This morning's audio interview with Duncan Hunter on Laura Ingraham
Part One up on YouTube---Part Two up shortly...
Thank you WS
Thanks... Hunter’s spot-on!
I like this guy. Does he have any chance of winning?
I know too, that this sounds silly, but just about every successful presidental candidate has a great smile.
Therefore, Fred Thompson and Hillary stike out and let’s face it, Obama has good one. (REagan had the best.)
Duncan needs to open up and show his pearly whites otherwise he comes on too hateful. Seems like I haven’t seen his smile.
Speaking of Laura Ingraham, did anybody else happen to catch a cameo of her on the 24 finale last night....or was I imagining things?
Awesome interview! Thank you for posting!
Yes, he has every chance of winning! You answered your own question when you said you like this guy. I have read many posts from people that say they personally like Duncan but don’t think he can be elected. It’s time for those folks to jump on the Hunter bandwagon. It’s time to abandon all the pretenders(RINOS) with the nice smiles,but wrong on the issues and get on board with a serious(not hateful) candidate who is truly right on the issues!
There is serious work to be done and we need a serious man for president. Laura Ingraham seems to be pretty high on Duncan Hunter and lots more are warming to him every day.
He doesn’t exactly get facetime in the media! That’s a big problem. However when you hear him on these interviews, many times he laughs and shows a sense of humor.
What man wouldn't smile after a successful hunt :)
You are absolutely right! Duncan does have a great smile, it’s just when he is addressing serious issues he treats them very seriously, as he should!
If we can convince the CTSH's to talk up Duncan Hunter (like Laura Ingraham has recently done) then I believe this is the quickest way to elevate his position in the polls and make him more visible to the voting masses.
I remember 1980 so well. Everybody in the media and many in government were saying Reagan was "too extreme" to get elected. Then he won by a landslide. Twice.
What is Hunter's position on what to do about those who are already here?
Does he have a position on that?
Does he have a plan?
And why does he keep repeating his "12 million" figure?
At this point, that number seems to be ridiculously low.
Like any republican (except those like McCain, Specter, etc.), if Hunter doesn’t smile, he’s mean-spirited. If he does smile, he’s got no “gravitas.” A man like Hunter just can’t win with the media, no matter what he does. So he may as well just be himself.
Reagan won partly because of Jimmy Carters total ineptness, but he mainly won because his stand on the issues appealed to many voters including me. I was a democrat up to that time! Reagan sold me on conservativism, Hunter is an extension of Reagan, IMHO!
Once again you’ve aced it, Walter! Many thanks. And many thanks to Laura Ingraham for giving Rep. Hunter all the time he needed to get his points across. God bless.
He is against amnesty so I take that to mean they will remain criminals. I think his stand on closing the borders to stem the tide of illegals coming across the border is the right first thing to do. There are illegals being arrested every day and deported. We have had raids and arrests here in N.D. so I know it is going on. This is an ongoing battle just like the WOT.
Rep. Hunter was on Larry King last night. He was one of a panel discussing the illegal immigration bill. Of all the people there, Larry King managed to continually interrupt Rep.Hunter, calling him Duncan most of the time, while addressing the junior Congressman as Congressman always. I don’t recall it being said that Rep. Hunter was running for President, but I could have missed it. I understand King regularly runs over Conservatives as a hobby.
At any rate, they stayed on subject the entire hour. Always the gentleman, but Rep. Hunter did insist on having his say, so hooray for him! He’s not one to roll over. We need a leader who will stand to fight!
GO DUNCAN HUNTER!
What is Hunter's plan to deport all the illegals?
Where does he get the 12 million figure?
Also -- if, as Hunter suggests, all segments of the border fence can be built simultaneously by multiple contractors each completing a segment, then why can't border security and deportation of illegal aliens both be done simultaneously?
I didn’t answere those question because I don’t have those answers. You need to direct those questions to the Hunter campaign. I just believe that if he is right about those things he has talked about that he is likely to be right about the issues he hasn’t covered yet. As far as the 12 million figure, I have seen numbers anywhere from 10 to 20 million. No one has any idea how many illegals are here.
Sam Hunter posts here to answere questions, maybe we could get him to answer your questions.
Me too. And it was the cross-over issue of national security being foremost that got the "Reagan Democrats". And to which Duncan Hunter has proven he is an effective campaigner for.
He can do it. If we just get the rest of the Reagan coalition to recall itself to its "right mind."
It's dangerous to assume we know any politician's position or plan on an issue when he hasn't stated it.
The figures I have seen range from 10 million to 40 million, with "consensus" forming around 20 million.
When Sam Hunter is running for president, I'll ask him about these issues. Until then, I'll ask Duncan Hunter.
And if his answer is vague or evasive, I will know his position anyway.
Its rather apparent. He obviously knows that its more like 20-30 million already. He is just using the Liberals and RINOs own admitted numbers so that he can focus on the real issues of policy difference
Emphasizing the dispute over the actual scope of the millions of invaders distracts from the short sound-bite of time he has to get his points on policy out.
In other words...Duncan is being an effective campaigner.
Something the RINOs try and deny.
With dial-up, I don’t get You-Tube too well, but I will be listening to Laura Ingraham’s radio replay of this morning’s show on WABC tonight, between 10 PM - 1 AM.
