    Eric-

    It seems like Huckabee is a “Pro-Life Democrat”.
    It seems like Rudy is a “Tax-Cut Democrat”.
    It seems like Ron Paul is a “Anti -War Libertarian”.

    Fred Thompson – would fit the description of a solid republican as he was endorsed by the NRTL ( who condemn babies conceived by rape). The moderates will like that because that allows the money to still be spent to fund the millions and millions of abortions that are NOT a result of rape.

    I know it seems like I drill that idea. But it is the way it goes and you as a Senator know that is how it plays out … even here in GA. I pray to God you will find it in your heart to vote YES on

    Decisions, decisions – the Arkansas Huckleberry? or the Tennessee Hillbilly? the Massachusetts Mor(m)on? Or Rudi – Queen of 9/11…

  3. GOPeach says:

    Look… I am known to be “hot” for my age… at least that is what they say… Older people say I look like Sandra Dee. As a mother of 5, I am stacked like this lady… but Honey, I don’t let anyone but judge seek Peach’s peaches!!! 🙂

  4. GOPeach says:

    I strongly suggest Jeri hide her jugs a little more – She’s pretty enough without hanging out at photo ops!…. Think more ” Jackie Kennedy”… Smart and tailored dresses.

    Just a few suggestions for any of the Thompson image consultants. Peach will say what most ONLY THINK!

  5. Mark Rountree says:

    Eric,

    The problem is, Fred’s campaign team has not been willing to consistently articulate these points as a full message. So you and the volunteers are left to do it.

    That’s a big problem.

    The points you outline are all concerns that led me to support Fred early and to be vocal about it.

    Why won’t this campaign or the candidate JUST SAY IT??? He’s unwilling to truly differentiate himself from the other Republicans. And he’s the only one with a record as an elected official that actually generally matches his campaign positions.

  6. RuralDem says:

    Does Fred Thompson even know if he’s going to run yet? Sure, he is on the stage at the debates, but he looks like a deer in headlights.

    One of the other candidates needs to introduce Thompson to their friend, charisma, because apparently Thompson and charisma have never met.

  7. RuralDem says:

    Oh, and I think Huckabee could draw a ton of support from independents and moderate/conservative Democrats, especially if Obama is the Democratic nominee.

  8. Jason Pye says:

    You do realize that Dick Morris isn’t being objective at all. He and Huckabee are friends and is giving him advice.

    Bob Novak is dead on about Tax Hike Mike.

  9. Mark Rountree says:

    GOPeach,

    Since Ron Paul is joining the Democrats and the Russians and the Chinese in demanding a fast pull out from Iraq, how do you square this with winning the war against Islamofascists?

    Libertarians who put their head in the sand on this war are just as dangerous as Democrats. We need to win this war.

    Let’s call a spade a spade: this guy is a fool. I respect libertarians who understand winning wars. But not this guy.

  10. Mark Rountree says:

    clarification: ” just as dangerous as Democrats” doesn’t mean all Democrats.

    “just as dangerous as Democrats” as written above means “just as dangerous as Democrats who demand a fast pull out from Iraq” (Kucinich, Obama, Dean).

  11. Carpe Forem says:

    Mark,
    You are misrepresenting Ron Paul. He believes in a strong national defense, (not offense or nation building). Like our constitution says, the congress shall declare war, when warranted. Then and only then the President as Commander in Chief, executes the war. Get in, win and get out. During peace time, we have open free trade and we lead the world by example, not by force. Look above, even Ronald Reagan got it right when talking about Paul. He and Reagan were good friends and very like minded and very similar to the Governor of SC, Mark Sanford. Bush senior use to accuse Reagan of being too libertarian. Just as his famous quote about the scariest thing an American can hear, “I’m with the government, and I’m here to help.” Small but strong, non intrusive government, just like Reagan, was/is Ron Paul’s ultimate goal.

  12. Carpe Forem says:

    Oh, and yes, I’ll be voting for Paul in Febuary and November, regardless of what happens in the primaries. Time for the era of BIG Government to truely end.

  13. Chris says:

    Carpe,

    The best defense is a good offense. One of the major lessons to be taken from Europe in WWII is that its best to fight a war on someone else’s soil.

    I probably agree with Dr. Paul on more issues than any other candidate. But I disagree with him on all the issues that he seems to focus on (Iraq, the Fed, NAFTA/Trade Agreements).

  14. gatormathis says:

    That Ms Thompson is actually “extremely” fine.

    My only suggestion would be for the Senator to set his ratio at a minimum of 2 Geritol for every viagra taken.

  15. Bull Moose says:

    Look at where Thompson is campaigning most and see how the voters who are able to see him up close and personal are reacting.

