Trump dumped


So we see over at Bolt’s Palace this morning that the Donald has pulled out of the US presidential Republican nomination.

Well, it’s doubtful anyone’s surprised. And yeeees, this certain blogger did like what Trump was offering, even whilst knowing most conservative bloggers (libertarian here) didn’t want a bar of him. A lot of it was that breath of fresh air factor he brought to the debate. And I still think no other Republican that has been offered up will be capable of beating Obama.

Happy to be proved wrong, but there you go.

And I still think a successful businessperson would be ideal for the US’ top job, especially considering the deficit and debt. So I guess that leaves me favouring Romney, however, lately, one’s ear hasn’t been kept that close to the political – let alone the US political – ground.

Who’s been looking good lately, folks, and why?

PS Thanks for all the email updates JM even though there wasn’t any time to use them.

Trump may win Florida yet


The other day it was reported that other Republican candidates, Huckabee and Romney had the edge in Florida over the Donald, but that may well change.

Donald Trump will headline the South Florida Tea Party’s Tax Day Rally on Saturday in Boca Raton. Trump will share the bill with Florida Congressman Allen West.

“Our members are ecstatic,” said Everett Wilkinson of South Florida Tea Party. He explained that they had polled members on who they would most like to hear speak, and Trump was the resounding first choice.

“They feel that Donald Trump understands what’s going on with their country and is standing up and actually doing something about it,” he explained.

And what’s the bet Trump isn’t one of these cretins?

H/T Canada’s finest, JM.

Trump to declare in May, not June?


According to Newsmax, yes.

Why Trump is on the money


The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis sums up five reasons why Donald Trump did so well in yesterday’s CNN poll.

He’s confident. He’s successful. The cool factor. He doesn’t sound like a politician. He isn’t a politician.

Agreed. His presence in the interviews so far and what he has to say has – er – trumped any other potential candidate, especially giggle-guts Pawlenty.

Thus, Jeffery T. Kuhner can go shove it if he thinks Trump’s popular merely because of the birther issue.

Meanwhile, Steven Crowder:

Can he win? Who knows. One thing’s for sure; if Barack Obama makes this into another election that places personality over substance, celebrity over accomplishments, I can see only one outcome…Mr. President, you’re fired.

Steven also notes in the link that Obama was elected on style, not substance. Agreed.

PS

Thanks again, JM. Really. I kinda feel like Elton John. Not in a gay way (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but in the sense Elton gets all his lyrics sent to him by that bloke, and then “just” puts them to music. I finish all my classes for the day, am finally able to get to a computer, and there’s all the links you could possibly need, plus more, ready there waiting in the inbox.

Funny. So here we have an Australian bloke in South Korea and a Canadian bloke – who’ve never met – busy every day trying to persuade Americans who to vote for in their election.

Cheers.

UPDATE

In response to CNN/ Opinion Research Poll released Tuesday that had Trump and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee tied for first place, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said voters simply knew Trump’s name.

“I wouldn’t read too much into that, in all candor,” Barbour told New Hampshire’s WKXL Radio on Tuesday. “For some voters, it may have just been that pure and simple: I’ve heard of Donald Trump, nobody else I’ve heard of I want to be for, so I’ll just park my vote for this little poll with Donald Trump.”

Trump expressed doubt that voters were simply picking whomever they knew.

“I think they know the other contenders,” Trump said, adding that former governors Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota were fairly recognizable at this point. “I have the highest in terms of name recognition.”

Instead, he attributed his popularity in the polls to his message: The United States is in bad shape and someone needs to turn that around.

UPDATE II

Out come the shouty liberals (I almost missed them… almost). TSG

Now that Trump is again threatening to run for president–and has, for the first time, gained some political traction thanks to his embrace of the “birther” movement–The Smoking Gun has examined how the 64-year-old developer has spent some of that massive fortune. Specifically, Trump’s philanthropy over the past 20 years, which has been channeled through the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

A TSG review of the group’s Internal Revenue Service returns dating back to 1990 reveals that Trump, the foundation’s president, may be the least charitable billionaire in the United States.

So what? What liberals will never understand is that a person has a right to use his or her money however he or she sees fit. It’s Trump’s money, he can do whatever the frig he likes with it. Liberals: always wanting to take your hard-earned money because they think they know better what to do with it.

So how’s that deficit (and debt ceiling) going, America? And closer to home, how’s that balanced budget going, Wayne and Juliar?

What a pathetic smear attempt. Poor effort, Ted Turner. And quite frankly, one expects better from The Smoking Gun.

Meanwhile, The One is trying to solve Arab-Israeli peace. Have fun with that one.
