Will Donald Trump be the Next President?

I haven't thrown my cracker in the soup yet but here goes.

Trump is an outsider and there are a lot of Washington insiders who want the job. There are also a lot of Republican hopefuls who are politicians - like the mealy mouthed RINO, Mitt Romney, like the fringe player, Ron Paul and the mainstream politicians like Newt Gingrich who do NOT want to see Trump run. And that makes me want to see him run.

Drop on over to Atlas Shrugs and watch the interview Trump did with Meredith Vieira (NBC). In the interview, Trump said that Obama did one thing well -- he ran for office. Other than that, he's been a dismal failure. He has challenged Obama to prove that he's a US Citizen ("I'll show you mine, you show me yours.") but doubts now that he was born in the US.


Trump has some things going for him:

1. Fiscal conservative who identifies with Tea Party values.
2. Has run companies, has made and lost money and knows the difference between the two.
3. His philosophy is AMERICA FIRST. And if there is a slogan for the Trump campaign, I think that will be the cornerstone. 
4. He's NOT a politician who speaks out of both sides of his mouth - and in a lot of ways, he's sort of a male version of Palin without the vast hate and spin from the mainstream media.
5. He would clearly restore America without apologies.
6. He's be good for business and business is good for employment.
7. He may not be super strong on foreign policy - or maybe on other policies, but with Trump, you can expect him to hire talent and lead.

How do YOU rate him against Palin, Huckabee, Romney, Gingrich and Pawlenty?

What do YOU think?

American Politics

It's tedious to listen to the doublespeak coming from the Democrats and their stooges in the mainstream media. Or am I the only one? There is not one whisper about the Democrats failure to formulate a budget last year, but endless howling over some very miniscule cuts to the budget that the Democrats want to cling to.

Obama's own debt reduction committee made draconian recommendations -- which he's forgotten about. The federal government is spinning the inflation we're all feeling, and telling us over and over again, "THERE IS NO INFLATION" in the hopes that if they tell us that enough, we'll believe it. They consider it politically viable to do that, to oppose budget reductions and to put off the inevitable crash until we hit the wall. 

Our national sense of greed and entitlement will be our undoing. And I wonder when enough is enough?
