You seem to be hell bent to smear him is all I'm saying.
My god, we may actually agree on something.
I can live with Fred Thompson or Duncan Hunter.
Joined at the hip with his best political friend, John McCain.
Origanal co-sponsor of McCain-Feingold-Thompson, the bill from whence came McCain-Feingold. The Thompson version was even worse than what was passed into law.
All this is is one more sign that John McCain's goose is cooked.
Hey, full disclosure, my husband is 20 years older than I am and I am about to tell you a huge secret....IT'S GREAT TO MARRY A MAN WHO SO APPRECIATES HOW YOUNG YOU ARE! But that's neither here nor there. More power to him. I'm just commenting what a dilemma this will be for the moralists here who demand complete moral superiority from the candidate they will vote for.
I gotta go with ya here.
I don't expect my candidate to go with me 100% of the time, but I DO expect them to go with me 80% or so. And that's FAR more than I'd get with a rudy/mccain.
I looked over that list of votes. The one on violent videos caught my eye - it's not the way I'd have wanted that vote to go. But who's going to vote with me on EVERY issue? I don't expect that.
But voting against my stands on immigration, gun-control, abortion etc is beyond the pale which is why I wouldn't vote for any of the top tier R's running currently and I WOULD vote for Fred.
No. Freds not perfect as far as my pet issues go, but he's FAR above the rest of the pack that are running to my way of thinking and i'd vote for him in a heartbeat.
As far as the women? Hey. The biggest problem with Clinton was that he couldn't hold to an oath whether it was his oath to his wife, his oath to a court, his oath to the military or his oath as President of the US.
I don't hear it said that Fred dicked around on his wife while they were married. I hear that there was a long stream of women AFTER his divorce and before the next marriage.
SO WHAT? I'd do that as well if I could. And I refuse to let that distract me from his stands on issues. As long as he's not doing anything truly revolting, immoral or illegal, his private life is his own and not ours to peer into.
Let the guy have a private life for cryin out loud people!
< /end rant>
But he's also a Law and Order conservative
Although I have always liked Fred Thompson it really stuck in my craw that, as head of the Senate Committee investigating the Clinton Chinese fund raising scandals, he let the Clintons get off so easy. They should have been indicted for treason and we wouldn't be facing the prospect of their return to power.
Speaking of Barack, I wonder if a tune could be devised regarding his delinquent parking tickets, to the Beatles tune "Lovely Rita, Meter Maid"?
You know what, I COULDN'T CARE LESS. Really. I want a President who will kick some Muslim ass. I was being sarcastic. And by the way, compared to him, she was young shen they married. Still 24 years younger than he is. Always will be!
How this might be explained on L&O:
Jack McCoy: You're leaving, Arthur?
DA Arthur Branch: I've been asked to work in Washington...
Post #13 on this thread seems to contradict that assertion.
Me neither. He's "pro-choice," one of the guys who gutted the First Amendment, and I'll bet you a buck you ain't gonna like what you learn about his stance on immigration. He's John McCain's best friend and political alter ego.
See post #67.
You are so cool. I always said you were cool, even if your screen name does remind me of "An American Werewolf in London."
Can you confirm he's for abortion?
He made a couple of good votes, yep. But he's always run as a "pro-choicer" as far as I know. Unless he's going to try to pull a Romney.
