  •  Trump's performance in the polls (5+ / 0-)

    says some very very bad things about the Republican Party, as did Fred Thompson's. Trump is the uber-Fred Thompson, and shows that the GOP is hurtling in the wrong direction.

    He has all Fred Thompson's bad assets , mainly an inability to productively mingle with the unwashed masses, who may not show you the sort of respect you're ridiculously used to. He has none of Fred Thompson's better assets, like a certain innate dignity and at least a facade of seriousness (Senator from 1994 to 2003).

    All that said, though Trump could never beat Barack Obama in an election, Presidential elections in this country are close. Trump could easily get 48%+ of the vote, though he would be killed in the Electoral College numbers. He would win some states, and that doesn't say bad things about the Republican Party, it says bad things about the United States of America.

    And the prospect of being able to say he got 48% of the vote, and his use of that in future business dealings of the sort BBB describes here, will be WHY he runs, IF he runs.

    Mitt Romney will never get the nomination and it isn't because of his dalliance into health care reform. It's because he's a Mormon. The Great State of Utah is fixing to get its eyes opened in 2012.

    It rubs the loofah on its skin or else it gets the falafel again.
