All right this is a Fox News -- just hours from now former senator Fred Thompson is going to address the conservative party of New York.
And guess is the target of his speech will be not Democrats but in his words Republicans acting like Democrats.
Is that -- dad that -- Rudy Giuliani presently the front runner in national polls let's ask Fred Thompson Republican presidential candidate continues this exclusive chat.
With me and it's really that the moment of his weakened and a month and year.
On our senator.
What about that is -- Giuliani a fundamental Fox News analyst yes it will be many more I'm sure -- missile is he is he the guy you're targeting when you say.
I believe the conservatives beat liberals only when we challenge their outdated positions on -- -- them.
This is not a time for philosophical flexibility it's time to stand up for what we believe.
Yeah well not support.
-- I've been taken for some time.
Some think that two of us would be the Democrats is to be more like them.
In many respects -- what -- he's done or said that makes him more elected Democrat I don't think I don't think that.
The mayors ever claim to be observed.
He -- receive the Liberal Party nomination.
The Liberal Party.
Put out -- press release of the times as he thinks that we knew who -- who we do listed a whole host of issues.
Democratic gubernatorial nominee -- Oklahoma and then when Pataki was elected opposed -- to use tax.
Carts that is income tax cuts so I don't know these are reportedly living as -- just a philosophical difference as to how best to win next November.
Some people think that is moving more toward them in some respects is the way to do that and take that little ground.
I think that another pattern will be more successful than that is being strong for conservative principles from the -- -- -- -- Consistent conservative he's been out there for eight years on the national level.
Supporting tax increases supporting them -- budget well Paris.
Cuts I'm sorry -- -- in prison now I don't know that I -- Garnett and where -- tax tax opposing faction representative.
And supporting welfare reform and conservative judges all of which.
We were able to have to get done it except none of conservative judges so -- I don't think as mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani was a conservative so.
No I think he did some some things that we were laudable opens and a question about it I think we have to have the crime situation -- -- was a laudable.
Approach that it took.
I think for the aftermath of nine elevenths America you know we applaud -- -- -- no question but that what we're talking about.
The future security and future prosperity of our country what's going to bring about prosperity.
And or -- view -- unity of the American people.
How are we gonna come together.
You know back and MBA it is.
We have an approach that you take strong conservative.
Solid principles and they serve as a magnet.
For an awful lot of people.
Some people were -- Reagan Democrats.
Towards a political labels track everybody said the time you know that it would never -- the discounted him when he first to have started out.
But I think he establishes not only his.
Personality and charisma and so forth -- an established principle that that's the way.
To get elected and be successful so.
I think that those -- have just stood for disagreement as to how best to succeed in November and it's important.
That we succeeded.
In November because what I -- From Hillary is basically a siren song that we -- of the keys to our own treasury we don't have to worry about future generations.
5% of the taxpayers paying over half the income taxes my bill -- -- -- for -- -- certain percent you know class warfare deal.
If -- only bring our troops home all the bad gas will go away and everything will be safe and we can kind of settle in to Saturday.
Complacent comfortable mediocrity.
In the United States.
In my opinion would go down -- the path of he is saying that the government has the means through which you kind of level playing field you're saying quite the it's.
You know we live in the country to country I grew up -- and nothing was -- little -- where a person can work hard play by the rules.
Can expect him to have a fair chance -- living the American green mixtures treated fairly under the rule -- treated equally.
That if -- needs help.
He gets hurt but defeat him.
Take care of them whose own responsibilities is expected to do so that's the kind of country we.
A little bit and then -- and that helps everybody when we do that you know companies.
Hire people you know.
If it's it's not just.
Individuals out there and we have to look you know the economy across the board in all segments in all aspects -- we have -- has corporate tax rate second highest in the industrialized world that hurts the working man and moment.
Makes us less competitive.
Across the board so all those things have to be addressed those are fundamental issues that we're going to be addressing in the election.
Next November in the real question is where do you think the American people -- I -- they tell us and you tend to Hillary RN and money for.
Talking about those things those those principles those first principles I think that made a successful.
Vote lower taxes.
Free and fair competition among people -- -- of the nation's.
The American people accepted that in 1994 we took the congress I don't think the American people -- -- -- month.
All right we'll see.
