My first glance at this story read "Dolph Lundgren" and all I could think of was this:

And I second and third that NO! A total wimp. He’d be among the worst possible choices.

Alright, if not him, when is another conservative going to step forward? And if they don’t, what’s wrong with Lundgren?

Thumbs up, IMO. Lungren is a solid conservative. We could do a lot worse.

Bash away on ‘ol Lungren all you want, but so far he’s been the only one with the cajones to step forward and challenge Boehner.

Solid conservative sounds good, but the next leader must have the ability to be a pain in the a$$ to Nancy and then beat her to the microphone. Tough job now.

I have heard Lundgren is a RINO, so not, I’d rather have Broun or Pence, or McCotter, or Bachmann, Ron Paul, any real Conservative.

Lundgren took the RINO swan dive when he ran for governor.

No way.

Let’s see what support he picks up behind the scenes, then, if some of you are right, hopefully someone else can jump in. But if no other conservative runs, Minority Leader Lundgren may be better than what we have now.

And a lame uninspiring "moderate" with an "F" NRA rating.

Let's just say that I still have a California "assault weapons registration form" with Dan Lundgren's name on it.

That oughtta tell you all you really need to know.

No thanks. Lungren is anti-gun. He voted for the California assault weapons ban.

He turned pudgy and morphed into Karl Rove.

I didn’t know much about Lundgren, from your comments this looks less and less like an interesting development.

For ^*%$ sakes, no. Conservative good, milquetoast bad. We don't want a student council president, we want someone who'll take names and kick butt...

Forgive me if I’m hesitant to back a California Republican for ANYTHING... with FEW exceptions.. CA GOP are as Linguini Spined as NY GOPS.
I live in NY And I haven’t had a REAL Conservative to vote for since 1984!

It’s Lungren (no D!).
He’s my local rep - a good man, former AG of CA. Strong conservative and was a spearhead on the FISA legislation.

I once had the misfortune of being in the room when Lundgren did his Elvis impersonation.

Dan is solid conservative from a solidly conservative district. CA is not all lattes and wine parties.

Can you tell us more about him? His rep here isn’t very good, and you can give us more to work with. What about the anti-gun votes?

Many years ago, I was in the Placentia city hall on business as Lundgren held a press conference on “Gun Crime.” He had a couple of tables full of confiscated firearms (mostly junk) and bragged about the state/county/city efforts to “get guns off the streets.”

Back then was still AJ and ramping up for his failed run at Governor.

Lundgren is a real Catholic and therefore pro-life and pro-marriage, i.e. good on the social issues. On illegal immigration, guns, taxes...definitely more of a Rockefeller/Country Club Republican.

If the choice was between him and a sharp stick in the eye I'd have to ask...how big a stick? how sharp is it? and which eye do I have to take it in....but I'd probably still prefer him over a far left guy.

If Dan Lungren does to the national party what he did to CALGOP, we will be in the wilderness for a very long time.

His worst sins were in not giving money to people in close races because they were too conservative. Especially the governor's race that gave us Grey Davis.
