Donald Trump Responds To David Plouffe: I’m Obama’s ‘Worst Nightmare’ (video link)
mediaite.com ^ | 4/11/2011 | Matt Schneider

Posted on 04/11/2011 9:55:58 AM PDT by SonOfDarkSkies

White House Senior Advisor David Plouffe yesterday suggested that Donald Trump is a “sideshow” with “zero chance” of being elected President. Plouffe likely expected that there was “zero chance” Trump would hear such remarks and not be eager to retaliate, which of course he did

Trump’s response on Fox & Friends this morning:

“Obviously I hit a nerve because they’re fighting me I don’t hear them talking about Mr. Pawlenty or anybody else. They’re talking only about Trump. And I can tell you, I’m their worst nightmare. I am not the person that they want to run against. And they know it and I know it.”
Even more enjoyable than hearing a potential presidential candidate refer to themselves by their own last name, is how seamlessly Trump transitions from suggesting Obama is doing a “terrible job” to discussing how great Celebrity Apprentice was last night and how shocked he is that Gary Busey survived another week. And another week of the Trump “sideshow” begins.

The tape is worth watching because Trump absolutely batters Obama...saying the only deal Obama has ever done was one with Tony Rezko.

I’m not sure Trump is even a Republican, but it is looking like he may be the best guy to take down Obama.

Matt Schneider needs to wipe his nose; there's still some brown stuff on there. Maybe his divine Lord, Master Obama, will make him "media czar" or something for his devoted service.

"Plouffe likely expected"... sure he did, lickspittle.

I know this might be beside the point, but.....

If this had been SP that was attacked by the stain's spokespeople, and had she defended herself against these personal and degrading attacks, the anti-SP folks on FR and elsewhere would have gone ballistic!

Screams of "she's so lame" and "it's always about her" and "she needs to get a thicker skin" and "she needs to grow up" and "with her, it's always me, me, me" and the like would have echoed from the rooftops.

But when Trump does it, it becomes a valiant and well respected self defense.

What's the diff???

I have always been a Trump fan because of his bravado. This is precisely why he was so successful in business.

NY Real Estate is about as tough a business as there is, and he dominated it. I have read his “Art of the Deal” books. He is very bold.

He’s not my first choice for POTUS, but I love the fact that he is just telling it like it is about Obama. He’s not being a politician at all.

Great fun!

Unknown columnists from small town papers (I posted one from Enid OK this morning) are getting national exposure writing about The Donald/Obama bout...and this is just the beginning.

You can only imagine how worried the WH is.

Trump loves the publicity (all publicity is good publicity) but it is killing Obama. And to make matters worse, there is nothing they can do to stop it. Even if Obama were to release his birth certificate, Trump would move on to the matter of his sealed transcripts or his drilling embargo or his Pakistan visit in college.

To borrow from Charlie Sheen..."winning!" The reference to Tony Rezko made my day. Trump must be driving Obama absolutely (more) insane. LOL!

Even more enjoyable than hearing a potential presidential candidate refer to themselves by their own last name, is how seamlessly Trump transitions from suggesting Obama is doing a “terrible job” to discussing how great Celebrity Apprentice was last night and how shocked he is that Gary Busey survived another week. And another week of the Trump “sideshow” begins.

What a perfectly insightful paragraph. The Trump sideshow is more than worth the price of admission. Politics hasn't been this much fun in quite awhile. I hope he keeps them all guessing for a long time to come and just launches a few new jabs at the obamessiah every week. It's awesome.

The diff is that Trump dared go where NO republican or even talk radio went. He pretty much called obama a fraud and asked to see his papers. That’s big. It takes guts to take on the prez with such a direct challenge. He’s my hero for sure.

I can think of two reasons: 1) He’s a man, 2) He came out of left field (literally). I think the Left is still in shock by Trump’s attacks against Obama and hasn’t found

Trump is doing a service for the country. He’s shaking the ground on which Obama is walking. He is speaking the truth that we’ve known about since the beginning of this and he’s enjoying himself immensely. That’s the fun part for me. He’s poking ‘em with a stick and laughing.

You're exactly right, as the Rezko comment proves. It's wonderful...the perfect storm. Obama is being Trump'd and America is the winner.

I bet Mr. Trump is calling in a film crew to head all over the planet to do a lifelong documentary of Obama.

Usually a person like a President usually gets a documentary by now, why hasn’t Obama?

Are people afraid of what may turn up?

“with a meat axe or scalpel” is the historic way to describe budget cuts. But David and every other leftist used the phrase “MACHETE or scalpel”.

On one panel a leftis started to say “meat axe” and then caught herself mid sylable, paused, looked at the other leftists and said “MACHETE”. Clearly this was the talking point.

