Wow, that was so anti-climatic.

That's it? What a narcissist!

The biggest problem is that the ideologues love this stuff. Pretty much most of our problems in American politics revolve around ideologues. This is a rant unto itself, so I'll leave it alone for now.

That said, the smears are not nearly as bad as it used to be because it's not working like it used to. And they only do it when they do it because it works. When it stops working, they'll shut up about it. And some of those attacks have stopped working. Which is probably why the Romney camp won't touch (or doesn't seem to want to touch) that cocaine thing.

When Clinton didn't 'inhale' it was all the press could talk about in '92.
Then he got elected. That 'smear' didn't work. So basically they stopped using it. Even though I think some on the Left tried it with Dubya, once again, it didn't work. Nobody cares about light drug use in your 20's because probably half Americans (or more) experimented with drugs in their 20's.

The moral character shit evidently still works (to some degree) whether it's Swiftboats or Bain. They'll stop doing it when more and more people stop being influenced by it. Thankfully, I think that stuff is becoming less effective as time moves on. As long as someone seems to have an idea to get more jobs and better paying jobs, most Americans don't care about the rest.

This whole argument about it not mattering is really pissing me off though. It only doesn't matter because they didn't get caught.

I have a person in my life who is very important to me that got busted. Now that person has a felony and no job or way to support their family.

The fact is, it's a crime, no matter the circumstances, and selling cocaine of all things would be a big deal, at least to me.

But we're arguing about hypotheticals here.

Let's get back on topic: Trump is a douchebag.

So ... the October surprise is that Trump is an obnoxious, attention-seeking windbag?

That's not really a surprise.

Seriously.
Ha. I like how Trump is utterly oblivious to how insignificant he actually is.

I bet the people over at Fox News are pretty pissed off right now.

If Romney wins a close race, he will have Trump to thank,

first he jumped in early during the primaries, to put Romney over

second, he worked Obama over and kept him on the defensive, so Romney could get the victory

I think Trump built this all up in order to start all kinds of internet speculation. Some people will believe all of that coke dealer stuff and whatever else. I'm sure the e-mails have been widely circulated. Or just for the insinuation that he really has something on Obama's school and passport records.

Plus he did it because he's one of the biggest attention hos on the planet. That's a given.

deep, I have to ask, are these truly your opinions or are you playing the Steven Colbert role?

the Trump thing is his talking point, I am sure that will be his point of view ( he brings the sun up, because he crows in the morning)

Jon Stewart, he basically took the best line of attack off the table for Romney,
Romney is a tax cheat, one of the worst people in America to have any influence on our tax system. Now there is a real chance he will be holding the cards.
George Romney was a very honorable and decent man, he paid all his taxes, never dodged any. Released 12 years of tax returns. He also got out in front on civil rights, when the Mormon Church told him not to. He really would be spinning in his grave, if ever anyone does.

Even his friend Barbara Walters said on her show today that he's making a fool of himself and he needs to stop.

I like how Obama said on Leno that it goes back to when they grew up together in Kenya. Don't know who wrote that for him, but lol
