Fred Thompson - Comment

Thanks for the comment, Jeff.

But, my approach is straightforward: I compare the web site published comments of each candidate to nine specific problems we face as a country.

It is, I think, the responsibility of each serious candidate for President to clearly and succinctly establish his positions so that they are accessible to the electorate. A candidate who fails to do that can be accused of dissembling, obfuscation and a longer list of adjectives.

Thompson has not provided access to his positions.

My comment stands.


Fred Thompson

Fred Thompson is running, excuse me - 'testing the waters', but he has said NOTHING about ANY issue []. He is a total 'pig-in-a-poke'. Yet he shows as the number two candidate in some Republican polls.

Perhaps some enterprising person can list his donors to see where he would lead the country.

Score Zero on everything. Do not let him into the stadium, even as an usher.

Newt Gingrich

Here's how Newt Gingrich's [] issue positions compare to the nine critical points.

Newt is not yet running, but a supporter group has reproduced his stands on many issues. He seems to be an extreme supporter of Classical economics who believes the market can solve all issues. I think Gingrich would simply continue the present administrations's policies.

1.Political Corruption: Score 0

No Mention - no surprise

2. Military/Industrial Complex: Score 0

Strong supporter of MIC - wish I had negative scores.

3. Energy: Score 1

Actually has thought about alternatives and wants to support research.

4. Unions - Labor and Consumer: Score 0

No Mention - no surprise

5. Income and Wealth Disparity: Score 0

Expresses concern about Social Security's future effects on working people - add 0.5, but his solution is to privatize it - subtract 0.5

6. Elections: Score 0

No Mention - no surprise

7. Judicial Independence: Score 0

No Mention - no surprise

8. Trade deficits: Score 0

No Mention - no surprise

9. Usury Law: Score 0

No Mention - no surprise

Gingrich scores 1 of 9 for a .110 average, Trade bait only, do not play
