Donald Trump? For President?

The White House Insider thinks that Donald Trump has a good chance of beating Obama. In discussing that he has a deep critique of the Republicans.

The dynamics of a Trump campaign - I find it a fascinating prospect. He could defeat Obama - he really could. And he can play tough. All of the baggage Obama carries that Republicans are too afraid to bring up - too willing to remain politically correct. Too afraid to be seen as attacking the "Black" president...I don't think Donald Trump would have that fear. And you can't tell me there aren't a lot of voters out there screaming at their televisions or radios or whatever, wondering why somebody doesn't call Obama out on his bullshit. Just lay it out there. Stop playing nice, right. The goddamn country is at stake here and the Republicans are still playing nice.
Ah yes. First it was $100 billion in cuts. Then some $60 billion. The current figure is $33 billion. Soon to be revised downward no doubt.

He flip-flops on other issues, though:

Trump would be an excellent president and would reestablish America as creditor nation, just like his businesses! I remember when the Donald hit rough times and turned it all around, let him do the same for America and NYC, especially St vinnys hospital
Obama is not good for America!

Obama couldn't run a flippin lemon aid stand! Trump has to run and people have to vote for him. It is going to be brought up about how his businesses went bankrupt, how he screwed up this and that. I have been in construction all my life and I am going to tell you what to tell your friends when they bring this up. I am going to use the analogy of pouring concrete.

Knowing how to pour and finish concrete is NOT just knowing how to do it---"It is knowing what to do when something goes wrong." If you have never experienced true failure, how will you know when you are experiencing true success?

Trump has experience with this, he had to know what to do when things went wrong to get to where he is now.

We do NOT need to put another run of the mill politician in Washington. We need someone who is a business man, who knows when the payroll out weighs the income and something needs to be cut to make a profit. The United States needs to be profitable!

Everyone in Washington is so damn concerned with being politically correct, being one of the "Good ol Boys" that nothing is getting done that is good for the People or for the Country! This is plain to see!

The United States has NEVER been in a mess like this EVER! If Americans don't take their head out of their ass and start being "Politically INcorrect" there is not going to be a United States to worry about, the only thing you will need to worry about is learning a new language!

Trump For President.....Get Out, Spread the Word, VOTE!!!!

Why in all of his interviews does Trump have no real solutions or ideas to present about the serious issues that this country faces.

The fact that people would actually vote Trump for president is an insult to our intelligence and logic as a nation. The presidency is not about business, its not a popularity contest and its not about sensationalism or entertainment. Its about public service... something Trump knows nothing about. He would not serve the average american.

"I'm only interested in Libya if we get the oil," - Donald Trump

Does that sound like the rhetoric of a responsible, competent public servant? He is a cold cold businessman... and THATS IT!

How is it that time and time again Americans get sucked into these side show antics. I realize now what's wrong with this country... we are totally lost in the sauce... completely clueless.

Thank God that he has absolutely no chance at taking office
