Pat Buchanan: Obama Shares My Position on Iran

Original post made by Samuel, Stanford, 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.

I liked Lieberman's statement this evening, he believes Obama may have promise in the future when he has more experience and a record of executive competence, but he is too risky a choice in these dangerous times.

If Palin gives the speech we all know she is going to give, this election is over. The left knows this and they are terrified to the point of hysteria today.

The question is this. Will Palin talk about the MSM attacks on her family or will she ignore it? I have a feeling she is going to take the attacks about her family head on and in the process become the darling of America that she already has become.

Something is happening here, but you don't know what it is - do you, Liberal Jones?
