In “Why Fred Thompson Will Win,” Peter Mulhern, over at Real Clear Politics, with only one glaring exception, recapitulates much of my view of the Nomination Race.
The article is so full of insight, penetrating analysis and incisive rhetoric, that I thought for a moment I had written it. Lol. Continue reading
Just in case you didn’t get one of these…
It was mentioned here the other day, that Fred Thompson had joined the “three headed RINO” in snubbing Joseph Farah and Phyllis Sclafly, by avoiding the upcoming “Values Voters” debate. Here’s what Farah, founder and CEO of of World Net Daily had to say in his latest column, The GOP Gutless Wonders:
Would you elect a man president of the United States who was afraid of tough questioning from Phyllis Schlafly or Star Parker?
Would you consider voting for a man who had better things to do than to talk to an audience of millions concerned about the assault on family values?
What would you say to front-running GOP presidential candidates who take your vote for granted because they think you have nowhere to go?
These are some of the questions you should be pondering today as we get ready for a Republican presidential debate next Monday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – a debate in which four major contenders will be conspicuously absent.
They are: Willard “Mitt” Romney, Rudolph Giuliani, John McCain and Fred Thompson.
I, for one, am particularly disappointed in Thompson, who has not yet participated in a single GOP debate. This one would have been his first opportunity since officially announcing his candidacy. He could have changed all the dynamics. He could have made this debate the biggest national news story of the day. He could have forced others to join the debate.

Mayor Giuliani, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, and Senator McCain are all declining to participate in a September 17 debate in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., that’s being hosted by an umbrella social-conservative group called ValuesVoter.org. Social conservatives will be upset; other conservatives might well be heartened by the waning power of the religious right.
A number of second-tier Republican candidates have confirmed attendance at the event, according to the news site WorldNetDaily.com, whose editor, Joseph Farah, is slated to moderate the debate. They include Rep. Duncan Hunter, Mike Huckabee, Rep. Tom Tancredo, Senator Brownback, Rep. Ron Paul, and John Cox.
Apparently stung by Fred Thompson’s blog commentary, Tuesday, the Giuliani Presidential Campaign reacted quickly and decisively – with all the satirical fury of a transvestite scorned. When you realize how serious the problem is, you’ll know why they got their back up. Continue reading
“…the same activist federal judge from Brooklyn who provided Mayor Giuliani’s administration with the legal ruling it sought to sue gun makers, has done it again. Last week, he created a bizarre justification to allow New York City to sue out-of-state gun stores…”
From Fred Thompson … Continue Reading…
