If Fred Thompson ran again…

I’d support him.

I was a big supporter the first time. Don’t know what happened.

has Fred come out of his coma yet?

I just saw him in Die Hard 2 on cable last week. He showed the kind of good leadership we need in DC in that movie.

Did you read the link, Larry? His whole “coma” thing was a media fabrication.

Awesome piece, BTW. It reminded me of why I like him.

media fabrication?…everytime I hear that guy speak, he puts me to sleep.

“Awesome piece, BTW. It reminded me of why I like him.”

EXACTLY. I smiled all the way through.

I would support him as well, if he were to run.

I will say though, that media fabrication or not, a successful presidential candidate needs to have better control of the message that is being used to describe him.

It’s not very useful to counter the false message 3 years after it happened. Even many conservatives believed the false message. Thompson has no one to blame for that other than himself.

Anyway – he was my top choice for the nomination last year, and was frustrated that he didn’t get traction. I’d support him again this year if he chose to ran.

I think the red truck guy is a little long in the tooth.

I’d rather see someone like Paul Rayan – strong, focused and methodical, and no negative baggage behind him – but if there will be a choice between Fred and Huckster, have no doubt – I’m for Fred.
