Re: Fred Takes Aim At Rudy

Why not go after Rudy on something that makes sense like abortion? Well here are some possibilities. First, maybe he really wouldn’t mind being VP– a great supporting role for a supporting actor. Second, he may figure it is better to let Romney and McCain or third party groups do the nasty work while he rides above the fray on abortion and gay marriage (where he has his own issues with social conservatives). Third, Thompson has not exactly been aggressive on the stump or in debates and maybe this is just him –nice guy, steady conservative but no instinct for the jugular. Fourth, I think the name of the game right now with Thompson and McCain is to inflict permanent damage on Romney and become the conservative alternative to Rudy around which the base can rally. If you compare the language used against Romney — nearly dripping with contempt — and that focused on Rudy I think there is no doubt who the first target is. But then, maybe Thompson just forgot his lines and with script in hand at the Voters Value Forum will ream Rudy.
