I think Pat actually believed that Bush had learned something from the Iraq disaster and would muster up the will to clean out the barn, hoisting the cabal of neocons out of their offices in the Pentagon and State Department, depositing them over at AIPAC, AEI, or Commentary magazine where they could devise more nefarious schemes to advance Israeli rather than American strategic interests.
Now, writing about the inauguration, Pat says, "President Bush is launching a crusade even more ambitious and utopian than was Wilson's." Pat writes that the president has proclaimed "a unilateral American right to interfere in the internal affairs of every nation on earth, without regard to whether these nations have threatened us or attacked us." Predicting disaster, Buchanan ominously warns that, "This is a formula for endless collisions between this nation and every autocratic regime on earth and must inevitably lead to endless wars. And wars are the death of republics."
Whatever you do, don't blame me, I voted for Peroutka.
