Trump To Megan McCain And Her Dad: I Like You
Newsmax ^ | 04/22/2011 | Dan Weil

Posted on 04/23/2011 7:58:37 AM PDT by PSYCHO-FREEP

Real estate mogul/reality TV star Donald Trump, who is considering a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, has fond feelings for the 2008 nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona. The Donald makes that clear in an interview with McCain’s daughter Meghan for The Daily Beast.

Meghan McCain “I like you and I like your father, I’ll tell you. And I like your mother. I like your whole family. Hey, look, I supported your family, right?” Trump says.

“To be honest with you, Bush made it so bad that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have beaten Obama. The world was crashing! If you remember six months before, your father was way up.”

Despite Trump’s strength in polls, including a Newsmax tally, Trump says those surveys understate his support.

“One of the pollsters actually said to me that my numbers would be better — and I’m leading in just about every poll — if people thought I was going to run, because a lot of people don’t think I’m going to run.”

Uhhhhh....what was that you said about Meghan's father being way up six months before the election?

I forget. How many months is it before the next election?

So what do we know about the Donald:
He is RIGHT about Rove.
He is WRONG about McCain
He is RIGHT about Obama running the country down.
He is WRONG about universal health care.
He is RIGHT about loving the free enterprise system.
He is WRONG that it means using government to do deals with big corporations.

So much to love. So much to fear. 2011-12 will be fun.

Awesome….Trump Supports Taking Private Property Of Citizens

“But the fact is, if you have a person living in an area that’s not even necessarily a good area, and government, whether it’s local or whatever, government wants to build a tremendous economic development, where a lot of people are going to be put to work and make area that’s not good into a good area, and move the person that’s living there into a better place — now, I know it might not be their choice — but move the person to a better place and yet create thousands upon thousands of jobs and beautification and lots of other things, I think it happens to be good.” - Donald Trump(Fox News, 7/19/05)

Well, all of Congress is out on a two week hiatus. Some in foreign countries, meddling in other's affairs at our expense.

And, the 'one in office' now plays golf, is on vacation, most of the time. As far as knowing anything about anything, the best he ever did was to staple posters on power poles.

Wonder what he did where the power was underground and there were no poles?

Am waiting to see who comes out of the debates on top before I choose which candidate I will campaign for - but - I do feel that GW Bush has a lot of blame for us now having Obama. As far as saying Trump is bad for liking the McCain family, Sarah Palin likes them too.

Not saying Trump is a conservative, but if he is seriously running & doing damage to Obama - I will certainly consider voting for him.

You know, once upon a time - I thought George Bush was a conservative, he said he was pro-life, along with a lot of Republicans in congress - but did they do anything to help end abortion?

No they did not. I’m tired of being fooled by that whole conservative game - say what I want to hear when you want my vote & then, when you get elected - completely ignore me then. Shame on them the first time, shame on me the second time.

I’m voting for whoever can defeat Obama.

We are in serious trouble. Our country may be past the point of fixing, but I am not yet 100% convinced.

If we elect someone because he isn’t Barack Obama or some other liberal piece of crap, it will only delay the day of reckoning by a very, very short period of time, historically speaking.

Would I vote for Trump before I vote for Obama? Sure. But that isn’t saying much, because I would vote for a rancid dog turd before I would vote for Obama.

A rancid dog turd would not actively be able to do anything to accelerate the damage and decline, as Obama is deliberately doing.

As long as the dog turd is out of your line of sight and far enough away from your sense of smell, it can’t hurt you, your family, your job or your country.

The same certainly cannot be said for Obama.

"...As far as saying Trump is bad for liking the McCain family, Sarah Palin likes them too..."

Sarah Palin will not be the first quality person to have made the mistake of loyalty to someone who gave them an opportunity. I wish it were not so, but if she denounced them or treatment of her by the McCain election team, many people including a lot of Freepers would excoriate her for that, and insist she is a whiner.

Of the two choices, I suppose I can accept that she remain relatively quiet about them, and when pushed, speak only positively about McCain and his wife. Not great, but at least it is a nod towards classy behavior. Hell, just saying that last sentence is enough to get me zotted these days.

