Skip to comments.George Allen, Liz Cheney spin for Thompson [their headline]
Posted on 10/08/2007 2:12:10 PM PDT by daylilly
One of the fun parts of being the host network of the debate is finding out first who the campaigns are lining up to spin for them post-debate.
The campaign with the most interesting spinners on their team for tomorrow's CNBC/MSNBC/WSJ debate: Fred Thompson. His campaign has requested Spin Room credentials for one-time presidential hopeful/former Virginia Sen. George Allen as well as Liz Cheney, daughter of VP Cheney.

No bias in that headline, no siree......none, whatsoever..............
They said that about all the candidates, as in spinning. So I guess biased against Republicans? Yes, I can see that.
I had to use the headline they had on their website.
Go Fred go!
Does this mean Dick Cheney is rooting for Fred too ?
MSNBC trying to stir up more divisions among Republicans/Conservatives
Watch the posts and comments that show up on this type of lib-media generated thread
The camoed-lib-activists are out now reading from their scripts
Anything from PMSNBC is suspect! Nothing to see here, move along!
“Spin” and “propaganda” mean pretty much the same thing, and while both are usually thought of as pejoratives, they aren’t necessarily so. They’ll be spinning, all right, but that’s what thet’re supposed to do, as everyone else in the “Spin Room” will be spinning too.
Oh oh, I read from the top and can see what’s coming on this thread too!
The comments on their website sounded like DU and were absolutely nasty toward Liz Cheney. What did she ever do to insult anyone? They hate George Allen too, and Fred. And all Republicans and conservatives.
I really like Liz Cheney representing Fred.
Hope to see one of the candidates put Matthews in his place during the debate.
That would really give them something to “spin” about....
Soros plants are in FULL evil mode recently. The EVIL SATANIC LIBERALS motto is “DIVIDE AND CONQUER!! That’s EXACTLY what’s taking root lately here on FR!
Hope he doesn't call Ron Paul a macaca...
Looks that way!
When is this debate to air?
I apologize for that headline, the worst thing about this is the use of the word spin. Plus, I didn’t write that! Is there a way to improve the headline? The article just has a bit of basic information about the debate.
You can ping a mod by hitting abuse on your own post and then write in what you want. LOL, please don’t hit abuse on others!
I don’t know any other way to ping a moderator, have tried writing it in but it says ‘not found’!
I did that. If I change the headline, then you can’t search it, right? I would be glad to change it if I could think of a better way to say it.
Right. I’d leave it alone. Some get upset if you change the original title anyway. I’m not sure you’re supposed to.
Don’t worry about it, lol.
Title (FReeper comment)
Don’t blame yourself
Bad idea, because if you do that and another freeper posts the article after not finding it posted with the original title will get a "all ready posted" I've seen it to many times
Why? What did she accomplish worth anything in 'mideastern affairs'?
Maybe she'll bring in her hubby, big time lockheed Martin lobbyist and associate of Chertoff.
But maybe this is why he (Philip Perry) quit his job as head council for Homeland Security. He said it was to 'spend more time with the family'. He had a bit of a problem when he was head council at DHS.(not to mention questionable prosecutions of border agents at the request of Mexico)
Exposing the Dept. of Job Security (who is Philip Perry?)
[snip]Walker said the problem is "systemic" and not the fault of any single individual. But he complained that GAO has had to go through the office of General Counsel Philip Perry. Perry is married to Elizabeth Cheney, a former State Department official who is one of the vice president's two daughters. Walker said it is his understanding that people from Perry's office have to review documents GAO seeks before they are released and selectively sit in on interviews with department employees.
Yes, read my post #23 Kaslin.
When I said ‘write in’ I meant to be saying ‘ask the mods’ about it.
Chuck Todd... piss-boy for the DNC.
Not sure why some are offended.
I called out a person the other day on the impression that Thompson wasn’t a serious candidate until he officially engaged in “debates”. The reason that person so eagerly wanted the debate, but wasn’t honest enough to admit, is because you don’t really debate. You play “gotcha” the whole night, then your representatives run to the cameras and start ripping your opponents and spinning you as the second coming of the Lord. Or in this Context of a GOP primary fight...It would be Ronald Reagan for conservatives.
It’s already started. Hewitt’s making a fool of himself again by mocking Thompson’s choice of Allen. I wonder if Hugh remembers Allen was a pretty good conservative representative that only barely lost Virginia despite an all out assault by WAPO and a bad year for Republicans? One we could have used about now. Seems to me that attacking Allen who clearly had a lot of support in Virginia and knowledge of its distriicts, is a damn foolhardy move since I bet in the unlikely event Romney did win, Hugh, you would want access to his voter rolls, knowledge of the ins and outs of Virgina and contacts.
