Lou Dobbs, Focusing on Senate, Caves on Illegal Immigrants


Former CNN blowhard Lou Dobbs has scaled back his political ambitions. After mulling a Presidential run, Dobbs now appears focused on the Senate. His spokesman says the White House “a long way off, but if he did run for office there’d have to be an intermediary step, such as the [Robert] Menendez seat” in New Jersey.

As there are more than 1.4 million Hispanic voters in Jersey, Dobbs is changing his tune on the Mexican menace that has been one of his reliable rabble-rousing schticks:

He recently told Telemundo [!] that he now supports limited amnesty for illegals. “We need the ability to legalize illegal immigrants under certain conditions,” he told his new amigos. “Whatever you have thought of me in the past, I can tell you right now that I am one of your greatest friends and I mean for us to work together.”

¡Ay caramba! Lou Dobbs caving to NAFTA? The Minuteman Project says they’ll “watch him for several months before drawing a conclusion,” probably through a rifle scope. But if Dobbs is serious, the anti-immigrant crowd will soon need a new spokesnut. Stormfront should start soliciting video applications pronto.
