The Case for President Donald Trump

182

Donald Trump lent his voice to the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention on Monday, giving a 30-minute keynote address that made allusions to a presidential run while stopping short of an official announcement. In his time on stage, he praised the Tea Party, took shots at the presumed 2016 GOP candidates, and proclaimed himself the best man for the Oval Office. Attendees who expect nothing less than that refreshing mixture of arrogance, candidness, and plain-spoken business acumen from Trump were doubtlessly pleased.

“I can get things done,” Trump said, noting that he was giving “serious thought” to making a bid for the White House. In the speech, he threw a couple of the presumed strongest GOP candidates under the bus. Speaking on Mitt Romney, Trump said, “For him to be running again is outrageous.” Turning his attention to the man many assume will run away with the nomination, he said, “The last thing this country needs is another Bush.”

Strong talk from a man who rarely trades in anything less, but is there any reason to think that Donald Trump has the slightest chance of becoming the president of the United States?

Perhaps.

First, let’s assume that a Trump campaign is a real possibility and not just another instance of the shrewd businessman drumming up publicity for himself. As the creator and star of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice – currently on the air – Trump has every reason to use political teases to get his name in the papers. The more relevant the tycoon appears to the national conversation, the more people are likely to tune in to see him preside over the game-show board room.

But Trump is doing more than just making proclamations. According to a 2013 article in the New York Post, Trump spent more than a million dollars researching the electorate in preparation for a campaign. That indicates that the real-estate mogul may be interested in more than just some free press. So, giving him the benefit of the doubt, the question remains: is there any chance whatsoever that Donald Trump – a man seen as a sideshow clown to much of the country – could secure the Republican nomination?

The chances are certainly slim. But the road to victory is not an impossible one. Americans like big personalities, and Trump has one of the biggest. They also like success stories, and Trump has proven himself again and again in the business world. And despite conservatives coalescing around issues like immigration, healthcare, and guns, presidential elections are won and lost based on the economy. In times of peace – and this, with some reservation, is such a time – nothing matters more to the American people than the health and future of the private sector. And it is in that sector that Trump has shined.

Political strategists on both sides of the spectrum have labeled Trump as someone with nothing more than a big bank account and a big mouth, but this wouldn’t be the first time Trump has defied the odds.

Is a serious Trump candidacy probable? No way. Could it happen? American politics have seen stranger things.

    “I can get things done,” I believe that the Donald can do it……I met him back in the 80s very intelligent man, he didn’t where he is by sitting on his butt.

    1. Deborah G says

      I truely believe no one and I mean no one in the world would screw with him. he is a tough smart businesslike guy. We could do FAR worse.

      1. Combatvet52 says

        You can bank on it, i did work for him and he’s a great guy but does not take any BS period.

        1. Deborah G says

          Wouldn’t that be refreshing!

        2. Yadja says

          I hear you but we need someone who is not just tough but well informed on the situations in the world and has answers and works quickly to see to it that America gets back on top.

          Sylvester Stalone has made great movies on war etc but that doesn’t make him a soldier. See what I am saying.

          1. Combatvet52 says

            Yadja your the last person i want to argue with, Donald knows whats going on and he gets things done that’s all i’m saying, if i never worked for him or met him i wouldn’t even talk about it…..thats the difference, this man almost turned dirt into GOLD he’s very sharp.

          2. Yadja says

            It is OK I am always willing to listen and to stand down if I am wrong.

            You really believe he can do this?

            Why did he not go through with his investigations into O?

            Has he ever been downrange to visit our troops?

            Has he talked with or hobnobbed with world leaders?

            Does he know Netanyahu?

            Is he willing to stand aside and accept the advice of men who have more experience or does his ego get in the way?

            We don’t need to address the economical situation what we best to address first is Muslims in America, CAIR and our security.

            What does he understand about Islam?

            These are just some of my inquiries.

          3. Jimmy King says

            Dirt into gold??? He inherited a vast real estate portfolio from his dad. You’d have to be a moron to have that in NYC and lose money. When he ventured out of NYC, his casino’s tanked. The majority of the buildings you see with TRUMP plastered across the front are owned by foreign investors, NOT Donald, The only valid point in this entire article is this line “a man seen as a sideshow clown to much of the country”

            He is using the people and the Presidency to drum up press for his reality TV show. He pulls this shit every 4 years and morons like you people get all moist for him. Ignore him and he will go away. Like Mitt decided to do

          4. Combatvet52 says

            Who you calling a moron jackass……think you could have done better with your Dads business, why the name calling your just like all the liberals that don’t like something so it’s no good for anyone……….all i can see from you is jealousy because you don’t have what he has.

          5. Jimmy King says

            Combattwit, I’m calling everyone who gets all excited about a Trump for President bid a moron. He is a reality TV host, nothing more. He has NO INTENTION on running for President. He has proven that time and time again. He is a narcissist who hints about running to get free publicity and anyone who gives it to him honestly thinking he will run IS A MORON

          6. Combatvet52 says

            I would have love to see you on the front lines with that nasty mouth, just because you don’t like Trump you call everyone else morons OK takes one to know it……….your a sad case.

