Trump, who considered a Republican presidential bid earlier this year, said he will not moderate the event to avoid a conflict of interest stemming from a potential independent presidential bid.



politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...


I'm confident it's due to only 2 contenders, Gingrich and Santorum, have accepted. I'm sure NewsMax will cancel this before the end of the week.

He might get five votes in each State.


I wonder how much money he has generated from his fake Presidential bid already.


I'm fairly certain he will at least start the process of a third party bid for publicity.

I watched his show a few times because it is so funny. He finds the worst possible people to cause the most chaos and no way would he hire them in the real world. All he does is get together a bunch of self absorbed people.

So, we are supposed to believe that the reason all the GOP candidates canceled is because they're afraid of the competition, should Trump decide to run as an Independent?



The truth is that the only people who see Donald Trump as a viable debate moderator are Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. I would not want to be in that club. All the other candidates think he's a joke. Which he is. Watch the Apprentice! You're Fired!

"I owe it to myself, my family...

and perhaps to the country."

Atleast he is honest.

Jeez that guy is such a putz....

...nobody wants to be on your damn debate cos you would just turn it into game show...

... the Apprentice US President.

..Donald Trump decides.

Is the ridiculous hair in control of the mouth ?? or does he really believe what he's saying ?

And he may yet run for office..
...you know i hope he does, just to see the look on his stupid face when no-one votes for the ego-maniac.

Stick to real estate Trump..you've been fired.

Damnit, I was so looking forward to the following Colbert Reports and Daily Shows


What a clown


I have to admit, the GOP presidential candidates sure deliver this time:

1) Cain: Quotes from the Pokemon movie. I mean, you can't make this stuff up...AWESOME!!

2) Bachmann: Loooooook into the camera, and smile for having one of the highest "liar" scores on Politifact. If she opens her mouth, and you bet $1000 every single time in favor of her lying, you will win around 75% of the time.

3) Romney: "Corporations are people my friend!" Nothing else to add, he's a bought sock puppet.

4) Newt: Wants to build a moon base to get those precious minerals (like in the James Bond movie), wants to use giant mirrors to light up land at night (also from a Bond movie), twitters the candy brand that pays him $1.5m, and switches wives every so often (an offence which only counts against you if you're name is Cane apparently). Also, according to him, all Palestinians and people form the Middle East (except for Israelis ofc) are terrorists. Yay, more wars if he gets elected.

5) Perry: Who on earth goes jogging with a gun strapped on??? Also, if you're gay, don't dare supporting your country by risking your life fighting in wars.

6) Santorum: Google it!!


7) Ron Paul: One of only 2 who makes at least some sense part of the time. Sadly, the media pretend he's invisible, so his chances of actually winning are pretty much zero.

8) Huntsman: Used to be the only truly reasonable candidate who actually cared about facts...until he too denounced proper science to please the uneducated masses


And of course there's Obama, who is the number 2 sock puppet of Wall Street after Geithner.

Take your pick, you'll lose either way I'm afraid. On the plus side, at least we'll be entertained with Pokemon movie quotes and similar "fun" stuff. At least that way, you won't have to face the harsh reality...for example, the reality that BofA alone made all US taxpayers liable for $75 trillion (not a typo!) of their risky derivatives bets. Over night, and no, it's not illegal. You can thank those who watered down the Dodd-Frank act for that...remember, the very thing the GOP claims "regulates the banks to death"

Trump tried to play king maker and failed.

But did he really fail? he got to advertise his new book a lot in the past couple of weeks during this whole 'debate' drama.

He's always desperate to make a quick buck, he wouldn't have to if he were really a 7 billion dollar net worth individual like he claims he is.

Paul polling 21% in Iowa and New Hampshire, he's been surging this week in NH thanks to a great nationally televised ABC debate performance on Saturday...another one on FOX coming up on Thursday. Hopefully it pushes him more.

Trump is way to big to have a debate that would look like anything other than a Don Trump debate. This guy cant even flip a cigarette butt without someone attaching meaning to it.

Yes, and when they interviewed him in the media, they pretty much only asked who he'd endorse...completely ignoring the fact that he's running himself. Look, like RP or not, the fact is, due to the media blackout he'll never gain enough support to win over the entire country. And of course he's not all great considering quite a lot of his requests would harm a lot of people

I would just like to point out that I predicted Trump would pull out of his own debate:
