Lazy Fred Thompson vs. Hard-Working Mitt Romney

There are 3 reasons work ethic matters in the White House:


1. Without a strong work ethic, you won't GET to the white house. Fred Thompson thinks he can get the nomination with a "virtual campaign", but what about the general election? If we nominate a candidate with no ground troops, how can we win the general election against a well-organized and hard-working opponent with a real ground-game? The answer is that we won't will. We need an organizational powerhouse with an amazing appetite for hard work and a off-the-charts IQ. Yeah, we need Mitt. Alex Castellanos, Mitt's seasoned media guy, said of Mitt Romney “I have worked with many leaders and politicians, including some of the other presidential candidates in the race today, and none of them compares to Mitt’s work ethic nor to his energy level! He is the hardest working guy I have ever known!” http://www.californiansforromney.com/?p=90


2. Americans deserve a hard-working president. Collectively, we Americans put a lot of faith and trust in our president. We EXPECT him/her to work really really hard. Out of the 300 million people in this country, can't we find at least one person who is ridiculously smart and unbelievably hard-working to be our president? Don't we deserve that? The last thing we need is a lazy undisciplined cigar chomper in the Oval Office. (see post above)

3. Lead by example. Think of the various bosses you've had... Did you ever have one that was lazy but expected you to work hard? Didn't that frustrate the heck out of you? Now think of a boss that leads by example - a motivator that demands a lot but also works his/her butt off... That is the way Romney will lead - by example. I can guarantee that his staff and the vast personnel within the executive branch will work harder and do a better job knowing that they will have to answer to someone as hard-working and intelligent as Governor Romney.

Why do I call Fred Thompson lazy?

Lazy Freddie Thompson?
One of the knocks against former Senator Fred Thompson thus far in his pre-launched campaign has been that he’s lazy. Washington Monthly magazine says that “his most famous quality is his laziness.” The New Republic has given Thompson the nickname “Lazy Boy”. The Wall Street Journal’s Opinion Journal says, “he had a reputation for being a little lazy.” New York Magazine wrote that “Thompson developed a reputation for being lazy.”

This issue has risen to the forefront again when Thompson told Politico that if he ran, he would rely on technology and on large events so that he could “avoid some of the slogging through the snow in Iowa and New Hampshire that is normally required of White House hopefuls.”

Well, now Jonathan Martin, GOP blogger at the Politico, adds a little more fuel to the fire. He

links to a reporter in the Tennessean who got a hold of a copy of Thompson’s high school yearbook (where he is known as “Freddie”), which may further show his penchant for laziness:
What’s notable from the piece is that the same knock on Thompson now — he’s lazy — is apparently nothing new. Says the high school football coach of the the class clown and lineman at Lawrence County High (Class of ‘60): “He probably could have been a straight-A student if he’d applied himself.”

And Thompson himself appears to admit his penchant for procrastination in his senior yearbook quote: “The lazier a man is, the more he plans to do tomorrow.”
Fair or not, this is a meme that the former Senator is going to have to deal with when he decides to enter the race.

I agree with you 100 percent, HeavyM.

What we DON'T need is a guy that really doesn't want to run for president to become our standard-bearer for the Republican party AND the Conservative movement.

Fred Thompson needs to realise that it is NOT about him, but instead is about the survival of the next generation in our struggle against Islamofascism. It is about our children's future.

We don't need another Bob Dole to lose an election for us, but rather a very smart, EAGER visionary who is HARD-WORKING and able to last EIGHT years in office.

What we need is Mitt Romney!

Go MITT Go!

HeavyM is one of my friends. We obviously don't agree on Presidential candidates, but have good natured ribbing between us. So don't take my comments personally.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