    In Iowa, Thompson is third place. In New Hampshire Thompson is in sixth place. In South Carolina, his so called bastion of strength, he is in fourth place.

    Now as for his conservative credentials, Thompson is by no means the savior of the GOP nor is he the second coming of Ronald Reagan. Thompson is a nice guy and if he were just running as Fred Thompson he’d probably be doing better than those who want him to be Fred Reagan.

    The truth of the matter is that the real and only consistent conservative in this race continues to be John McCain. McCain is the only candidate running who has taken tough stands on the important issues facing our country.

    > The best defense is a good offense.

    You’re confusing responsible foreign policy with a football playbook. Probably has to do with all the BCS rankings threads on this Georgia politics blog.

    John McCain is the man to lead America
    By PUBLISHER JOSEPH W. MCQUAID

    21 hours, 48 minutes ago

    On Jan. 8, New Hampshire Republicans will make one of the most important choices for their party and nation in the history of our presidential primary. Their choice ought to be John McCain.

    We don’t agree with him on every issue. We disagree with him strongly on campaign finance reform. What is most compelling about McCain, however, is that his record, his character, and his courage show him to be the most trustworthy, competent, and conservative of all those seeking the nomination. Simply put, McCain can be trusted to make informed decisions based on the best interests of his country, come hell or high water.

    Competence, courage, and conviction are enormously important for our next President to possess. No one has a better understanding of U.S. interests and dangers right now than does McCain. He was right on the mistakes made by the Bush administration in prosecuting the Islamic terrorist war in Iraq and he is being proved right on the way forward both there and worldwide.

    McCain is pro-life. Always has been. He fights against special-interest and pork-barrel spending, and high spending in general, which ticks off liberals and many in the GOP who have wallowed at the public trough. Yet he also has the proven ability, unique among the contenders, to work across the political divide that has led our government into petty bickering when important problems need to be solved.

    We have known John McCain for many years. We will write more about him in the days ahead. For now, we leave you with this to ponder:

    When McCain was shot down and taken prisoner by the North Vietnamese, he was repeatedly beaten. When his captors discovered that his father was a top U.S. admiral, they ordered him released for propaganda purposes. But McCain refused, insisting that longer-held prisoners be released before him. So they beat him some more. He never gave in then, and he won’t give in to our enemies now.

    John McCain is the man to lead America.

    “Bomb random Muslim nations all you want”.

    An important point is that Iraq was a secular Arab state before the invasion.

    It may very well become a Muslim state.

  19. Listen Here says:

    Well, I won’t be joining Eric. He must be enamored by that good looking gal on Thompson’s shoulder.

    I can only give my vote to an ethical and principled statesman, Dr. Paul. It would be morally debase and an insult to conservative values to hand it to these politicians.

    Everyone wants the commercial, sound bite friendly candidate to beat Clinton. Watch the woman, she’s going to crash and burn in a debate against Ron Paul.

    Silly ole Eric… …why don’t you get back to complicating Georgia laws and attracting unwanted attention to Georgia with all your shenanigans?

    My apology to all you Eric Johnson fan boys.

  20. IndyInjun says:

    If it is Huckersbee versus Hillary, will it be a race to see who can steal the most furniture from the executive mansion, as she did from the White House and he did from the Governor’s mansion in Little Rock?

    Hail to the THIEF!

  21. Bill Simon says:

    If it wasn’t for those “gay civil unions,” we would not been attacked on 9/11 and Al-Quaidi in Iraq would be fighting with us against the insurgents.

    (or so ignorant morons like GOPeach and ANYONE else who throws in the “gay civil unions” bullsh*t into an argument for or against any candidate think.)

    Huckabee Scholars

    Huckabee ran afoul of the facts when defending his failed proposal to make children of illegal immigrants eligible for state college scholarships:

    Huckabee: I supported a bill that would have allowed those children who had been in our schools their entire school life the opportunity to have the same scholarship that their peers had who had also gone to high school with them and sat in the same classrooms. They couldn’t just move in in their senior year and go to college. … [It] said that if you’d sat in our schools from the time you’re 5 or 6 years old and you had become an A-plus student, you completed the core curriculum, you were an exceptional student, and you also had to be drug and alcohol free, and the other provision, you had to be applying for citizenship.

