I actively support HUNTER AND THOMPSON

Posted on 09/08/2007 9:24:29 PM PDT by Allan S.

I think we need both Thompson and Hunter on the final ticket. It is too early to rule out HUNTER as top of ticket, but presently it looks like THOMPSON in the top spot. These guys should follow Reagan's "Eleventh Commandment" as regards each other. I think I was the first to suggest Hunter run for the presidency, on the F.A.I.R.(Dan Stein Report) Commentaries. I have been bullish for Thompson, whenever he addressed illegal immigration, or addresses a madness like the "Sanctuary City Movement". Let us pray that these two seemingly good conservatives can avoid trashing each other in any ungentlemanly or permanent way. They really need each other, and the nation needs them both. Folks, America is fatally wounded by the Mexican invasion, and drastic political surgery, alone, can save the patient!

What do you FR stalwarts think of these men as a potential pair ? Can they be remembered as a political LEWIS & CLARK "near" equal team in future history?

The Hillary/Obama ticket would best be countered by Fred/Condlezza. (My brother’s opinion, I agree)

Can Hunter carry CA? Not likely, so he won’t be chosen as VP by FDT.

Hunter Thompson will smile from wherever, as he would have for Bush/Cox.

Fred won’t choose her. She is too anti-Israel. He is a huge Israel supporter.

I agree. I’m a bit more drastic in my appraisal of what needs to be done. I’d like to see a Hunter/Bolton Whitehouse.

a madness like the "Sanctuary City Movement".

Come to think of it, Sanctuary is a religious term. The "movement" should be attacked as mixing Church and State. Up yours, ACLU!

I think Hunter would make a better Secretary of Defense.
With the exception of Cheney, the VP slot has historically been a very weak position.

I disagree about Condi. We need fresh talent and a clean break from the Bush administration. It’s the only way to break the traditional changing of party hands that happens with the White House after 2 terms.

My concern about Condlezza is the same I have for everyone brought up through the system during the previous long war.

That entire era was all about seeking stasis through compromise with the sword of damocles (MAD) hanging over everything.

Ms Rice may well be a solid, stalwart person fully adjusted to this new war’s reality, but... then again, maybe not.

I have a lot more faith in Mr. Thompson as a politician with some baseline honor, and Mr. Hunter as a warrior with some political ability. Both of these men were also raised up during the decades of compromise and stasis seeking, but both have also given indications of being more fully aware of what we are up against, and what must be done, than others of their generation.

That’s my personal take on the issue at this moment. Not that it’s worth anything to anyone but myself.

All statements of persons demonstrating honor and/or integrity are subject to change as said persons talk their talk and provide more indications of how their minds function, or dont.

I'd rather see Hunter as the head of Homeland Security. The fence WOULD be built.

In the primaries, my active support goes to Thompson and Obama. Both are electable representatives of their own parties’ ideological and political traditions. For president, as did General US Grant, I believe almost any Republican superior to almost every Democrat. Obama’s vice presidential selection will (be) pale beside him, but Republicans have a bit of a history of choosing trouble. Don’t want another Agnew, don’t want another Cheney.

Yes, Hunter would be excellent in that position. And once he gains some visibility (people here at FR have told me he has none), we can hope for a President Hunter the next time around.

Well, Homeland is lowest man on the Cabinet totem poll. His expertise is defense, so DefSec makes the most sense.

Some liberal babe on Fox Business Saturday morning, said today that FredT is gonna pick Sen Judd Gregg as his running mate before too long. In order to pacify NH voters. LOL I though it was a crazy thing to say.

Before we talk about who Fred`s running mate will be, he first has to get the nomination. His chances are good, but they would be better if the second tier candidates backed out now. Its time to start waking up to reality. The first primaries/caucuses are less than four months away. And the prime goal is to make sure the liberal Giuliani doesn't get the nomination. With a fractured GOP, Rooty’s chances improve.

What a nut. Candidates don’t pick their running mates before the first primary votes are even cast.

I agree about 2nd tier candidates backing out.
Thompson should consider making a deal with Hunter to appoint him to Defense Secretary if Duncan drops out before Iowa and endorses him.

Well, Homeland is lowest man on the Cabinet totem poll.

That's only because the current administration put it there. Hopefully, the next president will understand that nothing is more important than homeland security and will give DHS the top rank it should have.

Fred would be wise to go with a strong debater with proven exective experience and a dynamic personality that would balance his low key personality. That person would be Mitt Romney.

First of all, I atoned for my Giuliani sins long before the April purge. The fact is, is that I don't support him now.

I support both Paul & Thompson because of their views on the Constitution and limited government. I've always been a "Paulite" since he was worshipped here on FR (Yes, there was a time when Paul was THE MAN on FR, I've been here since 1999 kiddo). Right now I'm undecided as to whom I'll vote for in the primaries.

Nope. Hunter brings nothing to the ticket. Thompson would have the conservative vote locked up. So Hunter doesn’t help there. We have no hope of carrying California. So Hunter doesn’t help there. The running mate ought to be someone from Ohio, Florida or Minnesota, where the election will be decided. A second possibility is Colorado, where we have to win but are increasingly weak. But there are not really any decent candidates from Colorado.
