Lou Dobbs: Senate, White House A Possibility
Source: AHN

Former CNN host Lou Dobbs says he is not ruling out running for Senate or making a run for the White House in 2012.

Dobbs, 64, has been answering questions about his future since leaving CNN earlier in November after being pressured by network executives to alter his style of journalism and take a more middle-of-the-road approach.

Dobbs is known to be a big critic of President Barack Obama, and is strongly anti-immigration.

The 30-year veteran said if he decides to run for U.S. Senate it will be in New Jersey, where he is a resident, and if he decides to run for the White House it will be on a third-party ticket. Dobbs has not made a decision as of yet.

Hey Lou, and Giuliani, in the Senate you are one of 100 and as a junior one you have to take your time and wait to be called upon. It is different from having your own show, or kingdom, to do as you please.

Yes, another freshman Senator found it boring and did not want to wait his turn and is now sitting in the White House but it does not mean that it will work for you. He was "fresh" - as our beloved Joe Biden said - while you, both of you, are old shoes.

2. Lou Dobbs in the white house?
There isn't one black or Hispanic person who would vote for him. Not one. Plus you put the white Dems who would vote against him and there's not a chance.

He is dreaming an impossible dream. Impossible cause it will never happen to him. If he can be thrown off a republican cable station, because the public is sick of him, how do you think he could get enough votes to even make him a contender.

Seriously, could it not be clearer that the job of President of the United States is merely a PR job to Repugs?

26. Ex-CNN anchor Lou Dobbs is considering running for president in 2012
Source: NY Daily News


Former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs has never been elected to any government office, but he said Monday hes considering a run for the White House in 2012.

During an interview on WTOP radio in Washington, Dobbs fueled rumors hes seeking a bid for public office, possibly the highest office in the land, when asked if speculation about an Oval Office bid is crazy talk.

Whats so crazy about that? Dobbs, 64, replied. Golly!

So, is it crazy talk or is it real, the radio station persisted.

Well, Ill tell you this much -- its one of the discussions that were having, he said. For the first time, Im actually listening to some people about politics.

30. Let me go throw up! But then again..
The freepers and teabaggers will love this, but they only make up 20-30% of American voters, at the very most.

I'm not worried, but there will be a lot of work to do to defeat any growth of this kind of Neaderthal thinking.

31. I don't want to see them split the crazy vote during the primary
If that happened, a less obviously crazy candidate might take the nomination. I want the GOP to nominate a crazy xenophobe ticket.

These egotistical assholes listen only to the people who praise them, to the people who make money off them, and the only people they surround themselves with....They never leave, nor go outside their bubble for truth, believing people outside their bubble must love them too, simply because they themselves believe it.

They could take plenty of votes away from a Palin/Huckabee republican duo.

End result - Democrats own the capital for eight more years.
