TRUMP

Go ahead and tell us what you think of TRUMP;   LET HIM HAVE IT:  Opinion?  Did you hear his speech?  Do you hate him? Like him?   A begrudging admission that he can negotiate and didn’t get where he is with anybody else’s money?   Begrudging admission that he seems to know business and is very patriotic and cares very much for our country, albeit THE most egomaniacal NUT who might have ever lived?

Your thoughts?

How’s this for a First Lady? 🙂

And, I hope some of you weigh in on my post below;  I thought it was important and would like to hear what more of you think.

    Kid, and I think his unbelievably unfettered ego doesn’t lend itself to representing 300 million people. He’d not listen to protocol, he’d probably just push ahead, ignoring Cabinet people, etc.
    I think he’s a loose cannon. But VERY patriotic and very smart.
    I hope he does get a cabinet position…why not? As long as he could bridle the ego in a bit.

    Could get fun! I’d LOVE to see Trump when faced with how he’s going to handle her past clothing, etc.!! What I meant was she’s not your typical First Lady material.

    It is a discredit to the GOP that Trump chooses their stage as a platform for his ego-fueled buffoonery.

    Non-politicians will always fail in our system. For that reason, even though I like Carly Fiorina, she’ll never make it. Its too great a leap. If she were serious, she would run for Barbara Boxer’s seat. Maybe she would win this time? Could you imagine California *leftwing loony nuts and fruits and flakes California!* having a GOP senator? (apologies, Z 😉 It could happen, and Fiorina could be the person to do it.

    Ben Carson is also a hopeless cause.

  8. I disagree about The Donald being a good President. He is EXACTLY what we need. Like Reagan, he loathes Big Government and the good ol’ boy network so deeply imbedded in today’s D.C. politics. And though a complete opposite of Reagan personality-wise, he is a patriot. He also understands the financial world even better than Romney, who was way above everyone else in 2012 in that regard, because Trump has dealt with most of the important countries around the world and understands what needs to be done to return us to greatness. The big question is, would he be willing to listen to his advisers? Military-wise, I believe he would. I also loved his idea of rebuilding our Military to be the highest it has ever been so we can fight ISIS.

    I didn’t hear his speech. I think he’s bored. And I agree with SF – it discredits the GOP that he’s on their platform. I told the Carson people almost the same (hopeless, not discredit) when they called. I admire him tremendously. He has a platform – running for office isn’t it. JMB is right, though.

I will only suggest that I’m looking for someone to be a credit to the United States of America. Most of what I see forming up now from the right is a clown car parade. I agree with SF that Fiorina has no chance to become president, but I hope she stays around long enough to chew on Clinton. She’s damn good at that.

  11. Baysider, look at it this way: What are 2 things people seek if they are able? Money, Fame, and a Legacy. He made a good President because he had the first two and needed to make a difference in this world and create his Legacy, which he did. That was also true of Romney. To prove that point, when he was Governor of Mass. he never drew a salary. He also gave away all his inheritance to charity, then went out and make his own fortune. Men of character. That’s what is needed. Of course, you could say The Donald IS a Character, huh?

    I look at Fiorina, and there is something about her facial characteristics when she speaks that I don’t like that is difficult to explain. So I wonder how many other voters would get that vibe.
    She is the anti-Hillary, but I can’t warm up to her.

    Baysider, He hasn’t a chance in hell, but no way does Carson DISCREDIT Conservatives….he represents us better than most do today. Trump is right on a lot of what he says, and his love of country is infectious but he has even less a chance than Carson and he’s embarrassing…a too discredit to the party. He needs not worry; without the GOP behind him, he’s nowhere. He knows that.
    I believe he and Fiorina, at least these 2, are ‘running’ not to win but to be loose cannons and TRY to get Americans to listen to TRUTH. Our mealy mouthed politicians who are running (most of them) are so hunkered down by the political machine that they can’t really talk freely as they might like.
    Fiorina can BLAST Hillary and not be called a WOMAN HATER (the others will be called that…once Fiorina’s died out)
    Trump can remind AMericans of conservatives who love this country, CAN pull us out of problems thru their excellent business prowess and he can do this even up to the final election day…as can Fiorina.
    I think there’s a little Reinse Priebus stuff going on here that I finally APPROVE OF.
    “Keep the guys with a real chance around, but keep them on point….let Fiorina and Trump and even Carson talk ANTI HILLARY, REMIND FOLKS HOW IMPORTANT BUSINESS BACKGROUND IS, and in the case of Carson, BRING HOME FAITH AND LOVE OF COUNTRY AND A BLACK SUCCESS STORY.” I like it the strategy 🙂

    EDDDD!! : I mentioned there was something about her looks that turned me off a couple of weeks ago here on GeeeZ and was lambasted by some of my commenters….so I’ve been laying low…you said “So I wonder how many other voters would get that vibe.”
    I DO!!! I’m actually relieved to read that from you! I can’t put my finger on it (well, I know, but it’s silly…and it’s a facial thing…nothing to talk about here)…. She is NOT likable. Period.

    See, the Leftwing controls so much media and Obama and his buddies can lie and get away with it, they can say ALL they want and nobody’s holding them accountable….and they can do the ol’ Alinsky on us and make us look bad all day and all night long…and they DO.

