I just finished reading a Larry Elder post from GOP USA pertaining to Donald Trump billionaire entrepreneur. Elder came to some of the same conclusions I posted entitled, “The Donald as a Conservative GOP Nominee?” That conclusion is that the Donald has too much baggage to translate himself from a cutthroat businessman to a schmooze the voters’ politician. And I do not use the word “cutthroat” in a pejorative sense. I am guessing a person who achieves the status of billionaire without an inheritance utilized some pretty aggressive moves to get where is.
Elder concludes some of Trump’s past dealings will be scrutinized so much that he would be spending as much time answering or justifying intrusive questions as he would actually campaigning for a GOP nomination.
Also, Elder places the Donald’s emphasis on the Birther quest as a deal breaker for a serious run for the high Office of President of the United States. HOWEVER, Elder also believes that the Donald’s emphasis on the Birther quest could do some political damage to President BHO because it will place in the forefront this question: Why is it that Obama has spent millions of dollars to keep his long form birth certificate from public view and why is it that Obama refuses to make public school records from elementary through college? These are things that EVERY President has provided to the public from time immemorial of our Revolutionary War created American Republic.
Donald Trump persists in Birther publicity even in the midst of Republican critics proclaim the Birther issue is a ludicrous campaign strategy. Check this out:
