    HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) – A woman screaming “you’re not a real conservative, sir” was removed by police from a welcoming reception for likely GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson Wednesday morning. A second protester was also taken from the room.

    Houston police officers escorted the woman — as well as a man — from the hangar at Hobby Airport, where Thompson was shaking hands with a crowd of supporters. They were not arrested.

    The woman questioned Thompson as he talked to reporters. She asked him why he was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and noted that the organization supported the North American Union with Canada and Mexico.

    After the woman interrupted Thompson by questioning his conservative credentials, the likely candidate said, “Don’t fuss at me. You asked me a question. Let me answer it.” He told the woman, “I try to learn as much as I can from all viewpoints.”

    Later, she shouted at Thompson as the news conference ended. Police officers took her outside a fenced area near the hangar, and stood with her until the former Tennessee senator departed.

    People need to realize that he is not a true Conservative. I don't understand why people like him so much. He lobbied for an Pro Abortion group and many other Liberal stances. I think the reason everyone likes him is his Law And Order role. Personally I can't see why there is so much hype over this guy.

    HOUSTON (CNN) – Republican Fred Thompson, still mulling a run for the White House, said Wednesday that recent campaign staff changes are simply part of the process.

    “These are the kinds of things you do as you go along,” Thompson told reporters at Hobby Airport in Houston. “You make adjustments as you go along. We’re on track in that regard.”

    Veteran GOP campaign adviser Tom Collamore resigned from his position at Friends of Fred Thompson on Tuesday. Thompson’s campaign announced that Spencer Abraham, former U.S. Energy Secretary and Michigan GOP senator, would come aboard as a top adviser, along with veteran Florida GOP strategist Randy Enright.

    Thompson, clutching a state-appropriate cowboy hat as he addressed a group of supporters in the Lone Star State, said a decision to run would be made and announced “in the not-so-distant future.”

    “It’s a matter of raising some money, and it’s a matter of getting your organization and your people together,” he said.

    He was a lobbyist, they lobby, thats what they do. meanwhile the other so called conservatives are not mentioned by you at all I notice.

    I support Thompson and hope he runs and wins.

    Thompson won't win and if for some reason he slides by and get's on the ballot i'd vote none of the above. The reason I didn't talk about anyone else is because there is noone as bad as he is other then McCain and Paul.

    He is the only one that has the best chance at winning and is not a Liberal pretending to be a republican.

    This woman is probably:

    • A 9/11 Troofer
    • A Ron Paul supporter
    • A colloidal silver user (she makes it electrolytically in her garage, of course)
    • Against the federal reserve and paper money

    Yes, we have our own Moonbats on the right as well. Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, FEMA death camps, Bohemian Grove, North American Union, blah blah blah.

    This is why I can't support Ron Paul - he's a good guy, his supporters are fucked in the head.

    What's with you and this topless story?

    Thompson is a bloody Liberal masquerading as a Conservative.

    You're nuts. He is actually the most true conservative of ANY GOP candidate with his hat in the ring.
