    Best thing to come out of Chump’s charade. It gives comedians like Chris Rock and Robbin Williams something to talk about again.

      Trump might not be a charade as he’s getting some Conservative/GOP skeptics to back him. Charles Krauthammer, for one, absolutely believes Trump is going to run now. Franklin Graham is another jumping aboard the “Trump is serious” bandwagon after a call from The Donald.

        Chris Rock: “There is no sex in the Champagne room”
        Me: “Chump is not running…..GUARANTEED!”

        He pulled this same stunt twice before. Nobody ever mentions that for some reason.

        If people are willing to let a snake oil salesman like Trump take control of this country, then they can’t complain about what happens next. Each person owns their own vote. And they should know that if they succeed in chasing the President out of office, where he’s basically paying more in taxes than we’re paying him to do the job, then it may bruise his ego for a bit, it may frustrate him because he can’t finish the job he started – but he’ll be fine. He’ll be just fine.

        Those who are so easily swayed by jokesters like Trump need to wake up and think about the realities and consequences of their willful ignorance. We’ve been given an excellent example from the Wisconsin dilemma, but if grown adults can’t see with their own eyes what the stakes are, then I’m not sure what the answers are.

          Sorry Theo but I do not believe his ego will be bruised one bit! Tis the United States and the world that will be royally bruised and worse if this President is not re-elected! PBO has actually given up so much for this thankless job including so much loss in income!

          In or out of the White House, the greatness that is Barack Obama is here to stay! This President will only be greater, huge and untouchable beyond his stint as the US president! There is no stopping him!

          Actually, if they want to contain PBO’s quiet far-reaching influence and power, they’d be better of keeping him in the very constrained role of President, because once those shackles come off then and only then will they watch heads exploding as the greatness of Barack and Michelle really take off! The world aint seen nothing yet!

            Audrey, I have often thought the same thing. But as President, Barack is establishing relationships and connections all over the world, that will benefit his future work.

            In my lifetime I don’t think we’ve experienced a better President, not only did he pull us away from the brink of depression, but he is stopping us from making a wrong turn that would undo years of progress, and deliver us to an oligarchy/theocracy type government. Americans haven’t fully grasped the import of what we are currently grappling with, IMO. We need to wake up and encourage the engagement of as many people as possible, especially our young people…..they will develope habits of engagement and will have a stronger voice in determining the America of their future.

            OOOOh Audrey! Thank you. I do think you are right. I often wonder what role he will have after the Presidency. I think his influence will overshadow whoever comes next. I certainly don’t think he will fade away into retirement. He just has too much energy and too much of a strong sense of purpose. I am also selfishly hoping he stays visible for a long time because I have to admit I just can’t get enough of the guy. I love his ideas more than anything.

            Very true!

            I tell my family this all the time. Some of them are such haters. They say I drink the kool-aid, and I tell them they drink their “haterade”–spiked.

            He’ll be fine in or out of office. The question is, will we be?

          Come on guys, what am I hearing here. First of all we know things can change in a moments time. Second who is saying Trump is going to be President. The numbers I’ve seen has shown him leading a weak sorry Republican field. He has to defeat them first. I refuse to let O’Donnell, Matthew, Maddow and the other media convince me that this President can’t be re-elected. I am still on board, I’m still in and I will do what I can to give President Obama five and a half more years.

    So watch the big bad bully get in touch with Chris Rock,like that childress letter he sent to Jerry Seinfeld. Here’s Chump talking, how dare you talk that way about me? Do you know who I am? How much money I am worth? How many wives I have had? How many buildings I have build? I got a number one show on tv. I’m Donald Duck, I mean Donald Trump. Let’s wait and see if Rock hears from Trump.

    “Acting up before they go to sleep.” PERFECT analogy, and a much more hopeful one than the doomers and end-timers would like us to believe. We’re witnessing the end stages of a long, ugly battle, and the enemies are flailing because they know they’re about to be defeated. That’s not to say that these bad actors can’t do some damage on the way out, though. That’s why I’m always trying to send out positive thoughts to our leaders and our own communities.

    Do you think Oprah will get a letter? I was thinking, Jerry Seinfeld backed out of an event Trump’s grown son was having. Shouldn’t it have been Trump’s son who spoke up, instead of Donald the Bully.

    I had a feeling that Rock had a whole lot more to say about Trump that didn’t make it to air time. I doubt whether he just had one little comment on that subject and a lot of juicy zingers were left on the cutting room floor.

      Ya doster that’s what I thought. Rememer oprah wants to cut the clowns hair live on her show, people will do anything for ratings. Chris rock is a zinger not a 3 words persons.

    I had to turn my tv from the MSNBC Lawrence O’Donnell tonight talking about how the President poll numbers is sinking,and how Trump is on the rise. I had to get away from those people because they made me sick. It’s that CBS-N.Y. Times poll which they have been quoting all day. I just had to leave them alone. So I’m back up here for awhile. Is the President back at the White House now?

      Me too Anniebella. I am down to watching only Lawrence and Rachel when they are talking like they have sense. But I think I am just going not going to watch any shows for a while.

      I did the same thing anniebella…why aren’t they talking about the jobs being created (I think I read) in at least 38 states. And Rachel had a guy on talking about how bHe sad the GOP budget is, but that President Obama’s is even worst. He said the Progressive Caucus had a better budget. I thought the way things worked is the President gives his desires and then Congress work from that point of reference and the end result is something we can all live with. They act like President Obama’s budget” is already law…what happened to the process? I have turned on these people less and less, ever since I found you all…I click on Huff just to read the headlines and then I leave before my blood starts to boil! Thank God for TOD!!!

