Conservative pundit and radio host Laura Ingraham says it’s time for older politicians who claim to be conservative – but, who’ve been in office too long – to “move on.”

Appearing on Tuesday’s “Fox and Friends” television program, Ingraham said that many politicians who have been in office for decades have lost touch with average Americans because they’ve become too caught up in the world of politics:

“It’s time for a new generation of conservatives and thinkers to come forward who connect with the upset and the concern of the regular working person in the United States.

“When you’re in Washington for decades and your whole life is shuttling between think tank and fundraiser, and lobbyist event, you lose touch with the people. Sometimes, you lose touch from where you came.

“And, I think it’s time for a lot of these people just to move on. They clearly don’t understand that you can’t campaign on repealing Obamacare and then, ten months later, say, “Oh, you know, that was just too hard.”
