Republican Presidential hopeful, former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, gestures while speaking in Manchester, Iowa, Tuesday, Dec. 18,2007.

Fred makes the call over at the Brody file. At least Fred did not use the L word like Mitt.

Such name calling…….

Luke Ford has ALL of the poop and I do mean all:

Mickey Kaus has been pushing this story since day one.

Mickey writes Oct. 18:

What to expect when you’re expecting: Drudge teases the National Enquirer … Update: The Enquirer posts the gist….. One initial point: There’s no reason to conclude this story was planted by one campaign or another. I’m familiar with how the initial Rielle Hunter/Edwards rumors, true or not, got to at least one news outlet–and no campaigns, Dem or GOP, were involved. It was a story going around–I’d been hearing it for months. Not all rumors are plants. And some are true. Even in the Enquirer. …P.S.: Here’s an earlier analysis of the potential effect of this scandal on Edwards–and Hillary. It doesn’t seem all that complicated. Until recently, Edwards not very subtly put his wife’s illness. and his loyalty to her, near the center of his campaign. As he said:

In so many ways, you’re the guardians of what kind of human being, we’re going to have as president. … And you get to judge us.

Backfill: Here’s Jerome Armstrong’s initial Rielle Hunter denial.


And, here is the photo of the woman: Rielle Hunter

Will Larry Flynt take credit for this?

Probably not……..

Oh, yeah and Obama benefits, fancy that.

Mitt Romney discussing illegal immigration on last night’s Bill O’Reilly Show

Mitt Romney calls for a new employment verification system and one already exists.

Mitt Romney suggested there was no way a landscaping company that worked for him could have known its employees were illegal aliens even though the federal government has an employer verification system that any employer in America, on a voluntary basis, can use for free.

And while the system already exists and is in use, Romney called for creating one during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. A Romney spokesman said the governor meant to say he wanted to make the system mandatory for all businesses.

Mitt cannot keep government programs straight and doesn’t know whether illegal aliens are tending to his Massachusetts mansion’s lawn.

And, someone wants this guy as President?


Add this one to the list of Flip-Flops, Lies and Oddities:



Mitt Romney will say and do anything to be elected President. Flap will NEVER vote for Romney and would lead the GOP into a 40 plus state loss in November 2008.

Rudy Giuliani on the Sean Hannity Show yesterday

Since the Florida Rasmussen Poll of this past weekend, pundits have been declaring Rudy Giuliani to be “on the brink” of failing in his bid for the Presidency. They blame his “BIG STATE” strategy and that by emphasing states with a more diverse population, more people and more GOP delegates that he will fail.

This is hard to believe on its face – especially with national poll numbers, an 11 point lead, like these.

Granted, the Huckaboom and the sudden surge of Mike Huckabee’s popularity in the polls has led credence to this opinion.

But, there are signs of the Huckaboom losing steam and that if there is any certain result of his surge is that he muddles the race in the early states where Giuliani has had little if any chance to win.

Iowa and South Carolina are states with large numbers of Evangelical Christian voters which trend toward a southern candidate like Mike Huckabee or Fred Thompson. Michigan, Nevada and New Hampshire are home fields for Mitt Romney. All of these states have relatively few GOP delegates at stake.

Realistically, the first states that are competitive for the GOP field are Florida and the February 5 Super Duper Tuesday contests, that include California and Illinois.

So, onto the polls:

Strategic Vision GOP Florida Primary

  • Rudy 25% (31%, 11-9 thru 11-11)
  • Mike Huckabee 21% (9%)
  • John McCain 15% (13%)
  • Mitt Romney 13% (12%)
  • Fred Thompson 10% (13%)
  • Ron Paul 4% (4%)
  • Tom Tancredo 2% (2%)
  • Duncan Hunter 1% (1%)
  • Undecided 9% (14%)

Survey of 468 likely Republican primary voters was conducted December 14-16. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.

Survey USA GOP Florida Primary

  • Rudy 29% (32%, 12-2 thru 12-3)
  • Mike Huckabee 24% (18%)
  • Mitt Romney 20% (15%)
  • John McCain 10% (11%)
  • Fred Thompson 8% (14%)
  • Other 6% (5%)
  • Undecided 3% (6%)

Survey of 431 likely Republican primary voters was conducted December 15-16. The margin of error is +/- 4.8 percentage points.
SurveyUSA GOP California Primary

  • Rudy 28% (32%, 11-30 thru Dec 2)
  • Mike Huckabee 20% (14%)
  • Mitt Romney 16% (14%)
  • John McCain 14% (18%)
  • Fred Thompson 13% (13%)
  • Other 7% (6%)
  • Undecided 3% (3%)

Yes, the races have tightened and Giuliani’s lead has decreased. But, he is NOT in third place in Florida like the Rasmussen Poll indicated. Obviously, this poll was an OUTLIER.

Rudy is not on the brink of collapse with a double digit national GOP lead and solid leads in these two GOP delegate laden states.

The rumors of Giuliani’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. But, isn’t this the picture the rival campaigns and the Democrats hoped to paint?

Stay tuned…….
