Thompson to Say: Social Security and Medicare More Important than Global Warming

Former Senator Fred Thompson will make his premiere big screen political appearance at the Lincoln Club of Orange Country, California, where an enthusiastic audience will hear his thoughts on the issues facing the county. There is an excellent chance that he will expound on his belief that there are more important issues facing the American people than global warming, including Social Security and Medicare.

Thompson, still not a declared candidate, routinely places among the top two or three Republican candidates in polls and straw polls and seems to rate more spontaneous web postings than any of the declared Republican candidates.

Fred Thompson has received more attention this quarter, with no staff and no overt campaign effort, than most of the conventional candidates.

He will start his campaign with a far higher face recognition factor than all the others combined.

Perhaps he'll even mention his deep appreciation to our "allies" who seem to have way too much time on their hands:

It bothers Americans when we’re told how unpopular we are with the rest of the world. For some of us, at least, it gets our back up — and our natural tendency is to tell the French, for example, that we’d rather not hear from them until the day when they need us to bail them out again.

The audience in Orange County and we at home can expect to hear much more of Fred's forthright thinking as time goes on. Today, he spends his days much as Reagan did, commenting for others. The day will come, as it did for Reagan, when it's time to do it for himself.

One thing for certain: There'll be an audience.

What a error in judgement to say he will end social security and medicare with millions of baby boomer voters and seniors who vote does he really think that will get him votes?

Mr Thompson you blew it with choosing to end social security and medicare as your platform.
