The most important thing I learned from yesterday’s Republican Presidential Debate is that not only is Senator Fred Thompson completely dull, but he still employs former Senator Spencer Abraham–Hezbollah’s, Al-Qaeda’s, and the PLO’s best friend in the U.S. Senate–at the top of his campaign.
Jihad Spence is not only baaaack, he never left. Fred Thompson didn’t listen to your many, many complaints about Abraham’s disturbing pro-PLO, Hezbollah, and Al-Qaeda actions. Thompson’s campaign simply lied about it, claiming they got rid of Abraham, which they never actually did. At yesterday’s debate, the Thompson campaign utilized Abraham as its spokesman and pointman for the press, where he was repeatedly identified as a top Thompson campaign official.
Quotes from yesterday’s and today’s editions of The Detroit Newsistan confirm it:
The Thompson camp has a Michigan tie. Former Michigan GOP chairman and U.S. Sen. Spencer Abraham is co-chairman of Thompson’s national campaign.
“His answers showed tonight he’s more than ready to run this country,” said former Michigan Sen. Spence Abraham, a top official in Thompson’s campaign.
Then, there’s this from Associated Press:
Abraham, Allen and Cheney to head Thompson campaign
McLEAN, Va. – Former Virginia senator George Allen is joining former Michigan senator Spencer Abraham as a cochair of Sen. Fred Thompson’s 2008 presidential campaign.
And The New York Times confirms it, too.
When your man continues to employ a pan-Jihadist as his top advisor–after he’s been informed of the man’s frightening views–that means your man has no problem with those views and gives you a good idea what he would do as President. I mean, would you vote for a guy who employed CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper as his top campaign guy? Would you want him in the White House? Abraham is basically the same thing as Hooper (and was very close to Hooper as a U.S. Senator and Bush Secretary of Energy).
You’ll recall that this past summer, as soon as Thompson announced that Jihad Spence was his new campaign manager, I reposted and updated a past column I’ve written about Abraham’s work on behalf of Islamic terrorists, including sending billions of our money directly to Hezbollah and refusing to condemn Yasser Arafat’s homicide bombings. This caused a lot of conservatives to dump Thompson and sent his campaign reeling.
So–in addition to attacking me personally–the Thompson campaign stepped back from Abraham, naming a new “campaign manager.” But, as I pointed out, that was all for show. A big fat lie . . . kinda like Fred.
Now we have the confirmation. Spencer Abraham–the pan-Jihadist Senator and Energy Secretary–is still running Fred Thompson’s campaign.
When you support this . . .
You get this . . .
