REDSTATE = Hypocrites in Denial

REDSTATE should now renamed FREDSTATE because in the midst of their blasting Senators Lugar and Domenici as traitors for their recent defection to the side of common sense over the long lost war in Iraq they have no less than 5 new diaries crying in denial over a new LA TIMES article bringing to light even more Pro-Choice skeletons out of Fred Thompson's closet.

Now it's quite clear that the real reason the Religious Right Social Conservatives were unhappy with a Giulaini candidacy or a Romney candidacy had nothing to do with Abortion. However it has everything to do with Giulaini's stance on Gay rights and Romney's Mormonism. It also had a lot to do with Giuliani and Romney not being native sons of the South. The GOP is largely a Regional Party that is based in the South. So they bring in Fred Thompson to satisfy their Southern Deep Fried Base yet they try to ignore the fact that he is either still Pro-Choice or he is exactly what they condemned Mitt Romney for being a Flip-flopper albeit one with a Southern Accent. The reason John McCain couldn't win their support was because they still hold a grudge against him for telling the truth by calling the religious right agents of intolerance.

On abortion, both Thompson and Cooper are pro-choice. But Thompson favors parental notification, Cooper voted against it.  

Fred Thompson, the conservative Great White Hope, is opposed to abortion. Completely opposed. Unrelentingly opposed. Unless someone pays him to lobby in favor of it.

MSNBC THOMPSON'S MIXED ABORTION RECORD?

The New York Sun : Thompson Scrutinized on Abortion

From his very own home state newspaper The Tennessean
Thompson survey said:"I do not believe abortion should be criminalized"

Documents The Tennessean located last week in Thompson's Senate archive at the University of Tennessee show:

*  On a 1996 Christian Coalition survey, he checked "opposed" to an amendment to the U.S. Constitution "protecting the sanctity of human life."

* He included a handwritten clarification: "I do not believe abortion should be criminalized. This battle will be won in the hearts and souls of the American people."

* In 1996, asked by the Memphis group FLARE (Family, Life, America, Responsible Education Under God Inc.) if human life begins at conception, Thompson circled "N/A."

Those answers could complicate Thompson's standing with the Republican Party right wing, which has been bolstered by his seemingly reliable pro-life voting record.

Thompson and his small campaign staff say he has never supported abortion rights.

What more does it take for these REDSTATE hypocrites to admit what the rest of us obviously see and that is Thompson is Pro-Choice or at least was Pro-Choice until he decided to run for president.

Re: REDSTATE = Hypocrites in Denial
I always enjoy your topics and the crucial info you lace them with. These hypocrites won't care unless they HAVE to. I heard someone say the other day the difference between Dems and Repugs is, Dems care more about being right,Repugs care more about winning. Of course Thomp$on is a money grubbing flip flopper but that's what they like. Hypocrisy. Cause in the end as long as they can have someone who'll protect their interest and continue to spread the lies and hypocrisy they religiously endorse, they'll find a way to overlook the inconsistency.

Thank You by the way what do you think

about GOP claiming to be a pro-life party thats probably the most hypocritical aspect of GOP although they give us plenty to choose from.

GOP the Party of Life

Fred Thompson Sons Followed Him Into Lobbyist Work

It's bad enough that Republican Fred Thompson is seeking to become President of the United States after three decades of working as a lobbyist, hiring himself out to promote political policies in return for fat paycheck. What's worse is that it isn't just Fred Thompson who is using his former position in government in order to gain personal profit.

Fred Thompson's sons, Tony and Daniel, started their careers as lobbyists after their father gained a seat in the United States Senate, getting work based on the perception that they had access to powerful people in the government through their father...

Looks like Fred Thompson's sons, Tony and Daniel, are way too busy to be in Iraq!!!
