Trump threatens to run as third party candidate.

As mentioned I'm no fan of Hillary but still think she would be preferable to any of the R's, and since we will be down to Hillary and Jeb, this would just about seal it.

Of course, this guy probably doesn't recall half of what he says on any given day, so I doubt this would happen.

    To me Jeb would not be entirely objectionable. Of course I said that about W, and look how that turned out.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I'm pretty sure that was the intent. No way in hell he gets the nomination.

    I've heard, maybe here, that the GOP likes Trump as he is a detraction from the problems of the more electable conservatives.

    Was reading today that in some quarters he is being conceded as actually winning the nomination! IIRC about 20% of likely GOP voters feel he can win the nomination... so, it appears he'll be around for a while. Imagine a Hillary/Donald showdown. An enterprising Donald Duck could beat both of them and sneak in, especially if they had to run on trustworthyness.

    Yeah just like Herman Caine could win the nomination.

    Just sayin what I read, belief not necessary. In a related (?) story, there is an eight and a half foot statue of Satan causing waves in Detroit. The Satanic sect owning it is looking for a permanent home for it. Off-hand, I can't think of a more appropriate placed than half-way between the White House and Capitol Hill.
