“”bigger” must be a new season of Celebrity Apprentice.”

Lol! Could be. These north-east pol’s of both parties think that because they have strong followings in their respective locals that they have the same depth and width out in what they so contemptuously refer to as fly over country. But, once they start doing some serious poll testing most realize that “that dog won’t hunt” out here. Of course most of them don’t have a clue what that means - which makes my point :)

A fake Presidential run to increase interest in a new book?

I think he should have stuck to his plans to run for NY Governor. No matter his personal quirks, Trump would have been a vast improvement in that capacity over the current gun-grabbing, petty dictator and Nouveau Mussolini, that is Cuomo.

Do not insult Mussolini, by comparing Cuomo to him. Cuomo is worse. :-)

Well, Mussolini did make the trains run on time. I doubt that a modern liberal, like Cuomo, can even do that.

Well if New York had only cancelled the election and given Trump the job like he wanted then he would be governor.

No, the reason is NYC.

Trump does not want to preside as governor over a NYC failing at the hands of a communist Mayor.

The majority of NY voters wouldn’t vote for Trump for Governor, during the general election. I would be very surprised, if anybody with an “R” next to their name ends up winning the NY Governor’s race. RINO Bill Weld would have the best chance of, actually, winning, IMHO, but Bill Weld would have trouble winning a race for Governor in NY, too.

Ditto!

A lot of conservatives like him because he drops a good line here and there against the left, just as Gingrich does, but both men are rather shallow in the convictions department.

The Donald is not going to run for Governor because then he and Melania would have to slum it in the crummy governor’s mansion for 4 years. :-)

.....I kinda admire ole Trump in a few ways but anything he says about running for anything is pure bullshit and has about as much credibility as Obama opining about anything......

Believe it or not, it's not a toupee. I sat behind him at Shea Stadium and studied his head like science. It must take his hairdresser hours to build.

The hair emerges from his skull in lonely stalks scattered about his skull. It's then spray painted the color of a traffic cone. The stalks are grown to a uniform height of a half inch, before being bent and woven into a near transparent scaffolding helmet that floats above his liver-spotted cranium.

Lastly, it's all puffed up and charged for ionic bonding with a blondish rusty talcum powder that gives the thin hair web that fabioesque fullness that is the envy of all balding octogenarians playboys everywhere.

Well I for one would welcome Trump to run.

I would even vote for him, if someone better wasn’t running. If the 2012 field were running with Trump, I would vote for Trump.

Seriously.

My only disagree with you would be:

Obama won not only in 2008 when the media relentlessly went after Bush and people were being told by the New Speaker of the House and the new Senate Majority Leader that “the war in Iraq was lost”, but much to my surprise he won again in 2012 when the dems were beaten badly in 2010.

My only conclusion is there are now enough idiots who vote in Presidential elections to forever give the vote to bleeding heart democrats and celebrities forever.

At least they do not vote in off year elections, so we can build up conservative numbers in Congress this Fall.

But seriously, I think the presidency is gone forever. Trump could turn out to be the best we can get. Otherwise, say hello to Madame President Clinton.

“but much to my surprise he won again in 2012 when the dems were beaten badly in 2010.”

Yeah, can’t argue with that. I was surprised too. And, we have passed the tipping point where there are “more people riding in the wagon than pulling the wagon”. Getting free stuff as I saw a lady say on tv during the 2020 election cycle. So, you may be right about having lost the presidency. If Hillary runs I think she will win because there are Republican women who will covertly (lie about it) pull the handle for her.
