“Donald Trump has declined an offer to deliver a prime-time speech at the Republican National Convention,”

Doesn’t the VP selection give a prime time speech?

Trump is a ‘rat (maybe of the historical variety, but still a ‘rat).

Nah. I’m guessing 65% Pawlenty, 35% Ryan, 10% Portman.

Given all the water carried by RUSH for Romney he ought to get the ‘prime time’ by the GOP-establishment. Then he can praise his good buddy Elton Jon and trash that slut, what-is-her name and say a prayer to the WALLStreet BULL!!!!

you don't think Etch-a-sketch/Boviator 2012 is a winning ticket? It's got a certain ring to it. At the very least it could make a winning video game.

He should open a comb-over concession at the convention center.

If these GOP idiots really did offer Trump a speaking opportunity, they are even dumber than I thought they were.

Trump is NOT a Conservative, by any stretch.

He is a bloviating wind bag with an ego bigger than every other part of his being.

His “empire” is often a financial house of cards, ready to fall at any minute - as it has a number of times before - always propped up by bank loans or private investors or both who in sum usually have, collectively, more in a Trump venture than he does.; and when his ventures fail, as may have, they lose more than he does.

He’s a salesman and the only thing he’s selling is himself.

Underneath, politically, there is neither a Conservative or a Liberal, just an opportunist.

"Trump is NOT a Conservative, by any stretch."

So, neither is Romney.

Y'all aren't seriously thinking that the GOP establishment is going to change it's stripes at this point and give the conservatives any more than lip service if that, do you?

Given that 65+35+10=110, this is an argument for Ryan.
