I earlier said that GOP Presidential-hopeful Jon Huntsman was a moderate Republican. I was mistaken, as the recent outline of his jobs plan reveals. This is the basic economic wish list of any GOP member right now. When even the supposed moderates back a plan like this (not to mention the “no tax increases even with ten times the cuts” pledge every candidate made during the last debate), then you know the party has been taken over by the extremists. Though I am unlikely to ever vote for a Republican, the country is best served when both parties have members who act like grown-ups and don’t seem intent on undoing the 20th century.
