Fox Turns on Thompson


I was surprised at the negative tone in this FOX news story. At one point, they had been pumping up Thompson. Now that he is snubbing their debate this evening, and has fired the FOX employee that he hired just over a month ago, they have turned on him.

Why is this a disaster for Thompson? Grassroots people who say they "like Fred Thompson" don't really know Fred Thompson. They say that based on the perception they get of him through media like FOX. If you left off his name and asked most of them if they would vote for a CFR member whose voting record is nearly identical to, though slightly left of, John McCain's and who has spent the last 20 years as a Washington lobbyist they would not think much of him. If you said he lobbied for a pro-abortion group in an effort to get more of their tax dollars, and also lobbied for Haitian dictator John Betrand Aristide they would think even less of him. If Thompson is forced to stand only on his record instead of millions of dollars worth of favorable media coverage, then he is in trouble.

FOX will now go back to trying to force Rudy Guiliani down conservatives' throats.

Biggest media creation since Paris Hilton. He's tired, old, sickly and moderate-liberal, not to mention a CFR globalist like Bush. Yet you'd think he was the conservative's savior.

You gotta hand it to the media masters, they're are very good at what they do.

Nearly all of the GOP candidates are CFR. I think Tancredo and Ron Paul are the two exceptions.

Does anyone else know?

Duncan Hunter. He and Paul and Tancredo are three that, even if you don't like one of their policies, at least you know they are thinking of America's interest first. One of them may make a MISTAKE in policy that hurts us, but I am afraid some of the others will make a DELIBERATE EFFORT that will hurt us. And they won't change their policy when it hurts us because the policy was always more important than the country to globalists.

Hunter, Paul, Tancredo.

Patriots only have three choices.

Can you serve on the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs without being on the CFR? Seriously, I understand that is not like in law or something but I would be surprised if the CFR would ever allow that to happen. Both Paul and Tancredo are on that committee.

At the risk of being clobbered by the Huckabee haters, I suggest there is one other candidate who is not a CFR, TC, BB member.

You are very correct. I should add Mike Huckabee to that list. Of course, he has shown that he does not need to be in the CFR to put Mexico's interests above that of his own fellow-citizens. The CFR limits membership to 3000. Maybe MH is just trying to make the cut but is not a big enough fish yet.

Speaking of former Ark. governors, Fred Thompson voted AGAINST conviction of Derr Shlickster.

Come on Mark. You can do better than that.
All I have been hearing from FOX since Giuliani jumped into the race is how he is to liberal and can't win the nomination. I think most pundits are suprised that he is still leading in the polls and has a great shot at winning the nomination.
Fred Thompson? I never understood the love affair some conservatives have with the guy. He just doesn't have what it takes!

Speaking of Huckabee bashing, did you see Ron Paul smack Huck down in the debate last night?

And the "momma always told me" stories. Laughably lame.

'We broke it, we bought it'- sure huck, wonderful reason to keep stuffing body bags with American boys in exchange for the privilege of refereeing a religious civil war.
