And if Fred enters the race, he can do the same. After all, he was the Republican Counsel in the Watergate hearings and therefore he’s already been a direct competitor to Hillary.
Whoever will be the Republican nominee MUST be a fighter. A tough, take-no-prisoners, return-with-your-shield-or-on-it fighter. Dick Cheney has it (too bad he can’t run). Rudy has it. Fred can do it. Newt is a fighter. Duncan called out Reid. Everyone needs to step up and fight — we can’t let the likes of Hillary and Reid and Pelosi beat us because we won’t fight.
IRVING, Texas Actor Fred Thompson said today that the top U-S general in Iraq convinced him that it's wrong to set a timetable for withdrawing from Iraq. Thompson says the U-S should leave -- quote -- "our terms and not al-Qaida's."
Thompson is a former senator considering a presidential run. Polls show Thompson is well-liked in a Republican field for 2008, but he deflected questions today about a White House run.
Thompson and former Senator Bill Bradley spoke to about 100 guests today at a professional golf tournament sponsored by Electronic Data Systems.
Bradley, a former presidential candidate, tweaked his former Senate colleague a couple times about the White House flirtation.
Thompson says the United States has made -- quote -- "a lot of mistakes" in the execution of the war. But he criticized congressional Democrats' plan to set a timetable for withdrawal.
Only if we could get some of those types in Congress too. The current GOP House leadership is about as laughable as it can get. Talk about boring and uninspiring.
Fred is an actor turn politican. He is amenable by nature. A gentlemen. No way can he attack the democrats the way they need to be attacked.
Rominey is the same way. A nice person turned politican.
McClain has a mean streak but he is volatile and unpredictble and can not attack in the same common sense coherrent fashion Rudy can.
