Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson at RNC

Nie jestem entuzjastą Senatora McCaina (Reason: Be Afraid of President McCain), ale to już takie wybory, że liberał nie ma kogo być entuzjastą. W każdym razie przedstawienie Johna McCaina przez Freda Thompsona na konwencji było całkiem niezłe. Nawet jeśli McCain ma wszystko na odwrót to cały czas jest nieporównywalnie bardziej imponującym człowiekiem niż Senator Obama. Trzy momenty, które mi zapadły w pamięci:

"Also here tonight is John's 96 year old mother, Roberta. All I got to say is, if Mrs Roberta have been captured by North Vietnamese, they would have surrendered."

"Johns father was a bit of a rebel too. In his first two semesters of the naval academy he managed to earn 323 demerits. Unfortunately, John later saw this as a record to be beaten."

"We need a president who knows that you don't make citizens prosperous by making Washington richer. And you don't live through an economic downturn by imposing one of the greatest tax increases in American history. Now, our opponents tell us not to worry about their tax increases. They tell you, they're not going to tax your family. Noooo, they're just going to tax businesses. Sooo, unless you buy something from a business like groceries or gasoline or unless you get a paycheck from a business, a big business or a small business, don't worry. It's not going to affect you..."