          7. Jimmy King says

            It’s you’re, you fucking moron

          8. Combatvet52 says

            I don’t use this much but you can take a flying fuck to the moon Ass Hole
            And now your a spell-check BS

          9. Jimmy King says

            lol its you’re Ok Old man It’s 5 pm Isn’t that past your dinner time in Fla. Get some rest for the big shuffleboard tourney at your trailer park tomorrow

          10. Combatvet52 says

            You’re still a insulting person but at least you were a little more civilized, and stop with the old man crap, and i don’t shuffleboard i participate in a shooting range to keep the eyes trained………….have a nice evening.

          11. Jimmy King says

            If he simply held his dads properties and did NOTHING, he would have made more money than he did. I think its time to come in from the sun old man, what’s left of your little brain is shriveling up

          12. MARYSWEET says

            From what I have heard Donald Trump say, he keeps himself well informed as to the world situation and has our country’s best interest at heart. We could do worse – look who’s sitting in the WH now.

          13. Yadja says

            An amoeba could do better than O I don’t want to go up to bacteria I want to go to intelligent human being.

            Let him prove himself by standing up against O and giving the information on O he said he was going to give.

            I want O exposed, this guy said he could do it then backed down….why…..why?

          14. MARYSWEET says

            The reason no one has been able to expose obama is because he has george soros and other very rich backers who have covered up his past. They continue to buy off people to keep his secrets. Also, the judges who have decided against forcing obama to provide his real identification credentials are obama judges and have ruled for obama. The pursuit is not over. Sheriff Joe is still pursuing this and someday the s**t will hit the fan and it will come out.
            Loved your remarks about amoeba and agree with you on that.

          15. Yadja says

            I understand. But Trump is one of the richest men in America and unlike Corsi or Tate or others he could expose his findings and Americans would listen, see what I am saying????

            Books have been published many of them with facts to back what they are saying, in fact a book called the Amateur was written with interviews from those who knew O etc.

            I thought Trump would be the one to get the truth out, all the others, even with all their sources have been shot down, he let America down and I want to know why.

          16. MARYSWEET says

            I understand what you’re saying and I agree with you. There is nothing in this world I would like more than to see obama exposed but the people who have been sponsoring him and grooming him since he was a child are far richer and more numerous and they’ve had most of obama’s life to cover up his background. The fight is not over though so don’t give up on it. The problem is there is no paper trail because it has all been destroyed.

          17. Yadja says

            Look dear there are people who know and they have had the guts to write the books and they have stored the information before it was erased off the net etc. Trump knows that if he has done his homework but something has kept his lips sealed and he owes it to us and history to expose it.

          18. MARYSWEET says

            I have to agree with you. I myself saw some of the stuff on the internet. I do feel that lives have been threatened, not just for the person doing the research but family members. That is the only reason I can think of that would stop them from coming forward and I have no doubt that many threats have been made coming from the obama camp. We do deserve to have obama exposed and prosecuted for his crimes and there are so many we don’t know about.

          19. Yadja says

            I have been threatened by Islamic loons for speaking out about the Religion of a Piece of this on and a Piece of that. They told me they were going to kill me and my family. So I understand about threats. In fact I like to share this site with people it tells how many Americans have been killed by Muslims since 1972.

            thereligionofpeace.com/Pages/AmericanAttacks.htm

            When O is gone maybe Trump will tell the story.

          20. MARYSWEET says

            I am so sorry to hear you and your family have received threats. The jihadists are such cowards. They sneak around and cover their faces, hit and run. They don’t come out fight like men. Not that they aren’t dangerous but I still say they are cowards.
            I pray that someone someday soon will present the proof we need to prove what obama really is – an illegal/muslim/communists/jihadists.
            Thank you for your service and may God keep you and your family safe.

          21. Yadja says

            Thank you so much we are all fine and doing well.

            As to my service you are very welcome.

            He needs to be brought down or Prosecuted for breaking our Federal Immigration laws and also for the Traitor he is. He has done nothing but show our enemies aid and comfort.

          22. MARYSWEET says

            obama has not only shown our enemies comfort and aid but he has supplied arms to them and financial aid. He is a traitor and should be removed from office ASAP.

          23. Yadja says

            You are indeed right on. According to the description of Treason given in our Constitution he is a Traitor. I wonder if he were White would this country have done the right thing long ago and Impeached him?

          24. MARYSWEET says

            If obama were white, he would have been run out of town on a rail six years ago. Everyone is so afraid of him that they tip toe around and won’t even say what he is and what he is doing is not only illegal but treasonous. And he is guilty of so much that we know about, I shudder to think about all the things he’s done that we don’t know about. He gets away with most of it because he sneaks around and actually carries out his plans before he announces them. He is this country’s worst enemy.

          25. Yadja says

            Today a small drone fell on the WH lawn. Touche’ perhaps coming.

          26. MARYSWEET says

            We should be so lucky. It seems as though the Secret Service is not as efficient as they used to be. Could it be because they are not happy to protect someone like obama. Food for thought!!!!

          27. Yadja says

            He has laughed at them, scoffed at them and every single important agency that protects him…….he has put them in the spotlight……blamed them…..insulted them……….just remember what happened to Caesar and Nero and so many others through history.

            I can only dream…..until the day it comes true.

          28. MARYSWEET says

            He has done all that and from what I have seen, they are not as sharp on the job as they have been in the past. I can’t say I blame them. He treats them like they’re invisible except when he demands they do something for him. If I worked for someone like obama I wouldn’t want to take a bullet for him. He isn’t worth it.
            Like you say, we can all dream when he’s no longer in the WH.

