  • Trump Debate a Joke? A Reality Show? Beneath Office of President?

    Maggie's Notebook ^ | 12-6-11 | Maggie@MaggiesNotebook
    I don't think so. Last night on the Fox Panel, Donald Trump was roundly flogged for moderating a debate with GOP Presidential candidates. The complaints were that Trump might still run himself, Trump is not a journalist, a Trump debate is nothing more than a reality show, it's a joke and beneath the office of the Presidency (that from Ron Paul). Charles Krauthammer joined in and agreed. Karl Rove has expressed similar opinions. Krauthammer, Rove and other elitists need to get over themselves. True Conservative members of any Tea Party can do as well as any "journalist," and a Trump...

    In response to comments from Karl Rove that candidates should skip the debate at the end of December to be moderated by Donald Trump, Trump said that in his opinion Rove was ďhighly overrated,Ē and ďbasically is a loser.Ē Rove says that a Trump-moderated debate would trivialize the process ďI donít think that Karl Rove is a smart person.

    GOP Presidential Candidate Jon Huntsman dismissed Donald Trump and the debate the real estate mogul and reality TV star will be moderating, and told Larry Kudlow heís the only consistent conservative in the race. The former Utah Governor and former ambassador to China likened the Newsmax-sponsored presidential debate to a reality show, and said he would not be participating. ďThereís some dignity associated with a run for the highest office in the land, and it shouldnít be trivialized and it shouldnít be dumbed down,Ē he said. ďIf Don Trump cares about our nationís future, he should have been a candidate...

    MSNBC host Chuck Todd and Donald Trump got into a heated on-air exchange Monday over who requested the interview. The flareup came after Todd, host of the Daily Rundown, said earlier on the program that Trump wanted to respond to a poll that showed voters were less likely to support a Republican candidate if one was endorsed by Trump. When Todd got on the phone with Trump on the air, he was greeted by the irate real estate mogul fuming over what Todd had said.

    When asked about the possibility of an independent bid for the White House, real estate mogul Donald Trump said, "If the economy continues to be bad and if the Republicans choose the wrong person, I would do it." Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) refused to rule out a third-party run for president if he did not get the Republican nomination he's currently pursuing. Former New Jersey Governor Christie Todd Whitman's Americans Elect is encouraging current GOP contender Jon Huntsman to run as a third party candidate since it's doubtful he would be the Republicans' choice (Mr. Huntsman has refused to rule...

Rick Perry, struggling to claw back to prominence in the Republican presidential race, is renewing the so-called birther issue, suggesting in a new interview he harbours doubts that President Barack Obama was born in the United States. "I don't have any idea," Perry told Parade magazine when asked if he believes the long-form birth certificate Obama released in April, largely to silence real estate mogul Donald Trump's assertions that the president wasn't born in the U.S., was authentic. "I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night," Perry said. "He doesn't think it's real." When the...

    We're thinking the odds that Trump never runs for the GOP nomination are fading. A new poll of Republican primary voters from PPP found that his support plunged from 26% last time to just 8% this time. That puts him tied with Ron Paul. Perhaps "winning" the birth certificate fight has undermined his only point of relevance in this race, although his negatives have always been sky high, with a huge block of voters always saying they'd never support him. Trump is one point ahead of Michelle Bachmann.

    Former White House green czar, Marxist, environmentalist, 9-11 ‚Äėtruther' and Mumia Abu-Jamal supporter Van Jones is kicking up a STORM. By way of the political group Color of Change Mr. Jones is doing what he does best, "reclaiming revolution," by pressuring "Celebrity Apprentice" cast members Lil' Jon and Star Jones to boycott Donald Trump. "Color of Change" hopes to hammer Jones and Jon into submission by placing the duo between a racial rock and a hard place.¬† According to the ‚ÄėChange' website, the group uses the Internet to enable its "members to speak in unison, with an amplified political voice,"...

    The Tea Party stands as a moral challenge to the status quo. Itís not a third-party movement. Itís an extra-party movement. Itís not political. Itís philosophical. It is a manifestation of the market, an example of how free minds and free will seep through the cracks of the established paradigm to fulfill unmet needs. Although it did not manifest in rallies and town halls until 2009, the seeds of the Tea Party were planted 15 years earlier. Republicans took control of Congress in 1994, propelled by the Contract with America. The sweeping reforms Republicans pledged to attempt were largely unsuccessful,...

    American commandos eliminated Osama bin Laden this week. Did they also liquidate Donald Trump's presidential run? A week ago, Trump was riding high. President Obama had been forced to go on television to confirm for the world what most of it already knew: that he had been born in the United States. True to his nature, Trump claimed credit -- and immediately embarked on a tour of New Hampshire in what seemed like a victory lap, as he talked incessantly about running for president. But there's an old axiom in Washington: The more time the media -- and everyone else...

    The fate of the Obama presidency hangs not on a birth certificate or the red ink on the federal budget but by the hose nozzle of your local gas station. Electoral discontent is measured by the price of a gallon of gasoline. Heading past $4 toward $5, that is a lethal trajectory for President Barack Obama. Enter the demagogues, especially the clown-in-a-business-suit, Donald Trump. Unfettered by the gravity that goes with facts, Trump says that he would fix the oil price Ė now around $110 a barrel Ė by facing down the producers, particularly the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting...

    Washington (CNN) Ė A majority of Americans say they would never support Sarah Palin or Donald Trump for president, according to a new national poll. A Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday indicates that 58 percent of the public says they would never vote for the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, with an equal amount saying the same thing about the billionaire businessman, real estate mogul, and reality TV star. Fifteen percent of people questioned say they are enthusiastic about Palin as a candidate and around one in four say they would consider voting for her for...

    The following comments were made in a public speech last week by a man considering running for president of the United States. On gas prices: ďWe have nobody in Washington that sits back and says, ĎYouíre not going to raise that f***ing price.íĒ On what he would say as president to China: ďListen, you mother f***ers, weíre going to tax you 25 percent.Ē On Iraq: ďWe build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road, they blow them up, we build again. In the meantime we canít get a...
  • Seth Meyers at the White House Correspondents' Dinner: Another donation to Obama

    The establishment media's reportage of the event has been utterly predictable and virtually identical, regardless of the outlet: Seth Meyers was hilarious, President Obama was even more hilarious, the buffoonish Donald Trump was rightfully skewered by both, and the audience loved every minute of it. One small factoid was left out of the media's coverage of the event. A minor detail that I had to research myself, because literally no media outlets reported it. It turns out Seth Meyers is a major Obama supporter and donor. Meyers donated to the Obama campaign on four seperate occasions in 2008, giving a...

    The greatest president in my lifetime was Ronald Reagan. I proudly voted for him twice. In 1980 and 1984, as just about 99% of those who voted for him, I was unaware he had been a Democrat (as I had been). I was also unaware Reagan had been a union president, or as Governor of California, he signed the Therapeutic Abortion Act of 1967 and had contributed to Democrats. But so what? By todayís standards, the SIX time union president Reagan would be a Democrat union ďthug.Ē But who cares? None of this would have made the slightest bit of...

    For all that flak Mitch Daniels took for calling a ďtruceĒ on social issues, the Indiana Governor is about to own one of the strongest pro-life records in the country. Daniels will become the first governor in the nation to sign a bill stripping Planned Parenthood of government fundingÖ The lefties in Indiana are going apoplectic, naturally. Danielsí response to them is simple: Stop doing abortions, youíll get state funding again. The Indiana bill also bans abortions after 20 weeks, like Iowa is trying to do. Our bill is still being held up by a few state senators. If they...
