[quote="cwtcr hokie"]Sorry but Trump built businesses and has a track record beside his tv show. Oprah has a tv show and a production company, not near the track record of Trump


Oprah was born poor and has built a business empire near the same net worth as Donald Trump. How exactly is she "not near the track record of Trump."?

Don't get me wrong, I don't think she's a good candidate but I sure as crap don't think Donald Trump is either.


what companies has she run successfully beside her production company which was based off her own show. She became wealthy by being a tv talk show host for a long time

if that is the determiner we should run david letterman


She has built her own business empire worth $3 billion. Why is that different from Trump building a business empire worth $3 billion? I'd argue, because she was born poor and he was born in an affluent family, that her feat is much more impressive and worthy using your own limited criteria. Why is her $3 billion business empire not as impressive as his? I'm sure you have great logic, just explain it to us.


Not downplaying her accomplishment...but has any of her success occurred outside of her television show persona? Serious question, I don't know. If her success is a (mostly) one trick pony and paying smart people to invest the one trick pony $, that would certainly be less impressive. Do you seriously think Oprah could stand up and talk about finance, trade, and business like Trump or Bloomberg?

I don't think she runs because she has a very, very controlled image which would be utterly destroyed if she had to be questioned or debate someone regarding politics.


Not to question your use of language, but why do people feel the need to write what they are not doing, just before writing the thing that they write that they are not doing.


If you want to bicker over word choice that's fine, but my point was clear.[/quote]

It’s rather beta.

I think Trump was the one person Hillary could have beaten and Hillary was the one person Trump could beat.

Trump benefited from running against the most corrupt and unlikable candidate in history. He's not going to get that again.


Problem, we already had 8 years of the black prez and he did nothing for black people so thinking that she will excite that electorate is bad thinking. She may get some women but from the ones I know she is not highly thought of, just another tv talk show host. The economy is rolling, Trump may be unpresidential but he is putting american interests back out in front and he will get alot of support from the economy alone. She comes on talking about how everything should be free, ok, but those people do not bother to vote
Trump is making the blacks work. They don't like him, he's too much like Reagan by expecting able bodied people to work.

On that, Kristol is probably correct.
But so did the Jonestown Massacre guy.

She will NOT put her precious little life through the meat grinder that is required. She’s just this week’s shiney object distraction.

Hey! Look! Hillary!’s foundation is back under investigation!
Bernie’s utopian Venezuelans are eating cardboard boxes and stray cats because of socialism.
Dems admit that immigration is all about the votes
Barack’s nuclearized Iran is undergoing street riots to change leadership
National debt is absurdly out of control (thanks, liberals!!)
Hollywood leftists are all rapists or rape enablers..

Liberal failures splattered all over the kitchen like an uncovered blender, but hey...Oprah. :lol:

Hoof looks at all that liberal failure as "progress", they're an odd lot.
