    Default Donald trump considering Presidential run?

    Donald Trump has revealed that he is considering running for president in 2012.

    The Apprentice star revealed his hopes of representing the Republican Party in a future election during an appearance on Fox News.

    "For the first time in my life, I'm actually thinking about [running for president]," he explained.

    "I am a Republican but have great respect for what the Tea Party has done because they have brought to light what's going on. I mean, we have trillion dollar deficits.... The country is going bankrupt, let's face it."

    Trump later told MSNBC that he would make the decision "over a period of time" and that he has not yet made his mind up on whether to run.

    Ouch, Sarah Palin finally has a rival that could block her assent to being the GOPs choice for Presidential candidate. No matter what a face off between Trump and Palin could damage Palin. Trump with his already high profile won't pull any punches in a GOP run off. I suspect however that Trump has more than a few skeletons in his closet. It would be amazing if he did'ent.

    I am not going to slam Trump if he trys though. The Democrats elect popular Saturday Night Live comedians. Only idiots don't percieve them as being on a media par with Trump. In fact Trump is perhaps better qualified.

    You’ll start to see a couple of names come up for the GOP within the next few months that will make you say “huh?” Rick Santorum’s name has been thrown about recently as well as Trump. Even Chris Christie has made a recent trip to Iowa. One surprising name that has been getting some traction in the last couple of days is John Bolton. Bolton is an interesting choice, and one that I would seriously consider voting for. And if you think Sarah Palin is polarizing...
