Donald Trump, Gloria Allred tease 'October Surprises' about Obama, Romney
The Post Standard ^ | 10/23/2012 | Geoff Herbert

Posted on 10/23/2012 8:42:21 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Following Monday's final presidential debate between Republican candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, what's left to influence voters between now and election day? An "October surprise" could be on the way from both sides of the race.

According to Politico, Donald Trump said that he'll reveal "very big" news about Pres. Obama but wouldn't elaborate further on what it would be.

"Something very, very big concerning the president of the United States," the "Celebrity Apprentice" show-runner told "Fox & Friends" on Monday. "It's going to be very big. I know one thing — you will cover it in a very big fashion."

Trump told TMZ that an announcement would be made around noon on Wednesday and that it could possibly impact the election.

Though he previously considered running for president himself, the billionaire endorsed former Gov. Mitt Romney earlier this year and has been a longtime critic of Obama. The White House released the Democrat's birth certificate last year after The Donald and other "birthers" claimed Obama was not born in the United States.

Trump's mysterious announcement could get competition from another "October surprise" news event, however, courtesy of high-profile lawyer Gloria Allred.

"Here she comes," The Drudge Report's Matt Drudge wrote. "Hearing Gloria Allred out there again, about to make a move. After all, it's her time of the campaign. Team O at the ready!"

She's refused to confirm it, but Slate reports Allred is expected to drop a bombshell about Romney and abortion. Breitbart points out that Obama's recent "Romnesia" attack may have taken the word from Mormon feminists who criticized the Republican years ago as being unable to recall specific details of his advice on abortion to female congregants.

