Weaver95: I think people aren't voting for Romney, they're just voting against Obama...which isn't going to help Romney at all. in fact, that's going to actually hurt the GOP more in the long run. even if Romney wins (unlikely but still...follow me on this one) he won't be able to unify his own party behind his agenda...whatever the hell THAT is...
Corvus: Krymson Tyde: I tweeted him asking he make the same offer to Romney for his releasing 10 years of federal tax returns.Yeah, I can't think of anything in these Obama's record that would make any difference. I can think of thing in Romney's tax returns that would.This is great by the way. It looks very desperate with no actual thing that even hurts Obama. It's also win/win. Obama can ignore it and it won't hurt him and he could give his records up and it will look good for him.Wow this is i stupid. Did he not think this through?
Treygreen13: ManateeGag: where is Trump getting $5 million?Trump fluctuated wildly between "enormously wealthy" and "in bankruptcy court". It's possible he has $5 million right now.
sodomizer: StewMcG: "The Donald" has offered to donate $5 million to Obama's charity of choice if he'll release his college transcripts/records and his passport records.That's reasonable.Obama is our least documented president in history.
Anti_illuminati: macdaddy357: Why does he have a dead rat on his head?Who said it was dead?
bigbadideasinaction: Killer Cars: If his "October Surprise" was to say a bunch of things so stupid that my IQ dropped five points just listening to it, then congrats Donald; this is a resounding success.If it drops below 70, then you might spontaneously become a Republican, so it's a worthwhile gambit, I say.

xtragrind: Obama was a terrible student in college and benefited greatly from affirmative action.
BeatrixK: mightybaldking: What's stupid about this is no one keeps those records.I have a degree, and I could mail in for a transcript. No problem. I have no clue about my application. Once I was accepted, the application ceased to matter.I have never kept a copy of my passport application. I handed it over to the dour clerk on the other side of the counter. I've got one current passport, and one expired one.Even if Obama wanted to comply, I doubt he could.Yeah - that's what kinda kills me about the birthers: Are they completely unaware as to how said process works?
physt: Is this blackmail? He just making an offer. It's a stupid offer but it's still just an offer.
skullkrusher: eddiesocket: skullkrusher: kvinesknows: "If all records are given to my satisfaction." nice caveat. which basically means that no matter what he turned over it would not be good enough.I think this is a win-win for Trump either way.If BO doesn't give in, Trump gains notoriety as the man who proved that BO is so afraid of his records being made public that he won't release them for charity.If BO does give in, he is the man who gains notoriety for getting the President to release these records.In Trump's mind, publicity is an end unto itself. Actually kinda well played on his part for that reasonI really thought you weren't this dumb. Damn.So dumb that you can't even put into words why, huh? Shocking.
udhq: "...transparent, like other presidents..."
ManateeGag: where is Trump getting $5 million?
halfof33: Does everyone else note the similarities between this stunt and the insipid "Give Joe the Bird" campaign?
hdhale: You know Trump doesn't ask questions he doesn't think he has an answer for and something resembling facts to back it up.
Gentoolive: Thankfully we only have a few weeks left of lolbama's coverup's and we can put this all behind us.
hippyneil: frenchcheesemuseum: THE ADMINISTRATION DOES NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS.This implies that Trump invokes a state of terror. I'm not sure that is the case.
macdaddy357: Why does he have a dead rat on his head?
Aldon: President Obama is too smart to take this seriously (wrestling with pigs and all that....). But it would be fun if he said"OKay, I will release those records if Willard Romney and you release ALL the records I have released already (tax and birth certificates) and you then both release with me the same additional records you are asking for....plus you make it 50 million, c'mon it's for a good cause!"
Tigger: If Trump's effective tax rate is 50% then his accountant should be jailed for incompetence.It isn't and you know it isn't.
Renart: xtragrind: Obama was a terrible student in college and benefited greatly from affirmative action.Even if this was true (and the fact that Obama made Law Review suggests that it is not), so what? He's been president for four years and was a senator before that. You can decide whether or not to vote for him based on what he's done. Who the hell would vote for him right now but wouldn't if they found out he once got a D or benefited from Harvard's desire to have a more diverse law school?
Corvus: So what does Mitt Romney think about this? HAHAHAHA
CPennypacker: bigbadideasinaction: Killer Cars: If his "October Surprise" was to say a bunch of things so stupid that my IQ dropped five points just listening to it, then congrats Donald; this is a resounding success.If it drops below 70, then you might spontaneously become a Republican, so it's a worthwhile gambit, I say.[bureau.comandantina.com image 316x824]

Frozboz: He should release all records the day after the election. Trump never said he had to do it before.
ProfessorOhki: ^^^ This ^^^ The only thing that's been consistent about Romney is that he hasn't once been Obama.
Treygreen13: Frozboz: He should release all records the day after the election. Trump never said he had to do it before.You didn't watch the whole video, did you?
NickelP: Treygreen13: ManateeGag: where is Trump getting $5 million?Trump fluctuated wildly between "enormously wealthy" and "in bankruptcy court". It's possible he has $5 million right now.Trump's name has value. It is debatable if this increases it by 5 mil but if he refused to pay up that would be awful for his brand. Assuming Obama did this, which he won't, I think it is more likely he tries to weasel out of it by saying the full documents weren't released or whatever but since he is an honest guy and a better man than Obama he will stick to his side of the deal. That or he write a big fake check that is tied to some holding company and it never clears. He claims he paid it and it is just a legal problem that will be resolved while said holding company spirals through bankruptcy courts for the next 5 years.
