1. Done...
Although 28% isn't so hot, beats the s*** out of 2%!

5. Exactly. I think this poll pretty well sums up the feeling in amerika
right now. We're going to win this cycle, but the overwhelming majority is fed up with all of them. We have the next two years to back into the sheeple's good graces, if we fail again I don't know what is going to happen.

2. Dobbs (CNN-Wolf in Sheep's Clothing) is playing the
"a pox on both their houses" card. That's an attempt to prop up Rs. The disastrous situation
we're in is a result of R actions, not D inactions. How do you take any action when you have no power? By
making the disaster bipartisan he's covering for the Rs.

I don't trust Dobbs. He's too much of a blatant xenophobe.

4. I can see how you would not trust Dobbs, but if you've been paying
attention to him for the last decade or so, I don't see how you can accuse him of trying to prop up the re :puke:s.

He has been blasting away at the politiwhores of both parties for their abandonment of their constituents on every issue that has come along for many years.

Regarding his position on the ongoing illegal invasion, his views are much closer to the citizens of this country than yours. As far as I know he is the only talking head that advocates severely punishing the employers, instead of the various police-state strategies put forth by the two parties.

6. I disagree, of course.
Just watch Dobbs' interaction with any Dem apologist he has on. He's dismissive and condescending. You
never see him act that way with an R guest. He also stacks his panel of experts segments with Rs on most
nights.

Dobbs may blast employers about the illegal worker problem, but let's face it, he knows this problem isn't
going away and it isn't going to be fixed any time soon. I believe he's scoring cheap points with an issue that
demands a much more comprehensive and nuanced solution that the one he's proposing.

BTW - has Dobbs ever read an e-mail on his show that expressed a view contrary to his opinion?

I try to watch him every day, but I usually end up bailing as his prejudices get in the way too often.

7. I don't disagree, I class him with HRC as a slightly less repellent
alternative. :shrug:

To put it another way, he wasn't enough of a draw for me to keep the dish, though I agree with many of his positions. KO, Dobbs, and Comedy Central are the only things I miss, even a little.
