Trump 2016!
Why? He is traveling around the country telling everyone how awesome he is and has crowds of people feeding his ego? Why in the world would Trump NOT love all that attention. Not to mention he gets to be on TV nearly every night telling millions of viewers how awesome he is.

Trump is a blank screen that his supporters are projecting their perfect candidate onto, just like supporters of Obama did. Unfortunately, Trump supporters are in for the same disappointment and frustration that Obama supporters faced when Obama took office and failed at all the things he promised and the things he did do resulted in disaster.
good post. I think you nailed it.

Live and Learn, America.


You think your boys are dying overseas now fighting a pointless war, wait until Trump gets some Power. We will have WWIII most likely.
People just have imaginations.


He wouldn't be so successful if he were a loose cannon.

I disagree. He wants the power and adoration. You see how he lights up when discussing the huge crowd numbers that com to see him and when someone complements him? His ego needs this.

The thing is, besides Hillary, Trump is the best known candidate out there. What don't you know about the man? People like him. The media loves him. They bash him, but one on one he's smooth and natural and they can't get enough of him. I wish Rubio had the kind of access Trump gets.

Nobody's getting fooled by Trump, that's part of his success, and why negative advertising by Cruz will be a big waste of money.

Do you want him to be a recluse, a wallflower?


You have to have somewhat of an ego to run for office, it goes with the territory. However, we don't accuse politicians of being loose cannons. Politicians all have big egos, however, we overlook it with them and not Trump.


Trump is being dissected by the media to take attention away from the problems in this country caused by politicians, which is why he is running specifically to try and fix. That's why we all talk about his potty mouth, his ego, his multiple affairs and not the national debt, backdoor immigration, sky rocketing cost of education, medical care, and cost of living.

What candidate doesnt light up when people show up in huge numbers to see them?

ANY candidate would have to have some type of ego in order to run in the first place.

I'm still waiting to hear who it is all you anti-Trumps who have posted in this thread support for president. Not only that, tell us why your candidate is is perfect and without flaws.

To the OP. How do Hillary supporters not see her for what and who she is?
Bernie supporters. What makes Bernie qualified to be President? Never had a real job, was never successful at anything other than politics and even then just barely.
I am not voting for Trump. That said he knows more about business than any other candidate. He also has an intimate knowledge of how politicians really work. He has bought enough of them after all. Dealing with foreign nations. Evidently he can do that as well.
Hillary's success as SS is not at all impressive. Some say Trump is a liar. I agree he lies. Compared to Hillary Trump is a choir boy.
If the vote came down between Trump or Hillary? Trump would get mine.
Trump or Bernie? Trump again. Bernie excels at spending other peoples money and seems to have very little ability to manage his own. He is an Idealist, not a bad person. The nation needs someone who understands business and how to manage money.

Not true. He loves the attention and the power. He has nothing to lose since this is great publicity for him.

Funny, I wonder how many of his supporters really read "Art of the Deal." He admits freely that the goal is to appeal to a person's fantasies. He keeps saying he's a self-made billionaire, but the facts and figures prove that's not totally true.

Sure, he did not blow his inheritance and increased his wealth, but he claimed bankruptcy 4 times. The same man who claims his undeniable love for the Bible, God and family has spent much of his life being a wealthy playboy. He cheated on his first wife, married his mistress and then married a supermodel many years younger than he. So of course people want to be like Donald Trump. That doesn't mean he will turn their pumpkins into shiny carriages.
