Should Fred Thompson Rebut John Edwards' Poverty Tour Comments?
This week John Edwards is touring Appalachia to shine a light on the need to “end poverty.” His plan involves lots of government, a deadline decades away, and laudable but unachievable goals. I nominate Fred Thompson to offer the conservative rebuttal. He’s tough, smart and, most importantly, has lived in rural, poverty stricken areas. Further, Thompson's served areas in his state that are very similiar to the rural ones Edwards will visit. Thompson could offer a way whereby poverty could be reduced by less government, not more.
