From Huffington Post:

Real estate mogul Donald Trump called into Fox News on Monday morning and matter-of-factly took credit for propelling Romney to a nearly 30-point victory in the Nevada caucuses over the weekend.

"There was a lot riding on that particular race in Nevada and it was interesting, because the numbers were much, much greater than you thought," Trump told "Fox and Friends." "And a lot of people are giving me credit for that. And I will accept that credit."

The people that are giving Trump credit for the Romney victory, are just all the voices in Trump's head.

And to think that Mitt fired his debate coach for getting little too far in front of the campaign in the press, and the coach actually added something of value to the campaign.

With Trump on board Mitt will never again be considered a serious cantidate. Mitt sold his soul and his dignity. He won't win, but if he did you would see a special mini-serie­s edition:

"The Apprentice­: Making of the Commander and Chief." When he loses Trump will say "you're fired", and Mitt would finally have his first "pink slip."


I make a living as a medical insurance consultant, mostly to seniors who have low income or even some level of Medicaid, and I wish for just one month Mittens could live in a HUD or Section 8 senior high rise on $925 a month. Oh, his Medicare Part B would be subsidized, along with his housing, but he'd have to pay about $400 a month for his apartment that has, among other things, bedbugs and cockroaches. He'd have to scrape up the co-pays for his medications, and he'd have to rely on public transportation because he couldn't afford a car (with the attendant insurance and gas prices). He'd have to run out of decent food by the third week of the month and go to the dollar store for sundries.

They should make another "Trading Places" movie where 10 of the 1%-ers have to live like the bottom 1%. Then they could say stupid things about not caring about poor people. Effing idiots, the lot of 'em.
