I'm sick of these republicans, what with their pathological bush-hate.

There was a slight oversight in the endorsements section:

"His mother thinks he is a swell guy, and he tidies up the basement real nice."

A Republican that's against the corporate takeover of America? Is he not on the mailing list?

In two thousand and four, the Republicans were split...

The two nominees for the presidential candidate..

There was George W. Bush, the current president, and a corporate whore..
John Buchanan, a moderate..

/got nothin'

Wow, he is more of a Democrat than Leiberman. Is he on any ballots?

He looks like Jerry Springer too.

Regardless, doesn't he know that to be a republican one must first declare supreme allegiance to the Holy One of Crawford? Only then is your place to be found within the Grand Old Party.

Why do I get the feeling that this site was created by a Democratic web-head with too much time on his/her hands? Don't get me wrong; the guy probably exists (I'm too lazy to actually search for him) but the whole site is just so lame.

*sigh* - if only a real major moderate repub had the balls to make a challenge to W...

Then again, I also wish we had 4+ real parties. I can dream...

He doesn't look very presidential, at all. Therefore, he doesn't have a shot at being president. That's how it goes, imnsho (not saying that's how I think it should be, saying that's how it is).

Well you can cut him down to size with the Edwards critique. The guy looks too young!!!

Why does he hate freedom so much, daddy?

What's the other Buchanan up to nowadays? Man, we can really use a Perot this year.

Seriously, it is nice to see a real conservative instead of the status-quo sycophants, warmongerers, corporate whores, and religious fundies who have over taken the GOP in a bloodless coup.

He appears to be a very determined freelance journalist. Or a loonball with an axe to grind.

This HNN article discusses his series of articles on the Bush-Nazi connection, and how it was rejected by most mainstream publications ("The association of the Tarpley-Chaitkin book with the organization headed by the Lyndon LaRouche organization (published by the Executive Intelligence Review of Washington, a LaRouchian press) has not been helpful, to say the least."). Note that the Dorothy Goulding "endorsement" from this page is lifted from here. The NH Gazette article has his email address at the bottom, and googling that gets us to here ("Please spread this story as widely as possible, the author is currently being harrassed by mainstream press outlets, the IRS, and the banking industry. They are trying to shut him up we must get the word out!").

Also note that while his endorsements page seems to imply that former NH GOP chair David Gosselin endorses Buchanan, this press release says “Somebody should challenge Bush in the Republican primary,” said David Gosselin, former state GOP chairman, whose Web site www.gogosselin.com is actively seeking an alternative candidate. “I have been looking for someone to challenge the President, a candidate who has national political experience and the associated stature to give George W. Bush a run for his money.” Gosselin does not believe Buchanan is that candidate.

I'd believe this more if it had more randomly capitalized words and exclamation points, though.

Apparently not. He's still spouting the values which identified Republicans 20, 30, 40 years ago. Which are completely different from Republicans today. (As a disgruntled ex-Republican, I should know.)
