What I find amusing, is that a candidate for POTOUS usually has all his Physical records disclosed..all except for Bill Clinton, LOL.

BJ fired the WH doctor who wanted to see those records prior to giving him an "allergy shot". (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)

BINGO, Dog!

Neil was just on now- showing part of his interview with Fred...he followed up by saying Fred brought this up to get it out in the public- see how the public reacts to it...and then....if we don’t freak out...he “just might run”

WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO FRED!!!!

God BLESS this man and his family..

Attempt to make a political point about Fred’s illness from a Mitt supporter.

Thompson: “I have a normal life expectancy and feel fine.”

So, should he just sit at home and wait to die? We’re ALL dying day by day and like Thompson said, NO ONE CAN TELL THE FUTURE!

God bless Fred. I will add him to my prayer list behind Tony Snow, Elizabeth Edwards and Tammy Faye Messner.

I hope he gets the treatment he needs and will do what is best for him and his family and not let overzealous people try to force him to do anything that might be detramental to his health. Now is the time for rest and recuperation.

Condolences and prayers for a great American.

I hope everything works out well for him. There are many different types of lymphomas which different treatment procedures and with different prognoses.

Hodgkins is actually the only curable lymphoma. IF I had to have cancer as an adult, Hodgkins lymphoma would be the ones I would choose

If it is Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia it is not that dramatic, my father was diagnosed with CLL more than 25 years ago.

I’ve got to say, there does seem to be a disturbing trend emerging on FR.

A level of decency and respect MUST prevail toward ALL our potential candidates. Political passions are fine but it's really been inappropriately ugly here on some threads IMO. I hope it stops.

“Attempt to make a political point about Fred’s illness from a Mitt supporter.”

If you read my old posts, you would see that I’m supporting Fred since I don’t think Mitt can win.

And please dispense with the “let’s not talk about politics” issue- this disease doesn’t look serious enough to be considered a real personal tragedy, but it does look serious enough to be a political hindrance. Fred brought the news into the political arena this morning- he made it public.
