FRED THOMPSON SCARES LEFT

One of the few things that we can always depend on from the left is that when they fear something or someone they will attack and/or run a disinformation campaign.

Fred Thompson has been surging in the polls and in many State polls he is actually the GOP front runner. Most national polls either have him tied for the lead with Rudi Giuliani or second to him. The latest Rasmussen poll has Thompson in the lead.

This strong showing by Thompson is from a still officially un-announced candidate. Yet he is running as a leading candidate across the board which would indicate that after his announcement the natural surge would place him ahead of everyone including Giuliani. The majority of this momentum has come form conservatives who see Thompson as the answer in the GOP that has been missing in the top tier of candidates.

While Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancredo, Sam Brownback and Mike Huckabee all have strong conservative positions, they do not have the name recognition nor the backing to gain the nomination or beat the Democrat whether it is Clinton or Obama. Fred Thompson has similar conservative positions AND the name recognition to do both.

This combined with the strength in the polls looks to have the left very concerned about Thompson and the misinformation campaign against him has begun. When the left sees a situation like that of Thompson and his strong backing with conservatives the first thing they do is attempt to damage the relationship with the conservative base and especially with that portion of the base who are Christians and also those who are one issue voters.

Abortion is an issue that covers both conservative Christians and the one issue voter. The left has begun their misinformation campaign against Thompson with this issue. The very left leaning Newsweek Magazine is running a story in its June 25th issue that claims that Thompson's record on abortion will disappoint the conservative base.

The article attempts to give the impression that Thompson's voting record in the Senate and some of his previous campaign strategy is more pro-abortion which is an absolute falsehood.

Thompson has stated repeatedly that he is against abortion and that he believes that Roe vs Wade should be over turned because it was a bad decision. His record as a United States Senator on votes concerning abortion is as follows;

June 2000 - voted YES on maintaining ban on Military Base abortions.

March 1999 - voted YES on banning partial birth abortion

February 1998 - voted YES on banning human cloning.


These are the only three votes that came up during his term in time in the Senate concerning abortion and all three votes were in the positive for an anti-abortion stance. The National Right to Life, an anti-abortion group, gave him a 100 percent rating.

Where the left is twisting Thompson's stance on the issue of abortion is in his strong belief that government should not be involved in the abortion issue at all. Then if legislation is needed it should be at the State level and not the Federal level. Thompson is against a Constitutional Amendment on the sanctity of life because of his belief that government should not be involved.

In that same light Thompson has also repeatedly stated that he believes that the Constitution already states the sanctity of life through the fundamental freedoms found in The Bill of Rights.

Additionally Thompson has recently indicated that his stance on abortion has become more anti. In a Fox News interview Thompson stated ,"he's always been against abortion, but that the issue has "meant a little more" since he saw the sonogram of his 3-year-old daughter. "I'll never feel the same way again," Thompson said. "Not only is it in my head, it's in my heart now."

This attempt combined with others that have appeared and I am sure more to come to find issue with Thompson and the conservative base of the Republican Party not only proves his strong viability as a conservative candidate but that the left sees him as a threat who has the ability to win the White House in 2008 and, who knows, even have strong coat tails in bringing conservatives to the Congress and returning the GOP to the conservative platform that elected them in the first place and has been neglected for several years.

Fred Thompson will get his ass handed to him in the general. He is a total fraud.

I like his stand that "States" should bare responsibility for what is going on in thier states instead of shoving EVERYTHING the Federal Government's way.

I was going to mention his abortion stance, but you put it up there already.

I heard the same thing, he may have been less hard on the abortion issue in the past but seeing the ultrasound of his baby he said, changed his mind forever.

I am going to do a Fred Thompson update this afternoon that I think you will like :-)

I like Fred's stands on most things but the best record I can find is Ron Paul.

I obviously don't agree with Republicansagainstfred's comment, Ken. I like Fred and his record proves he's not a fraud! Makes me wonder if this commentor is a real Republican, especially since he/she doesn't appear to have a website.

Fred will get my vote. Great post! :)

Gayle, I have my doubts about the comment and the true identity also. Looks more like a liberal plant.

Marie, Fred stands with the Constitution and limited federal government. He is not a States Rights person but one who believes that the Feds should not be so intrusive!

Greg, Ron Paul may have some conservative ideas, but at the SC Debate I interviewed him and looked the man in the eye. When pushed on some of his statements aout the war and 9/11 he went into liberal talking points and sounded just like he was taking the DNC line!

I am not sure why you think Fred scares "the Left." I am not familiar with ANYONE who actually fears Fred.

Frankly, the field of Republican candidates is weak, which is why a guy who hasn't formally entered the race (although he has said he is running, so I am not sure that is entirely true), is running neck and neck with the "real" candidates. That is pretty sad and it says something about how ambivalent folks on the Right are with their choices.

You all can resolve your issues in the primaries, but in the general election, whoever ends up being the Republican nominee is likely to be dragged down by their continuing support for the Iraq war. They all continue to support the disaster because the 30 percent of the country that makes up the Republican base refuses to face reality.

We're still a long way out and a lot can change, but the Iraq war is only worsening, which makes Republican candidates less appealing in a general election.

Oh come on Rob! You wake up screaming in the middle of the night "HILLARY, HILLARY WHAT HAPPENED" with fears that Fred will win.

Ken: As for your "Repbulicansagainstfred" and "greg" I wish Blogger comments had the IP feature to identify commenters. Something tells me they are one and the same.

And of course Ron Paul is a total joke and certainly NOT a Republican!

Mike, if you want to take issue with any comment I made, I would welcome some substantive adult debate. Of course, I don't expect much from you.

There is no possible way for you to know who I will vote for a year and a half from now.
