A Different Kind of Christmas Message from Fred Thompson

Hillary Clinton’s Christmas message focused on all the gifts her government will give us.

The Instapundit notes that Fred Thompson has also posted a Christmas video message. Fred’s message has a noticeably different focus:

Someone should remind Hillary of this famous Democratic quote:

“And so, my fellow americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.”

John F. Kennedy, Inaugural address, January 20, 1961
35th president of US 1961-1963 (1917 – 1963)

By the way, Fred was also the subject of a recent hit piece over his campaign swing through Iowa that you can read about in these posts by Bob Owens at Confederate Yankee and updated at Pajamas Media. So while I’m watching Fred videos, I may as well add a link to Fred’s “No Hats” video.

  2. This story got me thinking about Maj.Scott Southworth who adopted the little iraqi boy with cerebral palsy. I googled him up and it appears he is working hard to get more kids out of iraqi orphanages were the kid’s chances of surviving is slim and over here and adopted.

    There were a few other soldiers who adopted or arranged for iraqi kids to be brought here and adopted, but I can’t remember their names.

  5. Now that’s a class ad. I’m sending Fred some of the campaign money I’ve been holding back.

  7. I keep reading about how Fred is too lazy and he doesn’t really want the job. I also keep seeing lies in the media.

    The people complaining about Fred get their information from where?

    Could it be that Fred is working just as hard, or maybe harder than everyone else?
