Duncan Hunter is one of the top two candidates in the Republican race. He should be leading the pack, not trailing it trying to make up ground.

I truly wish people would get their heads out of their a$$es and think about their country and not who is in the lead according to the pole or "who can beat Hitlery".

Duncan Hunter is gaining momentum as more people realize he is the only Conservative left in the race. THere is no other option.

or "who can beat Hitlery"

Some of us feel that beating HRC is important.

Since I cannot imagine for one second that Duncan Hunter could be elected President in a two-way race with Hillary, why on earth should I consider voting for him in the NH primary?

Now, maybe I'm wrong and he could beat her, but you (and he) have to show me how that could happen.

Attacking me for thinking about "who can beat Hitlery" does nothing to help Hunter. How could it?

Duncan Hunter would make one “H” of a President. He’s a true Conservative. He’s also active in every aspect of legislation appealling to the Conservative class. He hasn’t the “STAR” power to overcome the MSM bias in which they purposely allow the man absolutely NO MEDIA attention. It’s because of their fear of this man they allow him no opportunity for exposure. If they did Hillary and the rest of the pack would be in deep stuff.

This endorsement won’t help much, but anything is better than nothing when at least a few more might become aware of this great man.

The MSM would love to be able to do the same to Fred Thompson, but Fred has the “Star” power, therefore they cannot bury him as they have Duncan Hunter.

Our money is on Fred Thompson. We hope and pray Duncan Hunter is in our future, but if he retires, it’s our loss.

In a country where John Francois Kerry and a slip-and-fall shyster won 253 electoral votes, what possible reason do you have for believing that Duncan Hunter could be elected President?

Do you care who wins in November, or only who wins the nomination?

Duncan Hunter answer the "BIBLE" Question - RE: CNN/YouTube debate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 5, 2007

CONTACT: Gary Becks (619) 334-1655

San Diego, CA – Presidential candidate and U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) took the opportunity today to respond to a question posed to candidates at the CNN-YouTube Republican Presidential debate that occurred last week that he did not have an opportunity to answer. Holding a Bible, Joseph Dearing from Dallas, Texas, asked the candidates, “Do you believe every word of this book? Specifically, this book that I am holding in my hand, do you believe this book?” Congressman Hunter has sent Mr. Dearing the following letter in answer to his question:

December 3, 2007

Dear Mr. Dearing:

At last week’s CNN-You Tube debate, you asked the question of all of us “Do you believe in every word of this book?” meaning the Bible. As you know, the moderator called on my fellow candidates Governor Romney, Mayor Giuliani and Governor Huckabee to answer, but I myself was not given an opportunity. Allow me to respond directly to your question now. Do I believe every word of the Bible? Yes, by faith.

I find the center of the Bible to be these words: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life,” John 3:16. If you believe in this promise, which so obviously is not scientifically provable, then is there any other event in the Bible that God’s hand cannot accomplish?

On June 28, 1787, at the Constitution Convention when the delegates appeared to be hopelessly deadlocked, old Ben Franklin made a speech, the central sentence being the following: “The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?”

Following this statement, Franklin made a request resulting in the delegates approving a motion by James Madison to open every session with a prayer. The U.S. Constitution was thus born and this document, which delivers to every American the freedoms we enjoy, was produced by men of great faith and who very strongly believed in the Bible. Our further freedoms have been defended by American soldiers, 619,000 of whom were killed in battle during the last century, and a vast majority I feel believed the Bible.

I am sending you a book which I hope you will find instructive and persuasive, “A Third Testament” by Malcolm Muggeridge, chronicling the lives of great intellectuals in history who became followers of Christ and who believed in the Bible.

When I am asked by those who pride themselves on the reliance on provable scientific facts regarding the validity of the scriptures, I answer with one such set of facts. There are an infinite number of atoms on the head of a pin, each of which are circled by electrons. Who placed those electrons there? I hope their attempt to answer this question helps them to understand my three-word answer to your original question. Do I believe every word of the Bible? Yes, by faith.