        The PL is pushing the Progressive budget bill created the by Progressives in Congress. The President probably know it will get no where in the house so why bother. All the PL does is try to get the President to do what they want. There is no balance to these shows. You either the extreme Right or extreme Left.

          You’re right Betty’s Girl…they think they are so smart…these are some of the same people who cost us seats in 2010…yesterday, I heard Cnek (sp?) say the country is “progressive” blah, blah, blah. Where do they get this craziness? I am so glad I have you guys to help keep me straight!

      LOL! Please, those poll numbers make me laugh. Trump is on the rise in the Republican Party–not among independents and Democrats. In fact, I think the more American people are getting to know him, the more they know he’ll be a disaster. Trump is not on the rise among anyone else but the right-wing, and everyone knows it’s because of the Republicans sorry field of losers. I really hope he becomes the nominee by the way. I know Republicans who are more likely to vote for the President if Trump is the nominee. If the Party gives him the nod, I think that will be the last straw for many Republicans. Why do you think Rove is bashing Trump. The party big “whigs” are trying to push him out just like they did Palin. And they didn’t like McCain either.

    Chris is right; all this tea party/birther mess is about the inevitable browning of our country – and they’re pissed about it, but they can’t stop it; so they bitch and moan.

    The Tea party/Libertarian has taken over the Republican party. They are now in a great position to take over the country with laws and policies that will but us back to the early 1900’s. They have all the money and connections after GW Bush destroyed established Repubs. Reince Prebius, who beat out Establishment Repubs like Rusty’s, Rove’s, and Steele’s nominee for RNC head is nothing but a Tea Party racist. I agree these people don’t like the changes in the country that now makes them a minority but I don’t think they are scared at all and I think they smell blood. The Ryan plan is so extreme and out there I believe the Repub are gambling with the chance their base and some independents will vote based on cultural and racist values. Judging by some of the town halls meeting with Repub reps I think they were wrong but who knows. It has always worked before. We can laugh at them but we must also be ready to counterpunch with messaging to keep our voters motivated and informed. I trust the President completely. He is a very tactiful person. It is congressional Democratics the worry me. We lost the mid terms because Dems imploded. Everyone thought the Repubs would because of the Tea party but in the end they decided to support whoever the nominee was. The activist PL is no different than the TP. Their are very destructive to their party so we will need to be out making our voices heard.

    From what I am seeing things are going just as Plouffe and the President said that wanted. Plouffe once used a phase like how “Dems needed to get inside the Repub’s house.” Neither the President nor Plouffe are the kind that show their hand; but it seems like that is happening. They have goated Ryan to first producing that horrible budget bill, and then put some much pressure on the Repub that they actully voted for the thing just to show they supported him. I believe I heard Reid is actually going to bring it to the Senate floor so senate repubs will be on records as well voting for it. This is a huge political win for Obama. I am excited to see what else will be added to the arsenal. I have no doubt they are working all ends to help damage possible repub candidates.

    As for CHUMP! I think the President would love to run against CHUMP, PALIN, or any other cooky Repub. It will be much easier sell for him. I think Romney is his biggest threat judging from how the Dems are responding to him. There was a reason they did all the promoted celebration for the anniversary of Romney’s health care plan. My goodness Governor Patrick did a television tour thanking him. I think they wanted to remind Repubs of his record which is going to make it very difficult for him to win their nomination. This is exactly what Reid did during the Midterm. He helped pick his challenger as one person put it. CHUMP is doing what he always does which is put his name and brand on someone else work. This is his forth reincarnation as a politician. I still believe this was his worse business decision ever. We have to make all the negativity he put out there stick to him like glue and then let him just be CHUMP. It’s going to be gold. What bothers me is that I feel NBC is showing no professional intergity at all. Trump right now is their employee. He should not be getting all this free air time on the network. It is obvious he is friends (as friendly as you can be in Showbusiness) with almost all the on air talent (they are not journalist)on all the shows. I hate when other people bring up what GW Bush would done buttttttttttttttttt Rove would’ve had NBC taken off air by now.

    Donald Trump will not be the nominee. He may be getting the highest numbers now, but for many Republicans he is a New York City elitist who will burn down the house and walk away with the insurance money. They might as well nominate Bernie Madoff. By the way, Trump was Democrat until last year. He voted for President Obama. He supports single-payer health care. He is pro-choice. He pisses off rank and file Republicans who think he is exploiting the birther conspiracy because he is really a rich east-coast liberal. The Republican king makers know a fraud when they see one, and they’ll be damned if they give him any RNC money. He is a Trojan Horse.

    Mark my words, even if he runs, he will not get the nod. The Republicans know how to steal elections. They will do everything in their power to make damn well sure he doesn’t “win” the nomination. Their biggest fear is that he’ll run as an independent and split the Republican vote. Democrats and independents will not vote for the Donald over the incumbent. Donald Trump is a real danger to the Republican Party. Rove knows it, and every other Republican who believed they safely got rid of Palin knows it. At this point the Republicans are playing whack-a-mole with the grifters. Trump is the biggest threat thus far– he has a lot of money and he doesn’t owe the Republican Party anything.
