Buchanan: John McCain ‘Will Make Cheney Look Like Gandhi’

On the NBC Today Show, liberal radio host Rachel Maddow, conservative pundit Pat Buchanan, and Democratic strategist Paul Begala discussed the importance of “change” in the upcoming election. Voters want a “clean break from Bush,” argued Maddow. Begala added that McCain does not represent that type of change:

BEGALA: If McCain wins, he’s running for a third term for Bush. He wants to make Bush’s Iraq war permanent, Bush’s economic program permanent.

Buchanan concluded the segment by arguing that McCain “will make Cheney look like Gandhi.” Watch it:

Yesterday, ThinkProgress released a video documenting the fact that the leading Republican candidates are mimicking Bush’s policies and are looking to institute a third Bush term.
