I know there will be some humorous banter about my opening this thread, especially after what I said yesterday, but I must say I was rather impressed with DT on the Sean Hannity show this evening.

The whole hour was dedicated to the interview with him.

Example:   
QUESTION What about ISIS?

ANSWER:  A big part of what makes them effective is they have a lot of money, in great part because of the oil they seized.  Solution?  Bomb the oil fields.   This cuts off their money, and after ISIS falls the oil capabilities can be rebuilt.

My initial reaction to this is a) that is a good insight about the money b) the solution is simple and politically and militarily rather straightforward c) excellent prospects for attitude adjustment around the region and the world.

His hair is more authentic than Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry.

on the one hand:  http://13cgunreviews.com/

on the other hand, apparently he is against "assault weapons" and wants longer waiting period.

Trump and I have a few things in common. One thing is neither one of us will ever be president.

Apparently he let some woman touch his hair today to verify it was not a toupe (sp?)

The ugly tone to his comments about Mexico and Mexicans in his announcement speech will not be forgotten.  If Trump does well, the Reps can kill the Latino vote goodbye forever.

I like Dana a lot, but she lost composure a bit here.

A retort not without wit, but the issue remains.  The Latino demographic is growing and the current Rep demographic is declining.

We lost the Latino vote here in CA by passing Prop 187 (for the record I voted for it) and now we are a one party state.

So voting for open border chaos on a national level will do what for this country? The same great things it's done for California?

Not only is he wrong to call them all criminals

Trump makes a huge mistake about speaking of the "Mexicans".   Many Republicans do the same thing when they speak of Mexicans.  It is about all illegals immigrants where ever they are from.  South Central American, Caribbean, Africa, Europe (50K Irish here illegally one est. in NYC alone), Asia.

The debate need not focus on the *Spanish* speaking ones (though they are the majority).

That would IMO be a good Republican counter to Trump.

BTW Michael Savage just called Trump the "great white hope".   Wow.  Huge mistake.  That gives the left much fodder.

The vast majority of illegal aliens in the U.S. are from Mexico.

According to this article it is 52%.   My point is if we keep talking Mexicans we sound like we are picking on them.  Why not speak about anyone from anywhere who  doesn't belong here?   I think this will divert this from being an "hispanic" issue somewhat.   If we were on the border with India or Indonesia or Ghana most of the illegals would be them.

How is a demand to enforce the laws of this nation "picking" on someone?

Look, everyone here is for strong and decisive enforcement of our border and our laws, so to criticize Trump is not to criticize that.

Go back to Trump's announcement speech and listen to the passage where he speaks about Mexico and the people who come here from there.  It made me cringe.

Everything about Trump is cringeworthy. He isn't any kind of leader I am interested in, but I am beyond tired of letting the left enforce newspeak on us.

His points about Mexico are not wrong but made very crassly.  If only he were more careful about singling out and categorizing Mexicans the way he did he might score more points.

That's right, it was inartful, as they say.  Indelicate.  Within the flood of millions still coming in unchecked are rapists and thieves, etc., even Middle Est terrorists.  That's unacceptable and it will stop immediately after inauguration, he could have said, and not impugn the others for lawbreaking other than coming here illegally.

Maybe it's good that Trump is soaring early in the polls (farther to fall).  He will therefore be on the debate stage until he does fall.  I don't get his popularity, didn't watch any more than a highlight of his show and I hold a personal grudge against because I once paid real money to buy his book, 'how great I am / art of the deal'.  But if he has low information segment appeal, he may draw viewers to the debates, and that is good.  Also good that he is running within the party, not as a 3rd party candidate.  They should all make that promise in order to appear in a GOP debate.  Let whoever should look responsible and Presidential on the stage do so.

Maybe a serious candidate like Carly Fiorina or Bobby Jindal will get left out while Trump takes a seat.  Let them make that case and earn their way in.
