Donald Trump is correct when he says that there are millions of birthers. Judging from the postings on conservative websites, I must admit birtherism is widely held, unfortunately. Many who are opposed to Barack Obama as president hold that view and will not accept ANY proof to the contrary. No logic will penetrate the mindset of a birther; no evidence is sufficient or true. If a proof can be faked, they believe it has been. So Donald trump is correct when he says that there are many birthers. He is incorrect when he lends his support to their fantasy.

We know that Mitt likes to fire people; he did a lot of that at Bain and he told us so. Yesterday, he attended a fund-raiser hosted by another famous person who fires on network TV each week, Donald Trump. Tonight Mitt will attend another fund-raiser in California hosted by Meg Whitman, who ran for governor of California and lost big. She too learned her trade at Bain and recently announced layoffs at Hewlett-Packard of 27,000. That’s how Mitt and friends make money and keep it, they fire people who work for a living and they hire lobbyists to craft tax laws in their favor. We all should be so fortunate.
Mitt Romney and Donald Trump should run on the same ticket because they both speak the same language. Of course, in a battle of egos, it might be difficult to decide who occupies the top spot on the ticket. Romney is really wrong about firing your healthcare insurer, usually it is the other way around with the insurer refusing to insure potential claimants. How do you say you’re fired in french, Mitt?
I lay awake last night trying to decide who the GOP would nominate to be their presidential candidate in 2012. Would they nominate someone who could win the election against Barack or would the quest for ideological purity lead to the nomination of a TEA Party favorite? I decided that none of the above would be their best bet for the following reasons. The GOP should just concede the election by not nominating either a presidential or vice-presidential candidate. Barack is going to be re-elected anyway, and the GOP can save millions of dollars by not competing. In addition, if Barack is a shoo-in, fewer Democratic and independent voters may vote in November, 2012, making it easier for the GOP candidates to win down-ticket elections. Therefore, my recommendation to the Republican Party is to select none of the above candidates for president. Your election prospects will be better if you do not challenge Barack Obama in 2012. Start planning now for 2016.
