Pat Buchannan worked as a partisan commentator speechwriter and general conservative thinktanker for the Republican party Political action figure memoirs are fascinating to run through a generation later just to see how the ideas have played themselves out over time Many tropes continue to play themselves out especially the GOP Big Tent policy where religious and economic conservatives eye each other suspiciouslyMost of the book does not center on his major political career at the time but up until the point he started writing speeches for President Richard NixonSPOILER Buchannan was for stoking the fires of fundamentalism abroad to combat Communism which led in part to the World Trade Center terrorist attacks uite the miscalculation

Right from the BeginningRial writer in the country to joining the staff of Richard M Nixon t. Pat Buchanan's memoirpolitical manifesto is undeniably a product of its time Published in 1988 it assumes the reader's intimacy with him as an aide and speechwriter for Nixon Ford and Reagan and dives headlong into an extensive biography of his years prior to his involvement with politics The book even opens with him deciding not to run for the Republican Party nomination in 1988 with the implicit statement that he is too conservative to lead the party to victory Yet Buchanan would run three times for President afterward and under considerably different shades of conservatism than he professes within the bookThe last two chapters of the book seem to show a political figure that has been sheltered by years of service to presidential administrations The issues he would become known for trade immigration and American foreign entanglement are hardly mentioned at all There are strong shades of his infamous Culture War speech of 1992 but the final chapter has him concerned with the technical details of how many nuclear weapons the Russians have and not how many immigrants both legal and illegal the United States has been taking in But to the meat of the book Buchanan's upbringing is as you'd expect if you know anything about the man Catholic Irish blunt and clever Pat gets into far drunken entanglements than would expect of someone who rails against the modern Catholic church homosexuality marxists and all the other various targets of his barbed wit This is the great charm of Right From The Beginning Buchanan never holds back any punches and you get to know exactly the kind of person he is Most modern political biographies are often extended advertisements for one's accomplishments but RFTB while not exactly a humble outing never veers into pompous territoryRecommended if you're interested in the man I became interested due to his obvious influence on Trump plus his fantastic book Churchill Hitler and the Unnecessary War or in memoirsbiographies in general I take off a star because I was interested in his political career once he started working Nixon in 1965 but he tells readers that's for another book that has yet to be written
