Skip to comments.The Case for Duncan Hunter
Posted on 11/07/2007 10:31:17 PM PST by pissant
Conservatives ought to be frustrated and angry with the current top tier candidates for the Republican nomination. Giuliani, Thompson, and McCain all seem to be unreliable conservatives on important social and policy issues. Mitt Romney, the one seemingly reliable conservative has flip-flopped on a number of important social issues. This is exactly why the conservative movement should be looking more closely at Congressman Duncan Hunter from California's 52nd district. Congressman Hunter is a staunch supporter of winning the war against radical Islam, border security, and is friendly to religious and socially conservative voters.
Duncan Hunter has been a staunch supporter of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hunter served in Vietnam and earned a bronze star. His son, Duncan D. Hunter has served two tours of duty in Iraq. What is most admirable about Hunter's position on the war is his consistency. Unlike the entire Democratic Party and a few of his Republican colleagues, Congressman Hunter realizes that Iraq policy should not be swayed by public opinion and public pressure has not swayed his position on Iraq. Furthermore, with over two decades of service on the House Armed Services Committee, Duncan Hunter has "walked the walk" in terms of supporting the military. Republicans know the importance of stopping unfiltered illegal immigration and
Duncan Hunter has helped to defeat recent efforts to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. The congressman from California has also built a border fence between San Diego County and Tijuana, Mexico and helped write the "Secure Fence Act." Hunter silenced border fence critics by cutting crime and drug trafficking drastically with the San Diego border wall. No other Republican candidate (besides Tom Tancredo) has such a conservative and effective record on immigration.
With a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 92, Duncan Hunter has proved a reliable conservative. Hunter is also a family man with no personal baggage (i.e. Giuliani) and lots of experience in politics. With an extensive pro-life, pro-family message, Duncan Hunter can please the socially conservative wing of the Republican Party. GOP voters need to wake up and realize that this next election is pivotal to the future of the war on radical Islam. Duncan Hunter is an authentic conservative (of the Reagan mold), a hawk on defense and immigration, and would be wildly popular with conservative and evangelical voters.
The next election is first and foremost about standing up to Islamic thugs and fanatics murdering our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Electing a hawkish Republican would send a powerful message to the mullahs in Tehran. Duncan Hunter is not only electable to the GOP base but would be a boon to our efforts at defeating Al Qaeda in Iraq, Afghanistan, and across the world.
Another blogger for DH PING
Bump. Slowly but surely...
More and more people are waking up to the fact that Duncan Hunter is the only real choice for conservatives. And a really terrific choice at that!!
I firmly believe that Duncan Hunter would give us a Reagan style landslide in the elections.
We are in the starting days of our big push for DH. Look for more articles and a few more blows to the other fellers from Hunter’s backhand.
He would mop the floor with Hillary. He will energize the base like no one since Reagan.
a big Brads Gramma bump
LOL. I guess thats a good thing.
You GUESS?? :)
I sure hope so . I am for Hunter !
>>>He will energize the base like no one since Reagan.
Yes he will, but I think even more importantly, he will excite the average voters. His will become an infectious campaign that will pull in moderate to conservative Democrats and Independents, as well as energizing the base of the Republican party. Duncan Hunter is the complete package and will be a stark contrast to Hillary or anyone else the Democrats care to put up against him. Never since Ronald Reagan will there be such a contrasting election. I am jazzed!!lol
Hunter is a John Wayne in a sea of Leonardo diCaprios
For the time being, very few have heard of Duncan Hunter. But if you think about it, back in ‘91 people asked “Who’s Bill Clinton?”
Here’s hoping and praying DH becomes a household name in the coming months.
Prayers and spread the word. I have 1/2 my office on the Hunter bandwagon, my Father and Mother in law, and my drinking buddies.
Well I saw he was 4% in both Gallup and Argus this week. Movin on up, Just like the Jeffersons.
Done that and I've gotten a lot of very favorable responses.
