Trump: Iím pro-life now
Hot Air ^ | April 09, 2011 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 04/08/2011 8:16:56 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Via the Brody File, I feel obliged to post this now that he’s the tea-party frontrunner and the recipient of some surprisingly encouraging buzz from evangelical leaders. You know what the most fun part of having Trump in the race would be? The fact that he’s basically the bizarro Romney. They’re oddly alike in some ways. Each has been wildly successful in business and used it as a springboard to other prominent pursuits. Each is highly regarded for his managerial ability, to the extent that Trump had a whole television series built around it. And each is suspect for being excessively opportunistic, replete with conveniently timed awakenings on social issues that matter dearly to the Republican base. Stylistically, though, they couldn’t be more different, Romney buttoned-up and hesitant, Trump flamboyant and oozing roguish charm. Ironically, I think the latter works better for political pandering.

When a politician tells you what you want to hear and expects you to believe him, you feel insulted by both the lie and the insult to your intelligence. But when he tells you what you want to hear and seems not to care much whether you believe him or not, it’s a lesser offense. You know he’s pandering and he knows that you know he’s pandering, and, well, there’s some honesty in that.

Donald Trump

born June 14, 1946 in Queens, New York, NY (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)

Parents were
Frederick Christ Trump, born October 11, 1905 in Queens, NY, died June 1999 in Queens, NY
Mary Ann MacLeod, born May 10, 1912 in SCOTLAND, died August 7, 2000 in Queens, NY. Arrived in US October 5, 1935. Married January 1936. Naturalized as a US Citizen March 10, 1942.

Donald Trump is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Comrade Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.

And Obama was for everything that the press wanted to hear, until he was elected.

Just posted on another thread...

Using my super-secret Trump decoder ring, I can give you what he really said:

So, I had this most fabilous idea. These tea party people seem to have a lot of money and give it to people they like. They also give a lot of attention and I said, what the heck, the Trump needs more attention. I then had the greatest idea ever. A gold plated idea. I would say I am running for President and say I converted to all their positions so they would give me all their money and attention. I am epic win. Pay attention to me..

Now wait for him to suddenly convert(sic) from his liberal stances on gun control, government controlled health care, taxes, etc.

I don’t know what Trump is up to, but yesterday I caught him being interviewed on CNN. The ‘objective’ woman interviewer was actually arguing with him about the birth certificate.

Trump was relentless, and it was great. He didn’t back down, or give in politely.

The punchline, Ron Paul just announced he will take part in a Republican presidential debate. Time to dust off the old jokes, we are in for a crazy couple of years.

He needs to explore this and get a better grasp of it. It is a winner, if he can convince himself of it.

Fifty percent of American Catholic voters vote Democrat in each general election. As sick as that sounds, that means fifty percent vote Republican. Of coursw, if they could get a clue, a hundred percent, or so, would vote pro life - of course!

I know it's not popular around here, but I'm a Romney guy. However, I think Trump is the most electable. I talked to a good friend about politics today. She is very, very liberal - never voted Republican before. She said she would lean toward voting for Trump over Obama. Of course, this is anecdotal. But it shocked me. We hardly ever talk politics because we come from opposite sides. She thinks the birther issue is a bit off the deep end, as do I. But she's impressed with what he says on other issues, China, Libya, etc.

He announced on Alex Jones’ show, didn’t he?

Finally, the truth about Building 7 and the Pentagon missile will be revealed!

I’m more likely to believe Barrack Hussein Obama had a heartfelt conversion to Christianity than I am to believe Donald Trump became a genuine conservative.

LOL, Fraud Paul is more establishment than the rest of them. He has been living off DC since the late 70s, he just learned to play the game a little differently by pandering to a different audience.

When Kerry was running, I really wanted to get a bunch of bumper stickers that said “No Fetus Can Beatus” to slap on next to the “Catholics for Kerry” ones.

No, you're right... that's two teevee stars! And Ron Paul knows Alex Jones, who's seen Charlie Sheen's hernia! That's damn near three bona fide pop-culture behemoths!

Firepower, baby! Who says we're not serious about saving that last best hope for mankind??

Whoever said he's a bizarro version of Romney is SPOT ON.

Funny how freepers didn't believe Romney's pro-life conversion, yet, Trump has now seen the light. They're BOTH NE RINOs. And we know what happens with them. And wasn't he the reform party candidate a few years ago?

Trump is a chameleon, pimping conservatives. Nothing about him is trustworthy.

This is all coming from the HRC 2012 machine. The Donald is Hillary’s secret weapon.

You have to give tree-trunk ankles some credit on this. She identified the Tea Party’s soft spot and hit it with a perfectly executed shock & awe campaign. This “Donald & The BC” business is a masterstroke. The Clinton’s, scummy redneck trash that they are, don’t mess around. They didn’t have the goods on Buraq in 2008, but they do now. And they’re mainstreaming the issue. And they’re going to use the GOP primary to hammer it home.

Like a cunning mob boss, you can’t help but admire their moxy... even though you know they’re stone-cold evil.

It’s tradition that explains the Catholic vote. And the legacy of their Speaker Tip O’Neill too who talked about politics being “local,” meaning gravy trains from D.C.
