Now, he should move to Iran where his kind of lunatic seem to flourish. While he's at it he can take Limbaugh and Beck with him...

I actually liked Lou Dobbs. Many times I disagreed with him, but found him middle of the road, not with the Republican's or Democrats. He could be over-the-top, but he took no crap from politicians, whereas a lot of these newsmen/women placate one side or the other depending on their political affiliation.
Goodbye and good riddance Dobbs. I used to like you and agreed to disagree with you about half the time. However, when you were lapping at the pu#$y of Ann Coulter, of ALL people, I knew you went over to the dark side and have now been consumed by it. So long Dobbs - don't let the door hit you on the a** on your way out. The sooner the better you idiot.

"Whom the Gods would destroy they first make mad" -- goodbye Dobbs - you debased yourself, your profession, and your country with some of the most cowardly, hate-filled, lies this country has ever had to endure. Instead of your great good fortune making you another Cronkite - empowering you to give voice to reason, to dignity, to honesty, to the great promise that is America -- your lack of breeding and simple decency made you choose the lazy hate-filled course that is usually reserved for the stupid and the bitter -- you gave America another McCarthy - spouting lazy lies - indifferent to the destruction to innocent human lives they were surely to cause.
May you have many long days ahead to ponder the nothing you made of your life.

What a lying sack of shit. He knows that he's going to Fox, as do all who work in the media. CNN let him go because he was the lead in to a sinking ship. Maybe they'll bring some life to a once relevant station.
Dobbs showed his true colors when he mocked those who protested the immigration which hunt, for waving their flags for not being American. What a douche.

I worry about this country. Yes, you can disagree with Dobbs however he reported on things other news outlets did not like China's espionage and the costs of illegal immigration. Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News and News Corp., is married to a Chinese woman. If he goes to Fox they will not let him report on China the way he did at CNN.

Get beyond the politics. Immigration and political correctness are two big threats to gay rights. Religion... Catholicism, Evangelism, Mormonism, Islam are very ANTI-GAY. They are spreading... due to immigration from Latin America, breeding in Utah and the southern states. Islamic influence among the African American community, and refusal of the government to racially profile and investigate those of Middle Eastern descent leave us and America at risk. Lou Dobbs is harmless. Liberalism and Conservatism hurts us both. RETURN to the CENTER. Be independent.

I believe he just told us he is going to run for office.

Well Dobbs is abandoning a rapidly sinking ship, i.e. CNN. CNN's ratings ACROSS THE BOARD are horrific. Sit-com re-runs and public access channels get better ratings than CNN.
There are things I agree and disagree with Dobbs on. He is absolutely correct regarding ILLEGAL immigration; it is a DISASTER economically (depresses wages, which of course big business loves), huge public service spending, especially in border states (California essentially has collapsed because of uncontrolled,massive illegal immigration and a population flight of middle class American citizens out of the state) and socially (when 40 plus % of VIOLENT criminal prisoners in California are 'Illegal' THAT'S A BIG FUCKING PROBLEM.)
I AM NOT ANTI-'LATINO'......I don't indiscriminately dislike, hate ANYONE because of their ethnicity, race, gender, ET AL I was raised in a predominately 'Latino' neighborhood(s)
Dobbs IS MARRIED to a Mexican-American woman and they have 4 kids together; his children are part 'Latino'......I SERIOUSLY DOUBT HE'S 'ANTI-LATINO'.
It is a disaster to allow anything but very limited immigration when an economy has collapsed as it has in America and elsewhere, and those illegally in the country should be removed pronto. They are legitimally one of the causes of high unemployment for Americans, REGARDLESS IF THOSE AMERICANS ARE WHITE, BLACK, ASIAN OR 'LATINO'. American citizens are competing for scarce jobs with millions of illegals. ANYBODY WITH HALF A FUCKING BRAIN, REGARDLESS OF THEIR ETHNIC/RACIAL BACKGROUND, CAN SEE THIS IS WRONG AND A SOCIAL DISASTER. Certainly, Latin American nations wouldn't and don't tolerate it. Mexico, ironically, and many Mexicans, treat Latin Americans and others who must travel through Mexico to reach the U.S., like shit.
Dobbs is also right about the trillions spent on bailing out Wall Street. HOW MANY READING THIS THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO BAILOUT AIG, GOLDMAN, ET AL? I certainly fucking don't and I'm not a 'Wingnut' or 'Moonbat'.

I do not agree with Will. Latin America is a very catholic region, but the separation between State and religion is much more clear in our countries than in the US. There has been lot of progress in what concerns to civil rights. Buenos Aires city had the first partnership for gay people in Latin America, much before than the US. Countries like Ecuador and Uruguay recognise gay partnerships and benefits (yes, the whole country, not only a state of the union). There is a lot still to do, but the gay and civil rights issue is discussed more and more in public, but specially since our Mother Land, Spain, approved the whole same-sex marriage as a legal procedure, redefining the old concept of marriage. Most immigrants who come to the US belong to poor and uneducated parts of our countries, and their opinion is not the one of the majority, like that one of your conservative states. The battle is hard, but we are winning, and some countries like Peru or Argentina will have soon domestic partnerships, and the Catholic Church do not have any saying in how the government laws are made. There are some sad cases, like Venezuela and Cuba, where gay rights are still non-existent, but we all hope this will change.

I clicked play, simultaneously proceeded to the comments with the thought that he is FAUX bound. Nearly through the comments he was still blabbering... Maybe if he got to the point sooner, he'd be a better newsman

Lou was the only voice of reason on CNN. I can't stand Fox and outside of Morning Joe can't stand MSNBC. I appreciated Lou's balanced approach to issues; especially his full analysis of HealthCare programs across the world. He offered no opinion just the basic facts surrounding the programs in each country.
He was one of the only news men out there calling illegal immigrants what they are. Criminals. I joined and participate in NumbersUSA because of Lou. Killing any possibility for Amnesty will be his best achievement.

There is strict separation of church and state in the United States. There is no official state religion. That doesn't mean there can be no mention of God, ET AL., (a vocal minority think otherwise) it just means no single religion can be officially recognized and placed above others. BY A WIDE MARGIN, most Americans (like most Latin Americans) are Christian. I'm agnostic. I personally don't care, for example, if 'Christmas' not the 'Holidays' is celebrated because I recognize most people are Christian and it's an integral part of western culture. I do object when it's used to discriminate against others, like homosexuals.

Given how Dobbs positioned himself as an "independent" over the past 3 or 4 years, I think he is going to don the tea bagger mantle and run for office. I know there was a website around a year and a half ago seeking Dobbs to run for president. His rhetoric seems to be right in line with the new political tea bagging party.
Posted by: DLRnATL | Nov 12, 2009 12:50:51 PM
The 'Tea-Baggers' are right. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT F'ING MIND WANTS TO BE TAXED MORE? WHO?? WHO IN THEIR RIGHT F'ING MIND WANTS TO BAIL-OUT MORE BUSINESSES? WHO??
It has NOTHING to do with gay civil rights. Gay and bi men and woman are taxed to death and nickle and dimed just like str8s. WHY wouldn't they get as equally pissed off?
Posted by: John in Boston | Nov 12, 2009 5:38:21 PM
Illegals are criminals.
please go back home.

Dobbs speaks out against:
2) ILLEGAL immigration that causes major economic and social disruptions for the average citizen
3) Un-fair trade practices, especially vis-a-vis China, and how it has hurt the U.S. and average American citizen.
He's racist and bigoted towards wealthy Wall Street insiders, Illegal aliens, and communist Chinese. How dare he, the bad, bad old racist cracker. Why doesn't just stfu and bend over further?
