Buchanan: Obama’s ‘Fundamental Idea’ On Foreign Policy Is Right, ‘Reluctance to Intervene’ Is Good

Columnist Pat Buchanan said President Obama’s “reluctance to intervene on foreign policy is good” and his “fundamental idea” is poorly applied, but is right on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group.”

Buchanan argued President Obama’s foreign policy legacy is “a combination, I — his reluctance to intervene is good, but Libya is a disaster. He shouldn’t have put the red line down. And there — so I think, overall, I don’t give him high marks. But I do — his fundamental idea that we go in, we go together, and we get out and come home is right, but I think the application of it’s been very poor.”