          29. Yadja says

            I would not even take a tomato for him.

            He is worth not one American life.

          30. LastGasp says

            He would never have been elected if he was whiter. No white self reproach or guilt for a white candidate. Without the race card, obola isn’t even a good lawyer. Without a green card he can’t even pick tomatoes.

          31. Yadja says

            LOLOLOL he is like a deadly virus that infected the gray matter, I won’t say brains, of many in this country but I think we know the cure.

          32. MARYSWEET says

            He doesn’t even have a law license nor does Michelle.

          33. Combatvet52 says

            Sister vet that’s why this POS has to be removed from office, sorry about the threats, have it loaded at all times they come over your door saddle they would be history.

          34. Yadja says

            Got to tell you. This IRS scam they exposed on TV the other day, I got one of those calls. The guy was Arabic for sure and first thing that went through my mind was they are looking for me.

            LOLOLOL I called my Congressman immediately and then I found out it was a hoax so called him back to say all OK.

            Shook my tree. Anyone come near my house that looks Arabic gone with the wind.

          35. Combatvet52 says

            Atta girl always have it close to you.

          36. Yadja says

            Ya betcha “)

          37. Jimmy King says

            Yadja, you need to do a little research. He has not broken federal immigration laws He has the authority to do what he did. Notice how congress still has done Nothing to reverse his acts

          38. LastGasp says

            Sorry to hear about the threats, Yadja. I must have hit a sore spot or two myself, but I doubt they would try anything up here in Idaho. It’s not like they would fit in with the locals, yuk, yuk,,,,,Hey, if you need a safe zone, you’re always welcome.

          39. Yadja says

            And they are being plunked in tiny Hamlets all across this country. The towns people are screaming bloody murder.

            Thanks for the offer we may indeed take you up on it. “)

          40. Jimmy King says

            He is worth 4 Billion. Not even in the top 100 in America.

          41. patriciaicon says

            Let’s watch the language and anger and accusations.. .my head hurts!!!!!

          42. Oldlady25 says

            No,what is not to like here? Trump is no fool, keeps current on issues and knows how to lead. He won’t say something idiotic like”I just heard it on TV”. Trump is never an afterthought for a reason!

          43. Yadja says

            I don’t like the fact he did not follow through with his saying he would get down to the facts about O and that he had a team of experts who would expose him.

            I don’t like that.

      2. eddyjames says

        We did do far worse in the last two elections.

    2. Yadja says

      Perhaps he can get certain things done in areas that he has knowledge but he has not served in the military and right now our greatest threat is Terrorism and we need someone in office who knows the score, been there and done that. We can’t make a mistake this time.

      He would be good in a new administration as would Romney and others but as the Big Cheese no.

      1. buddman says

        Donald Trump has more business acumen than Mittens as for Military current prezident Poop Shoot can not even spell military as for Terrorism O-Bungo is one of them that is why he will not fight them Romney would not even make a Cheese head let alone big cheese

        1. Yadja says

          I never said I doubted his business sense. As for Romney he understands perfectly Islam and he was right about everything he said would happen. Everyone knows O is part of the terrorist connection and strongly supports it and looks to the destruction of Israel.

          I want a General who has been around the block several times over. I want someone I can feel comfortable with and who will focus like a laser on the problems related to Muslims in this country and our safety cause buddy if we don’t take care of business then won’t matter how much business sense a man has he won’t have any country to run.

          1. buddman says

            Currently Only Col. Alan West has those qualifications but I Agree But I think Romney does not have the spine for an all out assualt on Islamic terrorists

          2. Yadja says

            I agree with you on West he truly is at this time the best man for the job and with people like Ben Carson and others in his cabinet it would be a win win for America. But like Herman Cain, Bill Cosby and any Black man who has good ideas, brains, brawn and is Conservative he has been destroyed by the incompetent but deadly Main Media.

            Romney certainly would fight Islam and he would surround himself with the best of the best, listen to his generals and I tell you now, mark my words, I served in Shield/Storm and this war as an Army nurse and read the Qur’an, studied the life of Muhammad Security and cleaning this country of Sleeper Cells, Training Camps, Mosques and Madrassas is going to be first on the list.

            I don’t want Romney, Bush, Huckabee. I want new blood, new brawn I want someone in charge so I can sleep at night without constantly worrying about what I will hear on the news next day.

          3. ShawnNJ says

            I agree with you on I don’t want Romney, Huckabee or Bush.

            I want new blood also. Like Trey Gowdy.

            Thank you for your service.

          4. Yadja says

            Welcome “)

            I like Gowdy much and have been following his career and calling his office with support for his comments and fighting Spirit. I call him Rowdy Gowdy. His office reflects who he is, his representative is charming and listens. He is down to earth and for real.

          5. ShawnNJ says

            I have written him many times to run. He doesn’t say yes and he doesn’t say no at this time.

            If he decides to run I will be on the front lines to help in anyway I can.

            I suggest all to contact him and ask him to run. The more people the more he will listen

            http://gowdy.house.gov/contact/

          6. LastGasp says

            In all honesty, I’d rather see Mr. Gowdy as the Attorney General, Dr. Carson as Surgeon General, Colonel West in the JC or as CIA chief. Dr. Paul and Mr. Walker in the White House. Senator Cruz as Senate majority leader and Rep.Labrador as Speaker. We could really roll!

