Skip to comments.Lou Dobbs is Such A Bozo
Posted on 05/23/2011 1:05:44 PM PDT by ml/nj
The NYC radio scene is pretty grim between 3PM when Rush goes off and 4PM when Malzberg comes on. Since I find Hannity intolerable, I switch to WOR where Malzberg will appear and have to put up with an hour of this airhead Dobbs.
I have to say that most of the time I agree with Dobbs, just as most of the time I have agreed with Hannity. But these people disqualify themselves by opening their mouths and explaining their line of reason.
Today Lou Dobbs said several times that Benjamin Netanyahu is ignorant. He said this because he thinks Natanyahu was disrespectful of Bamie, and this is beyond the pale apparently. Nothing about Obama being disrespectful of a guest coming to visit him the NEXT F*****G DAY, essentially telling him that he would have to eat s**t or die in a very public speech. This stuff cuts both ways. But even if Dobbs doesn't care and he thinks Netanyahu is wrong, that's all he would be. It hardly makes him ignorant.
And then to a caller he was berating, he essentially implied that Israel contributes NOTHING to the partnership with the United States. He's having a hard time dealing with Herman Cain now who is essentially saying the same things I'm saying here. I guess he understands that if he berated Herman Cain, that he might wind up looking like the Bozo he really is. The poor woman caller might have mentioned that Dobbs' cell phone probably wouldn't exist if it weren't for work being done in Israel. Half of the improvements mad to our weapons systems seem to come from Israel. Scientific advances, medical advances. Proportionally to the size of our population, we should be ashamed.
And WOR needs to find someone else to fill the three o'clock hour.
A breaking point has been reached, is that it?
I suppose it’s pretty disrespectful to refuse to get the hell in the gas chamber too, huh Lou?
The other day on the McGlaughin Group, big mouth yenta Eleanor Clift said, in so many words, that Bibi was a weak leader and that’s why he had to “appear” to be tough in order to impress the Israelis back home.
She’s the classic liberal idiot.
I thought I was the only one who felt this way: You know, that Hannity is a loudmouth blowhard who is an utter sellout to his Saudi masters.
After a while, you can tell he dances around certain topics that may anger his puppet masters.
I switch from Rush to Dobbs. What a disgrace he turned out to be.
Just turned back to hear Steve Malzberg now. He’ll have Ed Koch on his program.
Dobbs lost a listener, PERMANENTLY. I don’t support our enemies.
Netanyahu was very calm and respectful. Some people, that are Obammie lovers, just don’t like the fact that he made Obama look like a chump. Netanyahu is decisive. He’s accomplished. He tells it like it is. He’s responsible. He’s serious. He’s a man. He made their god look like the pathetic no-nothing that he is.
Yes. The world loves respectful, dead Jews. The ones that fight and refuse to be slaughtered, not so much.
And, apparently, the Presidency has devolved into a monarchy.
In the Commonwealth realm, Queen Elizabeth II currently serves as Head of State, for each of the member nations. People are generally deferential toward her, as she symbolizes each nation in the realm. Our respective Heads of Government are treated like the ordinary politicians they are (first amongst equals, perhaps).
LOL—have the same radio pattern but I only listen to Lou with half an ear.
What caught me was mr dobbs continued umbrage over some sort of disrespectful behaviour to president obama.... ?
now why has this upset him so ?
are others in the public media sharing the same view ?
Yep, I heard it. Will not go back to Dobbs after this. At least in CT we have "Church and State" on WTIC 1080 AM. John Rowland and Pastor Will Marotti.
Herman Cain didn't even know what the "right of return" issue is about. He suggested, entirely incorrectly, that Israel would have no problem with the "refugees" returning. I would not use Cain as an example of a person who understands the various issues surrounding Israel - at least until he takes a few refresher courses and gets the basics down.
I can only assume that he doesn't believe in a Jewish right of return to Jordan or Biblical geography.
Clowns - All of them.
Levin is the only one that is somewhat bearable, in that he at least has some qualifications to lean on.
I hear you. I reached my breaking point with Bill O aka Ted Baxter several months ago when he insulted Michele Bachmann on air to her face. I also reached my end with Sunday nights will Bill Cunningham when he tried to make the case Obama is not at all Communist related but just left-wing and dumped the caller.
You two arent’t the only ones who do not care for Mr. Hannity.
I didn’t start referring to him as “Big Head Sean” for nothing...
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing Dobbs say the other day on his show, even though I only got the tail end of it and thought he must be talking about something else.
His talking points were exactly echoed by no less than Andrea Mitchell, who apparently believes along with Dobbs that America, now that Obama is Prez, has the right to dictate to another country what its policies should be and how its history should be understood. I am through with this (yes) BOZO. Even though he always seemed refreshingly even handed and genial.
