    Donald Trump slams Jeb Bush, hints at independent bid

    Donald Trump slams Jeb Bush, hints at independent bid - LA Times

    In an interview with the Post on Thursday and later in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Trump issued a thinly veiled threat that he could run as an independent candidate and pointedly would not commit to supporting the GOP ticket should he fail to win the nomination.

    “I would have to see who the nominee is," he said.
    <snip>
    Trump is widely unpopular, with large majorities of Democrats and Republicans viewing him unfavorably, according to recent polls, but he also has an ardent following, and his comments about Mexican immigrants have clearly touched a nerve with some GOP voters.

    this reminds me of a situation........


    That worked out well for the GOP, didn't it?


    Who could be his "Stockdale" ? Ventura? Nugent? maybe Gene Simmons?

    I know, he could select them on the next season of "The Apprentice" ?

    If the Republican party won't give him the nomination, he'll fire it.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    Trump will keep it interesting for a little longer, his continued comments will get plenty of coverage, but even as an Independent his chances are not so good.

    I keep waiting for him to dig in on the Black community next, ensure he upsets several minorities before it is all said and done.

    Or attempt to sue it.

    And this reminds me of Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan in the 2000 Presidential election, both of whom siphoned away votes from Al Gore in Florida, some on purpose in the case of Nader and some by mistake in the case of ditzy Palm Beachers who thought a vote for Buchanan was a vote for Gore.

    And since Donald Trump is good buds with Hillary and Bill, personally inviting them both to his most recent wedding, and since The Donald has lavished both of them with his money in support of her political ambitions and Bill's vanity projects, I suspect the little man will be linked to the Clintons far more than the GOP in the coming months.

    a 3rd party candidate in an election (presumed) to be between Bush and Clinton, reminds you of Gore/Bush and not of an actually existing election between Clinton/Bush. ?

    Interesting.


    ps, I know you'll ignore it "the source"
    but this is a nice concise summary of why you're wrong on the analysis

    You're right, I will ignore attempts to funnel me off to Daily Kos. No surprise there.
