I had high hopes for Fred, but the early reviews are not good.

After six months of Waiting for Thompson, the former Tennessee senator has arrived on stage. Unfortunately, Thompson's dialogue so far consists of folksy platitudes and broad pronouncements, unobjectionable yet unenlightening
"We do whatever's necessary, hitch up our britches and come out the other end," Thompson said during a campaign rally in Iowa. He was talking national security, but, hey, a little britch-hitching can't hurt, whatever the issue.
Fred needs to bring out the substance. Fast. He also irritated too many people with his ridiculous announcement dance.
