Trump acknowledged that he probably needs to act more presidential. The real estate mogul told “Fox News Sunday,” ‘‘I think I’ll be very presidential at the appropriate time. Right now, I’m fighting for my life.”

Isn't this really just another lie? Trump is an embarrassing crude unstable narcissist. Trump not fighting for his life and the needs to act more presidential line is pure nonsense. Trump acting Presidential is like a hog using a wrist watch.

I want to know when either Hillary or Bernie is going to take control of the Democratic race.

Serrano: I want to know when either Hillary or Bernie is going to take control of the Democratic race.

Check back March 2, the day after Super Tuesday 2016.

My guess is that Hillary learned a lot from 2008 and is going to lock things down. Bernie lacks experience in that respect.

You know if Hillary were to win the DNC nomination, and the Republicans had put up a viable candidate, voting for the GOP would have been a definite consideration, due to distrust of Hillary and the fact that she appears to be in the pockets of big interests.

But as it stands now, if she wins, she probably becomes the president, as the GOP has only put together a clown show. No one with anything nearing a valid platform.

Just as you see Trump, a lot of people see Hillary.

It may boil down to how many people hold their noses and vote Red or Blue just to vote.

An aside, I thought the thumbnail of Ted Cruz above was of Patrick Buchanan, for a moment.

Anyone that doesn't think he is capable of acting presidential needs to watch more of these archived clips of DJT in his prime.

And now he's past his prime. Maybe he's becoming senile, because nothing he has done since he announced his candidacy has shown he would be a good leader.

Argue with success all you want but whatever Trump is doing it seems to be working, he is proving more leadership and broadening the base of the party more than the GOP has seen in a very long time.

-8 ( +5 / -13 )

Fifty years of abetting racism, of appealing to the worst elements in our society, of disdaining the unfortunate, minorities in general, blacks in particular, and lately, immigrants. Fifty years of telling voters that the Republican Party offered a home for the bigots among them. And, now, those voters have their avatar, a man who tells them that he isn't going to just pay lip service to their passions and hatreds, but is going to implement them as policy.

Donald J. Trump, a proven track record . . .

"More than 5,000 people lost their jobs — dealers, security guards, waitresses, maids, bartenders. When Trump Plaza closes later this month, the total will rise to about 6,000 unemployed casino workers."

"Donald Trump, of course, thinks people should also mention Donald Trump — and his wise move of “getting out” of Atlantic City “before its demise.” Perhaps we should examine Trump’s history in Atlantic City."

Look out America, you're next in line for Trump's tuning up. Trump wants everyone to cheer him on, even when six thousand lose their jobs. Trump's got a funny sense of success America can ill-afford.

he is proving more leadership and broadening the base of the party more than the GOP has seen in a very long time.

Kind of. I wouldn't say he has broadened the base, rather just pulled his base partly from the GOP, and partly from independents and the DNC. But in the process, he has alienated a lot of the GOP, and a lot of his supporters are not interested in the rest of the GOP at all. So I would say he has shifted the base, rather than broadened it.

There is no doubt that he has a good strategy - he speaks to people's fear, and drives them through fear. That works really well with weak people who choose their path in life based on their fears, and there are a lot of those people out there. Unfortunately, it's the pessimistic method of governing, and will never achieve hope, or raise the bar, it only achieves fear, and lowering the bar.

I'm still optimistic that there are enough people left in America that have not let the terrorists win, and don't subscribe to a fear-based approach to government, that Trump will not become president. But you can never underestimate the stupidity of the American people as a group, so I may very well be proven wrong, and we'll see a President Trump come next January.

Hillary first aligned with Obama and after Iowa she has taken that "Bernie's policies won't work" stance and makes the same statements just with more subtlety.

To sumise....I will do what he did (Obama) and now it's I will do what he said (Sanders).

