A Man For the Times

The Republican debates were held 2 days ago. I noticed many pundits were trying to paint this in the context of which candidate can fill Reagan's boots. Frankly there was not a Reaganesque person among them. If you have to try to be Reagan-like then you're not like Reagan because his appeal was that he was his own man.

The one potential candidate that wasn't there is the only one that can not only fill Reagan's boots but in all respect place his own pair beside them.

What I like about Fred Thompson is he tells it like it is. Contrast him with Hillary, Obama, Romney or Guilliani who carefully frame their messages and responses in a politically crafted manner. In Hillary's case in becomes blatant pandering.