Trump really does not want Obama to get reelected. Say what you will about him, but he is not that stupid to let the country go to hell based on his egocentric need to become President. He will drop out, rather than go 3rd party.

Did he specifically support Obamacare or just the theory of some sort of universal care?

I think in theory the idea of universal care sounds a whole lot better than it turns out to be in reality and lots of people don’t get that right away.

I’m so sick of this whole idea of the government’s obligation is to take from those who work to take care of those who won’t - all filtered through an unmanageable bureaucracy and a putrid soup of political correctness and paybacks. UGH! It’s nothing more than tyranny by our “public servants” (what a joke that phrase has become). What was wrong with all our private charities?

I guess I’d vote for whoever can beat Obama since this seems as bad as it can get. If it’s Trump then it’s Trump. But I’d rather have Sarah.

I have said in the past that I am tired of voting for “the lesser of two evils”. It seems that it gets worse with each passing election, the choices are terrible.

I think the 2012 election will be different than any other in our history, I don’t think we can necessarily rely on what has happened in the past to determine who is most likely to win this next time around. This is a situation that has reached emergency proportions. Our house is on fire & priority #1 is putting out the fire & then we can start working on remodeling it - but if we don’t get rid of Obama the house will burn to the ground.

If it turns out that Trump is in a position to put the fire out - he has my vote. Same goes for the other candidates - I think it’s a bit too early to tell who is going to be “the one”.

I do know that I pray daily for GOD to send us a leader that can lead our country out of the wilderness. I’m not going to discount that our next leader might be someone completely out of the box - maybe that’s what it’s going to take. I know that the career politicians have certainly had their chance to change things & they haven’t done squat.

Yes, like 2008, it is starting to get nasty around here again. The Flying Monkeys are ready to pounce on anyone saying anything even remotely negative about Palin.

After all they all just Politicians and Politicians play both sides to some extent to get as many votes as possible. And most of all, most of them are careful to chose their words so not to offend the the Undecided or Independent voters.

“I do feel that GW Bush has a lot of blame for us now having Obama.”

I agree 100% with Trump.
Bush was a big-spending open-borders RINO. He was unable to effectively advocate or defend his policies. By the end he stopped even trying.

There will be an attempt by the GOP establishment to rehabilitate Bush. We must resist this and move on.

But that’s NOT what Trump is saying. Trump is saying he was too cowboy & went to Iraq for his own selfish reasons etc. Trump is NOT calling Bush a RINO big spender.

Agreeing with trump on that is like agreeing with bummer that we need “comprehensive immigration reform” because you think the current immigration system is too lax & lets too many illegals in.

That probably won't happen with the current ignorance of the American Electorate. Huckabee and Romney are clear examples of that fact.

On top of that the very truth that Obama was elected based on his pathetic record and history, speaks volumes that this problem has not gone away and has probably become worse.

I actively supported Perot, wrote letters on his behalf and donated money when he ran. I supported him for three major reasons:

First, his involvement with the POW movement in Vietnam, a subject near and dear to my heart.

Second, his selection of Admiral John Stockdale as his running mate. Admiral Stockdale was, for me, a “broken glass” candidate if there ever was one. A brilliant, principled and honorable man, he was one of my heroes. it was a life goal of mine to meet him and shake his hand, sadly unrealized.

Third, Perot’s apparent acumen as a capitalist and businessman, able to grow a company to highly successful levels and provide jobs for hundreds or thousands of people.

In retrospect, it was the worst political decision I ever made. I discounted the political dynamic, and I do believe regardless of what many said, that his candidacy opened the door to eight hideous years of the grifter Clintons. I regret it to this day.

In my opinion, Trump is Perot without the dogged values of Perot, the support of the military and a man of quality and honor as his running mate. The result will be exactly the same, though the mechanism may be different. Here is how it will happen:

Whether Trump is the primary candidate or a third party candidate, the media, newspapers, television, magazines etc. will be filled with non-hostile puff pieces on Trump. He will get plenty of face time, a lot of it good. It will be very even-handed coverage, if not positive.

If he does not run as a third party candidate outright, the preliminary campaign will be a long, bloody, drawn out internecine battle. The media will make Trump the favorite, especially if Palin or another conservative is the candidate, in order to draw out the battle and drain resources as much as is possible, and cripple one or both candidates to the degree they will be unable to mount a viable campaign against a candidate with a billion or more dollars in his war chest.

