And The Winner Of Tonight's Debate????????




HANDS DOWN!!!




I got this in the mail this morning.

Yesterday, Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani continued their partisan bickering, this time over things like the constitutionality of the line item veto. While they played politics, Fred Thompson rose above it and took his conservative, small government, tax cutting message straight to the American people.

He talked directly to the American people about keeping more of what they earn. He talked truth about entitlements. He talked about keeping America safe. He made it known that when it comes to our national security, it won’t be his attorneys that Fred Thompson will first sit down with, it will be his generals.

Overall, he showed the courage and honesty to address the nation’s real problems, and the leadership to solve them. Fred Thompson may have been standing between Romney and Rudy, but he stood far above both of them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fred was great for his first debate. I think Fred is going to do fabulous. My faith lies in Fred :-)

Are you serious? Giuliani mopped the floor with him. Plus, Giuliani is a real leader and conservative.

Hi Marie,

As much as I hate to disagree with you my friend because I also was of hope for Thompson but all the AM Talk show hosts have been saying that Giuliani has been really out their and hitting home the points on National Security and I had a discussion about this same thing with Doug over at Political Pistachio saying to Doug that any and all the other issues have to take second place because if Ala is standing over us cutting our heads off while chanting Ala Akbar then none of the other issues is going to matter.

Hi Marie, I didn't get a chance to see the debates for myself. I haven't heard that much on who was considered the winner. I keep on hearing that Rudy and romney went at it about taxes and spending. I haven't heard anything other than Fred was there and he made no mistakes. There will be more debates and there will be plenty more to say about this one I'm sure. One thing is certain though, we must get our ducks in a row soon because Clinton is running away with it over there. Rudy, Fred, Mitt, I like all three of them and will back any of them right now and I still like Mike Huckabee too. Soon folks, we gotta decide soon!!!

Well I think for Fred Thompson's first debate he did great.

He seemed a little nervous at first, then he mellowed out.

Everybody did well I think, Guliani, Romney, McCain, even Brownback and the rest did as well.

I LOVE all our candidates with the exception of Ron Paul!

But me, being a FredHead I gotta go with my guy!

We didnt Draft Fred and throw him out there to run for President and possibly ruin his life for nothin' lol

GO FRED GO!!!!!

Giuliani and Romney had a really good exchange over Hillary’s spending promises, and the tax situation. .Romney brought up Hillary’s health care proposal and Giuliani attacked Hillary’s idea of giving $5,000 baby bonds. Thats the way it's done . We have to slam away are Hillary, and not let up for a minute.
I think Thompson survived but just barely. If he is going to survive and get the nomination he has to be much more charismatic , he has to show warmth, smile more, and he has to be more aggressive

DD,

They did get in some good swipes at Hillary lol

It was Thompson's first debate, he will get better as the debates continue.

Hillary may be running away with it on the Democrat side, but look at thier choices lol

All our candidates are GREAT!

(Except Ron Paul)

So it's hard to choose.

Fred believes everything I do that's why I love him.

But then again they all do.

Maybe people are having a hard time choosing?

Thompson did alright, I would give him a B, and I am a Fred supporter.

Always remember two things:

1. These early debates have viewers like we who blog and are politcal fanatics. The average Joe still barley knows that next year even IS an election year. The last debate here in SC, (for which I already have press credentials) will be the most watched and most important.

2. Remember that in the first debate with Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, "the Great Communicator, " lost and was very much off message. In the second debate which was the most watched and most imprtant HE MOPPED THE FLOOR with Carter.

So Fred didn't hurt and if anything helped himself yesterday

Well I thought Fred did Wonderful!

He needs a few more debates and he will be less nervous.

He sure looked Presidential to me :-)

Marie, don't get me wrong, I think he did well and was strong in many respects during the debate.

If there was one thing that hurt him though was the hype and anticipation that was in place before the debate. There was an aniticipation that Fred would blow the rest away and just shine like a Nova.

He remained true to his message and was consistant with everything he said. No matter what he did short of tearing Hillary a new butt or giving Paul the finger, (so to speak), the hype that was in place left people looking for more.

That's why I gave the Reagan example in my earlier comment in association with Fred. Now that people have seen him, many for the first time, they know what to expect and instead of looking for a big blast that will leave everyone in its wake, they will listen to WHAT he has to say next time instead of how he says it.

Also he has had the opportunity to allow many who have not seen him before a chance to hear what he has to say and that to I think will work to his advantage.

Additionally, the next time I beleive that Fred will be shooting from the hip with the big guns. this debate had low viewing and he knew it so he was more or less getting a feel of the debate atmosphere and a feel for the other candidates.

Watch out next time! You'll see what I am talking about!

Ken,

I see your point, the expectations were set to high.

He was still great though lol

I'd like to see Fred fire it up a notch too. I also gave him a B and just finished a post grading all the candidates and including large excerpts of their remarks as I am sure that few people saw the debate on MSNBC.

Rudy did fine, so did Huckabee and even Brownback had some good moments.

I'm down on Trandcredo because he won't promise to support the eventual nominee which was an important question asked of most candidates (Fred didnt' get to answer) in the wake of this Dr. Dobson third party crap!

Blogger Marie's Two Cents said...

Mike,

I agree Fred does need to fire up his base FAST!

That was his first debate and I think he did quite well, but you and Ken are right I guess he get's a B.

As for backing the candidate whoever he is I am all for it.

I would like to see Fred, but if it comes down to a candidate that we KNOW is going to win. I will support him. I think they are all great (Except Ron Paul) Geez I cant stand that man.

Up until right after Fred announced I was thinking that he might be my guy... HOWEVER, after reviewing all of the candidates positions on the issues... there is only one true conservative in the bunch and I challenge every conservative to compare their favorite candidate to... Duncan "the real deal" Hunter.

go to ontheissues.org and compare for yourself.
No matter what... I will be voting for which ever Republican gets the nod... but if we vote on principals, there is no contest.
Hunter wins.
