      I’ve been watching that close, I have a $10 bet with my uncle that Bernie isn’t a real candidate. He hasn’t filed yet and that deadline is ticking. I was certain Bernie was running block for Hillary to swallow the grassroots liberals, looks like that is the case. Carson is probably the same for Bush.

        I have a bet going that Trump isn’t a real candidate — that he’ll win the Repub nomination, then lose to Hitlery within the margin of theft and quietly cash his big, fat check from the Clinton Foundation. Who else could offer Trump a sum large enough to pique his interest?

              He’s a great actor…a really great actor. A beautiful actor. Maybe the best actor who has ever ran for president, and he wants to make America Great Again, which is COMPLETELY different from Hope and Change… Hope and Change is totally and completely different from Make America Great Again. Trump’s slogan is great. It’s beautiful. It’s so beautiful, that it’s just great. It’s beautiful.

              Platitudes for the unthinking masses, and the masses are slurping it up just like they did eight years ago. That they’re in the other wing of our single, big government party, doesn’t surprise me in the least.

              One way you can tell Donald Trump is a good man is by how much the creepies and the liars hate him. In a way, the FrozenPatriots of the world serve a purpose.

            Either way, Trump isn’t wasting his time. If you’re right, and he’s genuine, he’ll be remembered for it. If I’m right, and he’s a Manchurian Candidate, he’ll CERTAINLY be remembered for it. Both bring him fame and riches.

            I hope I’m wrong and that Trump is genuine. We shall see who the fool is. If I’m wrong, I’m out twenty bucks. If you’re wrong, man’s freedom will be lost for generations. Who is waging the greater bet?

              Trump’s Achilles’s heel is he needs praise.

              That is the American electorate’s ace in the hole.

              Your argument is not based on reason or past performance.

              Frankly, $20 bucks isn’t worth my time.

              I am a handicapper. I never waste my money on a sure thing. I’d rather just watch the race and let the favorite win.

              I only bother to invest when I have a live long shot. Where I can make honest excuses for a troubled trip in the past performances.

                Past performance?

                Until a few years ago, the majority of Trump’s political contributions went to democrats.

                During the 2007 Democratic presidential primary, Donald Trump spoke favorably of Hillary Clinton, telling Wolf Blitzer that he thought she would win the nomination “rather easily.”

                “I know her very well,” Trump said. “She’s very talented. And she has a husband that I also like very much. I think she’s going to get the nomination rather easily.”

                Trump added later in the interview that he thinks Hillary Clinton is “very, very capable.”

                Trump was also asked about Clinton’s 2007 health care proposal, at the center of which was an “individual mandate” similar to the one President Obama would later include in his plan.

                “I think it was very good. I think she came out with an idea. It’s a very, very complex set of things going on right now in terms of healthcare. But she came out with an idea, it sounds like a pretty good idea, and a lot of people like it and embraced it. And she learned a lot from her previous encounter,” Trump said.

                Trump, who announced Tuesday he was running for the Republican presidential nomination, has also given large sums of money to the Clinton Foundation. His name is listed on the Clinton Foundation’s website as having donated between $100,000 and $250,000.

                As noted by Bloomberg Politics, Hillary Clinton also had a front row seat at Trump’s 2005 wedding and Bill, unable to go to wedding, attended a black-tie reception at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

                Trump and his son Donald Jr. also donated to Clinton’s campaigns in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007.

                  No you’re not. You’re a repulsive liar, FrozenPatriot , who plagiarized his source from far left wing click bait sewer “buzzfeed.” You don’t reveal your source, and you make it like was your original content.

                  http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/trump-hearts-hillary#.rsqrjDyDN

                  There’s nothing in the buzzfeed piece you plagiarized that could be considered “proof” of anything, other than liberal journalists are liars, just like you, At the same time, you accuse others of being liberals and whine about “honest conversation.” as you engage in willful deception.

                  I don;t know if you’re a Cruztard, a Hillarytard, or a Bernietard and I don’t care.
                  REPULSIVE LIAR is a perfect description for a compulsively dishonest, functionally retarded, stupid anti-trump like you.

                  You should be banned immediate for plagiarism. Barring that, people should not take a word you say seriously, should not treat you with good faith as you don’t deserve, it, and treat you with the scorn and derision that a repulsive liar like you deserves. .

                  Wow, that’s a pretty emotional response… Apparently folks around here don’t like their emotional Hope for Change bubble pricked.

                  One of the “tards” I’m NOT is a PoliticsCanFixWhatsComingTard — which makes me skeptical of anyone who gives of their time, fortune, dignity, and soul in order to achieve the crown of King of USA (which it’s essentially become…). Not being a PoliticsCanFixWhatsComingTard also apparently makes me and the facts which I present unwelcome here. Again, it appears folks around here don’t like their emotional Hope for Change bubble pricked.

                  I suppose that if I had to pick a candidate, it’d likely be SMOD or Cthulu, because ALL of the rest of them are just that bad.

                  People like you serve a purpose, FrozenPlagiarist . Given no other evidence, one can’t help but see that Donald Trump is a good man – given how much stupid, liars like you hate him.

                  Keep going – you’re doing great! You’re HELPING Donald Trump, AND you’re too stupid to even realize that. You’re PERFECT, FrozenPlagiarist! You make it obvious just how stupid and dishonest AntiTrump-Tards like you really are!

    My dear friends at CTH: so today, I really got depressed about upcoming executive actions and Hill. C. (made a mistake to check out BB). So, I took out a gift certificate I received from my work colleagues and totally, selfishly bought a Coach purse and a wallet…for me. Forgive me, I felt a little better. Doing this reminded me of better times. My husband is now singing as I write this (no kidding): “It’s your thing, do what you want to do.” And “The man comes around” by Johnny Cash…don’t know for sure what that song is about, but he says it’s time for “Come to Jesus meeting!” All I got to say: Trump 2016!!!!

    Why is Cruz sealing up his Birth information.
    Cruz Birther Issue – Obama All Over Again!
    January 5, 2016 Dianne Marshall
    “At present, all FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests filed in search of any U.S. citizenship documents to confirm the true official U.S. citizenship status of Ted Cruz have been denied access. All citizenship records for Ted Cruz are sealed unless and until Ted Cruz agrees to allow any such records to be released by either U.S. or Canadian agencies.
    As a result, there remains no authentic evidence to support the claims that Ted Cruz is either a “natural born” or “naturalized” citizen of the United States.”

      It comes from a dubious source, but without digging deeper (because I don’t care enough), I’d say it is probably true. Trump in 2012, when this tweet allegedly occurred, was a business operator. His job was to get things done so his can support his family, his investors and his employees. He has an obligation to be nice to people. Even the president. Your niece wouldn’t want our next president to divide people would she?

      Perhaps you could ask your niece about Cruz’s wife’s background for me. And when you have her undivided attention, ask her about the PAC supporting Teddy. If you would read a bit here you would know how to handle her.

      If you can get her to listen, you might as well inform her BookFace is for losers.
