Not that it would deter fools on the internet from persisting with the outright lie that Jon Huntsman is some sort of “RINO” monster, but his jobs plan has the support of FreedomWorks and the Wall Street Journal.
Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman Jr. has been pegged by some as a moderate, but now his economic agenda he unveiled this week is receiving praise from the tea party juggernaut, FreedomWorks, and the editorialists at the Wall Street Journal.
Matt Kibbe, President and CEO of FreedomWorks, told Deseret News that he liked Huntsman’s plan.
“It actually looks pretty intriguing to me and I would have to agree with him,” said Kibbe. “One of my frustrations with Mitt Romney is … there’s been no specificity; there’s been no plans put on the table. It sounds like Huntsman actually put a real plan on the table and that’s exciting. I hope that catches on because I think Republicans win with better ideas not just opposing them all.”
Friday, The Wall Street Journal likewise heaped praise on Huntsman.
“Mr. Huntsman’s proposal is as impressive as any to date in the GOP presidential field, and certainly better than what we’ve seen from the front-runners,” the Journal wrote. “Perhaps Mr. Huntsman should be asked to give the Republican response to the president’s jobs speech next week. The two views of what makes an economy grow could not be more different.”
But feel free to keep spreading the lie that the Democrats have intended for you to spread. “But Jimmy Carter and Harry Reid endorsed him!!!1!” Ummm, do you really think ANY high profile Democrat would endorse anyone other than Barack Obama , other than to rile up the easily-riled on the right? They did it because , as the partisan shriekers have proven, it works. He may not be your chosen candidate, but let’s stop with the “making stuff up” approach. As your candidates, who have been a day late and a dollar short in proposing their own plans by the way, extract Jon’s ideas for their own plans (and they will) a little credit would be in order.
