Posted on 01/29/2012 12:20:37 PM PST by jimbo123
Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) on Sunday attacked Mitt Romney for "unseemliness and overkill" in his aggressive campaign against Newt Gingrich, the candidate Thompson has endorsed.

Drudge has always had a point of view. Last week he jumped into political advocacy. I don’t need another one of those in my life.
The GOP TARP establishment is the ‘pink mafia’.
3 days no drudge for me

i now go look at “legal insurrection” sight and FR as alternatives to Drudge since that dump the middle of this last week. In a time of war if folks that were on your side do what the establishment camp has done you could charge them with treason and have them strung up.
In our modern world you merely go to another web sight and continue to watch the decline an fall of what was once a great Republic
Hello, Matt, I assume you’re lurking. I have deleted all my Drudge bookmarks, and I won’t be around for a very long time. Genoa
Fred Thompson still pimping that national popular vote scam?
Deleted Drudge from my bookmarks the day his agenda became clear. Almost every “conservative” publication has taken a side, and a side I don’t care for.
All I have left is FR!
Nobody wants to rock the boat anymore. Milt is the safe, business as usual, status quo candidate. We taxpayers don’t want to get the freeloaders mad at us. I say, damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead! We’ve got a country to save.
Fred joining the resistance. We can do it.
Drudge is just one part of the King Romney regime. America is in real trouble and we might have a new King, King Romney. He started destroying Newt in Iowa and will continue buying the Presidency. America will have no choice but King Obama or King Romney. Both will destroy America.
They probably don’t realize it, but the moderate (read Liberal) wing of the GOP is doing more to create a real Third Party (read Tea Party ) than anything anyone else is trying to do... I’m ready to bolt...
I can only hope that if Mitt is our nominee, he will go after muslim marxist Barry Hussein Soetoro with the same vigor and intensity he demonstrated against his Republican rivals. Captain Queeg (McCain) would even say Hussein’s middle name in 2008; lets hope Romney has more balls that Captain Queeg.
Do you have a comment pertaining to the topic of this thread...namely, Drudge being in RINOROMNEY's back pocket?
Here’s a video of Matt Rhoades, who is Drudge’s buddy at Team Romney. Does anyone know if Rhoades is gay?
Drudgereport is dead to me.
Did he venture a guess as to what Romney pocket Ann Coulter is in?
Given that Drudge is a pillow biter, I’d bet it’s not either of the front pockets...

LOL, ROMNEY? Surely you jest. Willard has repeatedly refused to call Obama a socialist. Recently he said that the economy is recovering under Obama. Do you think he will go after Obama with anything other than half-hearted, limpwristed, Mormon-on-a-bike politeness?
Some of you clowns are becoming regular old lefties when it comes to things you don’t want anyone to know.
Not a chance in heck there.
Wow! Fred's been reading my posts here on FR!

Are you sure you want to be pimping for Romney around here?
Last night Red Eye reran the program with Ann Coulter, she ended up not getting a warm reception. Got ragged on for Romney and she shut down for the most part and did a lot of giggling. She was quite annoying...It was a rerun from this past week. Red Eye does that on the week-ends.
Kiss off, dumbass.
Mitt will never get my vote. I am a conservative not a republican. He’s no better than a democrat, leftist, liberal. I would vote down ballot but leave president open. Scum is scum. And those that say to not vote republican is a vote for Obama...bull crap. I owe my vote to the one that best supports my point of view, not someone that supports NONE of my point of view, and in fact is for everything I am against...I’ll let those that call themselves conservation but are not vote for the republican that is no better than what is in the WH now.
As John Harris of the Washington Post first reported in October 2006, Drudge has an unusually close relationship with a senior Romney strategist, Matt Rhodes:
Matt Drudge outed as gay by David Brock and Alec Baldwin, denies it but admits he goes to gay bars:
Ann Coulter Named Honorary Chair Of GOProud, Republican gay group:
Romney Personally Issued Marriage Licenses to 189 Same-Sex Couples:
I would love to see Rush ‘need’ to survive cutting grass because he tooo gives sanction what God Himself calls an abomination....
No Rush I do not expect you to recognize how far to the left you have embraced but the smell ought to be getting close to your nostrils.
Well, I cancelled my National Review print subscription. I had had it for so long I have forgotten when I joined. I had my fill of Lowery, that dweeb.
Just look at the way Mitt Romney campaigns via overkill and lies. This must be how Bain Capital did business. Not too much real capitalism was going on where you build. It was parasitical vulture capitalism if even want to call it capitalism
Romney is on a Mormon mission where all bad behavior to uppity non-Mormons is fine. Romney is leaving me with a very bad taste in my mouth. He doesn’t fight fair...he fights like a girl. He lies and scratches and bites
I’m glad to see Fred back home. I grew very disillusioned with him when he dropped out of the last race and endorsed Meghan’s dad.
Kinda doubt that. Romney saves his wrath for fellow Republicans same as when McCain ran against JD Hayworth. McCain was vicious then but never against Obama who he practically threw the election to
LOL bite me, vote for Obama in white skin if you want. Romney won’t get me vote, if you vote for him, your anti-second amendment, pro abortion, not even a republican cause Romney has said he is a not a republican, he is a progressive...Idiot statement like yours are a laugh..Your no realist, you have no principals...
This is the guy I believe should have been president. I agree with him here once again. He knows the press and the narratives they create all to well.
Matt is cool, and conservative and.....I think the libs realized the 2012 odds and the fact they’d need a film of Matt doing something usually considered extremely non-conservative.
I mean COME ON, 13 anti-Newt articles in ONE day? That reallllly smacks of blackmail.
They finally have him in a pink honey-trap, I think.
I love the guy, he has helped us A LOT, but I’m not dumb enough to think there’s not more going on, here.
Same! FR is my internet home - just wish more members would support it.
Well, I always thought Drudge was more or less a conservative. He always seemed to be pro-life. I do not understand his love for Romney, but then again, Drudge never promised us anything. His website doesn’t profess to be conservative. Who knows what his reasons are.
Then again, are we sure he is really for Romney, or does he just maybe hate Gingrich? Like Coulter, his buddy?
Anyway, Drudge is just one person, with biases. It doesn’t infuriate me as much as when Faux or CNN does it, when they profess to be at least objective “news.” One’s own page is always going to be slanted to one’s own likes.
You want to be a loser. You deserve it if it happens.
You are so cute and witty. If thats the best you have to my response.
Fred is absolutely right. We need more people like Fred pointing out the obvious to idiots who can’t seem to think for themselves. If we could just get Newt elected and then get him to appoint Fred as Attorney General we can then start to jail those responsible for the housing crisis and the theft of tarp funds and all of the other scandals. Frank, Dodd, Kerry Pelosi and many other rat criminals. As far as news sources go I am done with The Drudge Report.
And your “bite me” remark was comedic genius.
I guess it comes down to the fact that I want to win the 2012 election. I want Obama sent back to Chicago or Kenya or wherever. I’m not interested in an ideological purity contest. Romney and Gingrich are both fat cat political insiders and I don’t really care which one it is. They are more or less the same. I just want to stop the circular firing squad and train our fire on Obama. The whole “if my doesn’t win I’ll stay home attitude” is getting really tiresome. Its childish and self defeating.
Other than FR what’s the best Drudge alternative?
