IF YOU WANNA GUESS WHO ADAM PUTNAM IS FAVOURING FOR THE GOP NOMINATION...
Lakeland Ledger political columnist Bill Rufty makes note this week in his Polk Politics blog on the newspaper's Web site that the area's congressional representative seems to be leaning toward former U.S. Senator and Law and Order actor Fred Thompson --- if he decides to make a run for the White House.
While answering questions about the GOP presidential wannabees during a forum in Lakeland, the third ranking Republican in the House was strongly positive in his comments regarding Thompson, while making these comments:
About U.S. Senator John McCain: "...(his) strongest fans have been the media. To his credit is his consistency, especially on the war, but that is causing him to lose that (media) support. He is probably the best general election candidate, but he will have a difficult time in the primary.''
About former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani: "...(he) was a proven leader in crisis in 911. He is seen as a wartime president . But I don't think the American people want a wartime president. And there is the tawdry past.''
About former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney: "...(his) biggest problem is dealing with his flip flopping (on the issues). He has put the issue of his Mormon faith to rest, but the flip flopping accusation is still there.''
IMHO, Thompson should stick to what he knows best...playing a DA on TV.
