Fred Thompson: No Woman Will Be President of America

Posted on 1/3/2008 1:48:00 PM

Fred Thompson does not think there is a woman is capable of being the President of the United States, at least not yet. The former Tennessee senator made the remark while addressing a small group in Iowa. Even though Thompson took no names, there is no doubt that his comment was aimed at leading Democratic candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Thompson defied caucus goers to opt for the best man who could help prevent the Democratic party, which he said was 'salivating' to turn the country into a welfare state, from coming to power. "Who are we going to set on the road — what man are we going to set on the road — to lead us and to stand against this assault?" Thompson asked, stressing on the word man. "I say the word man advisedly. Now I've got a daughter that's going to be president some day, I know it, and I am all for a woman president, just not this year, not next year, "he continued." However, he said, "There is no woman on the horizon that ought to be president next year, let's all agree on that."

Throughout the speech, Thompson persisted in referring to the next president as a man. He should represent conservative principles and values, he said, and should be examined "by what he believes and by where he's been and what he's done".

Thompson indicated that his record showed he was right to be that man. He asserted that if elected, he would apply a flat income tax, and rescue Social Security from inevitable bankruptcy. He also said he would rebuild the military and put an end to illegal immigration.

Responding to a question on abortion, Thompson said that he believed that, rather than a federal ban, the states should be allowed to decide the issue. Using a football analogy to explain his point, he said, " I'm talking about doing something that can get done."
