Fred Thompson….*YAWN*

What a night to enter the GOP Presidential Race.  Like General Clark in 2004, Fred Thompson’s campaign began as a Draft, but thats where the comparison ends. Thompson and his team goofed when they decided to announce on the same night his Republican opponents for President were debating in New Hampshire. In that debate, Senator John McCain of Arizona who is on his death knell rallied and literally mopped the floor with his fellow combatants, delivering a stunning roundhouse punch to Rudy Guiliani and Mitt Romney while Mike Huckabee & Ron Paul squabbled like two kids in a crowded restaurant. What was the news afterwards?

Not Fred Thompson. I mean Thompson is a two term U.S. Senator, former White House Counsel, Watergate Investigative Counsel against the Nixon White House, and a movie star as well as recently one of the main cast members of LAW & ORDER. He’s a southerner announcing for President with so many Reaganesque qualities.

Yet the next day, the news was about McCain’s stunning performance, the squabble between Huckabee and Paul, and then with a yawn, Oh yeah Fred Thompson announced for President on Jay Leno.

A recent South Carolina poll also shows Thompson is off to a weak start.

Fred Thompson – 19%
Rudy Giuliani – 18%
John McCain – 15%
Mitt Romney – 11%
Newt Gingrich – 9%
Mike Huckabee – 6%

Interesting stuff people.
