I throwing my support behind Duncan Hunter for President.
Hunter’s been solid on every issue. Immigration. Tax reform. Reducing government spending. Abortion. Foreign policy. The war in Iraq. He’s got all the right messages in all the right places.
The only reason he’s not getting traction is because of name recognition. The only people who know him are people in the political know and those from San Diego. He’s had a presence in every GOP debate, but his questions have been loaded and few, and most of the time we heard from Mitt, Rudy, McCain, Huck, or Fred!. Hunter was the one who was sandbagged by Anderson Cooper and the Gay General Hillary plant. He’s been asked about China quite a bit, but nothing else of real significance, which is a shame. He has so much to say but nobody gives him a platform.
Instead we’re treated to the parade of mediocrity which is the current GOP field. McCain’s the Maverick who gave us such winning legislation as Campaign Finance Reform. Rudy the pro-choice philanderer. Mitt the flip-flopper mormon. Huckabee the liberal Christian in GOP clothing. And Fred, someone who’s been sleepwalking through the election process.
So, even though Hunter doesn’t have the name recognition, I say, give him the name recognition by NOMINATING HIM FOR THE PRESIDENCY. The GOP voters are worried about putting up a no-name against Hillary, or Barak. Well, Hunter’s the perfect foil. He’s not an empty suit (Obama), and he’s not a closet socialist (Hillary).
So, get off your duff, stop vacillating between barely-palatable top-tier candidates, and throw your primary support behind the only experienced, solid conservative in the lot- Duncan Hunter.
I can’t wait for the Wisconsin primary.
