Trump Announcement : $5 Million to Charity for Obama Records
Donald Trump said on Wednesday that if President Obama releases his college records and his passport application, the businessman will give a $5 million check to a charity of Obama’s choosing.

He tweeted a video offering Obama the deal. The records must be turned over by Oct. 31 by 5 p.m., Trump said

#1  Why don't you offer $20 million to the LA Slimes for the Khalidi tape, Donald?

Preferably through the bankruptcy court. Have a certified check ready to hand to the judge. That would go a long way toward satisfying the creditors, and might get the court's attention.

#2  Dear Mr. Trump.

Shut the fuck up and go away.

#3  Why should Obama care? If he gets elected he'll just take that five million anyway.

#4  I like this take on Trump's stunt:
This was Trump's preemptive strike against Gloria Alred. That's what this is about. Make her share the headlines with him. Bring her fully down to his level: P. T. Barnum.

#5  That's how I read it too.
Posted by: lotp || 10/24/2012 18:17 Comments || Top||

#6  Pretty lame. I hear Allred's is even lamer. Mitt's testimony in a Bain Capital's partner's divorce case.
But they got their faces on the tube, and that's what's important...
Posted by: tu3031 || 10/24/2012 19:44 Comments || Top||

#7  Personally, I'd more concerned about Allred's info at this time, specifically iff her dirt reveals Mittens cheated on his wife wid another woman whom was married at the time, or ditto wid another man.

#8  JosephM, apparently Gov. Romney was testifying as to the monetry value of the gentleman's holdings in the company, which I think was Staples. No big deal -- Romney's attirney has already conveyed his lack of objection.

Politico: Democrats see Obama agenda release as a desperation move, too

#1  Odd thing about the election this year. Here on Kaua'i I have not seen one single Obama or Romney yard sign. Lots for local and state offices, but as far as you could tell from the signage, there is no presidential election coming up. Not a clue as to why this should be...

#2  What? You say the mud's not sticking?

Quick! Somebody get me a plan!

#3  Hussein Obama announced today that he WILL win this election thanks to votes cast by Mexican Nationals in this country illegally, over riding the votes of United State Citizens.

#4  That's easy, Mercutio. Hawaii is in the bag for Obummer. Same thing here in Kaliphornia. The candidates are spending all their time and money in places like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Those are the so called "battle ground" states that have lots of votes in the electoral college and could go either way. Those are the states that people will be watching on election night. But be sure to vote anyway.

#5  Yes, here in Southwest Ohio my mailbox is full of stuff -- mostly from the Romney campaign. I've been getting a great many phone calls -- both robocalls and live -- from pollsters, PACs, and the presidential and senatorial campaigns inviting me to rallies, asking me to volunteer for phone banks, and all sorts of other excitements. My family no longer bother answering the house phone.

In my neighborhood I've only seen Republican yard signs, but closer to the city it's mainly Democrats.

#6  I get a lot of mailings too, tw, which I ignore.

Last night I got a call from a polling firm asking me to take part in a 3-question poll. She was polite, so I said yes - I was interested in the entertainment factor. (Turns out it was a push poll for the Demoncrat running in our state's Senate race.)

Basically she asked if I'd decided who I was going to vote for in the Senate race (I have; I used to work the same place as the candidate, and even know him slightly), and asked if I has received a mailing in the past week or so (about something against my candidate, from the other candidate). I said I wouldn't know, as I throw all that sh*t directly into the trash without opening it. (Actually, I at least look at the envelopes, and don't remember getting anything from that loud-mouthed lying POS.)

To her credit, she actually laughed before thanking me and hanging up.

Mostly, I just don't answer the phone if the call's not from someone I know. When I get home in the evenings, I sometimes have 5 or 6 messages, most of which are either hangups or recordings, all of which I delete.

I will be so glad when November 7th arrives!

#7  I was in Hawaii last week (north shore Oahu) and saw a metric ton of Lingle signs. I live in San Diego (north county) and see few stickers in general but tend to be Romney more often than Obama. Hardly a significant sample either way but seeing as these are two blue states its nothign short of a miracle in my opinion.
Posted by: rjschwarz || 10/24/2012 14:38 Comments || Top||

#8  Yes, lots of Lingle signs here too (tho more Lazy Mazie Hirono since she's a Donk and is a wholly owned subsidiary of HGEA (Hawaii Gov't Employees Assn)) but still no Obama/Romney signs - I haven't seen a single one. In 2008 the place was swarming with Obama signs with a few McCain. Got to admit, I'm not sure of the dynamic at work here.

#9  Surprisingly here in Sacramento, about 40-45% of the bumper stickers I see are for Romney/Ryan. That was a shock considering I am here in the heart of looney liberal land. I don't expect Romney to carry Sacramento county, but it will be closer than it has been since Regan.
Posted by: DarthVader || 10/24/2012 16:13 Comments || Top||

#10  The Romney post-Debate(s)surge remains inconclusive, i.e. NOT significant or decisive enuff to defeat the Bammer, + the Bammer also remains ahead in possible Electoral Votes.

Whatever unused ace(s) Mittens + Ryan have up their sleeve, they better use it ASAP.


CNBC + FOX NEWS this AM both referred to it as a "global" poll.
