Buchanan Stump Speech

Patrick Buchanan is the Reform Party candidate for President. The one-time speech writer for Richard Nixon quit the Republican Party last year. This is Buchanan's third run for president. We hear a portion of his speech last week in Baton Rouge, in which he continued his theme of social conservatism, blasting Republicans and Democrats for "taking religion out of the schools" and for their support of abortion rights. Buchanan says he would have a litmus test for the Supreme Court: he would only appoint justices who are opposed to abortion.
