'I'm a Really Smart Guy,' Says Trump Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Apr 4, 2011, 06:44 PM

American Ego.jpgBillionaire real estate tycoon Donald Trump can’t campaign for president telling a so-called 'rags to riches' story, since he was born into a wealthy family, who pampered and spoiled him to make him the publicity-stunt-seeking businessman that he is today. So, Mr. Trump will argue that he’s "a really smart guy," because his parents paid good money to send him to elite boarding schools and a privileged university.

The Daily Collegian of Penn State University reports that, "the real estate mogul and star of The Apprentice has come out swinging, speaking at the Conservative Political Action conference in February and appearing constantly on TV for the past few weeks."

"I'm a really smart guy. I was a really good student at the best school in the country,” Trump said last week on The View, making a statement he has since repeated on nearly every other TV show he appeared on in the past week."

According to the Daily Collegian, "Trump has also figured out the easiest way to get votes from the American people – be on a reality TV show. Trump benefits from being all over TV. Sure, Huckabee and Palin are often featured on Fox News, but the country would rather vote for a candidate who has been roasted by the Situation on Comedy central."

Most likely, the writers of The Daily Show and Saturday Night Live, are sincerely hoping that Donald Trump gets the Republican nomination for President in 2012. But what’s good for comedians may not be what’s good for the GOP or the American people, since his nomination would bring an easy victory for Obama in his re-election bid.

Since being born to a wealthy family and going to privileged schools (regardless of grades) didn't stop Bush from winning the GOP nomination why should it stop Trump?

Austin: You're Bush rebuttals don't hold water. The Dallas Blog has never been recognized as a news website that promotes Bush's neoconservative policies. If you do a Google search to find articles that show the Dallas Blog supported the Iraq War then I stand corrected. But good luck with your Google search, because I myself don't recall writing any pieces calling for pre-emptive strikes in the Middle East and that includes Iran.

"The Dallas Blog has never been recognized as a news website"

Yes, that is correct.