Anyone else want to lock both of them up in an empty bank vault until after the election?

~~~The White House released the Democrat’s birth certificate last year after The Donald and other “birthers” claimed Obama was not born in the United States. ~~~

Let’s see Obama release that “birth certificate” to a court of law, either a Federal Civilian court or a U.S. Military court.

Bet he won’t do it. Because he knows what will happen to him for submitting a forged document to either court.

On the one hand, anticipating a surprise minimizes the impact.

On the other, Alred killed Meg Whitman’s chances (for CA Governor) in 2010 introducing us to Nicky Diaz in October 2010.

So it could still work.

Ummm no....Want to know why that scumbag harridan Allred has not done anything yet, because she has nothing with any legs. What she is going to trot out some women with the face of a catcher’s mitt, complaining she was bullied into not having an abortion 30 years ago? Oooh the horror , an election game changer, maybe this women can come on TV and cry and that would be good for .0000001 percent of the vote. I think also Allred has money issues and her own skeletons and does not need that kind of whoop ass coming down on her. She may try some stunt, and MSNBC will cover it for a news cycle and the other MSM folks will hyperventilate, but when the polls don’t move, they will drop it. Its over, let’s work hard and finish this thing and stop waiting for calamities and conspiracies

Trump always seems to come up short, he’s big on hype but the substance doesn’t really live up to it. With the birth certificate controversy he failed to question the legitimacy of the forged document in a clear and coherent way, thus essentially taking the issue off the table. Fail.

Allred has a much stronger track record of pulling off dirty tricks that work.

Contemplate Allred having something that she pulls out that decisively changes the momentum in the race and costs Romney the election. To me that would be an amazing finish to the campaign. It would be horrible to see Obama reelected under any circumstance, but imagine his reelection being tainted with a media induced feeding frenzy by a floozy like Allred.

How do the big money people who’ve sunk hundreds of millions into the race respond to their investment being destroyed by this harpy? How do the millions of citizens view the legitimacy of Obama’s re-election if it is predicated on a dirty trick? How does the GOP House respond to Obama’s legislative initiatives in this case?

Seems like it is the very worst case for America. Obama wins an empty victory and lacks the legitimacy to govern.

Whatever Gloria has re: Romney/abortion, it’s going to be something aimed right at evangelical Christians, think they will be the first to ditch Romney, ala Mark Foley.

A U.S. Citizen cannot merely claim to be a foreigner and the receive financial aid reserved for foreign nationals. Foreign Nationality must be proven with verifiable immigration documents.

Regardless of place of birth, non-citizens are eligible for Federal Student Aid if they qualify. Which non-citizens qualify for Federal Student Aid?

A U.S. permanent resident, with a Permanent Resident Card (I-551), or a conditional permanent resident with a Conditional Green Card (I-551C)

Other eligible noncitizen with an Arrival-Departure Record (I-94) from the Department of Homeland Security showing any one of the following designations: “Refugee,” “Asylum Granted,” “Parolee” (I-94 confirms that you were paroled for a minimum of one year and status has not expired), T-Visa holder (T-1, T-2, T-3, etc.), or “Cuban-Haitian Entrant”

The holder of a valid certification or eligibility letter from the Department of Health and Human Services showing a designation of “Victim of human trafficking” (only foreign nationals are placed in the Federal foster care program administered by DHHS.)

A resident of the Republic of Palau (PW), the Republic of the Marshall Islands (MH), or the Federated States of Micronesia (FM)

A Canadian-born Native American under terms of the Jay Treaty

If you are neither a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen, then you may qualify for non-Federal student aid if you are in the U.S. on:

F1 or F2 student visa
J1 or J2 exchange visitor visa, or
G series visa (pertaining to international organizations), or
Other categories not included under U.S. citizen and eligible noncitizen

.....forged document .....

I object to your provocative terminology. Since the creative use of photoshop was demonstrated by Team Obama on the WH Web site, I was inspired to create my own car and boat titles, my own title to my home, my own Medical Diploma, my own Medical License, and to give my dog Fido the legitimacy he has always craved with his very own Birth Certificate, Social security #, and since he's a patriotic canine, his very own Selective Service Card (not to mention registering him to vote as a Democrat).

It is very harsh of you to criticize our POTUS for merely assembling his own documentation from stuff he picked up in Hawaii, which is none of your business anyway. Anyway, if he had a birth certificate, it would look a lot like sort of the one he posted for us, now wouldn't it? So what's your beef, big boy?

Since no court in the land will look at your (and Sheriff Joe's) evidence, let's stop calling this highly creative use of modern technology a "forgery." It's art.

Airtight bank vault. Stripped nekkid and handcuffed together by their left wrists. Give each of them a claw hammer. Coat the floor with used motor oil. Video camera in each of the upper corners.

Pay-per-view.

Proceeds go towards paying off the deficit.

Nah

Allred is not a pleasant woman(bitch), who is well-known as a media whore who represents sleasy people. Trump has between 22000-25000 employees, all of whom are well paid.

Trump contributes to our economy, Allred bankrupts small businesses.

Voters are probably more “forgiving” of blacks dealing dope in their youth than whites.

It’s just the double standard our guilt-ridden country has allowed itself to suffer.

Obama sold cocaine as a youth will probably not be as scandalous as “Mitt Romney had an affair as a Mormon Missionary in France” ( for instance ).

The former is EXPECTED and COMMON PLACE, the latter (assuming Allred brings up a charge similar to that one ), will be more unforgivable of a Mormon missionary because it is NOT EXPECTED.

That’s just the way America has allowed itself to devolved into.

It worked in California. It will play a lot differently in the rest of the nation.

My guesses.

Trump's people have been collecting relics of Zero since the last election and have had DNA analysis done. Zero's real father is not Barack Sr or Frank Marshall Davis but Satan.

Allred will bring on stage Romney's other six wives and their 34 children.

For some strange reason - I thought she represented Paula Jones against Bill Clinton - so I did some checking. Not so.

Being a dedicated Dem - she realized the potential in digging up dirt on pols. Dirt on Dems don’t matter, but unproven slurs against conservatives has a big payoff. Election manipulation.

I just saw that on another thread, my response was this:

If this is divorce papers, barring some totally unexpected earth-shattering aspect:
1) the media ignores it
2) Obama campaign states brief outrage to marginalize it then ignores it
3) Mitt Romney is forced to do the same
4) Obama either isn’t harmed or gets a slight bit of sympathy
5) Donald Trump is an ass with a toupee. Still.

TRUMP: Obama is partially bald but has developed a clever technique of combing the long hair on the back of his head over the top of his head to conceal his baldness. If I tried this stunt it would look like I was wearing a bleached coon skin cap.

If Trump is going to fink on a past potential divorce between Barky and Manchelle, this WILL backfire.

It is dirty politics and Romney has been trying to run a campaign without personal/family attacks.

Romney should immediately distance himself from Trump’s big announcement and state that Obama has been a good father and good to his wife.

From my perspective, that’s the ONE thing (the only thing) I respect Obama about: He spared us from 4 years of Clintonesque sleaze. He was true to his wife.

Absolutely.....Romney needs to come out immediately if this takes off put it to bed.

As I said before, I have to believe there is more to this, for Trump, a seriel divorcee to bring this out as his trump card (pun intended) takes some serious audacity. There must be more to whatever there is he is to release. It could seriously backfire and give Obama some underserved sympathy from the mushy centre/undecided ground.
