Not that I didn't feel this way beforehand, but after his interview with the Wall Street Journal no doubt is left. The Donald talks about how he feels that Obama's presidency is a danger to the United States. So why in the heck would he even consider running as an independent? That all but guarantees that Obama will be re-elected.
“I am very conservative,” said Mr. Trump. “The concern is if I don’t win [the GOP primary] will I run as an independent, and I think the answer is probably yes.” Mr. Trump said he thought he “could possibly win as an independent,” adding, “I’m not doing it for any other reason. I like winning.”Trump's numbers in the polls seem to be rising. This is a man who has to keep telling us that he is a conservative. He never bothers to explain all his campaign contributions to people like Schumer & Co. He even went as far to contribute to Dead Fish Rahm's mayoral campaign. Wasn't that election just a few months ago? Yeah, I seem to remember that it was. Trump's conservatism is no different than the criminal who tells the judge he has found Jesus since the crime and begs for mercy, chances are it is more a matter of convenience then some sort of conversion.
Trump's biggest appeal seems to be his embrace of the birthers. Those who believe that Obama was born in Kenya will listen to nothing. It doesn't matter that the republican governor of Hawaii had it checked out before the election. The person was obviously paid off or just lying. They stick to fantasy about his trip to Pakistan as further proof. The Internet rumor that American citizens were not allowed in Pakistan is simply that; a rumor. It simply isn't the truth. God himself could come down and tell these people that Obama was born in Hawaii and they simply wouldn't believe it. It has more do with hatred of the President than of logic or fact. He says his investigators are gathering information and have found things we wouldn't believe. Yet he won't say what these things are. Put up or shut up Donald.
The Donald has been known for his very public skirmishes. He doesn't take to criticism all that kindly. How exactly would he behave if a leader from another country make a remark that he considered a slam? Would he publicly go after that person as well? While Trump has a proven record with being a successful businessman, there is very little else that gives him the temperament or experience that is needed to clean up the mess that we are currently in. Anyone that fits into almost every conversation about how smart they are and what great schools they went to doesn't seem to be all that confident that he is that smart. Who is he trying to convince, me or himself?
