For conservatives and libertarians, President Trump would be an entertaining disappointment
I get the attraction to a Trump candidacy. He is Not Boring. It would be priceless to see him tell Obama that he's fired. But then what? Trump seems like a successful business leader (as long as you overlook the bankruptcies). He seems like the kind of leader who would not only care about America's swiftly deteriorating position in the world, he would do something about it.
But what specifically would he do about it? ABC broke the story over the weekend that the Donald hasn't bothered to vote in a primary in 20 years. Ok, not the biggest of deals -- he appears to have voted in every general election over the past few decades, except in 2002 for whatever reason. Trump's daily headline today has him saying he is a "very conservative person." Is he?
Trump says a lot of things, to the point that he comes across as being in love with talking. But what he says isn't always what you'd call wise.
"Iowa is very, very important to me," he said. "I love what Iowa represents. It represents to me a work ethic that a lot of other places don't have...."
Such as? Name the states that lack a work ethic, Mr. Trump. And:
As he continues to mull a presidential bid, or say he is mulling a presidential bid, business mogul Donald Trump is lamenting the fact President Obama appears to have locked up the black vote. "I have a great relationship with the blacks," Trump told Albany's Talk Radio 1300 Thursday. "I've always had a great relationship with the blacks."
As Jimmy Kimmel put it the day that quote broke, "Not anymore."
