I don't Pat Buchanan certainly had a professional sense for for decades now and and whether you agree disagree with him.
Man is this -- a hell of a writer and a hell of a thinker and he just distinguishes himself.
From almost everyone else in the business because he looks beyond what is obvious and sees trends that most people.
Can't catch on above -- for some time many many years if ever.
Pat Buchanan's -- as a right now the former presidential candidates welts who has a very record of moving conventions like the one and I think 1992 Patrick -- memory serves her right.
But now we face a different sort of environment where.
Back then Republicans were trying to show that they were very united and ready and we later found out that they were certainly not ready.
This convention is going to say it's ready -- -- -- disruption notwithstanding.
And it will go on to win what do you make of those comparisons.
Well I think PM I think you're kind of acrobat 1992.
The idea when they had me -- but the -- speaker that -- -- Ronald Reagan actually recognize.
I was -- -- -- basically our stage.
West to bring home the street they didn't vote chart -- and to -- -- to the nine billion or eleven million that George H.
And then begin the convention to move forward.
Against the democratic candidate and of course -- we have Ross Perot in there.
And we succeeded they're -- but I think Ross Perot getting out and getting back can't was fatal for Mr.
But -- this convention here.
I think it's I mean Mitt Romney I think is looking pretty good now he's got to draw ought to -- in charge straight to win best.
He's got to win back some -- -- of these states that were lost last time by McCain and and not lose any of -- states like Missouri which is now imply.
I think it can be gotten and one of the best pieces of news section here deal is.
The fact that Obama is now it's 46 of -- -- forty each have a what's gonna -- debt is not -- one point different.
-- that Obama has fewer than half -- the countries say they want to reelect -- which means what Mitt Romney's got to do is closed the sale.
He's failed to do it -- far but he is a golden opportunity coming up this week.
You know remember that 92 convention very well -- -- -- what they are remember the response to your remarks later of course Ronald Reagan's.
Remarks who Renault two years later he would acknowledge having alzheimer's disease so that was his last big public.
Event if you think about it.
And one of the things that I said said of the party then is that while conservatives were given a chance to speak.
And and boys stared there their collective.
Sort of expression.
It was not really.
Heartfelt to the party that was the -- that and I don't know if that was even accurate.
And ended does seem to use of the Paul weren't picked I was standing that diehard conservatives even some of the libertarian ones in this room.
Aren't quite convinced about this ticket how do you overcome that banks those doubts.
Well the problem in 1992 -- a George Bush lost part of -- -- I read in the Hampshire I came very close to bush and came out of nowhere.
But when the -- Hampshire where it's time magazine right in the voters in New Hampshire were ask a question regardless of who you gonna vote for who do you agree with more Buchanan.
Jump -- like 80% Chet Buchanan.
So the problem George H.
Bush that -- reigniting and it's firing up the heart of the Republican Party.
Romney and ensure that because he -- lost -- what has happened now grow.
Is a Republican Party I will -- this is ignited by a tremendous fear.
-- Barack Obama had one more term an officer Barack Obama and the damage done to the American.
Our economy and polity will be irreversible.
There's a tremendous apprehension and fear of Obama -- reelected.
And I think Ryan didn't help digest -- -- a minute ago Brian -- helped it I think you're gonna get behind Mitt Romney put that recent.
I think this just that this should remain to winnable -- -- -- I'll be honest I think peak.
Unless we take the house and the senate and the president -- and I'm not sure it can't even begun band but unless we get that.
I think the country -- great trouble.
We'll the only way to dismantle Ulster music about a -- is to get the senate even a majority because.
Then by reconciliation you could take it apart bit by bit but just -- the White House doesn't.
Doesn't -- -- you're right.
-- -- -- -- -- Resilience -- point you got 25% of GDP the government spending that the federal level.
And I heard -- previously able gonna cut it back to 20%.
That was Republican Party have the courage and -- and determination.
To cut the federal deficit by basically one killed.
Yeah it's typically it's a big -- thank you my friend always -- have you Pat Buchanan one of the finest minds of the conservative.
Move and I don't care how you -- 01 -- others there's just no debating.
