Is Donald Trump even smarter than he thinks? Probably not, he thinks he is pretty smart. But his use of the missing Obama birth certificate issue might be smarter than many of us have realized. Is this his way of getting rid of not only Barack Obama but finishing off Mitt Romney?
Maybe it is that we are smarter than we think. But a funny thing dropped into the Big Pink head as we prepared for our sometime “Friday Follies” jovial article, April 15 edition. As we have previously stated it is possible that Donald Trump was just throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks when he first started fooling around with running for president in this election cycle. Trump has toyed with the idea in previous election cycles but backed away and that is one of the reasons cited by JournoListers as an excuse for not taking The Donald seriously this time.
Fair enough. It is very possible that The Donald was just putting himself out there, getting some publicity, throwing out the bait to see if anything would bite. Then came the polls from New Hampshire and Trump was tied for second and Mitt Romney on first. Placing a close second to Mitt Romney in New Hampshire was big news because Mitt Romney is the presumed Republican nominee, he’s a one-time neighbor Massachusetts governor, and Romney must win big in New Hampshire or die once again when the Republican primaries move south.
Mitt Romney must win New Hampshire big and Mitt Romney knows it. The moment the poll was published which showed The Donald moving up along the rail on The Mitt, the Romney people began to dump dirt on Trump. Indeed when Romney announced he’s running for president he took a direct shot at Trump by attacking the birth certificate issue thereby making himself a “serious” candidate in the eyes of Big Media.
So here we have Donald Trump demanding to see a birth certificate from Barack Obama and denouncing in the strongest terms the possibility that the Constitution has been violated and saying someone who is not legally qualified to be president is now president – while on the other side we have Mitt Romney denouncing the birth certificate issue:
