interesting to see how many people will declare their support for Honore, before they see a single position on an issue from him.

What I was thinking as well. Everyone needs to remember the lessons of Colon Powell. Mere military service does not automatically equate to conservative values.

Need I mention Jim Webb of Virginia and Mad Captain Jack Murtha of Johnstown, Pa.? There are a bunch of looney lib vets. Better to wait to see if he has anything useful to say.

Vitter's infidelity is disturbing, but should conservatives automatically flush every one of their own just because they have demonstrated that they are human.

Vitter does have an admirable conservative record. Honore has "Stuck on Stupid." I am not certain I wish to gamble the future on another slogan...after all, how's that "Hope and Change" thing working?

Being receptive to the idea of the man running is hardly a declaration of support. He hasn’t said a word yet and hasn’t given any positions on anything. If he isn’t a conservative, most, if not all of those very same people would change their tune quickly.

It’s kind of like a company coming out with a new product. They advertise their product and maybe it appeals to someone. That appeal is not a commitment to buy the product and that appeal can go by the wayside in a flash when that someone hears a bad review of the product.

You see, Charles, we’re not all blind, sycophantic, devotees of candidates like you and the rest of the Romney crowd. Unlike you guys, who support a candidate based on his phony conservative veneer, people who are expressing interest in General Honore’s candidacy are attracted to the idea of a citizen politician with a military background and a penchant for telling the media to pound sand. It is tentative support pending further information and there is nothing wrong with that.