    I’d love to see ANYBODY versus Hillary; which is why I have said I TRULY think she’ll find some way to NOT DEBATE. Ridiculous? Maybe, but if she does, it’ll be VERY guarded and very scripted; unlike before. She simply can’t DO IT. She gets VERY huffy when challenged…look how she either can’t look folks in the eye or does that bug-eyed “I’m so interested in you” thing with her eyes……And, when crossed, she literally can’t control the disdain on her face. People hate that. YIPPEEE!!

    I DO see your friend’s point….I understand that attitude, but while I don’t particularly LIKE Trump (I have never seen a more egomaniacal person in my LIFE) I think he has a LOT more to offer than Paulson… or Obama 🙂

    Kid, I heard Hillary did that in 2008, too! I don’t remember it because I can hardly listen to her, but they say she leans heavily on her mother because her mother wasn’t RICH…so it makes Hillary look more appealing……..in spite of her millions.
    yes, she spoke about her a lot in her announcement speech…..at least the one she did yesterday, I think it was? OH, ya….she resorts to MOM because she is ONE OF THE PEOPLE, unlike herself. My gosh, every time I see her now, I think she’s more evil and dangerous than I did the last time I saw her, even if it was 4 minutes ago.
    I study her face now and see so much ego, so much hate for anybody who doesn’t believe like she does, so much disdain for people not on her side…awful stuff. And poor bill…you see him take her hand on stage, or hug and she’s ALWAYS (always) the one who puts his hand back on his own knee, or takes her hand away, or stops the hug. LOTS going on there.

    Extensive Ford analogies irrespective of treaty obligations aside, it’s refreshing to hear someone who is not afraid to call our relationship with countries like Mexico and China what they are.

    It’s encouraging to hear someone reference Patton rather than Genghis Khan when referring to our military.

    It’s refreshing to hear someone tell it like it is, rather than the U.S. Chamber BS that comes out of most the rest of the GOP, or the calculated, amoral focus-group sawdust platitudes that are vomited from Hillary Clinton’s face.

    @Z….we’ve known him for about 25 years. We were connected to people who did business with his Group in South Florida. Same as Bob Graham when he was Governor. Graham’s family had numerous properties and business interests all over south Florida too. Bob Graham was a superb Governor ….even though he was a Democrat…he was an old school Democrat like a Kennedy…or as we used to know them. He was likeable…successful and didn’t get into partisan stuff…until he became a Senator. His wife Adele was a real hoot..a charming, likable lovely wonderful First Lady of Florida too. She had a wicked sense of humor and loved being in the company of real people. ( I’ll email you a little anecdote about her later! )

    When JEB became Governor…he was every bit with the common man…or woman. He’s honest, sincere and firm in his beliefs. And…I’ve always found him open to discussion on any topic. He listened…and he acted. He sought out advice…and he was available 24/7 through email or his Blackberry. And then he didn’t need GW’s coattails either. He was always his own man. And he was our Governor before GW was POTUS. He always answered our calls…emails and was even one on one about many topics he sought our opinions or advice on. I’ll go into detail later. As a pilot…I had the privilege of flying him as a friend and a VIP passenger across the country once for about 10 days of travel for him…with one FDLE officer and his assistant. ( I Was told by my dispatcher at the time that he had asked I be on his flight! )
    I was honored…I think I sent you a pic once two of us when we landed at 4AM on our return trip?

    We had a great time with him. I really like the man. But….there are things I don’t agree with him on this time. I’m in contact with his campaign manager….asking if I want to get into this run with him…ya, I know…help out somehow? Beats me really. I think he has all the people he needs right now. And i’m not into licking envelopes for him…LOL

    I won’t vote for him…..unless he’s the party’s choice. There’s no way I’d not vote. I’m kind of stuck right now. I just wish he’d speak out like a Trump…but that’s not him. Alas / sigh.

  51. No one can dispute the [fact] that Trump has been a successful entrepreneur and that he has a lot of insight into many of our current problems. However, in his bombastic delivery he seems to ignore that as President the omnipotence that he has enjoyed in building his financial empire would be curtailed , right or wrong, by Constitutional separation of power. For this and other reasons I don’t see him as a viable candidate but I do see him as useful in his outspoken candor regarding very glaring problems facing this Nation. Perhaps that’s his real objective anyway.

How many get put into jail for drugs or shamed, only to be back into office by dumb voters? How can Hillary “lose” an unknown number of emails, yet Petraeus is canned because of a few? Likewise, how can Bill come out and say he didn’t have sex with somebody other than the First Lady (puke) in the White House and still continue? That’s why I see no value in politics.

    Having said that, I want a patriot to be my president. Not some Progressive arse who will continue to provide welfare and blame the White Americans for their lifestyles. Someone who will bring back the doctrine of the best defense is a good offense. Someone who will seriously increase border strength and force if need be. I want Obamacare burned and free medical care to illegals stopped. I wouldn’t care if he circumvents policies. Obama and Hillary have done it already and without penalty. Lastly, having been a CPA myself, I’m in favor of a simple flat tax… Period.
