This guy is – and always was – a total non-event
We haven't even had a primary yet. This blurb is ridiculous. How about have a primary and if he does very poorly, THEN claim he is fading.
Fred Thompson should just go back to the farm. Nice man, but out of his league,. He thinks he can be another Reagan
You do not have it. Do the US a favor, and bow out with honor.
LOL! Why are we STILL talking about this poor excuse for a presidential candidate?
Charles from Utah:
Fred Thompson is informed, and savvy??? You are joking right? Did you happen to watch him in the debate? The man recently referred to Russia as the U.S.S.R. for crying out loud!
I'll bet more then his star is fading!
