Skip to comments.Fred Thompson "Surprise" Announcement today
Posted on 12/26/2007 7:55:28 AM PST by Onerom99
Rumor circulating on the Fred08 blog that there is going to be a major "surprise" announcement coming this morning.
Perhaps an NRA endorsement or a major political figure?
Sure, it’s his money, inherited from Daddy.
Arrogance does not mean pointing out the obvious.
‘he knocks off Huckabee and Romney in Iowa, the MSM will have to cover him.’
That is a big and unlikely if. Fred had his momentum, the loss of it cannot be blamed on MSM or other candidates.
Go Fred Go. The ONLY Conservitive in the Herd. Everyone else is just flapping in the wind to see what the latest Freaking POL says and marches in that direction.
“B Clinton was not good looking without power. If he were the average loser, he would never see the action he gets now.
Women can overlook physical flaws. Men tend to not do that.
Example, I think Samuel Alito and John Roberts are very attractive. Part of their attractiveness is their intelligence.
Brad Pitt does nothing for me, his skull is empty.”
I don’t really have a problem with Fred.
He’s probably my second choice.
Do you know why he chose to attack Fox News a few weeks ago?
I notice that you use a 15 or 20-year old picture of Hunter. Why is that?
Wrong. His father never had that kind of money. Mitt made his own money and he did it himself. His business acumen is remarkable and shouldn't be ignored.
I'm a Fred guy but you gotta give a man credit where credit's due. But heck...no matter who's money it is he still hasn't been able to buy the nomination.
Those guys could walk on water and still wouldn’t beat Hillary.
Only Thompson, MCCain, or Rudy have a chance to beat her.
My father always said “the only thing you’ll find in the middle of the road is dead possums” or armadillos if you’re in the lower South. ;)
Rush has really wasted his influence. Rush should have been stumping for Fred a LONG time ago. We know Rush is not a fan of the Huckster, but he does seem to have a soft spot for Romney. Rush used to always criticize President Bush for not using the bully pulpit, and when it comes to Fred, Rush really drops the ball. Fred is really the only candidate worth getting semi-excited about. Let’s hope Rush comes to his senses, and makes the big push because it’s almost too late. We’re going to wake up with nutty McCain, or Obama, so now would be a good time, Rush.
“Romney’s candidacy then collapses..because one year of hard work and tens of millions of his own money couldn’t “buy” him a win.”
Actually his meeting with his church leadership about the presidency was more than two years ago.
Actually, in the stupid "get to know the candidates" questionnaire, he refers to his "favorite possession" as "my trophy wife", in a clear tweak those who have called Jeri just that.
Is that your wife in the pink dress? You post it so often, you must enjoy sharing your undying affection for her;)
I'd add...dead chances for a conservative administration if Romney, McCain, Guiliani, or Huckabee are nominated.
That's just plain not true. He made his millions from Bain Capital, a company he founded. A retraction and apology for your slander would be warranted. There are grounds to dislike Romney, but that does not justify lying about him.
It happens all the time and we all know it. They are quickly zotted and it is the reason for the acronym IBZT.
I hate to break the news to you, but armadillos have found their way to the MID South. You see them with their little feet in the air every place now.
See post #171.
Take a deep breath.....
Let it out.
Might you do as you preach.
Now *that* is funny. No dirt on Fred? An attorney who spent his life as an attorney, politician, lobbyist, and actor has no skeletons? Puh-leaze. The MSM isn't scared of Fred. It's just that there's no use beating a horse that hasn't even left the starting gate.
“Your comment is not that far afield from the pole dancing posts that got one guy banned...and rightfully so.”
Didn’t FRED!! refer to Jeri(with an “I”!) as his “trophy wife”?
I see them all the time in Marshall County when I visit my parents. They showed up the same time the fire ants did. Wonder how long before the “Killer bees” get here?
Asked and answered. Why repeat the question?
>>I expect it is a big-time endorsement. Fred needs to kick-off the post-Christmas campaign swing. As much as Huckabee would like it, nobody is going to be taking time off from campaigning between now and Epiphany.<<
Agreed. Its pretty clear he is not gonna win Iowa or New Hampshire so he need to make the case that he has strength for a long run with better states to come.
Now, what would really help would be a strong speech from Fred to go along with a big endorsement.
.Sincerity is everything. If you can fake that, youve got it made.
What was the screen name of the poster who posted pic's of Jeri Thompson pole dancing?
You don't know. Because that poster was a disruptor who was quickly spotted and zotted.
Most dishonest of you to use that example to smear the regular FR posters who support Mitt.
I guess I have a weird sense of humor, but attacks like that always seem to hit my funnybone, no matter where they are aimed.
“I suppose it could be that Fred is endorsing Romney.”
You might be right.
It’s the smart move for FRED!!—kingmaker.
Don't be so naive.
Mitt had every advantage in business -- access to a gold-plated network and tens of millions of dollars in capital.
That's the kind of silver spoon he had from daddy.
Yes, he made the most of his advantages, but to pretend he doesn't owe his wealth to his family & connections is laughable.
He inherited his seed money and connections from Daddy.
Yes, Romney made his fortune larger, but that, candidly, is easy to do when your daddy was HUD secretary, senator, head of a multi-national car company, and multi-multi-millionaire.
It’s nice, but it’s expected; nothing special.
Reminds me of Donald Trump. Yes, he’s reasonably wealthy. Supposedly a great businessnessman. But, candidly, if he put his tremendous inheritance in mutual fund, he would have had a lot more.
So they’re migrating. lol
I’m from the upper South, VA but I live in northern NC now. We don’t have them here at least not that I have seen. We used to see them when we went to visit my husband’s father in Albany, GA. We lived in Atlanta then and only saw them in southern GA and westward toward TX where my husband is from originally.
The question remains though...where were they?
DEAD, squished in the middle of the road! LOL
“Only a gut felling, but you are right. If Fred should drop out after Iowa, he will definitely throw his support to McCain.”
Watch the Fredheads meltdown if he endorses McQueeg...
I do know. I'm trying to recall. He was no more a fly-by-night disruptor than half a dozen other Willardians who signed up this year to shill for Myth.
To the pinglist: what was the screenname of the poster banned for the "pole dancer" picture posts?
“I have here in my hand a list of two hundred and five people that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping the policy of the State Department.”
Joseph R. McCarthy
A: To show the armadillo it can be done.
What’s that supposed to prove?
He did, and he was right. Google up the term “venona.”
I'll pick McCain before Huck or Rudy.... if it comes down to that.
He ain’t dropping out-I just got an e-mail asking for another contribution two minutes ago (yes, I gave).
“Hes going to announce hes running.”
LOL. About time.
No. I like natural redheads... Preferably English...
And to state that he "inherited" his money from his father is an outright lie.
Perhaps if Rush came out now and endorsed a primary candidate, his endorsement would be considered a “donation”. But then, Opra’s endorsement was not considered a donation to Obama. I think Jason Wilson sitting in today and Mark Billings in tomorrow and Friday will be an indirect endorsement of Fred. GO FRED!
Mitt's wheels might be coming loose. It appears he flopped when he should have flipped.
LOL - was the armadillo looting and pillaging too?
