Fred Thompson to Receive Major Endorsement Tomorrow
Fox ^ | January 10th, 2008 6:10 PM Eastern | by Carl Cameron

Posted on 01/10/2008 7:57:15 PM PST by DBCJR

He won’t spill! Sean Hannity tried to pry it out of him to no avail. Taking calls for almost an hour Fred Thompson and Jeri Thompson were on Sean Hannity’s radio show today. While many of the candidates practiced and prepped for tonight’s debate, Thompson took questions from callers and Sean Hannity and played coy regarding a major endorsement he will receive tomorrow.

He said he thinks he has “a fair chance” here in South Carolina. He went on to say “South Carolina is where I stand.” He said he had a strong conservative consistent record which plays well here. “We have to do well here without any question.” He runs fourth in the South Carolina polls at 9%. Saturday, 19th will be the day of reckoning.

I believe that Fred is the best all-around candidate for president. I may end up writing in his name in November. He got into this late and due to not being involved with matters on a day to day basis, had to come up to speed. It took a long time, but, it is beginning to pay off. The down side is that he has given ground that should have been his to the Huckster.

NRA and RUSH.

After tonights debate, these 2 could together could hand SC to Thompson and unite the conservatives. If they fail to do so they should not complain about the rino-ization of the party.

I don’t see anyone else in sight.

It would be helpful if Fox finally started treating him decently, but Murdoch may have had an offer from hillary that he couldn’t refuse.

“NRA and RUSH.”

Well, in essence Rush has already endorsed Fred. However, the NRA is NOT going to endorse a candidate in the primaries. It would cause them to lose too many members.

“Aweeee you’re scared! ROFLOL How silly!”

Well duh! It’s supposed to be silly, the same as all this hype about a major endorsement is silly. Fred has received all kinds of “major” endorsements and he is still behind. He just isn’t getting any traction.

He spent the evening attacking Huckabee instead of selling Thompson. Very bad move.

I pray it’s the NRA.

It is the single biggest endorsement in politics on the conservative side.

Maybe the biggest endorsement, but what about the biggest where it matters, South Carolina? What if he were to get the Southern Baptists?

A church is prevented by law from endorsing candidates. The SBC won’t go there.

Unless the church is prominently black, and supports a liberal.

Hello,

I don’t know HOW to text.

(Other than that, I am pretty cool. I have given $ to Fred and will be calling into SC for him in the next few days.)

But, I have not one clue how to text. Tomorrow, I’ll ask my 10 year old, he’ll help.

Rush would be good but I would prefer that McCain announce he’s dropping out of the race and that all of his supporters should now vote for Thompson!
