Yes, since you asked....
“It doesn’t go as far as many of us would like, but it goes a lot further than Rudy Giuliani, and he’s got a much more solid record on the issue than Mitt Romney. It gets us closer to where we need to be. I am satisfied,”
Question. How do you figure a statement like this helps “assuage” religious conservatives? Are you suggesting that we should settle for and be “satisfied” with a ‘moderate’(some would say RHINO) outcome, rather than a conservative outcome on this issue?
It is the Congress and state legislatures that pass constitutional amendments, not presidents. The Arlington Group needs to focus on them if they’re serious about the issue.
It looks like our chances of keeping Rudy out of the White House, keep improving.
Mitt Romney has the right views on the issues, but they feel that he doesn’t have a solid enough record? And Thompson does? These people need to pull their heads out of the sand. Hillary Clinton will eat Thompson alive in a general election. Especially during the debates. This man has a hard time coming close to knowing the issues well, imagine him going one on one with Hillary. Mark my words he will never be president. If republicans are foolish enough to nominate him we will be throwing away the presidency.

From the article:
"In the end, Thompson's position would bar judges from changing the definition of marriage, and he said that he would be supportive of a Constitutional amendment if we were able to get it passed. What I came away from the meeting with was that, first, he is one of us, and second, he will actually work with us and use the bully pulpit of the presidency to help us and our nation's culture."
