    You would think with all Trumps money, that he would hire an experienced Political Adviser, so he wouldn't embarass himself publicly, like he does every time he goes on television for Political purposes.. Mr. Blitzer might as well have been interviewing a grapefruit.

    Trump and Romney are great business men just what the USA needs.Romney knows how to get business into a profit position.He has great family values,unfortunately has words taken out of context but look at the bigger picture rather have someone that can walk the talk.You need a composed person who can also listen and won't just jump in and loose his cool like Gingrich.

      It wouldn't work bcuaese it isn't particularly forceful. The response is that no, I don't think I'm important, but WE (I) stand for something. Which is a way of saying, no, I'm not important (because this is the logical answer; bcuaese if you don't acquiesce to it you lose, bcuaese those are the terms of the discussion ) but yes I am.

    who cares who the egomaniac trump endorses? trump is relevant because???? these are two peas in a pod–both superrich, both like to fire people, both detest the poor and middle class, mitty (and probably trump) pay substantially less in taxes than the rest of us, both would not survive should they have to live on my meager social security (my annuity has been decimated by wall street's antics). trump walks about with the scowl frozen on his face with the white circles around his eyes (?is this due to goggles in a tanning booth?) and has belittled mitty but now endorses him–what a hypocrite. mitty appears devoid of any emotion–any person who straps his dog to the roof of a car instead of the luggage clearly shows his lack of compassion or feeling for another living being.

    Romney appearing on stage with this egomaniacal jerk is not only a nothing story in politics, except that it illustrates the fact that Romney depends primarily upon a few millionaires and billionaires for his financing and really has no connection to the middle class or poor. Contrastingly, president Obama has raised many millions, and 98% came from individuals donating $250 or less. He gained some 200,000 new donors above his 2008 level, which was very good then. The majority of America knows the president can help the nation to recovery and that it is the minority Tea Party/Norquist GOP that wants no progress while Obama is president Their policies mean disaster of major proportions and should not be allowed to succeed. It is the most radically right-wing party since the Civil War.

    Wolf – Another interview and day-long coverage of "The Donald"? Really? Who cares who he endorses – he's completely irrelevant. It irks me that CNN continues to give him undeserved air time. I'd rather listen to Donald Duck!

      Hi there. I have heard of the Trump Network. I was in a similar essinbus and to be completely honest with you, when times are tough, the first thing people cut out of their budget is autoship of a product. I have a couple people who joined Trump way before the launch, however, I have not heard back from them about their success or lack of. The key to being successful in ANY MLM is to have the right mindset and to be trained. If you would like to know more, send me a message.References :
