Glenn Beck today was talking about Thompson's refusal to come on his radio program. He offered Fred an hour or half-hour of friendly questioning from a fellow conservative. Fred's lack of use of friendly media is concerning.

Didn't know that, Bob, thanks for pointing it out. I agree that it's a concern.

From the Weekly Standard - the GOP debate:

“So, a good night for for the lowest denominator, a bad night for the GOP. America got to see a vaguely threatening parade of gun fetishists, flat worlders, Mars Explorers, Confederate flag lovers and zombie-eyed-Bible-wavers as well as various one issue activists hammering their pet cause.

My cheers went to a listless Fred Thompson who easily qualified himself to be president in my book by looking all night like he would cheerfully trade his left arm for an early exit off the stage to a waiting Scotch and good Cuban cigar. The media will probably award a win to Mike Huckabee, the easy listening music candidate at home in any crowd, fluent in simpleton speak and the one man on the stage tonight who led the audience to roaring cheers by boasting that he had a special qualification to be president that none of the second-raters on the stage could match: A degree in Bible Studies from Ouachita Baptist University of Arkadelphia, Arkansas.”

The Weekly Standard is telling it like it is....great quote, Ellen. Fred is not overly energized and Mike Huckabee doesn't do it for me on several fronts, including tax policy and immigration.

Today Rush Limbaugh said there was only one conservative on the stage among the front-runners: Fred Thompson.

After watching Fred in the YouTube debate, I was struck again that he is one candidate that actually answers the questions he is asked.

I like Fred. Have to decide between him and Huckabee for the primary.
