    The Trump show is just hilarious.. hearing which GOP candidates will be appearing with Trump in the upcoming "debate". Some have already declined.... Huntsman, Paul and now Mitt Romney will not be appearing.

    Trump was quick to denounce the Romney snub and slammed others like
    good old Carl Rove for his criticism. Pretty funny.

    Trump using them to promote his massive ego.

    And Gingrich is polling at 37% nationally. These people are toast.

    Enjoy things now. This is democracy in action. The conflicts among the Republicans are a bit of rough and tumble. Different opinions and tactics. A few days ago, several candidates were individually questioned by Attorney Generals from three states on constitutional issues. The whole campaign is a mixture of some activities a la the Donald, as well as very thoughtful discussions. What a contrast to your liberal media fawning over Obama with softball questions.

    Think what you will of Trump, but his criticism of Obama is right on the money. Someone who came in with an opportunity to be a uniter, to do things differently, to be a positive force, has turned out to be a negative influence, petty, and divisive. And don't try and insult anyone's intelligence by saying it was the Republicans' fault. For the first two years, he and his compadres could do what they wanted, as evidenced by the passage of the health law.

    After the candidate is chosen, all the confusion you are laughing about will become a consistent focus on their vision versus that of Obama. My time and others will become more limited on RJ as I and others will focus on helping a grass roots effort to rid this country of the Obama malignancy and his ideology for years to come.

    He's a blowhard nutcase (a half a step above the Palin woman). The last thing Obama has been is divisive... if anything he has gone a long way... overboard trying to compromise with the right. Compared to the Grinch, Obama looks
    like an amazing "polished" individual... I'm sure the voters will concur.

    You deny Obama has been divisive? Incredible, and totally wrong. All he does is try and find people to blame. How one can be so blind.

    John, calm down and be reasonable. Part of intelligent assessment is flexibility.
    I'm hardly blind, I'm very atuned. Don't criticize me, use facts to bolster your claims, not personal criticisms. I'm a friend, not an enemy, we just have differing views.

    Not intending to attack. Just very surprised. I can understand how someone might prefer vanilla to strawberry ice cream, but it is really hard understanding how someone would enjoy gargling razor blades.

    Perhaps this will put to rest whether it's the liberals who attack people and are unhinged.

    The Republicans are eating their own. Romney is quickly becoming an also-ran to Newt Gringrich, who will be beaten so badly by Obama, it will be a thing of beauty.

    Perhaps conservatives have forgotten just how much the Republican Party hated Gingrich, but the party bosses haven't and neither have Democrats.

    There are some interesting dynamics. Some Republicans have hated Gingrich, but that could make him popular with the people who could see him as someone bucking the establishment. The thing of beauty will see how thin-skinned Obama will react to cutting remarks. He never could handle any adversity. I am really expecting to enjoy his political demise and relegation to the American Siberia.

    Gingrich is not part of the establishment?

    The whole Trump "debate" is a farce, a way for Trump to promote himself. It is a sad example of how politics in this country is becoming a part of show business.

    You think a biracial man who spent his childhood in Indonesia and then went on to become editor of the Harvard Law review and now president can't handle adversity? icon_lol.gif

    The Republicans also seem to have forgotten the "inevitability" of Hillary Clinton and how hard fought the 2008 Democratic primary was...

    Yes, I think he can't handle adversity. I think he was helped along into Columbia, then Harvard, having started out prior as an average student. Being selected for the Harvard Law Review is based on a writing exercise, and I have no doubt he BSed his way with some professors were were into his left wing viewpoints and personal history. Being editor is by election, and I'm sure he charmed his way there just as he charmed many weak minded with hope and change.

    Take away his script and he falls apart. I think he is intellectually quite average who has been helped along by a fawning media.

    I seriously doubt that New Gingrich will end up the nominee -- in fact, I suspect even HE knows it. However, Newt is a smart man. He knows exactly what he is doing. The nominee will likely be Mitt Romney -- the one the Dems fear the most, as well as the one most likely to beat Obama

    Agreed -- which is why I am glad my 3 favorite Candidates (Huntsman, Romney, and Paul) have all declined the invitation to be in the Trump debate.

    Huntsman also declined to be on Huckabee's show that involved being questioned by Attorneys General from 3 states on Constitutional issues. Huckabee was not involved in the questioning - it was only on his show. Reason given was he wanted to focus on New Hampshire, but that night he was from what I read in North Carolina, so his excuse seems to be thin. The questions were excellent, and Huntsman stayed away. Given his low percentage in all the polls, it is strange that he avoids serious venues as well.

    What should Republicans be embarrassed about? We have at least three VERY intelligent, experienced, very capable candidates in the game, one of which will likely be the candidate, not to mention a very real challenge to Obama being re-elected. I have no idea who I will be voting for at this point -- may even end up being Obama -- but I would be very proud to have Huntsman, Romney, maybe even Gingrich as our President if it turned out that way. So, please elaborate, what you think Republicans have to be embarrassed about?

    None of whom are going to get the nomination, so what really is your point? If you want me to start to name politicians the Dems should be embarrassed about I can play that game too, but what really is the point of that? You can put money on the fact that who ever emerges as the GOP nominee will be someone the GOP will be anything but embarrassed about.
