Corvus: 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.

But Obama has shown 12 years of his tax records, Romney refuses to do that. So Romney can't even match the " least documented president in history"?

Wow Romney is the worst person ever!


Romney is the worst documented presidential candidate ever. No birth certificate, no taxes, no transcripts, no passport application. History's greatest monster.

eddiesocket: Sigh. You really didn't see this dumb. Question: did anyone give two shiats when Larry Flynt made a nearly identical offer to Romney to release his IRS forms? Obama will ignore Trump. The internet will laugh at Trump. The tea Baggers will WHARRBL at Trump. And the other half of the country won't care at all.


and what does Donald Trump like more than his name in the news? Nothing. Either way, he gets a boost to his publicity and a reason to talk about himself. Sigh indeed.

NickelP: It probably won't switch anyones vote, but if he benefited from being black in any way they will blast affirmative action and the far right that is already pissed about a black president will be even more pissed. This makes them more likely to drag their ass to a polling place on election day vs ah fark it I am not voting for that rich dude or the black dude.


Sigh, you're probably right. Remember when these same people told us such things didn't matter when C-student and legacy admission George W. Bush was president?

(And to be clear, I actually agreed back then, too. Grades don't necessarily mean much for future careers. Bush was an awful president and probably would have been even if he made straight A's.)

Obviously the people on the right complaining about Obama's lack of documentation will refuse to vote for Romney riiiiiight?

OR it's some BS partisan BS that they are making two separate standards one for Obama and a lower standard for Romney.

CPennypacker: Slaxl: 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.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have as much money as you do. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my transcripts go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will dronekill you.

SUMMARY FOR PEOPLE BLOCKED FROM YOUTUBE:

Basically, Donald Trump says he'll give $5mil to a charity of the President's choosing if he releases his college applications, records, and later in the video he adds passport records, to "his satisfaction."

He starts off by saying that he was privileged to be a part of the effort to get the President to release his long-form birth certificate. But, he notes, this President is the least transparent of them all and he needs to release his college records.

Commentary: In other words, "What I did before seemed to work so I'll try it again." For those of you wondering why he would want the college records, from what I've read before, some people seem to think there will be something worthy for birthers/teabaggers in Obama's college applications, such as what he might say about his background story (e.g. "I was born in Kenya...") or what he claims regarding race (whatever difference that makes). They seem to think that he would have said some damning stuff in those applications that he doesn't want people to see now.

I think that is the gist: he wants the President to release these records by 5pm on Oct 31 which will trigger an "immediate" sending of a check (or checks) to the charity (or charities) of the President's choice. Trump says this will satisfy him "totally" (I doubt it) as well as the American people. Also, he stressed the records must be "complete" and "to his satisfaction". In other words, there is a hole in his promise of a donation to charity big enough to drive a truck through.

All that money and his staff can't even get the white balance on the camera correct?
 
2012-10-24 02:13:59 PM  
$5mil is chump change for that farktard, why not hand over $5mil preemptively to prove he's serious?

Alien Robot: CPennypacker: There is a 2% chance he would actually make this donation.

It's tax-deductible. Of course he would.


Tax deductible donations don't save you money over not donating anything at all.

GameSprocket: So Trump could be saving kids with cancer but is letting them die for political reasons?

Screw this guy! I don't suppose we can start a charity to raise $5 million, can we?

/I was already impressed, $5 million would astound me.


Or, Obama could just release the records and save a bunch of cancer-stricken children. But he's too selfish and callous to do that. It's all just politics to him!

2012-10-24 02:19:09 PM  
Sure! Let's make this an even swap: Obama releases that information, and Romney releases more tax information. Seems fair?

This country is completely farking insane.
 
2012-10-24 02:19:19 PM  
Love the Trump. Fark is an ass. This is an 'offer" you unadulterated liberal idiots, not blackmail. Obama can choose to accept it or reject it. If he has nothing to hide he will release his records. If he is covering up then he will refuse/not respond. Romney was hounded for tax records and there was no protest from idiot liberals. Level playing field? Not if you follow Fark jerkwads. Show it or shut up.
 
