Looks like going rogue is becoming more popular than ever 🙂 His comments on today’s show infer a possible entrance into politics. He met with Roger Ailes of Fox in September. Anything is possible. I think this is good news and it’s about time Dobbs got the stink of CNN off him. I’m sure we’ll see him somewhere soon, continuing to make a difference. dobbs

Lou Dobbs to Quit CNN

Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, said Wednesday that he is leaving the cable news channel effective immediately.

Sitting before an image of an American flag on his television set, he said “some leaders in media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond the role here at CNN and to engage in constructive problem solving as well as to contribute positively to the great understanding of the issues of our day.”

“I’m considering a number of options and directions,” Mr. Dobbs added.

    Lou Dobbs was pilloried for daring to talk about Obama’s birth certificate. It’s a crying shame, though, that he and so many others looked solely to that issue, when there is another more important Constitutional issue related to eligibility. Obama does not meet the Article II, Sec. 1, Cl 5 requirement that candidates for President be a “natural born citizen.” Ignorantly, many people think they know the meaning of the term when in fact they don’t. Perhaps the easiest way to explain the difference is by looking at these two simple graphics. THIS is cause enough to boot Obama out of office before 2012.

    Regarding the lawsuit cited in my first post, this is the correct direct link. If you post my comment, perhaps you could just replace the indirect link with the one below:

    I don’t know how lou put up with that guy who reads the letters. I forget his name but he is a despicable person. As for Lou I hope he has success in the future. I did not always agree with him but people clearly knew where he stood. My best guess is he will end up at the the fox business network.

    In parting, the lying, spinning rats at CNN mischaracterize Lou Dobb’s viewpoint on ILLEGAL immigration as “anti-immigration.” Yes, they DO think the American public is that stupid. They’re partly correct: the typical CNN-watcher is that stupid.

    Politico ~ Michael Calderone:

    CNN’s John King will be taking over the 7 p.m. spot vacated last night by Lou Dobbs in early 2010, the network announced Thursday.

    King, who host’s Sunday’s “State of the Union” will helm a political program leading into Campbell Brown’s prime-time show. He will continue hosting the Sunday show until early next year. The move reflects the network’s stated ambitions to be viewed as non-partisan in the evenings, as opposed to MSNBC and Fox, which boasts more outspoken commentators on the left and right. King’s direct competition at 7 p.m. will be Fox’ s Shepard Smith, who anchors a hard newscast before Bill O’Reilly takes over, and a repeat of “Hardball” on MSNBC.Given Dobbs’ opinionated presence on air, CNN could never fully make the argument that they were the network of straight news at night.

    “I don’t come to the table with an ideological bias,” King told POLITICO by phone from Montana. “I’m fascinated by all sides of these issues.”

    King, who was approached by management a few days ago about taking the 7 p.m. slot, said that he hopes the new show will do what a lot of cable news show’s don’t, which is “actually explaining things, peeling back the pages.”

    CNN president Jon Klein, in a statement said that “the program will reflect what CNN is all about: straight facts from our anchors and the widest range of opinions from across the political spectrum,” CNN president Jon Klein said in a statement.

    “John has enthralled CNN viewers with his vast political knowledge, and he has spent the past year reporting from beyond the Beltway on pressing policy issues and the real people they impact,” he continued. “Every night, he’ll share his passion and his insights about what is really going on in Washington and across America.”

    Lou should have great sucess whereever he lands. I wouldn’t be surprized to see hin pop up as a guest on Fox a few times and then get a slot. The news mischaracterizes his association with the so-called “birhters”. I heard him say that he believes Obama was born in Hawaii, but says (and I agree) Obama should release the “long form” birth certificate, and get it over with. At that point he could say he has been transpearant, and then the wackos could dummy up all the phony stuff they want. Of course they would say the Hawain authorities were in on a conspiracy, but that’s going to happen.
    I also think Lou could do well in politics. A run for the Senate would shake things up a bit. Good luck to him.

    I think with open borders and millions of non-Americans in this country, we lost and are losing our culture and language that has been part of this country for hundreds of years. Our laws are in English, but our congress will not make English our official language. It’s like we used to have a value of fairness in this country. How do you feel if you stood in line to purchase your groceries at the supermarket, and someone suddenly stands in front of you in line? Then suddenly you complain and the cashier ignores you. Then suddenly, another person gets in front of you. You would probably complain, or move to another line. Lets suppose your complaints are ignored, and you do move to another line. But, in the other line people get in front of you in the line. You look around to find someone who is in charge, but cannot find anyone. What you do find is a crowed of people cutting in line and not caring what they are doing, in fact, they feel justified! This is what is happening to our grade schools, social security, welfare benefits, social programs, every program run by the government that was a safety net for it’s citizens but are used and abused by illegal, law braking non-citizens. So, now you may not feel the effects of these abuses, but these programs are going to either fail because “the system” was never set up to do this, or of course, the government is going to do what their only short sighted solution has always been; that is rob the law abiding citizens with charging more taxes.

    HA – I knew as soon as he started veering off the line he’d be attacked. Attack, attack, attack. Then blame Bush. Then, attack, attack, attack. Then laugh at opponent. Then blame bush. Begin again.

    Good for him. It was interesting to me, to be channel surfing and come along to Lou and see him questioning (I don’t recall what it was he was questioning, I just found it intersting that here’s Lou, on CNN, questioning). Figured it wouldn’t be long……

    Agreed…he will show up on Fox where all the folks in rehab show up and will be greated with open arms.

    Perhaps he’ll write a CNN tell-all – ‘course we get some of that inside scoop from a couple other conservatives who came over like Chris Plante and Beck (but until Beck cleans up his act and uses the proper language of UNalienable rights v INalienable rights … I only take him as interesting, not serious. Glenn looks a bit pompous from time to time and likes to interject his own personal stories when he portends to be interviewing someone about their story, but I digress. Still a fan, just a bit skeptical).
