Fred Thompson Calls My Views Outdated

OK, Fred was attacking Rudy Giuliani with this argument:

I believe that conservatives beat liberals only when we challenge their outdated positions, not embrace them. This is not a time for philosophical flexibility, it is a time to stand up for what we believe in

Well Fred – what do you fellows believe in? Let’s read further:

He touts his eight-year Senate tenure and boasts of working to further the conservative causes of smaller government, lower taxes, less regulation and conservative judges.

Smaller government and lower taxes? This sounds like the usual sound bite from Rudy McRomney. All four of them are talking about more defense spending paid for by tax cuts. I guess it’s come to this – the long-run government budget constraint is an outdated position. Seriously – are these four clowns running for President or the Stupidest Man Alive Contest?
