Did they webcast this? I was aware of it but didn’t know if I could see it on the internet. Guess I can see it two days late. How did it go?

Heh heh, CNN was babbling on about "Thompson's Odd Schedule" and how he is not campaigning/going into hiding etc, at the same exact time he was being interviewed live for about 30 – 40 minutes on FOX.

HA!

I have no sound, I am at work. But the closed caption indicated sound answers to all questions.

Hopefully it will be available at Fox news. Fred08.com will have it "as soon as."

It went GREAT! Fred was wonderful and I’m sure his speech this evening at the New York Republican Club will be great too! Wish it was to be covered but will have to wait for it to be posted on his website later. :)

Fred did well. Cavuto (like all of them) talked over him too much, but Fred’s answers were solid. Mostly talked about economic stuff, but also about how Fred will assert Giuliani isn’t a conservative in his speech tonight in NY. They showed a clip of Romney talking about family and asked Fred if the nomination was going to get ugly. Fred said he didn’t think so..hoped not.

At the end Cavuto asked Fred if he would support another republican candidate if they won the nomination. Fred said he didn’t like to think in terms of losing the nomination at this point but Cavuto pushed the question. (I’d bet no Fox anchor would ask this question of Rudy ) Fred said that if somebody else won the nomination he would support them. (paging Dr. Dobson, paging Dr. James Dobson)

Brilliant, this next is for you. Cavuto then asked if Fred would accept a VP role and Fred left no doubt as to his position on that subject. He is most certainly NOT interested.

Thank you prairiebreeze for the report.

I knew he would not accept VP, but I hate it that people keep pushing all this, first it was who would Fred’s VP be, then would Fred be the VP. Nonsense questions unless you are the person to choose.

They discussed the indolent lymphoma. Fred says it’s a fair topic, repeats that he’s never experienced a sick day in his life from this condition. Also pointed out the 2 other republican candidate’s who have cancer histories, although it was Cavuto that named them personally, while Fred demured on that.

Brilliant, this next is for you. Cavuto then asked if Fred would accept a VP role and Fred left no doubt as to his position on that subject. He is most certainly NOT interested.

pardon for the second post,,,I had an error message come up, didn’t realize the first one actually did go through.

I did add another little exchange that I remembered in the meantime.

One would have to choose to be decidedly un-Brilliant to mistake the tone of Fred’s voice and demeanor of his answer.

I think the VP question is in case no one gets enough votes to win the nomination. Who can you cook a deal with, to combine votes to win. I think they’re thinking Fred could have enough votes to help put someone else over the top on delegate count.

I hope Fred does not do this and I don’t think he will. He is the only one who is talking about some issues that I really care about like Social security for instance. It would be hard to do I know, but I can’t see any reason to believe anyone else would try. I care about the future for the sake of my children.

So any other candidate might be a decent person but I know they aren’t going to do the issues that are important to me [maybe right to life]. And maybe they are started in the right direction for different and wrong reasons. So anyone on the Republican side while they might be okay on some issues and silent on others is just going to amount to the lesser of two evils.

Fred has absolutely no benefit from being VP. He likely could not run in 8 years due to age, or maybe not even in 4. Who knows. So he sits there and cannot do any of the things he wants to do and has to support someone else who is a lesser candidate. That would be they want his help but there is NOTHING they could give him in return. He wants to help this country but that will not get it done unless he were the VP and the president dies, and who wants that to happen? Not me.

Such an ignorant question.

I don’t want to see a VP Thompson. If they don’t want him so be it, but there is no one else I can get enthused about or donate to or support strongly. I might be able to vote for them by taking a tranquilizer.

None of the other candidates have anything they could offer Fred so he could even think about being VP. All the usual reasons do not apply. Fred seems motivated to do something to help the country, but I doubt that any of the others even have a chance to get anything done. It is going to be more of the same old can’t get enough votes to get anything done.

Thanks to everybody for the feedback, I just got home from work and will go watch at the link.

It'a getting pretty obvious that the lib MSM doesn't like Fred because he plays his own game and does not fall for the MSM cheap tricks. That has just GOT to pizz them off!

As for the members of this forum that are posting negative remarks... I think it is a shame that you will not enjoy with the rest of us the probable success of FDT because of being too locked into a candidate and not the healing of this Republic.

FDT can win. He has the brains, he has the smooth, no hurry, get it done right the first time, no wasted effort demeanor that it will take to force hildabeast to reveal her true screaming piece of s**t nature. And forcing that communist b***h out into the open will be like putting sunshine on a vampire.

Fred is getting better. I just hope enough conservatives will keep an open mind and judge Fred by his actual, improving performance on the trail in December, January and February. Neither Mitty nor Rooty are getting any better on substance and our nominee won't have to go toe-to-toe with the She-witch for another eleven months. I hope we can concentrate on choosing the guy with the best principles now and then work out later how best to communicate these principles to the American people. It would be wonderful to have an experienced conservative spokesman in the race but there just isn't one.

Yup, they have cast themselves into the outer darkness with their vile, unfair, and ridiculous anti-Fred propaganda.....they are like the foolish virgins who took their lamps but took no oil with them, and they will knock on Fred's door when he gets the nomination and Fred will say "be gone, I do not know ye...."

Fred has said from the get-go he isn’t interested in the VP slot. I thought it was a ridiculous question to end the interview with but otherwise it was a good enough interview by Neil.

Isn't anyone concerned that Fred is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations - CFR? I watched him on TV today, talking about how we must advance foreign trade - and wished he was more like Duncan Hunter - for the "people!"

Thank you for posting these links. It was an excellent interview. The whole thing was so much better than the excerpt. They didn’t have anything up on foxnews this afternoon when I was looking for a link.

It was a great interview.

What our own Republican President is doing (or not doing) right here on U.S Territory makes anything the CFR is promoting look tame. Most supporters of FDT are fully aware of the membership… as is FDT at what some aspects of CFR promotes. Just because he is a member does not mean he brown-noses to their whims. You can not express an opinion AGAINST a proposal by sitting at home.

Of course we must advance foreign trade, we can not run trade imbalances forever. Fred wants a level field in that respect, not a bunch of butt kissing.

Check it out HERE

If you will research my posts you will find that I have supported a Thompson-Hunter ticket since the beginning. Heck, I was probably the first here to suggest it. Your own statement of concern reinforces my belief that FT-DH is the right choice for the nation at this time.