With Trump, he is a dirty fighter and he's no more racist than anyone of us. Regarding Atlantic city....Trump had no control. The city was mismanaged and now it's nearly a dead town. Trump only sold earlier than the others. Better business sense if you ask me.

Donald J. Trump, a proven track record . . .

"Trump then opened the Trump Taj Mahal in 1991, his third Atlantic City casino. But then the bankruptcies started. Heavily in debt, the Trump Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy protection in 1991. A financial restructuring gave bond holders 49 percent of the casino. Trump Plaza and Trump's Castle (later the Trump Marina) filed for bankruptcy protection in 1992."

Now that "Conservative" has been removed from the GOP ShiaTea, what's left?

Crazy.

Trump knows the country is in revolt against Washington, D.C., and he plays to that with his program. It is much more than building a wall much of what he says is positive and optimistic, focused on growth. leadership. clarity even to the point of throwing up bleeding heart liberal strawmen like not allowing anyone to die in the street for lack of healthcare.

If Mrs. Bill Clinton gets the DNC nomination, look for the GOP candidate to move into the White House next January. The only people in this country who supports her are those in the LSM and folks who reside in the perpetual victimhood zip code. Sure, we have plenty of them here, but they are not a big enough voting bloc to help her win the general election. . . .

Donald J. Trump, a proven track record . . .

"Two past Trump bankruptcy reorganizations have failed largely because they did not eliminate enough debt to make the company competitive in the cutthroat Atlantic City market," USA Today reported."

Trump has racked up failure after failure. Now, after bankrupting the "Trump" brand with bigotry, religious prejudice and racial prejudice, Trump expects Americans to hand him the keys to the White House? Will taxpayers cover the naming rights and rebranding as "The Trump White House"? Trump probably wouldn't want an ordinary White House.

I've never been fond of Hillary, but Trump is not a viable option for President. He'd run the country into the ground within a month, and would make George Bush seem angelic. He also looks like either a red-faced pig, a minor demon, or a squirrel, any of which would be embarrassing on the world stage. It's a good thing I'm not biased.

Name calling Trump racist, sexist, religious prejudice, and radicle prejudice is not exactly true. He is riling up interest and free press. I don't like his method yet it seems to work thus far. I do respect Bernie for not playing a similar game. He could sink Clinton should he choose to do so yet he refrains.

And the Trump camp shouldn't put all their eggs in the basket just yet. Jeb, dropped Carson and Kasich would be next. Who will gain those votes? The Dems have just the 2 candidates and Hillary seems to be the chosen one.

You said Trump is no more racist than you - and he's pretty racist. So it wasn't myself making the claim this time, it was you. I was just applauding you for admitting it.

The interview today, for one, hit on some solid points that are traditionally contrary to Republican orthodoxy.

Yes, but I'm looking for things where he is optimistic, not where he runs contrary to the GOP (although for the most part, anything that runs contrary to the GOP will be optimistic). Although I do agree with you that his stance on healthcare does sound optimistic.

Any other examples?

Neither is much of what this fraud says and he has the gall to call Pope Francis a disgrace?

Trump has ruined not only his commercial brand, but the world sees him as some kind of deranged clown.

Some impression he's created in a few monthes, making America Great Again? Not by his example.

Interesting article here from a conservative: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/09/opinion/i-miss-barack-obama.html

The relevance to this article is exactly what I was saying about Trump motivating through fear. From the article:

To hear Sanders, Trump, Cruz and Ben Carson campaign is to wallow in the pornography of pessimism, to conclude that this country is on the verge of complete collapse. That’s simply not true. We have problems, but they are less serious than those faced by just about any other nation on earth. People are motivated to make wise choices more by hope and opportunity than by fear, cynicism, hatred and despair.

Stranger....your a class act. Just in a less mature class than myself. Re-read the post " any of us" refers to JT posters. Obviously you process what you want to believe and not the facts.

The pope response was just as wrong as the popes comments. The pope has no business commenting puplically on politics. Especially when he knows within the Vatican walls he is secluded from the general public.