          7. Deborah G says

            That’s a very good lineup

          8. Deborah G says

            I’ll do that. There is no puching that tough man around

          9. Deborah G says

            OK NOW we are in agreement. I have always said a Gowdy/Rubio ticket is exactly what we need.

          10. MARYSWEET says

            Thank you for your service. I couldn’t agree with you more regarding new blood. Unfortunately, the GOP establishment want to keep things as they have always been so it will be a difficult job to get new blood elected. I would love to see Ted Cruz or Bobby Jindal run for President and Trey Gowdy would make a great AG.
            Just one person’s opinion but we definitely need to get rid of the establishment because they are holding everybody back from accomplishing what the American people have made clear they want.

          11. Yadja says

            They are all corrupt and that is why I am an Independent.

            We as a people have to unite and we have to get the good guys in along with term limits.

            Have you checked out http://americaagainnow.com/ ? I believe you might like it.

          13. Yadja says

            Thank you will check it out.

          14. Deborah G says

            They aren’t “ALL” corrupt, they are seasoned veterans sorry. I personally know 3 Congressmen and a Senator. They are ALL very repsectful family men who teach their kids honesty and integrity. Washington is a cesspool with the likes of the evil Pelosi and SHE IS evil. She made sure O got his papers signed by twisting a few key words.

          15. Yadja says

            I stand corrected the label was not fair to the many good men/women who are in Congress including my two Congressmen.

            Needless to say the good stick out like something green growing on a face. They can not be missed.

          16. Gale says

            I’m with you.

          17. Deborah G says

            Much as I love Alan West and I truely admire him he doesn’t have the scope yet.

          18. BlueMax372 says

            The very last thing we need is a general, but I do agree that someone with a combination of military experience and experience as a governor is urgently needed to turn what’s left of this country around. Governor Rick Perry is my choice.

          19. Yadja says

            I served in Shield/Storm and this war. I was stationed at Landstuhl, Germany. We took everyone from downrange. I helped set-up Departing Warriors Medical Management Center 6mths, and worked RR 6 mths and the last 3 mths I was responsible for the Daily Pentagon Report to General Granger Euro Command.

            Every night they brought the wounded to us, I rounded up the stretchers for the Sarge and hid them. The Generals always accompanied their men coming into the hospital, they talked and walked with us. They cared, they were real men and they were downrange with their men. They were not sitting somewhere watching in Real Time. I have the greatest of respect, admiration for those Generals.

            Obama did not like those Generals or Admirals he has decimated our Military all branches of it’s greatest Patriots and for good reason, they loved America and the Military while he hates America and our Military.

            I will take a General any time of day and stand with him if he runs. This having been said I have taken an in depth look at Perry. I did this after he told O no photo shoot on any tarmac unless we talk Border. I listened to speeches he made on Islam. He was really Reagan like, it was amazing his powerful speech, his grasp of the problem and his voice. Where was that man last time around.

            I like him and would vote for him.

          20. MARYSWEET says

            Rick Perry was there but he got struck down by the GOP establishment. I live in Texas and he was our governor for 14 years and he was an outstanding governor. He has done so much for our state and will be missed but I would vote for him for President if he ran. obama really hates Perry and when they met on the tarmac in Austin, Perry was trying to give obama some papers regarding border security and obama refused to take them. But I can assure you Perry is a good man and he would make a very good President. Again, thank you for your service and God Bless you and yours.

          21. Yadja says

            Your more than welcome. I like Perry and I wish it would have been known O snubbed the papers. O is a piece of work and it is rotten to the core. I truly hate O I really do and I believe he has no legacy.

            I would feel comfortable with Perry or Romney in the WH because I do know these men.

          22. Deborah G says

            I’d like a man who RESPECTS and understands the Military I don’t have to have a miltary man per se` .

          23. Yadja says

            There are so many millions now who have gone to war that indeed our nation has wonderful, understanding Patriots all over the place and most assuredly a good man can come out from among them.

            May I add I don’t want a woman, just the way I feel.

          24. Deborah G says

            I’m a woman and I agree. The powers in the evil part of the wrld would spit on ANY woman. We need one tough Sumbitch

          25. Yadja says

            LOLOLOLol for sure one tough talking, big stick carrying bonofasitch.

          26. Deborah G says

            And THAT doesn’t mean Killary who couldn’t even stand up to a pink paws like our Bi-Sexual President with the tire tracks all over her back from where he threw her under the bus

          27. Yadja says

            LOLOL you go girl LOLOLOL

            She seems to be into abuse what with Slick Pinkie Willie and O.

          28. Deborah G says

            She’s a moron that by all accounts is gay and smells.

          29. Yadja says

            She is a triple bagger.

        2. Jarhead says

          Trump has probably forgotten more than the current POS in our WH could learn in 2000 years.

      2. ShawnNJ says

        If I have to hear one more time about Romney Im going to throw up.

        This man is a Liberal. We need Real Conservatives. Not some 2X loser who gave up at the last two debates. Thats not a Leader. Thats a loser.

        1. Yadja says

          Get your bucket under your chin cause Romney is a good man, intelligent, has understood about Islam, Russia and everything in between for years but with you don’t want him, Bush, Huckabee or Trump.

          Want a General, a military man, first things first and with the kettle of fish that O has put this country into along with Egypt, Iraq, Syrian and Afghanistan he best be a fisher of men and a good angler cause we got some fish to fry before we get down to the rest of the mess in this country.

