Radio host should have pointed out that Buck himself, not the "liberal media," hurt him most in 2010

(Wouldn't that be a shock? – Promoted by Colorado Pols)

During an interview on KNUS' Jimmy Sengenberger Show Sat., GOP Senate candidate Ken Buck explained what he learned from his 2010 loss to Democrat Michael Bennet.

Buck told Sengenberger that, this time around, he won't let the "liberal media" and "liberal candidates" distract him from the "issues that voters care about." Listen to Buck on KNUS Sengenberger Show 9.21.13.

Judging from what Buck has said previously about his failed 2010 campaign, he was undoubtedly thinking about his views on social issues, like abortion, which were widely viewed as his downfall last time around.

But the ironic part is, if you think back to 2010, the most damaging single utterance Buck made, caught on video at a conservative gun gathering, showed a shocking exuberance by Buck himself to talk about his opposition to abortion, even in the cases of rape and incest.

Sengenberger surely remembers Buck's rape-and-incest comments, which were later used in TV ads, and he should have pointed out that there was no liberal media or liberal candidates present at the event, tricking Buck into going way beyond what was needed to answer a simple question about abortion.

It was all Buck. It was authentic. And the emotional intensity of his answer in this video, unprovoked by anyone, arguably cost him a Senate seat. How does this square with what Buck is saying now about how it was the liberal media that undermined him?

  1. Buck's remark that he did not prosecute an alleged rapist because he felt the victim was just suffering from "buyers remorse," also also allienated women and those who love them.

    Buck's gripe is that the MSM actually reported his remarks and of course, Meet The Press, is part of the MSM.

    Jason,

    As long as you continue in your self appointed role as media "scold," talk show hosts and journalists, when confronted with a candidate who expresses what is the official doctrine of the roman catholic church, "should" ask the important follow-up

    question, "Given your personal beliefs, would you vote to restrict access to reproductive medicine and if so, what, specifically?"

    You see, Jason, your personal belief system makes you horrified at the pro-life position, but for over sixty million catholics and untold others, the pro-life position as stated by Buck is the official doctrine of their churchs, even if they do not follow the precepts, they are not as horrified as you by its expression.
