Senator Fred Thompson Rocks the RNC
Slamming the "Democratic press", ex actor and presidential candidate Fred Thompson chastised the "liberal media" as a bunch of alarmist pansies who don't like the "red meat" vice presidential pick Sarah Palin represents.
The Weekly Standard reports that Fred Thompson will lay it all out tonight in a speech Republicans are characterizing as "red meat."
Panic is what Thompson labels the reaction to the Palin teenage baby drama from the "Democrat-friendly mainstream media."
"What a breath of fresh air Governor Sarah Palin is. She is from a small town, with small town values, but that's not good enough for those folks who are attacking her and her family. Let's be clear, the selection of Governor Palin has the other side and their friends in the media in a state of panic. She is a courageous, successful, reformer, who is not afraid to take on the establishment."
The Weekly Standard notes that Barack Obama's stand on abortion will be picked apart in his speech as well.
Thompson is quoted saying: "We need a President, and Vice President, who will take the federal bureaucracy by the scruff of the neck and give it a good shaking. And we need a President who doesn't think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade."
No word yet on whether Thompson will address the pressing issues of American life, such as the health care crisis, education crisis, energy crisis, and erosion of the middle class which is rendering the United States into a land of the haves and have nots.
(Tell it like it is Fred! You rocked the house tonight! Amen brother, never be afraid to speak the truth! VN8)
