It’s funny, when the rumors started floating that Thompson was thinking about entering (and it’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 6 months and he still hasn’t made up his mind), I thought that he would take the country by storm with a series of speeches. I thought that his acting career would be the perfect primer for a television president who had his lines scripted by speech writers. I thought that his eloquence would obscure the much better qualified Romney. Lucky me, this isn’t the case.

The fact is that Thompson, for all his acting prowess is not a great speaker. He tends toward the monotone which only emphasizes his lack of energy and enthusiasm. It makes it easy to believe the rumors that he is lazy because his speech is so slow and rolling that he lulls the audience to near sleep. It’s hard to imagine someone speaking so drawn-out being a hard worker (rightly or wrongly). All this is underscored by the mediocrity of his ideas. Reports keep surfacing about disappointed hearers faulting Thompson for advancing nothing of substance. Indeed it becomes more and more apparent that despite the fame that has preceded him, Thompson is not the rock star he has been made out to be.

These were his supposed strong suits coming into the game. And I haven’t even gotten executive experience.

Isn't it funny that the Thompson supporters adopted "FRED!" as their calling card? This man does not sound or act like a preson deserving of an exclamation point.

I call Fred Thompson "Pa Kettle" whose favorite line was "I'm gonna do that ... someday."

Soon-to-be President of the United States Fred Thompson has a defined plan for success. Fred is keeping his powder dry while candidates like Mitt Romney are trying to buy every election in sight. Fred will let Romney burn himself out like a Roman candle while he works his magic slowly and delibertly. Fred is building the haystack one pitchfork at a time. Rome was not built in a day. The Romney campaign is now in complete chaos with the news about Sen. Larry Craig. There is blood in the water, the sharks are circling and the Romney boat keeps throwing fresh chum into the waters. You are now just seeing the beginning of this blood bath. I have some inside information that the Romney insiders are in full panic mode and they should be. This is really going to get ugly. Unfortunately the owner of this blog will not allow me to share more details. I want to warn you to hold on to your hat. There is a freight train coming down the pike and Mitt is walking straight at it with a blindfold on and earplugs in. You heard it here first.

If you support Fred, you do him a great disservice with your ramblings, conspiracy theories, and meaningless claims.


You switched from proclaiming Rudy the GOP nominee to Fred w/in a week. You're constantly making laughable claims that run contrary to all data. Your ignorance is baffling. Now, you claim to have "inside information" that's going to send Mitt's campaign into a tail spin? But you claim Mitt's downfall will be caused by some future burnout at the same time?

Ever read "The Boy Who Cried Wolf?" It might be above your reading level, but you need to start somewhere.
