WaPo: The Nastier Trump Gets , the More People Like Him ?

      It's past Thanksgiving, so is it still the silly season....too early to matter...?    That's been what's been said all summer and fall as Donald Trump and Ben Carson have led in the polls for the GOP Presidential nomination.
      The Washington Post opines that Donald Trump is getting nastier and yet people like him. The latest is a purported slight of a Times reporter who is physically challenged and The Donald seems to have ridiculed that in a recent speech, although he denies doing so.
      I think it is still early and the advertising crush we won't see in NY will shape the early primary and caucus states.
      One local GOP rain maker told me last night that Mitt Romney will end up as the nominee since the current choices are not distinguishing themselves.
      Could be.

Like Biden, Mittens never said, "never".
But Romney has the same problem that Christie has. They both would be historically great presidents but they both are not popular with the base.

Its not fair to say the current choices are not distinguishing themselves. Its impossible to do with so many great candidates.

It is funny to hear JEB idiots try to take on Trump with negative commercials. They try the exact strategy that our state run media tried and failed with. They don't understand that McCain deserved to be derided for calling Trump supporters crazies and that means it is fair play to make fun of his capture. You may not be smart enough to agree with that but you ought to at least be smart enough to know that his supporters agree with that.

He calls a spade and spade and dosnt beat around the bush... Bush and the politicans answers normally come with two minute answers that you dont know really what they just said and after to figure it out they have said nothing. Simply put, they cant answer the questions because they piss of half of the people so they simply lie so they can tell the other half what they want to hear.

Who are T-rump supporters? Um ... I see and hear them being like-minded, just as angry, just as nasty, just as mean-spirited, and just as insulting as T-rump, and whoa, wait a minute. It seems like I am describing many of those who post and drink at this trough of enlightenment. Damn ... let me back up a bit and reassess.

Romney was really a girl. That's why he didn't connect with voters. If you're going to go girl, go all the way, like the current occupant.

The media made Trump by attacking him. They could stop Trump by just reporting the truth without fabrication or comment. The MSM does not understand that they are hated far more than Trump and that by attacking him they make Trump more appealing.

Anyone still supporting Trump is a fool. He has no chance of receiving the nomination. Get over it kids...

I remember when Obama compared his own bowling to the Special Olympics. But that was not in response to a reporter attacking his credibility on the true reports of people celebrating the 9/11 attacks in New Jersy. Obama's nastiness was just off the cuff making fun of the people who participate in the Special Olympics.

Again people want to back another jerk who has the wrong information, over talks and loud to cover the facts that all he says is bull shit. As a country we believe anything just because we want to back there team no matter what they do wrong. Trump is what is wrong with things . All he cares about is himself and you want him as president come on .He has broken more rules than anyone and lies about everything won't admit when he is wrong and the double talks to get out of what he says. your right he will fit right in so vote him in hell he can't even make his hair look good.

7:19, what you described sounds like a real politician .. Guess that's why he is running. And Dan, you really have shown your true colors. You blast people who do not conform to your views, your perspective, and you believe that you are the only true "political patriot", in this neck of the woods. Then you sound off at people, who disagree with you. Why not learn to get along in this world ; show respect, you may get it in return.
