Lou Dobbs 2012

Feel the Nativist Resentment!

Scapegoating His Way to the White House!

Hating Immigration in a Nation of Immigrants!

You know, honestly, I hope Lou Dobbs does run for president in 2012. Like Glenn Beck, he'd only cut into Republican support, and that, of course, would be good for Obama.

Yes, let him defend his nativist fears out on the stump. Let him scapegoat Mexicans and other outsiders. Let him reveal to all, and not just to a handful of CNN viewers, just what sort of a bigot he is.

He'll have his supporters, sure, but I suspect the overwhelming majority of Americans, even in this economic climate, will be turned off by his vindictive, us-versus-them protectionism.

I'm sure there's room for him in the Republican Party. But if he prefers to wage an independent campaign, so be it. I don't think he will, but it wouldn't be "crazy," and he'd be a welcome right-wing thorn in the side of the Republican nominee, bleeding support and votes, whoever that turns out to be.

    Lou didn't take issue with immigration. He took issue with people breaking the law and breaking into the country - as we all take issue with. (dummy).

    I have many indian friends that work here legally and awaiting their legal status, legally, for 5, 6, and 7 years. They, as well as every other law abiding person, are sick of the law breaking and looting of this countries language borders and culture!

    So go away- be off with you. Leave the country.

  • You almost had me until you got to the "looting of this countries [sic]language borders and culture!"

    Fine, don't let me see you eating a Burrito or drinking a Cappuchino -- hambergers and Coke only or you're looting the "culture."

    What the hell is a language border? I speak more than one language - does that make me less of an American or does that make you less educated? Who the hell gave you the right to tell anyone anything, or does fear and cowardice and confusion and ignorance grant you some kind of superior citizenship?

    You sound like a goddamn Nazi so get the hell out of my country and don't come back, maderchod.
