Bad enough The Donald is a Birther; he's no believer in property rights, either

I remember seeing this on the news and reading about it in the paper.

So, never believe that Trump is "for the little guy."

Call me a paranoid conspiracy theorist, but I think Trump is trying to sabotage the GOP, and especially the Tea Party.

Actually I think he's drawing fire. He's saying all the boilerplate stuff. Reasonable (taxes are too high) and not (Birther stuff). It lets him act as a bellweather for the next GOP candidate. He floats the idea balloons and the GOP tracks public responses.

I know what you mean Duffy, but look at his three biggest issues. They are all things that, when you look behind the curtain, either are supported by Democrats or make the Tea Party look bad. The Birther crap is what he thinks the Tea Party is all about. Its almost like he's performing a stand-up routine making fun of Tea Partiers.

And then there's China. I don't like China either, but let's face it, if there was a freeze in relations between the US and China, who would that benefit? It would mostly benefit US Labor Unions who are the main ones complaining about free trade, Wal-Mart selling China products etc.

Then there's his third big issue, the Saudis, the one group of Muslim Arabs progressives have no trouble criticizing, mainly because of their connections to Bush and "Big Oil".

Now look a few years back. I think it was during the 2004 election when Trump was considering running as a Democrat.

True, people change. I used to be a moderate Democrat, believe it or not. I actually voted for John Kerry. So yes, it happens. But its rare. And its especially rare for a person of his stature.
