    In my opinion, I think we may see a more kinder Donald going forward. A man that actually starts to show more respect, and less disrespect towards others running against him.

    He paid dearly for his comment about Fiorina's face, and he can go forward and act like a mature candidate, or continue to be bombastic, brash and be embarrassed when confronted for his childish actions.

    What are your views of my opinion? Truly, we reap what we sow, and for those who support Trump, he has some soul searching to do from now forward. Can Trump grow up? :type:

    Paul...out of curiosity, how old is he? Does he help his own cause by his acting like an over aged frat boy? Personally, I believe he hurt himself last night by his total disregard for others....he had the opportunity to act like a benevolent statesmen & he flubbed it. The Donald is his own worst enemy.

    Why would Trump change who he is to accommodate others?

    Seriously, why?

    He's a bombastic, rich, serial adulterer, pagan, fool who has nothing to offer this country other than bloviating on his news media enhanced campaign. This is who he is. He has offered no seriously policy initiatives, he has no credible ideas to work with, he only criticizes and lambasts which isn't the basis for a good presidency.

    But he won't change. This is who he is.

    A life long Democrat who suddenly became a Republican and is attacking his new party.

    Trump has credible ideas, he has always donated to liberals and conservatives both. He is all about making the deal and that is what he would bring to the whitehouse. He works to get along with everyone as much as possible in order to have relationships established later should be need to get something from them.

    It is not that he was a Democrat and only recently became a Republican. He has always supported both all along the way.


    Having said that he is not my favorite candidate.

    To reasonable folk, almost everything Trump has said should come back and haunt him. To his supporters, "he's saying what needs to be said", which says volumes about their demeanor.

    Trump doesn't have any ideas, except that he's the greatest and never does anything wrong. Bush had him cornered on the insults he directed at Bush's wife but Trump would not apologize. It was a perfect moment for Trump to humble himself and show a little compassion, but he refused.

    The problem is the establishment in the GOP has destroyed their own credibility. Now, anyone seen as establishment have very little appeal. Bush is not going to cut it. He is the worst of the establishment.

    The fact that there are people who ignore Trumps rhetoric and stick with him based on his ideas falls at the feet of the establishment. Its their fault. Period.


    Ie:

    Bush
    Boehner
    McConnell


    And all those in their circles. They have no credibility and no one wants to trust them. People are looking for someone, anyone, who is not one of them.
