Sen. Thompson To Join Race

Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson is set to file the paper work for a "testing the waters" committee this coming Monday, the day before the CNN Republican debate.

"Thompson, as of now, is seen by some as best positioned to be the guy who can keep this conservative coalition together," says Chuck Todd of NBC.

Todd goes onto say: "Like the rest of the three frontrunners, though, there are some positions Thompson has taken in the past (including supporting McCain-Feingold campaign finance regulation and abortion) that indicate Thompson may be just as muddy on some key conservative positions as Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and John McCain."

Huckabee Ready to End IRS

Mike Huckabee is ready to put an end the current tax system and replace it with what he calls a "consumption tax."

"You get rid of income tax, you get rid of all of the withholding, you get rid of corporate taxes completely, totally. "You replace it with a 23 percent consumption tax. It will bring business back to the United States that's leaving our shores because our tax laws make it impossible for an American-based business to compete," Huckabee said earlier this week on Fox News Sunday.

Huckabee Could Make Brownback 'Toast'

In the May 18 National Journal Republican candidate ranking Sam Brownback was ranked as number seven, behind Mike Huckabee.

The report said "He [Brownback] needs to take Huckabee out. If he doesn't, he's toast." While Huckabee, who came in number five, was said to be "comforting, reassuring, strong in the right ways, quick with a witty aside, respectful of his peers" in the last debate, even though he does not have the money or staff as other campaigns.

Cort Takes Straw Poll

Republican long shot Hugh Cort won the Narragansett and South Kingstown Presidential Straw Poll held last night in Narragansett, RI. Mitt Romney came in second, Rudy Giuliani third and Sen. John McCain came in fourth.

"Winning this straw poll proves you have to fight for votes in every state, you cannot do like other candidates and blow off a state like Rhode Island. Secondly, it shows that as folks hear our message of traditional Christian values and our plan to win the Iraq War and keep America safe, they respond in a positive manner," Cort was quoted as saying in an e-mail update.

Debate Poll

The campaign to get John Cox has been ended. Instead, a poll will be open until June 4 to see who you would like to be in the debate and the results will be e-mailed to the debate sponsors.

Cast your vote in the new debate poll. If your candidate is missing leave a reply with his or her name on this post.

Romney Criticized On Immigration Stand

Republican Mitt Romney if facing criticism over where he stands on the new immigration legislation as he campaigns in Florida.

Romney has called for the stronger boarder security, tamper-proof ID cards, and that illegals should go back to their country and "get in line."

To that Marshal Fitz of the American Immigration Lawyers Association says: ''That's exactly what's on the table. All of those things are part of the immigration package. Romney and the other candidates who continue to beat their chests against this legislation are just playing to the conservative base.''

McCain Loses Temper

NewsMax reports that "Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. and Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, launched into a shouting match during a Thursday Capitol Hill meeting, where reportedly the presidential candidate dropped the 'F' word and more."

The argument apparently started when Cornyn brought up the subject of how many judicial appeals that illegal immigrants could get.

McCain went on to use vulgar words in the argument that reportedly took place in front of other Senators and aids in a meeting room.

New Ron Paul Video

Ron Paul's Educating Rudy

GOP Candidates On New Immigration Plan

Republican Candidates on the new immigration legislation:

Mitt Romney:
"I strongly oppose today's bill going through the Senate. It is the wrong approach. Any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country indefinitely, as the new 'Z-Visa' does, is a form of amnesty. That is unfair to the millions of people who have applied to legally immigrate to the U.S."

Tom Tancredo:
Bill creators "seem to think that they can dupe the American public into accepting a blanket amnesty if they just call it 'comprehensive' or 'earned legalization' or 'regularization.' The president is so desperate for a legacy and a domestic-policy win that he is willing to sell out the American people and our national security."

Duncan Hunter:
"I vow to oppose this legislation supported by Senators Edward Kennedy and John McCain.It provides a vast new immigration benefit to millions of illegal aliens who have broken our laws to live in the United States.I opposed the 1986 amnesty act because of this same reason.It proved to be the draw that we predicted it would be.I am deeply disappointed to see history repeating itself."

