    GOP insiders embrace Trump's Presidential bid

    GOP insiders embrace Trump's presidential bid - Yahoo! News

    Out with Sarah. In with The Donald.....

    GOP celebrities like Sarah Palin aren't getting much buzz. Mainstream candidates like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty aren't getting much traction. It's people once considered highly unlikely to compete seriously for the party's nomination who are creating big stirs in early voting states, a reflection of an unformed and uncertain GOP presidential field.

    GOP activists in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina appear deeply intrigued by, and open to, a run by Donald Trump.....


    Here you go Republicans....here is your man. Run Donald Run.....With his extremist birther views and bad tupee....I think he is the perfect GOP candidate.

    Let me say I am not a Trump fan. But I do find his 'America is Great' rhetoric something that the country needs today after two plus years of the apologist n chief running around bowing to every other country's leader he can.

    The so called 'birther' crap is/was really little more than a headline grabber for him, and on substantive issues, I would love to see Obama, and Trump debate.

    In the end though, I don't think that the GOP would be best served by a Trump nomination. Nor do I think he can do anything but split the vote running as an indy candidate.

    But we do live in interesting times.

    I would like to see the GOP come up with someone better than Donald Trump. I'm not exactly jazzed at the idea of another 4 years of Obama.

    Poor nation esteem. Any one, even a birther or a nutter, who says we're GRRREeaat!!!! is a winner.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I would liek to see a valid, reasonable alternative. We need better people running overall. Let's try to make it a choice betwen better people and not the least bad. That would be a great change, real change.

    To be honest, I'm kind of sick of politicians utilizing patriotism to get votes or support. We had plenty of that post-9/11. To me, patriotism is much more than making empty statements like "America is great" or buying a bunch of flags from Walmart.

    And whom would be that "valid" or "reasonable" candidate on the GOP side for you Joe?

    Yes, we can't take much more of people being proud or their country can we?

    Where did I say that? You and I both know that it has absolutely zilch to do with being proud of one's country. It's a political strategy. I find that disgusting. Patriotism is better than that. I would criticize democrats for doing the same thing.

    Do you believe that America is a great nation?
