Trump moving next door to Obama

New York (CNNMoney) - Donald Trump didn't make it to the White House, but his next hotel may not be far away.

The General Services Administration announced an agreement with the Trump Organization Wednesday to redevelop Washington's historic Old Post Office building, just a few blocks from the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue. The deal is still subject to review by Congress.

    "The deal is still subject to review by Congress."

    Hehe...Dems should block it just so we can see Trump light his tinfoil toupee on fire and start screaming "OMG THEY'RE TARGETTING ME!!!"

    Oh, this is going to be good. A high profile Trump construction and renovation project. Let's see how long it will take for Trump to wake up and ask himself, "Am I crazy," and back out of the deal.

    He's sure to blame the Congress or the administration, but the fact of the matter is most Trump projects are managed by a dedicated LLC. Another fact is that most of these Trump LLC's oversee all phases of construction and eventually go bankrupt, which leaves the contractors unpaid. Trump does not want that in the national spotlight. He's not doing this job.

    Guess I struck a nerve earlier:

    Liberal Sense (Or lack thereof)

    The Real Tom Paine – Nobody was talking to you but then again you people don't care what anyone else thinks. That's obvious. Your chit doesn't stink right?

    Sorry junior, but when you post, you are addressing anyone and everyone. If this is the best argument you can muster, then go home if you can't handle a little ribbing. You come on with a deliberately provocative name, ridicule everyone in sight and expect to be treated like you are some wise sage, overflowing with wit and wisom? Please. You've done nothing to earn respect from anyone who disagrees with you because you can't make a point without making it personal. Stay in your echo-chamber if you have nothing worthwhile to contribute.

    No, let him have his project...and let him be reminded every time he exits that people he despised made it possible for him to earn even more brass.

    "Eric Holder goes after months and months of AP phone records from hundreds of reports"

    2 months of records for about 20 phone lines. That's essentially 40 monthly statements. I could review that in less than an afternoon. But hey, you enjoy your hyperbole...lord knows you guys throw the tantrum first and then retro-fit the "evidence" to "justify' it.

    I have been saying it for ages: they reach a conclusion first ( based upon ideology) then work backwards to find "evidence" and finally come up with a thesis. Its the laziest way imagineable to think, but hey, the Right has not had an original thought or idea in decades.

    "IRS admits wrong doing, Democrats claim it is a witch hunt. "

    No, more like "IRS admits there were screw-ups, GOP/Teatrolls immediately begin claiming, as if it is proven fact, that Obama ordered it personally, and that the investigation simply needs to be conducted until the proof is discovered...and, if i's not, then they have proven a cover up." It's assbackwards. You make the conclusions AFTER you conduct the investigation and conduct the evidence to see what it shows. Rejecting 'innocent until proven guilty" is UNAMERICAN haha.

    He can't move into the neighborhood because of his political beliefs (he's a republican). It's a simple as that. Political bias.
