BFS EnthusiastWhat's the likelihood of this happening? I hope he does not even pass the primaries, that guy is more corrupt than most corrupt corporate executives in movies. What do you all see happening in regards to this?
The chance is negative. Trump will probably dump it once he stops having something to promote.
Mentorunfortunately I don't think the Republicans are that dumb.
complete noobWhoever wins, we lose?
MentorNot really, if they field Mc Cain circa his moderate days it might actually not be a curb stomp battle.
I Am The WalrusIt's actually being said to be dead now (due to Bin Laden's death and Trump actually congratulating the President). But then again, who knows?

I'm thinking that the GOP is using Trump as a way to weed out and/or identify the crazies in their party, or that Trump seriously believes that attempting to run for the presidency will help boost his image in some way or another (it likely won't). Because frankly even though I dislike Obama, I'd rather choose Obama again anyday rather than Trump, who isn't even that effective of a businessman to begin with.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.
I'd imagine Trump is more of a media-friendly candidate the actual party wants nothing to do with but has too much money to quietly ignore.
Inexplicable StudentI genuinely like America and its people, but I think my respect for the States would dip significantly if Trump was elected.
Is there an office of the National Dog Catcher?
Reason and MadnessIt all seems like more of a publicity stunt than anything else, to me.
Nil, a new sci-fi/horror story that you should read and review! (Updated 4/something) ''The gate opens.
I will EXTERMINATE your unhappiness!I think Trump would make a great Secretary of the newly created Department of Reality TV, but as President? His credentials are laughable.
Would Trump be any worse (either as a candidate or president) than Palin? For that matter, who are the serious moderate GOP contenders for 2012? The only one that comes to mind is Romney, and I'm pretty certain he'll be politically bludgeoned to death in the primaries for Romney-care. I too agree that this is all a huge pub stunt for Trump. While the birther issue is mostly squashed, I wonder if he could still screw over the GOP by running as an Independent in 2012.
He knows how to file bankruptcy really well.
WHAT IS GOING ON?!

Playing tricks on EVIL!I like all the attention Donald Trump keeps attracting; the more time he's in the limelight, the more independent voters will recognize how pathetic the GOP has become and abandon them in droves. —R.J.
I will EXTERMINATE your unhappiness!That's not the point; the HCR bill that Obama got passed was copied wholesale from the Republicans' counteroffer against Clinton's attempt to privatize it when he was in office. The anger at the plan is because the Republicans cannot afford politically to allow the Dems to have a victory in this regard. It's pure ideological rage. Also, apparently, a lot of U.S. citizens continue to hold an abiding hatred of poor people and wish to see them suffer unnecessarily. On topic, isn't Trump on record as wishing to dismantle entitlements more or less completely?

I see what you mean, but TBH, I've never really understood this argument. If Romney is "forcing" something on his state according to a particular POV, who is to say he wouldn't "force" something on the nation as a whole? For that matter, assuming one considers it as such, why is it okay to enforce a "Socialistic" program at the state level as opposed to the Federal level?

NOT THE BEES
Would Trump be any worse (either as a candidate or president) than Palin?Yes. Palin was an idiot. Trump strikes me as more maliciously corrupt.
GristknifeI don't know why I bothered registering as an independent if these are going to be my options. What the Hell GOP? Do you want me to vote for Obama?

Oh — I certainly understand the concept. I just don't understand why it makes sense in the context of selecting a political candidate. I would think that behavior at the state level for a governor would be reflected at the Federal level when he becomes president. Then again, I suppose if Romney felt he was ruling to the "left" solely because he representing a den of Commies and Socialists like Massachusetts, he would be given license to rule differently at the national level. I can see either one making for a worse Commander-in-chief.