          1. ShawnNJ says

            Romney never was nor never will be a conservative. His record shows all who he is.

            At CPAC he spent over an hour and a half trying to explain how he was a conservative. One doesn’t have to explain, they just are.

            We would not have ObamaCare if it wasn’t for Romney. He is a Liberal and always will be.

            Least not forget we have Obama for a 2nd term because of him and the establishment picking our candidate. Also over 3.5 million Conservatives stayed home because they couldn’t vote for someone who was Obama Lite.

            You want to campaign for him, go ahead. But keep this in mind, He will lose and we would get Hillary then he would be a 3X loser.

            Me I going to fight for real Conservatives not any RINO’S.

          2. Yadja says

            You are parroting what you have heard spread on the Media by those who would certainly never want you to know the truth related to Obama Care.

            Jacob S. Hacker, an expert on the politics of U.S. health and social policy, is now a professor of political science at Yale university. He is also a fellow at the New America Foundation in Washington,D.C., and a former junior fellow of the Harvard Society of Fellows. He is a third-generation progressive academic who was influenced by a famed socialist.

            Jacob Hacker not only advised Hillary Clinton and O on health care during the presidential campaign, but is also the author of Health Care for America, the centerpiece of the George Soros funded Economic Policy Institute’s Agenda for Shared Prosperity. Hackers proposal for guaranteed, affordable health care for all Americans is the foundation for O’s health care plan.

            Whoever won the underlying plan for the Democrat health care legislation would be the Hacker/Economic Policy Institute Health Care for America plan.

            Sigh……………………please look up Health Care for America briefing paper, posted on January 11, 2007, on the Economic Policy Institute website.

            You see this is how rumors get started and get so far away from the truth that it is an Urban Legend.

            The goal is a single-payer health system. Defined: “universal health care provided for an entire population through a single insurance pool out of which costs are met.” Stalin’s signature legislation was Universal Health Care. Want to know how that fared read Solzhenitsyn “Cancer Ward.”

            I really wish the American people were better informed.

            We don’t have O for a Second Term due to Romney we have O due to deceit and corruption at the polls. In Florida alone when cleaning up the polls we found 35,000 votes for O from dead people. We found boxes of votes not counted and poll officials who admitted to bias. The plane carrying the military votes crashed, yeh Google it. So don’t blame Romney blame the “Stupid”.

            I don’t want him or any other old runner I want fresh meat but I won’t demean him in any way. He is a good man. Few and far between in this country today. Plus educated and knowing what the He!! they are talking about.

          3. Phyllis says

            Dear Yadja, I am 73 and ill and fully willing to say blatantly that obamacare is a crock of crap as is everything else this administration has done.

          4. Yadja says

            I know it is and so sorry to hear you are ill. Please look into books on natural therapies, herbs etc. Just remember herbs are medicine. I also suggest you get all the information available on your illness. Get to know it and to understand it. The only way to fight a war is to know your enemy.

            My mother beat breast cancer 30 years. She had a mass mastectomy, drastic from what is done today. She had been in POW camps for the duration of WWII. We had medical books all over our home. Microbiology et al. She understood her illness. She became a Herbalist and she turned to natural therapies. It worked.

            Please do all you can for yourself and if you believe in a power greater than yourself tune into it.

            These are the times that try men’s Souls.

          5. Combatvet52 says

            Yadja it’s me again……..Obamacare a disastrous train wreck I have two friends that this O care Ins. costs them an additional 1,700 a year and their both working two jobs now to support the insurance game, i guess the truth is in the person that’s on O care to tell the truth.
            Oh and i still think the Donald would make a great POTUS
            Have a great day.

          6. Yadja says

            It has just begun with O Care. For the last few weeks people in my area have been spotlighted due to O Care. One was diagnosed with Cancer and discovered O Care did not cover her treatment. She went through He!! and high water begging to get on drug trials and finally O Care came up with a plan that would cost her a thousand plus a month. She was a small business owner.

            Then there was an article on re-admissions, they are limited, hospitals can’t refuse you care and must admit you if necessary. O Care fines hospitals that re-admit. It will cost these hospitals millions each year. He has them over a barrel.

            Then oldsters are realizing that there is much they can not have, they are looked at for pace makers, knee replacements etc. And heart surgery is out of the question.

            I am still looking into Trump. He is a good guy just would do us a favor if he would tell us what he found.

            “)

          7. Deborah G says

            As will most of us but let’s not be foolish and get in a snit so we wind up with Hillary or Biden Please

        2. OldRockerguy says

          I have to agree with you. Mitt Romney has always been on the liberal side of the Republican Party as was his father George Romney. Nominating any of the darlings of the RNC (Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie) would be a disaster for this country.

          1. ShawnNJ says

            Agreed.

          2. Deborah G says

            What we call liberal is actually Center right as most Americans are. IF one got in it would be better if it was someone like Romney or trump because they know how to work with the more conservative side RESPECTFULLY> My guess is the real conservatives without too much effort will be able to get to the new leadership very well

        3. Jarhead says

          Third time is a charm?…………….sorry could not resist…….

