The GOP nominating process is going to be the best show in town….
It also shows the old adage “There’s a sucker born every minute” is very true for the GOP primary electorate.
Donald Trump’s past past positions, as well documented in his books and endless TV appearances, are directly opposed to that of most of the Conservative GOP voters. But they are only paying attention to what he is saying now…
Mitt Romney must truly hate him. He’s been trying to get away with that trick for years…
The good news is none of these publicity whores currently at the top of the GOP rankings can win a general election.
But it’s going to be fun to watch!
Out with Sarah. In with The Donald.
President Barack Obama has launched his re-election bid in a low-key manner, but the Republican Party’s search for a challenger seems stranger by the day.
GOP celebrities like Sarah Palin aren’t getting much buzz. Mainstream candidates like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty aren’t getting much traction. It’s people once considered highly unlikely to compete seriously for the party’s nomination who are creating big stirs in early voting states, a reflection of an unformed and uncertain GOP presidential field.
GOP activists in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina appear deeply intrigued by, and open to, a run by Donald Trump, the publicity-loving business tycoon and host of NBC’s “The Apprentice,” even as he perpetuates falsehoods about Obama’s citizenship and questions the legitimacy of his presidency.
“I hear more and more people talking about Donald Trump,” said Glenn McCall, Republican Party chairman in South Carolina’s York County. “He’s got people fired up.”
These Republican officials and activists stopped short of saying they see Trump as the eventual nominee. But they said their party is hungry for forceful, colorful figures to attack Obama and other Democrats on health care, spending and other issues.