Corsi Tops Giuliani

Jerome Corsi (C) won the most recent match up poll here on the CP08 with 37.5% of the 24 votes cast, Rudy Giuliani came in second with 16.67%.

Hillary Clinton (D), Chuck Hagel (U-08) and Joe Lieberman (I) all tied for third with 12.5% each. Wayne Allyn Root (L) got 8.33%.

Giuliani-Huckabee Ticket Not Likely

GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says he is not sure that he could be the running mate of a pro-abortion candidate (i.e. Rudy Giuliani) if does not become his party's nominee.

"This is an issue to me that is very critical," the Associated Press reports the former Arkansas governor as saying. "It's one of the reasons that I got into politics because I believe the manner in which we treat innocent life and the matter in which we respect human life, at whatever stage is an incredibly powerful statement about who we are as a people," Huckabee added.

Republican Sprankle Responds to Debate

Republican Presidential candidate Keith Sprankle gave his response to last night's GOP debate to the Conservative President 2008.

Sprankle Response to 5/15/2007 GOP Debate:

The debate public form is meant to bring out the differences

When I think of a debate, it is a question and answer period of specific topics and how each opposing party would approach and solve the issue. It would include the tactics and resources one would employ in these circumstances. Although one minute is not long enough to elaborate on any subject to the appropriate degrees necessary, they should have answers that reflect a pattern of thought and planning.

Instead we find several of the candidates using rehearsed responses, even switching to previous questions not asked of them, so they may expound their sound bite.

Throughout these debates we find ourselves still asking, “What wouldthat person do?” They repeat the problems we face as a Nation and expound on the obvious responses they believe America wants to hear.

Rudy grasp the moment to assert himself and his role as Americas’ Mayor when Ron Paul announced that 911 was Americas fault.

McCain capitalized on Mitt Romney for changing positions.

Huckabee sized the moment to bring up a $400 haircut of John Edwards.

Fun aside, what has been accomplished? None of these candidates brought fourth any new ideas or solutions to current problems. They are not even acknowledging that every problem in this Country has affects in more then one area. Gasoline, the economy, wars overseas and our National foreign policies on trade all work together affecting the daily lives of Middle America. Change one item and how are they going to deal with the results in five other areas?

But what are the real answers? Everyone agrees that we can cut spending, but how would they use the savings generated from those cuts? Give it back to the people? Maybe invest it in other programs like Social Security without seeking a solution to that problem? Our next President must have clear and comprehensive plans and solutions if our Country is going to successfully move through the next few years.

During this debate, the candidates even struggled to identify just what spending cuts or departments they would eliminate. The candidates sometimes did not even answer the direct question which was posed to them. Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore simply could not answer how he would protect the economy affect a terrorist attack. Mitt Romney said the key is prevention, but what in his platform would be different to create the prevention factor we need in this Nation.

My platform works together on many issues, all working in unison to create solutions to the problems we face. Each element in itself would be a benefit to our Country, but taken together creating a road map to a more peaceful and productive world, and the fulfillment of the American Dream for more people then ever possible before.

We need answers in future debates, real solutions and real plans. If these people had real plans for our future the debate answers would come naturally and smoothly. The only other unthinkable answer is that these people are simply afraid to alienate some of their voters and supporters at the cost of our Country. Is this the type of leader we need now?

Web Poll: Cox Should Have Debated

In poll held here on the Conservative President 2008, 85% of the 13 votes cast said that John Cox should have been in last night's debate.

Paul's Campaign Hurt In Debate

In last night's debate it appeared that Ron Paul blamed America for the 9-11 attacks. After the debate, however, Paul said: "No, I blamed bad policy over 50 years that leads to anti-Americanism. That’s little bit different from saying ‘blame America.’ Don’t put those words in my mouth.

"We’ve had an interventionist foreign policy for 50 years that has come back to haunt us. So that’s not ‘Blame America’ — that’s demagoguing, distorting issues…That’s deceitful to say those kinds of things."

Byron York comments:

So in the end, the candidate who made a big move, who came out of nowhere to win new name recognition was…Ron Paul. But it’s probably not the sort of name recognition Republican presidential candidates want. “Wow,” said one adviser to a rival campaign after listening to Paul’s blame-America lecture. “I haven’t heard anything like that this side of Rosie O’Donnell.”

