Will blog later.
Do you think he will finally announce ANY policy at all?
Its a marathon not a sprint.
There is only one true conservative in the race.
McCain is a tested and true conservative in the mold of Reagan.
McCain is the reincarnated Burke.
Have you been illegally downloading from Bull Moose’s iPod?
There is no difference between Thompson and McCain.
Thompson is only in the race to build support for McCain. Thompson will drop out and all his supporters will go to McCain, even if they don’t know it yet.
One time, McCain shook Reagan’s hand, and ever since then, McCain has been able to channel Reagan’s thoughts and policies.
There is a picture of McCain in the Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of “conservative”.
“There is only one true conservative in the race.”
Yes, and his name is Newt Gingrich, though I think you can argue that FT is conservative also.
Surely you know that every piece of legislation McCain touched is appreciated by conservatives everywhere.
Since McCain is the one true conservative who can win in November, and since he’s running a marathon, shouldn’t he be getting an endorsement from Nike? That might give him money to compete with Ron Paul.
Yeah, that Medicare Prescription Drug bill Newt personally lobbied house members to vote for is pretty damn conservative–if by conservative you mean expensive-as-hell entitlement that’ll never go away.
It conserves the national debt, does it not?
let us know if Fredrick says anything of substance, heh
Oh, and it’s ironic to hear “the real conservative” Newt talk about illegal immigration, especially since it was Newt and Grover who enlisted Ralph Reed to lobby conservative members to oppose the 1996 immigration reform bill for which every Republican member of the Georgia delegation was fighting.
I think Fred probably offered as much substance in his appearance in Atlanta as a fly on a frog’s back.
You all know that McCain is everything Rugby_Fan said an more!
Let me say that one thing Fred Thompson does offer that other candidates can’t is the assurance that Watergate will ensure that corruption will be an issue that is discussed during the upcoming elections.
Newt’s lining up a major September operation and announcement.
Yes, Newt’s announcement has to do with the American Solutions that he is launching. I do not think that Newt gets into this race.
I tend to view Newt as our modern day wiseman in a similar way that Benjamin Franklin was to his generation.
Again, when you say Watergate, I say Keating 5.
Newt’s announcement? Is it that he’s written a sequel to 1945? Eugh. How many trees have to die for that thing?
He’s written quite a few since then. Actually it’s co-authoring.
And he’s tying it to the aniversary of the Contract from 1994. Add that to when he’s told media he will decide whether to run for Prez or not. Oh the significance of September. Media attention? Hype?
I know. I was just joking around.
I recall at the time that 1945 held the record for highest percentage of a first printing to be returned to the publisher unsold. I think Roll Call had a story about most of them being recycled, while they also passed off to used bookstores what they could.
No, Jacks Post, I was referring to an article that talked about Thompson’s role in the Watergate era. He was Chief Republican Counsel on the Senate committee looking into Watergate.
That’s all. I read, and I can’t find it now, an article on it.
The MSM will focus on everything but the issues (some of them that is).
I saw some article referencing Thompson actually being Nixon’s ears in the Senate’s investigations of Watergate. That might have been linked on Politico.
That’s the post to the story. I do NOT want to be talking about THAT on the way to 2008! Please tell me I’m not alone…
Bull Moose, you need to do your homework. This is article has already been discredited.
It was nothing more than a liberal smear attack on Fred Thompson to try and stop his growing momentum.
The REAL CONSERVATIVE IS
M I K E H U C K A B E E L I E V E I T !
Just like Reagan –
he is deemed too socially consercative-
And yet THE ONLY FAIR TAX supporter
in the line up!
Any MIKE HUCKABEE FOLKS!
What, or who, is:
“M I K E H U C K A B E E L I E V E I T”
“Among Republicans, only Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, raised a significant amount in Georgia, drawing $405,761, or nearly two-thirds of the entire Republican take. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., raised $112,578 and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani took in $88,150.”
Peach, Huckabee is a good man. Please do not ruin his reputation.
I believe that this will be Fred Thompson’s Swift Boat Veterans problem. You can’t take credit for bringing down Nixon when you were tipping them off the whole time.
Decaturguy, that’s ridiculous. Thompson wrote about this in his own book 32 years ago. It’s neither revelation nor scandal.
GOPeach, I had previously said that, due to his performance in the debates so far, only Mike Huckabee had earned the privilege of sharing the stage in the future with the declared “big three,” and that the other six could go home. That was an endorsement of his debate success, not his nanny-state “compassionate conservative” moderate Republican politics.
Now that you’re on his side, I’ve changed my mind. He can go home with the other six, and leave the Big Three declared candidates to run.
Does anyone have a copy of this book? And what makes his version (if this is truly his) fact as opposed to any other version? Perhaps more research is in order rather than automatic assumption that this is true?
I think Laura Mallory burned all the know copies of the book because it was satanic.
In terms of cash on hand to run a campaign, it seems that the “big three” for Republicans is now Guliani, Romney, and Ron Paul http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2007/07/ron-paul-tops-m.html
A) McCain is NOT a true conservative, or any kind of conservative.
B) He’s damn near broke; if indeed he were a true conservative, he would not have already spent $25million of his $27million.
I was mocking Bull Moose’s stale, trite rhetoric, repeated ad nauseam.
Heh. RJL, I’ll go ahead and set the over/under for Ron Paul’s primary vote getting at 0.4%
Jeff, I will bet Fred pulls >2.5 you want to take a bet on that?
OK Rugby…thanks for clearing that up.
Are you serious? Fred Thompson, less than 2.5%? Sure bro; sign me up for that one 🙂
Ok, so when he earns 2.8% of the vote you will offer me what?
Don’t beat up on an old worn out man. But if you do, keep in mind that he has more than 2 million of campaign debt that already off sets his 2m on hand.
Peach goes from Rudy to Fred to Huckabee.
GOPeach? Schizophrenic? No…
Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Ron Paul supporter per se (I think he’s wrong to lead the country, but I think he offers some ideas that are good and while I disagree with him on some things, he makes some valid points), but I think Jeff’s over/under is a little low. Also, I believe Rugby used the MORE than 2.5 sign for Fred, not the less than sign. Ron Paul will be the one pulling the 2.5 %, perhaps more. Fred will of course take Georgia, with Guiliani and Romney rounding out the top 3, in that order.