          1. Deborah G says

            It could be but that wouldnt be the worst thing to happen to us. O was the worst to date Hillary would be the final nail in the coffin

        4. Deborah G says

          I don’t happen to agree with you but I will vote for ANYONE on The Republicn ticket VS Hillary or Biden

      3. OldRockerguy says

        Currently, we have a non-American citizen, pro-muslim terrorist illegally squatting in our White House. There are only a handful of people who have made an issue of the constitutional legitimacy of Barack Obama’s citizenship status and his eligibility to be president. The most prominent of those (proudly) is my own Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the other is Donald Trump. What other politician has shown the courage to tell the truth about who Obama really is. Nobody can fight terrorism unless they are willing to identify who is connected to it.

        1. LastGasp says

          Check out Larry Klayman, very involved.

      4. Jim Peery says

        While Trump has not been in the military, neither has the current occupant of the white house.

        Anyone, and I mean anyone, would be better than what we have had for the last 6 years.

        It would even be better if it’s a republican.

        1. Yadja says

          There is no comparison between Trump and O, a chimpanzee has more sense and would make a better leader than O.

          I would prefer an Independent or Libertarian but I will fight and work for anyone other than a Progressive/Lib/Dem

        2. Jarhead says

          BUT even more better if NOT a muslim IslamoNAZI maggot.

      5. pianobill says

        Neither has Ovomit and Clinton ever been in the military.

        1. Yadja says

          Opantie has no experience in anything but reading a teleprompter and doing what his handlers say he should do.

          Clinton listened to his generals. If it had not been for the distraction of the T&A in his career he might have gone down in history as a great leader instead of a great lecher.

          So what is your point? Has nothing to do with what we need now.

          1. infadelicious says

            No leader can do it all. A leader hires the best men and women for each job and then listens….and gets their experienced opinions and suggestions and weighs them with others and then delegates. And you certainly cannot lead from behind unless you’re at Man Country in Chicago. btw, opantie= good one.

          2. Yadja says

            Exactly…..right on and thanks for the kudos on Opantie no jock strap ever touched that.

        2. Gale says

          They would not let him because he does not have a legal birth certificate.

      6. Combatvet52 says

        He can bring back the great Generals that Barry the King fired because he didn’t like their tactics.

        1. Yadja says

          Does he know them?

          What does he know about Islam?

          Is he willing to be humble and to Stand down and allow those in military matters to lead?

          Give me some sources please, some things he has said or done.

          I trust you.

          1. Deborah G says

            I happen to know of his organization. Key people who are the top of their field are respected and listened to.As for Islam foreign policy is like Reagan’s we win the Lose. Simple yet effective. Always be top dog and make the world respect us. he can do that

          2. Yadja says

            Sounds like something we have not heard in a very long time. But he needs the respect of the world’s leaders and anyone who is tied into Reality TV and Beauty pageants is not taken seriously.

          3. Combatvet52 says

            I’m working on it, and believe me I’m trying to get in touch with him, it’s been a long time since the 80s

          4. Yadja says

            Thank you I will look into it also.

        2. Deborah G says

          And he would he has already stated that if you listen to ANY fo the interviews.

      7. Deborah G says

        don’t kid yourself. No one gets that successful without knowing who to listen to. He would have the best for the Military that you can bet the farm on

        1. Yadja says

          That is what would be important that whoever gets into office surrounds himself with the best in every field and listens to them. NO ego should come into play.

          1. Deborah G says

            Obama missed that clue somwhow because he has the ultimate Egotical personality dosoder. He surrounds himself with radicals and Yes people.

    3. Wolfman says

      Donald Trump for President

      1. Combatvet52 says

        Rodger that Wolfman, just a shot in the dark you wouldn’t be Bobby G the plumber by any chance.

  2. Celia Gelber says

    You go Mr Trump! Our country needs a business man- not another politician! You would be brilliant and I would campaign for you!

  3. buddman says

    Trump is perfect but he is a little to Toxic for the GOP Grand Old Phuckers And the democrats Fear Him He believes in taking no Prisoners just what we Need A decisive president

    1. Gale says

      Right on.

  4. OldRockerguy says

    We do NOT need another “politician” running this country. We NEED someone with strong and successful business experience. Politicians from both parties think it is okay to rack up trillions of dollars in debt without any accountability for their reckless spending. In the corporate world those attitudes either get you fired and/or force you into bankruptcy. Sound, practical business management methods and policies will get this country back on track. One thing I like about Trump is that all of his products, though pricey, are first rate. Other politicians that are indirectly connected with businesses through their wives have crap products specifically designed to hurt us. John Kerry’s wife (Heinz 57) sells products loaded with high fructose corn syrup and other artificial crap. The same is true for John McCain’s wife who distributes third rate beer (Budweiser) that contains ingredients that only someone with a degree in chemical engineering would understand. We can’t keep voting for the same old “experienced” politicians and expect to get different results – that would be insanity. Should Trump decide to run I would vote for him.

  5. Randall McCarroll says

    He has the midas touch and that is what our country needs right now

    1. buddman says

      You are correct history shows Poss Perot would have been better

  6. south_wind says

    Because of his leadership skills, I think he is a formidable candidate. Not one to be brushed aside.

  7. Yadja says

    It takes more than money and knowing the economical situation to make a president. There is much more at stake and we already see what a person who is not qualified can do. Sorry.

    This next election is looking like it is going to be a circus and the clowns are lining up.

    Plus Trump backed down on the promise to reveal other things about O perhaps he was threatened with a Tax Audit.

