Lou Dobbs has become delusional in his old age. Despite the fact that the election is going on 9 months old, and Obama was clearly elected president, Dobbs continues his fanatical harping about Obama’s birth certificate. CNN, placed in a delicate position, has put the kibosh – kinda – on Dobbs’ unending banter about Obama’s birth.
CNN checked out the story and found it wasn’t much of a story. Dobbs was told to explain CNN’s findings and then end his constant twittering about the issue. But Dobbs continued to talk about the story that has given rise to what has become known as the “Birther Movement”, a fringe movement that is dedicated to the conspiracy that Obama really wasn’t born here in the good ‘ole US of A and, is, therefore, ineligible to be president of the United States.
Seems some sore losers just can’t get over the fact that Obama won the election. But Dobbs may just have shot himself in the foot. During the month of May, according to an analysis of Nielsen data, Dobbs’ 7 p.m. program on CNN averaged 657,000 total viewers and 181,000 in the key 25-to-54 demographic—numbers that were down a whopping 29 percent and 27 percent, respectively, as compared to May of 2008.
Perhaps his audience is just plain tired of Dobbs and his grandiose delusion that Obama really isn’t the president.
