    "This country is not very credible ..." says Trump. So then, why would you want to be President (or Secretary of the Treasury, for that matter) of a non-credible country? Only a non-credible person would be qualified to lead a non-credible country.

    Trumps beyond mere dreaming on this one; he's over in an alternate reality.

    That being said, a centrist party that was intent on solutions for the country instead of advantages for its supporters might actually have a chance.

  4. The Elephant In The Room

    This past spring Donald Trump said he would devote $600M of his personal wealth to fund his presidential run. The only problem? Trump DOES NOT HAVE $600M liquid.

    Furthermore, can you see him putting HIS OWN [stolen] money on the line for a bid? The man has never put his own skin in the game and he wouldn't do so for an election where he is bound to come in FOURTH – even with 3 people running.

    Trump would embezzled campaign donations. He would inflate expenses and skim the excess. He'd find a way to charge his PAC $10 a piece for paper clips. If anyone is stupid enough to donate one single dollar to Trump [or any of his shell companies], then P. T Barnum [another carnival barker] was absolutely right – – a sucker IS born every minute.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me three or four times, shame on the people that pay attention to this crap.

    In this time of hyper-polarized politics, the media needs to be a more responsible moderator of the public discourse. In sports the experienced referees have acquired the insight to make good calls, but they also have the maturity to know when to make "non-calls." This is a non-story.

    He's looking for money from the teabaggers who chase carnival barkers around.

    Run, Donald, Run! You'll split the idiot vote, which will effect the GOP field.

    Come on Trump. You know you can't win as an independent. You know running as an independent might siphon off enough votes to put Obama back in the Whitehouse. Is this what you want to do to America??? I didn't think so.
