    What's racist is the left's obsession with the color of the man's skin.

I guess thats just how it works though, some people are so convinced of a conspiracy, its completely impossible to change their mind. Kind of like the September 11th conspiracy...
    The long form he released has his doctor and hospital. As far as I know MOST people are satisfied now. All they wanted was the long form, and after dithering around for over 2 yrs he finally showed it.

    No matter what you may think of Trump no one can deny (honestly anyways) that the man is a good businessman. Otherwise he wouldn't be so stinking rich. Especially when you consider that the money he has wasn't inherited. Now think about what that could mean for our economy. The man obviously knows how to make a budget that isn't based on spend spend spend.

    Besides, for the last 100+ years the POTUS seat has gone to politicians/lawyers, and look how that has turned out. At least with Trump we have years of coverage and know him compared to Obama and Palin who hardly anyone knew of post last presidential election season.

    Where is the Hell No Answer? Of course he is bad for them and esp now. It is funny to me. Trump now knows you do not mess with straight up G's as they will bring you down one way or another

    He's great business man, but so is Herman Cain and Romney for that matter. That's ALL Trump has going for him as far as I'm concerned.

    Well, everyone is complaining about the economy and all. Who better to fix it than someone with some buisness know how? Personally I've thought for years now that it would be good to have a POTUS that was a businessman/woman. Sure they'd still lie cheat and steal thier way through things but at least a good one would know more than a passing understanding of economics. I've yet to see a president in my life time that understood the simple fact that spending more than what you're getting in is not sustainable.

    Also, for whatever its worth...Cain and Romney are not near as rich as Trump. And they're politicians. We need something new that hasn't been tried before. I'd say this is it.

    Trump has been through multiple bankruptcies, and has never managed any part of government. He seperates himself from his corporations, pays himself ridiculous salaries, and then runs them into the dirt.

    if you want someone with actual proven experience at turning around a government that is running a structural deficit - and turning it into a surplus - then you want Governor Daniels. Not Bozo the Clown.

    yup. Obama would have been smart (and happy) to let Trump continue to wage the equivalent of a suicide bomber campaign within the Republican party - ironically, the fact that he was willing to sit back and do so began to convince people that Trump was on to something, and he had to shut Trump down as his strategy worked a little too well.

    There's even been the theory that Obama is "pumping up" Trump in order to have an easier go at winning reelection in 2012, similar to how Harry Reid "pumped up" Sharron Angle to avoid facing Sue Lowden.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
