Greg Hengler Anyone shocked? Me neither. Furthermore, are you shocked that on Hannity the other night, Trump expressed how much he liked Reagan. Below the video, you will see an excerpt from his 1989 book, Art of the Deal.

It’s called sarcasm.
The Donald seems to be a contraian. When a republican is POTUS he's democrat, when a democrat commie Is TOTUS, he's republican. I do want to remind you about a small incident in Palm Beach. The Donald flew over his Palm Beach property with pride an over sized American Flag. The Commie local government demanded he take it down. He sued Palm Beach and won. The flag flew proudly, then he sold the property to a Russian capitalist at a healthy profit. What can I say. He's The Donald and he's bringing the fight to Obama for the moment. I'm sitting back and enjoying it.
I suppose it's possible for a man to come to his senses after being wrong so many times, but to assuage my doubts, Trump would have to act like a conservative for 4 years and then maybe run in 2016.
How do you know that she doesn't have such a strategy? Do you think she would blab it all over the web so that Obama's hit squads could attack and defeat it before the gate even opens?
Trump's message resonates: we need to be strong economically. We need fair trade, not free trade. Give America a strong economy, and jobs, and every man can be king of his own castle, not a peasant in a shack he rents from a government that has its head up its ass. That is what is resonating.
Find me a Republican who has articulated it half as well and you will see Trump fade. Trouble is, none has. He puts the big picture in a nutshell that folks can feel at a personal level, without the equivocations and the “well, it's more complicated than that” and the “in a global marketplace, with our various multi-lateral military commitments and inter-dependencies, you have to understand that...” Hence we have Trump. He is making the sale.
Only Palin comes close in persuasiveness, but her record is thin. Not thinner than Obama’s, but thin. Christie has shown it takes a goomba to take on the goombas, and I like that. NO one is going to be Ivory Soap pure - I want the man or woman who will give us a strong economy and the freedom to run my own castle. The latter clause opens the door to issues of morality and essential liberties - you have to have life, liberty, and property to run your castle. The primaries and due dilligence will help me sift on that.
How's that NAFTA working out for you?
Common versions of the nursery rhyme include:
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.

Trump is nothing more than a showman who will utter whatever words will garner him the most attention at any given time. He`s completely amoral, with his “compass” focused only on the closure of a deal. One month he`s for universal health care, and the next he`s calling for repeal of ObamaCare. One month he`s blasting Reagan, the next he`s a Reagan conservative.
He also has donated to the political campaigns of Hillary Clinton, Charles Shumer, Charlie Rangel and Anthony Wiener, among others.
But, the unforgiveable offense in my book is his position on eminent domain abuse. He`s quite for it, so long as it benefits him. His record plainly shows it. He`s bully as a billionaire CEO. He`d be far more dangerous as President.
I`ve never trusted Trump before and will not in the future. I don`t give two sh*ts about whatever political party is Trump`s flavor of the month, he will never get my vote. When the primaries shake out and he`s atop the Republican Party, I`ll be voting for a third-party candidate.
I`m for letting Trump pound away at Obama all he wants. It doesn`t change the fact he`s still an arrogant pr!ck and absolutely no fit for the Presidency.
I am not defending Trump he is probably attacking Obama for Hillary and wants to divide but the media sure are attacking him and digging. The media want Romneydemocrat.
If the media dug like this into Obama as professionals; America would not be in the peril she is in right now.
Donald Trump is about one thing and one thing only, Donald Trump. He is a political agnostic. He would screw a Democrat in a business deal just as fast as he would screw a Republican. He would build a 100 story abortion clinic and sell it to build a 100 story church - if he could make money on it.
If you want a President who would be fiscally prudent, wouldn’t compromise with anyone and couldn’t give two squirts of goose crap about any social issue, he’s your guy.
What’s clearer than anything is that he’s in effect been running for President for a very long time: he’s always considered himself to be in that company, as far as power and influence goes, so he has no trouble whatsoever passing judgment as he sees fit.The more of this stuff and these statements we’re reminded of, the more it looks like he hasn’t thought very well of ANY President, except the current one when it was fashionable to do so.
Eat right, sleep well and get a lot of exercise. You want to look good just in case you have to run through the streets naked.
I think that Bachmanns stock went up a bit basically because she was pushed by the MSM. But now the same MSM is pushing Trump.
Why is it that MB barely registers in the Hot Air poll etc, same deal for Trump.
Palin is the only way to go.
“As flawed as he is, Trump is superior to 0bama.”
Any well groomed Jackass is superior to Obama!
I can hear Trump now, not to worry folks, I am going to be guided by Ted Olson in my court picks...LOL
I am very dubious of Trump. It might be that the utter failure of socialist Obamanomics has caused him to have a revelation about conservative values, but I don’t want to elect a Johnny-Come-Lately-to-the-conservative-movement kind of guy.
That said, if it’s him versus the Teleprompter Pilot, I’d probably vote for him because even a RINO is better than a radical left-wing Marxist usurper.
I guess you missed post #1
Bachman is a real positive possibility in my mind. I really wish Demint would run, but he has said he won’t. Cain seems like a great guy, but outside of the Tea Party he has no name recognition. Palin has little chance of election because the liberal media has so slandered her that no independent swing voters will ever know the truth about her.
