Jack Hunter quits

Jack Hunter, the aide to Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul who has been under fire for comments critical of Abraham Lincoln and sympathetic to the Confederacy, has left the senator’s office to resume his career as a political pundit.

Hunter told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he wanted to avoid being a distraction for Paul and to clear his own name, which he argues is now unfairly associated with racism.

no matter what was said about

no matter what was said about Jack Hunter, I think Karma got the best of him. He has repeatedly attacked groups like WeAreChange and others who feel very passionately about exposing organizations like the Bilderberg group, the trilateral commision, and the CFR. Just look on Youtube. He isn't the most pleasant on people to talk to about hot button issues. He seems to be ready to discredit others but wants people to accept his op-ed pieces he gives...hypocritical. I also don't appreciate his very manipulated tactics and approach when discussing his views. I personally don't like his tactics of hiding under the guise as a self-proclaimed "constitutional conservative" so as to convert the Good ol' boys.--this is much like Rand Paul is doing. It is disingenuous and not honest. In his defense I can say he has made some great editorials and speeches on liberty and has brought lots of people towards the message of liberty. I wish the best for him but hope that he will continue to distance himself from the Pauls' in an effort to not ruin Rands or Judge Napolitano's chances in 2016.

The attacks on Jack were

The attacks on Jack were mostly unfair. Not that he didn't say those things, but he has greatly evovled in his position. Some of his comments were taken out of context, and a lot of his statements that are very pro-leftist were ignored. In fact, I think that if Rand truly knew some of the things he had said in regards to gays, guns, and abortion, it might be Rand who would have had a problem.

Ultimately, Jack had a big issue where he was a good writer and a good speaker when he could prepare something. On the fly? He was terrible. The interview he had with Napolitano is cringeworthy.

Hunter: “praising Jesus and worshiping Satan simultaneously.”

Hunter's phraseology describes himself more than it does Lincoln. Hunter can go back to his cave.

Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right

It was wrong to call either Ron Paul or Rand Paul racist, obviously. They are individualists, which is not compatible and is the opposite of racism.

But making a racist hiring decision is not "blowback" nor would it achieve anything but to look like a political decision. I don't know why you think it would be a good idea to hire someone based on their race.

When the right attacks someone on the left, they panic. Shirley Sharrod, that Black guy with the lisp who signed the 9-11 protestors thing...Obama fired them before it came out that the charges the "right" levied against them were fabricated, misleading(Sharrod), or excusable(guy with lisp).

But when the left attacks someone on the right, they stand by and defend their man. Rand defended Jack. The Right defended the Congressmen who made the dumb comments about reproductive rights. etc. etc.

Good - Now Jack needs to just fade into the background somwhere

While he's a brilliant mind and I agree with him on many occasions his communication style is horrendously condescending and extremely off-putting.

He needs to become a behind the scenes producer and let someone else be the face to his thoughts and ideas.

Rand was wise to separate himself!

Lincoln was a supremecist; that isn't what ruined Hunter's name

nor is sympathizing with Americas laws normative to the south.

racist discrimination without presuming one race is superior is merely drawing distinctions, not supremecy.

why I didn't like Jack Hunter was because he seemed to say all the wrong things when we were trying to elect Paul in 2012 and people just got tired of it.

Jack was right on Lincoln

Both Ron Paul and Judge Napolitano have been very out spoken on Lincoln's tyrany and how he stepped all over the constitution.

The first Republican prez set the pattern for the party

With Lincoln setting the bar on constitutional fidelity as low as he did, both parties have been enabled to play off each others weaknesses, rather than calling each other to do as they have sworn duty towards.

he made the right move

it still won't stop all his opponents from bringing up Hunter's name every chance they get.

Jack Hunter is an extremist

Welcome home to the libertarian fringe, Mr. Hunter! This should be a character building experience for Jack Hunter. His allies are not to be found on the Sunday talk shows. His allies are the libertarian extremists who value his commitment to liberty so much they find the stupidities of his youth irrelevant (like joining a neoconfederate group).

Addendum: as if it weren't clear before, this means ONE thing:

Rand is ABSOLUTELY serious about POTUS-run in 2016!!
