Dudes and Dudettes…I don’t know about you but via my view-finder in life there is no better attack-dog to get the conservative message out there than the ‘Trumpster’ himself other than Sununu when it comes to handling the media…they take no prisoners and go for the kill when they’re confronted by the talking-heads on the left, which is about 99% of the time these days. See if you agree with this strategy from the Romney team when it comes to winning the ‘Rust-Belt State’ voters…it’s very interesting and seems to be plans well made. This is via Breitbart:

In an article (“The Trump Effect”) published in August’s Newsmax magazine, Ed Klein, author of the best-selling book The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, reports that an insider who attended a retreat with Mitt Romney’s brain trust in June said the campaign plans to “unleash” Trump in rust belt states to appeal to white working class voters who do not have college degrees. Those states would include Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

Trump and Romney are both wealthy, but Trump does better than Romney in appealing to working class voters, and part of that reason is because Trump gives off the impression that he means what he says.

“A lot of people say things in private that they’re afraid to say in public. Not me,” Trump told Klein. “I’m straightforward and fearless. I don’t equivocate. People want to hear the truth, and I’m known for my candor.”

Klein writes that “with less than a hundred days until the general election, new evidence is emerging that Trump could be poised once again to rattle the chinaware” and notes Trump may be deployed as Romney’s “anti-Buffett.”

Of course, Obama has often used Buffett’s secretary in his messaging on taxes, and Klein notes Trump would be an “anti-Buffett” because Trump — like Buffett — is a successful business person but, unlike Buffett, thinks “Obama is a terrible president.”

A Newsmax poll conducted by pollster John Zogby found Trump appealed most to “middle-income Americans” who “are more likely to be swing state independents.”

These voters also love the tea parties, according to the Newsmax poll.

Among voters who support Trump, 65% support the Tea Party and 43% earned less than $35,000.

Zogby said these voters are “what remains of the blue-collar working class in the united states, not entirely, but predominantly.”

“Anything that can move voters one way or another can be significant,” Zobgy said.

Trump is aware of his potential political influence.

He told Klein, “I don’t know if they like me personally, but I have political influence because people respect what I say and how I say it.”

Klein writes Romney’s advisers feel they need to win two-thirds of the working class white vote, and Klein believes Trump, “based on his celebrity, personal magnetism, and the positive aspiration brand he offers, seems to gel with this group of voters.”

Klein notes “Americans are attracted to the Trump effect” and the Romney campaign used Trump to make robocalls in states like Michigan to help turn the tide on Romney’s behalf in the days before the Michigan primary.

The election may come down to how successful Romney galvanizes white working class voters to his side or how successful Obama is in giving them reasons to not vote for Romney and stay at home.

This will be one of the most important keys to the November election, and Trump’s appeal, Klein notes, may energize working class white voters who are fed up with both parties on behalf of Romney if the Romney campaign employs Trump — and his brand — strategically on the stump in key rust belt states.

ADDENDUM: Check this out, this is a short read…but right to the point via Trump Style. Methinks you’re going to agree with what he puts on the table…then again I could be wrong.

So friends…what say you, do you think this is great strategy, or do you think this may fail?

  1. bigtimer,
    I think it’s a great idea, even if people dislike someone they are still inclined to listen to them if they are being told the truth, Trump has no qualm’s about getting in the gutter and that’s what Romney needs so sic em Trump.

  2. I found this over at http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/

    The Doctrine of the Three Percent.
    The Three Percent are the folks the Founders counted on to save the Republic when everyone else abandoned it.

    And we will.

    There will be no more free Wacos and no more free Katrinas.

    For we are the Three Percent.

    We will not disarm.

    You cannot convince us.

    You cannot intimidate us.

    You can try to kill us, if you think you can.

    But remember, we’ll shoot back .

    We are not going away.

    We are not backing up another inch.

    And there are THREE MILLION OF US.

    Your move, Mr. Wannabe Tyrant.

    Your move.
    And, as things begin to spin out of control, remember this:
    “All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war.” — Billy Beck, August 2009.

    From MamaLiberty over at War on Guns:
    “Here’s an idea…If nobody wants a ‘civil disturbance,’ why in heck don’t they quit disturbing us?”

    Indeed.

    What is a “Three Percenter”?
    During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.

    Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested. We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders’ Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.

    The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any futher circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders’ Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic.

    We are the people that the collectivists who now control the government should leave alone if they wish to continue unfettered oxygen consumption. We are the Three Percent. Attempt to further oppress us at your peril. To put it bluntly, leave us the hell alone. Or, if you feel froggy, go ahead AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

    The Nyberg Battle Flag of the Three Percent

    This time we are ALL Davidians. This time, we are all Jews, Kulaks, “counter-revolutionists” and “enemies of the state.” We are now a despised minority within a country no longer our own.BUT WE WILL NOT BE DESPISED.

