1. Is this a joke?

That is a long hard fall in his opposition to the Democratic president.

18. Dennis began his political career on the wrong side...

of the Democratic Party when he was elected to Cleveland's City Council. The first Black Mayor of Cleveland (Carl B. Stokes) was elected and Dennis led the charge of the opposition. Dennis represented Ward 7, highly ethnic and very anti-black population (scenes in the movie The Deer Hunter were filmed in Ward 7). Now that he's at FOX, it looks like he's gone back to his roots

Are they trying to get more liberals to watch?

10. No, it follows with their tradition of getting lightening rod personalities

to scream at each other from far ends of the spectrum so ratings go up...

15. I don't think Kucinich is the screaming type...

So, I wish FOX luck with that. It will be interesting to see how he handles the bat shit insane he will encounter. Except I won't be watching. FOX is poison no matter who they have on their network.

9. Well that will last all of about a week.


You have got to respect someone willing to walk into that quagmire of lies and deceit.

I wish him luck.

I wonder if he can share a stage with Palin. Wouldn't that be fun?

22. Oh come on.. you don't think he is going in there with guns blazing?

Metaphorically speaking of course



If nothing else he will be able to talk about working there after this falls apart and speak with authority about just how bad it is.

14. Dennis will certainly be their go-to liberal to attack Pres. Obama.

FOX News is good at this. They gather 'Democrats' and put 'em on their panel to mostly just attack Democrats.

You know, guys like Dick Morris (who's always referred to as a Former Advisor to Pres. Clinton) and Pat Caddell (always as 'former pollster to President Carter'), who do nothing but attack Obama and the Democrats ... from the right. But they now have one who'll happily attack him from the left! '

YAY! HARMONY!

23. This is it.

This actually makes sense. I hope he doesn't allow that to happen but think it will.

Perhaps he will at least teach the baggers the correct things to be pissed about, rather than their usual rabid nonsense. I don't think this will turn out well.

30. how about that guy who got caught with the prostitute ?

he still does a good job of defending democrats . not dick morris but some other guy who was on CNN or some other network and got fired after the hooker thing.

i will give Kucinich a chance. i wont watch it myself but look at Shepard smith, he has done well.

16. Kucinich has a long history with Fox

 

He used to be on there all the time during the Bush years. Al Sharpton too, until he got his own show.

Not surprised in the least.

25. This is further proof that Dennis was always ALL ABOUT DENNIS! What true liberal would lend.....

credibility to Fox "News"? I think you'll find that Kooch is much closer to Ron Paul than he is to Democrats, and this doesn't surprise me in the least. What a jerk!

32. As I have been telling everyone for years...

Dennis is, well Dennis.

He has some good points in that he goes to bat for the underdog, really served the people of the 10th when they had to deal with the government in anyway.

In that sense, he was the best city councilman in the House.

When ever we crossed paths, he was always gracious.

33. I only watch Al Sharpton, therefore won't watch Fox before, won't watch it now but

 

Fox makes liberals look like Tim Russert made Dennis look at that debate
(you know the one, the last one Dennis was ever at).

expect much conspiracy theory alien talk just like Tim did.

Are you sure this is not the Onion?

Especially as President Obama is doing his best NOT to call on Fox at Press conferences

looks like Fox is trying to divide and conquer

I only watch Al Sharpton on MSNBC and will continue to only watch him.

and watch Dennis continually bad mouth President Obama.

Hey, maybe he and Joe Lieberman can get together.
