So, I'm mostly ignorant of the media laws regarding political stuff, but isn't there a little problem with Trump announcing his White House intentions on his network TV show?

(or announcing a press conference to announce)

right? i used to say that W Bush made Goldwater look like Lincoln.

the downward spiral continues. sure, you can whip up enough nativist froth to win a mid-term election ... but when these are the candidates you have for a presidential election, when these are the candidates who are the supposed leaders of your party, you know you've got some issues.

I think he already said he wouldn't be announcing it on his show because he wasn't allowed to.

this is probably why Trump actually is winning.

I agree that DT is not going to run. He is a sick joke, using this as a publicity stunt to get ratings for his show, which has fallen in the ratings recently.
Remember the fight he started with Rosie O'Donnell on the VIEW way back? If you notice these stunts pop up during the SWEEPS period when it's make or break time for ratings. He is a publicity whore. Totally.

"I'm sorry if my email offended anyone, I simply found it amusing regarding the character of Obama and all the questions surrounding his origin of birth. In no way did I even consider the fact he's half-black when I sent out the email. In fact, the thought never entered my mind until one or two other people tried to make this about race. We all know a double standard applies regarding this President. I received plenty of e-mails about George Bush that I didn't particularly like yet there was no "cry" in the media about them. One only has to go to YouTube or Google Images to see a plethora of lampooning videos and pictures about Obama, Bush and other politicians. That being said, I will NOT resign my Central Committee position over this matter that the average person knows and agrees is much to do about nothing.

"Again, for those select few who might be truly offended by viewing a copy of an email I sent to a select list of friends and acquaintances, unlike the liberal left when they do the same, I offer my sincere apologies to you – the email was not meant for you.
some people have no fucking shame.

I hear the same kind of dishonest excuses and dissembling from my middle school students all the time. It's a shame so many adults never manage to develop more integrity.

How many times do I have to tell you guys? The right is NOT ran by a bunch of racists.

Racism is dead on the right.

The economy is fucked, the banks are fucked, and America is losing its world superpower status by the day. America is quite literally getting poorer by the day, as the dollar crashes and precious metals continue their seemingly unstoppable rise.

While not all of the above is the President's fault, Christ, some of it did happen on his watch. The last two and a half years, specifically.

In critiquing Obama's presidency - and in theory, I'm all in favour of critiquing his presidency, as I think he's been absolutely rubbish - I would have thought the mainstream right would come up with better ideas than "blacks are close relatives of monkeys." How wrong I was.

I liked how he is unable to offer a "sincere apology" without taking a jab at the left.

Not being an asshole: you're doing it wrong. TWICE.

You are overestimating the mainstream right.
