I am not a huge Lou Dobbs fan. I do not enjoy seeing an angry white guy pretending that he already does not have the best of life in America. He is wrong on immigration, but just continues to bash the issue over and over again. But now Lou Dobbs, the anchor of a prime time news hour on CNN, is thinking of announcing a run for the White House. I am not kidding! Therefore, it is time for CNN to shove him off the air. He can’t be allowed to campaign from the news channel.
As the Wall Street Journal reports Dobbs thinks others running for the Oval Office, or thinking of running, are out of touch. Yeah, right Lou. You are the only sane one. Please save us. But first, stop dying the hair Lou. Is is red…..blond…gray…white….
Friends of Mr. Dobbs say he is seriously contemplating a race for the first time, although it’s still unlikely. They spin a scenario under which the acerbic commentator would parachute into the race if Michael Bloomberg, the New York billionaire and favorite of East Coast elites, enters the field as an independent. With Hillary Clinton continuing to score badly in polls in the categories of honesty and integrity, and with the public’s many doubts about Rudy Giuliani and other GOP contenders, Mr. Bloomberg may well see an opportunity to roil the political waters by entering the race late. If so, Mr. Dobbs then sees a niche for a “fourth-party” candidate who could paint the three other contenders as completely out of touch.
I suspect Ross Perot is urging Dobbs to run. Finally there would be a candidate squirrelier than he was in 1992.
If Dobbs, an angry white guy, runs for the White House, I think he can upstage Perot.
