Thompson Takes His Shot

The former Tennessee senator was challenging potential caucus-goers to choose the best man to help fend off what he described as an assault by a Democratic Party that is "just salivating" to lead the country into a welfare state.

"Who are we going to set on the road what man are we going to set on the road to lead us and to stand against this assault?" he asked, emphasizing the word 'man.' He couched his comments by saying "I say the word man advisedly. Now I've got a daughter that's going to be president some day, I know it, and I am all for a woman president, just not this year, not next year."

Without saying Clinton's name, he added: "There is no woman on the horizon that ought to be president next year, let's all agree on that."

Is Romney losing it? Is Huckabee unelectable? Is Thompson poised to take command?

The Newsweek article says he would implement a flat income tax, save Social Security from bankruptcy, rebuild the military and stop illegal immigration.

Hmmm. Flat income tax. I didn't know the majority of Americans wanted this?

Save SS from bankruptcy. This will happen during the next presidential term? I'm glad people are talking about this issue, but this is one of the big four issues of the upcoming election?

Rebuild the miltary? It's breaking down? What % of GDP are we spending now?

Stop illegal immigration. Ok, I'll give him that.

But it sounds like another old, white male out of touch with the majority of the US population.

Full disclosure: I will not be voting for Hilary next year.

Hey, at least Thompson's fleshing some things out. Finally.