Should we all tear down walls? No more borders? Is this a "progressive" point of view? This certainly would change the expats standing in Japan if so.

@MarkG Please don't pretend to speak for all of us. I'm not as racist as Trump. You said Trump is as racist as "any of us". 'Us' by definitions includes you. 'Them' would not. So you did in fact state that you are as racist as Trump. Got that?

I kind of "feel for Bern" as he is coming to grips with the reality that Wasserman-Shultz let slip with his own admission , “at the end of the day ... you need delegates.”

The DNC has got the fix in, and so Bern himself is now "feeling the Burn."

The RNC, however, seems to have been marginalized.

So I asked you to please not group me in with you, but stated that I was glad that you could admit that you are as racist or more so than Trump (since he is no more racist than you).

@MarkG if you had said that Trump is as racist as some people / many people you'd have been right, nobody would argue with that. However that doesn't make being racist right does it? You can afford to be racist, you're not running for President of the most powerful nation on earth, he is. If the public want to give the Washington establishment a black eye more the power to them, but choosing someone even more amoral than the people they are trying to spite is just plain idiocy.

Yep. I like options, and I have no problem supporting Republicans when they present a good idea or good candidate. I support both of my senators here in Arizona and they are both Republicans. But I don't like Trump and the religious positions of Rubio and Cruz scare me. I did like McCain and I even liked Romney early on, before he realized that he'd need to shift to the far right to win the nomination.

On the other hand, you have GOP members who are so caught up in "liberals are destroying us and we might fight against anything they do, ever, even if it makes sense and helps the country" frame of mind. About 90% of their "positions" are fueled by empty rhetoric. That's why it's so hard to talk to them about individual issues since they really don't know much about them other than "Obamacare will end America." But ask them specifics, and they usually don't have the tools to respond except for more empty rhetoric.

Maybe for the wealthy. But the debt crisis can be traced back primarily to Reagan, with fanciful notions about restoring America’s economic vitality through massive tax cuts for the wealthy, a strategy of “trickle-down" effect. Reagan’s tax cuts brought a rapid ballooning of the federal debt. When he departed in 1989, the debt had jumped a three-fold increase. He was a failure in handling of national debt.

The Supreme Court nomination thing was a bit of an odd conversation with the Right on JT. They literally thought that "worst president ever" was some kind of legal term that bans Obama from nominating the next justice. It's shocking just how much they have replaced policy knowledge with platitudes, and it's shocking that most of them here refuse to even acknowledge the current condition of their own party.

Maybe for the wealthy. But the debt crisis can be traced back primarily to Reagan,

But he left with a surplus, but if you really want to go back to the woes of the country, how about starting with the grandfather of the wretched entitlement culture, LBJ.

with fanciful notions about restoring America’s economic vitality through massive tax cuts for the wealthy,

That created jobs and a strong middle class and a society that was a lot less lazy and less dependent on big government. Fast forward now where we have 47 million people on food stamps over the last 7 years, No thanks to our food stamp president.

a strategy of “trickle-down" effect. Reagan’s tax cuts brought a rapid ballooning of the federal debt. When he departed in 1989, the debt had jumped a three-fold increase. He was a failure in handling of national debt.

Reagan’s mix of across-the-board tax cuts, deregulation, and domestic spending restraint helped fuel an economic boom that lasted two decades. Reagan inherited a misery index (the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates) of 19.99%, and when he left office it had dropped to 9.72%. President Obama take note: Under Reaganomics, 16 million new jobs were created. Oh, and there's confronting and helping to bring and end to Communism, building a strong military, was able to work across the aisles with both parties and he did it very well. I can go on.....

Ahhh, yes, to the liberals and heir entitlement wanting to suck on the teat government nipple. I keep forgetting, there wasn't enough for you guys to spoon during those years.

It's shocking just how much they have replaced policy knowledge with platitudes, and it's shocking that most of them here refuse to even acknowledge the current condition of their own party.

