Original Starting post for this thread:
He’s not exactly hired.

Donald Trump, the New York real estate mogul who flirted with a 2012 presidential bid, spoke largely off the cuff to a respectful, but somewhat bewildered crowd here at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

On the one hand, Trump spouted what could be seen fairly liberal views, chiding the GOP and conservatives for wanting to cut entitlements and for becoming too conservative.

“Our country is in very, very serious trouble,” Trump said, adding, “Likewise the Republican Party is in serious trouble.” He said if the party wants to “change substantially” Medidcare, Social Security, and Medicaid, “and you think you’re going to win elections, it just really is not going to happen.”

But on the other hand, he also said the party should not jump too quickly on immigration reform because the 11 million undocumented immigrants would vote Democratic.

“Every one of those 11 million” illegal immigrants “will be voting Democratic and you have to be very, very careful. Odds are, it’s not looking so great for Republicans. … You’re on a suicide mission – you’re just not going to get that vote."

At the same time, he said Europeans who want to immigrate to the U.S. and who have children who do well at American universities should be allowed to stay.

Trump also had praise for Mitt Romney, who will speak later. But had one critique.

“If Mitt Romney made one mistake,” Trump said, “he didn’t talk enough about his success. The Republicans and Mitt didn’t speak enough about the great things he did.”

Trump = good laugh or chuckle.

While if you put enough monkies in a room with typewriters, they are bound to turn out something resembling Shakespeare, mitt is just as likely to have done one or two good things. That doesn't excuse the 47% comments and the fact he refuses to accept that if 47% of any population are takers, then the givers fail to give enough to 50% of that 47% so to reduce the 47% to a sustainable 20%.

So now the republicans are left with one bush family member and Chris cristy for a presidental hopeful. They have exiled christy, and we are still tallying up the financial losses of bush II.

So the radical nature of the right has suck their own battleships at the dock while the democrats still have air craft carrier task forces ready to deploy come 2016.

Superstorm Sandy's wind in his hair gave Donald such a whipping that he will have to file another Chapter 11 or 13 to save his toupe and protect his government-secured assets.

This thread falls somewhere between "So what" and "Who cares".

After Superstorm Sandy destroyed the New Jersey Atlantic coastline, Trump needs to stay with the political party that doesn't believe in government intervention for natural disasters.

Those GOPoopers probably still luxuriate and gamble at his underwater casinos and deny that climate change has anthing to do with anything.

Meanwhile, Trump is undoubtedly hoping for his disaster bailout relief.

Any gang that has Donald Trump speaking about politics is in serious trouble.
