    I'm not talking about those rabid RWers that are ashamed of the Bush legacy that's afraid to be called Republican now, I'm talking about the real, true, bonafide middle-of-the-road folks. The ones that have voted both parties at all levels.

    How is this Trump/Romney/Birther thing sitting with you?

    I would suspect they are ignoring it because it is a non issue.

    Trump is an idiot. And Romney has been quoted as saying he doesn't agree with all of his supporters on issues.

    Again, Trump is an idiot, especially when it comes to the birth thing. It's over Trump, Obama was born in Hawaii.

    I was unaware of the requirement that a political candidate must either agree publicly, or disavow publicly, every opinion one of their supporters espouses.

    I think Obama is unaware of that requirement as well.

    Obama may have been born in Hawaii, but Barry Soetoro was born in Kenya.

    Fine.

    President Obama was born in America and was elected fairly. Trump is a moron. Romney is not Trump.

    Team Romney: Not gonna play repudiation game | Campaign 2012 | Washington Examiner

    Smart politics. As the article reminds us, John McCain played the media distraction game and all it got him was a pat on the head from the MSM and a big fat loss.

    Trump seems to be priming up for another public embarassment like he got when Obama referred to him as a Circus Barker and/or when he pwn3d his ass at the roast.

    Some palookas don't know when to quit.

    Seems to be working quite well in the two-teeth/one-teeth, redneck set though.

    Seen quite a few RWers on this very board run with it and have a field day with it.

    That's who you guys are backing?

    Should be fun times.

    It's ludicrous and discredits the GOP and Romney as a whole.

    Both sides are making plenty of tactical errors in what will be a very close race.
