Op/Ed: (VIDEO) Thought 'Uncle Remus' story was a fairy tale; tell that to MSNBC's Pat Buchanan, Rep. Lamborn

MSNBC's host Pat Buchanan and Rep.
Doug Lamborn (R-CO) forgot for some reason
that President Obama is not a character in
a Uncle Remus story, in their racial
statements.
An Reach Out Job Search News Blog Op/Ed


It's not cute, in the least when a trained Washington, D.C. talking head forgets his place in the world and refers to the President of the United States, as a boy.


Disagree with President Barack Obama as we might, at the Reach Out Job Search blog, this same Op/Ed news resource will defend him over racial based comments, that were best left in the 1950's. 


On Rev. Al Shapton's show on the MSNBC/Comcast/Infinity network, talking head Pat Buchanan actually in 2011, had nerves on live TV, to place the word 'boy' and President Obama, in the same sentence.


The conversation went as followed:
“Reverend Al, please don’t throw me into that briar patch.”
Your boy, Barack Obama, caved in… “
He’s your boy in the ring!”
Watch the video of the exchange below



If we're to count, Buchanan managed to throw three racial comments in one debate. Two references to the word "boy" and one about a "briar patch". For readers of our blog that don't know, briar patch has its' own racial overtones....think the Uncle Remus tale with Tar-Baby and Br'er Rabbit.


Moving on, today was extra special...in a deeply vale sarcasm type of way. As while 'Uncle Pat' believed he could refer to President Obama as a 'boy' in a 'briar patch', a U.S. Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-CO) took the Uncle Remus story to a whole new level, apologizing for referencing President Obama as a 'tar-baby'.


Lamborn deserves to be removed from office as a U.S. Representative. Where is Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) on this? Is he to busy running a victory lap on the debt ceiling debate that he can't start censure hearings against Lamborn? 


As for "Uncle Remus II-Pat Buchanan", he should be either removed or suspended from MSNBC for a period of time. Heck, the network have done the same to former hosts who done much less.