I like Allen better then Spencer, that’s for certain. And no, I wasn’t among the number hitching up to the Allen ‘08 Presidential sweepstakes. Count me as someone that was more enamored with the wish Cheney would run. Bringing me to the second name on the list. The Cheney’s are the ONLY ones left in the W.H. I still like. I like her as a choice.
For the others-
— John McCain: S.C. Sen. Lindsey Graham and former Sen. Phil Gramm.
— Mitt Romney: A Michigan focus for his spinners, including brother Scott Romney and ‘06 GOP senate nominee Mike Bouchard.
— Rudy Giuliani: former Mass. Gov. Paul Cellucci (only on Romney duty?) and noted economist Michael Boskin.
Figures Mccain would have Lindsey out there. y
Maybe if Mary Cheney would have been on his campaign team, it would leave the democrats stunned. Would they attack a lesbian?
Hugh Hewitt is becoming more of a shrill shill by the day.
Ghost written by Spritz Matthews...
Well, it IS PMSNBC, after all. I don’t know of many conservatives who watch the network’s line-up.
Democrats don’t spin, they lie. Then MSNBC repeats the lies.
I watched hardball tonight and it seems like Fred has to hit a homerun tomorrow or he will be attacked by the liberal media.
They have already said his campaign is a bust and this debate will make or break him. Seems like they are putting a lot more pressure on him than anyone else.
One thing about Matthews, he is hated by both sides. The moonbats seem to hate him as much as the conservatives do.
They would and they have.
Allen was undisciplined. He made a lot of mistakes.
There was an interesting article in the NYT (I think) comparing an Obama event in IA versus a Thompson event. Obama made sure to actually ask the people to vote for him and his volunteers were getting everyone to fill out contact cards and to volunteer to be captains and to contact others. Volunteers were at every door.
Fred didn't ask anyone to vote for him, didn't collect any names or contact information.
Please spin that form me to explain how a such a lazy, clueless campaign is not going to make for such a lazy, clueless administration? Are you going to try and argue that the R result in IA isn't decided by ground game?
Isn’t that an oxymoron? The left attacking a gay or lesbian?
I remember when Mary Cheney’s book came out. I peaked at DU to see what their take was on it. You would not believe the hatred they had for her, mainly because of who her parents were. I think the left is being consistent. They hate.
correct yo are, they hate. But I think ven the DU is more irrational that even the mainstream far left. Maybe it’s jut me, but I would think a Nancy Pelosi would even be shocked by comments on the DU.
So when Bush’s candidacy barely scraped together a few hundred votes to win the electoral college and lost the popular vote by a nice margin, his candidacy was a bust? because as i recall four years later he comes back and adds to his electoral margins and easily takes the popular vote.
Whoever said Allen ran a great campaign in 2006? I think in many posts even while the campaign was happening I said it wasn’t a good campaign.
which was a surprise because he not only WON his election as Senator but as Governor of that state. An historical fact you seem to dismiss, I presume, because you want to write him off as, I guess, an Alan keyes type of failure.
He won state wide elections in A SWING state when clinton was President. virginia is not exactly utah, no matter how hard you try to paint it as such. The state hasn’t elected TWO successive Democrat Governors because it’s this great vast Bush country.
Guess what? Bad campaigns happen. His record up to this point as a candidate still swings in his favor. When he loses more then he wins, or at least achieves a 50/50 split then you can call him a bust and have a leg to stand on.
As for the latter, I am glad you place such a premium on a NYT’s article.
I have the feeling you think you’ve scored some kind of hit, not sure what though. Thompson is lazy, clueless and blah blah blah. Get new material. Until then, don’t waste my time.
Would MSNBC write a headline like this for a Democrat?
Change Of Plans; Cheney, Allen Will Not Spin For Thompson
From NBC's Chuck Todd
DEARBORN, Mich. -- Quick update from the Thompson campaign. It turns out that both Liz Cheney and George Allen will now NOT be coming to Dearborn to spin for Thompson after tomorrow night's debate. The campaign had initially planned to have both here but scheduling conflicts prevented both from coming.
Organization is huge and so is selling yourself—for ANY executive positoin. Thompson simply doesn’t have it. That he had all of these months to put together a platform and only has this to show for it is just further evidence that he’s pulling things together.
Thompson’s biggest liability was the belief that he might not have the fire in this belly. So what does he do? He waited months on end to announce his candidacy, shuffled around his staff endlessly (including bringing on Spencer Abraham!), and launched his campaign on an incoherent message utterly lacking in substance or detail.
On top of that, he’s bumbled around and managed to anger the social conservatives who supported him as he looked at running.
Amen to that,that guy is floating in money and will sell his soul to get the antichrist elected. Sometimes it seems like DU ganging up on Fred here...
Note to the GOP: Less Spin, MORE SPINE.
