Trumped by Trump

So, Donald Trump is back as a major player in news stories and the 2012 elections...

I guess the current season of The Apprentice ended last week, he must have free month or so.

And better Mitt Romney is pathetically treating him as a serious person, or informed person, or a person who's value isn't cheap and fleeting.

Oh, have such shit sense when it comes to judging character, or understanding humanity.

But he brought him back to national relevance.

And he's loving it, jumping right back into the birtherism, the same way he jumps into an iffy real estate deal.

Now, he wants to pretend it's no big deal. He's just a guy with an opinion?

Trump will join Romney and former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich for a campaign fund-raiser in Las Vegas on Tuesday evening. Romney's campaign also is raffling a chance to have dinner with the celebrity business magnate for supporters who donate $3 to the campaign. 
Yeah. that's more than just some guy you know. He's a backer. He's a surrogate. He's a fund raiser. He's a reference for why he should be president. So, please.

And Team Obama has fired back, with good reason.

This is all loss for Romney. He already has the Birther support. He already is the arrogant rich guy candidate. And he has plenty of money so far, and can get more without Trump. It makes no sense.

But all over conservatives are trying to deflect (Though some liberals are concerned this is an obfuscation of all the other shady activities Romney is currently involved in.). This morning on Twitter David Frum has been going full tilt trying to get people to be disgusted and focused on a dumb gaff of Obama, in regards to Poland, and seeing it has being just the same as Romney trolling to get a good Trumping. Come on.

Trump is a trifle. He's a joke. But Romney's embrace of him speaks all the more of who he is and how he work. It says nothing positive.