  8. Morton212 says

    Trump skates too close to the edge to be a real candidate. With eight bankruptcies and three wives under his belt – he cuts a scary figure. Perhaps if he let that thing on his head escape to the wild and took therapy on removing that ghastly pout – but then he still has a moral standard to uphold; perhaps kneeling pews inside what casinos he still has left, so that his guests can pray before they too get cleaned out ?

    1. buddman says

      So the Homo prez we have now is somehow better???????????????????

      1. Morton212 says

        Huh ? Can you be more specific ?

        1. buddman says

          Donald Trump Has more Integrity and moral standards then the Boy King O-Tut ever Had Is that specific Enough????????????????????????????????????????????

          1. Morton212 says

            No. Tell me more about the ‘homo’ allegation you made.

          2. buddman says

            Talk to Reggie Love O-Bungo’s boyfriend lover

          3. Morton212 says

            Oh, I thought maybe you were going to do a tell-all. Much rather hear it from the horse’s mouth. Now don’t be shy – you obviously have first hand experience.

          4. buddman says

            Go play with yourself this is in ReggiesLoves new book! Maybe if you could read it would help But you know the old saying those of you that wish usually are Homo That is In your case Horses A SS

          5. Morton212 says

            OH MY Wtf kind of homo responce is that??????????????? who is this this leave it to beaver

          7. Morton212 says

            On second thoughts – spare us your adolescent prurient homosexual fantasies – I really did not intend to excite you. Maybe you will grow out of them one day ?

          8. buddman says

            Dear Homo At 68years old with 6 children and 14 grand kids dream on Homoism is a desease by choice I pray for people that have your desease someday like jerrys kids they will find a cure God Bless you

          9. Morton212 says

            Oh – LOL – not content with vulgar insults – you even pretend you are old and was once capable of procreation ! I imagine you are an obese old slob, seriously homophobic with little more than a vicarious sex life. Anyone as obsessed as you are with the idea that people you do not like are sexual deviants – is probably in desperate need of professional help.

          10. buddman says

            I have no time for pedophiles you should seek counciling

          11. Morton212 says

            I understand. You are tired of your own company – without any doubt. I would be too. There are sites for perverts like you – try googling.

          12. ShawnNJ says

            Easy. Leave the fighting against each other to the Liberals.

  9. Leo Klaudi says

    The Donald also has many, many contacts in the business world that might be interested in investing in upstart businesses that would grow and create lots of jobs in the manufacturing arena.
    One job related thing I see in my area (south Jersey) is a need for the huge interlocking concrete blocks used to form seawalls to hold back the bay tide surges during storms. They could also be utilized along the sea coasts. Prefab concrete walls like those used along busy highways as sound barriers could also be used as a border fence along the southern border. that would create more jobs. There’s thousands of of possibilities for jobs in products in the prefab concrete industry which is still growing. (prefab concrete walls for buildings & houses). I know of 2 companies in south Jersey that can’t produce these concrete items fast enough. That’s just one industry. Aluminum railings, ramps, bleachers, platforms, floating boat docks… the possibilities for aluminum products is endless. So is structural plastics & resins. Companies will need welders, machinists , assemblers, installation mechanics and many others.
    All job creation has to be done by the private sector who are the only folks capable of creating real jobs in manufacturing. The govt and unions must be kept out. The govt is run by people who are total dumb asses for the most part, and the unions are greedy bastards who really don’t give a crap for workers the claim to represent. Those 2 entities must be kept out of all new jobs creation or the will surely fail as Govt and Unions are counter productive in their inherent nature. That’s why big govt. is a failure.
    I’m sure Mr Trump could influence rich business people to invest in manufacturing business start ups and expansions in a wide variety of products really MADE IN USA!

  10. Michael Skok says

    He thought about running before, but he gave up on the idea. Now he is thinking about running, but will he decide later not to run.

    1. buddman says

      Trump loves Controversy and Attention LOL!!

    2. Morton212 says

      Trump will never run. Firstly he rarely spends his own money on anything – he borrows, and flips for a profit, or screws the investor. Secondly, there are not enough rich idiots to back him on a presidential run. So the conclusion is that this is yet another of his endless efforts to get media attention.

      1. buddman says

        Works every time It’s called free Enterprise

        1. Morton212 says

          Its also called screwing for profit.

  11. esqualido says

    With American taxpayers on the hook for trillions in potential losses by banks who have managed to transfer their gambling risk to them, does anyone seriously propose as a candidate for Chief Executive someone who once ran gambling enterprises?

  12. ShawnNJ says

    I will not rule him out.

    If he comes out with talking points that Americans will buy and most of the time he does, he could win the Primary.

    He would have to tone down the ego which might be hard to do. However if he spent a million researching the electoriate then I believe he will make a run for it. He has another year to learn how to tone it down so Americans will like what he has to say about saving this once Great Nation.

    There would be some colorful debates if he desides to jump in. I might even help his campaign depending on who else desides to run.

    The ones I don’t want anywhere near this 2016 election cycle is Romney, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio. I don’t believe they have a chance in he** and would only help get Hillary elected.

    We need a true Conservative like Trey Gowdey, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Rick Perry.

    If Trey Gowdy decided he was going to run I would be on the front lines fighting thr fight.

  13. Charles Rent says

    “The case for President Donald Trump” …

    Hmmm … Mental case ???

  14. BlueMax372 says

    Surprise! Donald Trump doesn’t NEED the Republican nomination to be a serious contender for the presidency.

    1. Morton212 says

      Why is that ?

