Though I do enjoy Lou;s commentary on most subjects, I do also believe that his position of criticism of the current government on almost every level is a good part of his "schtick", and has proven to boost ratings considerably.
I am in agreement with his commentary on several subjects, and some I am not and realize it is all part of the ratings game and being Lou Dobbs.
He is gaining a larger audience now more than ever, as more people become upset with the war and all the other good stuff the Bush administration has brought us. Is he for real? Does he really feel the way he claims to. Who knows. Hard not to become cynical of people in power these days.
