Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president Thursday, saying he's impressed by the Republican candidate's debate prowess and believes he could easily beat President Obama in November. 

"Mitt is tough. He's smart. He's sharp. He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love," Trump said in Las Vegas, telling the candidate to "go out and get 'em." 

The real estate mogul, speaking briefly with reporters before the announcement, said that even though he "never knew" Romney before the race began, he's come to know him in recent months. 

"His general attitude and the last two debates were very impressive," Trump said. 

He also cited Romney's position on China, calling the former Massachusetts governor

One Rockefeller Republican endorsing another.

Is the GOP REALLY going to nominate a Massachusetts liberal? Still can’t believe it.

What? FREEPERS were cheering that he was going to endorse Newt and calling him a great conservative. I wonder if the FREEPERS will change their tone now. See I can’t stand Trump. Never could and knew he was a fraud. Had a lot of blast for saying such things but as usual I am right. Eggs are available.....

Back when combover boy was leading all the birthers around by the nose, I told ya again and again and again that he was no conservative, but a crony capitalist who would sell out conservatism in a "New York Minute".

Told ya so, birthers.

Wonder what kind of a deal "the Donald" made with "the Mitten"...you can bet he didn't do it for the "good of the country" or is he setting him up later for a 'YOU'RE FIRED'

He could endorse Obama before it’s through. He was going to endorse Gingrich a few days ago, then Romney outbid him. Of course, he could change his mind next week.

I feel the same about Trump. But when he was floating the idea of running for president, I had an exchange with relatives who live in Nevada. They are not political, but they brought up the subject and said they and their friends were excited about the prospect of Trump running. I laughed. Just an anecdote, but maybe they are reflective of the sway of a Trump endorsement in Nevada.

Combover boy’s endorsing Newt would be one thing that could cause me to switch to Santorum instead. Fortunately his endorsing Mitt causes no conflict for me whatever.

Please, Trump was never a Rockefeller Republican, or any other kind of Republican. He probably isn’t even a Democrat. His political beliefs are whatever suits him on a particular day. He endorse Obama in 2008.

Trump has laid his cards on the table. He’s a RINO. At least there is no more guesswork to what the Trump really is now. We know he’s a sellout to conservatism and a shyster. We’ve always known it but now it is readily apparent.

I heard the beginning, Trump endorsed and turned it over to Romney. To Trump’s credit he did not grandstand, at least at the start.

In hindsight this isn’t surprising bc Romney emphasizes making China play by the rules and that is Trump’s main theme.

He is not a RINO. He was registered as a Democrat a few years ago, and he isn’t registered as a Republican now. Not a RINO.

Folks, you don't know how much Trump's endorsement helps Newt. It's like a gift from heaven.

Newt is a conservative populist.....he will play off the two "rich, out-of-touch guys" like a Stradivarius.

They become the 1% and he becomes the 99%. I like those odds.

Watch the Newtster go to town on Romney/Trump/Millionaires/Eastern/Elite/Establishment/Casino/Bad Hair.

Remember, my encouraging words and the skies are not cloudy all day!

All this endorsement proves is that Romney is the liberal we all think he is. The Donald has always endorsed liberals.

These types with many sophisticated investments, stock interests, etc. will nearly always support the person they believe will win so that they can get the sweet deals and laws they need to make more money. If it later becomes clear that Obama will win then he will endorse him. These were the ones Ayn Rand raged against the most, even more than the basic moochers as I recall from Atlas Shrugged. They don’t care about philosophy or ideology. They just care about the best route to getting to do what they want to do and we now live in an America where that is done by special favors more than according to what is best for the country. Instead of hope and change, it is faux and shame.

"The Donald is nuts."

The problem with Donald has always been that he doesn't have a solid set of core values. He understands business, and what's good for business. He has correctly articulated energy and trade policies as two critical components of an economic plan.

But how conservative he is with regard to fiscal policy is unknown and probably doubtful given his past flirtations with the Clintons.

But worse, Donald doesn't have conservative social values. He builds casinos.

Thus, all of the social negatives of Romney, the false religion, the past support of abortion and gay special rights, the gun control, etc doesn't bother Donald.

And apparently Romney's fiscal policy negatives Obamacare, tax increases, etc don't bother him either.

Does anyone think they are not on the same page.

Protect Goldman Sachs. He knows Newt would change the way things are.

Trump is a moderate. He is not conservative. He supported Obama, didn't he?

This was all about show and one man's ego.
