He Said It…

“I am a genetic Republican,”  the article starts.

John G.  Taft wrote an op-ed article for the New York Times recently.  He is a relative of the president William Howard Taft.  Many in his family have been active in politics at the state and federal level – and they have been Republicans.  His op-ed takes a look at the recent actions within the Tea Party wing of the Republican party and actually compares them with another questionable episode from Republican Party politics – McCarthyism.  

He even compares senator Ted Cruz to senator Joseph McCarthy.

Ouch.

He said it…I didn’t….
