As I recall the speeches from Pat Buchanan and Pat Robertson
forced what would be Ronald Reagan's final speech to a national Republican convention out of prime time.
Quite frankly I would have preferred more of Reagan's optimism
at a national convention than listening to the mad (angry) Pats.

Coming out of the Republican convention, the Republicans were seen as bitter, sour, and pessimistic about American. Clinton ran as an optimist. Guess who won!
In the interest of full disclosure, I voted for Bush.

Well I don’t think you can blame Buchanan for the GOP’s inept scheduling. Reagan’s speech was very good, too.

Bucahanans speech was viewed as negative by the libtard media, who reported it as if he called on Catholics to attack and burn Protestant churches.

Reagan was great at never giving the libtard media much to work with.

Bush lost the election on his own. The fact is that he ran a horrible lackluster camapign. Remember “Read My Lips” and “Read My Hips”? Remember his looking at his watch during the debates? Remember the supermarket scanner incident?

Clinton ran on “change” and after 12 years of GOP running things, and a recession, America went for it.
