Where does Fred Thompson keep coming up with these people?!

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,308240,00.html


A close ally to Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson resigned his post Monday as a top campaign bundler, FOX News has learned, a day after his drug-dealing history was revealed.

Phil Martin, a businessman who has lent Thompson his Cessna to fly around the country, was one of four campaign co-chairman for the '08 Republican candidate. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Martin also posted a guilty plea in 1979 for selling 11 pounds of marijuana and a no contest plea in 1983 for cocaine trafficking and conspiracy.

Fazak;

You're starting to sound like a Democrat..Always taking some remote incident and trying to tack it on the competitors to Ron Paul !

...All the while we are waiting to hear something positive about Ron Paul ..

Clumsy attempts at smearing other candidates just doesn't get it !

Informing us of some SUPER IDEA Ron Paul has come up with would help...

Ron Paul won't even make it to the primary. What Fred's ex-folks did won't effect my vote at all. I'll still vote for Fred.

Thompson addressed this on Meet the Press on Sun. Evidently Fazak you did not watch. The guy quit to spare Thompson to have to deal with the issue I respect that and the guy served his time and cleaned up his act good for him. I would say lots of folks may have friends and supporters in this case that you do not know their complete history. Thompson said in Sunday that he would check into it but he would not throw his friend out since the he also heard the guy did serve his time and paid his debt and cleaned up his act.
FAZAK Thompson must scare you as you are doing all you can to discredit him. Your attemps to discredit Thompson and put Paul on a pedestal is getting pathetic. Give it a rest. The more you pull this crap the more you alianate the rest of us that may have voted for Paul if it would have ever came down to it which it will not. You do your candidate more harm than good with your tactics.

I'm not defending or criticizing Fred but lots of people have skeletons in their closets and he probably hated to turn down free help. Sometimes you don't look a gift horse in the mouth but you should. What do you expect from the political arena .... you don't get there without making deals with the devil or some of his buddies. I suspect some of the actual presidential candidates have done worse and will do much worse if they are elected. I think the most honest candidates are Brownback and Huckabee as they have survived scrutiny from their congregations without being crucified. I plan to vote for the candidate who I think has broken the fewest of the ten commandments.

It would depend on the individual, but I maybe would have an issue with a man of the cloth being president not for his values but for what he would do when push comes to shove if need be. In this day and age we need a decisive man who is not afraid to protect this country when need be. I wonder if a man of the cloth could do that in good concience?

I know what you are saying jh45. It may not be time for the meek to inherit the earth but I hate to see our President turn out to be the Antichrist.

Ha, the man did his time, paid his debt to society, so the slate is supposed to be wiped clean. But he quite anyway, because of people like you that are just looking for dirt to bring up. Don't tell me you and people you know don't have a skeleton or two in your closet, we all do if we really admit it. I think back about a year or so when a movie came out about a shooter. The fact that during his teens he had gotten into some trouble was enough for some people here to demand that no one go see the movie.

Look at Johnny Case, Randy Travis, they made mistakes when they were young. But look at how they turned their lives around. So your reasoning here is off base.

At this point I am not a Thompson fan, but this is sour grapes. Get over it, Paul's done!

JH45gun;

You can relax about how Huckabee stands with the war on terror.. Although i have some issues with him..national defense id not one of them...

< www.mikehuckabee.com > when you get there, go to the overhead bar and click on "issues"..on the site that pops up click on "national security/foreign policy: Iraq" ,
there you can read his stand (which I think is right) and there is even a video at the bottom where he explains his position...
