Posted on 08/22/2012 9:41:31 PM PDT by tsowellfan

The Donald is gearing up for Tampa.

When the Republican National Convention kicks off next Monday, Donald Trump will have a “surprise” role on its first day, people familiar with the matter said Sunday evening.

Convention organizers won’t say what he’ll be doing in Tampa or whether he’ll address the delegates there. But they promise the controversial billionaire and prominent anti-President Barack Obama provocateur will be part of their opening day schedule...

I saw that tweet yesterday.

I hope he doesn’t build up the base and turn about and let us down.

It would be beyond the realm of possibility for me to be even remotely surprised about anything in obastard’s background or his present. It is impossible for me to loathe him any more than I do now.

I can only be surprised by any negative developments in in future... and pleased.

This is a disaster. I didn't think Romney was this dumb. Trump supported Obama in 2008, and will probably make some discovery that will lead him to endorse Obama in 2012.

Imagine, it could the ultimate attention-grabbing triumph for Trump. He could be speaking at the Republican Convention, and get up there and give a speech endorsing Obama. What would they do, cut his mic? It would be unprecedented and create unimaginable buzz. And the media would praise him to the highest degree.

I suppose Romney’s handlers want to keep him above the fray, but I sometimes wish he had more of the bold bravado of Trump in criticizing Obama.

It already is a disaster. How about a photoshop of how he really looks with a "test pilot" hair cut.

I’m really not sure what your Isaac disaster is in that picture. The thing that makes the most sense, though, studying that picture, is the 4 numbered arrows show the likely paths of Hurricane Isaac.

Do I have it almost about right?

Since Romney uses other people as attack dogs (as do most politcians)this might/might not be a bad thing.

If your scenario developes (Trump endorses O) they wouldn’t need to cut his mike. All the audience would have to do is boo..or worse yet...laugh at him.

He’d melt as if Dorothy threw a bucket of water on him. As outspoken and non-p.c. as he is, he really doesn’t hold up well to criticism or ridicule.

I think it very well could be. I remember listening to audio where a Brietbart investigative reporter was in Indonesia and said he found evidence. He should be back by now. Maybe we’ll see some proof!

For someone who loves publicity, it would actually be a brilliant maneuver. More free publicity than you can imagine.

The Isaac disaster is not in the photo. I just wonder what it will look like after Isaac hits him.

I was just wondering because the Breitbart guys plan very well and if they had hard evidence they would look for the biggest stage to release it on.

No doubt you could be right. The Donald loves publicity and it is usually all about The Donald...and he is unpredictable.

But somewhere in the back of my mind I remember a couple of years ago (after he started on the birth certificate issue) he was at some kind of dinner and O made fun of him. everybody laughed hysterically.

He didn’t handle it well and it was very obvious.

There is such a rich treasure trove of documents we haven’t seen about Zippy. If Trump produced even one of them it would be amazing.

1. Real birth certificate
2. Real place of birth
3. Real father
4. School grades
5. Citizenship documents
6. Passport
7. SAT scores
8. LSAT scores
9. College applications
10. College grades
11. Sample of Zippy’s writing (not ghostwritten)
12. Thesis
13. Logbook from hospital where he was supposedly born

Any of these would be a blockbuster. When Trump pressed the BC issue, the WH come out with the forgery and he and the MSM accepted it as genuine. That was the downside. The upside is that it forced the WH to create a forgery and put it out for people to see. This gave us one more damning piece of evidence. So did Trump help us? On purpose or inadvertently?

Something surprising that shows the current occupant of the WH is a fraud would be really nice. But I don’t trust Trump.

Acouple of weeks ago a Brietbart reporter said that he was doing research in Jakarta, Indonesia. The reporter said that he has, in hand, proof that Barry Soetoro was an Indonesian citizen.

This may have to do with it. Not 100% sure. The reporter said he would be bringing back a copy. He should be back in the States by now.

If he really has something, he needs to wait until October. The press will successfully turn him into a crazy nut if he reveals too early. That bio that BO wrote should have been held until October. Stupid to release it when they did.

A good possibility that he’ll do some sort of “You’re fired” skit, something someone else suggested in one of the first threads on this subject.

He was a registered Democrat until 2009. He later “discovered” he was a Republican. But he gave lots of money to Harry Reid and other. His best friend is Ari Emmanuel, brother of Rahm Emmanuel. He’s give a lot to Rahm.

I expect him to walk up to a microphone, give a short speech and announce, “Obama, You’re fired”.

I remember him endorsing Obama. He said he was going to run in 2008, because Bush was so evil. Face it, he’s an Obama guy, and there’s a good chance he will again.

I think Donald Trump wants to wait until the tropical depression goes away before coming out with his surprise so that he will not appear insensitive.
