He makes a lot of sense.

Unfortunately even Fox news created a mis-impression reporting about his expletive laden speech. It isn't really that bad.

I could never vote for Trump. The man is a loose cannon, has a massive ego, has no political experience, and has supported Democrats as recently as two years ago, some of whom with rather large donations to their campaigns. I've watched The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, and I don't like the way he conducts himself on those shows. He may be saying all the right things right now, but he has way too many negatives for him to ever have my support. And the F-bombs don't help either.

Dropping those F bombs was a calculated move in from of all WOMEN! He read that audience correctly.

I have not decided whether I like Trump enough to support him or not. I would NEVER underestimate the man. He's no loose cannon, he has more experience in real time negotiations and foreign policy than anyone in this regime today. He is smart, shrewd calculating and ruthless. He will probe, expose and exploit each and every weakness an opponent has.

Right now, he has correctly assessed that republicans are bored by their candidates, tired of republican caving in, chasing bipartisan support, and going along to get along. The republicans are insipid. This is the weakness in the republican party. As Mark Steyn said, the republican candidates are nice chaps who know how to give a good concession speech.

Trump hasn't even said he was going to run. IF he does, you are going to see the entire campaign encapsulate the principles of capitalism v. the principles of communism.

The public is so angry that saying the "F" word is the least of what they're saying in their homes and to their friends. Many are just happy that someone with a microphone is speaking out in sentences that they've said themselves. All these people who have chastised Trump for his choice of words are sill thinking the talk of twenty years ago, that time has passed. People want hard words for hard times, and Trump knows that. He's sized up the audience and giving them what they want. He may change a bit in days to come if he feels the wind blow another direction, but who knows. When he finally comes up to the plate with bat in hand and proclaims he's part of the players for the office we'll see if he feels it's worth it.

I first heard of Trump's use of words the other day from condescending bubble heads on CNN and MSNBC who were sniggering over the idea that Trump might run for president. They're not getting the discontent in this country over Obama's wayward stewardship of the presidency.

On the other hand, I don't believe Trump would be a good fit for president. Schwarzenegger learned the hard way that big talk from an entertainer isn't necessarily transformed into legislation enacted. As possible with Trump, the guvernator was elected by a public very weary of the status quo. And what did the public get in return? More of the same.

So, what Republican candidate could capture the American imagination? King George's second term came about as a fear of Democrats, Obama was elected because Republicans became arrogant over Bush's second win to assume a mandate. Will the public be disgusted enough with all the damage Obama and his minions have wrought to elect a Republican as president? Or can the Republican party even field a capable , believable contender? Or will they put up a loser who guarantees Republican defeat?

We'll see.

For the record, I despise the two major parties equally, most of the other parties seem to me to be villages full of fringe lunatics.

Well what I see is a public that is fed up with the "politically correct" crap. Trump threw that concept in the trash and the public responded. Whether he's a good candidate or not may not be as important as the response he received when doing it.
What the others running in the race need to take note is the response of the people to what Trump is saying and they need to recognize that the public is fed up with dickering around the issues. They want straight talk and issues addressed that relate to all the people, not just the liberal lefts "cuddly nanny takes care of you" stuff. The public is really fed up.
