Donald Trump and his ego had a chat with the Des Moines Register on Friday, one where he shared his fantasies with them.

No, not those kind. Just shut off that dirty mind of yours until I get to the Sarah Palin post. No, these were the kind where Trump pretends he's so much more important than he actually is, and has so much more power than he actually does.

"I was leading in every poll. ... I regret that I didn't stay in," Trump told the Register. "I would've won the race against (President Barack) Obama. He would've been easy. Hillary (Clinton) is tougher to beat than Obama, but Hillary is very beatable."

He in turn criticized Romney for not triumpihng over a vulnerable Obama.

"He failed. He choked. He's like a deal-maker that didn't close the deal. He shouldn't be running again. He had a great opportunity to win against a president that was absolutely lame, and he didn't do it," Trump said. "The 47 percent statement, which was a disaster, is not going away. Romneycare is not going away. All of his problems are not going away. He should get out and get out quickly."

On Bush, he added: "Frankly we've had enough of the Bushes. We're bushed out."

But fear not, ardent Trump watchers: A decision could come by the summer.

Yes, Donald Trump, who now questions whether Ted Cruz could be ineligible to run for President because of his Canadian birth, thinks he could have beaten President Obama in 2012.

I'll bet he believes in flying pigs who fart rainbows, too. If he had talked much more, he probably would have shared his admiration for Sarah Palin and the Grifters, too.
