Trump my whine
While CNN lets The Donald make a case for net worth as a gauge of business acumen, Politico has come along with what may be one of the first serious looks at the latest GOP "contender." And it ain't pretty.
The widespread assumption that Trump’s flirtation with the presidency is a publicity stunt is no doubt at least partly true. But that’s merely the point of departure for a man whose almost every public move over the last 30 years has been a publicity stunt. Trump has, in the past, hinted at presidential bids, only to pull back after basking in the public interest.It's appropriate the primary source for political junkies take on the task that more traditional media have ignored. And a deep review of Trump's flip-flops and failures is mandatory from a subgroup of reporters that likes to consider themselves the gatekeepers to our national debate.
But in the same voraciously media-hungry spirit in which he has leveled an array of accusations - some overstated, others flatly false - at President Obama in recent weeks, Trump appears likely to launch a formal presidential campaign, hire staff, shake hands in Iowa, participate in debates - in short, run for president.
