I concur with Brenda Walker's recent comment about a possible Donald Trump candidacy, that "the publicâ€™s appreciation for the hotel magnate probably has more to do with his straight-talk style of expressing his views."
Trump's way of talking is so refreshing in contrast to the typical political talk we're used to from Republican candidates. I like the fact that he is critical of the George Bush presidency as well as that of Obama.Any serious Republican candidate had better not be trying to bring back the Bush Dynasty.Trump has pointed out the fact that it was Bush who paved the way for the Obama presidency.
What are Trump's views on immigration and the National Question? On an interview with Larry King last year, Trump supported and sympathized with SB 1070.However he also seemed to buy into the "illegals do jobs Americans won't do" argument.
I suggest that Donald Trump is educable on the National Question.People should be contacting Donald Trump, educating him on several key immigration-related issues. Explain to Trump that making Americans compete with illegal aliens is unfair. Explain to him about birthright citizenship.Educate him about immigration history and the need for a legal immigration moratorium.

Without a strong presidential candidate in 2012, Obama looks like a winner. The GOP needs a courageous candidate who's not afraid to confront Obama and address the issues.And please, nobody from the Bush/McCain wing of the party.They've done enough damage.
I have a suggestion for Trump in case he does run.His campaign slogan could be,