    Actually, the bill Huckabee pushed for in his 2005 State of the Union address did not apply only to “those children who had been in our schools their entire school life.” It required only three years in an Arkansas high school to be eligible. And students did not have to be “applying for citizenship,” but rather they had to sign an affidavit stating their intent to do so in the future. All students who apply for state scholarships must “certify that they are drug-free” and “pledge to refrain from alcohol” if they are under 21, just as Huckabee said. But they certainly don’t have to be “an A-plus student.” The state requires a solid “B” average (a 3.0 average on a 4.0 scale). And the state may reduce that to a 2.5 average if sticking with the higher requirement “would unduly reduce the number of low-income or disadvantaged students who would otherwise be eligible for the program.” That’s a C-plus average.

    The bill passed the Arkansas House but failed in the Senate. Later, a pared down version that would grant illegals in-state tuition breaks, but not scholarship rights, failed two votes short of passage.

    It should not surprise any of us that Billy Bob once again twists the facts to think his own San Francisco way!…. you’d think he was nursed at the breast of Nancy Peloci herself!

    It was Rugby who brought up the whole ” consenting adults” topic -/ Dec 2, 2007 at 5:35 pm

    I was the one who said I believed AS RON PAUL these matters should be handled on a STATE LEVEL – not Federal.

  24. John Konop says:

    I have a question for all pro long term Iraq war nation building liberals. Why do you think a Country that kills people for practicing Christianity is a functioning democracy? Also why do you guys not support Hillary since she is getting the most money from military contractors?

  25. rugby_fan says:

    Because Debbie brought it up, what is “compassionate conservatism”?

    Is it stigmatizing an entire group of people for their lifestyle (chosen or otherwise), dividing the nation over their lifestyle, and denying them rights because of their lifestyle?

    Or is it having the highest number of executed prisoners in state history while refusing to allow even a consideration of using DNA evidence in murder cases?

    Or is it using government money to promote social welfare abroad and thus requiring an expansion of the government?

    The first two don’t sound compassionate and the last one doesn’t sound conservative.

  26. John Konop says:

    Eric Johnson,

    In all due respect I think William F Buckley has better conservative credentials than you.

  27. EAVDad says:

    Fred Thompson is a lightweight. God Knows we don’t need another one of those in the White House. (See: Bush, George W.) Thompson is a “true”conservative, because he just reads from the GOP script.

    I’d vote for Arthur Branch first! At least he can debate.

    I’m not sure who I’m supporting, but I’m more apt to vote for Guiliani, Huckabee OR Romney before Thompson

  28. GOPeach says:

    THANK GOD!

    President Bush vetoed embryonic stem cell research.

    Look – the foreskins of circumcised babies make for great stem cell research. They are discarded anyway.

  29. debbie0040 says:

    After eight years of Bush I am sick of compassionate conservatism. To me it means big government programs and big spending….

  30. jsm says:

    Peach, I noticed the two pics you linked were the same dress–probably taken on the same night. Why are you so enamored with Mrs. Thompson’s “peaches?”

    Maybe you should focus on something that matters.

    I’m with Thompson on the ISSUES. I just wish he didn’t demonstrate a touch of Mac Collins Syndrome.

  31. GOPeach says:

    jsm –

    Check this out:

    http://www.gambling911.com/Fred-Thompsons-Wife.jpg

    She needs to stop with the cleavage – she looks like a bombshell- ( even if she is not) –

    FRED need to take that pretty little thing to Brooks Bros to buy clothes for public appearances… She needs to look a little more “first lady”….

    She looks more like Fredericks of Hollywood.
    I am sure the Hillary fans would agree…

    Just trying to help FRED.

  32. debbie0040 says:

    Peach, I have also attended events for Huckabee as well. I try to attend any free events on weekends or nights that our GOP candidates have to show support. There were also Huckabee and Romney supporters in attendance.

    Peach you have an obsession w ith Fred’s wife. Wouild you feel better if she looked more like Hillary?

  33. GOPeach says:

    That little Jeri is a cute little thing. She is one of this little trophe wives that are so popular among the Hollywood types.

    Maybe Hillary should dump Bill and marry Brad Pitt!

  34. debbie0040 says:

    The fact he has such a young wife and has no problem keeping her happy dispels the rumor that Fred has a lack of energy and is not enthusiastic.

  35. GOPeach says:

    * She is one of those little trophee wives that are so popular among the Hollywood types.

    …. I get a feeling if FRED wins the Whitehouse – she will take the show! whooo hoooo!

  36. rugby_fan says:

    “The fact he has such a young wife and has no problem keeping her happy dispels the rumor that Fred has a lack of energy and is not enthusiastic.”

    Ha!

  37. GOPeach says:

    Nahhhhh

    I am cool with my looks!

    My sex life rocks! Judge has great genes.
    He still looks GREAT in Jeans, black leather jackets and cowboy boots…. ooooooo eeeeee Baby!

  38. GOPeach says:
