Skip to comments.Rep. Duncan Hunter on Pundit Review Radio (excellent 30 minute audio interview)

Last night we welcomed Congressman Duncan Hunter, (R-CA), to Pundit Review Radio. Rep. Hunter is one of the leading conservative candidates running for President.
Rep. Hunter was incredibly generous with his time, spending more than 30 minutes with us discussing a wide range of topics. Of course, we asked him about the anti-surge, non-binding resolution that was passed this weekend. He had some pointed criticism of his colleagues, and questioned how much they understood about the surge, from a tactical level. According to the Rep. Hunter, it is all about politics, and has little to do with the surge itself.
We also talked about immigration, as Hunter has one of the toughest stances on this issue in Congress. He spoke of the fence that runs along the San Diego border and how effective it has been. We also asked him what should be done about the Border Agents who have been thrown in jail for a dozen years for shooting a drug smuggler. We took some great calls from WRKO listeners who asked what separated Hunter from the leaders in the GOP race, like McCain, Rudy and Romney.
My favorite part of the interview was when Rep. Hunter opened up about his own family, he talked eloquently about his father and how the call to military service was passed to him, and now, on to his son. Speaking of his son, Congressman Hunter told a great story about his sons decision to join the military on 9-11, it is incredibly inspirational.
This guy is solid and deserves strong consideration for your vote for president in the Republican primaries. To learn more about his campaign, click here. We look forward to having him back on Pundit Review Radio as the campaign heats up in the coming weeks.
This interview is also available for download at iTunes and Podcast Alley.

You probably heard it live, but here is the audio saved that you can email to others. I'm listening right now.
I think Duncan Hunter is impressive in this interview (only about 15 minutes through it so far). It's the first time I've heard him in more than just a short guest appearance on cable news and/or radio.
This veteran is pulling for Duncan Hunter!
Theoretically speaking, if Giuliani is the nominee for the GOP for '08 he will have to choose someone like Duncan Hunter as VP. So far I like what I'm hearing in this interview. Duncan doesn't beat around the bush when answering questions and he is an obvious expert on military affairs.
Listen to this interview sir!
Duncan Hunter is a force phenom. Little by little, piece by piece, he is scaring the hell out of the Rudy, McCain, Romney folks.
What few people realize is that this is exactly the way GWB beat Ann Richards down here in Texas in his first Governor's race.
I can understand the idea of people saying they don't think he can win the primary. I can't understand those who say they don't think he can win in November. They prattle on about name recognition of Rudy and others. Well after the primary everyone will be talking about Duncan Hunter who slew the giants like Giuliani, McCain et. al.. No one will be able to say ANY of those names without also saying Duncan Hunter.
Freepers: Please make your vote for Duncan Hunter heard in this FR Poll. http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/poll?poll=170
Thought you might be interested in listening to this interview.
Have a great day!
Here's a tactical idea to ponder. If pulling out of Iraq would stop the violence (according to the Democrats), why don't they pull all the police out of Central Los Angeles? What the hell, maybe they think that will get rid of the gangs.
Makes sense to me. /sarc
We shall see how much pull the most conservtive wing of the party has.
VETERANS FOR HUNTER PING!!!
