Posted on 05/16/2011 10:12:49 AM PDT by Hojczyk
Does this mean that Donald Trumps media tour was nothing more than a self-serving publicity stunt? Perish the thought:
Donald Trump announced Monday that he will not run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Despite months of speculation and a brief pop in the polls, Trump said in a statement that he was not ready to leave the private sector.
Nothing proved that more than his oxygen-sucking clown act in pandering to conspiracy theorists. Did anyone seriously think that Trump was serious about running for the nomination?
Hardest hit Charles Krauthammer?
LOL. what a joke this guy was
What did his so called investigators find in hawaii
Good news, if he sticks to his decision, which I sincerely hope he does.
He’s a crazy wild card.
We don’t need crazy wild cards.
We need a solid conservative we can all get behind to take our country back.
Sarah in?? when you put it in the context of so many crashing and burning.... you have a point???
I knew Trump wasn’t serious. Just as well. Personally, I don’t think he would have been the candidate the Republicans so desperately need.
I’m guessing that what Hojczyk is thinking is that as the losers drop by the wayside the pathway clears for the one winner out there.
No surprise here. I have said since the Trump phenomenon started that Trump was playing an angle, that he was in it for himself, and wasn’t serious as a candidate. The billionaire with a bad haircut is nothing but a shameless self promoter, and he got out of this little farce whatever he wanted and now he’s done. Good riddance. And to Huckaphony too. If we could just get rid of Romney and Gingrich... Prediction: Palin will bow out too. She’s making too much money with her newfound celebrity, and wont want to subject herself to a bruising primary campaign.
The real front Republican front runner isn’t on the radar yet.
They know better than to come out fast. They saw what happened to Palin.
The MSM saw she was capable and strong, they had to destroy her with the most inane garbage I’ve ever seen.
Palin is proof the MSM hates conservatives.
You haven't been paying attention to what she's been doing lately, have you? Money and celebrity mean nothing to her. She's out to bring Obama down hard. Everything she does must be considered in that context.
Well, maybe the Republican candidate is unknown right now. You never know.
At this point in the 1976 election cycle, Jimmy Carter was unknown to most Americans.
Ditto Bill Clinton, at this point in the run up to the 1992 campaign.
Divided fields without a clear front runner can produce a candidate who no one could have predicted would emerge.
If there is a Republican out there like this, I sure hope he/she has strong conservative credentials, and can clearly articulate the differences between conservative policies and Obamaism. And, can articulate why the conservative policies are superior to Obamanation type policies.
Being filmed going fishing with Kate Plus 8 is “bringing Obama down hard?” Please. She is such a lightweight she doesn’t even register on the scale.
The left scared him off...
1. I like the Donald.
2. I wanted him to run so I could see the Palinistas heads implode and explode, both at the same time.
Crumbs. I had already purchased the popcorn.
3. Shame on you, Donald. You robbed me of some hilarious fun. Could you reconsider?
“what a joke this guy...”
Who, Trump or Morrissey?
If she gets in she will not be a light weight...Sarah has beat a lot of odds..
That’s why the left is on 24/7 attack. Because she’s a lightweight? Weird. I don’t see them spending much time on Santorum, Paul, or Pawlenty? They are ignored because they pose zero threat.
I certainly hope he sticks to this decision.
I was worried he’d go independent and assure a Baraq win with a Clintonian plurality.
I guess you did not understand that each of the eight episodes had a clear Conservative political point. The "Kate Plus 8" crossover clearly demonstrated the differences between independent-minded Conservatives like the Palins (who can take care of themselves) and whiny, nasty liberals like Gosselin, who fell apart only hours after being taken out of her urban, government "protected" environment.
Sarah Palin is hardly a lightweight. If she was, then why is she still standing after all that has been hurled at her by the Rats, by the MSM, and by her own backstabbing party?
“3rd party disaster alert!!!”
Why do you make things up? You didn’t read the article as short as it was....
“He said: ‘Trump said in a statement that he was not ready to leave the private sector.’”
I think someone got to Trump. He looks worse now so I don’t think that “pretending” like he was going to run was going to help him, it only makes him look bad.
The only person that has really stood up for us has gone quiet, that scares me, something is up...
Before you start downing the Donald; know he did us a service by showing Obama can be beat.
In any case, we should all be alert to the 'rats use of phoney 3rd party (and fake tea party) straw men at the national and local levels to draw off opposition support in favor of weak 'rat candidates. They've been doing it since the time of TR and Wilson and it is an institutionalized strategy on their part.
He was right on the money with Trump. Said he was a clown just looking for some marketing time. Turns out he was right. Maybe he meant that Charles was only hardest hit because he lost someone to have some fun with. Anyone else get the reference?
Trump..like Rush would NEVER take the pay cut.
We do have to stay alert.
I hope he continues speaking his mind. He sure makes tidewaves.
I love it.
And Trump got fooled by the newly forged Birth Certificate.
Actually the question was rhetorical, I was being facetious.
Maybe now the libtards I work with will stop calling him “the Republican frontrunner.”
I wish I could have been here earlier, FRiend.
I could have warned about pack-animal-zombies looking for BRAINS.
If you say she isn't the Conservative One in all ways and will win 2012 by a landslide you are a left-wing intruder and will be punished.
