I applauded when Donald Trump jumped into the Republican presidential nominating fray. Here was someone with overwhelming national recognition due to his celebrity status, as well as someone who was politically independent due to his wealth. Someone of that stature could potentially drive a stake through the heart of the Republican establishment and forcefully blunt the folly of political correctness that has inundated American society. During the early stages of his campaign Trump exceeded all expectations in both of these arenas. However,as the novelty has begun to wear thin and his speeches and talking points have become annoyingly repetitive the question must be asked:who is Donald Trump?
.....he has dramatically changed positions on taxes,health care,gun control,labor unions,immigration and abortion over the past 20 years....there is no thinking person,much less a politician,that has not evolved in their approach and positions on various political issues over the years particularly as they get older and circumstances change.
While Trump's vacillations on issues over the years are not overly troubling on the surface,these dramatic evolutions do require a thought provoking examination of his character and who he truly is...
..In a deposition,conducted on December 19-20,2007,the following exchange between Trump and the attorney for the Defendant took place [Trump:I'm worth whatever I feel]:...
Over the years Trump has contributed enormous sums of money to individual Democrats and party campaign committees including the most unethical and partisan Senate Majority Leader in recent history-Harry Reid...[justifying]these contributions as being necessary to essentially buy influence in order to get his real estate projects etc. approved...
..but that does not explain when asked in February of 2014 who were his favorite journalists,he listed such liberal luminaries as: Maureen Dowd,Diane Sawyer,Andrea Peyser,George Stephanopoulis,Bob Scheiffer and Mika Brezinski...in 1999 when he quit the Republican Party saying, "I just believe the Republicans are just too crazy right."?......

He’s the Establishment Elites’ (Dems or Reps) worst nightmare.
......Romney’s solution of “self deportation” for illegal aliens made no sense and suggested that Republicans do not care about Hispanics in general, Trump says.
“He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal,” Trump says. “It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote,” Trump notes. “He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.”
The GOP has to develop a comprehensive policy “to take care of this incredible problem that we have with respect to immigration, with respect to people wanting to be wonderful productive citizens of this country,” Trump says.
“.............However, of the nearly $420,000 Trump has donated to committees, the largest recipient has been the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee with $116,000 - or more than one fourth of his total contributions to all party and political action committees.”
More from Trump:
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said this week in Iowa that there aren’t many evangelical Christians who hail from Cuba.
“Just remember this - you gotta remember, in all fairness, to the best of my knowledge, not too many evangelicals come out of Cuba, okay?” Mr. Trump said at a campaign event Tuesday. “Just remember that...just remember.”...
Seven months in, none of your crap sticking, one candidate out and another one headed that direction, do yo ever ask yourself if maybe you have the worst selection of race horses ever?
In 2019 will you please tell the forum who you’re backing in advance, so I’ll know at least one person I shouldn’t be backing?
This incessant Trump-hating mewling and whining we see each and every damn day, is pathological.
I would some respect for him if he would not have attempted to hide his progressive view by becoming “republican”. He is as far left as Hillery.
So, are we to sympathize with those who see Trump as a moving target; especially when these editorialists are bad shots?
September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack
"In 2012, as Obama was running for re-election, Trump called Clinton "terrific" again in an interview with Fox News, saying she performed well as Secretary of State."....
July 15, 2015: Donald Trump: .."When I needed Hillary, she was there."...
Dec 9, 2015: Hillary Clinton's most repugnant lie
The lie's even in her words at the Sept. 14  ceremony: "We've seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with." Dec 9, 2015: Email Released by Judicial Watch Shows Military Forces Were Immediately Ready To Move Night of Benghazi
"....It should be noted that at least one survivor of the attack waited for 20 hours on top of a roof before the assault was over and before help arrived..."
July 15, 2015: Donald Trump" .."When I needed Hillary, she was there."...
Well it’s certainly something before logical, that’s for sure.
January 12, 2016:
(CRUZ):I will say that it’s more than a little strange to see Donald relying on as authoritative a liberal, left-wing, judicial activist Harvard Law professor who is a huge Hillary supporter (Ed. note - Laurence Tribe). It starts to make you think, “Gosh, why are some of Hillary’s strongest supporters backing Trump?” You know, the last couple of elections the Democrats have gotten the nominee they wanted to run against in the general election. It seems the Hillary folks are very eager to support Donald Trump and the attacks that are being tossed my direction.
And Cruz has his SuperPac Masters.
And in other news, Walker is still not running.
Your desperation is showing,
Night after night..., how’s that working for you?
Oh, that’s right, Trump 40% and lead foot 13.
Keep up the good work.
What about Trump and his liberalism?
