Pat Buchanan's 2010 strategy: Oppose everything, just like Medicare & the Voting Rights Act in the '60s

November 12, 2009 3:00 pm ET by Jamison Foser


On last night's Hardball, MSNBC's Pat Buchanan relived his glory days while offering the Republicans some political advice:

BUCHANAN: Look at '65, Medicare, Medicaid, education, Voting Rights Act.

MATTHEWS: You guys won in '66.

BUCHANAN: We won 47 seats. We didn't do a thing but say no, no, no.

...

BUCHANAN: In 2010, we are the alternative. We are against them. That's all you need.


Most people, upon recalling their opposition to the Voting Rights Act, would probably express some remorse. But not Pat Buchanan, who complains that "Old heroes like ... Robert E. Lee are replaced by Dr. King."
