Lou Dobbs is one of the most trusted financial and political experts on television. His combination of experience and smarts has catapulted his show, Lou Dobbs Tonight, to the top of all cable business programming shows for more than 52 straight weeks.
Dobbs won his audience over by exposing the incredible damage Barack Obama was doing to the economy, our nation’s respect among in the world community, and to the moral and religious fiber of our country while he was president.
He also was among the first, if not the first, serious TV political or business commentator to support Donald Trump after he announced his intention to run for president. Dobbs makes his home near New York City and he knows Trump and the fiber he’s made of.
He had also grown sick of watching the Republican establishment deliberately allow the Democrats to push through their agenda. He expected that Trump would change that and nothing Trump’s done since being elected president has disappointed him.
But Obama’s refusal to follow the decorum of 43 former presidents and just go away has rankled the veteran newsman.
Dobbs kicked off the segment by blasting Obama for being critical of the president’s agenda that our Marxist ex-president calls “destructive populism.” Dobbs flipped the script on Obama by referring to Obama’s failed agenda as “destructive elitism” and then noted “at least the people get a voice now.”
Dobbs disgust for Obama was oozing out of every pore as he discussed Obama’s penchant for taking international trips that trace President Trump’s foreign excursions and where he trashes and demeans our president for everything from pulling out of the completely one-sided Paris Climate Accord to his twitter account.
The seventy-two-year old Dobbs has never seen a president who refused to go away and let his replacement govern before Obama and he doesn’t like the way the community organizer is intent on stirring up international resentment against Trump.
Dobbs finally had enough and earlier this week while he was discussing Obama with Steve Forbes he let this fly:
“I think U.S. Marshals should follow him, and any time he wants to go follow the president like he is, and behave — I mean, this is just bad manners. It’s boorish, it’s absurd, he doesn’t realize how foolish he looks,” “I mean, he should be brought back by the Marshals.
“Isn’t there some law that says presidents shouldn’t be attacking sitting presidents?”
Forbes commiserated with Dobbs over his frustration replying “there’s an unwritten one, sort of a Logan Act for ex-presidents,” before acknowledging that there’s no enforceable law governing Obama’s boorish behavior.
Forbes mollified Dobbs disdain for Obama’s behavior by reminding his cable host that Obama can apologize and make excuses all he wants but now that he’s out of the oval office he has no power and no one is listening.
