Finally, Reuters comes out with a well balanced and thought provoking article on Fred Thompson. I’ve added emphasis to what I call ‘action words’ in the article, to make it extra energetic; just like Fred!
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (Reuters) – For Republican Fred Thompson, the former actor turned reluctant politician, the first few months of his floundering bid to be U.S. president were just a warm-up act. Now it is showtime.
After a late start, poor reviews for a lackluster campaign and a slide in opinion polls sending him behind several rivals, he says he is ready to make his move in Iowa.
Can you feel it? Are you as jazzed as I am right now?
But wait! The ‘action word’ bag isn’t quite empty yet! Let’s dig a little deeper and see what else we can pull out of there, shall we?
Thompson has been falling in polls since his delayed entry in September and a series of campaign-trail gaffes. He has been criticized for spending too little time campaigning. Some days, his entire schedule consists of a few call-in radio shows. But a strong showing in Iowa after months of neglect could give Thompson new momentum.
Yep, here we go…Fred! is really starting to get some traction in the MSM, a few more stories like this should vault him right to the top in Iowa.
Hey…well would you look at that? I seem to have bitten my own tongue off.
