McLean, VA - Senator Fred Thompson today issued the following statement about his campaign for President:
"Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people."
Who gives a shiite what you think, as if you could think on your own.
Prayers up for your husband.
now it becomes a meaningful protest vote ...
they should really stop all of this early voting.
everyone should vote the same day .. a snapshot of the collective mood ... not the slow drip drip of the nanny state's concept of convenience
Sounds like you do.
What do you mean he isn't perfect. There isn't an issue that he disagrees with you on.
I was a Hunter, then Thompson guy; but it looks like I will be voting for Mitt...again.
I like the NEW Romney better than when I voted for him as Governor. - Tom
With the socialists in control of Congress and a MYTH or McInsane in the WH there is no doubt that any judge confirmed will be another Breyer at best.
The day is lost, Romney and McCain laugh at conservatives.
Jim, Jim Robinson, is that you?
Ha. No, I'm not Jim. But my point remains. What forum out there even comes close to FR when it comes to the quality and quantity of posters, navigation/ping system, speed, etc.?
Well, my GOP friends in Mass like Rootie, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side of the border.
People who complain about Romney do so because of his past positions (and that he kept his campaign promises). The gripe would be legit if Romney had a history of saying one thing and doing another.
But he doesn’t.
I assure you, there is no “happy” in whatever my mood is. It is with the greatest sadness that I will cast my vote for the Democrat this election. My party has abandoned this country.
- Lowered federal income tax rate.
- Appointed two Conservative Supreme Court Justices.
- Upheld a ban on a form of partial birth abortion.
- Overthrew two brutal regimes.
YOU ARE A DRAMA QUEEN! Take your ball and go home. And don't worry... real Conservatives will stick it out and make sure a Democrat does not become Commander-in-Chief of this great nation. If that is the least that we can do... by God we'll do it!
Thank you! I am not happy with the choices either but I'll be damned if I will allow a Democrat to become Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces during this period in our history.
The “go home” people are retards. Definite mental defect.
Thanks for all the good work. It’s sad it didn’t turn out. I’m casting my vote for Mitt. That’s not a decision for a candidate, but one against all the others.
Take care, and good luck...
My sympathies regarding your husband, but there is still alot of good in this world...your husband, FT, this site, and America. A positive attitude is important to help your husband and our country. Best wishes.
Oh, here we go with the treason hysterics. Unless you think that people should be administered capital punishment for sitting out an election, it ain't treason.
It's part of the fascination with Coulteresque ranting.
If people use the term "treason" for absolutely everything, the word will lose its meaning and they'll never be taken seriously.
