Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh: I really think Trump is running
Posted on 04/18/2011 1:10:42 PM PDT by RobinMasters
PALM BEACH, Fla. Will Donald Trump actually take the presidential plunge and run for the White House in 2012?
Radio giant Rush Limbaugh now believes the real-estate tycoon and television personality will.
"Up until Friday, I didn't think so. I thought there were other things behind this," Limbaugh said on his program today. "And I still don't know, still into wild-guess territory. But now if I had to put money behind the guess, I would say he's running. I really think he is. As of now I think in his mind, he's running. Now, with Trump, anything can happen between now and that day that he says he's going to announce. ... I think he's gonna do it."

Thanks Rush for the certainty of equivocation.
I listened to Rush today and he was NOT confident in his prediction. He was on FIRE though about Obama not giving a poop about what’s good for the country, just for his big special interests.
Is Trump a conservative?
Are they buddies I wonder? Does Rush have inside take on Trump?
What I heard was that Rush thinks Trump is going to run and that Rush is pleased he is running. Rush shies away from endorsements but you can tell he likes Trump
Not sure it makes a difference. Trump is already thoroughly exposed as the non conservative he is; in fact he’s looking - judging by past statements - like he’s a liberal, if anything. But he is NO Conservative. And I’m sure he’ll have second thoughts once the media exam of his empire starts to flush out things that don’t exactly flatter him. He’s a One Trick Pony: All Birth Certificate All The Time. Even if Trump manages to secure enough heat onto the issue to make a serious dent to Obama - denting Obama has ZERO to do with how credible he would be as a Commander In Chief.

They are practically next door neighbors .... must have bumped into each other some time. At the golf course, the rodeo or the opera.
For you to decide FRiend.
“Is Trump a conservative?”
Not only is he NOT a Conservative, he’s a Hillary Liberal.
If he runs as a Republican, or rather they allow him to run as a Republican he’ll be a major RINO.
More than likely will run as an Independent I believe, because I think he’s running as a spoiler for the purpose to Ross Perot the election for a Democrat be it Obama, or Hillary, whichever comes out on top of the fracas I see forthcoming.

Dude I would take Trump in a second over what we have NOW and all three Bush’s BTW add ,Mitt,Suckabee,too that list for a start.
Rush doesn’t know anything about Trump?
an article for your consideration as well.
He has consistently taken a good number of positions that are conservative -- eliminating the national debt, school choice, tight border security, pro-death penalty, increasing spending on the military and allowing citizens to opt out of social security.
He also supported Canadian style socialized health care, gun control laws and has been pro-abortion.
I doubt Rush and Trump are 'buddies' or that Limbaugh has any 'inside track' on Trump's plans. Trump appeared on Rush's program because it has a huge audience and Trump loves an audience. Donald Trump is playing 'conservative' these days and an appearance on Limbaugh's program was almost compulsory. However, Rush didn't endorse Trump, he simply said that he thought Trump was going to run, something many FReepers, including this one, agree with.
Trump is entertaining but I don't trust him. I think his 'conservative' awakening is a pose that he'll shed when it's convenient for him to do so. I suspect that Rush finds Trump interesting but would not endorse him - or any candidate. However, Rush often speaks well of Sarah Palin. That shows sound judgment (translation: he agrees with me). .
Isn’t it sweet that the media would flush out things about Trump, while after 2 1/2 years, they still haven’t done it to the poser in the WH?
The media in this country makes me sick.
Trump is not ideological pure! But if I had his money I could live with a little impurity here and there. Yap, $2200 million can overcome a lot of short comings lol. He is also the least PC of those running.
You may be right. But Id vote for him over Romney or the huckster.
Yes they often ride the same bull at the rodeo. LOL
I can’t answer that one for you, nor Rush as I quit listening to him back in the ‘90’s due my hearing got so bad.
I only have time to read, and participate here at FR, so I don’t read his transcripts etc., so I don’t know if he’s doing one of his pranks, or what.
If anybody knows Trump is a Liberal phony, or a would be RINO, or that he’s in the bag for Hillary it would be Rush, so he’s up to something me thinks, and it will come out when he’s ready.
Trump has said if he runs he will run as a Republican. He has backed off the flip comment that he would run as an independent if he did not win the Republican primary. If he wants to run I say let him. Let’s listen to what he and all the other GOP candidates have to say and then judge for ourselves who is the one to beat Barry. We have to win in 2012. Losing is just not an option.
Just so long it’s not at the gay rodeo...you know thee are such things
Just so long it’s not at the gay rodeo...you know there are such things
Mame Yes we can't lose as the entire country has been anted up on this roll of the dice!
No, he falls squarely in the RINO calls.
Which makes him different from any of the other GOP front runners how?
Good grief - after all the info that has come out some people just can’t admit they were snookered. None of the republican candidates are as liberal as trump and none of them sent money to Ted Kennedy and supported John Kerry. Trump was initially against a partial birth abortion ban until he got some info on it. He supports increased taxes on all Americans vis tariffs, taxing the rich’s net worth and universal health care. He’s a liberal.
If all you want is a macho candidate with a big fat mouth, blond hair and cajones you could always support Hillary. -):

