    Does that represent the box office proceeds from "Hunt for Fred (in) October"?

    This guy thought he was going to get a pass to the GOP ball –

    Sorry Fred, you ain't connecting with the right (pun intended) crackpots this time.

    Now back to your nap............

    I can understand that, this being CNN, there will be a lot of hate against any republican candidate. But it is unbelievable to misrepresent Mr Thompson's character just to support Hillary Clinton. I have yet to see any important measure or law proposed by Sen Clinton that has benefited the American people. What can she offer America except a nasty disposition and the name Clinton to a presidential race? I would be glad not to see a Clinton or Bush in the ballot in November 2008. The time for real change is now and it will not come with old names in new elections.

    Some Republicans see Thompson as Reagan lite; not the real thing but the best we can come up with. He is like Reagan in that he is not smart enough to understand the implications of the policies he supports. Like Reagan, he ducks the tough questions and answers with a platitude. Like Reagan, he has a tough wife who knows her man's weaknesses and is willing to guide him.

    Unlike Reagan, he doesn't have the long history of speaking before live audiences for a decade. There is nothing like platform time to help you polish your act.

    It is not Giuliani and Romney that Thompson is being compared to but Reagan. Thompson is no Reagan and I predict that his polling numbers will go down the more he campaigns.

    It's pretty clear that Fred Thompson is not the "great hope" the GOP was waiting for. Mike Huckabee is sounding more and more like that candidate. The conservative base should start to coalesce around him.

    Oh please make Fred your candidate Republicans. He represents the 'Stone Age' thinking that has got us to the bottom of the barrel of respect to the rest of the world. The more he says the worse it sounds. Fred for prez.
