Trump: George Will A "Totally Overrated Fool" And A "Hack" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | March 5, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 03/05/2012 7:41:05 AM PST by i88schwartz

On FOX & Friends this morning Donald Trump reacted to George Will's column suggesting that Republicans should focus on taking back the Senate and keeping the House rather than pay attention to winning the presidency.

"I think he's a totally overrated fool. I think guy is so overrated, I don't think he's very smart. He looks like smart with the little glasses and the hair slicked to the side. He is a guy who -- that was one of the dumbest ... in fact you talk about my Twitter, that was one of the things that was going to be mentioned today on my Twitter. I think he's a totally overrated pundit," Trump bluntly said this morning.

"Well he's a hack, I mean he's a hack. How he can say that is just incredible because I really think the Republicans, in the form of Mitt Romney, have a great chance to take the White House," Trump added.

I agree with Trump on this. Will cultivates the “I am so smart” image but he is just a status quo guy.

George Will is still a great writer when the topic is baseball.

Politics? Not so much. Remember, he has to toe the line to maintain his employment as the token conservative of the Washington ComPost.

Will is saying that neither Romney nor Santorum are likely to win the election.

Just looking at electoral vote web sites, Will is crazy.

Obama can count on winning about 12 states for sure, with about 175 electoral votes. The Republicans have strong support in all the states McCain carried, for 175 electoral votes right there, and the unknown Republican is ahead in the polls in a few other states too.

Almost all of the “battleground” states this time appear to be states which Obama won last time, and in which he is now vulnerable.

To look at the landscape, and declare that Obama’s going to win, and that we should just concentrate on Congress instead, seems like such a bogus strategy. I just don’t get where Will is coming from. This presidential election will be close, and is winnable for the Republicans.

Winning the presidency is more important than having the house and Senate.

Obama has his minions in place, they are heading big Govt. agencies for the last 3 years, so they know how to work the system, and they along with Obama will rip this country apart in the next 4 years.
We need a president to stop this. -Tom

Yeah, He says this and his “owners” at the Compost put more kibble in his bowl.

You know what is stranger, is that many a freeper will in one breathe say “Romney has no chance” and then in the next breathe will say that “Will is an idiot!” because Will just said, in essence, that Romney has no chance......

Although Trump actually OWNS country clubs, I don’t even classify him as a country club Republican. He realizes much more than most of our insider NE Rockefeller set the damage Obama is doing, and the unspeakable danger of another Obama term. The George Will set think this is just the pendulum swinging back and forth, and who is in the White House is no big deal. Trump, for all of his many faults, knows that we have to remove this guy and now.

Forgetaboutit! Trump is wrong if he thinks Obama-lite Willard will beat the real Obama.

I think The Donald by backing loser Romney is smartly banking on a new course in the SLC metro.

Mormons, ya been punked or let’s say, used by the the New Yorker. But you will get a Trump Resort out of it.

I disagree. Will is intellectually brilliant and a great writer. His vocabulary is extensive, and he arranges his words to convey the precise meaning intended. Unfortunately, he is not a conservative. Will believes that elitists in the government have both the right and the duty to live our lives for us, since they will make better decisions to meet our needs than we would on our own.

That is precisely why I haven't heard a word from his mouth in a decade.
