Real estate mogul Donald Trump said Monday that Republicans have "got to get tougher" in order to prevail this November, saying he thought their handling of President Obama was "unbelievable."
The one thing I have to tell the Republicans, theyve got to get tougher," Trump said during an interview with Fox News. "If they dont get tough, theyre not going to win this election.
Trump went on to say that Republicans were "pandering" to the president, and compared their current strategy to that of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in his 2008 presidential campaign.
Well, I think there are a lot of ways of getting tough," Trump said. "I think theyre pandering to Obama. I think theyre being so nice to Obama. Its unbelievable. And John McCain made that mistake. He absolutely made that mistake and you know theyre just afraid to attack this man and he should be attacked.
The reality television star conceded that he thought Democrats might have run a better convention and benefited from not sharing headlines with the landfall of Hurricane Isaac.
Lets face it, I think the Republican convention first of all was hurt by the hurricane, or lack of hurricane, you know the hurricane never really hit heavy in Tampa but I guess they probably had to do what they did," Trump said. "But the fact is that the Democrats gave a great convention, theres no question about it.
Trump added that he felt that the Republicans did not include the right mixture of voices at their party convention mentioning Sarah Palin by name, but also possibly referring to himself. A Trump "surprise event" planned for Monday at the Republican convention was canceled because of the storm.
"I think frankly I would have liked to have seen Sarah Palin speak," Trump said. "I would have liked to have seen some people speak that werent invited to speak and you know I think the Republicans did not have the right speakers. They had a lot of people that people say, who are they, where did they come from? "
When is The Donald going to reveal his big surprise???
And he would be correct.
And lame Mitch McConnell heading the senate is gonna get us where?
Now, that's just dirty. Shame on you. ;)
Yet another Romney endorser abandoning ship. Thanks so much for all your help in the primary, Don.
Whaddyamean? Didn't Romney promise that as soon as the Dem convention was over he'd cover the country with blanket bombing attacks on Obama. Right? Everybody believed it right?
To more milk toast and milk gravy.
“I think frankly I would have liked to have seen Sarah Palin speak,” Trump said.
I would have liked to have seen her and heard her also...
That's because you're a genuine conservative, ma'am. [::tips hat::] ;)
They had a lot of people that people say, who are they, where did they come from? “
They came from Central Casting and cold read their lines right off the teleprompter...
They were there to pretend Willard is a “nice” guy...
But they did have some weird stories...
I guess this means Mitt won’t make the cut for the next season of Celebrity Apprentiice.
At least, many republicans are not complete moonbats like those
democrats who believe Clinton saved the economy vs he is to blame as well for the problems. Never trusted Trump.
It could be that Romney can’t get tought against a Democrat at all. But his people were tough on Santorum. Romney is probably fearful of being tagged “racist” if he gets tough. So inertia prevails. But Akin is getting tough, right?
Don’t know where the idea came from they aren’t tough. Heard lots of Obama criticisms, and the ads are negative. Mitt is not acting like McCain so far.
Rush explained it clear enough. If Republicans lose, the entire party is done.
Shut-up Donald.....you’re obsessing over fabricated polls.