That is it?? You ever do business in NYC at his level?? and we must beat Obama GOT IT?? There is NO second chance!!The future of the country depends on it BTW the Nice nice Quire boy approach WILL NOT WORK.
Trump is currently a lightning rod that will take some of the heat off Sarah. Let him break ground for a while. I’m sure Rush realizes it is good for content. If Trump can get conservative themes into the national conversation, good for him. That doesn’t mean I want him for POTUS.
Exactly, I am all for Trump running, I may not vote for him for the nomination, but I think he will bring some important issues to the campaign that would not otherwise be there, especially our trade relations with China.
The day that he interviewed Trump for the first time, he received many callers telling him that Trump was bad... not a conservative. Rush said that if Trump runs... he will have to answer a lot of questions about his past... and that there certainly were some major things in his past he would have to answer for. It is obvious that Rush understands that Trump cannot win the nomination due to his past and the number of things that will come back to haunt him.
Like most of us... he encourages Trump to say the things that he has been saying because it is forcing others to see the success in this tactic (contrast that with the rove/mclame style). Listen to Rush every day... you will understand exactly where his head is. Maybe you already do?
I think Trump will run if (1) he thinks he can win, or (2) he thinks he can gain power somehow by running.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Ok. You spelled “choir boy” as “quire boy”. That tells me all I need to know. Thanks and have a nice life.
Why is Rush suppressing the truth about Trump, his shocking and very recent liberal comments, which Mark Levin so clearly exposed? I love Rush, he’s #1 in my book.
But I know he’s aware of this and won’t comment on it. Why not??? Rush, what’s up?
Trump’s audio clips, played on the Mark Levin show:
Gray Busey just endorsed Trump http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2706815/posts That should be good enough for you. I give 70% odds Trump is running. If he gets lots of threats from Democrats to kill his businesses...then he doesn’t run. He is counting up the threats right now.
We must have been listening to different shows because I didn’t get anything ‘pleased’ about Trump running. In fact, I got a little bit of underlying amusement.
Mark Levin was right.
It seems that there are a lot of trolls coming out with the same Trump template.
He is not a conservative. He is a Hillary shill. He is a Rino.
He seems a lot better than abyone right now with the guts to say it like it is.
“Ok. You spelled choir boy as quire boy. That tells me all I need to know. Thanks and have a nice life.”
Hey take your grammar lady crap back to the DU.
Choir or quire
Choir, an ensemble of singers
Choir stall, seating for a choir in church
Choir (architecture), the area between the nave and sanctuary in a church or cathedral
One of the divisions of a Pipe organ
Angelic choir, an angelology term which refers to a specific grouping of angels within the angelic hierarchy
A West Gallery music group, consisting not only of singers, but also their accompanying village band (more often spelled quire
Levin was RIGHT!
“John Kerry isn’t a New York politician. Neither is Harry Reid. Still having map trouble, I see.
Levin was RIGHT!”
I see Trump must ONLY do business in NYC Right?? Careful, a wrong answer here can lead to you being FIRED!
Trouble is, he isn't any different than Romney. Oh, he has more money. Trump said so.
Why don't you name ONE conservative who has the donation record like Trumps. Just one.
Exactly right! Let him run in his own party against Obama.
“Mark Levin was right.”
So vote for Mark then!
Rush was chuckling and amused...also pleased that Trump was running. That’s what I heard.
“It seems that there are a lot of trolls coming out with the same Trump template.
He is not a conservative. He is a Hillary shill. He is a Rino.

No it is logic and our last chance to save the country!
“Wow, you’re so witty. And clueless. Nothing like integrity, though, to do honest business! Of course, he told Rush he’d reach across the aisle, so that should be as no surprise. How will you explain that one?”
You are willing to gamble, the future of the country on one of the Capons like Mitt or Suckabee?? Not me!

You were warned, now YOU are FIRED!! LOL what a should call you Willey Coyote!
Palin, West, Bachmann, Cain, DeMint... all rock solid conservatives. You have a problem with them?
