I thought Thompson was very well spoken and very humble. I was quite impressed.

“Last Best Chance” was a short film made by the Nunn committee on nuclear proliferation and terrorism.

FDT played the POTUS.

Frankly, that’s all I’ve seen you do regarding Fred.

Yes, regarding Fred, I am inclined to ask questions.

My motives are sincere. Conservatives must voice their demands now, or our agenda will be drowned out down the road.

All I can say is, if Thompson runs and get's the nomination, I hope ALL republicans support him.
Just a side note, John Kennedy was a senator.
Actually ( correct me if I am wrong ) but, isn't the only requirements to run for president in the US is : you must be 37 years old, and a natural born US citizen ( I know, I know, that person must have some kind of experience, but, Ike was a US general ).
I wanted and supported Duncan Hunter, and if he get's the nomination, that would be great, but, that looks as of now his chances look slim.

It’s nice to see that Fred is willing to go on Fox with Hannity and lie. Is this the right wing hero? A liar?

This is what got my attention. I apologize if I misunderstood it.

Haley Barbour, for Fred’s VP

Too much Southern for one ticket. Some of us Northerners are about Southerned-out. :-) But I could put up with Fred's accent, I suppose, since it utters so much common sense.

I would expect the general election to come down to less than a 2-3% spread.

Thompson 51-52%
Gore 48-49%

If Hillary:

Thompson 54-55%
Clinton 45-46%

There'll probably be a third-party candidate in there somewhere, but with only a minor drain-off.

I saw the interview - it was great!

Very purposeful! Thoughtful! Weighing his words.

I was ticked at what Morris said .. about the GOP wanting someone more forceful .. etc.

WE DON’T WANT A FIRE-BREATHING DRAGON .. we want someone who believes in America and in us. Morris is all wrong about how Fred appeared in the interview.

Besides, you don’t have to yell to speak the truth.

Is it his 2nd marriage?

Yes. I believe he and his first wife were divorced even before he ran for the Senate. I think he met Jeri when he was in DC. She worked in some sort of capacity for the Republican party, or some group associated with the party.

I wish I had seen it! Does anyone know if it is linked anywhere yet?

While I agree with your remarks and sentiment I admit I do want a President who will cut through the nonsense of the MSM in a clear manner to get his message out. I think Fred is a conservative who can do this effectively.

Bush threw up the white flag a long time ago and consequently his message, effectiveness, and ability to govern has been wiped out by the constant stream we get out of the MSM today.

Many of us speak with that “hick sounding twang” that you abhor.

However, if you’ll look at the electoral map, you may notice that our twangs and drawls are a pretty good indicator of sound thinking. Surely you meant no disrespect.

I agree.

I remain very frustrated with the MSM reporting on the war as well as the rare response from the White House.

I campaigned for Fred when he ran for senate in Tennessee and one of the things I like the most is his ability to articulate his message effectively.

I really think he will win if he enters the race and I have worn out my friends and co-workers with my excitement.

Here in GA, we had the chance to get Herman Cain as a senator, but a three way race put Isakson back in. He’s ok, but Herman was great.

Well, I have read all the way to the end of this thread and see no reason to think that Fred did not do well.

I have been wishing for someone to support instead of Rudy for so long I was afraid to hope he was the one.

I guess I can breathe a sigh of relief now and happily wait for the announcement!

Your post just said it all. But, afterall, Fred Thompson is an actor and though there are MANY more conservatives that would be better candidates and you could understand the hysteria, I see another George Allen in the making. Fred Thompson will be an acceptable conservative on most issues, but will turn out to be a major disappointment as candidate and leader, if he actually was so sure a thing for election. More of the same. Duncan Hunter remains exactly the kind of man this country needs and has the spine that Fred and the others lack. But his name doesn’t stand out because he’s not an actor! If Fred gets the nomination I don’t want to see Hunter on the ticket. Thompson can run on his own and go down on his own. And the derisiveness toward Hunter’s candidacy is enough that they should not have the audacity to want him to pick up for Thompson’s faults. Find another VP. Same old, same old GOP.

Fred Thompson can pick someone else as VP. Thompson should run on his own and not be shown to be the lesser candidate on the ticket.

Thanks for posting the link.

Frankly I am disappointed in the interview. Hannity's questions were very soft, as were Fred's answers. I learned nothing new, nor would I think anyone that was watching. Hannity has been much more agressive with other candidates, including Rudy and McCain. With the Rudy interview, Hannity pushed Gulliani to admit whether or not he was running - and that was like in February or so.

In the intro, Hannity claims he will "talk about (Thompson's) potential run for the Witehouse" - yet what they did was talk ask about running for President in a generic sense. There was nothing specific to the subject of "Many conservative are disappointed with the current field of GOP candidates...Are you running and why would you be a better choice?"

And the absence of pointing out how he is different than the others was striking. This is valuable face time, and regardless of his intentions, you would think Thompson would want to get that out there. Instead he appears like all of the others. I did not hear how Fred was better than others due to his positions on issues, nor did I hear anything beyond lite retoric on the war on terror. Harry Reid is an easy target, and several other candidates have already stepped out in front on this issue in a much stronger way. In fact, we got the same rhetoric that we have heard from Bush - we are all in this together and the Democrats are going to contribute to the solution.

The only impression I got was he is still considering a run...but why he really thinks he can make a difference escapes me after watching it.

I saw Thompson debate Houston in his Senate run years back, and that was an impressive showing. But I think this interview was awful and does not give one any more feel for his decision to run, nor if he is ready to challenge the front runners.

And we’re clamoring all over a SENATOR? (And I’ve heard the argument over and over again right herethat a Senator can’t win a presidential election).

You can throw that old cannard out the window if it's former Senator Thompson vs. Senator Clinton or Senator Obama someone from the Senate will be President.

You're right about Romney though. The problem with him is that his social conservative credentials are a little thin...no matter what he says today. In 1994 he ran to the left of Ted Kennedy fr that Senate seat. One gets the feeling that he's willing to say whatever he thinks his audience wants to hear. I don't completely trust him and I'm not sure that he's a real conservative.

Let’s set the facts straight. You said per the Fox news article, Reid never said the war is “lost”. The article DOES NOT contain everything he said, but the quote under the headline sure says it. And every MSM, etc. says the same thing.

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday said the war in Iraq is lost militarily and “can only be won diplomatically, politically and economically” after more than four years of fighting”.

Lying is a false statement made with deliberate intent.

I also checked Netflix for "Marie", which was Fred's first movie role, playing himself. It's not there either. I remember seeing it in the mid-80's, and was impressed with Fred then, as I was impressed with him back during the Watergate hearings.