Like Obama will have.

Once the general election begins, one of two things will happen: If Trump is the GOP nominee, he will be hammered un-mercilessly from the beginning, and he will fail, because his past in so many ways will be highlighted, explored, delved into, and all of the many foibles, flaws and contradictions (of which there are many, such as the money donated to Rahm Emanuel and his support of government run healthcare in the past) will be brought to light, discussed endlessly by talking heads to the exclusion of anything from the Obama campaign. He is a flawed and ruined candidate from day one, no matter his conservative-sounding statements in the last couple of months.

Obama wins.

But, if Trump is a third party candidate, the kid gloves treatment will continue unabated until election day 2012. Trump will be presented as a very viable candidate for conservatives, but the attraction towards the precious “undecided”, “independent” or “swing” voters will be gently downplayed. This manipulation of the electorate will be carried out while the GOP candidate is pounded for association with the Tea Party values, cutting Medicare and Social Security for the elderly, and so on.

The vote will be split as EVENLY as is possible, and Obama wins.

Don’t doubt me on this, as Rush Limbaugh would say.

I knew that Perot would give us Clinton. The real direction this country took since then, can be directly attached to the damage Perot did permanently to all of us. And he did it for the sole reason to ruin George H.W. Bush, to satisfy his personal vendetta against him.

Why do you keep defending Trump?

Based on his history and public record, anything is possible with this charlatan.

Unless you are dumb enough to believe his political epiphany at CPAC2011, just two months ago. His political positions are no different than Giuliani and Romney. He's given more donations to Dems than Pubs, including to pro-abortion and pro-gun control finks like Shumer and Weiner, along with national candidates like Crist and Reid. He's shifted from Republican, to Democrat, to Refomer and then back to Republican. He supported Kerry over Bush in 2004 and his first choice in 2008 was Hillary Clinton. He called Bush43 "evil" and thought Obama could be a "great" president.

Do you trust Trump at all? Does anyone really trust Trump?

Conservatives can do better.

That’s what I meant - if you’re not a real conservative and you hear “universal health care” and you think oh great - no one goes without. And I do believe that is what they think - with their pie in the sky view of the world.

But the reality is that in practice we inevitably end up with rationing and death panels as we’ve seen in Europe and England. The bottom line I see is government cannot make life fair.

Those are your words, not mine. Nice diversion tactic, but it won't work. I asked you, why do you keep defending Trump? An honest straight forward question. Since it upsets you, leave the faithful criticism and hardball political rhetoric to me. Okay?

Trump is one of America's premier egotists and narcissists. Right up there with Obama. As potus, Trump has told us how he would govern. Trump would be a liberal on domestic policy and pushing an imperialistic foreign policy. Trump is Giuliani and Romney on steroids --- A Rockefeller Republican gone wild! Anything is possible with Trump. Inclduing a third party run, if he should get pissed at the GOP for not nominating him.

STOP defending this cretin.

I am not upset, and I am not defending Trump like you think. You are confusing analytical extrapolation with advocation. I have complimented some of the things that Trump has been doing for us and giving him credit were it is due. He has done our cause a great service in several very important areas.

But my overall synopsis is that Trump has no intention of running with this all the way. Trump is Trump. He cannot and will not change his basic character. He may have changed his outlook of Abortion, etc, but he is still the incurable Populist that he has most always been and shares no real Political ideal with Conservatives.

He has no intention of taking on the Presidency. He is merely out to take Obama down any way he can and I am all for it. Our real candidate will step up after he paves the way. That is what I believe.

That raises the question if any conservative can win with the relentless pounding of the Obama loving media? We already know they’ll turn on their favorite RINO to help out the black communist.

Thanks for clarifying Aria, and if I misunderstood then “my bad.”

In my opinion, Trump falls outside of what you and I believe on this. His inclination is towards big government and entrenched big business getting in bed together to solve problems. That is not a small government free market Constitutional inclination in my estimation.

Thus my lack of support for Trump, though I am thoroughly enjoying his candidacy to this point and I admire his unabashed love of America.