Thank you again Mr. Dearing for your question. Sincerely, Duncan Hunter

Maybe you can explain why you don’t think he could beat Hillary.

Personally I don’t think the democrats are even remotely prepared to beat someone like Hunter. He doesn’t struggle with answers or have a history of flip flops to explain away. He’s sure of himself and honestly believes what he says. He doesn’t reform his answers to tell each different crowd what they want to hear. While everyone else was whining about democrat sneak attacks after the CNN debate, Hunter sent a letter to Hillary telling her to send more.

He’s the type of man who would say “The poor bastards have us surrounded”.

What do you base you assumption on? The socialist media? The polls? The so called political experts thought Thomas Dewey had defeated Harry Truman in 1948 to the point of publishing it in the newspaper. These experts also were convinced Al Gore had beaten Bush in 2000 based on the always reliable exit polls. William Seward was the odds on favorite to become the nominee in the 1860 GOP convention but somehow Abraham Lincoln won the nomination and he hadn't held office for 11 years! How you can make such an assumption before one vote being cast defies logic.

Do you care who wins in November, or only who wins the nomination?

I care about a president who does not show a history of flip flopping on the issues simply to do what is politically expedient. Hunter is the only candidate who has been consistently Conservative through out his career. The other candidates have changed their positions on one or more issues to a Conservative point of view at some point in their careers. Either they are indecisive or disingenuous.

If your only test for the candidacy is, "Who can beat Hitlery", you are just like the DEMONcRAT's, "Anybody but Bush" brigade.

In selecting a leader for our country we should be deciding on who would do the best job, not who can beat Hitlery.

If our candidate CAN do the best job then beating the opposing candidate is a foregone conclusion.

My criteria for choosing a leader for our country is not based on party, race, or religon. It's based on who I think will do the best job for the country.
If I truly thought that Hitlery could do the best job for our country, guess what, I'd vote for her.

I’m not falling for anything. I’ve seen what has happened in the past. I’ve listened to FT. If he’s your candidate that’s great. Yall might want to help him get some “fire” in his belly though instead of throwing darts at people who voice real concerns.

I may be dreaming, but at least I will hold my head high and say that I voted for MY choice, a conservative, and not the MSM's choice, a RINO liberal.

There are several Republican candidates that, if they are selected, I could support.
There are several "Republican" candidates that, if selected, I will NOT support, anymore than I would support a liberal DEMONcRAT.

Until a candidate IS selected I will support Duncan Hunter as the best man for the job.

I am a Duncan Hunter supporter and I think this is a great response.

My problem is that I cannot find the letter at the official campaign website: http://gohunter08.com/

When I email items, such as this letter, to friends I usually provide a link to the source to prove authenticity.

Sounds good. B4DH.

Huckabee has surged because he won a couple of debates and he’s got evangelical support. If a quick rise can happen to the liberal pro-life evangelical Huckster, it can happen to the conservative pro-life evangelical Hunter.

According to Intrade, the winner of the December 12th GOP debate was... Duncan Hunter.

I agree with you: I like Duncan Hunter also, and he is still behind the pack.

But if everyone who likes him and thinks he would make a good president votes for him in their respective caucus or primary, perhaps he would NOT be in the back of the pack any longer!

We know the MSM is not going to give him any publicity. If enough people support him, that "bounce" would force the MSM to cover the bounce - which may lead to more coverage and votes and coverage and votes and ....

I'm not saying Duncan Hunter would win, but I am encouraging people who like his stands on the issues to vote for him in the primaries and caucuses. That's what primaries and caucuses are for.

Duncan can beat the hildabeast no doubt. His problem is that he has to run a gauntlet of doubting Thomas, no faith, front running, bandwagon jumping, principal compromising, so called "conservatives" in our own party who value fluff over substance. There are other good candidates in our primary race, but Hunter is the best choice if you truly buy into conservatism. Compromises are for after the primaries!
