Skip to comments.Oh Yes, Fred Thompson Is Indeed Running For President

And he just got an endorsement from Human Events, which you can read here. (Full disclosure: I have written for HE in the past and expect to do so in the future. I had nothing to do with the endorsement but I fully back it for the reasons discussed in the endorsement.) Interestingly enough, this comes in the wake of an excellent performance by Fred Thompson in last night's debates in South Carolina. He was clearly the most intellectually impressive candidate on the stage. As a reward, Thompson came under a ridiculous series of attacks from Joe Scarborough and Mike Huckabee, who both decided that insults are the proper response to a substantive and cerebral performance on Thompson's part. Huckabee's performance, as a candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination, is especially depressing and deplorable.
"Stay classy"? I am not sure Huckabee knows how.
Fred or we’re dead. If Huck get’s it we’d better get used to saying “Mrs. President”. But Huck won’t get it, so calm down.
Like so many here at FR. Actually though, I would rather hear the silly insults than the even sillier anti-Fred talking points....or should I say "stalking" points. There used to be some good well thought out anti-Fred comments on this board but now it has completely rotted into mindless regurgitation of the latest hippest MSM vomit.
Great. I am happy for Fred.
He deserves a break.
He put in a good week's work, and it seems to be finally paying off.
Here's hoping the final two standing are Fred and Romney. Good pair.
Yeah, but my stomach will be twitching until I hear Huck say these words, "I gave it a good effort, but I am here today to withdraw my candidacy for President of the United States."
Do you notice that a new name shows up every few days, makes the same mindless comment over and over on a bunch of threads, and then a new one takes over?
Yes, they are truly the gnats you refer to in your graphics. I have also noticed an enormous increase in "Fredbuts." Maybe you can create a graphic for them too.
What’s a ‘Fredbut’? Is it ‘I would vote for Fred but...blah blah’?
Hmmm. What shall it say? I have a new one just waiting for the next new troll.
Don’t be a FRedbut?
Yes 22cal, a Fredbut is someone who says “I like Fred but (insert mindless Fred slam). Now there are legitimate cases where someone truly supports Fred “but” is concerned about such and such. Its pretty easy to tell the diffence, Fredbuts are stuck on MSM garbage and a Fred supporter will have a more thoughtful remark.
Politicalmom, let me think on it, and you too, and we will see what we can come up with.
FRED needs our prayers...he got all my extra money! However, I still consider every dollar as an investment in my Grandson’s future.
FRED THOMPSON - NATIONAL SECURITY EXPERIENCE (Ill protect the American people and American values, whatever it takes to stop the Islamic-Fascists including water-boarding!) - 2ND AMENDMENT ADVOCATE (Individual rights to protect their homes and property!)
INCREASE THE MILITARYS STRENGTH AND SIZE (Diplomacy through Strength and verification!)
SECURE AND SEAL THE BORDERS (Dont give sanctuary anywhere to illegals; dont employ illegals; dont rent to illegals; dont extend credit to illegals; dont give illegals rights they have no right to; report all crimes committed by illegals to ICE and immediately deport those illegals who have already committed crimes against America!) LAW AND ORDER (Enforcement of our current laws regarding illegal immigration!) DENY FEDERAL DOLLARS TO SANCTUARY CITIES (Enough is enough!)
CONSERVATIVE JUSTICES FOR SUPREMES (Great progress has been made on the Supreme Court in Bushs term. FRED was asked by President Bush to spirit Justice Roberts through the confirmation process. The next President will probably have the opportunity to seat two additional Justices. This is huge folks. FRED will nominate Justices who will interpret the Constitution, not create rights that simply do not exist and legislate from the bench!) PRO-LIFE ADVOCATE (will strive to nominate superior Justices with the eventual goal of overturning Roe vs Wade)
THOMPSON PLAN TO REDUCE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDING (Check out his detailed plan to reduce Federal spending!)
SOCIAL SECURITY REFORMER (Social Security is an entitlement program that will soon overtake the budget. The program cant sustain itself and will bankrupt future generations; FRED has detailed proposals to save Social Security and provide the added benefit of private savings accounts for younger workers!)
DEFEAT ANY DEMOCRAT OR RINO (Close your eyes and imagine the first debate between FRED THOMPSON and ANY liberal DemocRAT they put up?)
TAX SIMPLIFICATION (Reform and perhaps eliminate the IRS with a variety of choice for the tax payer!)
EDUCATION (Return education to the States. It is that simple. The NEA is the greatest enemy of our educational system!)
WONT PUT UP WITH TRUTH MANIPULATION FROM THE DB-MSM (including stupid questions by liberal moderators, and purchased political pundits)
FRED THOMPSON IS THE WE THE PEOPLE CANDIDATE (We the People asked him to set aside his personal life and step up one more time for his Country and he stepped up!)
THIRD IN IOWA, SECOND IN WYOMING (MSM still calling it a tie with McCains name in the lead FoxNews wont even mention his name if they can find a way to avoid it!)
TOTAL DELIGATES TO DATE: 6
WINNER OF SOUTH CAROLINA JANUARY 10, 2008 DEBATE HANDS DOWN!!! (In lieu of the airtime FoxNews chose to give him or not give him as the case may be. WE THE PEOPLE notice garbage like that!)
IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR MICHIGAN OR SOUTH CAROLINA OR FLORIDA OR NEVADA. CONSERVATIVES MUST UNITE NOW! A CONSERVATIVE THOMPSON REVOLUTION! ALL ABOARD THE THOMPSON VICTORY EXPRESS!
I’ve been resisting that idea....but it would be a good ticket if they can mend all the fences...and overcome Rudy.
Huck: But his support for the economically disastrous cap-and-trade fix for global warming is as bad as Sen. McCains position on the issue.
And of course they did Rudy and Ron Paul.
Which brings us back to Sen. Fred Thompson.
So it is perfectly fine to leave another candidate out of their analysis.
It is completely acceptable to condemn 2 of the 5 they deemed worthy to discuss, for their disgusting globull warming positions, but endorse the candidate that has his name on a radical piece of globull warming legislation.
It is A-OK to condemn one candidate for "stifling political free speech" but not include an original sponsor, eventual cosponsor and defender of said offense.
This election cycle stinks more and more each day.
