"I love (saving) things in trouble... that's what I like to buy!"
Donald Trump spoke at a fundraiser in
New Hampshire yesterday... some select quotes:
Unlike some, I'm keeping an open mind here: like anybody else, Donald Trump has his plusses and minuses -inc. towering Palin-esque negatives in early polling- but I surely disagree with those on the Right -and specious liberal pundits- who purport to think that this potential candidacy is somehow not serious... or feel some irrepressible urgency to nip Trump's political ambition in-the-bud... why?
Let the man talk- it's about time somebody made Obama and his MSM bootlicks squirm like a worm by cracking them over the head with the truth and a few hard questions they really don't want to talk about. All the Newts and Mittens out there had their chance to back up Palin's previous attempts at an offensive on this two-bit scam artist currently squatting in the Oval Office... but instead chose to let her twist in the breeze for their own political gain.
Now somebody comes along who not only knows how to put the Bolshevik Boy Wonder up against the wall- but enjoys it and is plenty able to defend himself... so GOP play-it-safers attempt to pre-emptively undermine him, too. Contrary to their thinking (and agenda), I'd really like to see somebody like Trump in the Republican primary debates, otherwise important issues that really need to be discussed will be skillfully avoided.
Not once have I even watched a full episode of Trump's show, and would not call myself a fan of the man in any way- never even read The Art of the Deal ... (although I know some who swear by it) I also find his self-absorbed arrogance/referrences to himself in the third-party grating, and no doubt his being 3x married brings baggage.
But a friend of mine who knows The Donald recently described being screwed-over by ruthless ole Trump for a 7-figure sum on a contractual technicality- he questioned Trump's business ethics and would never do business with him again. But this same friend also enthusiastically described what Trump's undeclared candidacy is doing for the country on the BC and other issues as "a great service"- what does that tell you?
The fact now is that fresh-trained puppy Obama barks on command and fetched the BC just like Trump told him to... anybody else found the control stick yet? And Barack Obama is mortified of Trump, just look at the Alinsky-esque ambush he and that SNL guy set for him at the correspondent's dinner- it speaks volumes.
The concurrent threat Trump poses to the GOP establishment AND so-called 'progressive' Left is reason enough for conservatives to savor each moment Donald Trumps' in the race.... and judging by the glaringly biased tone of coverage, somebody out there is plenty scared.
Alas, while I -like most other conservatives- would not welcome an independent Trump run in 2012 for fear of handing the race to Obama, many voters appear to think quite differently: 80% recently told pollsters that they'd consider a third-party candidate for president- a fact surely not lost on Donald Trump.
