    Good God! If he becomes President... then again, I think I prefer him to Sarah Palin; he has the capability to form coherent sentences. :p

    I can see the crazy placards already: "OBAMA, YOU'RE FIRED!"

    I wouldn't vote for him, he'd probably want to put a giant "TRUMP" sign on the roof of the white house. :D

    Besides, what does a multi millionaire that files bankruptcy and then goes whining about his $300,000/year $$ budget know about running a country? He'd probably be more than happy to cut social programs left and right and ignore this. XD

    He looks to be better than Palin or Gringrich by miles.

    It's probably a matter of who could do the most damage, somebody extremely stupid or someone extremely acquisitive and nasty.:)

    I hear Mickey is being primed for VP.

    Might as well. It's a Mickey Mouse job anyway.

    Well, at least we wouldn't have to worry about Big Bizness trying to run the country... we'll have handed them the keys and told them to go nuts.

    It'd be almost worth it to watch the religious right froth at their collective mouth at the thought of a thrice-divorced "moneylender" run on the GOP ticket, which been practically their exclusive domain for thirty years...

    Mickey Mouse regularly collects a large number of votes in U.S. presidential elections although considerable effort is expended to prevent the figures becoming public,20,000 is a figure commonly guessed at although I've also heard 50,000.It goes to show at least some people are aware of the charade of the whole thing.

    Only 50k out of 300m though. There's a long way to go...

    Well he'd certainly make a dent in getting us out of national debt - granted, it's still in the trillions. I could live with Trump being Commander in Chief. He certainly has first-hand experience with the economy and understands its flux (although I'm sure he has plenty of advisors/brokers) ... maybe it would be a good thing.

    But the combover has to go. :D

    Also could be a good thing ... or catastrophically bad. :eek:

    I don't think he'd stand a chance, but if he did somehow I'd be scared ********.

    His foreign policy would be disastrous for the country. You should have heard his speal on MSNBC yesterday about how America is "being taken advantage of" by India, China, etc.

    His rant was borderline racist in tone when talking about call center jobs and such.

    Plus, he's nothing but big business, which is scary enough in itself.

    Gingrich has even a more colorful personal life with extramarital affairs and multiple divorces. It would be interesting to see the smear campaigns against each other in the primary. :D

    The GOP candidates are shaping up to cause periods of great hilarity interspersed with moments of sheer terror (every time you think about Palin/Gingrich/Trump as president).

    Not that I agree with racism in any sense, but perhaps he'd push for keeping more jobs in the states. Perhaps that's wishful and optimistic thinking.

    It's not a comb over, it's an as of yet unidentified species engaging in a symbiotic relationship.

    I think he could do some good work on our debt problem. He obviously has very strong skills at business, and the fact that he was bankrupt doesn't damage that fact too much. He still accomplished amazing things. Now, as for his other capabilities in running the country....can't be much worse than anyone else. :rolleyes:

    Well, he's already got the 'whore-yourself-out' part down.
