Duncan Hunter Offers a Return to Reaganism
News Which Cannot Lose blog ^ | 11-9-07 | Alexander J. Madison

Posted on 11/09/2007 3:51:56 PM PST by WalterSkinner

[snip]

There is only one candidate vying for the 2008 presidency who will do all of these things and much more. His name is Duncan Hunter - California Congressman from the 52nd District. He is not only fearless, disdainful of politically correct niceties, a constitutionalist, a social conservative to the core, and defense hawk’s hawk, he also has a long record to match his conservative rhetoric.

No other candidate in the race for the GOP nomination even comes close. [snip]

Hunter has ALWAYS been a conservative, so we know he’s sincere.

People have to stop trying to be Reagan.

There is only ONE Reagan.

They need to be themselves and stop referencing Reagan.

The only rock-ribbed conservative in the race. B4DH.

Here’s a very recent poll showing Hunter at 4%.

http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/view/28889/republicans_2008_giuliani_28_thompson_19

Here’s an intrade link to the forum site discussing how Hunter might be gaining traction.
http://bb.intrade.com/intradeForum/posts/list/1797.page

Here’s one showing Fred at 6%, and discussing why.

FYI Lou Dobbs is on now, the 7pm hour. The earlier post told us Beck was on at 7 and at 9. Disappointed, I left to come in and check here.

Just caught Mr. Hunter on Glenn Beck. My husband, the politically clueless & apathetic, watches Beck all the time for some reason. He also controls the remote in our house, LOL!

Thanks, Glenn Beck, for having the courage to put a real conservative on your show.

Maybe a few of the lemmings will follow your lead.

I’m not sure you read the editorial. It is a historic overview since Reagan was President. Reagan’s era was called Reaganism.

Excellent.

The Glenn Beck interview was also perfect yesterday evening.

On Glenn Beck: Excellent delivery.

I am glad he could reach millions of NEW PEOPLE this way, people starting to think, "hey, I kinda' like this guy Duncan Hunter".

The word will spread. I think it is good he has not peaked but is moving up in a crowded field.

I think EVERYTHING should be done to get him up to and over 5% in national polls.

There are several weeks to do it in which this could be done.

Then, pressure the Iowa Republican Party to include him in the debates, the 5% is their arbitary lower limit to be included.

Once in, I think it will really take off from that point.

Duncan Hunter indeed did an EXCELLENT job on Beck.

Lots of specifics.

No BS, no waffling, very clear message, not just vague platitudes, and not a single incidence of "Lazyness".

Self deprecating.

I thought his comparision of his Vietnam service to his son's Iraq service was TOP CLASS.

Where did this guy come from. WOW!!

This Hunter is energized and energizing. He can ENERGIZE THE BASE!

He would absolutely clean Hilary's clock!!

..I had a lot of trouble, was afraid I wasn't going to be able to process the video--but we figured it out.

BTW, the reason that it took so long for uploading the segments, is that I had to re-process each one or else it would have looked like a green laser light show. Secondly, I have the slowest DSL available (economic reasons).

WE, had a VERY good day yesterday (if you catch my drift).

What do you think about the troops e-mailing Glenn Beck and thanking him?

BTW,my response from GB:

Thanks so much for the email. Due to the volume of mail this may be the only response you see.

While I do not always see it in a timely fashion I do try to read all of my mail. However, I average over 1000 letters a day and there is no way I can respond to most letters.

I am glad you are listening and even though you may not see a response, I want you to know that I am listening as well.

Thanks,
Glenn Beck
