Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I quote Pat Buchanan because:

  1. Of all the articles on Scheunemann that I have read, his is the most scathing

  2.  It is precisely because his politics is so far removed from the progressive/reality based community that makes his scathing critique of McCain and his advisor so interesting.  Had it been written by a "progressive", it would just have been par for the course, if rather more outspoken than usual.

  3. Obama and the progressive left seem to have given McCain a pass on this one.  I find the lack of moral outrage astonishing.

  4.  Discredited in the US or no, he is one of the few conservatives in the US who is well enough known this side of the pond to ring a few bells.  Given my credibility on this issue was called into question in both the Irish Times, and Irish Independent, it seriously undermines charges that I am pro-Russian if someone like Buchanan is making the same or similar argument.

  5.  I fund it interesting that many of the older conservatives (non-neo) seem to be moving to Obama.

Well, given that Buchanan is so isolationist that he believes that we shouldn't have fought Nazi Germany, I'm not sure how much credibility we're talking about.

I obviously don't agree with Buchanan on Nazi Germany, but right now, a little more isolationist influence in the USA would be quite welcome - given that US interventions abroad under Cheney/Bush have been almost wholly negative.

Actually Buchanan was on the McLaughlin Group this week emphasizing the need for cooperation, not isolations, between Russia and the US.  I really don't see any truth in the assertion that Buchanan has no credibilty on this issue.
