Will Obama Play the War Card? by Patrick J. Buchanan: “Daniel Pipes in a National Review Online piece featured by the Jerusalem Post – ‘How to Save the Obama Presidency: Bomb Iran’ – urges Obama to make a ‘dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a lightweight, bumbling ideologue’ by ordering the U.S. military to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Citing six polls, Pipes says Americans support an attack today and will ‘presumably rally around the flag’ when the bombs fall.
Will Obama cynically yield to temptation, play the war card and make ‘conservatives swoon,’ in Pipes’ phrase, to save himself and his party? We shall see.”
