Are you ready for Freddy?


There's something new...in the Presidential race, and on my sidebar.

Fred Thompson has finally, after much "grassroots" support, thrown his proverbial hat into the ring.

I've read a few of his editorials, and seen a few of his promotional videos, not to mention some of his (other!) acting performances; thus far, I have liked what he's had to say.

For those who don't know, he hasn't just played a politician on television, he's been one on the Federal level as one of the Senators for Tennessee. He stepped down voluntarily a few years ago, which indicates (to me, at least) that he isn't the typical politician.

So unless he has some unforeseen "skeletons in the closet", I'm hoping he gets the Republican Party's nomination.

I haven't been too terribly impressed by the rest of the choices so far...

This is going to be a very interesting campaign. And I am going to enjoy it no matter which way it goes.

I'm interested in Fred too...we'll see how he holds up.

I think he's a down-to-earth kinda guy. He seems to have good ol' fashioned conservative values. I just hope he doesn't turn out to be another disappointment.

I wish him well in his run.

Best regards...

I am going to make a confession here. No, I'm not a Democrat, though I live in a 95 percent Democratic district.

It is just I have not listened to more than a few soundbites on ANY canadate yet. I will soon announce that my mind is in campaign mode on the Leno show.

Hey, anybody who has three cute kids like those, has to have something going for him.

Just kidding.

Hawkeye®:
I think he's "down-to-earth", too.

We shall see.

Ms RightWing:
I'm sure we'll have more than enough opportunities to hear all of the candidates out.

Maggie:
Go Freddy, go!

Barb:
Heh, heh...

You're right, Thompson seems to best of the bunch. By far.

I am not sure about Fred, yet, but he seems to be saying the right things. I'm just not sure he's saying them because he believes them, as opposed to saying them because he thinks it will get him elected.

I am adopting a "wait and see" attitude...

Grant:
He does seems to be the best of the bunch...although with this bunch, that's not saying much, unfortunately.

Beerme:
He is saying the right things. I hope it's because he believes them; his record in Senate is mostly favorable.

Adopting a "wait and see" attitude is certainly sensible...

Island Girl TLA:
Fred's wife Jeri is 40, he's 65. Who's Denise Richards?

I think a good way to learn about Fred and his views is to read his editorials.

Oh yeah; and eleventeen...

As you undoubtedly know, the left-leaning "MSM" will get as much mileage out of whatever they can to besmirch a conservative candidate.

And that's the way it is...