2012-10-24 02:19:29 PM  

feckingmorons: ourbigdumbmouth: It's a win win for Obama. 5 million for a charity? Hell yeah Pres. Obama will do that.

Yeah, while riding a unicorn and giving out government cheese.


yeah I mean he is going to cut income tax revenues by 20%,cut capital gains,eliminate estate taxes,cut corporate taxes and add 2 trillion to the defense budget and it's revenue neutral. won't cost you a thing. and it will create 12 million more jobs than the 12 million projected using Obama's plan. all of it paid for because Romney is just that brilliant.
 
2012-10-24 02:19:36 PM  

styckx: make me some tea: It seems apparent that no one gave a shiat about this Trump thing except the internet. My mom listens to talk radio all day, every day, and hadn't heard about it at all.

Because most aren't reporting about it.. Everyone finally said enough is enough


That's a good thing.

(And to be clear, I actually agreed back then, too. Grades don't necessarily mean much for future careers. Bush was an awful president and probably would have been even if he made straight A's.)


The same people that had no problem with a legacy C student who obviously took a space at Harvard from someone who was more qualified are foaming at the mouth at the prospect that an Honor student at Havard might have gotten in through affirmative action (Obama).

/President Obama graduated from Harvard with higher honors than Willard Mitt Romney did.
 
2012-10-24 02:19:49 PM  
Also, (and I'm sure this idea has been posted upthread)....

This is a PERFECT opportunity for some notable wealthy Democratic supporter, such as George Clooney or Stephen Spielberg, to offer $10 million for Mitt to release the last 10 years of his tax records.

10 for 10!! 10 for 10!!! 10 for 10!!!! 10 for 10!! 10 for 10!!! 10 for 10!!!! 10 for 10!! 10 for 10!!! 10 for 10!!!! 10 for 10!! 10 for 10!!! 10 for 10!!!! 10 for 10!! 10 for 10!!! 10 for 10!!!! 10 for 10!! 10 for 10!!! 10 for 10!!!!

I think your average voter is much more interested in Mitt's tax records of two years ago than they are of Obama's 30-year-old school transcripts. 

And, once again, the Hair does his part for the Democratic Party
 
2012-10-24 02:19:49 PM  
Could it be Obama put "born outside the country" on his college applications? Same with his passport?

Whatever, Trump said he would write the check. He didn't say he would have the money in the account to cover it.

It's a win-win for Trump. I'm sure he already gives a certain amount to charity for tax purposes. Instead of giving to his causes, he gives to Obama's. Net output = same amount he would have paid anyway.

Remember how Bloom County ended?

Donald Trump gets severely injured by his own yacht dropping its anchor on him by accident, and his brain is put into Bill the Cat's body to save him. Trump is then ostracized by his wife, financial empire, and is reduced to eating raw turnips to survive. He then pulls himself together, claws his way back to financial greatness, buys the comic strip, and fires everyone (receiving a pie in the face from Opus when he announces this).

And somehow it's more believable and less insane than the reality of this sack of shiat.
 
2012-10-24 02:21:11 PM  

Solchie: What is the deal with people demanding his college transcripts? What mysteries to they think they hide? College transcripts are not the holy grail, and aren't going to reveal anything Earth-shattering. "OMG.. he only got a C in the 3D art class he took his sopohomore year! Get the pitchforks!"

I can only assume that Trump believes he has found a way to make money by publically being an asshole (well, a larger asshole that usual).


They want to prove that he was an average student that benefited from affirmative action candidate in college. Because if affirmative action is what got him into college that proves that it was affirmative action that got him the presidency.

I'm not one to hear dog whistles, but in my book, anyone who uttered the words "birth certificate" after 2009 is flat out a white supremacist, Trump included.

This makes me hear the words "transparent, like other presidents" a little differently.....

FTFY 

Sadly, the "average voter" isn't here debating, they're making right-turns from the left lane and trying their hardest to figure out how to open child-proof bottles.

Winning the vote of "average voters" is a marketing campaign of a face with a passing link to one overarching political ideologies.