Why MACHETE? I suggest that the left is intentionally trying to appeal to racism to get support for their side. The intend that associating the budget cutters with a MACHETE will associate budget cutters with those wild, uneducated Mexicans. It was a clear play to racism.

How many in MediaWatch, MediaMatters, etc will notice?

Not only that but Trump called for the impeachment of President Bush, so they can’t even dismiss him as a partisan hack.

The WH response to this is pretty inept if you ask me. Dismissing a billionaire like Trump is poking at the hornet’s nest if you ask me.

The alternative here that people need to be aware of is that he may in fact have the long forum waiting to throw out there when the time is right.

We should be prepared for the idea of a rope-a-dope on this birth certificate deal. Think about it. If he really does have his long forum, why would he show his birth certificate now? The press is letting him get away with it? Anyone who questions Obama’s legitimacy up until now has been discredited as a kook or a raciest or both by the press. Right now, it’s a really easy way to have the press discredit your opponents for you. Why wouldn’t you hang on to it until the point to which it’s an issue that begins to hurt and then pull out the birth certificate? Then think of how sympathetic he’ll look to the general electorate. I’m just saying it’s something people need to think about.

This campaign of Trump's reminds me of when a comedian tries out a new shtick and it catches fire. Trumps attacks on Obama have caught fire...they are now a force of nature! He couldn't stop if he wanted to.

I think it may even end with him bringing down the president.

I'm not either, but he may be the only one who can take down Bozo, cause doesn't matter what the MSM says, Donald will get his word out regardless!

He is fearless of the RAT party. He won't back off! He won't be stopped by articles of the kind they put out about Palin. Like it or not, he may be our only hope to stop this marxist slide for America!

******

Who is this Obama guy Plouffe anyway? I had never heard of him until this weekend.

He is supposed to be a top adviser to Obama, but he is doing more harm to Obama by criticizing Trump than by simply keeping quiet.

Pelosi next Trump attacker? If Obama sends a well-known preson like Pelosi to attack Trump, then we will suddenly have something exciting where people will sit up and take notice. But sending unknown key adviser Plouffe to attack Trump on the talk show circuit was a mistake on Obama's part, because Plouffe turned into Poof!

Of course, if Pelosi starts attacking Trump, then she opens herself up to critical questions about how she could sign a Hawaii presidential application form where she verified that Obama was Constitutionally eligible to run for president, even though Pelosi could determine such eligiblilty ONLY if she had first examined Obama's long form birth certificate.

So, in my opinion, if Obama next sends Pelosi to attack Trump, Trump will embarrass and give Pelosi a very difficult time with his response to her attack.

"Okay...once we get your long form, how 'bout releasing your college transcripts and your SAT scores?"

IMO Obama is doomed if Trump keeps it up.


If Obama makes his long forum available and everything is kosher, he becomes so sympathetic to the general populace that nobody is going to listen to "Okay, then where are your college transcripts, where are your SAT scores?" People will just see it as people harassing the President because they don't like him. And in fact I would rather have his transcripts... I think that's where the real nuggets of proof may exist about this guy and his hatred of capitalism.

I think it's likely the President was born in Hawaii. What would have been his mother's motivation for not telling the truth about that? Had he been born in Kenya, let's say, he still would have been a US citizen because his mother was a citizen. The only advantage of being a natural born citizen is that you can become President some day... unless you are arguing that Obama's a true Manchurian Candidate.

Thanks for posting this.

Trump = The “Anti-Soros”

This is just glorious!!!

Why not Trump for prez? He sure beats any of the other alternatives. He’s the ultimate outsider, the tea-party guy extraodinaire. And I’d bet that with him as prez, our economy would sky-rocket and our taxes would plummet. And as a bonus, government might get smaller and more efficient. What more could you want? Besides, he’s been the topic of the tabloids for so many years, there are probably no unknown unknowns in his closet. Even if there were, he doesn’t care. :)

As Jack Cashill said, we know more about George Washington's childhood than we know about the entirety of Obama's life.

This guy is hiding everything because there's a reason.

Furthermore, as a good deal maker, Trump isn't going to take risks like he is taking without already having good intelligence on Obama. He has said as much.

No way. In Chicago, you are only allowed to rat on the guys who have already been busted. So, he can drop a dime on Blagojevich, but not Obama. Otherwise, he jeopardizes his retirement plan when he gets out.

My thought on the Birth Certificate is that Trump is using it to get attention. People are not ready to listen to the "issues' two years before an election.

Once he gets everyone's attention & the serious campaigning gets underway, then he will get into the real "issues"!

He's one smart cookie! I'm sure he can outsmart the "team" that put Bozo's (fake) public persona out there in 2008!
