Is Donald Trump a DNC Shill?

I doubt he's a DNC shill for one general reason that years of reporting on politics and international affairs have made me realize:

If Trump was a plant, the DNC would be engaging him in the dialogue, in order to guide his progress and keep him moving forward.

Instead the very opposite is happening, both the DNC and the moderate parts of the GOP are averting their eyes, continuing their conversation with each other and pretending Trump doesn't exist. It's a lot like the passengers at a bus stop pretending not to notice the lunatic shouting at them that he gets radio signals from God on his teeth.

The DNC would be happiest if Trump sat down, shut up, and cut them another fat check for Obama's reelection campaign.

He's not doing that and I honestly have no idea if he's serious about running for president. I think if he is, then his ego has become so disgustingly inflated that he sees himself as the next King Louis XIV, and I await him declaring himself the sun. If he's not serious, then he's done what he's always been best at, duping the lowest common denominator of the American public into kissing his feet. Instead of doing so with an absolutely absurd reality show or a garish disgusting casino/hotel he has done it by recycling crazy debunked conspiracy theories and shouting about an imperialist international policy with such social-Darwinism, resource theft and hubris it would make the Hapsburg rulers disgusted.

The Donald is an attention whore, same as Charlie Sheen. Trust me, he's not going to get the nomination. People aren't that stupid............. I hope. Duh, LOSING!!!

Edit to add: Seeing this as a DNC plant is REALLY reaching. They could do better.

its more than possible i think back to what ross perot and ralph nader did during the bush clinton election

either knowingly or not perot and nader took votes away ensuring clintons 'election.

you can bet some concessions will be made.

trump doesnt have a chance of winning but the damage he can do will ensure another 4 more years of obama

history has shown this time and time again

Like many others have already stated, The Donald is an attention whore. He has no intention of running for president, he's doing nothing more than taking advantage of the free publicity in the media.

If anyone is interested where he stands (or stood in 2000) on political issues, check out this link:

I hope he runs though, as it will be quite a show....watching his entire life being scrutinized under a microscope. It may just ruin him.

Nah, that business, not politics. He might even gain some coin from this BS.

The Donald is The Distraction, and a good one.

Even if there was proof that Obama was not a legit citizen, only the Senate can impeach him on such grounds and I highly doubt the Dem controlled Senate will hold impeachment trials on Obama.

Instead of talking about birther issues in which nothing can be done about...

Let's talk about about Obama getting into another war, let's talk about Obama wanting to protect against global warming by halting domestic oil drilling but funding foreign oil drilling, let's talk about the spiking gas prices, let's talk about gitmo still being open even after the promises made, let's talk about TSA groping 6 year olds, let's talk about Obama's connections to a non-tax paying and China job shipping GE, let's talk about massive government borrowing for printed money..........................................and on, and on, and on......

There are more concrete reasons to question Obama's leadership and whether or not he should stay in power.

Donald Trump, is to this election, what Ross Perot was to the 1992 election.
Hes in it to see that the Republican Party splits which will ensure that Obama wins again.

You don't think this could net him more votes? Even if it's not Trump's intent, I see it as working that way.

That is at the core of my thinking here. I think it's a possibility it is intentional.

...and yet both things could be true. Just saying. He could knowingly help Obama while at the same time benefiting himself.

Maybe but I'd lay that a Trump's feet, not Obama's. Like I said, Trump is eligible to run, he won't win though. The Rep's are smarter than that. Like I said again.... ROMNEY 2012!!!!!

One thing I found out. He has donated to many Democrat candidates. He has no history with the GOP at all. Given that he is threatening a third party indy run, you may very well be right.

I will say though, it is my fear that if by some bizarre chance Trump does get elected in 2012, he will not give up the presidency when his term(s) is over. It might be a bit of my own paranoia but he seems to have his egoism wrapped in a lot of entitlement and when one with such a desire for power gets more of it, they are loathe to ever let go of it.

Romney might as well be Obama's political twin brother, especially with that health care plan of his.

You mean the State plan that he brought in? He listened to his constituents. That's a bad thing? When is the last time a politician listened to his people? This keeps being brought up because he's a moderate Conservative. That doesn't play to that political base. God help that he gets in and actually works with the Dem's as well. Can't have Washington working well. Doesn't serve the PTB that would rather see squabbling amongst the electorate. Hell, then we might actually see all the shyte that they are pulling.

Either one of us could be right. I admit that. However I still think it smells. Mention the Birthers to almost any Conservative or Independent and they laugh at the idea. Acting as if it's the general consensus among Independents who are the majority now, would tend to drive votes Obama's way and I hate to see that. Trump must have at least considered that. I doubt he is a Birther either way.

It will be interesting to see where Trump goes with this. He is an entertainer.

Actually I'm concerned about the same with Obama. Look at who he surrounds himself with, but then I'm taking my own thread off topic here


I don't have a candidate I can support right now. To paraphrase a method started by the Left only to be criticized when the Right does the same, I don't have a Candidate in my sights


Where do we turn when our only choices are Partisans who don't care about us? Seems to be our burden the last few elections.

You'll have to get passed that. Not everything is by design by those you don't favor.

I don't think he cares about anything but himself. Hmmm, he just might make a decent politician in this day after all.

Let's hope that he will be seen for what he is then. Before the primaries.

All the polls amazingly agree on one thing of late. A super-majority of Americans are opposed to Obama Care. Not to the idea of better cheaper health care, but opposition to his plan and the crooked means he used to pass it.

We all want good care and cheaper care. It should not even be a Partisan issue. There in lies the problem.

Exactly. That and others. Who would you put forth that can do this? I still say Romney. What Dem do you think can reach across the aisle? What other Rep do you think could do the same? Basically I'm asking, "What cogent voice is left in Washington?"
