Donald Trump is no conservative

He just plays one on TV.

Donald Trump praised President Obama in 2009 in his book “Think Like A Champion” and on CNN’s Larry King Live.

Trump wrote of Obama in his book, “what he has done is amazing.”

Trump added, “the fact that he accomplished what he has—in one year and against great odds—is truly phenomenal.”

Trump also wrote he thought Obama “has the mark of a strong leader” and said Obama’s comments on the economy “have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level.”

“Well, I really like him. I think that he’s working very hard. He’s trying to rebuild our reputation throughout the world. I mean, we really have lost a lot of reputation in the world. The previous administration was a total disaster, a total catastrophe.

I think he’s sort of a guy that just has a wonderful personality, a good speaker, somebody that people trust… I think that he’s really doing a nice job in terms of representation of this country… I think he’s doing a really good job.”

Speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in December 2009, Trump also said:

“I think he’s [Obama] doing great. I think Hillary’s a great appointment. I think that some of the others are just great appointments… I think he’s doing a great job.”

But then the self centered Trump thought about running for president against Obama in 2012 so he had to back track.

In a 2011 interview with Sean Hannity, less than 15 months after praising Obama, Trump reversed course:

“Look, he’s been a horrible president. I always said the worst president was Jimmy Carter. Guess what? Jimmy Carter goes to second place. Barack Obama has been the worst president ever. The history of this country, Barack Obama is number one.”

This interview came on the heels of months of speculation as to whether Trump would make a run for the White House in 2012. Earlier that year, Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), at which he implied he was considering a run:

“America is missing quality leadership. I am well acquainted with winning.”

If that does not convince you, just look how highly he thinks of Nancy Pelosi.

The above-fold headline story reads: ‘Jubilant Democrats Assume Control on Capitol Hill.’ The photo: Nancy Pelosi, a newly-minted House Majority Leader, shaking her gavel at the speaker’s chair alongside a crowd of children, in front of an American flag.

The note says:

“Nancy–

You are the greatest!

Good luck–

Donald”

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
