Fred Thompson as an example of media controlling perception

"Rivals try to deflate F. Thompson campaign"

Why should this be so important?

Rivals have tried to "deflate" their political opponents since the dawn of time. And there's been plenty of corporate-driven attempts lately to "deflate" candidates like Ron Paul. Especially like Ron Paul. Don't they warrant the same level of concern?

A lot of people in the parties and the media would really like it if "their choice" Fred Thompson is, in the minds of the American people, made out to be an "unfair target" of other candidates. Didn't we see enough of that when Bill Clinton was running for President?

Fred refuses to officially announce so he doesnt have to debate his opponents or particpate in the process he is quick to criticise.

Fred refuses to field questions from reporters or even his own supporters.

Karl Rove, who is the mastermind behind the amnesty bill is the one pulling strings and stiff arming people into showing support for Fred. Fred will ultimately support the bill no matter what lie he is speaking right now.

Matlin/Carville is sending Thompson to Israel and London later this month to make it appear Fred has foreign affairs experience, when in reality, he doesn’t.

Fred was for abortion before he was against it.

Fred was for Mcain/Feingold before he was against it.

Fred is a globalist.

Fred is a lobbyist.

Fred is a dirty ol man with a fetish for young girls.

This is just begining and this is all really know about the guy. I predect that more we know about Fred, the less people will support him. It is however, interesting to see SoCons twist themselves into a pretzel trying to sell this guy as the SoCon candidate when he is anything but that.

You genuinely stunned me when I saw your name, Jim. So much so that I had to do some checking...

...but I'm glad it was just the shock of seeing your name, and nothing more.

The *other* Jim Robinson, that I know about, is only too happy to support Fred Thompson for President. The *other* Jim Robinson that I know of - the evil one - would NEVER insult Karl Rove, ever.

I'm glad that you are one of the good guys :-)
