      Dump Trump would have been a complete disaster. He is accustomed to yelling at people and people following his directions because they work for him or because he has lots of money. Without his money or celebrity status, he would not be able to function like the average person or even lead.

    I guess he was dragging this out to get higher ratings and a raise for doing his show.

    I wish he'd gone ahead and wasted a few billion $$ before dropping out as a proven laughingstock. A sad day for comedy writers everywhere....

    Not my comment above. If you use my name, spell correctly: I have an image.
    Che significa, "to sow up?"

    He never intended to run.
    He would not have gotten elected, anyway.

    It's the same troll who hijacks RUFFNUTT, Cesar, and posts under the name George Patton.
    He just can't figure out which way he's politically bent.
    He'll be agreeing with himself, soon, saying "good post".

      Correction: There are others who make fun of your t-a-rd friends. You're aware that there are 6 billion people on this planet right and I surely can't be the only on here who finds your friends annoying? Maybe you guys should get a free skype account or something, so you can chit chat about stuff there. All in favor say "aye"

    Well, I guess you will need to look elsewhere for comic relief for the 2012 campaign.

    What kind of dim wit wastes their time hacking to post comments not of that person's opinion. Oh, right, must be a republican.

      Actually I'm an independent who hates narrow minded partisan twits that base their opinions off what the corporate media feeds them. Really you people should be apologizing to the rest of us who are caught in the middle of a moron sandwich. Not the troll's fault you make it so easy. Lol
