Thompson Speech

I was with former Republican Senator Fred Thompson last night at an event held in Stamford, Connecticut and heard his speech.

While I would’ve liked a little more energy, he did make several strong points—especially his attack on the Democrats’ high tax redistributionism through higher spending and bigger government. He also cautioned against the U.S. imitating the European economic model.

Mr. Thompson came across very strong on national security and homeland security. He also referred to the defeatist Democrats on the war.

It was a pleasure to visit with him personally during dinner.

Rumor has it he will formally announce his run for president in early July.
