  • Lou Dobbs for the Senate?

    Well, well...the #1 enemy of illegal immigration, Lou Dobbs may run for office in NJ. But now he's quickly backtracking from his previous position against illegal Immigration to one of a path for legalization! He's certainly got the political flair down right LOL

    Dobbs Reaches Out to Latinos, With Politics in Mind

    Former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs, pondering a future in politics, is trying to wipe away his image as an enemy of Latino immigrants by positioning himself as a champion of that fast-growing ethnic bloc.

    Mr. Dobbs, who left the network last week, has said in recent days that he is considering a third-party run for a New Jersey Senate seat in 2012, or possibly for president. Polls show voters unhappy with both parties, and strategists believe Mr. Dobbs could tap populist anger over economy issues just as Ross Perot did in the 1990s.

    First, though, Mr. Dobbs is working to repair what a spokesman conceded is a glaring flaw: His reputation for antipathy toward Latino immigrants. In a little-noticed interview Friday, Mr. Dobbs told Spanish-language network Telemundo he now supports a plan to legalize millions of undocumented workers, a stance he long lambasted as an unfair "amnesty."

    I'd say he's got a lot of groundwork to make up in this area . . . and many others. Talk about a hypocrite?

      Lou Dobbs has gone too far regarding his anti-illegal immigrant rhetoric to ever win any support from the immigrant community (much less from anyone else but the very far, far, right extremists).

        There are no permanent friends or enemies in politics, just temporary loyalties. So much so that the case in point is a republican.

          Not that others project superiority, but rather it might be that some choose to be inferior - not necessarily on intent but by destiny.

            While you can't be short, you need a long torso to get a good view of yourself in a pool of water. Ok, in modern times, in a huge wall mirror, to admire yourself - narcissism personified.

              It's stale and boring, but it's a matter of looking at it half empty or half full.

                Let's see how intellectually superior we can seem. Come back with something really good this time. Break out that thesaurus and find some obscure words to pull from. Anautarchia didn't quite make the impression. The trailer dwellers here will go oooh aaaah ouchhhhh poooh-poooooh, what kind of word is that? They might even do a google search on it just to know what was said. Remember, as some said, there are those destined to be inferior and narcissistic in their ways. Might as well keep trying to remind them. Who's the hypocrite????"

                  I also see the need to go back to basics. Copying your post and changing one word is for what purpose? Did you realize that one word's intent or the direction of the posts? I'm sure not.

                  Here it is:

                  Did you remember my word Anathema and your Anautarchia?

                  Main Entry: boo·mer·ang
                  Pronunciation: \?bü-m?-?ra?\
                  Function: noun
                  Etymology: Dharuk (Australian aboriginal language of the Port Jackson area) ***arin?
                  Date: 1825

                  1 : a bent or angular throwing club typically flat on one side and rounded on the other so that it soars or curves in flight; especially : one designed to return near the thrower
                  2 : an act or utterance that backfires on its originator


                  Haha! I love the second meaning.

                  Well, no plagiarism. Those "quotation marks" before and after the copied post did the trick. Hence, no flattery either. Mockery is so much closer.

                    I used the word 'Anautarchia' to mock your post. I hoped you might catch the meaning by virtue of it also being an 'A' word and being inappropriately placed within a sentence, just like yours.

                    Have you ever thrown a boomerang? Know what their used for? Before they come back to the one who launched it, it hits it's intended target. Quite often in the head. I guess it pays to have a thick cranium.
                    At first glance, when I saw the word 'anathema', I read the word enema - lol!!!!! Anathema is not a word one sees very often. I think if one of my friends were to use this word on me, I would just have to bust out laughing.

                      First it was davdah vs OldE now it's davdah vs RN. Pass me another beer, this will be a long one!

                      One day a doctor had to be the bearer of bad news when he told a wife that her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct. Not more than five minutes later, he heard her reporting to the rest of the family that he died from a "massive internal f-art."

                        "... as a way to talk down to Fed?" I don't think so. It's a way to talk down to you repubs how you loath to change the dysfunctional status quo on everything.

                        You used that word to mock my post? Tee-he-he! Now you did the connection side by side "after" I did it. Haha! Like WMD and al-Qaeda connection in Iraq???

                        Have I ever thrown a boomerang? Many-many times. I have a sis in law in the outback. But that's beside the point. Thick headed? Thick cranium? Hmmm.. harsh words. The anger radiates. Too early in the day. I seem to have hit someone in the head. Haha!

                        Oops! I seem to have ruffled some GOP feathers there, ProudUSC, haha! A bitter attempt at humor and mockery that turned sour? It radiates too. Better luck next time.

                          Hate to disappoint, but it takes more to ruffle my feathers these days than reading empty words on a web forum. I don't get my jollies trying to outwit strangers in cyberspace. I'll leave that for others who appear to have self-esteem issues.

                          By the way, my original remarks regarding Lou Dobbs in this thread weren't flattering. By your response, I don't think you quite understood that.

                            Hey wait.. listen. I thought you said I should win cases (true or not)?! I'm polishing up on my argumentative acumen then, if that's the case. Honestly, that's all I do. In doing so, one doesn't wear cotton gloves. Not meant to be. Should be boxing gloves and if one can sneak in some stones inside of them, so much the better. If one doesn't do it, one would be left out, most everyone does it in the arena. If I appeared harsh on this forum, kindly take my apologies. That's not my intention. Yet if one looks down summarily upon a certain group of people that I closely relate with (undocumented aliens, some workers, minorities), then I will never be too kind either. I'll talk down to you in return if you want to call it that way.

                              Empty words on the web, don't get this, don't get that, no time for ilw, got better things to do, etc.. but then??? we can't hold ourselves back to post, can we?