Respect is earned. No respect is earned by a man so ignorant of history and even current events that he advocates a return to 67 borders. Has Ohaha noticed what a mess Gaza is? It's a tyrannt, terrorist, torture state run by Hamas, an Iranian puppet, which has been turned into a giant gun platform for Hamas/Iran's rocket batteries. Ohaha wants to repeat this same model on all 3 sides of Israel? What a pinhead. The Palestinian people are better off under Israeli rule, and many know it. That's why Arab immigration INTO Isreal is at an all time high.
Yeah, Dobbs, this imbecile deserves our respect, or Netanyahu's. Ohaha is president, not a monarch. Frankly Netanyahu was TOO respectful of the clown. The only think Ohaha deserves is contempt which he richly earned in that disgraceful Middle East speech last week. Dobbs is just another Ron Paul-bot loser.
Dobbs is an idiot. I don’t know why Fox Business took him on. Fox Business was quickly becoming preferred viewing over Fox New for me. I miss scoreboard at 7:00. They gave David Asman’s slot to Dobbs. Big mistake because I no longer watch FBN in the 7:00 hour when I get home. They also moved Eric Bolling, my other Fox Business favorite. They should have left things as they were.
“...Bill O aka Ted Baxter...”
Good one! I had not heard that before.
Nothing more than 7-8 minutes.
I like’m then I don't....
I didn't hear that being discussed.
I really don't know much about Cain. Maybe he doesn't know much about the "right of return." My impression from what I did hear today is that when he does know about it, his judgment about it will be correct.
Mostly I listen to Rush, Beck, which many on here are iffy about, Levin, who I don’t mind anymore, Rusty Humphries or Michael Savage, because I get him live and Levin is repeated later at night on same station.
well even Rush has gone to just calling him Ted Baxter. The name has stuck.
Dobbs is an idiot.
Netanyahu is a leader of a nation, as nobama is. Neither has to bow to the other in any way.
Our commie in chief is simply trying to browbeat the Israelis into giving up on their nation and leaving without a fight. Easiest way to win a war: have the other side just surrender out of fear when all their allies abandon them.
So the media browbeats, browbeats, browbeats.
Most News Media = GRANDCHILDREN OF OLD EUROPEAN COMMUNISTS - BOLSHEVIKS.
They equate Republicans with the Tsar.
Trouble is, we had a revolution in this country that was righteous. The old bolsheviks did not read history and they don’t realize that there is no evil rich Republican guy who secretly controls the world like the Wizard of Oz. The bolshevik grandchildren, like their forebearers, simply want to assume power, i.e., take over the Tsar’s job. They think they can be a better Tsar. But the Tsar was the legitimate head of state of Russia. Now, if when they killed him and took over, if they truly provided freedom for the masses, that would be one thing. But the ruling party merely became a Tsar with different clothes, treating the masses far worse than he ever did.
So NYC bolshevik grandchildren and the left-wingers all over the world are on a never-ending pursuit of a world where their naively-flawed theories somehow magically work, so they can make everything “fair” and then earn the right for themselves to stay in power forever.
Lou Dobbs is simply part of the idiotic American political machine which thinks that it is somehow vital to preserving an American myth which is necessary to preserve America. They don’t realize - American is not about a myth. We don’t need one single talking head to preserve our national sovereignty. We don’t need Lou Dobbs inane babbling to “figure things out for us”. What we need the “free press” to do is investigative reporting, which provides citizens with information; cold, hard facts about all the myriad ways our government officials are committing criminal or Treasonous acts. Lou would make a better gameshow host, where his pursuit of advertising dollars and showmanship would not be masquerading as reporting or political commentary.
Lou is waaaaaaaaaaaay off base.
Yup, on that we agree. Cain's instincts are probably pretty good. Once he understands the issue I'd imagine he'd come to the right conclusion.
I love WOR, but Dobbs realy is clueless on this.
Gambling, Savage, Malzberg, and Mike Gallagher are really good. Malzerbg/Savage are my favs.
Look. I'm Jewish (more than most, too) and even I don't believe in some Biblical right of return. That's just not the way the world works. But virtually no one was living in the "Holy Land" according to Mark Twain's apolitical account. Jews ("Zionists") came along and decided to by up the land their from the Turks who were absentee owners there, and thought they were taking the Jews to the cleaners. These Jews continued to buy land when Britain took over; and they still try now that Israel is in charge. The Arabs who didn't sell or abandon their land are still there, except in cases of eminent domain takings which all governments engage in. The idea that anyone should give up what they purchased legal title to some goat herder who thinks his great-grandparents lived there sometime is counter to almost all property laws everywhere.
Not uncommon here but I think the “Ted Baxter” label can be applied to Obama just as well in the sense that he is capable of reading a script in a deep voice but besides that just an inept clown.
But O’Reilly fits the description too.
Koch spoke out against Obama. Said he wouldn’t vote for Obama because he doesn’t trust Obama’s guarantee to defend Israel.
