James Taranto at Best of the Web has a good take on this:
“Real estate mogul and reality show star Donald Trump intends to endorse Newt Gingrich’s GOP presidential bid, according to a source close to Gingrich’s campaign,” the Associated Press reported this morning.
Oops! “Donald Trump has confirmed to the Associated Press that he will endorse Mitt Romney for president,” USA Today reports this afternoon.
What changed his mind? “The AP says Trump made his decision following meetings with Romney and watching his performances during the GOP debates. He also supports Romney’s stance on China, which has been a key issue for Trump.”
On the other hand, maybe Trump sympathizes with Romney’s sentiment “I like being able to fire people.” (Homer nods: In yesterday’s lead item Romney was quoted without the words “being able.”)
Our favorite theory is that Trump favors Gingrich and figured the best way to help him would be by endorsing Romney.
I apologize for that post…that was rude.
Happy Birthday TCW! C’mon back!
Goat,a couple of barrels of whiskey could get me to vote for Romney
that’s funny… 4 more years of that current motherfucker in office will get me to vote for Romney. Sorry Mom!
Floyd, I called your Mom. Here’s what she wanted me to tell you: “Floyd dear, I forgive you. We all lose our tempers from time to time, but there are other bad words we can use when we’re terribly angry – try using ‘dang’ – much more gentlemanly. Love, Mom.
Ha! Steph, love the avatar. I DO miss Perry. From the looks of things around here we have some Romney lovers. Hey, that’s cool. My guy(s) and gal have dropped out but I’m pulling hard for the remaining Rick. This is the year we could have run a real conservative…why the heck can’t the rest of the primary voters seen this opportunity??
I don’t think anyone loves him specifically, we are just trying to make the best of the situation in which we are finding ourselves – and at least he’s not Obama.
Happy Birthday TCW!
Wherever you are.
TCW, I was just thinking of you yesterday and wondering how you were. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and a blessed year!
Don’t know – from the looks of most Jihadis, I’d say most dogs are cleaner than they are.
I really wish I had the proper combination of Dutch and Arabic words to describe what I feel about that *&$%^#$%^(*^% politician!
You and me both. Maybe his ban is really targeted at these dogs.
Happy Birthday TCW. Hope all is well for you.
And for the rest of you, a daily dose of why the US is flushing ever faster down the tubes. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg telling the Egyptians that while looking to draft a consititution, do not look to the US Constitution. It is way too old, look to that nice list the Canadians put together in 1982 or the recent South African Consitution.
WOW! I’m such a jerk. Thank you thank you thank you for the wonderful birthday wishes. I’m so undeserving seeing that I haven’t visited my 3D pals in so long. I’m touched that y’all are so thoughtful and kind to me.
Yes, TCW is alive and well! I PROMISE to stop by on a regular basis. I do miss my 3D inmates.
Wow, this is like “Field of Dreams,” … If you wish her a Happy Birthday, she will come (okay, that doesn’t sound right).
Thanks again, Threedonians.
Now off to bed. Have a paper to get out tomorrow a.m. and 5:00 a.m. comes much too early.
Yes…don’t be a stranger. We love seeing the hot Ms. Todd…and you too! Sizzzzle!
So lovely to see you! The female population needs your help, CW!!
“Oh, yeah! Right!,” he said with a disgruntled look on his face.
The female population of Threedonia, I meant.
Reporting for duty, as ordered!
And speaking of election plans: My plan is simple: vote for the best candidate left standing by the time Ohio’s primary rolls around. Or I just might write in Ross Perot since that worked so well before.
Oh and another thought on the election that came to mind Tuesday evening as the Florida results came in: It’s no longer about “who can beat Obama”. It’s now about which candidate can we drag to the finish line to beat Obama (Santorum not included.)
Happy Birthday TCW!
Hey you! I’m glad to see you and hope your birthday is great!
Hope you had a good day, TCW! And many happy returns…
Speaking of Florida, Allen West wants to switch his district to mine. We have an African-American History school-wide event coming up, for which my principal wants to invite local politicians and community leaders to. Unbeknownst to the principal, I emailed West to invite him to the event (I’m on the Community Outreach committee, so suck it). Most of the faculty are liberals, so I hope he accepts because they’ll have to grin and bear it while basking in the media attention that he’ll bring to our school.
Normally I’d guess the latter, but with the current occupant in the White House — and before BarryO goes into chest-puffing mode re. bin Laden, let’s not forget this is the same President who chose to leave the Iranian freedom fighters out to dry — the former wouldn’t surprise me. Just waiting for the Soviets, er, Russians to start saber rattling as well and we’ll be partying like it’s 1979 all over again. Revisiting a brief mention at Commentarama, we’ve even got Van Halen regurgitating tunes from the 70s and trying to pass them off as new.
