    Let's analyze the term used by LDS Liberal: "rich, out-of-touch white guy"

    1. Rich - Yep, they've both got money. In fact no one in this race doesn't have more money than me, so for me they all qualify as rich, regardless of their politics.

    2. Out of Touch - With what? Your personal agenda? Clearly they're in touch with the ability to be successful in our society. Perhaps those who claim out of touch, are really the ones who don't get it. What's the primary issue of this election, if not the economy? Seems to me someone still doesn't get it, but it ain't these two. They at least know how to make ends meet in economic downturn.

    3. White - What does this have to do with anything? This is the most racist offensive nonsense I can consider. Are you suggesting that if you're white you can't be elected? Or does someone have to be some other nationality to be elected these days? I'm really tired with this racial slur nonsense employed by the Left to attempt to make others afraid of racism. It is a loathsome hypocritical despicable lie.

    To "LDS Liberal 7:23 p.m. Feb. 2, 2012" and you support an out of touch black guy? Can you explain what race has to do with anything?

    The question is, do you want the next President to be somebody who understands business and how government interactions can cause problems for them, or do you want a President who has no understanding of how government red tape effects business?

    While you are thinking of that, also consider this. How in touch with the middleclass or the poor is a person who spends their vacation time in highly exclusive locations that cost thousands of dollars per day to rent?

    "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"

    If you've been listening to the news you must know that the voters aren't going to give him a second term if he can't prove himself in the first one. Obama is in deep trouble as his Electoral College Map Grows Steeper.

    Wishful thinking won't cancel out the hard cold facts.

    Trump was going to go with Newt before Romney made his insightful comment about the poor. Trump then recognized a soul mate.

    Howard Beal, posted: 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.

    Me: Check wiki before you post. George Romney handed over CEO to a Roy Abernethy in the mid 60's, before running in the 1968 Presidential campaign.

    I am surprised that Trump endorsed Romney. Surely I'd thought he'd stick it back at Romney for refusing his debate offer. I am glad he is man enough to swallow some pride. My respect for him has been restored a tad bit.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
