It's time to step up, Fred. Conservatives need a leader about whom we have no major reservations. The only one looming out there about you is your failure, so far, to persuade voters you want the job.Maybe this is Rush backdoor way of endorsing Fred Thompson. Rush said many times he does not endorse anybody at the primary and he probably do not want to break his own rule. Maybe Fred Thompson's plan is like Tiger Woods game plan to win - practice, practice, practice - deliberate, well thought out practice plan.
That said, he needs to make a more convincing case to the voters, which will require a greater display of enthusiasm that he views these as both perilous and promising times and that he is the best man, overall, to navigate the ship of state through these times.
So, Fred, please, as distasteful as it may be to you, it's time to step up and prove you want it. Time is short.
