That weirdo Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-nuts) thinks he can be President.

:eyes:

Man that would be a hard choice for me, I usually vote for all the Democrats, but you know Duncan Hunter seems like such a good candidate for President. This will be hard folks.

:sarcasm:

What motivates people like this to run? He's worse than Barry Goldwater. If they do by some chance pick this maniac to be President, I think the phrase, "In your guts you know he's nuts," will return.

He is just out there in wacky-woohoo land. Read this from Wikipedia:

"On April 28, 2004, Hunter introduced legislation that he said could turn parents into prosecuting attorneys fighting a wave of obscenity. <3> House Bill 4239, also called the "Parents Empowerment Act," <4>, would allow the parent or guardian of a minor to sue in federal court anyone who knowingly disseminates any media (such as a comic book) containing "material that is harmful to minors" if the material is distributed in a way that "a reasonable person can expect a substantial number of minors to be exposed to the material and the minor, as a result to exposure to the material, is likely to suffer personal or emotional injury or injury to mental or moral welfare." <5>

In November 2004, Hunter and Wisconsin Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner blocked a bill that would have created a National Intelligence Director (NID). Creating a NID was a key recommendation of the 9/11 Commission. Hunter argued that the military is the biggest consumer of intelligence and any reforms enacted must not endanger the lives of troops on the battlefield.

On November 3, 2005, Hunter introduced legislation calling for the construction of a reinforced fence along the entire United StatesMexican border, and a border zone on the American side of 100 meters.

On November 18th, 2005, in response to Pennsylvania congressman John Murtha's call for a partial withdrawal and redeployment of American troops in Iraq, Hunter and other Republicans drafted a two-sentence resolution which read:

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the deployment of United States forces in Iraq be terminated immediately.

Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the deployment of United States forces in Iraq be terminated immediately.

Democrats condemned the bill as a political stunt; they made much of the fact that Hunter himself didn't support his own resolution. It was heavily defeated, 403-3, in the House of Representatives.

On the issue of trade, Hunter is a fair trader, repeatedly voting against international trade agreements such as CAFTA and the WTO.<6> In the 109th Congress, he also voted for higher spending in the Transportation Bill and voted against the Republican Study Committee's conservative alternative 2005 budget."

1. One good thing about him at least: he believes in fair trade
If the American people can be given a choice between two fair traders in 2008, that can only be a good thing.

3. The only good thing I can say about Duncan
Is that his Son is serving in the military. One of the few Congressmen.
