Fred Thompson on Obama: I'm Concerned Most When His Real Thoughts Come Out

Former Senator Fred Thompson spoke at the Preserving American Liberty “Winning Back America” Conference in Independence, Missouri today. Thompson was asked about Obama’s income– too much. He said he is concerned most when President Obama goes off his TelePrompter and his real thoughts and feelings come out

Question from Darla Jaye, host, 980 KMBZ: How much income is too much, Fred?

Fred Thompson: What does the president make?

Darla Jaye: About five million dollars.

Fred Thompson: Whatever salary he makes, that’s too much for him… This is a guy who’s made several million dollars in the past few years. He’s done two things. He’s during his life. He’s been a community organizer and politician and he’s written two books, both about himself. In all seriousness… sometimes the president gets off script and his true thoughts and feelings come out. He really believes this. That’s what concerns me more than anything else.


Wild Thing's comment........

Fred is right to be concerned. But I also am concerned when Obama is ON scrpt, he is dangerous either way.

Yes. obama is dangerous either way. But, when he is off script people should realize what a liar he is.

He is increasingly dangerous to our nation and our way of life where ever he goes.

He believes in not just growing the public sector, but in its full dominion over all of us from cradle to grave.

It is in the free private sector that are the working producers and generators of everything, and this administration would just as well see it gone and wiped out so that everybody works for government in one huge collective of sloth, deceit, misery and life by government ration.

The President's commencement address delivered yesterday at Ann Arbor in Michigan telling our young people,
"We've clearly seen the dangers of too little government", in incredulous.

Really ?!!!

This country was built much more by risk takers in the private sector than, as this current leadership in Washington mistakenly thinks, by comfortably seated central planning bureaucrats in a growing and unsustainable public sector in a far away capital city that dangerously continues to blur the distinction between the two, when they subsist only from the tax revenues derived from a diminishing private sector.

Just look 90 miles across the Florida straits to see the future and path to collective ruin he leads. It's sad, but very true, and I trust that are many young people who see right through him.

Tom, good point that is important too.

Carlos, thanks so much. I agree all we have to do is look 90 miles from Florida straits at what our future could be.
