As a staunch conservative commentator, Bay Buchanan has been a fixture in TV punditry for years but after Romney’s “brutal” defeat she has announced that she’s quitting TV and going into real estate sales.
Buchanan, the sister of arch conservative commentator and three-time candidate for the GOP nomination for President Patrick Buchanan, told the Washington Examiner that after the last election it was time for her to leave television behind.
Romney’s loss “was brutal,” Buchanan said. “I think it’s the toughest because we really expected to win it.”
Buchanan reported that two days after the election she began taking real estate classes, quickly earned her Virginia license, and soon joined the real estate firm of McEnearney Associates Inc. in McLean, Va. She also hopes to earn licenses in several nearby states
The newly minted real estate broker said that her notoriety should help her make sales. “Being somebody that they kind of know will be a real positive and, as you know, I’m just a charming person,” she said.
Real estate won’t be her sole outlet, though, as Buchanan said she intends to continue giving speeches, writing, and keeping up on the issues of the day.
But Buchanan said that for her TV is finished as it has become too dishonest. “It’s so negative and TV is more difficult than ever in the sense that it’s really not an honest debate anymore,” she said.
“I can’t just live my life going on TV and being angry all the time,” Buchanan said.
“The only end of writing is to enable the reader better to enjoy life, or better to endure it.”
