Skip to comments.Trumpís Paper Tiger Rebellion Against Conservatives
Posted on 02/04/2012 9:54:05 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
In the spring of 2011, Donald Trump threatened to start a revolution within the Republican Party, appealing to the naive among Tea Partiers by promising to take on President Obama as no one else could. All too many members of the conservative media, including even some highly reputable ones, took his nonsense seriously.

Seems like both sides want to blow the place up, though.
Trump COULD have had conservatives and Tea Party back him.
Now, he only has the dog abusers, and Mormons in lockstep
with Bishop Romney.
I said from the start to watch out, that Trump is not a conservative. I also said, for a while, that at least he was doing a good job bringing the birth issue to people’s attention. But I changed my mind about that, too.
Trump is a crony capitalist, who has made his money on real estate and casinos with the help of crony politicians.
He has mostly donated to Democrats, and a few RINO Republicans with influence.
Why did he raise the birther issue? For two reasons. The lesser one is that he could prepare himself as a possible “conservative” third party candidate, to split the Republican vote for Obama.
The greater one was that the campaign season was about to begin again in earnest (not that Obama ever stopped, from the day of his Inauguration). Obie needed some sort of excuse to bring out a BC at last, and lay the issue to rest.
But why would he do so after refusing to do so for three years? How to account for the change? The Donald gave him that excuse. And it was carefully timed, so that at the height of The Donald’s rants, he could produce the new long-form COLB on the WH website, and then immediately change the subject with the bin Ladin raid. That had been in the work for months, and was carefully timed. He would have saved it for an October surprise, but decided he really needed to put the birther issue to bed, and couldn’t afford to wait.
Never mind that the new COLB is an obvious forgery, and that no one has seen the original copy. The whole show was enough too enable the media to pretty much change the subject. Although it will not go away among those who bother to investigate for themselves and go around the media boycott of real news.
I don’t absolutely KNOW this, of course. But how else to explain what happened? How else to explain why liberal talking heads invited Trump to come on their shows and talk about it? How else to explain that Trump was never really demonized by the DNC or the media for what he did? They can pretend to laugh at him, but they don’t hate him as they would if he had really meant it.
Whenever I see pictures of Trump all I can think about is the red headed terror he must have been as a little boy!
The guy is a shyster.
The guy is a shyster.
***...warning that Romneys nomination is the only result which will guarantee his loyalty to the Republican Party.***
That has to be the most arrogant part of this whole charade. It shows his utter lack of character and a pathetic belief in his political capital. He has a lot of money but no judgement. What a tyrant!!
Trump can kiss my rump.
Very interesting. I also noticed that Trump would say the same thing over and over and over no matter how many shows he was on. Nothing was ever new. China is ripping us off, Opec is ripping us off, Obama is not a good cheerleader for our country. He really thought he would be. The roads in China are great. The roads here are not. Does that about sum it up? It was always the same thing.
Good old Donald Gump: Mitt and I are like a box of chocolates, you never know what yur gonna get.
Well, we do know. One is a chump and the other a liar. the only reason Gump did this is because he wants a position in bishop romneys admin. It’s business, not personal!
Mr Trump, with all your money I would think you could get a better toupee. Please give the one you’re wearing back to the squirrel you took it from.
Romney is tagged with a birther.
A Fox reporter asked Newt what he thought of the Romney endorsement. Newt said “Nothing. He is a great manipulator of the media to get attention.” The people on Fox smiled this morning and said he is taking it well. Do they get that Newt just slammed Trump, Romney and the media all in one statement? LOL!
I really thought Trump could do good things...but picking Romney says he's not a consertvative.
I have only seen his show once. Not sure when it starts. I know Mark Levin says he is a moderate. He is also a huge opportunist.
Just like Jeffery Imelt on steroids.
The man is shameless
I got no problem with the guys business prowess, but dont try to tell me that your a conservative.
Trump. Soros, Imelt, Buffet, Gates, Jobs are not conservatives.
