Fred Thompson on Harry Reid’s attacks on Rush Limbaugh

Posted on October 3rd, 2007
By Fred in Announcements

Congressional Democrats are trying to divert attention from insulting our military leader in Iraq and pandering to the loony left by attacking Rush Limbaugh. He is one of the strongest supporters of our troops, yet Democrats claim he is not being strong enough. I wonder who General Petraeus and his troops think is most supportive?

Much better than Willard's knee-jerk drive-by last week.

You beat me to posting! :-)

Rush mentioned this on his show and said it was “A rare act of courage” for Fred to speak up for him. Woohoo, Fred! You da man! :-)

As long as this story stays in the forefront, Rush's ratings and listener-ship goes up, Reid and his cronies lose more credibility, and the Dim candidates are caught between supporting Dingy or Rush.

Gotta love it.

It works here. Perhaps the FredServers are getting hammered just now, what with the Limbaugh reference a few minutes ago.

One of Rush Limbaughs strongest points is his support for the troops. Attacking him on that basis is stupid beyond belief.

I listen to Rush pretty much every day and every time the troops come up he always mentions in what high respect he holds them.

This entire thing is made up and a disgrace to every single person who buys into it.

Way to go Fred. I think Rudy is still trying to calculate whether saying some thing might make him lose those crossover Democrats!

Glad you got some courage Fred. It is needed.

Persistence paid off ... I presume that the server was getting hammered.

I think the webmaster can report to Fred that his words were well received and wisely placed.

Wa-a-ay past time for a major Republican candidate to speak in Rush’s defence. I’ll give Thompson props for doing so, but it should have been said earlier.

And where is the rest of the field? Triangulating?

What room do the Democrats have to talk about how strong someone's support is for the troops? THEIR support for the troops is nil, and this Limbaugh-bashing fiasco is a way to divert public attention away from their own bashing of General Petraeus.

Reid and the loons are pulling the same old Rather out of their magic hat, a fake but accurate narrative to smear and monger hatred for conservatives.

People won’t need to compare fonts to figure out these phony charges from phony patriots are made of the same hateful vapors.

Rush is gonna kick ass on this one.

Fred’s there backing him up ... no cautious PC double speak ... short and to the point ... on target and standing tall.

Dingy Harry will regret stepping into the ring for this fight.

It was a real slow go for me right after Rush mentioned it. I’d love to see the fred08 traffic graph for the time the words were mentioned by Rush.

Ironic, couple of days ago several were posting about Fred not saying anything. Now we have Fred taking the stand above the others.

Nice...

Yup—I can’t get back in there now, LOL!! Go, Fred, GO! :-)
What a shrewd move for his campaign!
