I think Fred is being proactive with this. Better to reveal this now than have the media (or a potential competitor) reveal it for him.

“I think Fred is being proactive with this. Better to reveal this now than have the media (or a potential competitor) reveal it for him.”

Right, it’s called “getting ahead” of the story and it’s always better to release information such as this in your own controlled way. Could be a bit of “house cleaning” before his announcement.

Having gotten over my initial panic and shock...

I completely agree with you.

Fred is getting the bad news out of the way before announcing:)

WEith respect, my friend..I have to disagree. I think Fred messed this up, BIG TIME, sadly, in the way he handled it.. Remember when he went on FOX..Chris Wallace's show, about a month ago..said he was thinking about it..and then started generating all this excitement in GOP circles.. He should have put it out there then...the same time..saying that one of the major issues he would have to address would be his health..

BTW.if anyone can dig out that thread...I seem to recall several comments that Fred didn't look that great..that he looked older..there were several pics to illustrate the point.
