Lou “Shermanesque” Dobbs in Detroit

By December 14, 2007Dobbs Watch

Dobbs WatchMichael Barone says Lou Dobbs might run for President? So reports Newsbusters.org. You know he just wants the attention.

We note that Detroit Free Press business columnist Carol Cain interviewed the CNN personality during his recent trip to Michigan. So what about that presidential buzz? Dobbs:

“I’m an advocacy journalist,” he said. “I cannot imagine being a candidate for any office and certainly not president…”

Phew. Thanks, Lou, for finally dispelling all that political blather (no offense, Mr. Barone), which appeared to be nothing more than reporters stroking an uncontrolled ego.

But, wait, Dobbs had something else to add? “I would be the candidate of last resort.”

Aww, ick. He’s still autostroking.

Elsewhere, more keen political insight from the CNN pundit:

On Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm: “I think she is terrific and is one of the most engaged and capable chief executives of any state in the union. She’s facing more challenges than any other governor in this country. I give her high marks in a difficult job.”

From the New York Times political blog back in October:

Unemployment in Michigan is 7.4 percent, the highest in the country, where the average is 4.6 percent. And the size of the labor force keeps shrinking.

Out of desperation, Jennifer Granholm, Michigan’s Democratic recently signed an increase of 11.5 percent in the income tax and expanded the state’s 6 percent sales tax to include some business services.
