by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 20, 2007 Both houses of Congress have now gone on record opposing Bush’s dispatch of 21,500 more troops to Iraq, yet neither house is willing to end U.S. involvement by cutting off funding for the war. Transparently, this is not a strategy for victory. It is a hold-the-line, stay-the-course […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 16, 2007 On Valentine’s Day, Chrysler sent a bouquet to its North American workers. Eleven thousand manufacturing jobs will be eliminated in the next 24 months – 9,000 in the states and 2,000 in Canada – and 2,000 white-collar workers will be let go, permanently.

by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 14, 2007 Saturday afternoon, writing in the basement, I took a break to surf the Internet.

by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 13, 2007 “A soft answer turneth away wrath,” teaches Proverbs 1:15. Our new secretary of defense, Roberts Gates, seems familiar with the verse, for his handling of Saturday’s wintry blast from Vladimir Putin at the Munich security conference was masterful. “As an old Cold Warrior, one of yesterday’s speeches […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 9, 2007 In aborting Iran’s nuclear program, “all options are on the table.” Some version of this threat against Iran has lately been made by John McCain, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Mitt Romney.

by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 6, 2007 Last week, Joe Biden walked into a Delaware diner, ordered a bowl of tomato soup and blew himself up. Too bad. We need Joe. In an interview with the New York Observer, lasting about as long as the soup, Biden, with raw if refreshing candor, managed to […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – February 2, 2007 “I’m concerned about protectionism, isolationism.” Those were the first words President Bush spoke as he sat down Wednesday at an editorial board meeting at the Wall Street Journal.