I don't think so, we do. We know that's it's a mess and we do know on the Dems side, you guys don't want to admit, your party is slowly fragmenting at the seams as well, especially not know the fate of one HRC. As for Obama, I do think he should nominate a replacement Justice, but at the same time, congress should take their sweet time, at least they won't be seen as obstructionists, that would be better, draw it out, take your time. It was Ok for the Democrats to do it to Bush, Clarence Thomas, Robert Bork, so it's ok to do it to Obama, No difference, right? Or....do you libs wanna try and spin that one? Oh, please do.

The fact that Trump is still leading the GOP race shows the sort of people Republicans are willing to vote for.

You libs are too funny. Can't wait to see what happens when the kid gloves come off on Sanders. If you think this 74 year old Bolshevik will idly stand by and watch Hillary take the crown, I would beg to differ.

The fact that Trump is still leading the GOP race shows the sort of people Republicans are willing to vote for. It really is very scary that Trump is even being considered as a potential candidate for POTUS. After Palin got as far as she did, I really thought the GOP couldn't get it more wrong, but I was wrong!

Now you truly understand how we Conservatives feel opposite about Hillary. Welcome to our world.

@bass I can go on.....

As someone who claims to have been a journalist, you know that when you copy and paste from a source like Human Events you need to acknowledge you did that.

Trump has his fans and supporters,they match each other,thats understandable,Trump is a phenomena reflects disorder among certain category of people who still believes he is the best one who will bring them their lost rights.Actually they need badly to restore their minds first.You can agree or disagree with Hillary or Sanders,but both are real candidates,not a clown in a circus or tragic comedy play(black comedy).Let Trump entertain us by his show till we make up our mind which is better for the white house Hillary or Sanders.

...the not so subtle way 'Polls' as reported and statistically presented, by in your face liberals, and ALL media (no exception) PERPETUATE racism in presenting results in racial categories... Likely voters... Black voters... Hispanic voters. Where is even a paper-napkin rough sketch of UNITY seeded in THAT. Where is this 'we all need to bring the country together' dialogue actually applied? And oddly, there isn't a chart I've seen for Pink voters.

I have no problem with people on the right being against both Dem candidates. BUT, if my major leading candidate was supported whole heartedly by white supremecists and far right christians, many of whom want to change the separation of church and state in many instances, I would not vote for the lesser of evils. I would not vote for that member period. I would be more than willing to abandon my party and vote my conscious with an independent person who, even if they don't win, would not leave me disgusted with myself. Too many GOPers are willing to take the "bad" with the good that they feel Trump represents. But If I voted for someone who disgusted me I would feel for the next 4 years like a piece of S&&t. Like a shower could not wash me.

Sanders wants a more Euro feel type of socialism with the big corps footing some of the bill as costs of doing business. You may not agree with his numbers and the money adding up but he is a humanist in philosophy and though I don't know if I can whole heartedly support him, I would not feel like a piece of crap for supporting him. I hear all over FB to support trump to help the white race in America from dying out and the barbarians are at the gate. Well at the rate of growth of most non white races there is no President that can change the fact that America will be less white in the future but is that what life is all about? With kids all getting a great education and the lower class ranks shrinking, in most places more affluence across the board (along with education) usually means less petty crimes and more happy people. I hardly ever see happy people looking to attack other races.

I would love to see 30-40 million people abandon either major party and support a real outsider by voting their true feelings instead of playing the "your vote for this one actually helps that one" game we play every 4 years. Then the majors would really wake up and the country would really have change.

"your vote for this one actually helps that one"

But that's the beauty of it. Vote=Power. This is so god-damm true . .. that Al Gore went crying EVERYWHERE asking for that notorious "recount."

Heh. . . he even lost in his home state. The democrats are such sore losers. But unlike some posters here in these threads (the Dems should never be destroyed) what other formidable adversary is there in the US?
