Sharpton: Obama's no 'boy'

Posted: August 04, 2011

NEW YORK - Pat Buchanan said that he didn't mean to slur President Obama by referring to him as "your boy" during a discussion with Al Sharpton.

The former GOP presidential candidate and current MSNBC analyst appeared on "Morning Joe" yesterday to explain remarks he made on that network's Sharpton show 12 hours earlier. They were discussing Obama's political strength when Buchanan said that "your boy" had caved in past negotiations and was likely to do so again.

"My what?" Sharpton responded. "My president, Barack Obama? What did you say?"

Buchanan, using a boxing analogy, answered that Obama was "your boy in the ring."

"He's nobody's boy," Sharpton said. "He's your president, he's my president, and that's what you have to get through your head."
