ARLINGTON, Virginia, October 26, 2004 ( – Syndicated national newspaper columnist, host of MSNBC’s daily news program, “Buchanan & Press,” former advisor to three presidents, and former nominee for the leadership of the Republican Party, Pat Buchanan, is endorsing US President George W. Bush for re-election.  In an opinion article in the November 8 edition of The American Conservative, Buchanan writes, “If an authentic conservatism rooted in the values of faith, family, community, and country is ever again to become the guiding light of national policy, it will have to come through a Republican administration.”  Buchanan warns of the judicial repercussions of electing Senator John F. Kerry to the presidency: “With Kerry as president, William Rehnquist could be succeeded as chief justice by Hillary Clinton. Every associate justice Kerry named would be cut from the same bolt of cloth as Warren, Brennan, Douglas, Blackmun, and Ginsburg,” Buchanan continues. “Should Kerry win, the courts will remain a battering ram of social revolution and the conservative drive in Congress to restrict the jurisdiction of all federal courts, including the Supreme Court, will die an early death.”“I cannot endorse the candidate of Michael Moore, George Soros, and Barbra Streisand,” he says, “nor endorse a course of action that would put this political windsurfer into the presidency, no matter how deep our disagreement with the fiscal, foreign, immigration, and trade policies of George W. Bush.”“For this election has come down to Bush or Kerry,” Buchanan concludes, “and on life, guns, judges, taxes, sovereignty, and defense, Bush is far better.”  Read Buchanan’s opinion article at:   tv
