    What amazes me most is there are about 5 GOP debates to every 1 Democratic debate. I guess its ok cause i don't watch the Dem's anyway! I get tired of hearing about all the free stuff we are going to have to pay for that they want to give away! Anyhow, Let see what they try to pull tonight to bring the old Donald down. I actually was not a Trump fan until they started telling me who I need to vote for. They (the establishment) are scared to death of losing the power they have (on both sides of the isle) and that makes me want to vote more and more for the Donald! They need to lose their power!

    Negative press is Trumps best friend. The more they take digs the more popular he becomes. Heck he openly talks about his own "dirt" so bring it on and he'll laugh all the way to the White House. If you've seen the movie The Campaign, well that's the Donald. He could probably shoot someone right now and gain voters.

    Exactly. When he isn't in the news he will say something stupid to get attention. He also lines up endorsements(carson,christie) for the day after debates so he can bury the chatter of how bad he sucked.

    Well Slobear you don't have to know diddly to be President nowadays. You don't even have to be qualified. If you're rich you can run. Personally I wasn't downing the Donald just making a point. Just seems any press is good press for that guy.

    I wasn't bashing him. Apparently he is smarter than the media gives him credit for, or he has some really great minds working with him. +media

    Last night you could tell he knew he was going to win. That's why he toned it down and so did the others.

    You do know that Trump has a very left-leaning track record don't you? I'm not putting a lot of faith in him being the savior a lot of people on the right think he will be.

    I dont disagree with this but for the choice we obviously are gonna be given who you gonna vote for? Him or someone the FBI has under investigation and probably should have already indicted?

    This is the kind of stuff I worry about with Trump. These are just a few positions he has "changed" on (from a WP article):

    Abortion

    Then: On "Meet The Press" in 1999, Trump said he was "very pro-choice." "I hate the concept of abortion," he said. "I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. ... but I just believe in choice."

    Now: In an interview with Bloomberg Politics in January, Trump said, "I'm pro-life and I have been pro-life." He said he believed there should be exceptions in cases of rape, incest or the life of the mother.

    Guns

    Then: In Trump's 200 book "The America We Deserve," he wrote that he "generally" opposed gun control but supported an assault weapons ban and a longer waiting period to purchase a firearm.

    Now: At the 2015 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, Trump said if he became president, "the 2nd Amendment will be totally protected." He told the Web site Ammoland he does "not support expanding background checks" and said current background checks "don't work."

    Healthcare

    Then: In an interview with Larry King in 1999, Trump said he was "very liberal when it comes to health care" and that he believes in "universal healthcare."

    Now: During his announcement, he called Obamacare "a disaster called the big lie" and said the deductibles were so high they were "virtually useless."

    Hillary Clinton

    Then: Either Trump or his son donated to Clinton in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007, he invited her to his 2005 wedding in Florida, where she sat front row, and he's donated at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. He also said in an appearance on the Howard Stern show in the mid-2000s that she was a fantastic senator.

    Now: On NBC on Wednesday, he called Clinton "the worst secretary of state in the history of our nation" and said she would be "a terrible president."

    Party affiliation

    Then: Trump changed his party from Republican to Independent Party in 1999, and switched again to Democrat in 2001.

    Now: Has been a registered Republican since 2009.

    There are also some flips which haven't necessarily been from left to right.

    Jeb Bush

    Then: In Trump's 2000 book "The America We Deserve," he called Bush "a good man," "bright, tough and principled," and "exactly the kind of political leader this country needs now and will very much need in the future."

    Now: On Fox News's "On The Record" this week, he called Bush "pathetic" for his support of Common Core, said his immigration views were "baby stuff."

    Press availability

    Then: Trump wrote in his 1990 book "Surviving At The Top" that he had been "burned too many times by reporters" and didn't believe in being available for the media anymore.

    Now: He grants more interviews than anybody else -- including to the major TV stations on Wednesday and this new interview with the Post publish today and titled, "Trump vows long campaign, won't commit to backing GOP nominee."

    Again i dont disagree with any of the above. Now fact check and back check all the rest of the candidates......... Also my part the Republican party has created its own problems by being old, elitist and to country clubbish over the years and people are sick of it. So either support the Republican party nominee or not. Thats your choice and at this point in time Trump will be the nominee.

    Ok before its said go to a brokered convention and dont give the frontrunner the nod. May as well just vote for Hillary because that aint gonna fly.

    I will not be voting for either of the front running Democrats this year. However, I think Trump is a poor choice for the Republican nomination. People are voting for Trump, IMO, purely on his celebrity status, and not on his track record. I have not seen any sort of plan on how he plans to implement what he says he is going to achieve.

    All I want is for him to lay out just how he plans to achieve his goals. I will be more than happy to give him a shot at running the country if he will just explain how he plans to do so. As it stands right now, he hasn't given any answers.

    If it comes down to it, I probably will give him my vote. If nothing else, it will be one less vote for Hillary, who most people know, or should know, can't be trusted.

    Xi i understand where your coming from. I too dont believe he is the answer but apparently the majority does. I still would much rather have him as her and not just because of the party affiliation. I may be drug around on here for this but last i checked the USA doesnt need a royal family to run it. I am tired of making families rich for generation after to generation to feed on. Therefore i personally would not vote for any more Bush, Clinton, or Kennedy's. Just me.

    I couldn't agree with you more, and I have said this same thing several times. I think there is no use for generations of family members to be running our country. It is at LEAST a conflict of interest.
