Tommy Thompson: A Week Late and $350 dollars short!

http://cognidissidence.blogspot.com/2012/07/tommy-thompson-week-late-and-350.html?cid=dlvr.it

Well known manure farmer Tommy Thompson gave a speech recently where he attempted to show his credentials as a serious politician who wants to be your Senator. Unfortunately for Tommy all he did was show why he needs to just go away, His failed attempts at coming out of retirement make Wisconsinites yearn for Bret Favre. Tommy while speaking of his "leadership" skills, tells us of his leadership skills after 9/18. Yes he got the date wrong of THE defining event of our lifetime(one of which he was part of the administration in charge). It has to be heard to be believed! (see vid)

...of course whats even worse than Tommy messing up the date is his campaign failed and feeble attempt to explain this flub.


"There are two plausible explanations as to the recent 9/18 versus 9/11 reference made by Tommy Thompson at a recent event," said campaign spokesman Brian Nemoir. "First, the entire civilized world has the wrong date of this historic and tragic attack on our nation's soil; second, during a spirited campaign appearance Tommy Thompson misspoke regarding an horrific episode in our country’s history during which he played a key leadership role. The campaign is fully examining both scenarios."

He declined to answer a follow-up question on whether that meant Thompson had misspoken.

Tommy can't even be honest when he mis speaks and he thinks the people of Wisconsin will not notice or hold him accountable?

Hovde has the looks and the money to beat Baldwin.

And as we have seen how stupid the voters of this state are at times that would be all it takes.

4. You have a point.

Johnson proved you don't even have to have looks (other than smarmy) to buy yourself a senate seat in the state of WI.

5. Nice work

Check again, September 18th was the anthrax scare--but hey, that hardly fits your narrative.
