TOPICS: Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: 2008; election; fredthompson; integrity
This pretty much confirms it for me. Fred has NOTHING on him. Nothing!! He truly has the best conservative bone fides and the most integrity. Ron Paul has the letters, Mitt lies (OMG! An ex-VC lies?!). McCain, Julie-Annie, and Huckster are all CORRUPT! Don't bother with the dims, I think we know what's in their closet.

I notice Duncan Hunter’s name is missing. This is one time I’m glad he’s been left of a list! I have never heard a bad thing about him.

‘Fred has NOTHING on him.’

Give it a few minutes. I’m sure the Fred na-sayers will be along to straight that out for you.

These lists are stupid.
Steve Forbes a draft dodger, he is blind as a bat.
Some of the items listed are innuendo at best, speculating and misinterpretation.

Sorry, not impressed. Hillary Clinton's dirt doesn't include half the stuff. Should have more on Travelgate, Filegate, the comment "I will take it from them for the common good", Hillarycare.

Sorry, so far the page just slings weak mud. That's all.

The only thing on Fred seems to be, he dates good looking women. Why anyone would think that is wrong is beyond me.

I’ve conversed with the author of this website, and I am certain that he is a Liberal Democrat posing as an “objective” person. Take everything he says with a grain of salt.

Richard Nixon insulted him...
He had clients he did not agree with, as a lawyer...
He likes young women....
He leased a pickup.....
He told Nixon that the committee knew about the tapes....

That’s it!!!! Pretty petty stuff!!!

CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington..
SOROS-funded), spent a year, in conjunction with the San Diego Union, trying to get dirt on Duncan Hunter.
They thought it would be easy, as they had just toppled Randy “Duke” Cunningham.
After a year of digging, they found that Duncan’s house had been undervalued- (He lives in his District—what a concept!)by the County Assessor. They then accused Duncan of not paying enough taxes.

Well, it's not true that Fred has NOTHING on him. How about this quotation from his former boss, Richard Nixon (which I have suitably edited):

"Oh, s**t! That kid? He's dumb as hell." -- Richard Nixon, on Watergate tapes, after being told Fred Thompson was hired as Republican counsel.

CHICAGO FARMER-
I know I’m new, and you have been on FR for long time, so I’ll choose my words carefully. GO TO HELL. Why don’t you see my post history before making BASELESS claims. I am a member of the Dane County Republican Party!
If you read the post title, the main purpose of the post was to show how clean Fred is. I would think it would be obvious that the dems are corrupt, considering BOTH of the likely candidates are on Judicial Watch’s Top Ten Corrupt Politicians of 2007. You owe me an apology.

I won't get into the insult fight, but this clarification should be emphasized.

In other words, there is nothing wrong with posting this, but it should be clarified what kind of site this is, and that this is the worst dirt that the left could find on the Republican candidates, whereas the Dems are let off easy.

There, is, in fact, one lie about Fred that I noticed. It is NOT TRUE that he worked as a lobbyist for a pro-abortion outfit, as this site claims. That was the initial charge, made by two of hillary's stooges. But as the explanations came out, the truth was that Fred did NOT work for this organization. One of his colleagues at the firm did. Fred did not. He was not on record as ever having been paid.

The story was that he talked in the hallway with a colleague who was doing the lobbying, who asked Fred for advice of some kind. Even that story is not proven, but only testified to by clintonoids. It is not in the records, since no one was paid for a hallway conversation. Fred says he doesn't remember. Naturally enough, who would remember a brief hallway conversation many years earlier, if it ever took place?

I hardly think this undermines Fred's consistently pro-life record while in office. A major pro-life organization considered all of the candidates and endorsed Fred, after this fake revelation came out.

“Oh, I’m so tired of big government Republicanism I could almost support Paul.”

I can certainly understand why you feel this way. There’s still a chance Fred could place 3rd in IA, and maybe pull out a win in SC. BTW, are you sure you have the quote in your tagline correctly attributed? I thought Hitler said that.

Re: The Klintoons
Please correct me if I am wrong but I notice that there is no reference on realchange.org to the missing F.B.I. files that mysteriously disappeared and then all of a sudden reappeared in the WH during the Klintoon administration.
I suspect that those files were all copied and the Klintoons have them locked up someplace.
I refer to them as the Klintoons’ “J.Edgar Hoover” insurance policy. As long as they have copies of those F.B.I. files they and their minions will never see a day behind bars...as proven by Fat Sandy Burlgars’s questionable “sweetheart deal” that he received for stealing classified documents from the National Archives.

Definitely a slanted view of the Pubs vs. the Dems.

Fred was a lady’s man cradle robber (24 year age difference) who ended up with a trophy wife dressed like a slut.

Dennis was just “Looking for love” dating different women until he found his (31 year younger) wonderful British bride with the pierced tongue.

To be honest, I didn’t really read any of the stuff on the dems. That would be like going outside to check if the sky was blue. I just wanted to point out dirt on the corrupt Republican candidates so we know who they are and don’t take steps to nominate them. I also wanted to point out that Fred seems really, really clean. It’s probably redundant for Julie-annie, but there are some FReepers who support McCain and Huckabee.
Apparently, it’s a Soros-Funded site, so I apologize for not mentioning that in the intro. I’ll be more careful about checking sources for sites in the future.

I doubt that. The "Skeleton Closet" has been around for many years, probably before Soros got involved in American politics. It has always been the same: containing some interesting facts but overall seeming uneven with a fairly slim amount of material and not too great depth of research. The main problem seem to be that the author doesn't really devote that much time to the site.

At least he didn’t cheat on his wife, which is more than we can say about a certain former president who now wants to become “First Laddie”.
