Donald Trump Fires Himself From Presidential Aspirations

God sits high and looks low on His children, I tell ya!
One of the best news stories of the day involves Donald Trump and his decision NOT to run for president of the United States. Yayy!!!
Donald Trump dropped out of the presidential contender race today, at least eight months before the first 2012 primary contest. He cited business reasons as the explanation for backing out. His NBC show, Celebrity Apprentice, was renewed for another season and made him ineligible to compete.
Of course, he said that he will throw him support behind the candidate of his choice, not-so-subtly saying that it wasn’t President Obama:
“I look forward to supporting the candidate who is the most qualified to help us tackle our country’s most important issues and am hopeful that, when this person emerges, he or she will have the courage to take on the challenges of the Office and be the agent of change that this country so desperately needs,” said Trump in a written press statement.
It’s not like I thought he would win, but still. Sarah Palin actually made it to the general election ballot in 2008 and was a few million votes away from being second in command of the country. That lets me know we CANNOT be idle and always need to be on guard.
