a note to Pat Buchanan!
Note: This page is for general comments about Pat and his work. Please do not post questions or opinions on specific articles, issues or events. Try to be concise as lengthy comments may not be included. Others may be edited for spelling, etc. Thank you!
Once again you hit the nail on the head with your most recent commentary. Is our country still a good country? We have to continue to have hope for the future, but I agree with your premise that the light we used to have as a nation is dimming in a rapid way. Let us hope that somehow we will wake up as a nation before its too late. You are like a voice crying in the wilderness keep up the great work!
Mr. Buchanan - any (any) possibility of your accepting THE nomination in 2016? Or a Cabinet position? I took my future wife on a date to see you speak at Phillips Exeter Academy in 1992. You were prophetic on our immigration policies then/now and our role in the world then/future. Thank you for reminding us of world history and how it impacts our present. I have always appreciated your views.
Thought you should know - my daughter is enrolled in a prominent Catholic Home School program. She received a poor grade for defending Mr. Buchanan's position on illegal immigration for a research project. PC has even crept into the Catholic Home School system. Everything you predicted in '92 is coming to pass. Very sad.
Thanks for telling it like it is
I still have my canceled check from your '92 campaign. Sadly, I misplaced the hand-written note I received from your sister, Bay, thanking me for my very modest contribution. I would love to have had it framed. Please continue to speak for America.
Who Killed the New Majority
Your 'Who Killed the New Majority' column was really good. Why don't more newspapers pick up your column?
Who Killed the Republican Majority
Great article Pat. Clear, accurate, yet disturbing distillation of where we are at. What could possibly happen to change course? Who knows. I guess we just pray. Thanks for caring enough for this country to continually to speak the truth about these important matters. Cary
Gullibility Presumes a Vacuum
Dead on again with your War Party and Iran; including gas inferences. So far only Churchill and Sadam have used gas on the Kurds in the ME.
If I had one dollar for each time I have been asked: " Why did YOU Germans let it happen ! ? ", I could pay off my mortgage. Now I have to ask the abused Americans the same.
"Gullibility" presumes a vacuum, disliked by nature. Rather, the media-induced vacuum has been filled by them with pressurized untreated sewage. Goebbels could only have dreamed of the technology and methodology presently employed by the chief puppeteers and their warmongering, Nuremberg-ripe official helpers.
Please continue to help us organize our fragmented thoughts and information. Charles Frey
No More War
Mr Buchanan I find it unbelievable that after the disaster of the Iraq War, and budget reductions to deal with the deficit, we are even talking about war. It cannot happen again.
I still think after all this time you should have been president. Go Pat Go.
From a Liberal Fan
Pat, I'm finally writing to let you know some of us Liberals are big fans! I've been a fan since the 1970's via Mclaughlin. I find your International and economic views mostly spot on. How did Nixon & Reagan become Rinos?
Outing the Isreal Firsters
You would do a service to this country if you compiled a list of the most rabid Israel Firsters like Lindsay Graham, and publish it. It would do the Nation a favor if you named these Benedict Arnolds.
The Iraq War
Yes, there were no WMDs in Iraq and Iraq had nothing to do with AlQaida. It was no threat to the U.S., but its proximity to Israel made its missiles and army a threat to that nation. The Bush people were not so ignorant as to believe that Iraq was a threat to us, but they had an obligation to major donors to political campaigns and to the AIPAC, the major factors in determining American foreign policy.
Where are you Pat ? I miss you .
We are all in this
Pat, I hope you are back on the McLaughlin group soon and you have not given up. From Blighty I rely on you to get some sense spoken especially when Eleanor is wrong (ie whenever she speaks)
I know you do not consider yourself as one of the original English colony descendants but one thing is clear we are all in the same boat now. Just remember those of us who still feel the bonds through the generations will still number a few and in the darkest hours to come we can still count on each other.
Ten years ago, as a lieutenant colonel in charge of logistics at a mobilization station in Indiana, I was a whole-hearted supporter of Mr. Bush's adventure into Iraq. Now I have to say that my perspective has turned 180 degrees. I have realized that the whole debacle was little more than a Bush family vendetta against Saddam Hussein and his regime. The incredible hubris with which the Bushites rode our national sentiments post-9/11 got us into a protracted conflict in which we had no business being. If we ever recover, it will be decades before the international esteem we squandered can be regained. I fear we have forever forfeited our national image as liberators and have become regarded more as heavily armed international usurpers and bullies. We have sacrificed thousands of our best young people and far too much treasure on the altar of war for its own sake. I may well be the end of us.
You are missed
I miss your opinion on the Mclaughlin Group. My husband and I always tape it. Are you done with the show? You are tough to replace.
Your Absence From The Tube
Pat, your die hard fans need to to know why you have not been on recent episodes of McLaughlin Group. I don't think John (or whoever is calling the shots) would cower like MSNBC did, but we deserve to know. If you are not coming back, I hope you release a statement in regard to it. P.S. Come back!
Pat - I'm in the midst of finishing "Suicide of a Superpower". I purchased it not long after the foggy November drubbing, while in search of intellectual political direction. It's an incredibly fascinating book. A must read for anyone serious about the future of America...Hopefully that is a vast majority of us! In any case, will you be speaking anytime soon in New England?
Who Should Speak for the Republican Party?
I can't think of anyone else who should speak for me and the American Conservative Movement and the Republican Party other than you Pat. Been a Joe McCarthy supporter since I was a kid and then onto WFB and Barry Goldwater and many others and Reagan and pause...then to Perot and Buchanan and somewhat for Ron Paul and now his son and Ted Cruz and Tom Tancredo and Joe Farah...but you above all! Ok, so I am not First Officer Spock, but I wish for my favorite Earthling and Irish Man, "Live Long..and Prosper" And always, America-First!
Where are you?
Been noticeably missing you from the McLaughlin Group these past few weeks. Please update us as to your whereabouts, and when you expect to return to your regular seat as first responder to John's opening query.
I trust you and yours are well.
I have not seen you on the McLaughlin Group for the past two Sundays. I miss your brilliant commentary.I hope you are coming back . We need your conservative brilliance and balance to the liberal regulars.
A loyal follower,
John J Dunn
Where are You?
Perhaps my favorite TV show is The McLaughlin Group, but only because of you, Pat. I have missed you on the last two Sundays....please don't tell me you are off the show!
Your artcle "Pope Francis Against the West
I found your article "Pope Francis - Against the West" right on and inspiring
I can't remember when I haven't watched you regularly on The McLaughlin Group. Best always.
Missing on the McLaughlin Group
The same question asked by others: why are you missing from the McLaughlin Group? I've been trying to find an answer to this.
