Oh, I know -- "He's too pushy ... too controversial ... too flamboyant." Oh, yes, I can hear the multitude of used-up GOP political hacks dismissing the idea in unison. But hold on: It's Trump who has years of experience with a successful television show geared toward the average bear who watches network television. The man not only is bright as can be and obviously more knowledgeable about politics than most entrepreneurs, he also knows how to sell virtually anything to anyone.
And the wealthy Trump can connect with those so-called Reagan Democrats (now more like Reagan independents), who just can't stomach the to-the-manor-born style of the wealthy Romney. They like the more rough-and-tumble, "say it as he sees it" Trump.
I'm sure I could poll this idea and find some result to justify going in a safer direction. But sometimes even pollsters who are ex-politicians know that the gut can be stronger than any survey's "margin of error."
It is obvious that someone has to capture the public's attention and give the reasons to fire President Obama. Why not give that job, with a little dose of humor added, to a man who knows how to do it.
Roll the dice, and let Trump save this sinking disaster of a campaign. Based on what I am seeing, the Romney campaign has nothing to lose ... absolutely nothing.
