Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2006 | Entering the field with well established and respected credentials for supporting the military, being strong on national security and combating illegal action, Duncan Hunter makes for a qualified candidate to lead our country. Even in consideration of his lack of name recognition beyond San Diego and Washington, D.C., Hunter has a formidable opportunity to win over the support of much of the nation, and he’s got two years to do it.
In comparison to the current other GOP hopefuls, Hunter has the best chance to garner the same voter blocks that historically turned out for Bush in past elections. Amongst those, the Christian conservatives, security moms, business owners and those who support a pragmatic lens for policy making. Furthermore, riding on the historical coat-tails of Regan, the slowly rising support of Bush in the polls and expected success of the Schwarzenegger/McClintock ticket this coming Tuesday, Hunter has the potential to put California back in to play for the national election.
The United States needs a president who can lead our country in a time of war, sustain the international development and conflict resolution efforts of the United States and protect the interests of the American people. Of those GOP hopefuls, Duncan is the most qualified…and certainly much more so than Hillary or Barack Obama could ever be.
