Tommy Shows His Hand: Spend YOUR Money

The American Mind covered the announcement and provides a few, ah, interesting details:

Sure, he chastised Washington Republicans for losing their way trying to “spend like Democrats.” But a President Thompson wouldn’t be a Coolidge. State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen encapsulated Tommy’s political philosophy by telling the audience, “You can’t sit idle and expect great things to happen.” Tommy said he wanted to use government to help bring the American Dream to all people. That talk didn’t remain vague. Thompson called for requiring all people to buy health insurance, strengthening No Child Left Behind, praised the Medicare drug benefit as “a remarkable success,” and wants more investment in ethanol and renewable energy.

Ethanol, eh? Well, he's campaigning in Iowa.

That's our Tommy "Buy-a-Vote" in action.

Stick-It-To-'Em Tommy.

Nice to see things haven't changed. Big spending, big government Republicans are almost as bad as big spending, big government Democrats.