Actually, Koch said he wouldn't vote for Obama, unless Obama changes his position. I was disappointed that Malzberg didn't ask Koch what what cause him to trust any such statement from Obama.
And what would Dobbs and all the other cry-babies say if Benjamin Netanyahu had told Barry to revert back to the old Mexico border to solve America’s border issues.
...maybe that’s a bad example.
A FReeper on another thread asked, ‘Can Netanyahu get a Hawaiian birth certificate and run for pres?’ Which I thought very funny.
Maybe. But what if the Arapaho Indians wanted to claim Denver?
It was Rush who first called Bill O Ted Baxter...I had to laugh, last week Orielly had the commie A-H*le Ed Asner on and he told Asner that Rush calls Orielly Ted Baxter. I did the LOL!
My guess is Obozo would have spent a few seconds pretending he has a brain and would agree.
Dittos to all you said!
Hannity’s heart in in the right place, but when he starts in on his litany on who is coming up and who will be on TV with him and the self promotions, and on and on and on, well I just can’t take it.
Lately I’ve gone to Dobbs at the 3-4 hour, and then to fearless Marlsberg at 4. Just as you do and half the radio listeners in this area.
But — the other day, after the Bibi/Bama exchange, I couldn’t believe what Dobbs was saying!! HUH? What a take on the same thing that I had seen! Since when does “the office” take precedence over “the sitter”? Since when is ‘’the sitter’’ above reproach? And Netanyahu was never disrespectful. Needless to say, I turned Dobbs off. Today, when he started in on it again, I turned him off again, and now I’m composing a note to him telling him that he is on my negative list. He can be good on most days, but this was too much. It is not as tho he was mildly showing an annoyance at Netnanyahu. He was downright vitriolic! As if to say “How DARE someone speak to my president that way?” Since when is Obama so above it all that he must be honored at all times??
Again — Dobbs view of what he saw, and his unswayed comments have made me very wary of him. What to do? Turn Shep on? AAARRGGHHH!
Koch supported GW Bush in the past. My guess is he caught plenty of crappola from his friends.
Now he’s saying he won’t vote for a republican but will stay home and NOT vote.
Not voting is exactly how NJ elected Christie. The dems hated Corzine so they stayed home.
THANK YOU!!! I’m a little late, listening to a podcast of about 20 minutes of Lou Dobb’s show on Friday, and I’m screaming at my I-pod!!! I had to see if someone had posted about this idiocy. I can’t believe he’s chastising Netanyahu for basically, being up front about the fact that he doesn’t want his nation to enter into a suicide pact. HELLO????
I thought Dobbs was smarter than this...and I agree with you about Hannity. Listening to him and his unoriginal (albeit correct) rantings makes me crazy.
Thanks for giving me a place to vent!!!!
btw, sure wish Netanyahu could come up with a Hawaiian bc. We could use someone who fights for his country.
Check out the daily Hannity live thread - if you can find it. It seldom even gets to double figures. He is certainly not a big favorite on this board.
I’m not surprised!
(God just smote my posting efforts with a lightning strike --> power outage.)
Apparently during Israel's creation, many Jews were displaced as were "Palis" (I have yet to look up the relative numbers). I suggest that it would be a bargaining chip to seek the Jewish right of return to Arab places to offset the demand from the "Palis".
(Many Christians were likely displaced from both areas (and Lebanon (which had been set up as a Christian sanctuary country ) as evidenced by the many ME immigrants to the US in the 50's and 60's.)
The Palis also claim that the land was Arab/Muslim and so rightfully belongs to them. History obviously shoots that argument down are there were countless civilizations occupying the area prior to the advent of Mad Mo'.
Eleanor Clift is a disgrace to women. Can’t ever stand anything she says and quit watching her years ago after she got a facelift to try to disguise the ugliness of her soul which was so obviously on display because of her face.
Bibi is the opposite of zero...He is a manly man in every aspect of the word and he has character—something unknown to the disgusting zero who appears so extremely gay and effeminate it is hard to not visualize him in the bedroom with his buddies, Rahm, Sinclair, Frank, Van Jones, Rev. Wright, Jennings, et al.
Yes, the sight of zero and leftists makes me puke. What comes out of their mouths is nothing but lies.
No you are NOT the only one.
No use in sending a note to Dobbs. He is too full of himself. Instead go to www.wor710.com/comments. Tell them how you feel and maybe leave a link to this thread so they can see how others feel.
I haven't watched any of the Sunday shows in years, so I haven't seen/heard Eleanor Clift in a long time. But my recollection is that she was among the most well spoken, intelligent of our opponents. I seem to remember her reacting with stunned silence when presented with obviously logical arguments. This is a lot more that I can say for most of the fools who continue on with emotional or scripted nonsense in response to such arguments.
