Video: Fred! on the economy

posted at 10:22 am on December 2, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Fred Thompson gives us a dose of common sense about the economy and the government action to rescue it. It’s a masterpiece of sarcasm and wit, and almost impossible to excerpt. Like most Fred! videos, it’s an instant classic:

“Ask not what your country can spend for you … as what you can spend for your country.”

Of course, this does raise a question about Thompson’s intentions for the future.  He’s talked about going back to his Hollywood career, but this video shows that Thompson still has some passion for politics.  Is he looking to get drafted into something, or will he be content to provide ideological and philosophical lift for conservatives?
