    This guy will not show up at his inauguration if elected. He is the laziest man ever.

    He also looks lazy.

    I wish you'd give us a text-only version of all these video clips. Not everyone has a high speed connection or is willing to wait 15-20 minutes for a clip to load.

    Who cares where he is. Let him stay missing. He has nothing to say that most American people want to hear. People are tired of Republicans and they are ready for a clean sweep of the dirt in the white house.

    Let's face it. Conservatives leaders/activists do not see the Thompson candidacy going anywhere if they have chosenR Romney as their conservative alternative to Rudy.

    I know it's petty- but gee, you'd think a guy running for President could afford a suit that actually fits.

    Maybe you all will wake up and see that he supports what most americans want. These Hilliary supporters, a Barrack Osama supporter have no clue where the money will come from to support such crap as paying $5000 for every baby produced.

    How does this guy have supporters?
    He hasn't said anything.

    It's hilarious to me that some seem to offer support for a candidate with no platforms, whose speeches are brief and fail to address anything and who fails to show up at most functions where every other Repub candidate is present.

    His initial delay in entering is quickly starting to reveal itself as more about not wanting to get to work on his campaign than it is his Law and Order syndication checks.

    I didn't know Boss Hogg from Dukes of Hazzard was running for President.

    Seriously, Fred Thompson probably overslept or something. He was up too late watching himself on Law and Order, trying to figure out how to look Presidential.

    Please, I am so tired to having half or more of the items being available only by video clips. I want to read it. I want it in cold hard print so that I can actually take my time and absorb/understand the situation.

    Stop the video only nonsense.

    Keep on acting Mr. Thompson because you do NOT belong in this presidential election.
