(Newser) – Former presidential hopeful Fred Thompson today joined the chorus of Republicans rooting for President Obama’s recession spending to flop. “I want his policies that I believe take us in the wrong direction to fail,” he told CNN, warning that higher inflation and interest rates loom. “I’ll do everything I can to make him succeed with regard to” reforming entitlement programs, Thompson added, “because that’s the whole ball game in terms of our fiscal future in this country.”
