Laura Ingrahm Talkshow

Posted on 03/05/2009 6:50:19 AM PST by spiderfern

Just heard Laura ask Larry Kudlow if it was true he was considering running against Dodd in Connecticut next election. He said, he's thinking strongly about it. Wouldn't that be good news???

The Dems will bring up his drug use, even though Obama did “blow” himself.

I think Zero was snorting it off Larry Sinclair’s ass in the back of the limo. At least that’s what I read in the NY Times.

He'd be running against one of the most debauched men in the Senate. Dodd was Teddy's running mate and sandwich bottom. I don't think that Kudlow's past will be any problem.

Rats can’t use that argument now that Obama is President. A Lib brought that up on a local talk radio program yesterday when discussing Rush. He was slammed by the talk show host and had no reasonable response. Hard to attack anyone for drug use when our President is an admitted coke user.

Is Obama still a user? Hair samples, anyone?

I’m a fan, but after hearing Kudlow practically tell Laura we’re almost in a recovery, I don’t think even *I* would vote for him.

That was 15 years ago - and it’s as relevant today as it ever was. The man is dangerous. If he’s elected, we’re all Doomed. Doomed, I tell ya.< /libdrivel>

If anybody can name anybody in the financial media who was more of a denier of economic reality in late 2007 and early 2008 than Kudlow — and that includes his fellow staffers at CNBC, and Steven Moore at the WSJ — make your case here.

He also was completely on the socialism bandwagon for the first couple of bailouts.

Kudlow claims to be an "evangelical" [or at least a "born-again"] Christian.

If he stays true to these professed principles, and runs as a pro-life candidate, then he couldn't be elected as a dog catcher in Connecticut.

Didn’t know that about Kudlow—I’ve heard “glowing reports” about his financial abilities past 10 years.

My thoughts while listening to the show—Laura tried to sound positive, however think I could detect the “skepticism” in her voice!?!

“I’m a fan, but after hearing Kudlow practically tell Laura we’re almost in a recovery,”

That’s just the comment of a guy too wrapped up in the theory of economics. Looking at a lot of these companies, their stock prices are way below their earnings/business models. Unfortunately, investing and the economy don;t just run on logic, they run on emotion. and when nobody with any money has any faith in Zero and his marxist agenda, the economy will not recovery soon.

Run on economic policies ONLY! We need to separate economic politics and religion when running for a congressional office in most areas of the country. It just does not sell for the majority. Don't give up or hide your religion, it is part of who and what you are. You will have a shot at winning if you don't make it the centerpoint or let your opposition make it the focus of your campaing.

He has been sober for a number of years. Former cocaine addict.

He openly admits it. God saved him. Bill Buckley helped him a lot, too.

Can't do that - if Kudlow is true to his self-professed "born again" principles, then he has to run as a pro-life candidate, which will immediately be used by the Dodd campaign [i.e. the MSM] to paint Kudlow as "anti-abortion".

Don't give up or hide your religion, it is part of who and what you are.

But at the same time, it is part of who and what the voters of the state of Connecticut are NOT.

Connecticut [like all of New England] is now populated by a majority of nihilists.

And pretty much by definition, nihilists are anti-life.

You can't sell pro-life politics to anti-life people - it just won't work.

So either Kudlow has to betray his "born again-ness" [his self-professed spiritual rebirth] or else he has to accept that he cannot win an election in the state of Connecticut - his candidacy will be doomed before it is ever even announced.

Remember the House falling scene when he would introduce the naysayer? Now he has been vindicated.

Sorry Larry, this is not the Goldilocks economy.

Kudlow while not perfect would be quite an improvement

I thought Kudlow converted from Judaism to Catholic.

Kudlow may be the first act just to soften up Dodd and expose the weaknesses in his campaign staff...

Lets see how the Doddtards handle this interesting rumor...

Kudlow was baptized Catholic in 1997.
