Take the RINO Test!

A candidate like Newt Gingrich can get away with supporting the biggest socialist scheme in American government over the past 30 years because he says nasty things about the press and calls Barack Obama a Marxist. Jon Huntsman, on the other hand, can have a stellar conservative record as Utah’s governor, be anti-abortion and adored by the NRA. But if he refuses to spit out angry screeds against Obama, he’s dismissed as a RINO, the facts be damned.

The preceding quote belongs to MSNBC “Morning Joe” host and former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough.  And we could not agree more.  Joe’s latest column for Politico is an epic takedown of those who might call Newt Gingrich the only “true conservative” option for President -and those who label Jon Huntsman as a “RINO.” That’s right, it’s time to take the RINO quiz!

Click here to take the twenty question quiz and see how you do.  Here are two of the questions.  Be careful.  The answer might not be what you think.

Which candidate said of the Medicare prescription drug plan that was the largest expansion of entitlements since the Great Society, “Every conservative member of Congress should vote for this Medicare bill. Obstructionist conservatives can always find reasons to vote no”?

A. Mitt Romney

B. Newt Gingrich

C. Jon Huntsman

(Answer: B)

The American Conservative wrote this about which GOP candidate, “For the past two decades a ‘moderate’ Republican was one who didn’t generally side with his party on three issues: taxes, guns and abortion. [This candidate’s] record on those isn’t just to the right of the moderates. It is to the right of most conservatives”?

A. Mitt Romney

B. Newt Gingrich

C. Jon Huntsman

(Answer: C)

This quiz needs to go viral.  If you know people that dismiss Governor Huntsman because he’s “too far left,” show them this quiz.  If you comment at a blog or news site where a similar argument is being made, show them this quiz.  There is still plenty of time for people to recognize the truth about Jon Huntsman’s strong conservative record.  Joe Scarborough’s piece today may just provide the quick and easy way to get that point across to people.
