This was a sales pitch, pure and simple. I can easily see where some Republicans would find the Donald quite appealing. He is a straight talker, has a reputation (fair or unfair) as a successful businessman and seems pretty ready to get tough with America's adversaries.
I have met Trump in person several times. For a wealthy man with celebrity, he does not have a pretentious bone in his body. A very rare characteristic when among America's movers and shakers. That being said, I don't think I will be voting for the Donald anytime soon.
For starters, America has been transformed into the land of Crony Capitalism. Because of this, we need a true patriot to undo that mess or we risk electing a man who would know how to take complete advantage of the situation. I hear a lot of patriotic talk from the Donald, but is it really true? I am not too sure. I say this because of his new declaration that he is Pro-Life.
A quick Google search reveals that the Donald said in his own book he was Pro-Choice. If Donald Trump can try to fake an issue like abortion, I don't have a lot of faith when it comes to his patriotism or anything else. The decision the nation makes in 2012 will be as serious as a heart attack. There is no time to waste on posers or opportunists. Trumps's 11th hour conversion to Pro-life reeks of opportunism. Sorry Donald, keep on moving.
