By Patrick J. Buchanan In echo of Warren Harding’s “A Return to Normalcy” speech of 1920, George Bush last week declared, “Normalcy is returning back to Iraq.” The term seemed a mite ironic. For, as Bush spoke, Iraqis were dying in the hundreds in the bloodiest fighting in months in Basra, the Shia militias of […]

By Patrick J. Buchanan In his Philadelphia address on race, Sen. Obama identified as a root cause of white resentment affirmative action — the punishing of white working- and middle-class folks for sins they did not commit: “Most working- and middle-class white Americans don’t feel that they have been particularly privileged by their race,” said […]

By Patrick J. Buchanan On reading George Bush’s discourse to the New York Economic Club last week, Cicero’s insight came to mind: “To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.” With Iraq entering its sixth year, the dollar sinking to peso levels, the economy careening into recession, […]

By Patrick J. Buchanan When the assassination of John F. Kennedy horrified a nation, Black Muslim Minister Malcolm X declared it payback for America’s violence in the world, a case of “chickens coming home to roost.” “Being an old farm boy myself,” said Malcolm, “chickens coming home to roost never did make me sad, they’ve […]

By Patrick J. Buchanan To observe Democrats this week, savaging one of their heroines, is to understand why the party is unready to rule.

Buchanan “The commonest error in politics,” said Lord Salisbury, “is sticking to the carcass of dead policies.” Lord Salisbury’s rule comes to mind on reading of John McCain’s delight at the $40 billion contract awarded the French-led parent of Airbus — to build the next generation of U.S. Air Force tankers.

By Patrick J. Buchanan “All is race,” wrote Benjamin Disraeli, “there is no other truth.” What Disraeli meant by race is what Winston Churchill meant when he spoke of “our island race” — a tribe, an ethnic group, a people unique and separate from all others.
