In A Statement That Surprised No One. Now With More Words Than Necessary to Explain it All.
In a statement that surprised absolutely no one, Donald Trump decided not to run for President. Now here are more words than are necessary to explain it all. Few took it seriously, though I was happy to participate in an interview with him tomorrow that he abruptly canceled Friday. In any event, I actually do think he took the idea to run seriously.

With Birther Issue Resolved, Trump to Set Sights on China and Taxes – HUMAN EVENTS
My colleague Tony Lee has the latest on Donald Trump. Trump isn’t going to let China go. Potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump essentially forced President Obama to release his long form birth certificate today.
