If you'd ever been to New York City and seen all of Trump's Towers you'd have a better understanding of just how successful he is. What is more important is Trump's influence. It will translate into votes for Romney.

yea, trump is a real business failure and therefore questions need to be asked about our serving king,
how many businesses has obama started?
how many more people are unemployed under obama's watch?
obama has done nothing in his lifetime other than campaign and be on the public's payroll.
the guy has no clue as to how to get the country out of this mess, much of which he is responsible for.
the country is bankrupt now, how about the leader who is in charge?
how about all of obama's cronies and the government's losses in those bankruptcies?
obama has overseen the first downgrade in US history.
obama's senate hasn't passed a budget in well over a thousand days.
obama's big achievement obamacare is a miserable failure.
the fourth year of $1 plus billion budget deficit.....I could go on, but I am not cut and pasting, and time is short.

So FOUR bankrupcies are acceptable to be 'successful'...

because of a tower??

I planted a tree.

Does that make ME a 'success?'

False idols, and all that...

**'Trump on Obama's Birth Certificate: 'Maybe It Says He's a Muslim' - Fox Nation - 03/30/11

And yet:

"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...' - The Honolulu Advertiser
- Hawaii: Obama birth certificate is real - USA Today - 07/28/09 - By Dan Nakaso.


And 'yes'.

Trump WAS asking about Obama's birth certificate more than two YEARS after the director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, Dr. Chiyome Fukino verified it...

three times.

In 2009.

I'm sorry Ute.

I'm not even going to reply to the rest of your quote, when you negate your own credibility...

by calling the dutifully elected President of the United states...

'king.'

Your post has x4 questions and all the 'fact's you present...

are supported by...nothing.

Why not just use photo shop?

@Rifleman

Trump's influence? I think if polled more people would say they're less likely to vote for a trump-endorsed candidate than those who say they'd be more likely to vote for one.

@ute alumni

Trump is so bad at running businesses he's declared bankruptcies on casinos. How the heck can you mess up a casino business?

pagan,

two days ago you were crowing about how successful and wonderful BO is because of the BANKRUPT GM and Chrysler. So which is it? is bankrupt OK or not?

DESPITE declaring BK 4 times (as you point out) Trump is VERY successful

Trump knows the greatest threat to our economy and prosperity is another 4 years of BO, so he is endorsing the best chance we have to remove the current mistake from the whitehouse.

I'm shocked that Trump's endorsement even matters.

I always assumed that the only person with a high opinion of Donald Trump, was Donald Trump.

In any case, Romney wins; with or without an endorsement from Mr. Trump.

The Donald has spoken. So let it be written, so let it be done.

Actually, I couldn't care less what Donald Trump thinks. But even he can recognize a qualified candidate when he sees one.

Pagan, I have yet to see any headlines that say the economy has anything but weak growth. This election is about the economy. President Obama has failed miserably in promoting an economic environment of growth. It doesn't matte what his intentions were or all his 'green' initiatives that went nowhere. (The Chevy Volt sold 603 cars last month.) It's results that matter. Time for a new president. And apparently the writing is on the wall. A Gallop/USA Today poll out yesterday shows Obama's state-by-state approval ratings suggest a landslide defeat in November.

Anything can happen in the world of politics, but I'm guessing our next president will be Mitt.

Geez Pagan, give the sound bites a rest and actually post something you thought of.

As for the Donald, the fact that he endorsed Snewt Gingrich doesn't change my vote at all. In fact if I was on the fence, Trumps endorsement would make me vote for anyone but Snewt or Paul.

So in other words, Big Deal!

Good Morning America reported this morning that Donald Trump would be endorsing Newt Gingrich. I wonder what else the national media has gotten wrong.

In three months does Donald Trump utter those famous words: "You're fired!"

Pagan:

Most successful people in business fail, sometimes many times. Of course people who work for The Man rather than being The Man know this and respect somebody who can dust himself off and make something of himself. Strangely, I believe Mitt Romney's father George Romney ran American Motors and it went bankrupt. But he didn't ask for a government bailout. But most successful people in every walk in life have failed a few times, and with Trump it's no different.

"Like South Carolina?"

I was thinking more like Florida. Are you aware the Obama is very worried about that "must win state"?

Pagan,

It's better to fail many times and eventually succeed (like Trump) than to fail and never succeed (like Obama).

"I'm not even going to reply to the rest of your quote, when you negate your own credibility..."

That's how I feel every time you post.

One rich, out-of-touch white guy, endorsing another rich, out-of-touch white guy.
Amongst the glitz and glam of Sin City Las Vegas.

...and coming the day after Romney's gaffe about the very poor.

He'll still be OK for the caucuses on Saturday,
but what a PR nightmare this will be down the road a ways.

I'd just like to point out that Obama said it would take at least 4 years for the economy to start to pick up again. It hasn't taken that long. We've got a whole year since he took office to see what unemployment will do. But to say this mess was his doing has no basis in fact. The economy was in a downturn when he took office, and there's no way to know whether what he has done has helped or hindered the economy. However, at the four-year mark one year from now, if the economy is moving along, he will have been right all along in his prognostication of how long it would take. Then, if he is still president, he can take credit. If someone else is president, I'm sure they will take the credit.
