Donald Trump could actually win....or could he?



April 11, 2011 – Comments (11)

Just a thought...

I was reading an article that explains how Europe has its own "TEA PARTY" full of anger and frustration over the EU bailouts and austerity and so on.

Read this:

".....Popular anger at bail-outs, austerity and general economic uncertainty has already toppled leaders on the eurozone’s periphery: first in Ireland, then Portugal and arguably Spain...."

In short....If Donald Trump can lower the boom a bit on "Birtherism" and raise his voice on other issues that are far more important right now such as, "Giving money to countries that hate us.... buying up their OIL while we refuse to drill....Raising Taxes while overspending.......Creating new entitlements without any plan for paying for them..."

I mean if Donald Trump can pound President Obama over and over with 1 vitriolic display of hammering the GOP Voter Base anxst.....give voice to our "anger and frustration" on a whole host of issues then there's no telling...

Come "Debate time" Donald Trump would then only need to spell out solutions for the GOP voter base.  I.E.

"You heard me talk about  X...Y...and Z....and how it is all a mess.....  Well, here's my solution...for X.... Here's what we can do for Y......  and This is my plan for Z...."

T.V. Commercials can then give voice to both the heated ANGER  of Donald Trump on Bailouts, Fiscal irresponsibility, lack of job creation, over regulation,  while then summing up in 2 or 3 quick sentences Donald Trump's Solution.

Think about this.....  Sure... Other candidates will strut their stuff as well but trust me.... They will be drowned out very quick by Donald Trump.

It won't be long before GOP Voters will start thinking things like.... "Sure, I like what Mitt Romney has to say here but I heard it all before.... What does Donald Trump have to say?"

Sorta like looking for that *shock* and *awe* factor that so far only "THE DON" seems to know how to provide.

Call some of his statements over the top..... It doesn't really matter if voters can look past the bit of silliness and basically say..... "He Gets Me!"

As for winning the General Election?  President Obama will be running a campaign against himself.
So, it really matters LITTLE who happens to win the GOP primary....

The election will be about  "4 more years"  or....not.....and Donald Trump COULD hoodwink President Obama by simply turning the General Election into a Fact Based, Solutions Based, campaign that makes Obama look foolish....

You see.. Everyone knows what President Obama brings to the table.....  We all know what his SPEECH will be before he gives it....We heard it before...  We know what his policies are....

So most of the voters out there will be paying more attention to whether or not Donald Trump as a Business C.E.O. type who has gone through Bankruptcy has to say and if he says what clearly appear to be far better policies....far better solutions.....and appeal to both LIBERAL and CONSERVATIVE.... then no telling what will happen?  is reporting today a record low for President Obama in the Strongly Approve % among Liberals.....  Liberals are growing more disenchanted with President Obama.

There are a number of things Donald Trump can say that would appeal to Liberals and that is the real...real....real....danger here....  There does seem to be a bit of ANTI-WAR aspect in many of Donald Trump's words...

Will Conservatives care if DONALD TRUMP wants to put an end to the on-going Conflicts?

Conservatives will be caught up in Jobs Jobs Jobs and Fiscal Responsibility that they could live with Donald Trump being somewhat to the LEFT on foreign policy issues.  

No one would like a Ron PAUL though....too far to the left on foreign policy..... 

But..Let's face it.... The real danger is not if Conservatives could latch onto "THE DON" as a serious candidate.... The real danger/issue is how liberal voting base would respond.....if say the DON starts sounding further to the left on Pres. Obama in some aspects?

LIke what if Donald Trump happens to have a solution for closing down Guantanomo Bay that would infact please the Conservative voters at the same time?   impossible???  maybe....but who knows?

In case you have not paid a wit of attention to Donald Trump's Today Show interview...

One of the things Donald said was that we don't build the schools in Afghanistan.  We build the schools in America...

That's the ANTI-WAR aspect I refer to.... It really is there...

Are Conservatives prepared for an ANTI-WAR candidate right now and our Liberals prepared to oppose one that may in fact be legitamitly anti-war at least arguably further to the left on this issue than President Obama is?

Inspired choice.  A former casino CEO that bankrupted his casino multiple times should definitely be the president.

If Donald Trump wins it shows that we as a country haven't learned diddly-squat and we are doomed.  Donald Trump is nothing but a blowhard.  So far in this media blitz that he's done for this "campaign" he hasn't said anything of substance. All he's done, really, is lash out at people.  Whether it be Obama or Bill Cosby. This crap shouldn't even be news.  I'd vote for Stephen Colbert before I'd vote for Donald Trump.  Heck I'd vote for Donald Duck before I'd vote for Donald Trump.

I'm willing to prognosticate that Trump wont make it to the primaries.

If he does, he has the right background for the job as the past presidents have shown.  Bankruptcy.

Sorry, I couldn't get throught the whole article before posting above.

The DON can "promise" to bring the troops home thirty days after taking office and promise to close getmo and reverse the confiscation of human rights and he can promise change we can believe in.

Sound familiar?
