Does Donald Trump realize he just made a complete ass of himself?

"I have to admit that I was somewhat disappointed when the Ron Paul campaign decided to skip the Republican 'debate' being staged by Donald Trump. I was looking forward to seeing the most distinguished and honorable politician in the last fifty years making a fool out the megalomaniacal 'moderator' with the appalling toupee. It turns out, however, that Ron Paul didn’t even have to show up in order to make a fool out of Donald Trump. Trump is one of those rare individuals who can’t help making a complete ass out of himself when there is no one else around to do it for him, and this occasion was no different." (12/05/11)

Trump folds

May 16, 2011
posted by

USA Today    

"Donald Trump says he is not running for president next year, ending weeks of speculation in which he dominated headlines about the 2012 race for the GOP nomination. The real estate mogul and reality TV star says: 'I am not ready to leave the private sector.'" [editor's note: Heh ... when has that corporate welfare queen ever BEEN in the "private sector?" Half his business activity involves getting the taxpayer to subsidize his projects, the other half involves getting the bankruptcy courts to let him screw his creditors - TLK] (05/16/11)

Trump butthurt by prez jokes

May 1, 2011
posted by

Politico    

"Donald Trump pushed back Sunday at President Barack Obama for making him the 'focus of the evening' in his White House Correspondents' Dinner speech, and laced into Saturday Night Live comedian Seth Meyers as a "stutterer" whose delivery was lacking. Trump's comments came in a quick phone-in to 'Fox and Friends,' a day after he sat almost stone-faced while the president and Meyers ripped him repeatedly, to belly laughs from the crowd."

Donald Trump’s eminent domain empire

April 26, 2011
posted by

Freedom Politics
by Michelle Malkin  

"Don't be fooled by The Donald. Take it from one who knows: I'm a South Jersey gal who was raised on the outskirts of Atlantic City in the looming shadow of Trump's towers. All through my childhood, casino developers and government bureaucrats joined hands, raised taxes and made dazzling promises of urban renewal. Then we wised up to the eminent-domain thievery championed by our hometown faux free-marketeers. America, it's time you wised up to Donald Trump's property redistribution racket, too." (04/22/11)

What Trump gets right

April 26, 2011
posted by

Orange County Register
by Thomas Sowell  

"The boomlet for Donald Trump as a Republican nominee for president of the United States ought to be a wake-up call for Republican candidates and Republican Party leaders alike. Why has Trump surged ahead of other Republican candidates and potential candidates in the polls? It is not likely that his resurrection of the issue of Barack Obama's birth certificate has aroused all this support." (04/26/11)

Donald Trump: Corporatist bully

April 26, 2011
posted by

The Liberty Papers
by Stephen Littau  

"Donald Trump is the poster child for what many on the Left as a greedy capitalist; a caricature of everything that is wrong with capitalism as preached by the Ralph Naders and Michael Moores of the world. But those of us who know better know that Donald Trump isn’t a capitalist at all but a corporatist. Trump doesn’t try to work within a framework of a free market as a true capitalist would, but like far too many businessmen, he uses his wealth and influence to encourage the government to work on his behalf to his advantage (and at the expense of anyone else who would dare get in his way)."

Emperor Trump has no clothes

April 24, 2011
posted by

The Nation Blog
by Katrina vanden Heuvel  

"For a media that loves infotainment, the horse race and spectacle — and has trouble tackling real policy issues and digging deep — Donald Trump is the gift that keeps on giving: all spectacle, all the time. Now he’s out there on his ugly birther trip, riding it to the top of the polls amidst a GOP presidential field in disarray. ... if Trump is going to portray himself as a presidential contender, and the media is going to give him mega-time to do that, then let’s take a hard look at his record and his views — particularly on 'fiscal responsibility,' which Congressman Paul Ryan and the GOP say is the issue of our time."

Why Trump gets traction from trade

April 19, 2011
posted by

Our Future
by Dave Johnson  

"Donald Trump is getting traction. He is talking about trade, jobs, China, manufacturing, China, jobs, China and China -- and it is resonating with a public sick of being told to ignore what they can see in front of their faces. 'Nobody, other than OPEC, is ripping off the United States like China,' he says. And he climbs in the polls. Why is blowhard Donald Trump getting such traction from talking about trade problems with China? Self-funded, Trump doesn’t require the support of the multi-national corporate/financial elite to be heard." (04/19/11)

Trump is a laughing matter

Reason Reason
by Tim Cavanaugh  

"Sarah Palin left public life under very odd circumstances and is now best known for a daughter who dressed up like a monkey on Dancing With the Stars. Ron Paul is a sitting U.S. congressman whose son was recently elected to the Senate. Yet to go by the news mentions, Palin is the more serious Republican candidate. That’s what the media will do when you give them no reason to take you seriously." (04/15/11)

Presidential feints by two media stars

April 4, 2011
posted by

The Boston Globe
by John E. Sununu  

"Three years ago, the names Donald Trump and Sarah Palin had probably never appeared on the same page, let alone within the same sentence. ... Today, they not only appear destined for a collision in the Republican presidential primary, their lives look more and more like each other every day ... Thanks to their hair, however, it is still relatively easy to tell them apart. Both Trump and Palin also seem captivated by the idea of being president. ... They are about action, displaying power, and explaining how power should be used." (04/04/11)

"He off-handedly questioned President Obama's birthplace last week -- a comment that drew strong rebukes from some quarters -- but now business mogul Donald Trump says he's more concerned than ever that the president was, in fact, not born in the United States." (03/28/11)
