Sooner Thought Wrong (as usual)
He also continually touts his "civil discourse" which he demonstrates here...
"They sure as shit aren't writing pieces like this about the Duncan Hunters and Tom Tancredos of the world...(note: emphasis in this article mine)--Editor
(with apologies for that 4letter word appearing on this blog)
Maybe I can help him out here, since my google button seems to work okay.
From National Review online Dec 12 2007
"Can we all agree that Duncan Hunter is going to be Secretary of Defense in the next Republican administration?"
From Californians for Romney... Their "Dream Team"
"A Vietnam veteran and Army Ranger, Duncan Hunter has served on the House Armed Services Committee for the last 27 years. He is also the author of the Secure Fence act, and has a son who recently returned from a couple of tours of Iraq and is U.S. Marine. No more stupid questions from the media to the Defense Secretary about "would you send your son to Fallajuh?" They would already know the answer.
If Romney is smart he will put together the best conservatives have to offer for his administration, after all as Ronald Reagan said, "Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out." Duncan Hunter fits the bill.

Why Duncan Hunter Should Be the Next VEEP...
1. Experience Points!
Duncan Hunter has served in the House of Representatives since 1980! He was Chairman of the Armed Services Committee during the first two years of the Bush Jr. presidency. Within the committee, Hunter was one of the strongest critics of a Defense Logics Agency that misspent military funds, demanding explanations for incompetence. He also has a law degree and began a storefront practice that serviced the Hispanic community, sometimes without compensation.
2. He’s a Patriot!
Every other sentence out of John McCain’s mouth refers to his Vietnam service, but little did you know… Duncan Hunter also served in South Vietnam. He recently made an innovative proposal to President Bush that suggested they recruit State Department members from Abu Ghiraib and other military hospitals, instead of their independent agency.
3. He’s a Uniter, Not a Divider!
In his home state of California, Hunter receives 60% of the Hispanic vote and 70% of the Democratic vote! In the 2006 election, Hunter beat Democrats and Libertarians alike.
4. He was ahead of his time on immigration policy!
The erection of a border security fence may sound like recent news to many, but Hunter mandated a 14-mile fence between San Diego and Tijuana back in 1994. In 2005, he cited its success and called for the extension of the fence across the entire US-Mexican border. His voting record received an “A” grade from Americans for Better Immigration.
"Why Duncan Hunter Will Be In The Cabinet"
"Duncan Hunter is congenial, motivated, competent and experienced. His legacy with the “House Armed Services committee” cannot be equaled. Our next Republican president will do well to include Duncan Hunter in their cabinet. Why settle for a second stringer with inadequate experience, when you can have a seasoned veteran like Duncan Hunter that knows all the playbook, and is a leader in the huddle?"
"1A-In the strength department was Representative Duncan Hunter. Hunter has almost solidified the Vice-President slot for himself. No other candidate on stage should even be considered as a possibility. Hunter is the man. He simply doesn’t have the charm and star power to be the nominee, but man does he have gravitas. Buckets of it. He is the Cheney of 2008, but with 55 electoral votes in his back pocket. A Giuliani/Hunter ticket might win California."
There is plenty more where these came from, but my google finger is getting tired.
I suggest Sooner Thought learn to do some thinking before typing... sooner or later maybe he will.
