I listen to this guy all the time. I really think he is an Aspie and doesn't know it. It has every attribute. Do you watch him? If you do, see if you agree. If you do watch him, why do you think he does or doesn't?


Best,

It has crossed my mind he might be a little off. AS might be the reason.

Seriously? No, I don't think he's Aspergian. Just a conservative blockhead.

BLOCKHEAD? Based on your handle, and location(It may not be mexico, but it probably has a lot of mexican influence), I guess I shouldn't have expected anything more flattering. But HEY, lou dobbs would probably LOVE that comment coming from you!

Lou Dobbs... conservative?

Hardly.

Some mexicans and mexican sympathizers are ALL FOR senseless immigration even when they are like leaches(providing no real value, and just taking). Lou Dobbs is reasonable there and reorting the truth, and he doesn't like it. If someone like that is insulted by a person that is so dead set for such policies, it is almost like a compliment!

maestro means master or teacher in spanish, and new mexico DOES have a lot of people of mexican descent, and many are probably not legal. Oh yeah, most mexicans speak spanish.

Lou Dobbs is a conservative populist. Jack Cafferty (also on CNN) is a liberal populist.

Did you know Lou Dobbs founded Space.com? He has also been interested in the search for extra-terrestrial life. (I found this out from Wikipedia.)

Space and ET life could have just been a fad interest for him. And to host a talk show as he does (albeit with his trademark ranting and slightly unusual style), he might have to have pretty good social skills. So I am not sure about whether he might have AS, and my initial inclination is that he does not.

It's Italian. Maestro is a music reference. And I'm British. But I'm heartily sick of blowhards like Dobbs who don't actually live on the border spouting off about immigration as if they know what they're talking about. He doesn't. The situation is far more complex and nuanced than Dobbs is likely to ever address.

Lou Dobbs is not an aspie. He's a ham actor posing as a news journalist.

The original name of Dobbs' show was Lou Dobbs Moneyline. I suspect that, after he began spending more time talking about so-called illegal immigrants than finance, they opted to change the name.
