It’s funny, as much as I’ve seen so much criticism of the GOP debate last week, one could easily argue that the person who made the biggest mark on the debate was a person who wasn’t even there: Fred Thompson. Which brings me to wonder out aloud . . . what is it about Fred Thompson that has so many liberals literally scared? Could it be that he’s the only possible GOP candidate with real conservative credentials? Could it be the name factor (admit it, you watch “Law & Order” just as much as the next guy, tho’ I personally prefer “L & O: SVU”)? Or could it be that Fred Thompson is the guy most likely to consistently pull the current-day Democrat party card? Check what he spouted on “Hannity & Colmes” the other day: â€œAs far as the Democrats, they are adhering to the extent they can, to the most leftwing element of their base. You know, MoveOn.org and those folks are running the Democratic Party. And theyâ€™re taking extremist positions and doing extremist things. Harry Reid is doing things that I think the American people are going to reject. Theyâ€™re as near to vesting in defeat of their own country as anything Iâ€™ve ever seen. And I donâ€™t think the American people will forgive â€˜em for that. So theyâ€™re going through that exercise. And letâ€™s just let â€˜em go. Letâ€™s just give â€˜em a little rope and see what they do.â€
How can you not love the guy!
