I've been reading alot lately about Fred Thompson and many articles are comparing him to Ronald Reagan. I know he's an actor on Law and Order but that's not what the Reagan comparisons are about. They seem to be hinting that he's the perfect centrist candidate...an "everyman" if you will. I've seen him campaigning and it's striking me that these comparisons may be valid. Don't get me wrong I was never a fan of Ronald Reagan or his policies but I'm just a little concerned that this guy could be the ONLY person that could beat Hillary, Obama or Edwards in 2008. What do you think???
He's very unimpressive. He doesn't seem especially intelligent and supports all the usual right wing policies of only seeing what Iran has done wrong (and not what the US has done by overthrowing its government, supporting an 8 year war and selling biological weapons to be used against it, and then terrifying the people with an invasion so they elect that idiot Ahmadinejad), unlike a somewhat enlightened Ron Paul or Democrat Mike Gravel.
He's also disgustingly pro-Israeli. Like most Republicans, it's not about principles dictating policy but about identifying who we like and don't and then coming up with "principled" excuses to allow others to kill (Israel) and use blanket terms like "terrorist" to disqualify the rightful resistance in Palestine.

He's also very pro-Iraq war, despite being unable to think of good reasons why or admit how the US supported Saddam Hussein for years.

He's an idiotic hawk. More like George W. Bush. Arnold Schwarzenegger now seems more impressive than this lazy yahoo.

Hypocrites to the end!!
Amen!

[q]"Isn't Thompson the candidate who is opposed to a Constitutional amendment to protect marriage, believes there should be 50 different definitions of marriage in the U.S., favors McCain-Feingold, won't talk at all about what he believes, and can't speak his way out of a paper bag on the campaign trail?" Dobson wrote.

"He has no passion, no zeal, and no apparent 'want to.' And yet he is apparently the Great Hope that burns in the breasts of many conservative Christians? Well, not for me, my brothers. Not for me![/q]

I was hoping I wouldn't have to go more than a few posts without a good joke like this. Well done!

Ai adai.

I was hoping the era of the religo-politcal zealots had passed. Perhaps not.

Personally, I fear a Romney presidency more than a Thompson presidency.

Go and read the latest Rolling Stone artcile on this guy - it sums up everything quite well. It's the issue with Hunter S. Thompson on the cover.

Thompson's not going to be elected. The voters won't like it that he can't remember anything.

The guy's a bafoon.

It's a moot point anyway, imo.

2008 is the democrats' year. This is OUR year. So far, none of the Republican candidates, not even Guliani or McCain, have jumped out as big-time favorites for the general election. The nation is sick of the conservative White House. The entire Bush presidency has served as a giant 8-year-long setup for what should be a slam dunk election for the dems. We have three candidates - Hilary, Obama, and Edwards - who are capable of winning the general election over any of the current republican candidates. Especially Hilary, given how much money her campaign has and given that she has her husband as her biggest campaigner.

The point is, this is the dems' election to lose, even significantly more so than the 04 election was. This time we have candidates far more interesting than John Kerry. If we can't win it under these circumstances, we never will.

Well wouldn't someone with a brain realize that has nothing to do with Fred Thompson, or if he's the next Reagan.
