There are multiple kinds of stupid.  I know plenty of people with high paying jobs that are pretty stupid on multiple levels, not to mention ignorant.

Save the children, feed the children, put the children on child apprentice.  Whatever.

Looks like Youtube took down the original video... So here it is for those that missed it.

Funny, of all the people I know that are very successful in business, not one of them was stupid. I may have disagreed with some of their opinions, or their tactics, but never did I think they lacked intelligence.

And so it is with Trump.  He is an expert of self-promotion. He rarely does anything that does not attract attention to himself, whether in business, real estate, television, building golf courses, etc. And so it is with this latest "offer" to Obama.

It would have been interesting had Obama actually produced the transcripts or records that Trump asked for, then demanded the $5 million on the spot.  Wonder why he didn't.

Probably because he realizes, like most people, that Trump is stupid...and you don't encourage stupidity.

If it were offered, you wouldn't take $5 million from someone you considered to be stupid?

I think Obama ignored the request because he has already supplied a birth certificate (under similar scrutiny). And the new request from Trump is in the midst of a major re-election campaign. And this new 'challenge' from Trump isn't going to win him any votes (of significance) by supplying such documentation. Really, if anything - Trump looks like the a-hole for blowing this up like he has. This is coming from a guy who enjoys watching Celebrity Apprentice - and gets a kick out of Trumps antics.

I agree about Trump, but why not take him for $5 mil?

Because Presidents shouldn't negotiate with idiots.

Trump should donate that $5m to Sandy relief efforts instead of being a third-rate carnival barker.

Interesting. I've just never heard so many reasons not to take $5 mil from someone and donate it to charity. Oh we'll, I'm sure there's a good reason.

There's excellent reasons and you know what they are, David. You're too smart to act dumb.

If there were disrespectful and even racist undertones like there are with the Birther and now Trascripts/Passport movements and I was already a millionaire, probably not.  If somebody randomly offered $5MM to see my transcripts I wouldn't hesitate.  But we both know that would never happen.

If I was Obama, I probably would have held a presser to publicly request that he donate the $5MM to help with the Sandy relief effort regardless of transcripts.  It would probably be the best political move he could make, which is what all of this is about anyway.

I think I found the reason for the Donald's ire. Go to the 3:00 mark.

It's best to ignore the Donald in an election year.

And didn't you notice, or did you choose to ignore, that the Donald says everything must be to his satisfaction.

Are you kidding?

The President is an intelligent man, and intelligent people ignore the Donald.

Why?

Because the Donald is only interested in one thing - himself and publicity.

Obama gave him neither.

Funny, but it still begs the question.....why would a democrat pass up the opportunity to spend someone else's money? After all....that's what they do best!

Ah, if that were only true, our deficit might be half of what it is today. But sadly, over the last 30 years or so, including Reagan, Clinton the Dem was the only one to draw a surplus one year.

[quote name="bplewis24" url="/t/62889/donald-trump-challenges-obama-stephen-colbert-responds-with-a-counter/18#post_782304"] Facts are stubborn things :-) [/quote] Yes they are.....but The Washington Times explains quite succinctly that this particular contention is nothing but myth.

    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.    
    • Simplify. Hit some solid chips. Or punches. Build from there.
