The Donald For President?

Posted 19 April 2011 - 09:19 AM

So not like he has a snowballs chance in hell (but stranger things have happened, so who knows?!) but would Donald Trump be one of those good for the country kind of presidents, or you think it'd just be to realign things enough for his businesses to continue to succeed?!

Everyone is pretty much blowing him off, but he has built quite a successful empire, and he aint afraid to fire some bitches. So what's the deal... The Donald in 2012?!

We really won't know until the time comes.


People said Obama would do us loads of good, and now some of those people are saying they where mistaken.

I don't really have an opinion (that matters) on the subject, since I'm not old enough to vote, but I like to know what we're getting ourselves into in the future since I will be old enough soon.

He is woefully under prepared for world politics. Sure international business is similar to politics, but foreign policy is a whole new ball game that cannot be solved in sound bites or a reality tv show.

He doesn't have the balls to stand for President.

Agreed, I think balls are the one thing you couldn't accuse him of being short of.

Trump is doing pretty well in the polls for not being a politician.

I honestly think he should put Ivanka in charge of the Fed or Treasury. She's a strong, intelligent woman who can get things done without being overly confrontational or political. And she has a degree in economics along with a lot of international business experience, so she's more conversant than a lot of politicians who blow hot air. If he did that, I would consider voting for him.

Especially if Meat Loaf flips out at him like he did at Gary Busey the other week.

Nah, I don't have much respect for the guy really. He lectures people as if he started from nothing and built this empire. Let it be known that his DAD built the beginnings of an empire and when Donald was of age, his dad just gave him his first building.

Since that time he has lost a fortune as much as he has gained one. I guess right now he is only a fraction of what he use to be worth.

No better than a normal politician I guess, but still a lamer. ;)

He might make a good mail czar, though. :P

If you read his interviews, he's pretty much ridiculous.

Quote

" I'd do one thing. Either I'd go in and take the oil or I don't go in at all"

"In the old days, when you have a war and you win, that nation is yours."

Not somebody I want in a president, although I guess his honesty in policy is refreshing.

A big part of me is with you on that sentiment.

And most likely for the same reason.

I was going to chime in with this. He's released many books, & I believe he tanked his business (in the early 90's?) after writing one of them! So he didn't build an empire...

That being said, I may vote for him, depending on what party he's running & who's running for Libertarian in 2012.

I still don't know where I stand with him on a multitude of issues and won't make up my mind on that until we get some good heated debates and then fact check those.

That is refreshing. We're the only nation on the planet that'll take down a country and spend our blood and treasure building it back up. And people are ungrateful. Blows my fucking mind.
