Suggested Fred Goodbye Remarks

Our own Ben Domenech has, through secret back channels and insiders known only to him, obtained a copy of the speech Fred Thompson intends to give tomorrow from the front porch of the family home in Tennessee.

Hey there folks. I'm Fred Thompson. I'd say I'm glad to be here, but I'm not, so f*** that.

I want to thank all of you who gave, volunteered, and worked for my campaign. You all know from those whiny b**ches in the media that you worked harder than I did for the most part, so thanks, even if you didn't work hard enough to get me a win. It's much appreciated. After I speak today, you can pick up some cake shaped like an American flag as a reward. You don't like cake, well, go back to France.

I have a few things to say about my fellow presidential candidates before I go back home to shag my hot wife and make kicka** coin talking to you all on the radio and doing ads for Viagra, which I don't need by the way, as if that fact was not obvious.

My fellow candidates are all men. Not good men, I say, cause most of them aren't. In fact, most of them just can't handle it if you asked them to get into a fight. They whine and complain about personal attacks, they flip and they flop like retarded carp, or they check to see if they broke a nail. I have never seen such a bunch of pansies strutting about pretending to be leaders.

Rudy Giuliani? Slick cheater. Mike Huckabee? Jesus freak. John McCain? Crazy. Mitt Romney? Woman.

All of these are reasons they should be forced to give this d**n speech today, not me.

This field of candidates isn't just unconservative, people. They're anti-conservative. They're anti-honesty, they're anti-honor, they're anti-courage. And I wouldn't trust them to watch my dog, let alone my country. They are the all singing all dancing crap of the world, as a fella once said. And they can kiss the fattest part of my a**.

That's why I ran. But it was clear to me from the get-go that America just wasn't ready for the awesome manliness of Fred Thompson. I'm just too much for you to handle. You want a candidate who will cater to your every whim, who will cuddle you in a blankie, coo over you in your crib. You want that cause you're all a bunch of selfish babies. No wonder you all went government to put a bandaid on your little skinned knees. Well, you're gonna get what you've got coming to ya all right, and I ain't gonna change ya when it all turns to a big ole' mess of baby crap. Who do you think I am, people? I'm Fred freaking Thompson.

A lot of you have been talking about who I'm going to endorse. Well, guess what: no endorsement from me. I still think those idiots are all a bunch of sorry-a** d****ebags. There's more principle in my left nut then they have in their entire bodies.

They want an endorsement? I endorse a brokered convention, so we can get a president who believes in the things I believe in: in big guns, red meat, cigar-chomping, manly suits, and hot trophy wife poontang.

That's the America I believe in. It's the America I grew up in. And it's the America we all deserve.

You can all suck it. Now get the hell off my lawn.

Now, where was this straight talkin' Fred Thompson on the campaign trail when we needed him most? :)

Envisioning when all that is Left is the Right.

haystack, I hope you enjoy the next four years (or eight, God help us) of hillary's administration. mccain will never win in November as he cannot deliver Republican voters. I for one will never cast a vote for him regardless of the consequences. He is a sellout and intends to sell us out as well.

if you can't discern sarcasm, you need to read about bluebonnets...not politics-the mccain shot notwithstanding, with Thompson out we'll be swearing in a Democrat anyway-whether his name is hillary or barack is of little consequence. It could be Mccain or romney or huckabee or Giuliani...we'll be living the liberal life soon enough my friend-get used to it.

The fact that you'd sit it out rather than allow Hillary to become president really says a lot. The fact that the people to the far right in here decry McCain for being a liberal and the dKos crowd thinks he's a puppet of Bush's to the right is the very reason he will probably win. And if he loses because people think he's not conservative enough, so they allow Obama or Hillary to win and appoint pro-choicers, then you will have no one to blame but yourself.

It has been a privilege to serve as your President for the past eight years.

God bless America

and neither will many other grassroots hardcore loyal Republicans, who are *more loyal* to its conservative platform and principles than the RINO McCain and the operatives who support him.

I alway vote R... and dont give me the patronizing 'oh you are for hillary' garbage, just because I wont help a RINO like McCain.

