Donald Trump for President? Could he beat Barack Obama?

Go ahead, laugh at the prospect of the Donald heading into the White House.

Remember though, as goofy as it seems, he is still a serious business man. He is not a cartoon like Charlie Sheen (see Songify This: Winning - a Song by Charlie Sheen), or even Richard Simmons, or other made-for-TV personalities.

Could he help the economy? Could he do worse than President Obama or President Bush?

Could he tell the radical Muslims or Moammar Gadhafi where to stuff it?


Would he, unlike Obama, actually get us out of war in the Middle East?

If he runs seriously, it could forever change politics.

I'd love Donald Trump to step up to Osama bin Laden and sternly say, "You're fired."

Clinton: No interest in job if Obama wins in 2012

Clinton: No interest in job if Obama wins in 2012
WASHINGTON – Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday she does not want to stay in her job if President Barack Obama wins a second term in 2012. (AP)
Is Hillary sour on President Obama? Is this code word for "Get rid of Obama"?

I can't see how else to read this. Can you?

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigns: Obama Supports Humiliation of Inmates

Apparently, strangely, President Obama supports cruel treatment of military prisoners. Aware of the public outcry, and aware of the statements by P.J. Crowley of seeming abuse of soldier imprisoned on charges of leaking U.S. government documents posted on the WikiLeaks website:

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigns
[Pfc. Bradley] Manning was forced to sleep naked for several days under military rules intended to keep maximum-security prisoners who may be suicidal from injuring themselves. Manning's lawyers say he also had been made to stand at attention naked, and that there was no justification for his treatment in custody.

President Obama defended the Pentagon at a news conference Friday, when ABC television reporter Jake Tapper pressed him about Crowley's comments. Obama said he had been assured that Manning's treatment was "appropriate and was meeting our standards."
I'm not sure what to make of this. Amid controversial treatment of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, and the horrid abuse at  Abu Ghraib, plus concerns about waterboarding, I would have expected our president to take leadership against torture and humiliation, but, instead, he supports it as a standard of the US military.

Looks like this Commander in Chief is like the last Commander in Chief. The difference is, President Bush was direct about what he supported.

Matt Damon joins the growing list of celebrities unhappy with President Obama

Matt Damon quotes a friend, "I no longer hope for audacity," as noted here:
Matt Damon joins the growing list of celebrities unhappy with President Obama

Does this mean Barack Obama would lose the 2012 election? Not a chance. 2012 is in the bag -- not because America is impressed with him (they aren't) but because voting against him would being saying, "We were wrong in 2008." Too much pride. America is not that humble. Damon is in Obama's pocket in 2012 no matter what he says today.
