America's Simon Jenkins?

I've written in the past of Pat Buchanan's odd attitude to trade and protectionism. It's an area he returns to in the latest American Conservative.

Indeed, if the issue is jobs, Republicans ought to be thrown out. For not only are they not creating them, they have no idea how to stop exporting them.

His timing was very poor.

The [US] economy added 308,000 jobs in March, the Labor Department estimated, pulling out of a pattern of tepid employment growth to clock the largest number of new jobs in a single month since April 2000.

Unfortunately for Buchanan, and fortunately for America, the Republicans are not yet listening to him on this issue.
