Fred Thompson just gave one of the best political speeches I’ve ever heard. He not only knows how to twist the knife, but his telling of McCain’s story was emotionally powerful.
Had he done this well in his campaign, he’d be the main attraction of this campaign.
One of my favorite parts?
Now our opponents tell you not to worry about their tax increases.
They tell you they are not going to tax your family.
No, they’re just going to tax “businesses”! So unless you buy something from a “business”, like groceries or clothes or gasoline … or unless you get a paycheck from a big or a small “business”, don’t worry … it’s not going to affect you.
They say they are not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the “other” side of the bucket! That’s their idea of tax reform.
UPDATE: Joe Lieberan also did a good jab of reaching out to independents and Democrats. I disagree with 90% of what Lieberman believes in, but he is a patriot who truly does put “country first.” It couldn’t have been easy for him to buck his own party like this, but at least he has the political courage to put country above partisanship. We need more honorable opposition like him.
