photoThe George W. Bush administration is famous for being "on message," and delivering a consistent and polished political perspective no matter what. Such consistency apparently does not extend to every member of the conservative universe.

In "Where the Right Went Wrong," veteran pundit and occasional presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan offers up scathing criticisms of Bush's policies. He warns that the arrogance and boorishness of the Bush administration could dramatically destabilize the United States' superpower status.

Hear Pat Buchanan explain why he thinks the evolution of American conservatism is taking the nation down a dangerous course.

Guests:

Pat Buchanan, editor of The American Conservative magazine, three-time presidential candidate, author of the new book "Where the Right Went Wrong: How NeoConservatives Subverted the Reagan Revolution and Hijacked the Bush Presidency"

Jack Beatty, On Point news analyst, senior editor for The Atlantic Monthly magazine.

This program aired on September 21, 2004.
