Thompson: Not Good Enough
November 29, 2007 at 8:45AM
The reviews are coming in, and no one seems to think Fred Thompson did much in last night's CNN/YouTube debate to help his struggling campaign.Thompson launched the campaign's first attack ad during the debate, slapping Mike Huckabee on taxes and Mitt Romney on abortion.But as the Washington Post points out, Thompson passed on the opportunity to hammer home his point: "As has happened time and again in this campaign, Thompson, himself, seemed less willing than his own campaign to throw punches. When asked about the video, Thompson said simply: 'These are their words.'"No one took the trouble to attack Thompson.