I am an activist who made calls, signs, spent money, all sorts of things for Bush in 2000, 2004 and many many other Republican candidates over the years. I learned not to waste my time on weasel candidates and races where the 'gain' for conservatives is nonexistent. It takes time, money, effort to do these things. McCain is a puke and deserves the back of our hand.

the thought of lifting a finger to help McCain is anathema to me and many other conservatives. When we asked him to not give amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens, he gave us the finger and his underling Graham called us bigots. And that's just one of his many treasonable actions against fellow Republicans.

Let the RINO moderates who love this guy do all the work this time.

"And if he loses because people think he's not conservative enough, so they allow Obama or Hillary to win and appoint pro-choicers, then you will have no one to blame but yourself." No, I am going to blame YOU and all those other idiots who nominated him in the first place! The idea that McCain is more electable is a media myth btw built up from early polling that take no account of these factors. The base wont help him, he's going to have get his K street pals to raise the money and pay for his campaign streetworkers.

I hope you will select a congressional or senate candidate &/or a good conservative for your state legislature to support! The presidential election is important; however, it's not the only one that will be happening & is important!

If you think McCain is going to appoint pro-lifers as opposed to the O'Connor type that reflects his moderate positions on everything in American life, you're just smoking crack.

He is a freaking moderate. America wants a moderate (given his standing in the polls) or he would have lost these primaries and caucuses.

Insisting that anything is better than a Democrat and winding up with a Democrat with an R after his name gives you what, exactly?

A democrat with an R after his name.

Admit it and move on-you'll take anyone but Hillary Or Obama...even if that person stands for most of the same things...and be freaking honest about it, please.

That's just not a realistic point of view at all. Anyone with the slightest objectivity and the least interest in how the United States will be governed in the next 4 to 8 years can see a vast gulf of difference between the Obama/Clinton world and the McCain/Romney/Giuliani/Huckabee worlds.

Vast.

absentee

McCain is a moderate Republican-against the Bush tax cuts, in favor of Govt. intervention in free speech vis a vis campaigns, and pro-amnesty, And, he's unashamed of it. In this regard, and to the point I was responding to, he will NOT select pro-life judges...he's a moderate-he's more likely to put another O'Connor on the bench than ANY of the other candidates in the GOP.

Second, McCain or Huckabee are as much "Government will fix your problems" as Clinton and Obama-and you can wiggle around that truth all you want-there will be moderate to Liberal governance coming out of the White House in ANY of those scenarios...the last best hope for an INKLING of conservatism lies with Romney-and he can't be trusted...sorry my friend-I luv ya, but we disagree.

Huckabee and McCain are not far removed from Clinton and Obama but by degree...

and I'm thinking that your rendition will pretty much mirror Fred's noble gesture of stepping aside.

As he stated tonight, THIS WAS NEVER ABOUT HIM. His calling is much higher. And Much More Lucrative. Yes he will soon be pontificating on the radio, and enjoying much better working hours(and pay) than his rivals are still pursuing.

But I predict that he'll endorse McCain, sooner than later.

However I understand the sarcasm! This does look like something brilliant that FrankJ @ IMAO would write...

At least we know Fred got the endorsement of the Man Show.

I am not old enough to know in detail the events of the late 1970's, but it seems like we are in a similar political landscape - the Democrats appear to be in the ascendancy and Republicans are set on choosing a moderate candidate over a more conservative one. From those of you who were actually politically aware during this time, what do you think? And if that's the case, assuming the Democrats win this year, could Fred Thompson conceivably represent our Reagan, and recapturing the White HOuse in 2012?

with the republicans as the democrats of 1968

1976 is close, i think, but since we weren't at war, it's not quite close enough

W.C. Fields for President!

More like 76. Big anti-war anti-establishment crowd pushing things then. It spawned Hillary and Bill and a whole bunch of lefties.

Reagan was highly competitive in 1976 and could have won at the convention if not for a poor strategic chocie to name Schwieker his VP candidate- Fred hasn't been competitive at all and will be a total non-factor by the time the convention roles around. Regan was even a factor in '68 and if he and Rockefeller had been able to come togetehr he may have had his chance then.

