Sexier On The SidelinesMay 31, 2007 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
Reason 4,123 that I adore John H.
Actually, I like Fred T*. I do believe he’s sincere, but the truth is, he’s a lot sexier when he’s on the sidelines, pronouncing, observing, nodding sagely in the direction of the noise. Now that he appears to be actually within a few feet of RUNNING, some of the fervor, some of the facade will begin to show cracks. His wisdom will move from the general to the specific and people will actually find things to disagree with…
Read the whole piece. However, I do think that right now that Fred Thompson may be the guy that could win this for the Republicans. The thing is, I’m still fuzzy on where he stands on issues as I think John writes about quite eloquently here.
Democrats and Republicans are in a fervor over Thompson. I think it’s because he may have that Reaganesque manner about him from 27 years ago. People love movie stars. For Dems, he’s dangerous. For the GOP, he could helped create a legacy that will get the bad taste of Bush out of folks’ mouths as Bush’s numbers continue to plummet.
And the thing is, not everyone votes on the issues but on who has the most swagger.
And Thompson has swagger.
Just opining on this Thursday morning.
We still have a year and a half to go, but this could be game-changing. Maybe, maybe not.
We will have to wait and see.
