During a discussion about gun control last night on "Hardball," Pat Buchanan brought up Bob Shrum's failed past as a campaign consultant in an apparent attempt to render his opinion on banning assault weapons moot. Shrum took offense to this and fired back, pointing out that despite his 0-8 record he never worked for a POTUS that went to jail.
BUCHANAN: Why don‘t you—look, you have advised eight presidential candidates; they have all gone down the tubes.
SHRUM: You know what, Pat...I never worked for a president of the United States who went to jail. I never worked for a president of the United States who went to jail... I would rather have been with George McGovern who lost that election, than with Richard Nixon...
BUCHANAN: Good for you.
SHRUM: ...who tried to steal the Constitution.
