Fred Thompson You Have Been Drafted To Be The Next President Of The United States Of America

Fred Thompson Gears Up

Fred Thompson, the “Law & Order” actor and former senator from Tennessee, has moved beyond pondering a bid for the White House and begun assembling the nucleus of a campaign should he decide to run, according to people involved in the effort.

Thompson has not yet decided to seek the Republican presidential nomination. But “he is getting more serious every day,” said an adviser familiar with Thompson's plans.

Thompson’s coming-out as a candidate-in-waiting will be a May 4 appearance at the 45th annual dinner of the Lincoln Club of Orange County in the heart of Ronald Reagan country in Southern California. The invitation was widely sought by aspiring Republicans, and his advisers expect considerable media attention around the visit. But there are no plans now for an announcement then.

Thompson will also stoke speculation with a meeting of House Republicans April 18 at the Capitol Hill Club, organized by Rep Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), the most vocal promoter of a Thompson candidacy. More than 60 House Republicans have indicated they want to come to hear the former senator, according to organizers.

Though Thompson has shown well in some polls since he said he was actively considering a presidential bid, the hurdles to such a late start are many. And some people who worked with him in the Senate question his willingness to do the brutal work of a national campaign. But friends and advisers say Thompson has been buoyed by the response so far at a time when many Republicans are openly expressing disappointment with their presidential field.

“The outreach to him has been so overwhelming that he is now starting to talk to people to really calibrate what it would take to run a successful campaign,’’ the adviser said. “He’s talking to some of the top unaligned strategists and fundraisers. He’s said: ‘I’m seriously considering it, and I’m happy to hear your thoughts and ideas.’”

“As soon as you announce, they start throwing spitballs, so why not wait?” said a Thompson friend involved in the discussions.

The Sleuth column at reported a recent lunch Thompson had with Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Ed Gillespie, and Thompson recently lunched at a Washington hotel with former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.).

Thompson also has met with other big Republican players, including some who work for other presidential campaigns, sources said.

Thompson got 12 percent among Republicans in a recent USA Today-Gallup Poll, exceeded only by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Thompson has also done well in recent polls in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida and California.

The former senator, who did not seek reelection in 2002, lives in McLean, Va., and just finished a three-week stint filling in as host of Paul Harvey’s radio programs. He was in New York on Thursday for NBC’s “Law and Order,” which wraps up taping for the season later this month.

Thompson’s backers say they recognize that a key hurdle to attracting establishment support will be questions about the fire in his belly. “This accelerated action is his answer to those questions,” said a person who has talked with Thompson about the candidacy.

If Thompson runs, he’s likely to stress his willingness to take on the biggest issues, including nuclear proliferation and the entitlement crisis, advisers said. “People are disappointed that for the last two presidencies – almost 20 years now – we’ve seen people not held accountable and a cavalier attitude toward basic governmental responsibilities,” said the person who has talked to Thompson.

Fred would be a great candidate. Naturally, the libtards are already trying to poo-poo him as 'just an actor'.
They said the same thing about Reagan.
'They' are consistently wrong.

He's far from my first choice, but I'd vote for him. Only because I'd vote for any Republican who runs.
My first choice would be Rudy.

I really like him, he is the most Reaganesque candidate I have seen in a long long time, well, since Reagan!! And he has a wonderful history in Politics BEFORE he was ever an actor.

Of course the Libtards are pooing on him because they know he has the best chance of winning!

They are Scared of Thompson :-)

I understand, if we have to vote for anyone that's Republican I suppose it could be Rudy. I LOVE Rudy and all but he carries to much baggage and you watch and see if Hillary and Obama dont go after the NYFD Not backing Guliani, pictures of him in drag, the Christians and the abortion thing, and all kinds of stuff, they will shred poor Rudy I see it coming.

And I dont see MCcain winning because now he has a spot on his forehead and that will scare the voters away, not to mention MCcain is way to close to Kennedy to suit me (I Loathe Ted Kennedy)

Romney is a Mormon so there goes the Christian vote.

Basically I dont see any of the Republicans running, winning!

Thompson is NO-NONSENSE, Pro-Defense, all the things Reagan was. The only problem I see anyone having is with his age. But then again MCcain is almost 70 isnt he? Or in his '70's?

I just dont see these other guys winning. And I like Thompson's No-Nonsense style.

I think he deserves a whack at it.

I like Senator Thompson too but he'd better get off the pot soon if he wants to start raising enough money for the primaries. Things are very different today with all the states moving their primaries up and the McCain Feingold bull interfering with free speech. Sheesh that's still a bee in my bonnet !!!

I'm not supporting ANY candidate at this early stage.

But I would like to see Fred AND Newt in the race.

The wider the exchange of ideas the better.

No foolin, Thompson better hurry up and get off the pot, he will need alot of money to go up against Hillary UGH!!


Well the way things are moving so fast it seems we need a candidate an fast, and I dont like all the others. I mean I like them, but they dont seem Presidential, or they carry to much baggage. I think Fred is the closest to a Reaganesque figure we have had in a long time. Gingrich would be good too, I was kind of hoping it would be a Fred Thompsom/Michael Steele ticket. I really like Michael Steele.
I'm not sure this is early anymore, wasnt this the bright idea of the Democrats to move all this up? HAPPY EASTER to you too Mike :-)


Better than anyone I've seen so far lol. He look's Presidential and he's a no-nonsense guy. He seems like he may be able to tackle the Hillary War Machine :-)
