In recent weeks there has been excitement surrounding potential candidates for the GOP nomination for President in 2012. With the absence of a stable, long standing forefront leader, the field is wide open, leaving room for “celebrity” candidates to take the reins. The Donald seems to be doing just that. Using a shock and awe approach, he is gaining the most notable attention of late. Dropping the gloves on taboo subjects and opening up about his true opinions is a fresh and welcomed approach. Donald Trump does have his weak points however, and many GOP members consider him a “joke candidate”. We tend to agree with this, although he is a strong business leader, he does not embody the image we desire for our nations leader. His recent rise to political fame is most welcomed though, as we now have a more interesting train wreck to watch than Sarah Palin.
