Fred Thompson Watch: FLOP Response
Earlier today it was leaked by the Politico that the Thompson non-campaign for President has raised a pathetically small $3 million plus since beginning campaign operations in June.
Some Thompson supporters are worried that the Presidential campaign will be a FLOP.
The campaign lagged and finally distributed a “rapid” response piece some four plus hours later.
Thompson’s WEAK response demonstrates this non-campaign is NOT ready for prime time.
A FLOP is kind – how about NON-STARTER?
Next, read these responses which are pretty much a rewrite of Thompson’s talking points here and here.
Their analyses are so flawed that Flap hardly knows where to start.
But, I will.
- Thompson hasn’t announced, has hired minimal staff and has NO money ($3 million won’t cut it) to run television ads in major Super Tuesday states.
- Giuliani did not announce until February of this year – so their figures are false.
- McCain has raised more, is a declared candidate and has spent alot – but shot his wad, so to speak.
- Also, this is not December 2006 but August 2007 and January 2008 elections loom.
I may have to make these lunacy analyses a separate post.
NOBODY is buying them.
