Speaking at CPAC, Donald Trump said Mitt Romney lost a race he should have won and implied Jeb Bush would be a similar candidate.  He also came out against the Common Core.

“Common Core is bad.  Bad!  Second amendment is good, very good!” Trump pronounced. (Was the Biblical echo intentional?) Trump went on to denigrate Jeb Bush’s chances: “Jeb Bush is in favor of Common Core, weak on immigration. . .I don’t see him winning, I don’t see there is any way.”

Players of the CPAC Drinking Game would have downed quite a few on the “Secure the Border” count.

In the Q&A with Sean Hannity, Trump reaffirmed his opposition to gay marriage: “I am for traditional marriage, I think it’s a state’s rights issue, not a judge issue, a voter issue.”
