DOBBS CONSIDERING RUN FOR SENATE

Rate this Entry

Media sources are reporting that former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs
is considering taking his $8 million severance package and using the funds to
finance a run for the Senate against NJ Democratic Senator Bob Menendez.
Menendez's office issued
a statement
this week regarding the speculation:



>'Senator Menendez has his nose
to the grindstone to help create an economic recovery for New Jersey families
and will not be distracted by an election three years away,' Menendez spokesman
Afshin Mohamadi told the New York Times. 'I'm sure that he would relish
eventually having an opponent from so far out of the mainstream and who has
never done a thing for the hard-working people of New Jersey, but the senator's
focus is on jobs, not Dobbs.'




[UPDATE] Apparently, Lou has bigger ambitions.

    If he runs in 2010 he may have a chance, but not in 2012! Whatever naysayers may say about the economy, unless the oil prices spike, employment recovery will be underway next year with unemployment dropping below 7% by early to mid 2012!

    Lou has said so much [cr@p] on air, it would not be hard to put together a number of anti-Lou ads. Everything from questioning Obama's birth certificate to crazy tax policies. It is a general problem for any entertainer when they enter politics. They may be popular, but they have quite a trail...

    He needs to Texas and run for KBH's seat next year. He and his accent will not play well in NJ and that too in 2012!

    Ask Grassley and Sanders to reduce or eliminated H1Bs so that more jobs can go abroad, tax revenues can get reduced and we can get draconian cuts in social security payments and education budgets and let us go through that vicious cycle again and again!

    I guess because in that job you can't be fired for telling lies. After all, both Bill Clinton and Bush survived telling lies to the American people.
