Is Donald Trump a Spoiler?

He's certainly making the Republican primary interesting. But does he really stand for anything? Why did he talk with Bill and Hillary before entering the race? Does he have any solid principles or is he just taking some positions that will appeal to the grass roots Republicans and plans to run a third party candidacy which will ensure a Democratic victory?

Frankly, I'm not sure what to thing. How about you?

Trump is only a lightning rod for the distaste and anger conservative's have with the mainstream GOP ruling class like Roe, Jeb, Boehner and McConnell. He barks and the crowd likes the barking.

I've sorta given up on national politics and believe only God's intervention will save this country and culture. Prayer and reparation are all I feel I have in my arsenal. People will disappoint and betray but God will never do so.

I did enjoy Carly Fiorina. She barks like Trump but she is smart and savvy where he is a buffoon. Here answers to Jake Tapper on Hilary's position on abortion was awesome. Are they more than sound bites? Who knows. She lists her religion as Episcopalian. All the RC's in national politic's are CINO's or worse.

“’It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital.’ That’s Hillary Clinton’s position,” Fiorina said.

“It’s Hillary Clinton’s position that a 13-year-old girl needs her mother’s permission to go to a tanning salon or get a tattoo, but not to get an abortion.

“It’s Hillary Clinton’s position that women would not be permitted to look at an ultrasound before an abortion, and yet people are trying to harvest body parts and can use an ultrasound to make sure those body parts are preserved so they can be sold.

What do you think of her?

I suspect he's a Hillary,/Bubba plant. He's an empty suit with a big mouth!

I could see a rather entertaining movie about a filthy rich guy who runs for president out of boredom, says whatever the heck comes to mind on the campaign trail, and ends up accidentally winning. Oh, wait - that's not a movie, that's the Donald's 2016 campaign strategy. And it could even work!

I am not sure what to think - my guess is he doesn't really care about winning, just wants to run for the ego trip. If that is correct, then his campaign has been a massive success.

As my husband always says," Just ask the people at HP what Fiorina did to their corporation and their jobs.She made Communist China very happy"

As far as Trump is concerned .an outspoken enemy of the media will never get to run.