    • Edtudo,

      As much as I admire your passion, it is misguided. No one is going to try to take your guns away from you. They might prevent you from acquiring any more, but anyone who doesn’t have one by now probably is not someone who should own one.

      If they decide to confiscate, where will they start? Out in the backwoods? Suburbs? Cities? Think this through. How many people will be dedicated to this search?

      How long will it take to search a residence until it is certain that there are no firearms present? If you hand them a pistol and an AR-15 will they stop the search? It would take decades to disarm America.

      Confiscation would be time consuming but also expensive if the searchers want to get paid. Good luck in the backwoods. Cities are more troublesome.

      Let’s imagine a house to house search in a typical inner city. RACISM!!! Do you expect law-abiding Blacks to allow thorough searches without the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Black Panthers, etc… FREAKING THE HELL OUT?

      Also, all the aspiring rap stars who are just turning their lives around would be shooting back just like the rednecks in the hills. The surviving agents of the first day of confiscation probably wouldn’t report for work the next day, let alone pursue this quest for years.

      If they could manage to disarm Chicago, I would be concerned about Texas and Montana. Until then, gun confiscation worries me as much a UFO abduction.

      • You are totally wrong in your assumption that the government won’t come after our personal guns……

        They will do it through registration…..every gun must be registered…….and then one day the government will require that we turn in every registered gun……I will absolutely refuse to register my guns……the next step will be confiscation…….

        I say we don’t give in one inch…..not one inch to people like you or the government………we are not the fools here…..the fools are the one’s who think the governement won’t come after us……

        Obongo & Holder want to come after our guns but know that is not possible right now and coming after our guns will expose them as a true commie liberals……..

          Bluto,

          While I’m usually with you 100%, I must agree with Bill’s post above. If such a search for guns ever started, it would end after one day… or at least if govt tried to take guns from individuals like you and I. No one will take my guns without the loss of life to myself or to the individuals trying to confiscate them… period.

          I will say gun owners better stock up on ammo.

    • My opinion is somewhere in the middle, I do not think it will come to overt search and seizure on a National scale. The Socialist movement will just continue to educate your kid that “guns are bad”. The media will continue to bombard the American psyche with “guns are bad”. And our government will continue to enact laws such are registration, permitting, and taxation to make it difficult to own or purchase those bad guns.

      I mean when was the last time the School field trip was to a shooting range to discuss the Second Amendment and proper use of a fire arm. What percentage of American Adults took their kids hunting last year? See it’s working, they are slowly making behavioral changes on their target audience, your kids.

      Too dangerous you say? Mixing kids and guns are you nuts!

      From 2005-2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day.

      But look what these people are doing to their babies,

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXgzFWvBWrE

      It’s OK for educators/experts to dunk your baby in a pool, but no way are they going to teach your kid gun safety, guns are bad.

      Here’s the facts comparing the mortality rate and cause of death between accidental drowning and shootings.

      “The accidental gun death rate has been falling since 1930 and US accidental gun deaths per year were down to 613 by 2007, out of the 301,579,895 people in the USA, according to the CDC.” – CDC

      That’s 613 guns vs 3,533 drownings

      Now go throw a baby in a pool

    Use anyone including Trump to get the message out. I agree strongly with Mr. Root in AWD post… Romney should agree to release more tax returns as long as Obama opens his college records for all to see.

    Anyone with half a brain knows Obummer is trying any tactic possible so he will not have to respond to his down right pathetic record as president… God knows he will rank well below Jimmy Carter.

  6. if trump hates barry as much as i do he is ok with me. saul alinsky, a inspiration for the cornhole organizer (ask larry sinclair), was friends with al capone gang and admired them. barry is a cross between both, a lying fraud corrupt marxist anti american gangster. capone wanted to get rich, not necessarily overthrow Constitution. read ulsterman report-white house insider, they have a democratic operative spilling the beans on obama regime. the guy has been right quite a bit. dancing barry is a puppet to union goons like leo gerard

    I can’t sleep so I thought I’d chime in. As for Trump, I used to think of him as a guy who was to be disliked–greedy, cruel, selfish, and everything the media told us he was.

    Then, I read some of his philosophies and watched most of the first season of The Apprentice and my opinion of him changed. I also recalled that he had lost a huge portion of his fortune but then rallied back.

    Say what you will about him, he’s upfront, accepts no excuses, looks for and nurtures excellence in others, and makes no excuses himself.

    Like BT, I agree that Trump and anyone that can be utilized to get out the good message about Romney is an asset, if you will pardon the financial parlance!

  8. Lt. Sandman says:

    Having Donald on the attack is very good strategy. He definitely says what he thinks and doesn’t care about political fallout.

