Love that straight talk and I suspect we would see a real slapdown of the media with a president Hunter in office.

The man just tells it like it is. No fear, no nuance, just pro-americanism built on a lifetime of pro-americanism. Our next president!!

Good job Walter.

Hugh’s man Mitt didn’t do so hot in Texas and Hugh was there doing his cheerleading. Can’t wait to hear his excuses.

In listening to all the candidates debates, speeches and press releases, old and new, I’ve yet to see Hunter flounder around on any subject. He is the only one.

Just the same reason I like him too.

No filler words mixed with the popular talking points.

I’m not sure which is harder to listen too. Hugh rah-rahing Mitt or Hannity doing it for Rudy.

Thanks for posting this. A welcome contrast and improvement from the style over substance pack. The man is just sound.

I'm afraid his trade position is going to turn some people off. I believe in the desirability of the ideal of free trade myself. But China's policies have nothing to do with free trade. Everything has a cost, and the security cost of not dealing with China's trade polices dwarfs any potential short run gains to consumers.

The cost of fair trade versus free trade is an investment in the long term security and economic security of our nation. Everything has a cost, including freedom and sovereignty and not all the costs are in the blood of our soldiers, sailors, marines and air force. If we ask the young people of our military to give their lives to protect us, can we not forgo a little economically for future security and freedom?

Duncan Hunter got twice as many votes as the 2nd candidate (Fred Thompson). When people hear his message, they love Hunter.

Drat! We just went from cable modem to dial-up!! (other things are more important right now!), so I can’t even begin to download! Does anybody have a transcript?

Also, I’m disappointed because somehow I got the impression that Hewitt was a Hunter supporter and I find out he supports Romney?!

Thank you, Walter. That was one interview no one should miss. As I’ve always said, Rep. Hunter has a cool head and a steady hand. No pussy-footing around the barn he, just clear and sound answers. God’s speed, Duncan Hunter!

My hope is that the same long process that produces gaffes and lackluster performances from so many candidates will boost Hunter in his getting across his message. The man speaks a simple, solid message of conviction and that plays better over time than mere image.

He tries to deny it but he’s totally a Mitt guy.

He seems pretty up front about it actually. He wrote a book pimping Mitt, so it would be pretty hard for him to deny it. I do think he's turning into kind of a hack, though. I still listen because he's got some awesome guests.

Yup, his guests are the best. I can’t cite an example about him denying it but I do remember my reaction a few times when I said to myself “c’mon Hugh, you know you’re 100% behind Mitt”.

Last night out of curiosity I did a little digging via Google. I just typed in the words “Home Depot” etc and then search within results for “Recall info”.

It’s astounding how many recalls there are out there and how many of those products are made in China. We ain’t gittin no deal.

Thanks so much for the ping for Duncan Hunter. God bless Duncan Hunter!

But Hugh Hewitt is a total rino.
