Skip to comments.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!
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 know, ‘pipe dream’...
Come to think of it, Sanctuary is a religious term. The "movement" should be attacked as mixing Church and State. Up yours, ACLU!
“VOTE FOR RON PAUL YOU STUPID INFIDELS!”
What's that? Oh...it's Hunter S. Thompson that's dead.
“”What do you FR stalwarts think of these men as a potential pair ?””
============================================================Since this is FR, we would all love exactly that team, except for the tiny Paul and Romney clubs.
Hunter as VP is wasted. He should be Fred’s DefSec.
Why don’t you just admit that you’re a Paulestinian and get it over with?
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.
My opinion, too.
Don’t worry. He’s admitted it before, and he’ll admit it again.
Didn’t I just see you on Geraldo?
Really? Where? I’ve got to see this. It was just the other day that E3 denied to me that he was one.
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.
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.
No offense: Ron Paul is an IDIOT
Hunter is the 1
Yeah that was me. I was the guy smoking a bong.
The one with the “9/11 Was an Inside Job” sign or the one with the “Stop the NeoCon Mad Men” sign?
From Guiliani to Fred to Ru, who’s next? Kucinich? Obama? Surely not sHillary?
Neither. He was the one with the sign that read “Convert to Islam NOW!”.
And just who is going to clean up all the exploding liberals should this scenario pan out?
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.
That one I like!! A kick ass administration.
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.
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.
Here and I thought that Health & Human Services was the most important. ;-D
What would be wrong with a Hunter/Tancredo ticket?
We have GOT to put someone in the WH who will protect our sovereignty.
you’re talkin HUNTER
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.
Huh? Cheney's been a great VEEP.
Did you watch any of the videos?
He’s an idiot .
Hunter is the man.
ANd nobody knows it yet.
Duncan Hunter’s walk has never differed from his talk. He is the only one in this race that you can say that about.
Yeah and Hunter could deliver California’s 55 Electoral Votes to the GOP. Well, hey, it could happen....well.... never mind.
If we have no hope of carrying California with Thompson, why is he the conservative’s answer? Reagan carried California.
