Letting the media dictate the ‘weight’ of a Trump endorsement is what sucks.

Trump is a player...not a patriot or politician. Any public endorsement from Trump will be a scourge upon candidate.

As I have been saying ...Romney is 0bama’s wet dream for a nomination. He represents everything 0bama has been railing against from corperate jets to private yachts...how does a Trump endorsement help Romney? It doesn’t. It just makes it easier for the progressive left to take pot shots at the candidate heading into August, Sept., Oct.

There is no hypocrisy in cheering if Trump endorses Newt and criticism if he endorses Romney.

It will be a reflection on his judgement.

Newt deserves support for his vision, knowledge, past political successes and failures - with enough humility to know the difference.

Romney has no vision or understanding and no political success - only a permanent odyssey to become powerful.

I was calling Donald Trump a clown around here when calling him a clown wasn't cool.

He's a goofy television personality who inherited a fortune. Always has been.

He has a lot of mirrors, he just buys mirrors that make him look good.

I’ve read that he cuts his own hair. Something about a phobia of having other people touch him. Just like he supposedly won’t shake hands.

Trump is a media whore clown no matter who he picks.

Did Trump hear that Romney wants to double the minimum wage? Not a good tenet for economic recovery.

So when is this, whatever it is, supposed to happen? It isn’t morning anymore. Or was it morning LV time? And morning is almost over there too. I mean, here I am holding my breath way past blue and everything to hear this great major announcement and I just can’t last much longer. Gasp.

Ditto. Not only did he inherit a fortune, he managed to p*ss it all away to the point where his only source of income is playing himself as a character on TV. His self-aggrandizing buffoonery have been laughably legendary for decades. I’m just sad that there were some folks on FR who ever took him seriously.

Went to the local newspaper:
Trump has scheduled a 12:30 p.m. (PST) news conference at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas to announce his pick.

Trump’s no fool, the more publicity he gets, the happier he is. I like the guy, but there’s no denying he is a self promoter. He’s playing both sides so they hang on every word and the media is falling for it hook, line and sinker. Perhaps they could report on real news, but I doubt it.

The “announcement” is expected around half past noon, Pacific time. They’re just waking up there, insofar as they wake up at all.

Don’t get discouraged. . . but understand who the actual electorate is.
It is what it is. I don’t like it either.

When Romney loses in the general (assuming he wins the nomination) they will just blame US, they will never see the truth and realize that Romney like the lost list of moderates before him was doomed to failure.

This clown couldn’t even put a GOP debate together..........he should hold little sway despite the media’s bias.

Cannot believe what I am seeing regarding the rise of Mitt Romney.

It is like a hostile takeover from within. Romney is a complete and utter fraud, and all of those supporting him are sell outs.

Keep fighting guys, I have seen liberals take over my Conservative Party in the UK, I never dreamed I’d see it over there......it was the final nail in our coffin, please don’t let it be the final in yours.

“Reality TV star, Donald Trump, who endorsed and contributed money to Harry Reid and Charlie Rangel will travel today to Nevada to endorse a Republican candidate?

Please explain to us why anyone would care.

Please explain to Republican voters in Nevada why they should consider the opinion of a billionaire from New York who endorsed the arch enemy of all Republicans in Nevada, and really the enemy of all Republicans in the US.

Hopefully, media reports of this event will include this delicious irony.”
