Why not "The Donald"?

Over the last couple of weeks there has been increasing speculation, fueled mostly by Donald Trump himself, that he may go for a run at the presidency in 2012. Of course this has drawn scorn and laughter from the far left and the late night talk show host as he basically represents everything they feel is wrong with America, the rich only getting richer and the poor getting poorer. I myself being fiercely independent in my voting am holding off my judgment of him until I get a much clearer choice of one, who’s running, and two, what do they stand for.
It’s safe to say that the next presidential election will between president Obama and “whoever”, I’d like to know who that “whoever” might be before jumping on the Trump Bandwagon. Part of the reason for “The Donald’s” great polling numbers at this time is he only slightly polls higher than Obama vs. “X”, meaning basically anyone polls better than Obama as his recent lack of leadership in dealing with Libya, the budget, and the looming fiscal crisis we now face has many second guessing their vote in 2008.
Many of us are tired of the same ole’ same ole coming out of Washington and “The Donald” offers at least a fresh perspective on several issues import to fiscal conservatives like myself. He supports having the Iraqi government, that we spent one and half trillion dollar putting in place, repay at least of portion of our war debt seeing how we basically handed them over 14 trillion dollars in oil that they are now marketing throughout the world. He supports “fair trade” not “free trade” practices with countries we do business with, and making our borders safe and secure. I have to say these ideas appeal to me whether they are realistic or not we’ll all know in the coming months as the election process is underway whether we like it or not…
