He is smart. Don’t think it’d come to it, but if it came down to winning with Trump or losing with Mitt or Huck or Newt or TPaw, I’d take Trump.
I love that he’s saying what he’s saying: quite startling from within the party of invertebrates!
What do you do if he wins nomination? Do you vote for him then?

Frederick Christ Trump, born October 11, 1905 in Queens, NY, died June 1999 in Queens, NY
Mary Ann MacLeod, born May 10, 1912 in SCOTLAND, died August 7, 2000 in Queens, NY. Arrived in US October 5, 1935. Married January 1936. Naturalized as a US Citizen March 10, 1942.
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Donald Trump is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Comrade Barry.
That has to be what it is MrB, plus, he has never been shy.
Lt Col Allen West 2012.
Someone else suggested c he was clearing the way for Hillary?, PaLeeze... (and the Jews stayed home on 9/11 and Dick Cheney planted explosives in the twin towers.) C’mon man, that's ridiculous.
He could be doing both. He could just be running interference for other republicans and discover himself leading in the polls and decide to actually go for it.
Personally, I think he is running. He very much COULD win. Writing him off as unelectable is silly. Thanks to Bill Clinton, morals don't matter anymore to be president. He would pull in moderates and democrats. He very possibly could win NEW YORK. Death knell for democrats.
I think he speaks to the common man. A no BS, in your face, straight shooter, business mogul who can fund his own campaign. The times and circumstances are PERFECT for a Trump candidacy.
I'll wait to hear more and listen to what he and others have to say before I make up my mind, but if I were to vote today ...... a vote for Trump would be strongly considered.
Its possible that could be Trump.
Over Obama? Hell yes!

Trump will not win the nomination. But he can succeed in completely polarizing the Republican party.
Now, I guess we Conservatives can beat the drums for “OBAMA’S MEXICO CONTRA”, much as the left did during Reagan’s “Iran Contra”. Reagan said he wasn’t aware of that either; but, of course, the affirmative action President will be believed by leftists in all 57 states now that he’s denied knowing about it.
He is Palin sucker Puncher—He’s her attack dog doing the dirty work she can’t. He would make a great VP. Even Beck wouldn’t dare to attack Obama this way—How many would bring up the BC? I give Trump credit—he’s doing the nation a service!
Absolutely agreed, Mr. The Donald.
And I’m going to add this. If he continues to call a spade a spade and take on this pansy ass enemy of america president directly like he is...
I’ll vote for him.
I am DAMN tired of guttless repubics.
Hell! I might not even be here to even worry about it.
If by some fluke he's nominated and Barrys the alternative, I certainly could see myself voting for him.
He donated to them not out of love, but for the same reasons that many businesses make campaign contributions -- to buy access to politicians and to influence their actions on matters of importance to the business. When this sort of thing happens in third world countries, we call it bribery. When it happens in the United States, we call it good business, charitable, exercising our Constitutional rights to free speech, whatever.
It's a Constitutional requirement, one that Obama apparently has not met. What's worse is the political and judicial enablers who are destroying our nation and it's standing in the world by their dereliction of duty. Both the candidacy and the coverup should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of America's laws and those involved should be punished to the fullest extent of America's laws, no matter their political or judicial standing. Media sources involved should also be penalized (or at the very least called out by name) for their participation in the greatest political cover-up of all time. Political parties involved in the cover-up should pay for costs incurred.
Calls are being made.
A hard-core socialist with no background, either in accomplishment or personal history, was elected.
Can it get any worse? Can anyone remember 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980?
Trump uses campaign contributions as a businesses hedge against retaliation. It’s a business practice. Paying off political parties and different types of candidates is insurance by placating the politicians for you and your business against them passing ‘unfair’ laws and instituting stifling regulations, or that your business is unfair.
An example. Microsoft in the 1990s tried to stay out of politics. Gates didn’t payoff the Democrat Party so the activist Clinton administration using the Janet Reno Justice Department sued Microsoft because the Windows operating system was “too successful” - for being “a monopoly”. Bill Gates learned his lessen and now pays off every Dick and Jane politico, especially giving more to the rats. A lesson that Trump instinctively knows.
I wonder how contemporary America would cope with even-odd days.
Wealth provides protection.
I’m not too worried about Trump.
The only thing he might have to worry about is someone in 0bama’s employ sniping him.
If you are referring to the years, that was when Carter was POUS. I remember those days. It wasn’t pretty and the U.S. was at a really low ebb. Only, now under this guy, it is worse.
Exactly, Step Number One is to convince people that Obama needs to be fired, the next step is then to figure out who should replace him. Trump is taking care of Step One.
Under Obama we have depression.
“When it happens in the United States, we call it good business, charitable, exercising our Constitutional rights to free speech, whatever. “
And when politicians do what they feel they must, to advance their agenda, even if it abandons principles, we call them RINOs.
If Trump does it as a businessman, fine. When or if he throws his hat in the ring, this is fair game. As a politician, a representitive of the people, principles matter.
