    So i was watching the news last night after i came in from building fence. It use to be a way to relax but i swear my blood pressure rises now when i watch the tv and scream at it. Anyways they were talking about Mr. Trump. How he has switched his position on abortion, taxes on the rich and a few other things. They also pointed out his campaign contributions of the past. Top this with his blabbering about Obama's Birth certificate and you have a great distraction. Anyone else thing he could be a setup from the left as a decoy? I mean anyone that cares doesn't care anymore about Obama's birth certificate. There are way bigger issues and he keeps bring that up like miss direction. I honestly think Trump is only running around to divide/confuse some republicans. I think we have a bi-party problem. I don't vote party lines I vote for people who will fix the issues. From what i can see that's not anyone who's running yet except maybe Rick Santorum. That's another discussion for another time. Comment on Trumps miss direction.

    TV face time. Any publicity is good publicity for the rich and notorious. He's (in my mind) a waste of oxygen at best and poor entertainment to boot. I'll give him these two, he's a consummate risk taker and has a most excellent accountant.

    As far as I am concerned, D. Trump is just another VAIN, Oily Slick, Self-Promoter..... there is little difference, between him, and that Know-Nothing Yahoo, we currently have in the WhiteHouse... They are ALL Talking Heads, and anything that comes on the Tube, IS just "Entertainment" like Pro Wrestling.... As long as you know "Going in" you can't be fooled as easy as the sheeple, who think that the "Packaged Goods" being sold there, are for REAL. It is just like the Internet.... some folks think that if it is "ON the Internet" it must be true, or REAL.... Well, we all know that is just NOT the Case.... and there are VAIN, Oily Slick, Self-Promoters, and Know-Nothing Yahoos, everywhere, even on the Internet.... Yes it is TRUE.... Do NOT Trust your LIFE, and those of your Loved Ones to ANY of these types.... The Days of Walter Cronkite ARE OVER.... and Politicos have been corrupt, since there were Politicos.... History is FULL of corrupt Politicos, going back eons.... Trust your OWN Intelligence. Do your OWN Research, into things that interest you, and if you have a GOD, ask Him to enlighten your MIND, so that you can SEE, with Knowing Eyes... My Opinion.... YMMV.....

    Trump is just playing games these days ....... he needs his ego stroked daily and moans when he doesn't get enough attention ....... his TV show is crapping out soon and he needs a new toy .......

    When the campaign gets in full gear and the work really begins ....... Trump will bow out

    Ever been at a party held next to a pool where nobody has a swimsuit on, things are rocking along and, suddenly there is an unexpected splash?

    Everyone's attention is on what/who caused the splash.

    Donald Trump is financially capable of running--using only his own assets--for a considerable span of time. He has awesome name recognition and he speaks well. He has chosen to make some controversial ("splashy?") remarks; he has subsequently gotten a lot of attention from the media.

    Long term, I do not think he has the stuff to win the top spot for the Republican Party. I am concerned that he has said that he may run as an independent if he does not get the Republican nomination. If he did that, it would fracture the Republican vote and the Democrats would re-elect Obama.

    However, if Trump succeeds in drawing the early hostile fire of the Obama "Opposition Research" folks, he may end up prematurely drawing down (ie. wasting) their assets. This would ultimately be a good thing for Republicans because the more assets the Democrats pour into defeating people who will not be in the 2012 Presidential election, the less they will have to try and smear or drag down whoever does run for the Republicans.

    I applaud all of the savvy, courageous Republican poseurs who draw hostile fire prior to the actual start of the main event.

    Please keep in mind that this intense hostile action by Democrats may be why we do not see some candidates that excite us quite yet.

    Ok, lets think about this logically, Yes he is a plant, just like McCain was. It is a designed ploy to take serious votes away from say a ron Paul........Someone who could actually do the country some good.

    Trump made a decent splash when he said some of the things people are saying; then he kept his mouth open and showed his butt big time.

    Yeah, and with all the oral flatulence off gassing the floatation, he's going to sink like a stone. Soon, I hope.

    I must admit I enjoy Trump poking at 0bama. 33% of Independents and 11% of Democrats agree with the "birthers" and so far Trump is the only person who said it.
    Other than that Trump is an idiot.

    Well, in the spectrum of disagreement, I will do so. I actually am beginning to think T would make a very good president for a few reasons. One, he is not one of the good ole boys at all. He does in all respects know how to run a business and make it work. Our govt is nothing more then a business although with nobody at the helm that knows what the he.. they are doing. He says what he believes and I also like that in a person. Sure he made a lot of contributions to the "other party", as most wealthy people often do. In doing that, no matter who wins, he in turn wins. Remember, most of these people that are lining up to run are also professional politicians, and know how to say what they perceive that we want to hear in order to vote for them. And as far as being a plant, who on earth could afford him. Talk about a plant, think about this, have you ever seen O talk about anything without his teleprompter . He strikes me as being groomed and planted in the white house by none other then soros. Just my opinion.

    I respectfully think you're delusional. The man is a democrat and dips heavily into socialism on areas like health care.

    Yep, the more I watch the political nonsense the more I can't stand it. I used to watch and listen to hours of it a day. Now...maybe minutes. I do a lot of fencing myself....I would rather drive fence posts all day (which I did today) than watch another minute of this insane crap myself. Trump is more than likely a plant, I agree. Even still if given the chance....I would vote him in over Barrack in a blink of an eye my friends.
