Fred Thompson, the actor and former presidential contender, is now performing the way people expected he would when he ran for president last year: relaxed, eloquent, and good pacing.
Definitely not the Fred Thompson that showed up on the campaign trail last fall - His heart seems more into this ode to John McCain than any speech he ever gave running for president.
Kinda sad, isn't it!!
People keep talking about Palin's exectutive experience. She governed the 3rd from last smallest state for 1.5 years while Obama was running a National campaign for the same amount of time. Obama was well received by foreign leaders all over the world while Palin has never met with any other country's leader. Obama was a United States Constitutional professor, does Palin even know the Constitution?
Obama is a Harvard graduate and first black person to be president of the Harvard Law Review (leadership). Palin graduated from a small college with a degree in journalism and worked as a sports reporter. Obama worked as a community organizer right out of college and helped organize much needed help for the less needy. Palin owned a small fishing store in Alaska. On and on and on.
Obama has excellent experience, was President of Harvard Law Review, chose to be a community organizer over going to Wall Street, and was a Constitutional professor before he ever even ran for state senate. God knows this country needs someone who understands the constitution. The experience argument against Obama is getting very old. He has tons of experience, just not in Washington. He definately has more relevant experience than Palin.
Does it have to be so long. ?Everytime I switch back from Fraiser to CNN, he is still talking. Blimey
He still has a boring speech.
I know, he is really fired up. Wonder what would have happened had he performed this way?
What's up with all of the cowboy hats. Are all the big oil guys from Texas at this convention or what? Maybe they have some time of there hands since they had to shut down operations for a couple of days.
Just what we need, more big oil cowboys to run this country again for 4 more years.
Oh common..he wasn't that good. He said nothing essential on the top issues which would fit togehter with the reality in the US..
Are you kidding Candy? I feel like I just spent an evening at the Star Wars Bar.
Hey Candy – he's a good actor – he can memorize Rove's talking points. Am I the only one in the US that sees thru this hoopla? Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh play this country like a fine guitar. Just look at PA, KY, WV, TX
Fred Thompson personifies why we need to invest more in public education. He clearly could benefit from a third grade education...what a disgrace!!!!
This whole convention seems to be spinning straw into lead.
I can't wait to see McCrumplestilskein stomp when he loses in november.
Obama – Biden 08
AND the very old in Florida !!!!
I agree with that comment!
Looks like that teleprompter does wonders for other people other than Barack Obama
He wasn't motivated to be President and it was so obvious – on the other hand we have Obama who can't hide his arrogance and ambition – which is also so obvious. Arrogance and ambition does not a President make. At least McCan has that humility that Obama claimed he has – yeah right.
This is all so misleading.
Ask teachers about No Child Left Behind.
Ask Iraqi citizens how the war is going.
Ask nurses about today's health care.
I only hope, and need to believe, that people will see through this.
Why did he not speak of McCain's first wife, but he did speak of a hooker from Florida?
GO RON PAUL BABY GO!!!!! <3
Fred Thompson didn't really want to be nominated. Soon after he got into the race he was clearly going through the motions without enthusiasm. Rather like Giuliani, who also appeared to think better of the whole idea once he got on the road.
NOw I can hear John King and Anderson Cooper praising every thing the Republicans and their successes.... no the buts we heard from John King during the democrat convention
Shame on you CNN
Let us face it:
When does life really begin? If your answer is AT the Time of Conception, then I will conclude that:
Jusus Christ had no LIFE before he was born as a man. Obama's answer, "I really do not know, is more humbling than what these idiots are preaching
I am literally afraid of what will happen to this country if McCain wins the election.
As far as I could observe the RNC crowd does not even reflect the diversity of AMERICA! Nothing against the elderly, it appeared to be a AARP convention. Thompson said nothing but a bunch of rhetoric... This country can not continue to exclude the core of americans ... Voting for Mcain takes us back....way back... Palin has two many family problems. Five kids....??? I can see why she needs a pay raise.
Fred gave a pretty good speach. but you could telll that it was all a bunch of crap, because he was choking on his own words, becuase he does not even belive it.
Uhhmm, the tribute to Ronald Regan said "he never forgot who he was". I'm afraid that's debatable.
