‘Your Boy’ Statement by Pat Buchanan Draws Immediate Objection

Written by AFRO-American newspapers on 12 August 2011.

(NNPA) - Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan is playing damage control after creating a bit of controversy when he referred to President Barack Obama as “your boy” in a discussion with Rev. Al Sharpton. Buchanan, a former Republican presidential candidate, was appearing on a show Sharpton was hosting on MSNBC Aug. 2 when he brought up the issue of the Bush tax cuts.

“And let me tell you; your boy, Barack Obama, caved in on it in 2010 and he’ll cave in on it again,” Buchanan said.

That was all the fuel Sharpton needed as he responded; “My what? My President, Barack Obama? What did you say?”

Buchanan responded, “He’s your boy in the ring, he’s your fighter.”

Sharpton not pleased with Buchanan’s response, fired back again. “He’s nobody’s boy.  He’s your president and he’s our president and that’s what y’all have got to get through your head.”

The next morning, on MSNBC’S “Morning Joe,” Buchanan appeared to clear the air over what he meant with his statement to Sharpton.

“I said one of the big losers, using boxing terminology, was 'your boy,' and I meant the president of the United States,” Buchanan reportedly said.  “Now this was taken, some folks took what I said as some kind of slur.  None was meant, none was intended, none was delivered, for the record.”

Ironically, Buchanan’s shared an appearance on “Morning Joe” with journalist Mark Hampering, who was making his first appearance on the network after being suspended for a month after characterizing Obama with a gutter epithet.
