Today on Fox News Sunday, former Senator and actor Fred Thompson announced he is considering a run for president. Given the current field of Republican candidates, I believe Thompson would be an instant hit among conservatives. Many of Thompson’s positions are right in line with the base of the conservative movement. will we soon add Mr. Thompson to the Presidential poll? How do you feel about a possible Thompson candidate?

There is a lot of “holier than Thou” talk from the left right now and it really bugs me. Even one of the commenters in the “Ditch Coulter” post was spouting crap like that. Like I wrote in that original post comments like Coulter’s are not exclusive to the conservatives…liberals have way more than their fair share of hateful comments, MUCH MUCH worse than what Coulter said. The difference between liberals and conservatives is the conservatives have overwhelmingly denounced Coulter’s remarks…there has been silence from the left when their own people have made worse comments. Here is a great post from Patterico that details several examples of the hate speech the left is ever so good at.
I think Ann Coulter has finally done it. She has pushed the envelope to a point where conservatives NEED to ditch her. Conservatives have been given the rap of being racist, biggoted, homophobes, which is so unfair. I bet admitted homophobe Tim Hardaway didn’t vote for a conservative…just a guess.
Racism, and homophobia knows no political party…it is on both sides of the aisle <cough> Sen. Sheets Byrd <cough>, but since liberals and their cohorts in the media have been successful in changing the conventional wisdom regarding conservatives it is our job to change it back. Ann Coulter has become a liability to the conservatives.
I used to like Coulter. I have one of her books. She would say things that no one else would dare say, she stood up to her critics, and she destroyed them. Is that what we want from a politician…no, but she is the one that does the dirty work the politicians can’t or won’t do. She has went over the line and the Right can’t legitimicize her any longer. It is guilt by association. I heard Hannity say in his interview with Michelle Malkin, that he hasn’t heard the comments and can only say that each person needs to be responsible for what they say, not what someone else says. That is true, but if you sit back and do nothing to correct or condemn the action it indicates you support the comments, or you are just too much of a wuss to take a stand. Either way it isn’t an appealing characteristic.
Ann Coulter is going the way of Pat Buchannan, and she should be shunned like he was too.
I may be splitting hairs here, but the way Barak Obama delivered this statement speaks to the type of president he would be if elected.
For telethons and other charity events people often say, “If everyone could give just $1, or $5 it would help…”, but Obama is acting like a parent talking to his children. Like he knows he will spend your money, better than you will spend your money. Like he knows where money is best spent, but you don’t. Typical liberal!!
If I had any intention of voting for that guy, I would have walked right out when he said that. Obviously, he doesn’t understand that yes indeed, you can be poor enough where you can’t afford to give up five dollars. I’ve been in that situation. And quite honestly, if I was that poor, but still willing to give up my last five dollars, I’d put it in the collection plate at church rather than give it to a political campaign.
His arrogance, and controlling nature really shined through here…and it only took seven seconds for him to do it.
