Trumpís Paper Tiger Rebellion Against Conservatives
http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/44388 ^ | 2-3-2012 | Daren Jonescu

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.

"And that’s not all. Not only has Trump endorsed Mitt Romney, but he has also revived his third party blather, warning that Romney’s nomination is the only result which will guarantee his loyalty to the Republican Party. Think about this. He is saying that if anti-Establishment constitutionalists persist in fighting against the Old Boys’ choice, he will consider taking decisive action to ensure a second term for Obama. In other words, he is telling Republican primary voters that if the Establishment’s demands are not met, he might just blow the place up."

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.

That comb over is to hide the whole in his head, but his brains are seeping out in spite of it.

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.

***...warning that Romney’s 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.

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!

When does Trump's new show start? 2 weeks?? I suppose he thinks he's clever...

I really thought Trump could do good things...but picking Romney says he's not a consertvative.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

Please illustrate for us where Romney stands on the issues.

Healthcare?
Regulation in general?
Spending (including entitlement and discretionary)?
Minimum wage?
Judges?
Taxpayer funded abortions?
Gun control?

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.

Dump Trump!

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.
