It doesn’t matter who is voicing a few misgivings. They picked Fred, I think they should go ahead and back him.
This kind of whining and regrets, if genuine, is a little too self-serving.
....what a weak “Hit” piece.....
and betamax was a good video format...
considering the professor has a left wing bias, it is a very limp wristed hit piece.
LOL . . . I'm going to break it to you . . . but if you are looking for a conservative nominee then you may be making fun of your own aspirations, since Thompson and Tancredo are the other conservatives in the race besides Hunter and they are both looking like longshots as well. I say that giving Thompson the benefit of the doubt in regard to his basic conservatism on the issues of immigration and trade. Thompson's campaign may be in a "lull" as another poster put it, but I was worried about him as a candidate when he was freezing support for guys like Hunter before he announced, and my worries seem to be bearing out. I support Hunter because he is the best man in the country for the office of President, in my opinion. I can't think of another man I would rather have be President and it has been a long time since I felt that way about a candidate.
I think you are right, I should have pinged JimRob on that. Thank you and apologies to Jim.
I think you are right, I should have pinged Jim Robinson on that. Thank you and apologies to Jim.
Looks like he’s smelling something bad. A real cheerful, optimistic, attractive candidate. The perpetual hangdog expression is a real winner.
True as a definition goes. You are correct. But, we could actually win the election and still have an opening for conservative agendas depending on the ticket: Mitt, Rudy , even John would have to pick a conservative to have a chance at holding the South. In reality, only Rudy could be the only guy to pull that off. John has tricked the BASE too long. Mitt is an OK guy, good on economics but national security: who knows? Rudy is at best a moderate, whatever that is. But, he could win. Hil would be in trouble in many blue and purple states and if Rudy picked a S.conser or W. conserv for the VP, he could edge her out. Anybody but a Dem for me, my friend.
No problem per se. We just know that any little personal item will be meat for the grinder by the Democrats & lib-media especially when gay marriage comes up, as if they have a hoot n holler to do with one another, but there ya go. It will be used, valid or not, to lob a hypocrisy charge. Dems will do anything to win. We also know that a personal life example that is a bit better than the Clintons wouldn't hurt.
Also I think Fred’s situation has been above reproach. Divorce is common now, and since there has been no sign of infidelity on Thompson’s part, he stands head and shoulders above the Clintons.
Yes to the first part, and no to the second. It has to be considered as part of the overall package. A person does not get a pass from me for lying under oath - however I do believe in redemption.
I have a serious problem with folks that have multiple marriages. One divorce can be a result of bad judgement...multiple divorces indicate bad character.
Actually I am. Fred is younger than Reagan at the sametime in this game and Reagan did quite well...
Oh come on. Ronald Reagan looked like Mitt Romney. Youthful and energetic. Nobody would have thought Ronald Reagan looked old. Horrible comparison if you want your point to be taken.
I wanted to explore this because of the topic (Fred) and the fact that it has never been said he cheated on his ex wife. So the divorce seems to be “legit” from a fidelity stand point (ie not the cause). He also seems quite happy and satisfied in his current marriage and blessed with two children
So I want to avoid the implication that Fred cheated and also the implication that divorcees are not fit for office.
Remember, Reagan too was twice married, and he worked out pretty could for our conservative cause. Not comparing the men but the circumstance.
I think it is a solid comparison. Both men were in the same age group, both actors with presence and ability. Maybe Fred should get some Mitt hair, will that help? I often times find hair styles as the single most determining factor in my candidate.
Of course that would make him like Mitt as well, though only Fred’s hair would be fake...
Ping. As if FV’s the only person hvg doubts about Fred. These are elected officials! The smearization of FV is officially OVER.
bttt. You are on the right track. No flip flopping in your politics.
