Trump Will Endorse Romney

Donald Trump has confirmed that he will endorse Mitt Romney's GOP presidential bid. He says he made the decision after getting to know Romney after meeting with him several times in the past few months.

He also cited Romney's performances in presidential debates and his tough stance on China as reasons.

Trump was set to announce his support for the Massachusetts governor Thursday afternoon in Las Vegas.

He confirmed the endorsement while speaking with reporters gathered at his Las Vegas hotel for the announcement.

Trump has said negative things about Romney in the past. But he said his comments were a reflection of not knowing Romney well enough.

Trump also said he would not run for president as an independent if Romney becomes the GOP nominee.

    Obama goes to spin again to fool those to get votes , Obama Statement - "I'm sending this Congress a plan that gives every responsible homeowner the chance to save about $3,000 a year on their mortgage, by refinancing at historically low interest rates. No more red tape. " Reality check: The president's plan appears to be a significant expansion of previous efforts to help homeowners refinance their mortgages. The problem, as many homeowners know, is that many homes are worth less than the mortgage payoff — making it difficult to refinance. When your home lost money and can can not sell it for a profit , or can not get to take advantage of interest rates that are now below 4%. Obama says the Gov't would pay for the program with a new fee on banks, but Eric Belsky of the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University said it's unclear how the program will be an improvement. "As always, the details need to follow , That never do "

    Eric Holder testifies today on Capitol Hill, with recent threats of being held in ‘Contempt of Congress’ from Chairman Issa, the Obama loving mainstream liberal media decides not to cover the live hearings, which are of the utmost importance to this nation as far as we Americana's are concerned. Now, if this had been a republican administration we all know the hearings would have wall-to-wall coverage on CNN and all the Liberal networks 24/7.

    I wonder if those good people at ACORN are going to pick all 30 of us up again on Martin Luther King dr downtown and drive and bus us all around town again to vote for Obama '6' times at '6' different voting places again for all day free Tuna sandwiches , a few beers , a pack of butts and 7 free lottery tickets. Hep they handed me a card to use these names , Julius Caesar , Ronald McDonald , Elmer J. Fudd , Josy Wells , Archie Bunker , & Wile E. Coyote. These people at ACORN sure did pay good last time in free stuff. They sure wanted that Obama man to win! Them ACORN people must like him that Obama man. LOL fact stranger then the fiction? Funny Lavon talks about voting math? LOL

        Wow, what did they beat you up on the playground for today? Did you wear you Belhaven white boot on your head again? Vermin Supreme, look, you kind of stand out as...different when you do that. Did they take you lunch money away again, as usual, repeatedly? Use Obama food stamps, that should keep them from doing it again.

        You poor confused soul. Making accusations of identity...then posting of a mental problem..sad. Well, let me tell you about a new and growing concern in America that is all over the country that has gotten serious enough, the CDC is even cringing, yeah, you heard of it...Libterdialitis. Yes, I said it and its need treatment for it now while you are still using your Xbot and eating twinkies that you can still find under your couch cushions. It aflicts the very young and turns them into zombies. You know the pain you feel everyday from the pain of knowing the king of zombies, Obimbo, it over in 2012. And your final act of desperation, part of libterditis...lash out and acuse. Even Michelle is aware of the danger and wants to add a tax on its use. In fact, its worse and more additive than sugar, tobacco and alcohol...its the sugar in your koolaid. Thats right, the amount of sugar causes libterditis. Its when you try to make something taste better for others to swallow...and it simply doesn't work due to...reality. So in your name I will donate money to your cause in your name to LEFTY...Libterditis Educational For Totally You! Hopefully, its not too late. I am doing it for the children, old people and impoverished cell phone users....

          Ha ha, James is right, you better see someone about your Obama Derangement Syndrome! You cannot make a single post without referencing President Obama. If the weatherman predicts rain, according to you, it's Obama fault. See someone ASAP.

    There is no mathematical way that Willard will ever beat Obama. Willard won Florida with what, 600,000 votes? Obama got 4 million in 2008. LOL!! Face reality folks. Willard is a plant for the Democrats, it's a for sure win and you fools took the bait LOL!

      Well, if you take the square times the 4 million votes, divide by the cosine of pie, you find Obama only has two votes, yours and Barlows.

    I fail to see where his, "Trump's endorsemen­t," causes media chaos. His endorsemen­t to Romney means absolutely nothing. One is a proponent of the birtha movement against the president, and the other person, Romney, is nothing more than a stooge. If he had been really, really smart, he would have thanked Trump and graciously refused the endorsemen­t. In that one moment, I forgot that Romney will do almost anything to become president. In that moment, I also realized that this guy isn't presidenti­al material anyway. For a presidenti­al hopeful to suggest that I'm not worried about the poor, but the middle-cla­ss instead, is off his rocker. A presidenti­al hopeful would be worried and/or concerned with all American's regardless of their ethnicity and station in life. I also thought it ironic that the president was attending a prayer breakfast during this period, and his remarks were in direct opposition to that of Romney.
