President Polk Helped Fulfill Manifest Destiny

Polk: Forgotten Great
By Patrick J. Buchanan

As America debates whether to send tens of thousands more troops to Afghanistan, a riveting new book recalls a time when Americans fought wars for vital national interests. The Mexican War was as just a war as we have ever fought. And although President James K. Polk lacked the character of Washington, the brilliance of Jefferson, and the charisma of Jackson, he belongs with the immortals. None gave more or did more for America.


President Polk was instrumental in helping to fulfill Manifest Destiny. If only we had such sound minded men today who aren't neutered by PC cultists and who reject any imposed "white guilt!"
