The early season is all about the extremes. And the Republicans have figured out that it is all about the publicity. I too am horrified that he has made it this far and that more people aren't speaking out against him. But I'm not giving up on humanity until he gets the nomination (although I bet that would do wonders for voter turnout).

Trump: “Maybe he should have been roughed up,”

 

The protester, a black man, reportedly started chanting Black Lives Matter at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday.
In a video captured by CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, rally attendees swarm around the man, kicking and punching him as he curls up on the ground.

The Daily Pander...
In a rather transparent attempt to appeal to the Christian conservatives who make up the audience at the Values Voter Summit, Donald Trump brought a Bible with him to the podium when he spoke today, because "it brings back so many memories."

Trump them proceeded to spend the next 20 minutes delivering his standard stump speech, which consisted of relentless boasting interspersed with personal attacks on his rivals and vague but grandiose promises to solve all of this nation's problems.

At one point, after wondering why we even need to hold an election considering that he is leading in all the polls, Trump took a moment to assure the audience that he is actually a nice person.

"People were not sure I was a nice person," he said, "and I am. I am. I am. I am. I'm a giving person. I believe in God, I believe in the Bible. I'm a Christian. I have a lot of reasons. I love people."

Trump later closed out his speech by hoisting his Bible in the air and declaring "this is the key."

The “Reason” for Trump’s Success

"I like to make predictions so you can hold me to them. I will double-down on my prediction that Trump will win it all (by a large margin in the general election) and that the media’s explanation for how it all happened will morph from one absurdity to another, because most writers and pundits are not trained to see under the hood.

The explanation for Trump’s success has semi-evolved from “outsider” to “authentic” already. More explanations will follow, assuming Trump continues to poll well. Watch for any new explanations of Trump’s success to be as ridiculous as the ones you have already heard. That’s your tell."

Read the blog and the geo political article referenced.

Ok, works for me.  But I basically agree with what was said.

From day one, I believed Trump is serious.  While I can't yet say I 'like' him, I do support him, openly.  He has passed my first test for all candidates with his distinction between legal and illegal immigration and the remedies needed, nearly word for word.  My thinking on the matter began in the 60's during the Battle of the California Table Grapes incident and the establishment of the United Farm Workers Union by Cesar Chavez.  Illegal immigration was a large part of that and Chavez was clearly against it for obvious reasons, the same then as now.  So he is consistent with my very long standing view on immigration, especially the 14th Amendment and its interpretation.  Anchor babies are not in fact supported by the 14th Amendment.  A test case or an act of Congress is all that is needed to re establish its original intent.

On deportation, only to say that keeping illegals cost this country $200 Billion per year.  We can deport them for prolly $100 billion per year.  That frees up a lot of money that can be used here, for Americans first. There is a net savings in deporting them versus keeping them.  They are not too expensive to deport.  Straw argument.  Should we, that is a separate discussion, but for those who say that it would cost too much ... bull puckey.  It saves money, lots of money in the short term and for sure in the long term.

I believe that Trump knows what he is doing and capable of doing it, especially in the world of business and real estate especially, both domestically and internationally.  He understands the tax system, with no help needed from anyone else to explain it clearly to others.  He knows how to put a real business plan together where the numbers will add up all by themselves, without an interpretation required from the CBO.  They have to work because they are scrutinized at every level imaginable from bank, local municipality, school district, state and federal government as well as internationally.  Few politicians know how money really works, other than what their party tells them to believe and say.

He did not go to either Harvard or Yale.  Wharton, however is a mighty fine school.  He is a lot like Reagan.  Among other things, they both held degrees in Economics, not law.  I have had it with attorneys running this country.

Lastly, he is his own man.  I do not have to wonder who he is selling himself out to in order to raise cash.  He cannot be bought.  Ipso Facto.  When he issues a formal policy, they hold water.  His fiscal or tax policy, I forget which is due out in about two more weeks.  I expect it to be on time, sensical and plainly understandable.  I'm not worried about his finger on the nuclear trigger, either.

Time will shake all matters out.  Trumps is not the only one I would support, but right now he's the one of three I could support.

I'll just toss in Fiorina because I can.  No way in hell.  Now that Lucent was brought up, yes I remember, it was a very big deal here locally and among other things was the destruction of Western Electric.  I had not remembered until now who was in charge.  Fiorina was.  That kills her for me before it gets started.  Bad business sense and judgement on historical levels, beyond redemption.

No spin, the above best taken at face value.  And Trump is the only one running that I can say that I am willing to take at face value.  The rest are puppets of some kind.  I need to know who is paying for them.

Interesting, but I don't see it the same way. Among the reasons he's still here: Money - he's got lots, Mouth - lots, and willing to say the rude things that other people are (rightfully) uncomfortable voicing even though they think it, 2015 - still ramping up, It will be more interesting if he's still around after South Carolina. 

I really don't see his path to the nomination. Even if he somehow navigates the primaries and gets the nod, I just don't see the demographics for the general. I concede I haven't looked at the spread on what it does to swing states or even if it affects which ones are swing, but I just don't think it's worth the effort until he gets some real votes.

Honestly, I'm not sure if he would strengthen the lackluster support for Hilary or not. This may be the year we get 3rd parties over 1%, but I think the chances are better with Bush/Clinton that Trump/Clinton.
