Trump's won't run in 2012

ABC News: After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.
I want to personally thank the millions of Americans who have joined the various Trump grassroots movements and written me letters and e-mails encouraging me to run. My gratitude for your faith and trust in me could never be expressed properly in words. So, I make you this promise: that I will continue to voice my opinions loudly and help to shape our politician’s thoughts. My ability to bring important economic and foreign policy issues to the forefront of the national dialogue is perhaps my greatest asset and one of the most valuable services I can provide to this country. I will continue to push our President and the country’s policy makers to address the dire challenges arising from our unsustainable debt structure and increasing lack of global competitiveness. Issues, including getting tough on China and other countries that are methodically and systematically taking advantage of the United States, were seldom mentioned before I brought them to the forefront of the country’s conversation. They are now being debated vigorously. I will also continue to push for job creation, an initiative that should be this country’s top priority and something that I know a lot about. I will not shy away from expressing the opinions that so many of you share yet don’t have a medium through which to articulate.
I look forward to supporting the candidate who is the most qualified to help us tackle our country’s most important issues and am hopeful that, when this person emerges, he or she will have the courage to take on the challenges of the Office and be the agent of change that this country so desperately needs.
Thank you and God Bless America! 
Donald J. Trump

I certainly hope none of you dear readers were surprised by this news. Donald Trump was a poser who was using the Republican primary season as a vehicle to push his brand. He has done it before and I suspect he will do it again.

Trump simply isn't a serious person. On one hand he went around saying that the nation is in dire straights and he is the only guy to right the ship. Yet, he backs out of saving the nation for Obama's agenda for what, another season of Celebrity Apprentice? Give me a break.

For any Republican who was fooled by the Donald, my advice to you is to buckle down and start doing some serious homework on the potential GOP candidates. Otherwise you will be take by yet another poser *COUGH*Gingrich*COUGH*

I am happy to see Trump leave; with a little luck that will give Ron Paul a bit of a boost. I wonder, though, if it was not for his private life, but future public life that he did this? Maybe he doesn't want to run against an incumbent, but wanted to get his name out there early to make think for next time? No matter our opinions of the man, I do think he is very shrewd.
