clip conflict?? um NO-since both sides really dont care about it-if howard kurtz came out and said-they STOLE it from us and Abrams responding in kind then yes-basically what both of them is saying is "so what-we used the same clips no big deal" conflict? hardly!!

On The Mark
I have to say, with regrets, Geraldo is right about Lou. I suppose the Lou is assuming:
Rants, Raves + Racism = Ratings.
I think Lou has lost it, and I wish he were not on CNN or any other cable news network. For once, Geraldo: You're on target!

I disagree with you both.  
Illegal aliens are costing U.S. citizens jobs, and billions in additional education and health care costs. They are also very prevalent in being involved with drunk-driving deaths and in gang-related crime.  
It KILLS me every two months when I have to write out a check to pay for my own health insurance, and go to a pharmacy to buy prescriptions (at 100% of the cost to ME), knowing full well that these illegals only have to show up at a hospital to get free health care. And it's very disheartening to see the jobs they've taken from Americans, and the crimes they commit against us, with very little outrage from our government.  
Like it or not, Dobbs has just latched on to the outrage many of us have with our government doing NOTHING to secure our borders. Paying for my own health care (mentioned above) is NOTHING compared with the outrage I feel when I read about an illegal driving drunk, wiping out an entire family. Or the way our government prosecuted Agents Ramos and Compean for going after that drug dealer. They were doing their jobs, but the administration went after THEM because they truly do NOT want our immigration laws enforced.  
Geraldo is an ethnocentric whining liberal who wants his people over here so that they will vote democrat. He is a bleeding heart liberal, who is liberal with other people's money. If he wants to fund Hispanic interests, fine; let him sell everything he has and donate the money to their causes. And he cares nothing at all about the millions of people waiting in other lands, LEGALLY awaiting entry into our country.
Finally, he makes it a habit of calling ANYONE a racist or bigot if they disagree with his tolerance for those who break our laws. He's done this to Michelle Malkin and O'Reilly, and to any others who share their views.

I too agree with Lou's aggressive illegal alien stances. I disagree with just about everything else Dobbs says. On most issues I consider Lou a vapid DF, but his focus on illegal immigration is admirable.