Anybody who has dial-up, and would like to listen, you can also listen to WABC radio online, if you can’t get it on your radio.
Okay, so who represents your view on that issue? and what is your ideas for solving the illegals presently here?
Get rid of that dial up as fast as you can. You wouldn’t believe how much faster dsl is over dial up!
..got to get El Rushbo in the DH camp...
I hope you are blessed with broadband in the very near future...
I suppose it's as plausible as any other.
I think Hunter would be a good candidate, BUT the MSM isn’t going to give him the time of day. He can’t get enough exposure on conservative talk radio to make him recognizable to the masses. Fred Thompson is already recognizable and also an excellent choice. We can’t win unless we nominate someone who is able to sway the American people in spite of the Gregorys, Blitzers, Russerts and the rest of their ilk.
Since I don’t have cable, dial-up might be the only thing that’s available to me.
“Besides donating to his presidential campaign and talking him up to friends and family, if each of us Hunter supporters would identify one local conservative talk show host (CTSH) that broadcasts in our home area ..”
I contacted Hannity’s producer, and FoxNews, and received a reply from Hannity’s, and Hunter was on Hanity’s at least twice, including yesterday.
They are listening to us.
“I think Hunter would be a good candidate, BUT the MSM isnt going to give him the time of day. ..”
When Duncan Hunter wins the GOP primaries, even MSM will have to give him coverage.
Please vote for him in the PRIMARIES, and tell your CONSERVATIVE friends.
There is also DSL extreme LINK which is cheaper.
Thanks a lot. I’ll check it out.
So far? Nobody.
But it's a long way to the primaries.
"and what is your ideas for solving the illegals presently here?"
First, beef up border security by following Duncan Hunter's idea of having multiple contractors building the fence in simultaneous segments. But shorten Hunter's time frame of 6 months, down to 3 months. Reinforce the border patrol with 20,000 troops with shoot-to-kill orders.
Then find them all -- start looking where they are concentrated, eg. corporate agriculture, construction, food processing plants, restaurant and hotel chains. Make the biggest raids first, then follow with sweeps of smaller businesses, street corner casual labor sites, etc.
Arrest them all, including their supervisors, employers and corporate officers. Charge them with every violation for which a strong case can be made -- immigration, labor, tax, etc. Impose gigantic fines on those businesses, fines that cut deeply and painfully into profits. Let these corporate officers plea bargain, but only for reduced sentences (they will all serve time) and reduced fines (still painful but not insignificant).
Immediately process and deport all arrested illegals. If Mexico and other countries of origin won't accept them, then shoot them, load the bodies onto catapaults at the Rio Grande and air-drop them into Mexico.
Those illegals who turn themselves in will be given consideration for re-location to whatever country will accept them, starting with their countries of origin. If no such country is found, they can survive if they accept imprisonment at hard labor. Otherwise, they will die.
These policies will apply to all illegals without respect to age, sex or special pleadings of any kind.
You must live in a rural area. You can get satelite link up through Direct TV. I get my dsl through my phone company, but I also have direct tv and they are always advertising their services. I have no idea how much it costs, tho. I used to have dial up but my son insisted on dsl so he could play all his online war games. I guess dial up was too slow for that. I used to get so irritated that we would get disconnected right in the middle of something and sometimes you couldn’t even get logged on. Well, good luck to you! :)
..I understand, and I also see what the media and the GOP establishment are doing--but at this point, I will respectfully disagree.
This campaign will test the thesis that this will truly be an "information age" race, where the rules and methods of the old paradigm will not apply...
Ann Coulter likes him too. I think he’s by far the best candidate out there.
I assure you I will IF Fred doesn’t run. I will wait to see the coverage He or any other conservative gets. I expect it will be along the same lines that Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and John Bolton get.
We looked into getting a dish, but it would be very expensive, because first we would have to cut down trees.
I upgraded my dial-up and it’s not that slow, but I can’t use You-Tube very well.
I certainly hope you are right. I am afraid most of us on FR and other conservative websites think most voters are informed. I think the majority of voters get their news from the dinasours.
“Does he have any chance of winning?” Well, that depends on you and us does it not? Send him some money if you can and you will feel better for it.If you are a conservative, Hunter is your guy.Good luck
LOL! I have advocated a death penalty for illegal aliens, myself. Give them till Jan 1,2008 to get their asses out of the country and arrest and prosecute those remaining. I also like the shoot to kill on the border, but I would offer a bounty on their heads so average citizens can pick up some extra cash.lol! I also would change the terminology from illegal alien to foreign invaders. and assume that everyone crossing illegally is a potential terrorist.
However, no presidential candidate could ever endorse these plans because a few people might consider this too extreme!!lol!!
I do think that building the fence would be an excellent place to start. Right now, anyone being deported can turn right around and come straight back across the border. They have nothing to lose but their life. That is why I suggest that their lives be put on the line.
Oh and BTW, You forgot to mention along with gender and age, sexual orientation! We wouldn’t want to discriminate against gays, would we?
How much coverage did Ronald Reagan, Bush 41 and Bush 43 get?
Regardless of the answer, they won.
We need a positive attitude, sweetie.
