Will the GOP play the “Trump Card” in 2012?

Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin strongly suggests otherwise.

I'm a South Jersey gal who was raised on the outskirts of Atlantic City in the looming shadow of Trump's towers. All through my childhood, casino developers and government bureaucrats joined hands, raised taxes and made dazzling promises of urban renewal. Then we wised up to the eminent-domain thievery ... Championing liberty begins at the local level. There is nothing more fundamental than the principle that a man's home is his castle. Donald Trump's career-long willingness to trample this right tells you everything you need to know about his bogus tea party sideshow.

In his 1928 dissent to Olmstead v United States, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis famously defined privacy as "the right to be left alone." Those who are discontent with the current administration need to ask themselves if, for all the public display, Donald Trump is the viable alternative he professes to be.

I would never vote for Trump in a million years. Ever.
