I don’t believe I ever ONCE got onto a Brownback, Tancredo nor T Thompson thread because they truly had no chance. The fact that you go out of your way to try to push down a conservative candidate on this conservative website says a lot about the state of conservatism today. When Mr. Awesome Poll Results won the governatorship of Kahleeforneeya, did conservatism win? NO. Did republicanism win? I don’t care. This is a conservative website, not a GOP website. Peddle your republicanism garbage elsewhere, like GOP.com; your behavior proves that you are not a conservative.

I guess you did not bother to watch either video. Part One is all about illegal immigration, but at 3:44 in Part Two, Hunter explains his plan to fix Medicare. By reducing paperwork and ending “ancient protocols”(something I understand all too well), Hunter proposes to streamline Medicare with modern, innovative procedures. Gee, less gov’t waste, whoda thunk it?

Whoever your candidate is, you should really take the time to listen to Duncan Hunter before you criticize his numbers. In the next breath, you’ll be saying that you are a true conservative...

Sympathy to he DH fans but I have been in Nevada all week and I have heard several DH radio ads. I agree 100% with his messages but the the delivery explains why he can’t poll above half of double digits. If it were all about the best ideas and principles America could be run by a Freeper somewhere in his pajamas, but elective politics in a republic is retail sales game. You have to sell the ideas. DH has great product but he can’t sell it.

“Why do you come to these threads and do this?”

Because he/she/it can. Like a child or a liberal or illegal alien, they will get away with whatever they’re allowed to.
Unfortunately there is no law against being a jerk. Which is a good thing I suppose because occasionally I wander into that territory. But I don’t relish in it obsessively like some people do.

Right. That’s why he beat an incumbent Democrat and won his seat in the high 60% every time. That’s why every time a crowd gets to hear him, his poll numbers show it.

We don’t need your sympathy for doing the right thing. Save the sympathy for all of us when we’re stuck with another ‘compassionate conservative’ or worse.

CPAC 2007, Day 2: Duncan Hunter wow’s ‘em

Duncan Hunter is on the 2008 map. He woke up the Day 2 CPAC audience with a machine-gun like 20 minute address focused largely on the issues of our misbegotten trade policies, the war and illegal immigration. Did not try to do too much, and he did it very well.

The result was numerous standing ovations and a huge scrum outside the ballroom with press and audience members seeking additional time with the congressman.

Mike Huckabee, who spoke about an hour later, was by contrast too cerebral and tried to cover too much, and consequently received a more subdued response.

Listen to Hunter’s address here.

Would you support Hunter as the GOP nominee, lets say, if there was a moderate centrist Republican also in the race in November as an independent, running against Hunter and either Hitlery or Obama or Edwards, i.e. three way race?

By the large, in addition to being small minds, these anti-DH types that show up around here tend to be Bushbots, young, and pro-Open Borders, if one researches just deeply enough.

However, nothing can be done about it, so the best thing is just to LOVE them and counter bump every comment they make, because they have the net effect of bring Duncan Hunter threads to the top on FR and by and large we want these threads a) heavily visited and noticed, and b) running well over 100-200 replies in a day or so if possible, to further get the word out within the US Conservative movement. FR is the premiere site and is read by MILLIONs, so in a way, these trolls and naysayers and disruptors (especially the obsessive ones who show up on thread after thread with post after post) can have their negative energy directed at us actually be converts into positive, forward moving stimulus and visibility. And for me, well, that lemonaide don't taste so bad!!

We win both ways. If you treat them that way, they either leave (WIN), or they stay and keep the thread bumped to the top (WIN). We win-win, because they cannot offer anything substantial in terms of policy differences or scandal or anything that would damage Mr. Hunter, just their own handicapping of the race which anyone is free to do.

Remember the biblical quotes about loving enemies, and in so doing, bringing heaping hot coals down upon their heads.

It works!!!! LOL

Duncan Hunter can’t sell to you because apparently you want things all wrapped up in shiny paper. You ignore the message because the package isn’t pretty enough to suit you. Style over substance. Listen to the Message!!

I want someone with a real, solid message, who I can trust to do what he says. That is Duncan Hunter.

While you are explaining or explaining away, can you please explain what becomes of your theory when discussing such candidates as Fred Thompson and John McCain? How about Rudy and Ron Paul?

Do they have this magical delivery or will you admit you are grasping at straws? Could there perhaps be another explanation you are avoiding in order to feel good about casting your vote for someone other than the true conservative in this race? Thanks for your sympathies, but, no thanks. As I told a Romnyulan earlier, “Save your sympathies for Americans, they are going to need them”.

I’m now listening to a replay of Brien and the Judge, and a woman just called to support Duncan Hunter. Brien also seems to like Hunter.

btw, I called Brien and the Judge a couple of weeks ago about Duncan Hunter.

If anyone wishes to call them, the show is on M-F, 9 to Noon, ET.

You have to sell the ideas. DH has great product but he can’t sell it.

Well, if all you are after is a used-car-salesman-in-chief, might I direct you to the Romney camp?

Once again, with gusto:

Go eff yourself troll.

You are no doubt familiar with single digits, as that is where your IQ resides.

Contact the doctor or midwife who presided over your birth, ask 'em if they'll consider a refund to your parents.

..there's a plug-in for Mozilla Firefox called Unplug that will allow you to download .flv format files from YouTube and other sites.

Here's another option:

I knew when I made that post yesterday the the Hunterites would attack me. You guys aren’t getting the point. Duncan Hunter has sold ME without “wrapping it up in shiny paper.” But most of the electorate is not like ME, YOU or the Free Republic crowd. It does take shiny paper to win elections. Ronald Reagan knew how to wrap a message in shiny paper. Yes, you can get a bad moderate candidate and wrap him up and sell him and end up with a bad president. I don’t deny that. But you can’t sell unwrapped goods to the American people even if they are a good thing.

I would support Duncan Hunter if he was the GOP nominee against any independent or Democrat. I think he’s a great guy, but I think the day after the election I’d would feel like 1996 again.

I agree with you in that there is an art to selling ones ideas etc to the public. Not all are cut out to do that with success. It appears that both Hunter and Thompson are going to fail this cycle big time. I'm sure who will be the nominee but if things don't change rapidly it won't be either of them.

The current results from NV shows Romney blowing them away and Paul apparently coming in 2nd.


               votes

Romney		21724
McCain		 5417
Paul		 5374 	
Huckabee	 3295
Thompson	 3314 
Guiliani	 1796
Hunter		  825
Total		41745
