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?
He will announce that he is endorsing Romney, but will bungle it and refer to him as his close friend "Mitch".
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. We have no idea if this will be an endorsement, and raising expectations for a big one won’t help if it isn’t the case.
Will someone buy me a beer if Rush shows up in Iowa after flying EIB-1 in and endorse him :-)!
Hey a guy can dream can't he :-) !
I seriously doubt this is a drop out announcement—word in the field is that he may do surprisingly well. Do not pay attention to the polls—they are wildly inaccurate for Iowa and even in them the strength of “support” seems flimsy and the margins of error substantial.
Visibilty is now the purview of the MSM, has been since the “five-o-clock shadow” debates between Kennedy, Nixon.
Welcome to FR.
Only time and the ADMIN MODS can tell
Could be the thing to push him to the top.
You better get out your crying towell, bud, you’re going to be needing it. And I hope that what will happen over the next week will shut up the liars and frauds.
Fred is not dropping out. There is absolutely no reason for him to do so. He will win the nomination.
Do you really suppose that Free Republicans would jump to support a liberal candidate like Mitt Romney? That would be like admitting that conservatism is dead.
If Fred is gone, there is no reason to stop telling the truth about Romney.
Maybe he saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico.
Some folks have no idea.
Go FRed Go!
I do think it might be an endorsement from the NRA.”
I doubt it. Huckabee is good on guns. Why would the NRA waste political capital to support one good guy on guns against another good guy on guns - especially when they would be picking a guy, Thompson, who really has no chance at all.
I think the NRA is more savvy than that. But, if you are right, I agree it would be big for Fred.
I’m glad someone is wearing the “Humor Cap” today and gets it.
Yeah. The bags under his eyes look like they could do 75,000 miles, tho.
FRED THOMPSON will not be dropping out! FRED has picked up the most distinguished endorsements of any candidate, however, the MSM will simply not cover the endorsements. The MSM wants Huckabee because that Huckelberry can be beat by any democRAT! Rudy looks better to me that Huckelberry.
HOWEVER...that will not happen. FRED THOMPSON was be our candidate and next President!
