Trump, the Anti-Romney?

Mary, I get your point. But watching Trump in Florida gloriously revel in attacking Fiorina, Bush, and Rubio as ‘losers’ brought a weird smile to my face.

We have never seen anything like this billionaire TV celebrity running to be Da Boss of the United States.

He says it’s hard for him to criticize his fellow Republicans as the losers they are, because he likes these folks. But, “They don’t have it. . . It’s not going to happen folks. They’re not doing what I do. I do it better than anyone else.”

After the Romney 47 percent debacle, its hard to imagine voters going for a guy who boasts—boasts—of his prowess in firing people. “I know about firing people, I fire people all day long,” he said to justify his claim that Fiorina was fired viciously and the company stock went up as a result.

But it is amazing to watch.