Reagan was highly regarded for his communication and leadership skills and his ability to inspire a crowd - Fred's downfall is becuase he has shown a lack of communication and leadership skills and hasn't inspired a broad audience.

Reagan went into 1980 as the clear favorite for the nomination - does anyone really see Thompson as being the clear favorite in four years given his performance in the last few months?

No by Cowboy

But I can see Romney doing it. He just needs to build his cred.

You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.

Old line conservatives have been through this stuff so long it is not as earth shaking to us as it is to younger people. We saw Robert Taft, who basically fought the dems almost alone for years, shot out of the saddle by the eastern liberals and we got Ike. That was not the end of the world because Ike was a true patriot and didn't allow petty politics to guide his basic values. He made mistakes that hurt us badly true, can you say Earl Warren, but we survived.
We got John Kennedy who many thought at the time was the end of all things, but the world didn't end.
We saw Barry Goldwater literally tarred and feathered and presented as a nuclear nut by eastern liberals and a hostel press, and got more of Lyndon Johnson and his great society BS. We survived him and Richard Nixon's resignation.
We saw Ronald Reagan rejected by eastern liberals and ended up with Gerald Ford. A nice man who didn't have a clue about anything and got beat by Jimmy Carter no less. Through it all we survived.
Every election is the end of the world to some and the beginning of a new effort for others.
You younger friends are experiencing what we have endured for most of our adult lives, and it is not a pleasant experience. But we learn and go on to fight another day.
The thing that disturbs me now as it has in every other election process, lo these many years, is the total ignorance of so many voters.
MANY CITIZENS WHO CLAIM TO BE CONSERVATIVES DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT TERM REALLY MEANS. How else can you explain the number of votes cast for McCain and Huckabee. These two are absolute jokes as far as real conservatives are concerned yet "conservatives" are supporting them.
All demagogies use the same approach when dealing with the mob. Get the press on your side,or take it over, then repeat the same mantra over and over again.
The average citizen is too lazy to actually seek the truth and after a while succumb to the stilted propaganda, because it is the easiest thing to do.
Today's American citizen are not any different. That is the scary part folks.

"Barry Goldwater literally tarred and feathered"

Got any pics?

Nope. The hostel press doesn't take pictures.

Only the hotel press has that kind of class.

--
all right, I kid but I think the guy has a point.

Haystack, "yer tha man!!" Your comments are well written. Too bad you have to put the asterisks in certain select words...the rant loses so much flavor!

As a very conservative member of the party I hope and pray Fred will stay in and fight this one out till the very end. For what is a great man that give up on his way to winning a great battle!

Merlin of Camelot

I am 19 and very bitter, I will eventually get over it but I am sensing the need for a new Republican Party; because what we have now is a place where a liberal can come in say nice things about Jesus, speak like a preacher and get 30 percent in S.C. I wont stand for it.

primaries in the 80s. Huck, unlike Jackson, is pro-life, anti-gay marriage, pro war, for tax cuts, would close the border, etc.

I was for Fred and Huck is my #4 or #5, but he is no liberal on many key issues.

has worn on.

He is a talented politician. Not sure if that should inspire confidence . . . or concern.

That would be a good name for a band.

Fortunately for us, Fred is not anywhere near the immature, irresponsible, over-emotional, selfish and whiny child that you apparently are.

Nothing says leadership like blaming the people who were supposed to follow you for not falling in line. Honestly, this would be a fitting speech since it would solidify all the reasons he didn't amount to anything in this campaign - but I'm pretty sure he has more class and self awareness to realize it would be a total copout on his part.

I have SO much respect for Fred Thompson, but alas it is over. Here's to hoping he can still put some Conservative influence into this race and our nominee.

Now I get to spend more time with my family and working and praying etc. I will NOT sit this one out, no matter who we nominate, but they will have to come a long way before I actually do work on their behalf, other than the work of my vote against a socialist/communist on the other side of the aisle.

Haystack very funny and as the great movie line goes
"I am picking up on your sarcasm"

"What would Reagan do?"
