What, exactly, is Buchanan's contribution to our current mess, xfranman? Pat has been railing against what has been going on in this country most of his adult life - but those in power do not listen. Pat has not been part of the gov't since Reagan was president. He has been a sworn enemy of both Bushes (ran against GHWB for the repub nomination in '92). He has been against ALL of our wars dating back to the '91 Gulf War. Again, how has Pat contributed to our current mess???
BTW, I agree completely with your second sentence on W.
