Fred Thompson: You Had Me At Hello

I said it before, I'll say it again; I'll vote for any of the Republican candidates over any of the Democrats. Of the Republicans, Fred Thompson is the closest thing to a true Reagan conservative.
What are the important issues facing our Republic? The Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Immigration, Social Security Reform, Tax Reform, Gun Control, Abortion and Health Care Reform. Fred Thompson positions on all these issues are, in my estimation, correct. Accordingly, WMTN endorses the candidacy of Fred Thompson for President of The United States.
The strongest candidate the Democrats have is Hillary Clinton. Even if I agreed with her on all the issues, which I don't, I couldn't vote for her because I think her personality is far too polarizing.
Barrack Obama seems like a genial chap, but this is no time for on the job training. The rest of the Dems pack is pretty lame, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, John Edwards, Dennis Kucinich, Bill Richardson whose stupid comments on Pakistan after the Bhutto assassination are a national embarrassment. Can you really imagine a world where any of these people would be your first choice for POTUS?
Mike Huckabee is getting a soft ride right now because the MSM would love to see him be the GOP's choice in November when his manifold weaknesses will be rediscovered with a vengeance. He seems like a nice enough guy, but he is no conservative.
Rudy Giuliani would be a tough, no nonsense chief executive, but his positions on abortion and gun control just don't fly for this Republican. And like HRC he has the tendency to be needlessly polarizing.
Mitt Romney just doesn't strike me as genuine and his positions on the 2nd amendment have recently been discovered. It seems the air in Boston causes flips and subsequent flops.
