On her show Monday, Laura Ingraham spoke to Pat Buchanan about Republican prospects come November, and how it’s too early to assume President Obama‘s re-election. Specifically, Buchanan — a former MSNBC contributor who was recently blacklisted by the network — took a jab at MSNBC, saying viewers will just get “down-hearted” by their coverage.
Insisting there’s hope yet, Buchanan said, “This thing can be won. Take a look at those polls in The Washington Post on Obama on gas prices, the deficit, the economy. This can be won.” If Republicans pull together when a nominee is chosen, he said “Obama is not invincible.”
Buchanan said he believes Mitt Romney will be the nominee, but that the entire process has been drawn out more than people expected. Regarding what Ingraham called the “Obama razzle dazzle” (and Republicans’ inability to beat it), Buchanan encouraged voters to seek solace in properly informing themselves. “This thing is winnable,” he said. “And I would tell folks, look you got to watch something besides my old network, MSNBC where you’ll just get downhearted. You know, check some of the other networks and check the papers and read.”
