Meet Donald Trump 2: Envirowhacko, Executive Pay Limits, Supports Terry McAuliffe

Originally, I started this piece titled: Donald Trump: Fair and Balanced – A Look at the Good and the Bad. Unfortunately, my search found another web of lies, distortions, and policy changes. The Donald has been the #1 searched term to get to this site, mainly to the column: Meet Donald Trump: Democrat Donor, Abortionist, etc. I’ve decided to do some more research on Trump, gauging his positions/statements from 2007-2009, before he decided it was time to run/pretend to run for President. Aside from what I covered in part 1, it gets uglier.

1)  Trump Supports UN Climate Change Initiative: Donald Trump signed onto a NYT letter urging congress and President Obama to “pass legislation to effectively combat climate change following the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.” Of course, by the end of 2010 he was calling on Al gore to give his Prize back because of the global warming hoax. Another convenient policy change? A gem from the letter signed by Donald Trump: “As business leaders we are optimistic that President Obama is attending Copenhagen with emissions targets. Additionally, we urge you, our government, to strengthen and pass United States legislation, and lead the world by example. We support your effort to ensure meaningful and effective measures to control climate change, an immediate challenge facing the United States and the world today. Please don’t postpone the earth. If we fail to act now, it is scientifically irrefutable that there will be catastrophic and irreversible consequences for humanity and our planet… Please allow us, the United States of America, to serve in modeling the change necessary to protect humanity and our planet.”

2) Trump Supports Obama Executive Pay Limits. He said banks receiving taxpayer money should effectively be controlled by government pay czar. One of the problems is that many banks were forced to take bailout money that they did not want. In interview, also hinted he would support a version of the Obama stimulus with “less goodies” in there. Then managed to bash Bush and praise Obama: “Bush left him with a mess — a total mess in many different ways. I really think he’s doing the best he can, but it is trial and error.”
3) Trump upset Obama picked Biden Over Hillary for VP. Trump Supported/Donated to Hillary presidential campaign: “I don’t understand why Hillary wasn’t chosen [for vice president],” Trump said. “ She was really winning. I have a friend that came to this country and was here for the last four weeks of that whole election. He said: How did she lose? She won every primary? He didn’t understand it.” He then timidly endorsed McCain. Would he have supported Obama/Clinton? Seems like it.
4) Trump Praises Obama for his pro-business style: “I’m a big fan of Obama’s. He’s done an amazing job. Big business leans toward Republicans, but it does better under Democrats.”
5) Trump Supported Clinton Crony Terry McAuliffe for Virginia Governor, giving him $25,000.

    This may be sour grapes and all (I wasn’t popular) except there is evidence to support this: Just like in primary school class elections (and nearly all elections I have ever witnessed)it’s never about who stands most for truth, justice and the American Way (or whatever a 3rd grade class president is supposed to stand for) elections for higher office, as it were, are great big, expensive popularity contests.

    Case in point: Steve Forbes: Not much to look at, but seemed to A)Want to run for purely altruistic reasons B)Seemed like someone who said exactly what he was about C)Not a career politician (not even an atty, even better right?) D)Seemed to have some sense
    No one seemed to pay any attention to him. Why should we? He’s not one of the in crowd. His face looks sort of funny and he’s not a Rock Star.
