So Trump is betting his whole election future on the birther issue?
When he is proven wrong on this issue and cannot find any proof Obama was not born in Hawaii, he is 100% done. He will look like a nutjob (more than he does already).

I cannot believe this guy is betting everything on this!

7. What else does he have to bet on? I'd say it's his best shot.

12. somebody brought this up earlier
There is no way in hell he is running. If he runs he would have to disclose his net worth. The Donald (and his thrice bancrupt casinos) is not going to disclose his income and prove that he is exaggerating his wealth.

He is an attention whore pissed off that Sarah P is taking a piece of his scam market.

14. Trump is doing this for attention.
I doubt he actually believes the birther BS; he knows how teabaggers latch on to it and he all he wants is their attention.

I really hope he runs as a 3rd party candidate in 2012(ala Perot) Obama would win for sure then.

15. Perhaps He is Not a Real Candidate
and is just pretending to be to spread the Big Lie a bit more
while not painting any of the real candidates with it.
