Fred HAS to win the Republican nomination!!! Here's why:
Even with limited funds, Fred can still prevail. And the contributions will greatly increase with a clear and firm statement that he will continue through the convention. Many of the voters fear wasting their votes and money on someone who will give up before the 'fat lady sings'.
Give them what they want - a firm commitment - and the votes and money will come in like a tidal wave. Do not acknowledge any possibility of loss. Be resolute and absolutely believe that Fred will win, and convey that commitment to the people. Fred needs to have and make this commitment, and so does his staff. The MSM has too many times alleged that senior staffers have hinted of his dropping out.
If Fred can’t win SC, where can he win?
He didn’t say anything about his plans to go on to Florida.
Expect him to drop out soon.
Fred has a new photo on Fred08.com and paragraphs explaining how he will build up the military. They were put there since yesterday, if I’m not mistaken.
This is a good sign that he plans to fight on.
AMEN BROTHER!!!!! To Hell with these RINO’s
His campaign team has to make some serious adjustments fast.
You guys are ridiculous
Rasmussen markets: Fred Thompson at 0.4% to win nomination.
So who are you supporting?
RINO is not such an elegant or precise term. Are there degrees of RINOism? I believe that there are. Fred staying in the race bleeds votes from everyone accept McCain, the worst RINO. His remaining in the race, in my view, is a bad thing. I also believe that Huckabee has no real shot. The candidates who still have a real shot are McCain, Romney & possibly Rudy.
We must decide which among them we will get behind, or just take our marbles, go home and complain. Of the three, I think Romney is the lesser RINO and would be the strongest candidate in the GE.
Never Give Up!
Fred, use this opportunity to regroup, let Huckabee lose badly in Florida, and then come on great guns for Super Tuesday with a speech that knocks us out and a debate performance that gets you noticed.
If you also happen, in the speech, to use the word “pimps” to describe the media it couldn’t hurt.
As you say, most of the candidates are losers. Fred is the last man standing.
If you look at the results of the last FR poll on the right, you can see that Freepers still overwhelmingly support Fred, although you might not get that impression on some of the threads, since supporters of the other candidates have been very active.
I don’t know what the outcome will be, but with Hunter out there’s no one else who is fit for a conservative to vote for. Let’s pray that this works out for the good of our country.
Enter by the narrow gate, broad is the way that leads to destruction :)
I’m tired of hearing who Thompson hurts if he stays in...he has as much a right to try and capture the nomination as all the others. Stop whining.
I’m with Fred as long as long as he won’t give up! GO FRED!
I'll support Romney now, and Id have to think about it for the others, except I will never vote for McCain, ever.
So thats it. I hope he bows out and doesent endorse anyone. His chance is over, unfortunately.
Actually, we’re expecting you to drop out.
Get ‘er done!
It was Thompson that said South Carolina was his “line in the sand.” If he stays in after a dismal third place in a Southern State, and the above statement.....then he is motivated by ego not the best interests of the country.
All Thompson can do is play spoiler and make the fracturing of the GOP a reality. If he gets out now, there may be time to heal the damage done. Maybe, folks like you will get over your mania and eventually come back to reality. However, the longer Thompson drags it out, the more damage he does.
I’ve given Fred $500 already, and if he told me that he’s in to the convention, I’d max out tomorrow.
Keep fightin’ hte good fight FRed!!
We are in danger, but I'm pretty folks living in 1776-1789, 1812, 1941-1945 and 1945-1991 would disagree.
And with the other cast of characters running this is a bad thing how?
watch the video.
I agree, Fred needs to soldier on.
Are there anymore debates coming up that’d give him more chances to kick some a$$ like the last debate?
As far as I see it, it isn’t over yet. Mitt has 3 wins, McLame 2, Huck 1, and Rudy will probably take Florida.
His numbers are steady going up while others are going down and the loss of Hunter most likely means he’ll get those votes as well.
Oh OK I guess he should just quit and let MYTH, McInsane, and the Huckleberry from Hope fight it out.
I don't think so.
I have no problem with him flacking for a lousy candidate like McCain as long as it's hurting an utterly worthless one like Huckabee.
I hear you. However, the problem with that is that McCain is "the front runner." Whereas Huckabee will fame out on super Tuesday anyway.
You claim to have supported Fred but to simultaneously think that he was “flacking” for McCain. You sound like a liar.
Yeah, we saw how those phony market predictions are just so correct. NOT!
Those are a scam, but you go ahead and bet your house on it.
I am for Fred and looking forward to the day he steps into the White House as President of all the conservative......well ok he can be President of all Americans but we get to cheer first for him.
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!)
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 TOO LATE FOR SOUTH CAROLINA, BUT IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR FLORIDA! IT IS TIME FOR REAGAN CONSERVATIVES TO COME OUT OF THE WALLS AND WOODWORK AND UNITE NOW BEHIND THE ONLY TRUE STANDARD BEARER FOR REAGAN CONSERVATISM! A CONSERVATIVE THOMPSON REVOLUTION! PLEASE STOP BY FRED08.COM AND STUDY HIS WHITE PAPERS ON ALL THE MAJOR ISSUES!
DO YOU REALLY WANT McCAIN OR HUCKABEE OR ROMNEY? ARE YOU WILLING TO SETTLE WHEN ONLY A HANDFULL OF STATES HAVE VOICED THEIR CHOICE? ITS NOT OVER! FRED WILL NOT GIVE UP ON HIS COUNTRY THAT EASY. RUSH WILL HELP NOW WATCH! MARK LEVIN GREAT READ!
You posted eloquently but I have to sincerely disagree with your premise. If you don't vote for who you think is best qualified, you will never get the person you want. Treating an election like a football game is not the right way to vote, and way to complicated what with all the permutations. Keep it simple, vote for who you think is best qualified, not the one you think will will or the one that might draw votes from an apponent.
What you say it true, but not as ole' Paul says, 'The rest of the story.'
I would bet my house against yours that, in this case, the prediction is correct. Would you bet your house that Fred is ultimately nominated?
Your ignorance is showing. Reagan lost 11 primaries before he got elected.
Still standing strong with Fred for me.
Lincoln was 3rd or something like that afterall.
Someone once said, history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.
Anyone wishing to join the FRed List, please let me or Political mom know.
Surely Fred is the purest conservative. However, I live in Delaware. Fred could not even gather enough signatures to get on the ballot here. Maybe that says something.
Eh, I don’t think McCain is the front-runner. Romney leads in delegates and he’s the only one of the two with the money and organization to compete across the board on Feb. 5. McCain had to pour everything into South Carolina and only eked out a with because Thompson was able to convince enough evangelicals the Bible doesn’t command stoning for those who vote for anyone but Huckabee.
Count me in on that, ridiculous that is :^)
***You guys are ridiculous***
Sorry, its not going to happen. I wish it weren’t so, but it is.
Amen brother! I’m sick of hearing that too.
Reminds me of the words of Churchill:
I believe they were:
“Never give in.”
“Never give in.”
“Never give in.”
You can save yourself the grief, FRiend. The “markets” predicted Duncan Hunter to win Wy. and NV., just to name a few.
They are so easily gamed, usually by those that have already lost money. LOL
BTW, you wouldn’t want my vinyl sided lean to behind the outlet mall house...the view is terrible.
You beat me to it! LOL!
How could you forget 1861-1865?
Operative phrase, in this case.
I REFUSE TO GIVE UP!!!! We need FRed!!
Thanks for the ping. GO FRED!