That is the Essence of Trump. The man has no core other than "all trump all the time"
Does Trump’s opinion matter much? Since no one would even show up to his debate, I don’t think so.
Trump has only been a “Republican” for a year or two and is already making demands?
Trump was never and is not a conservative
CFP is a shill for Santorium.
He’s a legitimate Catholic and they want him to win.
So like Newt they are acting out.
I no longer subscribe to CFP. They are NOT honest in their articles. They USED to be honest.
The REALITY is that Mitt WILL be the nominee.
Your choice is Mitt or Obama.
It’s that simple.
Sour grapes does not become you.
Trup WORKED for his money.
Trump didn’t marry it or inherit it.
That is hardly “crony captialism”.
Is trump WRONG?
Is Trump WRONG?
In case you didn’t know ... TRUMP isn’t running.
You can’t “dump” a canidate that is not running.
I’d prefer to vote for a Gingrich / Palin ticket on a new third party Tea Party, which Gingrich would have the same once in a lifetime sort of opportunity to create right now, that Palin would have had to topple everything wrong about the GOP, had she not backed out.
I do not accept your presumption, that the reprehensible nastiness whose parents named “Mitt” is inevitable.
We need to start thinking outside the Rino pond.
SPLIT the vote and ensure Obama gets in there.
Mitt will be the nominee. just watch.
Trump is a product of a rich Pappy.
Trump has Lost more money than I will ever make.
He just aint that cool.
I don’t personally like him but you arew wrong that he didn’t WORK for it. Even if Dad helped him, Trump built his own empire. He was bankrupt and came back. I give a person credit for that. I am sorry you do not.
In my view, it will be the nasty scourge on American politics named Willard, who will be splitting the vote.
He should resign now.
Just practicing, because if you thought Bush caught a lot of cr@p, just you wait.
The guy is a cheater and a liar and a shameless huckster, and he just aint that sharp as a businessman
I will not adore him.
I don’t adore him either.
“The guy is a cheater and a liar and a shameless huckster, and he just aint that sharp as a businessman.”
And what evidence do you present for this?
Sour grapes because he didn’t endorse YOUR candidate, so NAME CALLING is the best you can do?
Face it, you’re a sad case of sour grapes.
He’s so slick, that he manages to steal peoples property via eminent domain for parking lots for his casinos and than he loses his ass on those casinos.
No.. I dont like him and I don’t respect him.
I am sure he will be on the VIEW to tell us his side of the story.
But I say Dump Trump!
Yeah, thats it LoL! I’m sour grapes LOL!
Trump isn’t running!
How do you “dump” Trump when he is not “running” as a nominee?
This forum is sadly transforming into a emotinally driven LIBERAL forum.
Please illustrate for us where Romney stands on the issues.
Regulation in general?
Spending (including entitlement and discretionary)?
Taxpayer funded abortions?
Romney is big government through and through. Look at his record in Massachusett’s. Your “choice” is a false choice. What’s the point in going over a cliff slower? The outcome is the same.
My point is that Donald Trump is a shyster and a self promoter.
He has single handedly made the news cycle about himself.
I had nothing to do with it.
Donald Trump doesnt give a **** if Newt, Romney or Obama win, so long as he gets a seat at the table.
I got no problems with Trumps BS but dont tell me he us for the people and the he is Reagan II
I have not trusted that guy in years. Reminded me too much of Mitt.
Yep, by people who support Mitt the flip flopper. Why do you support him?
\Ive already ruled them out on their actions.
Santorum and Paul are both so sanctimonious I cant bear it.
Sure, Trump worked for his money. But it was in a field where you need to grease the hands of politicians in order to succeed. You need all kinds of permits, for instance. And there are all kinds of inspectors. At a certain point, when you are building large skyscrapers in cities, you need to have the pols on your side.
And in the cities where Trump was involved, that was mostly Democrat pols.
...appealing to the naive among Tea Partiers by promising to take on President Obama as no one else could.He wants to be Romney's running mate. I can't think of a better one. ;')
