Video: Donald Trump at CPAC

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.

I am not going to listen to the whole thing since I saw it live, but I do wonder if you can hear the booing in it?

It was funny, at least to me. I wouldn't support him, but he will make it interesting.

The Paulities were out in force and they didn't take kindly to his Ron Paul bashing.

Oh, in case you were going to wait around on Saturday night for the straw poll results. Paul wins. No way he won't.

I especially like how they called Cheney and Rumsfeld war criminals. It was an interesting day.

Oh, and I met Herman Cain this morning. I am smitten.

Yes, you can hear some of the booing, especially about Ron Paul.

Agreed, a straight talker like him in the race will make things very interesting.

I read the Paulites already bagged the Straw Poll. What was up with the Rumsfeld Cheney bashing? That is a good way to make Trumps words true, LOL.

You met the Hermanator? Totally jealous! BTW, if you take any pics don't forget to share with your friends :-D

I do not appreciate Mr. Trump--he is phony.

always wondered about "the D" - thanks for your post... the part about being unpretentious and unvarnished was particularly revelationary to me

point about the transformation of america to the land of "crony capitalism", aka socialism for the rich, is just too prescient
