Yes, I think I can sway you. Since a massive ego would be one requirement, we're good there.
I am with you there. I agree it is both necessary for the job and Trump has it in spades.
As far as business expertise, Trump has lost it all at least once in the past. He owes nothing that I'm aware of.
How did he get back from losing it all? Do you know how many times he has failed and been bailed out? Is he self made or was he handed a lot to lose
to begin with? I understand he is rich now but so is Paris Hiltion, you know?
The guy in charge right now has never had to make a payroll, or ever really had a job outside of the public sector. He's cluless when it
comes to understanding what the small business man contends with in this country. All Obama is, is a community organizer. All he knows is what he's
learned in school, and that's why he's not qualified for the job.
I believe I am all clear that you do not like Obama. I hardly feel it is a productive course for any country to simply look to someone else because
they are not that guy. If I ask what would make Trump a great president, telling me Obama is a community organizer does not make that argument any
more than saying the guy down the block collects strange dolls. Neither one of them are Trump and thus do not exactly explain why I should be for
I am sick of people telling me to go one way or another just because it is AGAINST someone else. There are other people that are also not Obama. They
might be better than Trump. Why Trump?
I can clear it up for you once. Trump started not poor but not wealthy either. He had enough money from his father to buy one building in New York
City. Certainly a chunk of change to start with but not in the millions. He nevertheless parlayed this into one success after the other.
During the 80's he fell to the economic boom by overexpanding as many other investers did. His casino's and such ran into serious problems and he
was looking at bankruptcy. Getting into the problem is not so much the issue has how he got out of it. He gathered all his bankers who were looking at
forclosure and somehow convinced them that he could take his situation and turn it around.
They agreed to finance a loan for him for how many millions I forget but basically it was make or break time for Donald. He went double or nothing
really. Anyways he worked his ass off, liquedating what he had to, making deals he needed and in the course of two years I believe emerged debt free
with his loans payed off.
This was done through sheer will of force and hard work. Another example is the famous ice rink in New York City that had been under construction for
years and was extremely over budget. Trump said he would take it over and did and finished it under budget in record time. Because he enjoyed the ice
rink and wanted it finished.
He makes things happen which is needed in Washington and he knows how to bargain with people. He is far more qualified than any of the other people on
either side running. His biggest flaw is foreign policy but right now I think that takes a back seat to our domestic policies.
