Pat Buchanan Refers To President Obama As ‘Your Boy’ To Al Sharpton (VIDEO)

Pitting newly minted host Al Sharpton against longtime conservative firebrand Pat Buchanan was bound to generate a potent shouting match, no matter what the topic. But given Buchanan’s record of questionable comments, it’s hard not to find something off-color about his debate with Sharpton today, where, discussing the debt, he argues that “your boy,” President Obama, was “whipped” by Sen. Mitch McConnell, and adds a “briar patch” reference for good measure.

The debate centers around who got the post around the debt deal, and both predictably argued that their side decimated the other. That said, Sharpton noted that the narrative going into 2012 was far more favorable to the Tea Party thanks to the deal: “not only did they they did get all they wanted, they set up a narrative now for the 2012 election where it will be around tax cuts.” Buchanan responded facetiously, “please don’t throw me under the briar patch!” a saying typically meant to indicate reverse psychology that happens to come from the same “Uncle Remus and Legends of the Old Plantation” fable that gave us the term “tar baby” (“Br’er Rabbit,” it should be noted, seems to be having some sort of resurgence today).

That would’ve been enough to raise some eyebrows from Buchanan, but Sharpton didn’t really seem to take offense until Buchanan referred to President Obama as “your boy,” which seemed to stun the host. “My what?” he asked. “My President, Barack Obama? What did you say?” “He’s your boy in the ring,” Buchanan corrected, which Sharpton immediately shot down. “He’s nobody’s boy– he’s your president, he’s our president, and that’s what ya’ll don’t get through your head.” Sharpton then returned to the topic at hand, suggesting that the President was “rope-a-doping” Republicans by making them punch themselves out on this issue.

Buchanan didn’t buy it, and had one more questionable comment in the quiver: “if he gets whipped by Mitch McConnell, how is he going to beat Mitt Romney?” Sharpton didn’t forgive the “boy,” comment, however, ending the interview by telling Buchanan to “take care of your Tea Party boys.”

    buchanan thought it was funny, it is not funny calling the President of the United States a boy, they would have never said that about anyone else. BUT LET’S NOT PLAY THE RACE CARD/

  • Made as hell

    You said lets not play the race card, are you crazy, You just answered the statement, they never said this about any other President, why this one?  because he is what? you fill in the blank. The race card was played the minute he was elected.  Please!

  • CLHARVEY06

    NOW YOU CALL THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES A LIAR, TAR BABY, NOW BOY…THERE ARE NOT A MORE WORDS LEFT FOR YOU TO REALLY SAY THE WORD YOU WANT TO CALL HIM….COME DO IT…HE’S STILL THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! NOT A BOY!!!

  • SicknTired

    WTH, first being called a Di–, then referred to as a Tarbaby, now Boy, when was it ok to disrespect an American President, and they expect the world to respect the US. When it’s dirty good ol boys can’t be respectful after playing dirty politics with the world for many years. Having a Black Man as the President show how much nothing in the last 50 years have changed at all… Things we as a peolple have complained aboub for many years now. The Race Card has never not been played, but because we have a Black MAN as President, true feelings about us as a people is harder to disguise…

  • Fdrlula

    Buchanan is right – Obama is a typical black boy.

    Look at the facts – blacks crowd the prisons and live in the
    ghettoes.

    Even Mexicans are far ahead of black negroes who live mostly
    in American ghettoes in every city of the country. Everywhere you see blacks,
    they are dumb, poor, and criminals. The boy has no business being in the WH. He
    has fucked everything white democrats have created since FDR. Shame on blacks

    Huh? Can’t play the race card?  He put it out there and it is Blatent Racism!!! If you don’t know the history of a black man being called “Boy”, then you will never understand.

    Are you for real. The majority on welfare are whites. and trailer parks are far worse than any urban project. and most henious crimes are committed by whites, it’s just unfortunate that our judicial system is not color blind you need to check your facts before making such blatant statements.

    It takes a lot of energy to hate.  Your ignorance will bring you to an end with your father. God will avenge. Sleep well. Hell is real.

  • luvwriting50

    We can hurt them with our money and our votes. Find out their special interest groups – those that supply them campaign $$ and don’t buy from them. POWER.  Don’t worry God will avenge we can do our part but “the meek shall inherit the earth” and “God resists the proud”.
