Lou Dobbs Cites Obama As Downfall!

| Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

wenn5187253.jpg

As surprising as Lou Dobbs' resignation was from CNN, his reasoning is even more shocking!

The CNN anchor claims that as soon as President Obama was elected, advocacy journalism was no longer on top and his ratings began to fall. He believes that after the election there was a tonal change in the air on CNN.

"You know, I discern more of a difference between then, which was under the Bush administration whom I was criticizing, and now, when it is the Obama administration and an entirely different tone was taken," said Dobbs.

Although he never heard from CNN execs that he was making the network look bad, he left because he could no longer deal with the network's push to avoid anchor opinions during prime time.

But, we haven't seen the last of him!

"I'm going to remain - I can guarantee you 100 percent - I'm going to remain in the in the public arena," he continued.

Oh goody!

    Blaming the evil "liberal" media, uh?

    I'm surprised he's not blaming illegal immgrants, too.

    Cheer up lou, you'll soon be FauxNews, just like your rage-filled, nutcase buddies

    Although I seldom agreed with anything that came out of his mouth he did add a kind of balance to CNN that I believe is lacking at both MSNBC and Fox. I personally prefer my journalists not be be activists and my opinion show hosts not to pretend to be journalists.

    this only goes to support the fact that this guy is irrational and full of shit

    Don't worry Lou Fox News always has room for all of CNN's rejects cough Glenn Beck.

    Yep, not the racist, ignorant, factually incorrect garbage that spewed non stop from your fat mouth, it was 'Obama.' A moron right to the end!

    cry baby!!!

    Lou has no integrity. He will state things as fact, when they are really just lies. "The News" shouldn't be opinions, it should be factual information. Thank goodness CNN is gravitating toward more fact based content. Lord knows Fox could use some help with that.



  12. 12

    Duh…the Obama administration has been trying to control the media since day one. Freedom of speech is becoming a thing of the past.



  13. 13

    You mean CNN didn't mind Dobbs' criticisms when they were aimed at a Republican President, but now that the exact same criticisms are targeting a left wing Democrat, they push the guy out?

    "I am shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!"

    C'mon, CNN is very biased as a news source.



  14. 14

    Why is it that no one can criticize the Obama administration? It is obvious that the media is bias. Why can't we hear BOTH sides?



  15. 15

    Lou stood against illegal immigration…There is a HUGE difference between an immigrant and a illegal immigrant. Our country's infrastructure can't even take care of us that are leagal citizens let alone all the illegals flooding in. I have a friend from Europe who has paid thousands of dollars to become a legal citizen and went through a ton of bullshit. But it's ok for people from Mexico and South America to sneak in illegally?!?!?! I don't think so. Rules are rules.

    Obama is different from Bush??? Really, Lou??? Incisive, old man, tell us more….

    Just because someone is against illegal immigration does not make them racist.. It means you have sense enough to understand that there are rules to be followed. Hey lets all just go migrate to Canada illegally and see if they can handle all of us. We are the only country dmb enough to allow illegals to knowingly stay here.



  18. 18

    All of these ignorant comments are coming from people who probably never watched a news show in their lives. The venom coming from most of you is shocking and dismaying to read. Why can't a newsman point out that the "Emperor has no clothes"? Obama is an empty suit and thank God there are people out there willing to proffer an opposing viewpoint. Otherwise this country would turn 180 degrees and no one would even know it happened until it is too late. Wake up people and pay attention.

    He was smart to leave CNN the ratings are way down! Not what it once was!

    Lou Dobbs is a hate mongering d-bag. He was asked to leave because of his continued support of anti-immigrant organizations, that promoted hate for any Mexicans, as well as his deluded views that Obama is not an American citizen. Good riddence.

    "You know, I discern more of a difference between then, which was under the Bush administration whom I was criticizing, and now, when it is the Obama administration and an entirely different tone was taken," said Dobbs."

    Um, no shit, Bush lied us into a war with no end, was asleep at the wheel on 9/11 and Katrina. He also spent our surplus into a defecit and made a stupid tax cut from it.

    Then nutjobs started attacking Obama BEFORE he entered office. Back in November LAST YEAR, Rush Limbaugh was already calling it the "Obama Recession" despite him not even being the President at the time.

    So of course the tone SHOULD have changed. Obama isn't Bush and he didn't fuck everything up. Christ, didn't anybody stop to think that maybe Bush DESERVED that criticism?



  31. 31

    Re: gimlet123 – Really? Where were these complaints when Bush had everyone left of Ann Coulter standing in "Free Speech Zones". Note how none of the teabaggers have been shuffled over. Oh, wait, it's a different standard when its a Democrat in office.



