He's as much of a narcissist as our president. He would make a terrible president. He is a gift to the Democrats, but he's struck a chord with Republican voters.

Dems who hope he wins the nomination would have us believe that he is tapping into the ugly and dangerous anger of white men who feel under siege. Trump proves that conservatives are angry, they cry. Welles, conservatives are angry, just as liberals were angry during the 8 years Reagan was president and the 8 when Bush was in the White House, but liberal anger is white hit and righteous while conservative anger is dark and threatening.

Sure his nonsense about illegal Mexican immigrants resonated with some xenophobes, but what conservatives (even those who would never vote for him in a primary) like about him is his refusal to kowtow to the PC Police and their tactical unit the MSM.

Republican candidates have to do two things:

1) Stop trying to curry favor with the MSM. They are the enemy and have to be treated as such. You can be their favorite Republican in the primaries but they will savage you in the general election (See McMain and the New York Times). The public hates the media even more than they hate Politicians. You are not going to lose them by refusing to play their gotcha games.

2) Stop worrying about what is or isn't PC. The public is fed up with the sort of crap that made uber-tool O'Malley apologize for saying "All lives matter." Being civil will take care of what the majority of Americans care about. If you can't do that you shouldn't be president, but the asses that booed O'Malley are never, ever going to vote for you, and the much coveted independent bloc believe that all lives matter, not just, for sloganeering purposes, black ones.

I hope one of these guys will take the proper lesson from Trump, but history shows us they run scared of people who will never vote for them.

@Finn dAbuzz,
I realize the GOP has gotta figure a way to deal with the reality that is TRUMP. Hes an egotistic schmuck who believes that he is "self made".
Fo this he flaunts his comb over and comes up with these silly assertions on air.

We Dems just love it and hope hes in it for the long haul.
I dont have to deal with him except as complete entertainment. Its all on your party. If Trump does decide on a third party run, he sure as hell aint going to be robbing the DEM vote.
Come to think of it, who IS your really strong candidate??

@Finn dAbuzz,
trouble with you GOPS, is that you seem to actually believe that you understand the Progressives. Youve made some really incorrect assertions about Reagan. I think the nation gave him and Bush I really decent :honeymoons". The deth of the honeymoon came with Clinton I. From day one ot was bullshit attempts at stories that had no legs. By the time Obama was sworn in in 2009, Ruh Limbaugh on DAY ! began trumpeting (Or in reality , basooning) how he wanted to see Obama fail in everything.
Instead, hes had more accomplishments in hi 8 years than Reagan, ad all the Bushes combined.

You keep up repeating your Nostradamus crap , youre party is basically CLUELESS.(at least thats the way I see it from all your talking heads on FOX -)

I watch FOX alot, it seems that over the last 2 years Fox has invested in a lot f hottie newsladies.
Im amazed that CNN hasnt picked up on that.

Trump will implode - it will just take time.

Clinton is behind in the polls against all the GOP candidates.

Biden has had major face lift, eye tuck, etc. Is he getting ready for a launch?

Is this the best we've got?

So did Ronnie Raygun, Dubya and Sarah Palin. Republicans have a liking for idiots.

@PUNKEY,
Given that Biden does not poll well in comparison to Clinton, he's not a good option.

I'm looking forward to Trump in the Republican debate/s, though I can't really picture the logistics with so many candidates.

Looking at a number of possibilities, I can at this point in time, say my favorite one is Marco Rubio.

He has both youth and class. I also think he'd give Mrs Clinton a run for her money. I still say that Mrs Clinton will be our next president and I also say, she dam well earned it.

Rubio's foreign policy viewpoints are amazing. He's essentially perfect when it comes to "how deal with the rest of the world".

Kasich has an outstanding record of administering a state. Ohio has thrived under his leadership as governor. If he is elected president the nation ought to do well.

I don't believe that Hillary has any chance of being elected. Not because of her though. Rather, I think the 2013 gun control debacle will guarantee a Republican victory in 2016 no matter what the Democrats do now.

Not at all. I realize that there are a handful of Republicans who hate the Constitution.

I also realize that there are a handful of Democrats who defend the Constitution. (How could I not realize it, given that I am one of them?)

By and large though, the only way to protect America's civil rights is to put Republicans in power.
