Thompson Blogger Call - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics
Thompson Blogger Call

Fred Thomson on a just completed conference call with bloggers said he plans to use tonight's debate as an opportunity to draw contrast between himself and his opponents, making the case that he's the only consistent, comprehensive, conservative in the race.

Given the volatile nature of the race, Thompson said South Carolina was "tailor made" to make his case and build on his third place finish in Iowa.

He said one of the things that has surprised people about his candidacy is that, though he has an acting background, he's not "slick" or "scripted."

"That's not me, never has been," Thompson said. "I have to be myself."

The media has developed its stereotypes about his candidacy, he said, but insisted, "I'm just doing my thing."

In past debates, Thompson has gone after Romney, Huckabee, and Giuliani, but he hasn't touched his old friend McCain. I wonder if that dynamic will change tonight.
