Fred! On The Economy
Fred Thompson is still one of my favorites. He did not come close to getting the nomination because, perhaps, he made too much common sense. As we know, "Common sense is not very common." This clip is another masterpiece of his wit that is heavily peppered with wonderful sarcasm. The clip runs over 8 minutes and you have to wait until the end for the wonderful line, "Ask not what your country can spend for you … as what you can spend for your country.” If you don't have the time for the full clip, watch a couple of minutes to get a Fred! fix of reality.