Cox Excluded From Debate Despite Poll Results

World Net Daily Reports:

Cox said Fox did a poll of candidates registered to appear on the South Carolina primary ballot to determine who would be in the debate, and even though Cox actually finished first in one independent South Carolina county straw poll and placed second in another, he was left off the roster.

Cox said in the Fox poll, he actually was ahead of Jim Gilmore and Ron Paul. He said he was fifth against other candidates in an survey.

"So, what did Fox do? They changed the rules, throwing out their poll and using new criteria that allowed their chosen 10 to participate while excluding Cox," his campaign said.

Cox did file a law suite against Fox News that he lost, he will be present in the audience despite not be permitted to be allowed in the debate.

Romney, Giuliani and Paul Leading Positive Ratings

Gilchrist Leaves AIP, Rumors of Keyes Bolt

Don't expect to see Jim Gilchrsit become the next presidential candidate of the Constitution Party.

After doing very well as the candidate for the California American Independent Party (the state's CP affiliate) in a special congressional election in 2005 and mentioning a possible run under the party's banner for President, Trent Hill of the Louisiana Constitution Party told me yesterday that Gilchrist is now a member of the Republican Party.

Mr. Hill also said that although Alan Keyes is still in the GOP, there are rumors he is getting ready to bolt the party.

Hunter 'Worthy of Serious Consideration by Conservative Voters'

Mark M. Alexander of the Conservative Voice says Republican Presidential candidate Duncan Hunter is "worthy of serious consideration by conservative voters."

Alexander says that: "A Republican ticket will need a lot of bang for the buck, cutting a significant swath into the Democrats' base -- without losses on the right. In his Demo-dominated district, Hunter has proven he can win Democrats' votes without waffling on conservative principles."

Governor Beebe says his predecessor was wrong in choosing to believe in God but not the theory of evolution. Beebe said yesterday that no choice between the two is required.

Brownback Would Support Pro Choice Candidate

In last night's debate, Kansas Senator Sam Brownback, who is very much pro life, said that he would support the party's nominee if he (i.e. Rudy Giuliani) were pro choice.

He said that if you agree with a candidate 80% of the time he is your friend.

Cort Responds to Debate

Hugh Cort, a Republican running for President, sent out an e-mail with his response to the last night's Republican debate, which he was not invited to.

“The frontrunner candidates proved career politicians will do nothing but offer more of the same. None of them offered a real plan to win in Iraq," said Cort, the author of Saddam's Attacks on America.

Cort went onto say: “It’s time the other candidates stop hiding from these issues and offer real solutions."

Mr. Cort will be on the Conservative Show, hosted by myself, on May 14.

McManigal Ends Campaign

Today I received an e-mail from Libertarian Kent McManigal, who just yesterday said he would like to attend the LP candidate forum on the 21st, sent me an e-mail saying he has ended his campaign.

"Last night while trying to delete spam comments, I accidentally deleted most of the content on the Boston Tea Party's website. That was the last straw for me. I appreciate all the encouragement and support I have received in the past two and a half years," McManigal explains on his blog.

Democrats Say Reagan Ran in '88

On the Democrat's web site they now have an individual section for each of the Republicans appearing in tonight's debate.

In the Ron Paul section, the well educated liberals say that Ron Paul ran against Ronald Reagan in 1988. Last I checked, Reagan did not seek an un-constitutional third term but, George HW Bush was elected to the presidency that year in large victory over Democrat Michael Dukakis. Good job Dems, you really know your stuff!

Paul, Tancredo and Hunter Not Likely CP Candidates

Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter are all seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency. They are all also included in a presidential election poll on the Constitution Party web site,

Paul is currently leading with 45% in that poll as the first choice candidate for the Constitution Party nomination. Tancredo is in second 21% and just 5% are in favor of Hunter.

What is the reality that one of these men will become the next CP nominee? I believe there is none. Yesterday on my show the Louisiana CP contact Trent Hill said that not of these these men are currently interested in a Constitution Party run but, their is still a slim possibility that one of them may.

However, Hunter probably is the least likely to make a third party run since his son is planning on running as a Republican to replace his father in congress.
