Gawker has an interesting read of the Bain files.

You’d think he would be more careful.

The fact that Donald Trump is even in the same conversation as the convention of a major US political party makes me wonder WTF?


Todd, even Gawker describes itself as a gossip sheet. Really?


so did the national enquirer when it looked into the edwards affair.

Todd, Mitt Romney is an imperfect candidate who no doubt took advantage of every LEGAL trick in the book to pay as little taxes as possible. He also gave his entire small fortune of an inheritance away to charity.....hmmm..... Seems a bit of a problem with that last one for the Mr. Greed cartoon of Romney you're tying to paint. Perhaps Romney was minimizing his taxes so he could give away the percentage of his wealth that he saved, to worthy causes of HIS choosing . Barack Obama is an imperfect candidate who, besides being involved in questionable financial dealings in Chicago (Tony Resko, etc), has a brother in Kenya who last week called up Dinesh D'Souza (conservative writer/filmmaker who got to know him through the making of "2016" the movie), to beg for some money to pay the hospital services because his child had a heart condition. D'souza, who Know's the true nature of Obama, got the man to admit that there was no one else he could call. He didn't bother to try to contact Obama, because he knows the man is an icy. arrogant fellow who could not care less about him or his child's health, despite being his brother. D'Souza himself said this week on Glenn Beck's radio show that this incident happened just a few weeks ago. If he was lying he would be open to slander suits. He's a smart, careful fellow, and he's not lying. After confirming the call was legit, by talking to the nurse and doctor, D'Souza wired him a thousand dollars. I'm voting for Romney.


HalTommyBeamer, I have finally figured it out. You like to throw crap up against the wall to see what will stick, and then sit back and watch people turn themselves wrong side out over what you say.

Well played, sir.

When Andrea Saul brought up Romneycare a week or two ago Erick Erickson of RedState tweeted “OMG. This might just be the moment Mitt Romney lost the election. Wow”

In an effort to pander to women, it’s Mittens who has brought up Romneycare this weekend.

I wonder what inside out contortion the Republicans will do come Monday morning.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference in Sarasota, Fla., Donald Trump said Mitt Romney's birth certificate quip in Michigan last week may have been a lighthearted joke, but that the issue of President Obama's birth certificate is far from settled.

"What I think doesn’t matter -- he has his views and many other people disagree with him as you know," Trump said. "...But he did make a joke, and some people thought it might not be a joke. It happens to be an issue that a lot of people believe in … many, many people believe in it so maybe I would have handled it differently, but he’s running for president and I’m with him 100 percent."

Trump, who has focused on Obama's birth certificate in the past, said that whether he raises the issue again going forward is an open question.

"Let’s just say this there’s a huge group of people that are not believers in what [Obama] did, what he said and where he came from. We’ll see what happens. Well see what happens over the coming weeks and months."

Trump was in town to receive the "Statesman of the Year" award from the Sarasota Republican Party. He was originally scheduled to participate in what he called a "big surprise" at the GOP convention on Monday, but in light of the cancellation of Monday's speeches he's not sure what his involvement will be.

"Well I had a big role tomorrow night. You know what happened tomorrow night. So it’s now up to them. … It’s totally up to them, whatever they like," he said. "They gave me a big role and I was looking forward – I was actually going to Tampa right after this, right after this dinner, but now I probably will be going back to New York. I may come back but I’ll probably be going to New York after the dinner."

Asked to elaborate on what the "big surprise" was, Trump just said it was a "very big thing." "I think they're still going to probably do it," he added.

In regards to Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" controversy, Trump said the comments were "disastrous" but that Akin had apologized for them.

"Well he's apologized, but it was a disastrous answer," he said. "But he has apologized, so hopefully he can do fine."

In a later conversation with POLITICO, Trump would not comment on whether Akin should drop out of the race, and said the pressure of the campaign could have contributed to Akin's comments.

"Maybe he was nervous, maybe he was under great pressure -- I don't know what would cause him to make those statements," he told POLITICO. "I wouldn't be so presumptuous to say resign, but some people are saying that. He made a mistake and he's apologized."

Anyone else following this Drew Peterson murder trial on TruTv?......Peterson is the classic rogue cop, brimming with arrogance and contempt toward others....malignant narcissist if there ever was one....I can't be the only one who yearns to hear news that this smirking, winking, evil bastard had a "very bad day" in the county jail.....an "unpleasant interlude" with a gang of thug prisoners...family blog...use your imagination.......


""But he has apologized, so hopefully he can do fine."
