Pat Buchanan Smacks Down Bill Press: 'You’ve Got to Get Beyond Being a Fringe Talk Show Host'
News Busters ^ | 15 Jan 2011 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 01/15/2011 11:04:14 AM PST by mandaladon

During an impromptu reunion of CNN's "Crossfire" Friday, Pat Buchanan told his old sparring partner Bill Press, "You’ve got to get beyond being a fringe talk show host."

In the middle of a very heated debate on MSNBC's "The Ed Show," Buchanan strongly cautioned the host and his liberal guest, "I think this last week, there’s been a climate of hatred built up against [Sarah Palin] who did nothing and I tell you, if she does run for president of the United States, I pray to the lord she’s given secret service protection from day one" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Sarah Palin is a political figure, she’s a person who has used a lot of inflammatory rhetoric

Libtards have to blame a bad society or some bad part of society such as conservatives for any bad behavior of one of its members. It's like a mindless, knee-jerk reflex with them. If they can blame society, then they can fix it by controlling society and creating a behaviorist utopia and eliminating the things they despise such as Christianity, capitalism, and conservatives such as Palin.

The ironic thing is that while the left hears and does not understand anything one man that cannot hear gets it all. The man behind the golden microphone. The Will Rogers of our time.

Excellent catch!! And his defense of Sarah has been brilliant. Especially his riposte to snide so-called Republicans who say she can't win - "so what you're telling me is that you would rather have Obama?"

Ah, but a Lieutenant General in German is called an Oberst General, literally, a Colonel General. And when you think about it, it makes more sense. A Major outranks a lieutenant, and therefore, a Lieutenant General shouldn't outrank a Major General!

Yeah you're right. Like they have been able to fix places like Detroit, St. Louis, New Orleans, Washington, DC - or any other place in this country or worldwide for that matter.

OK, i swallowed my disgust of Ed Schultz and Bill Press and forced my self to watch two Maroons being completely encircled and destroyed by superior intellect. Isn’t it amazing the fantasy world these clowns live in?

Love your posts. I will look for your contributions in the future. Are you a professional historian? Thank you for sharing your knowledge of history and it’s parallels to what is happening today.

“Damn, that’s a great post BC!”

Thanks, Todd. She is a GREAT candidate. It is easy to write about her. Imagine the difficulty in drawing such analogies in the case of Huckabee and Romney. They would generate derision even over at Mitt and Huck Central.

Deliberately so, Al. As RR used to say, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.” LOL

“Are you a professional historian?”

That is mighty kind of you. No. Not a historian (although I do love history). I am just an amateur blogger and Palin fan.

Well you definitely give a good historical perspective to contemporary issues. Quite illuminating.

“She is a GREAT candidate.”

Perhaps not officially just yet.

But it does not seem likely that the couple years of live fire training she will have logged by official declaration time are going to diminish your estimation of her ability to thrive in rather than merely survive the real campaign.

Her decision to leave the friendly bunker and to go mobile seems, every day, more wise. She has since, with ease, gotten the opposition to show most their 2012 cards.

There is no speaker more eloquent, and writer more brilliant, than Pat Buchanan. Except occasionally he goes off on some weird tangent about gas turbines in concentration camps.

I tried to watch it, but could not make it through the whole thing. Liberals are idiots...that’s all there is to it.

The left’s appointment at Appomattox is November 6, 2012. Don’t be late, fellas.

Tell Mrs. McLean to get the house ready.

Some months ago I wrote about a Palin-Bachmann ticket that would do a house cleaning of the White House. They would just put Zer0 out on the sidewalk and put a woman’s touch (I don’t mean to be sexist) to the cesspool of Washington DC. The more I think about it the more sense it makes.
