The Would Be Power broker
Through with running for President, Donald Trump has now decided to be what we all knew he was in the first place...a carnival barker....or rather a power broker, a king maker.
With the cast of clowns that is practically every Republican nominee, I wish him luck. Well actually..No I don't...
Donald Trump has invited all the Republican presidential candidates to a debate. Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman promptly and properly turned down the offer.
In contrast, Newt Gingrich, hoping for a Trump endorsement, made a pilgrimage to the " Donald".
One must understand from the door that this is not some gracious offer by Donald Trump to conduct a a fair responsible debate. This is just another self-serving promotion by Donald Trump, for who else?, Donald Trump, to put none other than, drum roll please.. Donald Trump into the spotlight as kingmaker and power broker.
In Response to the Donald's Offer Ron Paul’s campaign chairman said “The selection of a reality television personality to host a presidential debate that voters nationwide will be watching is beneath the office of the Presidency and flies in the face of that office’s history and dignity." I couldn't have said it better myself. My thoughts exactly.
I feel that Donald Trump’s participation as moderator will distract from questions and answers concerning important issues such as the national economy, crushing federal government debt, the role of the federal government, foreign policy, and the like. To be sure, Donald Trump’s participation will contribute to an unwanted circus-like atmosphere”.
Then again..it's not like these guys were actually going to talk about that stuff in the first place.
Here's something to think about....Ron Paul and John Huntsman are the only candidates with enough common sense to see what the proposal by Donald Trump is really all about, and promptly declined his offer.
Also note that both Ron Paul and John Huntsman, unlike the other Republican candidates are the only ones to put forth serious economic proposals. Moreover, neither is likely to start another major war either....
So...there you have it....Another circus production by the P.T. Barnum of Economics and Politics himself...Enjoy...I won't be watching that circus.
