    He's not going to run. He's just indulging this talk to generate buzz for his Baywatch movie.
    I like the guy. He's a great workout inspiration. But he's not a politician and I doubt he ever will be.

    The guy is universally beloved. If he runs for office then he gives that up.
    I'm not so sure. What are they going to attack him for that will have any effect? And I had forgotten that he appeared at the 2000 convention (though mostly in a non-political manner). I wonder if he's STILL registered GOP, or if that would change. Surely he can't try to primary Trump.

    But at this point, I feel like I can always say "stranger things have happened."

    Do you think that'll sell the "open borders outsourcing" policies of the democratic party better than old white women?

    ........MURDOCH: I think we can show to the public the benefit of having migrants and the jobs that go with them.

    So we’re once again talking about major corporations lobbying congress to ignore the will of the people.

    But Murdoch completely sidesteps the fact that importing migrant workers does not mean importing “bright and intelligent people”, it means importing people to do bad and cheap labor, so companies can cut labor costs and pass them on to the taxpayer funding the social services for the migrants. That’s already the situation that exists today.

    I’m all for importing millions of bright and intelligent people, though perhaps not during a major recession. But that’s not what either Democrats or Republican big business advocates want. What they want are cheap and easy people, who can be exploited on the job and at the voting booth. That’s why immigration quotas look the way they do. That’s why it’s much easier for people from the Third World to move here than for Europeans.

    Immigration “reform” has become a euphemism for open borders with Mexico. And you only need one look at some of what’s going on in Mexico and now in border states to see why that’s a bad idea. This doesn’t bother CEOs who live in gated communities, get driven to work in limousines and think they’re immune from the problem. Whose exposure to Mexico is through high end resorts and servile waiting staffs who are happy to have a job. And that’s exactly the culture they think they’re bringing to America. Cheap labor catering to their whims. They have no idea what reality is, and they don’t care.

    We have lowered the bar so low..I would not be surprised if we used the "hot or not" scale to evaluate a candidate. Anyone would be better than Trump and the ghastly politicians we have now.

    Ever see his diet plan? It's insane. Seven meals a day, like 5000 calories. But he gets up and works out at 4 AM every day.
    His cheat days are epic. One of them he ate a dozen chocolate chip pancakes, 4 whole pizzas, and 20 brownies.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey and Southern Dad

    Apparently "many" do not seem to agree with you on this last point.

    Do you think he is "natural" or performance enhanced? He has some serious muscles.

    Polls are just polls...manipulated statistical data. IMO...he would never get my vote. He is a disgrace to this Country and an embarrassment that will take years to live down.

    I don't know. There's probably some enhancement going on. It's not like Hollywood drugs tests. The WWE does (at least to some extent) but he hasn't been a regular performer with them for years. I'd say Christian Bale is definitely a juicer with how fast he bulked up from The Machinist to Batman Begins.
