Trump Fans?

Fan is short for fanatic.

We’ve seen enough of that kind of political worship from the past. The man speaks the truth. You don’t need to be a fan or fanatic to like that.

Like Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Ronald Reagan and Bill Buckley, he makes some of the right enemies. I don’t support him for the presidency, but he sure is forcing a lot of people to drop their masks and show their real faces, isn’t he? “Intervention?” We need a Bush, Rubio, Kasich, Huntsman, Christie, Pataki and Karl Rove intervention.

I don’t support Trump but if he kicks RINO ass I have no objections.

The uniparty is scared.

93 million American citizens are unemployed...and yet our leaders prefer illegals to citizens.

I won't vote for Trump for President, but I love how he's beating the establishment senseless.

> The Republican Party is a vessel, a tool for achieving conservative ends.

The author is an idiot.

We still don’t have all the candidates in the race. Once we start getting into the debates we can poo poo so and so. Till then I think The Donald is doing America a big favor by shining a bright light on a huge problem our so-called leaders refuse to deal with. The author should read this op-ed below.

No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. No, this is a coordinated conspiracy led by President Barack Obama himself. Obama himself is making the phone calls and giving the orders; he’s the ultimate intimidator who plays by the rules of Chicago thug politics.

An outstanding article. While it’s fun and entertaining to watch Trump excoriate supporters of amnesty and open borders (and they need excoriating), what will soon have to be addressed is whether conservatives really want a pro-single-payer, pro-Kelo, self-promoting Friend of Bill and Hillary at the top of the GOP ticket.

It’s still relatively early in the game, but eventually voters will start focusing on the candidates and issues. And in an America that’s sliding more toward socialism, a billionaire simply isn’t going to be elected President.

Donald Trump is simply not conservative, he is an opportunist but he is an ideological and philosophical opportunist as well as an opportunist of personal ambition. He is not a deep thinker, he is ignorant of history, he is akin to any huckster, like Bill Clinton, who can read an audience and summon up the sociopathic skills necessary to persuade by pandering. Some of those emotional hot buttons about which he panders include issues with which you and I both agree such as our trade relations with China but about which I decline to be bamboozled.

I expressed these sentiments long before Donald Trump announced his campaign but I was not alone, many conservatives have read Donald Trump right from the beginning. But Jonah Goldberg misses the point.

Conservatives and disillusioned Americans are not flocking to Donald Trump because he will cure what is wrong with the Democrats' governance, they are desperate to find someone as an antidote to elitist, statist one-party rule waxing more intrusive than tyrannical every day. The Republican Party in Washington was given Congress to stop Obama care and, as one FReeper has already observed, gave us Obama trade instead.

The wreckage of the Republican Party is not the work of Donald Trump, it is the work of John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, George Bush and Karl Rove and many others who are considerably wealthier today than when they started.

Jonah Goldberg, where were you when we were being sold out?

Trump is addressing the elephant in the room. US citizens are sick of being pushed aside for ILLEGAL immigration. We are sick of paying for them, we are sick of seeing them treated as royalty, and we are sick of seeing politicians pander non-stop for them.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump attacked Charles Krauthammer and me. By the way, I don’t blame Trump one bit for his hostility. I’d hate me too, if I were him. Still I do marvel at how this supposed Master of the Universe can be unnerved by such criticism.

He's just venting at the "fall in line" Washington establishment, to which you and Krauthammer belong. He's not going along to get along!

He’s this year’s populist clown candidate, full of bluster but absolutely empty of plans. If he was serious about politics and making a change, he should have run for mayor of New York - he started to, in fact, but washed out early on.

I didn't see the Goldberg-Krauthammer commentary on (I think it was) Monday, but I did see FNS with Will and Krauthammer.

Buncha Perrier conservatives. I was ashamed, the way they talked about him.

No Wonder he lashed out. I would have lashed out too, particularly at that pompous buffoon in the wheelchair.

It’s fortuitous that his remarks about illegals was followed by that senseless shooting of that poor woman in SF, much, much more attention needs to be paid to the fact that our complete absence of border controls leads to criminals basically roaming free. I mean, Rs and Ds are blameworthy for this, and people, esp. people who are victims and families of victims, hate it.

But aside from that, I don’t get the Trump-mania. And his past support of Hillary is damning.

But, I’m with you CW, I think Scott Walker is that once in a lifetime pol who will over come all of this BS and lead us to a better tomorrow.

Or, should he stumble, maybe our old fave from last time, Rick Perry will rise to the challenge.

I heard something from him the other day and he sounded GOOD.

Who’s going to fight for the base who put them in office last year? McConnell, Boehner and the chicken $hit senators who are afraid of their own shadows and allows obama the media to crap all over them and not give them fair coverage? Been there, done that. The country is lost anyway. Might as well go for broke at this point.

The GOP is paying the price for not listening to its base. Let the chips fall where they may. I am enjoying watching the RINOs (Goldberg include) squirm.

I’ve read the whole article now.

Trump is not a danger to Conservatism. Those of us who are, see what he is.

I am enjoying his afflicting the comfortable. But I won’t vote for him.

I truly, honestly, and with all my heart and mind think Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters are making a yuuuuuuge mistake.

The only mistake is being made by those who criticize Trump without addressing the substance of his statements. Could it be preconceived notions?

Trump can be "neutralized" in a heart beat if other candidates would address the issues as plainly as Trump does. Otherwise there is no competition.

The people of this country are being run over and ignored by both parties. People being ignored are those being hurt by criminals who move through lax borders. People being ignored are the legal immigrants who are being hurt by criminals who repeatedly are deported and return to sanctuary cities to commit more crimes.

Whenever the other candidates connect the dots and respond to the will of the people, there will be second thoughts. Otherwise, Trump is the only game in town! Our country continues to be humiliated by bad trade deals and lip service to border security.

Jonah is right, of course. But I don’t care at this point. Trumps utility is that he will force The Gutless Party to take a stand, and in my dreams, eloquently articulate why Trump is right about immigration but fundamentally wrong as someone we need to put in the White House.

A guy can dream ... its really about all we have left at this point.
