Pat Buchanan: Obama Shares My Position on Iran
Original post made by Samuel on Sep 2, 2008
In light of the smearing of Governor Palin by Obama surrogate Robert Wexler and Obama spokesman Mark Bubriski, both of whom alleged Palin was a supporter of Patrick Buchanan and therefore a "Nazi sympathizer," this statement from Buchanan today seems noteworthy:
"Let me say about Israel here. My position on Israel is frankly awful. It is like Mika [Brzezinski]'s father's, it's a lot closer to Barack Obama's than it is John McCain. I think Barack is right, we ought to talk to the Iranians, he's right to oppose the war and, frankly, he's right to say the Palestinian people have got a terrible deal over there and their suffering ought to be recognized. That's Obama's position. It's my position. I don't think it is a Nazi position".
Governor Palin never supported Pat Buchanan, having supported Steve Forbes in both 1996 and 2000.
Still, it must give great comfort to Wexler and Bubriski that Pat Buchanan does support Obama's position on Israel.
