Thompson's Speaks - People Listen

Fred Thompson spoke in Virginia this weekend and in contrast to President Bush, Mr. Thompson is a pleasure to listen to... and he makes sense too.

I'm not taking shots at the president, I'm expressing how much I enjoy hearing Thompson and his ideas... they resonate with me at a time when other candidates are simply "positioning."

Here's my suggestion to Governor Romney, my favorite pick, polish up your stump speech and start talking to people like it's your last shot to convince them to vote for you. Why? Because Thompson does it naturally.

Here's a fact - I've never seen Law and Order - not once. So I don't like Thompson because of a television character he's portrayed. I like him because he has the ability to communicate, and I would, as others have, compare him to Ronald Reagan.

I don't know about his personal life, but I'm sure we'll hear about it very soon. Until then, every Republican presidential candidate should be tweaking their strategy.
