With all the excitement surrounding the possible candidature of Fred Thompson for the GOP nomination, one question remains unclear: where does he stand on the rights of the unborn?
Is Fred Thompson pro-life? As President, would he stand up for the most defenceless of Americans?
Your comments are much appreciated.
If he embraces pro-life, he wins.
Like rotting cordwood.
He not only has a perfect NARAL record, but he actually keynotes their fundraisers.
“He denies that he was ever pro-choice.”
If he did deny it, it could be problemmatic. Especially, if a confirmed quote or a YouTube video comes out with Fred saying something to the effect that “....the ultimate decision must be made by the women.....”
Maybe you are thinking of a different conservative, who certainly was pro-abortion, Barry Goldwater.
What a lovely smear.
Nope, look at #28 - he has been doing this for a while. Hey, vest isn’t even new like Kerry’s was... I agree - good form.
Why did you reply to my #29? I was speaking to someone else, about something else.
“He was pro-choice in his 1994 Senate Campaign and then proceeded to vote pro-life in the Senate”
Care to show some documentation for that claim. I live and vote in tennessee and say you’re wrong
Thought you were expressing that prior post was a smear - that he picked up his conservative ‘larnin in a class.
Thought you might want to see one he does sans class...
Jess tryin to support your stance.
I’m more interested in knowing if he is “small government”.
Hey, I think a moderator (Jim?) changed the title. Looks like they are sick of these unending re-tread threads, too. :)
The Governmental Affairs Committee is charged with overseeing the management of the federal government. During his Chairmanship, Senator Thompson’s committee actively pursued an agenda aimed at producing a smaller, more efficient, and more accountable government. Of his efforts, the Kingsport Times-News wrote, “Sen. Thompson is to be applauded for keeping a watchful eye over Washington fiscal matters. There should be more like him.”
Senator Thompson held hearings on topics such as improving the federal regulatory process; reforming the IRS; exploring ways to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse; and a number of national security issues, including the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and missile technologies. Senator Thompson also investigated and successfully enacted solutions to information management problems such as computer security.
We had a stern warning to Rudiphile troll #1 last night, and the zotting of another Rudiphile troll today, I’d say the smears about conservatives’ positions are being throttled back pretty hard.
