, our constitution and our national sovereignty.

Trump (and supporters) FAIL.

Trump reminds me of Rooty. Bugzapper thread? Hmmm.
