Yes John - Thank you - you never have to really go far in America when you want to preach hate -- you can always count on cowardly, lazy, ignorant Americans like you to fall to their knees - THEIR GOD DAMN KNEES - when someone tells them there is yet again - some group to hate - for you and others it is now Wall Street Insiders - who is that exactly - WHO ARE THESE SO-CALLED WALL STREET INSIDERS -- do you even know - do you even care -- is it anyone in a suit - or just Americans who went to college????? Oh and of course illegals - only in America could people - people - mothers, fathers, children - be called Illegal - PEOPLE ARE NOT ILLEGAL YOU IDIOT - oh and of course - the Chinese - always the Chinese - yes - he is a racist and a bigot - not to mention ignorant and cowardly - which no doubt is why you love him so very very much. And as for him bending over - like you - in order to bend over - he would have to actually be standing in the first place - which he is not anymore than you are - crawl after your hero - follow those two sagging bags he calls a rump -- he is nothing - and yet I suspect - more than you.
Oh, and John - since you seem especially stupid - what are the teabaggers right about - did they protest the doubling of the national debt under Bush - do you understand debt - what it means to actually pay a bill - or the billions we spend everyday on the interest on that debt -- the new 5 trillion in debt - under Bush - all while accomplishing nothing - NOTHING -- no, of course they didn't -- Bush was white - after 8 years of his treason - suddenly they found their voices and moo moo moo like fat stupid cows when a black man moved into the White House - naturally, to you this all makes so much sense.
Dobbs is a coward, igornant, racist, nothing of a man - but still more than any of his followers.

I only started watching news programs last year with the national election. I started out with Fox News, and then ventured out over to CNN and CSNBC. CSNBC is much too liberal and mean-spirited for me. CNN seemed generally more center-based (except for Rick Sanchez). I really started watching CNN when I found Lou Dobbs's show. Maybe that was because his views coincided with mine, which are more conservative. I feel really sad that Lou Dobbs felt he had to leave the show. I will really miss him. I hope he goes over to Fox News.

I'm not defending everything surrounding 'Tea-Baggers'. I know a few and they all strongly disliked Bush. I strongly disliked Bush. I disapproved of his policies. Bush is gone. He's no longer in charge. He's irrelevant.
Obama is relevant. He continued Bushes stupid policies only on a more massive scale. What's wrong with criticizing this? How is it 'Stupid' or racist for that matter? I actually don't strongly dislike the guy. He seems decent enough (we the public don't really know; what we see of him and prominent people in general is sanitized).
I'm not a 'Wingnut' or 'Neocon', or whatever the far left true believer con nom du jour is.

John in Boston,
Of course there is a strict separation in theory, but not in real. Some comments on National American TV are: God made me say this,God showed me the way to do this, etc. From a biblical belt preacher to a beauty pageant contestant. In Latin America politicians do not invoke the name of God in their campaigns, nor the public personalities when they talk about politics or other issues. The Catholic Church is still very powerful, but no more laws are written in "Defence of the Faith". In this sense, Latin America follows more the European example, in which religion is excluded from public life, in order to be kept private. Civil rights are then a democratic issue: whether the majority is pro or contra. Some countries do not have to use faith in order to postulate theories or disagree with them.

Nice try John - but again - the question before you is - as Bush was doubling the national debt from 5 trillion to 10 trillion - as he was starting a cowardly war based on a lie told to the world whose estimated final cost is 2 trillion - or 77,000 dollars for every man woman and child in Iraq - well, those still living - as tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians have died in this war based on a lie told to the world - where were you or the tea baggers then? Huh?
So the tea baggers you know do not like Bush - but they held no rallies or protests during his treasonous reign. Do you for one moment imagine that the most outrageous thing that has happened in the soon to be last 9 years had been under Obama - that it is his Administration that should receive protests? After less than a year in office you protest the black man - while the white, treasonous, cowardly, liar lives off the tax dollar in Texas?
If you had protested even once under Bush - protested the senseless dead, the lies, the amazing epic inexplicable waste of the US tax dollar - you might have some standing some legitimacy - but you didn't did you - oh no, you waited for the black man to take over and try to handle Bush's mess and suddenly you find you voice. You and all the tea baggers you support are just cowardly racists - who suddenly found a voice when they realized they were still on their knees after 8 years - only now it was before a black man.
You are right to be outraged - but your raggedy cowardly anger should be directed at the mirror - not at the White House.

Oh and John - thanks for at least not defending your love of Dobbs - that, I suspect, would have been painful for us all.
