DONALD CHUMP AND HIS SPIN (Mark Levin)
Mark Levin's Facebook Page ^ | April 16, 2011 | Mark Levin

Posted on 04/16/2011 8:57:04 AM PDT by Virginia Ridgerunner

Look how Chump operates. Caught red-handed now with his vicious attacks on George Bush, who most conservatives had issues with, he now says but for Bush there would have likely been no Obama. That may well be true. I have been a harsh critic of Bush's spending, including in my book. But Chump was calling Bush EVIL and demanded his IMPEACHMENT because of the Iraq war and in the middle of that war. He said Bush lied to get us into Iraq. His comments were vile and outrageous, not unlike the America-hating leftists who sought to undermine are armed forces there. Now he wants us to believe that his criticism of Bush was because Bush's poor record set the stage for Obama? Chump attacked Bush over Iraq because if you were a big-mouth, attention-seeking liberal, it was the thing to do. He had no altruistic or principled conservative motive for doing so at the time and expressed none.

As recently as last year, while conservatives and Tea Party activists were organizing and rallying against Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their radical agenda, Chump was helping to fund some our opponents. He contributed to left-wing, Tea Party-hating menaces like Chuck Schumer, Anthony Weiner, and Harry Reid. What about his contributions to Charlie Crist, while Crist was running against Marco Rubio? Did he donate to any of the Tea Party candidates? Did he contribute to the Tea Party movement in any way, with time or money, before today? Why not?

Chump also praised Nancy Pelosi. He thought she was great. I played the audio. I guess he was just mistaken, again. He supported universal health care, but not any more, of course. He supported abortion and gay marriage, but that was then, this is now. He supported John Kerry for president in 2004, but that's because Bush was so evil. He leaned on government officials to use eminent domain against a little old lady whose home happened to be in the way of a parking lot he wanted to build for one of his casinos in Atlantic City, but he has always been for private property rights.

So now Chump rails against China and demands Obama's birth certificate and we are supposed to swoon over the man. But when asked about the Ryan budget, he turns stupid again -- he says Ryan should not take the lead on this, we need a bipartisan consensus to move forward? And with whom do we build this bipartisan consensus? Reid? Obama? Is Chump really this dumb, or is he, once again, trying to figure out which way the wind is blowing?

Chump is a phony and dissembling. He called a hastily organized press event this morning because I, and others, are on to him.

TRENDING: Trump lashes out at George W. Bush and Obama

Today he is speaking at a local Tea Party rally. And why? Because now he wants our support, not because he supports us or our principles, or ever did. Chump is about Chump. And he thinks we're too stupid to notice. Are we?

It is fascinating that at the time someone is finally publicly attacking Obama (and doing so very effectively), conservatives attack that person like he is the enemy.

Conservatives know a conservative when we see and hear one.
Trump is NO conservative, more like a Ross Perot with a bad
comb-over.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but in the end it’s still A PIG.

Trump may be a Republican, but he’s NO CONSERVATIVE. We don’t need Republicans, we need CONSERVATIVES.

Maybe Conservatives can see through this life-long liberal and smell a rat. This guy has never been on our side. He makes Machiavelli’s Prince look like a pansy and is not to be trusted. Trump has been financially tied to the hip with George Soros to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars and has always been close to the Clintoon camp.

“Chump is about Chump. And he thinks we’re too stupid to notice.”

Apparently he, and his handlers think so, and from what I’m seeing just here at FR they might be right.

I think any of those here at FR that are so damned righteous about RINO’s should be kicked in the ass.

Trump is Trojan Horse, and should be made the Trojan end.

Chumps bottom line is being severely hit by our trade deficit with China and our growing national debt. So now he suddenly cares about the Marxist in the White House?

Obama's Praise of China in State of the Union was "Inappropriate"

I think perhaps Levin should speak with Sean Hannity - since the two of them go way back.

Hannity seems to be, starting to come around.

Levin’s dismantling of Trump last night was epic. It took most of an hour, starting after his opening monologue (in which he reamed Zero a new one) and continuing into the second hour. The Great One at his best.

The night before he tore into Mitch Daniels and Jeb Bush on illegal immigration. He’s on a roll...LOL.

“conservatives attack that person like he is the enemy.”

Yea, and I think us Conservatives may be on to something.He is the enemy.

DONALD TRUMP donates $50,000 to RAHM EMANUEL campaign for Mayor in Chicago. “Illinois law placed no limits on political contributions until Jan. 1, and Emanuel made the most of the opportunity. He collected more than 70 contributions of $50,000 or more, accounting for roughly half the $10.5 million he raised by the end of last year. Those contributions alone were more than was raised by all of the other mayoral candidates combined.
Many of his biggest contributors live outside Chicago. He received large checks from New York (the financiers Roger Altman, Ronald Perelman and Donald Trump each gave $50,000); Silicon Valley ($50,000 from Steve Jobs); and especially Southern California, where Emanuel’s brother, Ari, a powerful Hollywood agent, raised money on his behalf. David Geffen gave $100,000, Steven Spielberg $75,000.”

Remember the article back in November in the Huffington Post (we can’t post here) Soros had said he had given up on Obama and was looking elsewhere. A lot of the speculation was Trump.

Trump has been useful at getting out the word on Obama and a number of other things, but his very recent past shows he hasn’t had the action to back up the words.

Let him talk - he’s doing yeoman’s work right now. Let’s just be smart enough not to make him the nominee to run against the Zero.

What is your question? Just because Trump is attacking
Obama does not make him the right presidential candidate.
Trump is a blow-hard moderate trying to shoehorn himself
in front of the RINO line. Trump is trying to get out in
front of the parade line. Grandstanding is no substitute
for conservative principles. Trump has none.

Levin has asked - Ok my smart business man, tell us exactly what you received in return for those campaign contributions?

If he got nothing it doesn’t make him look very smart. If something it makes him look corrupt.

Like I told you the other night, the same people who are buying into this Trump mania are some of the very same people who have been attacking her consistently since 2008. There is a correlation, and I'm bringing it to everyone's attention.

Oh, and BTW, just to remind folks once again the context of all of this...

Next for GOP leaders: Stopping Sarah Palin

Levin is just Savage on Prozac. Both of them are decent guys who go off the deep end at times.

Levin fails to understand WHY Trump is gaining traction - because NOBODY ELSE HAS THE BALLS TO DO WHAT TRUMP IS DOING. NOBODY. Including Levin himself.

I think Trump and Palin have more in common, than different.

They’re certainly treated about the same.

In fact, listening to Trump this week on Rush’s show - there was an interesting exchange where Rush was asking Trump about a possible announcement. Trump was dodging somewhat, and the topic touched for just a moment on the disclosure requirements to run. Trump said, in a meaningful way, something to the effect “you might be surprized” with his announcement.

A thought came to this poster listening to that exchange, that Trump might be riling up the base, going after Obama, and then might just throw his support to Palin.

To avoid having to divulge his own finances...

Sure would be awesome.

I’m personally surprised that Mark Levin (who must get paid big bucks for keeping up on current events) just found out that Trump was no fan of GWB or the Iraq War.

Many people here were not fans of Bush or - I suppose - the Iraq War.

I’ve always liked Trump despite disagreeing with him on many things. I’m enjoying his attacks on Obama.
