Nick Gillespie Talks Libya, Wisconsin on Fox Business' Lou Dobbs

|

Reason's Nick Gillespie appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight to talk about President Obama's address to the nation about the intervention in Libya, as well as the labor protests in Wisconsin. Air Date: March 29, 2011.

Regarding President Obama's speech about American strikes in Libya, Nick Gillespie says, "I think it was a generally awful address…that didn't convince anybody who wasn't already on board, which was a pretty small pool to begin with." And when it comes to Wisconsin Democrats recalling Republicans legislators, Gillespie notes that all GOP members could be deposed and the Badger State will still have the fourth-highest combined state-and-local tax burden in the nation and be facing a $1.8 billion shortfall in 2012.

Approximately 5 minutes.

  1. “Gillespie notes that all GOP members could be deposed and the Badger State will still have the fourth-highest combined state-and-local tax burden in the nation and be facing a $1.8 billion shortfall in 2012.”

    And after the Germans gassed all the Jews, they were still facing a war on two fronts. Good luck with arguing facts and reason with these people Nick.

    1. You know who else gas- oh, wait…

      Nick got the last word on Wisconsin being about out of control government spending but I guarantee if that conversation would be allowed to continue the other two would have been arguing that it was instead about collective bargaining rights.

      1. Some things deserve to be Godwined. The hard Left’s obsession with “teh Rethuglicans” has gone well beyond the usual political scapegoating. When they manage to blame Republicans for problems in places where Republicans have had little political influence when the problems were created, their political beliefs have rose to the level of pathology.

  2. Hitler before 9am, Rand Paul’s bomb, and the Eiffel Tower’s 120th anniversary-it’s going to be a good day 😉

  3. “Neither party seeming to be able to make much of an advance toward an agreement on the 2011 federal budget, which will be over by the end of September, by the way. Any sense that there’s going to be any, forgive the expression, Nick, reason prevailing here?” -Lou Dobbs

    You know what to do.

  4. lol, OK thats pretty funny when you think about it.
