Since we endorsed Fred Thompson on Friday, Human Events has had a huge reaction overwhelmingly positive to the editorial from our readers all across the country. Here are some excerpts from the nearly 500 (and counting) comments:
Human Events made the right choice. Now conservatives everywhere are counting on the good people of South Carolina to do the same, Kelly S., Florida.
Great editorial endorsement. Many conservatives are always trying to distinguish themselves among other conservatives with labels; a Reaganite conservative, a Kirkean traditionalist, etc. This endorsement showed me why I am definitely more of a Human Events conservative than an NR conservative. Of the six real contenders in the race (including Paul but excluding Hunter who doesnt have a prayer), Thompson is clearly the best choice. Andrew C., New Jersey
Human Events has made a loyal reader out of an interloper (me) with the endorsement of Thompson. He is the most reliable conservative in the race. GPM, Florida.
I applaud Human Events for endorsing the ONLY consistent conservative in this race. Every other candidate has gaping holes. Michael G., Arizona
Good call Human Events. It is good to see conservatives beginning to wake up to the Principled Conservative, Fred Thompson. Mark, Oregon
I have said all along, even before the campaign started, that Fred Thompson is the man we need in the White House. He is plain spoken, he does not mince words, and best of all he IS a true conservative. Your endorsement of him warms my heart. Thanks! Jack C., Texas
We acted on principle, and our readers apparently agree.
We are at $848,890! Together we can win South Carolina!
I made a new donation just a bit ago. We’re going for a million, folks!
I jumped in at 650 yesterday.
He is without a doubt the conservative saviour we have been looking for. He is against the bad parts of McCain Feingold he co-sponsored, and I think that speaks to his presidentialness. He quit the Council on Foreign Relations too soon. I think he could have run the whole thing if he had stayed and besides his wife is hotter than Huckleberry’s LOL.
What’s the matter? Can’t you find an “I love the Huckster” thread here at FR to post on? Maybe you should head on over the Camp Hucakbee website to find some friends.
I made another donation yesterday in honor of Rush Limbaugh’s birthday! His bday is actually today, so there is still time for more ‘gifts’ to Rush! lol
however the DBM is still pushing to write off thompson by setting expectations as a do or die. The DBM give a 1hour spin of positive and a 24 hour after that negative spin as the meme goes out.
We also have to deal with FOURTH TIER candidates who refuse to see reality.
With all due respect to you, and all due disrespect to the DBM, Fred himself has set up South Carolina as his "do or die" state by "drawing a line in the sand" there.
I love your sense of humor! I bet your cute too! ;-)
Vote for Fred in South Carolina next Saturday.
Huckabee talks like a Democrat and that is enough for me. I don’t want another Governor from Arkansas. Those who can’t see a good honest man who believes in rock hard conservative/federalist principles vote for those saviors they deserve. Fred isn’t a savior but then again he has never claimed to be one, it is the others who offer themselves up as the savior of the common man. They will save them from their own money even. Fred began a common man and that is something the others would be hard pressed to say.
If Fred is the nominee, I will vote for him. his supporters, however are some of the rudist people I have ever seen. Makes you wonder.
They have a low tolerance for the disingenous and the unpricipled.
I appreciate the hep. Usen Hucklebearys ain’t gude at da buk lurnin. ;)
Would your wife approve of your comment?
This is politics, not playboy.
You take your Hillary Huckabeast...
You can have it; I don’t want it!
It’s too liberal for me;
It’s too Liberal for me!
I don’t think Fred’s ‘line in the sand’ had to do with whether or not he HAD to win SC. I think it was about the Republican Party choosing to stay with conservatism instead of moving in a more liberal direction with some of the other candidates. In fact, when he was asked by a CNN newsbabe about whether or not he thought he needed to WIN the primary, he told her that he wasn’t going to talk process, but instead, concentrate on issues and policies.
You could also call it a low tolerance for stupidity and ignorance. You don’t have to remain stupid or ignorant, just educate yourself. You certainly can’t trust the MSM to provide you with the differences between the candidates. Search the sites of each candidate. When you get to a part of that candidat’s record that makes you feel uncomfortable...move on. By the time you return to the one that got you in your gut, you will know. If that’s Huckabee, then you will probably be stupid and ignorant the rest of your life! Education is the key unless you are just looking for a RINO!
FRED THOMPSON - NATIONAL SECURITY EXPERIENCE (Ill protect the American people and American values, whatever it takes to stop the Islamic-Fascists including water-boarding!) - 2ND AMENDMENT ADVOCATE (Individual rights to protect their homes and property!)
INCREASE THE MILITARYS STRENGTH AND SIZE (Diplomacy through Strength and verification!)
SECURE AND SEAL THE BORDERS (Dont give sanctuary anywhere to illegals; dont employ illegals; dont rent to illegals; dont extend credit to illegals; dont give illegals rights they have no right to; report all crimes committed by illegals to ICE and immediately deport those illegals who have already committed crimes against America!) LAW AND ORDER (Enforcement of our current laws regarding illegal immigration!) DENY FEDERAL DOLLARS TO SANCTUARY CITIES (Enough is enough!)
CONSERVATIVE JUSTICES FOR SUPREMES (Great progress has been made on the Supreme Court in Bushs term. FRED was asked by President Bush to spirit Justice Roberts through the confirmation process. The next President will probably have the opportunity to seat two additional Justices. This is huge folks. FRED will nominate Justices who will interpret the Constitution, not create rights that simply do not exist and legislate from the bench!) PRO-LIFE ADVOCATE (will strive to nominate superior Justices with the eventual goal of overturning Roe vs Wade)
THOMPSON PLAN TO REDUCE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDING (Check out his detailed plan to reduce Federal spending!)
SOCIAL SECURITY REFORMER (Social Security is an entitlement program that will soon overtake the budget. The program cant sustain itself and will bankrupt future generations; FRED has detailed proposals to save Social Security and provide the added benefit of private savings accounts for younger workers!)
DEFEAT ANY DEMOCRAT OR RINO (Close your eyes and imagine the first debate between FRED THOMPSON and ANY liberal DemocRAT they put up?)
TAX SIMPLIFICATION (Reform and perhaps eliminate the IRS with a variety of choice for the tax payer!)
EDUCATION (Return education to the States. It is that simple. The NEA is the greatest enemy of our educational system!)
WONT PUT UP WITH TRUTH MANIPULATION FROM THE DB-MSM (including stupid questions by liberal moderators, and purchased political pundits)
FRED THOMPSON IS THE WE THE PEOPLE CANDIDATE (We the People asked him to set aside his personal life and step up one more time for his Country and he stepped up!)
THIRD IN IOWA, SECOND IN WYOMING (MSM still calling it a tie with McCains name in the lead FoxNews wont even mention his name if they can find a way to avoid it!)
TOTAL DELIGATES TO DATE: 6
WINNER OF SOUTH CAROLINA JANUARY 10, 2008 DEBATE HANDS DOWN!!! (In lieu of the airtime FoxNews chose to give him or not give him as the case may be. WE THE PEOPLE notice garbage like that!)
IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR MICHIGAN OR SOUTH CAROLINA OR FLORIDA OR NEVADA. CONSERVATIVES MUST UNITE NOW! A CONSERVATIVE THOMPSON REVOLUTION! ALL ABOARD THE THOMPSON VICTORY EXPRESS!