Well we all know The Donald is the master of the ghetto beatdown. Just ask Rosie O’Donnell. He has a way about him that is very persuasive and hard to hit back at. Its pretty sad when none of the duly elected Congress critters can sit down for an interview and just tell the truth about the Chinese and the Saudi’s etc. Only Trump has the guts to just say it. He is totally right about us keeping 25,000 troops in S Korea all these years for free. He is the only one asking where all the cheap Iraqi oil we were supposed to get has gone.
Right now I’m hoping Bachmann and Cain get in this thing. If not I would take long hard look at Trump. We need somebody to shake things up this go around. It cannot be business as usual or we are going to lose this country. The greatest President of our time was Ronald Reagan, a movie actor.
‘Malaise’ was just a nice word, a spin word, to describe the lack of business expansion, high interest rates, high unemployment, lack of job growth, and so on. It was just another depression as well.
“...He pushing buttons that would normally be political suicide. Why? Whats Donalds upside?...”
He has more money to lose than I do if Obama totally destroys this country. I would say he is “heavily invested” in America’s future.
“I’m not convinced he’s unelectable. Surely, 20+ years ago he could not get elected, but in today’s environment I think he could. Trump says a lot of things that resonate with the common man on the street, beaten down by the last few years of a horrible economy and a faltering democracy. I’ll give him one thing, he truly is a patriot and cares about his country. He shoots from the hip, which would probably get him in trouble in a primary, but in this day and age...if someone like Obama could be elected, the old rules are out the window.”
I agree just wanted to change it up a little...
I’m not convinced she’s unelectable. Surely, 20+ years ago she could not get elected, but in today’s environment I think she could. Palin says a lot of things that resonate with the common people on the street, beaten down by the last few years from a horrible leftist economy and a faltering democracy. I’ll give her one thing, she truly is a patriot and cares about our country. She shoots from the hip, which would probably get her in trouble in a primary, but in this day and age...if someone like Obama could be elected, the old rules are out the window.
That is all...
As Rush said the other day, Trump is not one to “comb-over” difficulties.
Or he is taking the wind out of Sarah Palin's sails (as polls indicate). Many of the same people willing to vote for her will be happy voting for him. After all, he's also a really big celebrity willing to take on Obama.
If Trump is indeed a stalking horse for Thunder Thighs, I call it a good thing. Blacks make up 12% of the population and vote in near unanimous fashion for anyone who looks like them. If Hitlary actually primaries FUBO and wins, the Blacks will stay home ( if they don’t riot on the loss) and the Pubbies get a 12% cut in the RAT vote. The way the country is diced up, that would be enough to elect a decent Republican candidate, that is, if one can be found.
One difference is that Perot appealed to men, and Trump appeals a lot to women. He will be a power broker and could very well cause a split in the party due to his social liberalism. This will be a dangerous game.
I totally agree with you that Donald Trump is a patriot and from that perspective I respect him. He puts his own country first and that surely is very attractive. My reservations about him are around his historically being a New York Republican at best, socially liberal and that it will be a hard sell for him in the conservative South. So winning the GOP nomination would be a lot harder than the general election.
Does he try to unify and treat the social conservatives respectfully or does he try to divide and conquer? No question in my mind he could bring a lot of Reagan democrats home but I believe if we don’t get a conservative president next time the Depression will drag on and we could very well have war at home. We will see.
I don't see the TV celebrity, billionaire casino owner convincing enough voters to take him seriously enough, for him to have a real shot at the nomination.
However, I do like the fact that he's forcing some taboo subjects into the main arena of public debate. He's uniquely positioned to do so, as he really has nothing to lose if he's attacked by the left.
The MSM can't hurt him, so he's free to speak his mind, and he's so visible, that millions of Americans will hear him. He's doing the right an enormous service by breaking the ice on these subjects. We will see which Republican hopefuls actually have the cojones (or ovaries) to take advantage of the opening he's provided.
I do agree he is a longshot for the GOP nomination. He spoke in support of unions in a recent Slate interview:
“Ive had great relationships with unions, and Ive made good deals. Ive made a lot of money, I mean, Ive made many billions of dollars and in many cases Ive been dealing with unions. So, really, collective bargaining doesnt bother me so much.”
He can be very disruptive by playing to the middle. Depends a lot on how he treats the social conservatives and Tea Party.
If he comes in to divide and conquer the right,he could very well decide to switch and take Obama on in the Democrat primary for the precise reason you say. He is already popular with the MSM and if the radical left attacks him he can take the “moderate” donkeys, whatever that is. He could look very appealing to them and what I see is that he is socially moderate at best. He is playing a dangerous game and by the way I think he could beat Obama in a democrat primary.
He is the only one addressing the China issue.
Oh, that'll never fly, now that he's on record as wanting to seek the Republican nomination. Democrat voters will never forgive him for having 'gone to the dark side', and Obama & Co. would rip him to shreds for having waffled on his political affiliation.
What if he ran as a DEM?
