Watch the full interview here.
I watched it. Fred was excellent!
Thanks for posting a thread on Fred’s interview. I have been hoping around posting it on various threads! :)
Great Interview!! GO FRED!!
Fred acquitted himself very well. Good job.
Steffie tried his best to trip Thompson up, but Fred was ready for his Democrat talking points.
For those of us on dial up, what happened? Thanks in advance.
calex59, ABC doesn’t offer a slower streaming rate for dialup. but you may want to try this: Move your mouse over the TV screen on the ABC webpage and click on the Real Player pop-up icon which says “Download This Video.” It may take a while to load, but once you’ve got it captured, it should buffer and play correctly.
Fred owned Stephie!
Thanks for posting the link. Fred rocked!
“For those of us on dial up, what happened? Thanks in advance.”
I know what you are going through. When I was on dial up I would just let the videos load.....even if it took an hour. Then would go back and watch it. Perhaps a transcript of Fred’s interview will be posted soon. But hearing or watching the interview is the way to see Fred at his best!
I also watched the interview with George on This Week. Fred was very Presidential and took control of the interview immediately. George tried several times to cut him off and Fred stopped it. I was very pleased, but not shocked. I think he has found his game and is moving around the MSM very well. He is going directly to the people and they feel a little of themselves in him.
I especially enjoyed his response to George’s inquisition as to his “executive experience.” “Leaders hire managers.” I felt it was a home run aimed at Rudy and Mitt. The interview was very good.
Fred Thompson will be the Republican’s choice for our “Pro-Life” party. Rudy will fade into the background and support the WE THE PEOPLE candidate: Fred Dalton Thompson.
Fred is such a compelling guy. I’d feel safe with him at the helm.
Fred once again owned an interview. He doesn’t allow the interviewer to lead he controls the interview and gets his points across. And Fred will always tell you the truth whether it is popular or not he isn’t worried about all these false polls. The only poll that will matter in the end is the vote count. For all of those with dial up. It’s time to get on with your lives. Pay the price for high speed and quit mooching off others.
Yes, he did own Stuffedwithpoopalous. Every time that Georgie got ready to ask a question then smirk about it, Thompson cut him off at the pass and made him look like a lightweight.
The danged page keeps refreshing after about 7 or 8 minutes and I don’t get past there.
Anyone record it yet?
papasmurf, are your trying to download the video first, or are you just trying to watch it at ABC’s streaming rate?
There aren’t any options to download it.
On my windows box, I don’t see, or find, a real player/media icon or logo. It’s flash player9. And on my linux box, it’s just a blank screen.
The properties says it’s abc video player.
Dadgummit! It was good, what I saw of it. LOL
What with the new attack plan from former NYC fire fighters - I suspect they will dampen Rudy’s rise in the polls.
Fred looked and sounded great. I wish him the best and look forward to casting my vote for him in the general election.
Fred did very well.
Stephy: What about Huckabee rocketing past you?
Fred: L0L! I got news for you bub
QUOTE OF THE INTERVIEW...
“Being a manager is good. Managers are people Leaders hire.”
I just finished watching the whole interview. Fred was steady, on message, relaxed, and very Presidential. The questions were not softballs, by any means. Fred manages the media and communicates very well.
Go Fred! Onward and upward as we start the new week.
“QUOTE OF THE INTERVIEW...
Being a manager is good. Managers are people Leaders hire.
That was my favorite, too.
Man, he stomped all over the fluff-haired so-called “journalist”.
WARNING: If you want to be added to this list, this ping list is EXTREMELY active.
Excellent interview. Thank you for posting the link.
The more I see of Fred ..the more I like him.
That's precisely how I felt about his performance with Russert on MTP. It'll be interesting if the same pundits who spun that as a negative performance also do that for todays interview. There are a bunch of folks in both the old and new media who don't like Fred because he isn't sufficiently defferential to THEM. But then, of course, there are people like Bill Kristol who balance them out.
Seemed like Stephie had about 4 corners he had planned to get FT backed into and couldn’t do it. Worked out well for FT.
Caught Fred this morning with Georgie. Just watched it again. Fred was even better the second time around.
On issue after issue, point after point, from a conservative perspective, no one beats Fred.
Placemarker for later
On my Windows XP Media Edition laptop, when I move my mouse over the “TV Screen” at the top right-hand corner of my screen, I get a popup Real Player icon which can be clicked on to download the video.
Fred did great and pwn3d Georgie porgie.
These things are far above people such as yourself at such a meager pay grade. I have exhausted years knowing more than the rest of you. Your jubilant obfuscation of Fred’s perceived success will not hinder the political truths I tell you, and none of you, including myself, have yet to challenge me with anything even remotely as superior as my facts.
The National political game is the same as the Chess Pie my mother made...
No, it is the same as the Chess played by the Apache Indians whose pieces represented elephants and cowboys, and upon defeat of the ignorant cowboys the elephants would poop upon the ground signifying that Fred Thompson was from Kentucky though he was really from Tennessee, but I made you think about it didn’t I.
That is why I always win...
Oh yeah, I AM SPARTICUS!
Hey, how did I do?
In the course of this interview, Steponallofus said that Terri Schiavo was “brain-dead,” and Thompson accepted that egregious lie immediately. Fred also said that the final say should be had by the state courts. No reference to the sworn duties of anyone else. None at all.
“Nutty is about the only word I can of think about it...”
FRed Thompson 11/18.07
Oh, man— you are BRILLIANT! The part about Apache chess and the significance of elephant poop cleared up EVERYTHING for me. I now understand the every aspect of this universe and the parallel one next door. I also know the location of the universe’s dark matter. It’s located in the brain pan of a certain FReeper—not yourself, of course—who shall go unnamed.
No need to thank me, it is just a small way I help the “little people”...
Glad you brought that up. Steffie did say they had determined in the autopsy that she was brain dead. FRed did allow it to go by, obviously he wanted to move off of it. I can understand that.
It seemed obvious to this untrained observer, that she was not brain dead at all. Although, I have been reassured by my liberal friends that you can, in fact, laugh and feign emotion even when you’re brain dead, to wit: harry reid, nancy pelosi, hildedebeast, etc.
Question I have is...can an autopsy determine whether or not a person was brain dead? I thought they needed a live brain to determine that.
Any doctors in the house?
Um, let me guess?
Can I buy a vowel and a number, Pat? :)
Go watch it yourself. I saw what I saw.
Thanks so much for posting this.
There were other things he said about the Schiavo case I disagree with, along with more reiteration of his veiws about states’ rights vs. unalienable rights. I’ll come back later and address them more fully once I’ve had a chance to read a transcript of his remarks.

Not bad. You sounded just like a Mittwit. You could have whined a little more, however...
Don’t bother. She’s dead. Let the poor woman rest in peace.
I already watched it, thanks.
