Trump Talks Trash

Real estate developer Donald Trump unleashed a tirade of profanity in a speech at a boisterous Las Vegas casino as he assured a crowd of adoring supporters Thursday night that he is seriously weighing a presidential run and will make a decision soon.

During a 30-minute stump speech focused mostly on foreign affairs, Trump sprinkled in a number of insults directed toward the nation’s leaders.

“Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people,” he said. “It’s just very, very sad.”

The full story is here.

Can you imagine if Palin, Romney, or Huckabee gave a speech like that.

It would have been the end of their chances in 2012.

This BUMB, seems to get a pass with a little chuckle here and there from the media types.

The liberals are seemingly mad at Trump for attacking Obama through the birth certificate issue, and more recently the college transcript issue. I find myself siding with the liberals here. I don't particularly care about the birth certificate or the college transcripts. There are several trillion reasons why I think Obama is unfit for office.

I don't know who the Trump supporters are. I've heard them call in to the local radio talk shows, so I know they exist, but I can't figure out what it is exactly that appeals to them.

I personally have great contempt for Donald Trump. He is a bully, he's arrogant, obnoxious and a boor. He has the demeanor of a 3rd world country dictator. I am ashamed of any Republican who supports him. He is bad for the country, and bad for the Republican party.

My fervent hope is that he is merely the flavor of the month, and he will soon fade into the background. I worry, though, because it's not like he is an unknown quantity. His support for liberal policies, his financial support of liberal democrats is not a secret. Please, please Republicans, come to your senses!

I am reminded of an old saying.

"Profanity is the effect of a weak mind trying to express itself forcibly"

Bosman, some of those have come pretty close to the Trump line on obscene language.
