If it weren’t for Donald Trump - Osama bin Laden will still be alive.

I haven’t seen any anti-Trump vitriol based on damage to Obama. If you actually believe that, then it’s worse than I imagined ...

It ain’t just another leak. I think maybe the bottom of the bucket done cracked clean in two. Y’all might need a bigger bucket.

All I can say is. Some folks are just too stupid for words.

When a nasty pop culture a-hole and despicable creature like Trump can gain traction on this conservative forum, I'd say we all better watch our backs.

While I cant prove it I think that is complete BS by NBC. They had a new contract with him, that is why they planned to continue the show. They loved all the free publicity he was creating.

Thank God. The joke is over.

Is it?

Who knows what Trump's motivation was. We can only speculate. Yet, whether a joke or not, Trump at least went out and sounded like a candidate, unafraid to criticize and unafraid of political correctness. Compare this to the leading "milk toast" RINO's whom are left. But, it's still early and we've yet to find out all the candidates.

However, if Gov. Palin stays away as the Media is hoping, Conservatives will likely be unrepresented yet again in another Presidential election. If it's to be another 1996 re-do, been there, done that.

The odd thing with Trump's announcement is the coincidence of the timing, shortly after Huckabee made his announcement. Hmmm.....

......But I am sure he will keep investigating Obamas past and that wasn't just all B.S.....Right? Right?

Hahaha, where is the information Trump's investigators were "amazed" by and "couldn't believe they were finding"??

Trump's a clown. He was just using the birther stuff to get attention for himself. He never had squat. I do kinda feel sad for the people that actually bought into his charade.

Yup. Was just going to reply to your post 90, see my post #84

If Trump doesn't pursue the clearly bogus LFBC, then it's more likely he was working in conjunction with Barry.

He did leave some interesting "tid bits" that may hint which way he'll go on that score.

The next few weeks and months should be telling in that regard.

No more than of a stunt or fraud than any of the others. It was an honest statement. He took the Republicans to school on how to beat Obama. I hope at least one of them was paying attention.

I agree.

So why do you think Obama went and released the long form? You think it had NOTHING to do with Trump. You can’t possibly be that stupid.

Even the White House admitted that Trump had damaged Obama so much so that they were compelled to release the long form.

Then - with Obama’s poll numbers slipping lower and lower - you think it’s a COINCIDENCE that Obama has OBL taken out. And again that it had nothing to do with the damage Trump had caused your boy Barack? Even the most liberal of journalists admitted Bammie did this to bounce back in the polls.

I know it must piss you off to have Obama be made a fool of. But for a birther like Trump to do it?

Wow. No wonder you are angry.

No doubt about that.

Do you have a link to the "fact" that they had a new contract in place with him a month ago?

Yes he was a joke. I mean great so the President released his birth certificate and now people ate it up (I know we didn’t but majority of Americans did). So really what did he accomplish? We have Cain who has zero experience but he is sooooooooo conservative that I could vote for him. I love his pro-life message which is my number one issue so I would be thrilled to vote for him.

Welcome to the thread. You have some reading to do. And some learning evidently. You need to educate yourself on what Trump did to Obama. And what Obama’s response was.

You got that right!

If it's another 1996 OR 2008 re-do, they can count my write-in (at this point) for Bachmann.

I won't sit out the vote, too many other issues on the local ballot that must be addressed. But I will not vote for another McCain. The GOP can take that to the bank.

Not a peep out of him on the bc or the school records. Smells like he’s had a few contracts being questioned or something to take him off the trail.

Silly, juvenile name calling. If Ronald Reagan were alive today, the great man wouldn't piss on either of you if you were on fire.

Trump proved one thing—going directly at Obama (hard) works. Obama is vunerable on the issues, and if the GOP would go after Obama on the issues they will win.

That's it in a nutshell. Now will any Repugs learn?

From where I'm sitting...because Barry is "bad for business." Basically, self interest.

Sorry, but you got suckered by the Donald in the first place. And your logic here is just as flawed as your logic in backing him. The raid to get Obama didn't just spring up because of Trump. It had been in the planning and rehersal stages for some time.

Quit being such a pouty puss about having been so wrong about the Donald.

Then explain why you can’t admit that Trump did harm Obama.

I know you anti-birthers hate Trump. Fine. So what? Who doesn’t? But why not admit he is a useful idiot that forced Obama to release the long form?

You can’t even do that. Much less see that he ordered the hit on OBL as a diversion to the damage Trump did.

That only leaves one explanation: You anti-birthers hate anyone and anything that makes your boy Barack look bad.

We all know Barry is bad for business, but I think it is pretty disingenuous for people to want Trump to go after Barry, but yet continue to support candidates who have yet to go after Barry. Hypocrisy has killed our nation and it is still alive and well. Interesting times, but very scary.

It had been in the planning and rehersal stages for some time.

____________________________________________

That’s the first correct thing you’ve stumbled on all day.

Of course it was in the planning stages for some time. Planned for just the time when Obama needed a bump in the polls. Most experts thought this would happen closer to election time. But - thanks to the Donald - Obama HAD to take Osama out when he did.

But it WAS rather nice of Obama to wait till after the Royal Wedding to do this hit job, don’t you think?

I’m sorry you can’t see the obvious. But this was completely political.

Go suck eggs, Trumpette. You were dumb enough to fall for Trump in the first place, don't try to re-inflate your ego by cutting down those with more sense than you have.

Obama had already neutered the BC issue by releasing it. He didn't need to kill bin Laden to marginalize Trump, Trump did a bang-up job doing that on his own.

That's right. Since they determined his probably being there ~August 2010.

I'm thankful they planned.

Planning, thinking, planning for 6+ months. Barry even slept on it up until he decided it was time to go the very same week his releases his bogus LFBC.

"I don’t give a care how long ANYONE has been a FReeper. If they are an anti-birther, they are an Obama-bot stooge as far as I’m concerned."

Bullcrap. Just because a person does not buy into every whackjob conspiracy theory coming down the pike does not make him an Obama support. In fact, the more conservative person would tend to hold back until some concrete evidence is produced before going off the deep end. We have no Obama supporters on FR! Knock off the attacks on our FReepers!!
