First Palin, now Trump?? Circus 2012 begins.

I have serious doubts about the Tea Party's decision making skills. Sarah Palin and now Donald Trump?? We've had the discussions about why Palin is unfit for the office of POTUS. 

Donald Trump. Where to begin? Many are admitting GWB was not all they thought he was what with the wars, one of which was not warranted at all and diverted our attention to the real problem that caused 9/11 - not to mention the fact that we put these on credit, the economic situation which was ignored or not noticed until the very end of his term, and the cowboy diplomacy that ruined our reputation. So after that's behind us, let's get behind a guy who will be Bush's worst points amplified. Bush favored big business. Trump IS big business. I don't see any advantages to electing this guy except if he promises to pay off the national debt and gets rid of our credit dependence. Even then, there are a whole lot of disadvantages to consider...

Donald Trump appears to be much closer to the dictator people tried to make Obama out to be. But he is pro life and anti gun control and that's all a lot of people need to know. So what if he's already admitted that instead of diplomats, he'd like to see the slimiest, sleaziest business leaders of New York (that he knows) running the foreign policy show. The mafia maybe? If you don't pass our resolution or get on our bandwagon, consider yourself a target for assassination?? Is that how to get a stronger, better reputation (That's if you go with his view that others view us as weak- I think our reputation got better after Bush, myself...)? He says he doesn't want nice guys in diplomacy or wants to scrap diplomacy altogether and go with sleazeballs. ??? What is this? Throw out negotiation. My way or the highway (Bush) - to the extreme. That's how he wants to deal with other countries. What obout opposition in his own country?? If he doesn't like some Americans' views, what will he do? Declare in reality show fashion- "You're fired!" ?? He thinks other countries view us as weak. Sounds like he's interested in North Korean strength, rather than American values-- at first blush anyway.

This article has 3 interesting reasons he won't run
1. He donated to Democrats
2. He's as divisive as Palin, but has considerably more who hate him than love him.
3. His policies will raise prices dramatically.

His poll numbers do jump when you look at just "Birthers," though...

This guy worries me. He talks like a dictator, not someone interested in representing others. I still need to know more about what he believes, what his governing philosophies are. What I do know makes me uneasy. He sounds like a guy used to getting his own way and not playing well with others which doesn't bode well for the top job in a democracy. Will he play by the rules and respect democratic values or will he find a creative way to get around it in sleazy businessman style? I need to hear a bit more on how he plans to work with and hear those opposed to his views (inside the country; we know he'll railroad his own views through with foreign countries) and how attached he is to our form of government. Does he think of America as a giant business? Lots to consider. Kind of hoping we won't have to consider him.

Even though Huckabee's Christian Zionism would really destroy any progress in the Middle East and cast doubt on how separate church and state would be, I still think he'd be a more stable, sane choice than Trump or Palin, if I were Republican, that is.

  1. The GOP is like the "Chicken Littles” always saying that the “Sky is Falling”, like the same ones that were the “Chicken Hawks” ("W" Wars), big talk no courage.

    The United States, favors creativity wherever it can be found. We're apostles of prosperity and defenders of the free exchange of ideas and when more people in more countries are free to rise, to invent, to communicate, to dissent, it's not the doom of United States leadership, its the triumph of the American way.

    Generations have worked hard and sacrificed much for the country to reach this point (individuals and our unions!), and with further hard work and sacrifice (along with our relentless self-doubt) the United States will rise again, we do not tire and we are coming back, no matter what the “Chicken Littles” keep saying about our nation. Never Bet Against the United States!

    Our current President travelled under a USA passport long before he was elected President, but I guess the quacky BIRTHERS, must believe that the USCIS – United States Passport was in on the lie, please, grow up, you are wrong! Remember when some contractors were busted during the “George W. Bush” administration for looking at our current President passport file (how quick you forget).

    The Birthers just HATE and can’t debate!
    Have any of the quacky BIRTHERS presented any credible proof that will standup in court? Answer: No
    Have any of the quacky BIRTHERS won any Court Cases? Answer: No
    They are just mainly backward, uneducated, white people who HATE our half black President.

    The majority of the voting public ask “where the proof”, show some proof BIRTHERS or the voting majority will continue to see you as dumb, stupid or racist, maybe all three. Can you blame them?

    Still, I really hope one of these retreads and blowhards runs for president, not because they have a chance of winning but because I like to see the train wreck that they will cause.
