Fred on the economy:

Partial transcript:

There have been a lot of good ideas as to how to get this money into people’s hands quickly. Some have suggested, for example, that we drop it by airplane. But that leaves something to be desired. Some people will have bigger rakes than others. It won’t be distributed equitably. My favorite stimulus idea is to give everybody who needs a job a shovel. We put half the people to work digging holes. We’ll get the other half to fill em up. Everybody gets a check and the unemployment problem is solved. And theres no limit to the number of holes we can get Americans to dig and fill.


and now to the gentlemen at my last lecture who said that this sounded like telling a fat guy that the way to lose weight is to eat more donuts…I can only say that there are cleary some among us who still don’t quite understand the sophistication of the economy.


So this Holiday season be extra nice to the kids. Bless there hearts they have no idea whats in store for them. But, of course thats there problem. Our job…your job, this holiday season, is to follow the lead of our government. Spend more than you can afford. More than you can ever possibly pay back. “Ask not what your country can spend for you … ask what you can spend for your country.”

Classic Fred!

    i loved fred thompson, he is very folksy like sarah palin and that is their appeal. he should have gone on, in my state he had already dropped out by the time our primary rolled around. i personally tink that the primaries should all be held on one day just like the general election. if he had stayed in i think he would have given maccain a run for his money, but we know what happened. mccain was our candidate and we supported him, but i love fred. i have always loved him, even on t.v.

    he might have said some good things in that video but i couldn’t get over the cheese of him turning and say, “hey…” and holding a cigar in his hand. Come on! How lame! And then he goes on to give up “hope” that the economy will turn soon. A page out of the liberal illuminati book sure! I’ve got to see it to believe it!

    What a dufus. He’s living in Hollywood lala land in his head.

    I give these Hollywood dufus guys one free pass. Just to allow for the fact that everyone say’s something dumb sooner or later…

    After that, I stop supporting them and their projects.

    Unfortunately we no longer have Fred Thompson in our government, but we do have Harry Reid, an example of what the Dems elected as their leader in the Senate.

    Reid appears to be quite proud of the costly new visitors center that took triple the amount of money out of our economy that was originally planned.

    Speaking of saying something dumb sooner or later or constantly.

    “The Capitol Visitors Center, which opened this morning, may have tripled its original budget and fallen years behind schedule, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid found a silver lining for members of Congress: tourists won’t offend them with their B.O. anymore.

    “My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway,” said Reid in his remarks. “In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”

    But it’s no longer going to be true, noted Reid, thanks to the air conditioned, indoor space.

    And that’s not all. “We have many bathrooms here, as you can see,” Reid continued. “Souvenirs are available.””