  15. Joe T says

    From the mold of ****General George S Patton……..decisive and a staid USA General for our benefit….
    not for any one trying to harm us or kill us..like Obama’s kin…Muslim’s and Islamic violence towards USA.

  16. American says

    I wouldn’t dismiss Donald Trump just yet. He CAN get things done. He’s a patriot. He wouldn’t lie to the American people, and he wants to protect America. Name recognition is important and he has it. Having money doesn’t hurt either. If it came down to Trump vs. Bush or Christie, I wouldn’t vote for Bush or Christie.

  17. farm kid says

    he is stringing the people out, has been using same ole dog and pony show.

  18. walter53 says

    At least Donald has a track record of getting things done, something the last few presidents never had.

  19. Rick Rogers says

    Oh You guys got it wrong this article was not suppose to go out till April 1st..

  20. Mike Won says

    After the ass clown in charge now, another ass clown is easy to see, especially preferable to an ass clowness!

  21. Mrs. O says

    I have a lot of faith in Donald Trump’s ability to get things done. He’s tough, he’s nobody’s fool, he knows how to make money & that’s a trait our President needs, especially in today’s economy. He knows how to stand up to foreign leaders who might be trying to threaten the U.S. He’s smart enough to gather all the experts around him and listen to their input. He’s smart enough to realize that their expertise is very important & trumps any ideas he may have (unless they agree with him). Some people see him as arrogant, I see that arrogance as confidence. That’s the mistake the people made when they didn’t vote in Newt Gingrich. They saw him as arrogant. He was and is confident and was the right man for the job. Let’s not misjudge Donald Trump’s ability to lead this country back into good times simply because of his T.V. show or his hair or some other stupid thing that has no baring on his leadership skills. He’s proved he’s a leader in everything he attempts to do.

  22. Robert T. Uda says

    Our nation needs someone like Donald Trump as POTUS to solve all of the problems that Obungler has created. Trump will take names and kick butts. He has the guts and the balls to tell people, “You’re fired!” and means it. We don’t need another politician. We don’t need a smooth talker. We don’t need a political hack. We need someone who will go for the juggler. We need either Donald Trump or someone like him. Our nation is sick and is in dire need of a real leader. We need someone who knows how to negotiate and not give away the farm. We need someone who knows how to stand up to our enemies. We need someone who is a “turnaround artist” and will fix our economy. We need Donald Trump as POTUS!

  23. Neal Miller says

    I THINK DONALD WOULD BE GOOD !! IF HE WAS ABLE TO BECOME A MILLIONAIRE THE SECOND TIME IN HIS LIFE TIME !! THEN HE SURELY CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT OUR MESS !! HE REALLY CARES ABOUT AMERICA AND PEOPLE . HE KNOWS THE IN AND OUTS OF BUSINESS / BANKING / HOW TO MAKE MONEY OVER SEAS . I THINK THAT PUTS HIM AHEAD OFF MANY OTHERS WHO THINK THEY ARE QUALIFIED . (KM)

  24. Alleged Comment says

    Let us hear him state his case.

    He needs to be only clear on one thing. Will he hang barry and all the Demoncraps for treason when president?

    Then I know he will be good on all the rest. Sleep tight, America. LOL!

  25. hjjusa says

    We had Reagan, he was a star and a dang good President, maybe we need another star.

    1. Alleged Comment says

      Did you know he started out as a Democrat? Glad he saw through the phoniness of that party.

  26. Jarhead says

    First he has to do something about his hair.

  27. Bullfrogman says

    I would like him better if he didn’t have multiple bankruptcy s

  28. Dempsey Coleman says

    I think Trump would WIN.

  29. ARNOLD CARL TAPP says

    >>> IT IS A WELL KNOWN FACT THAT AMERICA DESPERATELY NEEDS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS MAN TO RUN THE BUSINESS OF GOVERNMENT IN OUR NATION . WHATEVER TRUMP IS , HAS DONE OR HAS SAID ~ HE CERTAINLY WOULD STRAIGHTEN OUT THE HORRIBLE MESS MADE BY obummer AND ALL THE CLOWNS AROUND HIM AND BEFORE HIM . NEWT GINGRICH HAD THE BEST PLATFORM EVER IN HISTORY, INCLUDING ” 21st CENTURY CONTRACT WITH AMERICA”, CUT OFF FOREIGN AID , BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT, FAIR TAX , & MANY OTHER PLANKS WHICH NOBODY ELSE HAD .
    I WOULD DEFINITELY SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP . <<<

  30. Paul Brown says

    I would like to see Donald Trump run for the WH, he would get my vote. I think he is the only one to get this country back on the right track and deal with the Chinese and the muslim pigs. He is the only one who won’t take no shit from these asshole wrap heads running around and cutting peoples heads off. He has the real balls to make these bastards stand up and listen.

  31. Wolfman says

    our Banking System and Wall Street are still full of Bernie Madoffs

    Ask him how much he’s worth and how many lawsuits he has pending for ripping people of in real estate deals.. President? Give me a break!

  33. bobangelo says

    He’s got my vote. Nobody is going to vote for another Bush or fat ass-kiss ass Christie. Romney had his shot to destroy o-asshole in the debates but he he folded. We need the Tea Party to save the country.

  34. Adrian Vance says

    Anybody, but Romney… He is a loser.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

  35. stephanie wilson says

    he is too arrogant