    No democrat has had a two term Presidency since Roosevelt, except for Clinton. Bill didn’t have to grace or shame to go home after being caught “with his pants down”. Newt did. Newt would have made a good President a decade ago. Remember his “Contract with America”? Clinton and his party were dragged kicking and screaming to the dance and somehow managed to sort of take credit for Newt’s efforts. Then came 911 and W had to take all the heat for the sins of the past. Yikes!

    Anyway, Go Donald! We must elect Mitt and fire up the economic engine of this STILL Great Nation before it’s too late. Whining and fussing about the “Rich” and trying to build our welfare system is not the right path.

    I look forward to seeing Romney taking the oath and watching Obama sitting uncomfortably in the background. That’s going to make a picture worth framing.

  9. VDare.com, a savvy site, tells us that many older white voters weren’t enthused by McPain and stayed home in ’08, a big mistake. There are also many other contests going on. Never forfeit the game without a fight and even McPain was preferable to Hussein. This time working class whites should turn out big for Mitt, who has demonstrated his business expertise, unlike Hussein, who has never run anything but his big mouth. Liberals will always try to psych you with their phony polls. Amen to Brother Sandman and the other commenters. Trump connects with voters, stating aloud what others are scared to say.

    My wife is , what I would describe, as new to the game. She (and I), love Trump. He says what he means, but , to me, more importantly, that someone like my wife who did not track politics until Obama ran for office, says things like, “He is one of only a few who has the courage to challenge.”, “He irritates the other side but he has guts”, “A lot of people would vote for him because he is a plain speaker”. and many other comments like that.

    I say, I am tired of the weak sisters like Boehner. It is time to put a stop to the pandering of a duty free life for all the freeloaders. I do not how well received Trump would be as a VP, but I sure as he;ll would love him to do a 4 to 8 years stint as Secy of Commerce or any other important position dealing with the economy.

    In my mind’s eye, I picture Boehner and others saying–, “Oh, he is too rough, “He will not play bipartisan or try to reach across the aisle”, we must continue with pussification of the GOP.

    Debbie and I may be only a few, but Trump is among 4 or 5 people we would love to see as VP.

    Disagree with ma all you want–but Rubio, no matter what you think about him, will aid in the Hispanification of America. He won’t be as bad as the Bush’s , but that’s what will happen. Remember what a staunch conservative Linda Chavez was before she remembered she was a Latina??

    PS Something in Michelle Bachmann’s defense:::::::

    “COMMUNIST SPIES HAD SATURATED U.S. GOVERNMENT

    The opening of the KGB archives and the release of the VENONA intercepts (decoded Soviet KGB and GRU traffic) proved that in the 1950’s Senator Joseph McCarthy was absolutely right about the extensive Soviet penetration of the U.S. government in all the most sensitive sections and its danger to America. According to the KGB archives, the NKVD had 221 agents in the Roosevelt administration in April 1941 and the Soviet military GRU probably had a like number. He was proved right that the Communist Party, U.S.A., was an arm of the Soviet intelligence apparatus and the Soviet Union considered the U.S. as their “main enemy”.

    His liberal critics in academe and the mainstream media, who denied there was Communist subversion and made excuses for it, were proved absolutely wrong! This should have discredited the liberal ideology and those who mouthed it. Because the left had no answer or effective reply to the challenge McCarthy posed, they engaged in personal destruction — they smeared and demonized McCarthy because he was truth.”

    I ask myself, “Why does the DOJ have so many people,(lifers), who have jumped on the Obama wagon?”. They have been in government for years. Look at the other side–look at Border Patrol employees who are NOT in Obama’s pocket. Think back to the Lenin and Marx days of infiltrating businesses and government with communists.

    I have to be careful lest people think I believe this is a long range plan of the American Communist Party, (I DO!!) I may even be called a conspiracy theorist.

      A little more from Coulter:

      “FIVE COLD WAR HEROES DEFENDED U.S. FREEDOM

      By Ann Coulter, political analyst, attorney and author

      It is appropriate to honor the five men who did the most to defend our freedom in the last century. The names are easy to remember – they are the five men most loathed by liberals: Joseph McCarthy, J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Nixon, Whittaker Chambers and Ronald Reagan.

      McCarthy died censured and despised at 48 years old, his name a malediction. Hoover is maligned for having been a mad spymaster and is lyingly smeared as a cross-dresser – by people who admire cross-dressers. Nixon was hated for convicting Alger Hiss and hounded to resign the presidency in disgrace. Though persecuted in his day, Whittaker Chambers is not hated today only on a technicality: The MTV generation doesn’t know who he is. They’d hate him too, but it would take research. By contrast, Ronald Reagan has prevailed over the left’s campaign of lies only because the American people do remember him – so far.

      Notwithstanding the left’s fantastic lies, these men won a 50-year war because of the abiding anti-communism of the American people. These are the heroes of the Cold War, and all have been personally reviled for their trouble.”

      I believe if Michelle Bachmann stays the course , she will be proven to be correct.