  32. 32

    "Lou Dobbs is a hate mongering d-bag. He was asked to leave because of his continued support of anti-immigrant organizations, that promoted hate for any Mexicans"

    No, he didn't– criticizing ILLEGAL immigration (notice how all these guys leave that part out), and pointing out the blunt fact that much if it is from Mexico, that the Mexican government encourages it because they get sent money from the US which props up their economy, and pointing out that our government, no matter the administration, has done nothing, is not racist. Labeling it racism is a tactic of the far left, and I'm sick of it. It's a way of censoring and stifling debate on a very important topic. Instead of dealing with the issue based on facts and logic, you scream racism and everyone shuts up…it's gotten old and it's gotten tired. Can't muster a decent argument? Shout Racism! and watch everyone dive under the covers.



  33. 33

    He's absolutely right. It's perfectly OK, and even considered "cool" to make fun of Bush (and there certainly was plenty to make fun), but Obama is totally "hands off". You can't possibly critisize anything Obama does because he is the "great black hope". If you do anything other than kiss his ass then you are a racist. So much for objective journalism.

    will blatantly be on fox soon enough LOL



  35. 35

    Oh give me a break! His racist and horrible views were the reason he started to lose viewers and whatnot. And he was making CNN look very bad indeed when they are trying so hard to be "fair and balanced". This guy needs to just go away forever.



  36. 36

    Really Dobbs?? That is the best excuse you could find??? PLEASE!!!!!!!! You are a stupid ignorant who used his time on TV to hate on people and to give YOUR OPINIONS as if they were facts. Go take an ethics class before you can say anything on TV again. Get your facts straight and prove what you say



  37. 37

    Lou Dobbs you suck, why not just admit it. People who blame other people for their misfortune have severe mental problems.



  38. 38

    News should be impartial and unbiased period! Anchors should report the facts and leave their own opinions at home but that's not gonna happen.

    Re: Beauceron – Yes, illegal immigration undoubtedly is a problem but Dobbs wants to see both illegal AND legal immigrants deported. THAT'S racsim!

    Nothing about Sarah and O?

    GOOD, because the media has become LAME in covering anything that they want to keep hidden, such as St. Obama's poor job performance (I felt the same about W's job performance.)

    Being against illegal immigration is not racist. I don't care where you are from, if you are here illegally then get the fuck out.



  44. 44

    Funny that all you pot smoking liberal who are supposedly are all for freedom of speech and were raised by pot smoking hippies from the 60's are now turning your rights all over to Obama. You are amiling as he is taking away all of our freedom of speech. Everything is all good unless you don't agree with the GOVERNMENT!!! Wake up liberals….who is going to pay for all this shit? You don't care that you are losing your freedoms????

    We can't even say Meryy Christmas anymore for God's sake!



  45. 45

    SO HAPPY he's leaving CNN.

    haha he should be speidi's grandpa. imagine what their dinner conversation would be like…so ignorant.



  46. 46

    and i'm tired of hearing complaints that obama is failing just because he is not "magically" changing everything overnight.

    you people are SO stupid and ignorant–go read about health care and current issues before sitting on your lazy dumb ass and complaining. do you know that financial crisis now is rooted from the 1980's deregulation Reagan period? why do you expect it to be fixed in one year?



  47. 47

    Shut up, and go appreciate those 8 million severance dollars



  48. 48

    Lou Dobbs, how white of you. You're just embarrassing.

    Re: Gary78
    Illegal immigration is ruining this country, most specifically California. Lou Dobbs is married to a Mexican you
    left wing parrot morons.
    There is nothing racist about wanting to maintain borders
    on our nation. The Mexicans and South Americans are LAUGHING at you libtards…



  57. 57

    Some people just can't handle the truth.

    Dr. Utopia is already leading to the downfall of this country. DUm@ss policies, STUPID appointees to government, bankrupting the country with his Messiahcare program, idiot Pelosi and Reed…..the list can go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on……………..

    What a dick!

    Lou Dobbs is an independent. He is RIGHT on most issues and I hope to see him run for office.

    The who, what, where, when and why of news is and should be a completely different animal than editorializing or opinion. Dobbs will move into the latter arena, and he does it with a big, fat pocketbook. A change is as good as a rest.

    He sucks. This is the voice of someone who has seen that not all inmigrants are illegal alliens. That most of them are working and lovable people looking for a better life. He surely has some different american roots, and where you come doesn´t mean anything, the most important is who you are.

    He is an idiot looser. Fuck you.
