Laura Ingraham hosted Pat Buchanan.
Buchanan said Obama had the leverage due to the fact that taxes would have gone up for everyone and so the GOP capitulated. He said now this issue has been taken off the table so the GOP can now fight bigger battles. Ingraham commented on the lack of transparency and that the House got the bill 3 minutes before the vote. He and Ingraham agreed the left are livid because they think Obama gave too much.
Ingraham and Buchanan discussed the new reunification of illegal immigrants with their families move that President Obama is pushing to pad their demographic. Buchanan noted that over half of Hispanic households are head by single women who consume many benefits.
Buchanan said Chuck Hagel is a veteran, courageous and an independent thinker and that he's been slimed because he supported Obama in 2008. He would support him as a defense secretary. He expressed concern about war with Iran and that Hagel would thread the needle on this issue.
