Lou Dobbs: Trump White House has 'lost its way'
By Avery Anapol - 03/07/19 08:32 AM EST

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, normally a staunch supporter of President Trump, on Wednesday said he fears the administration has “lost its way.”

Dobbs made the comments on his show following a White House meeting of Trump’s American Workforce Policy Advisory Board.

Dobbs called the meeting, which included CEOs like Apple’s Tim Cook, shows the Trump White House taking a “disastrous policy turn.”

“What I fear is a new direction for the president and his administration and what could very likely be a catastrophe for the working men and women, small business and entrepreneurs, our middle class, the American family, the very people this president has represented from the moment he announced he would run for the presidency.”

I saw him talking about this last night.  He has a point, and I'm just happy only 7 CEOs participated.  The lack of interest might be what saves Trump from himself.
I will NOT comply.

The very concept of a government-run [Soviet] "Workforce Training Central Planning Board" is, of course, anathema to the free society and ought to be an insult to free men everywhere.

IMO alot of what Trump has begun doing in general has to do with his upcoming impeachment. Since the Mueller thing will no longer be around to keep him in check the Uniparty has decided to use blunt force to see he does the 'right thing' from now on.

Thanks to the likes of Mulkowski, Collins & Gardner he's hanging by a thread in the senate as it is.

How convenient, blame others for Trump's own mistakes. Buck stops with him, and no one else.

Just observing whats going on and exercising a little critical thinking. You can choose to do otherwise.

Federal occupational licenses are right around the corner.

IMO, there has been a remarkable lack of critical thinking on the part of Trump supporters. As long as he continues to Tweet, all is well with the Trump brigades.

Dobbs does well here, I commend him. Doesn't it seem like often, some idea is floated out there by the Administration, then, there is often blow back and then, the Admin doesn't do it.

It is like outer influences on the Admin, Trump basically ran with the idea of an immediate withdrawal from Syria, this was Sen. Rand Paulish but now, there's largely been a walk back on that, about a 50% compromise. I don't think Rand would be as smug as prior.

It seems to often happen. The idea is thrown out there, picked apart and then, renovated or maybe even dropped. We can hope for the same thing here.

How can you 'lose your way' when you have no core principles to begin with?
Down the centuries, you have slurred the meaning of the words, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty, to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution". These words and the words that follow, were not written only for the Yangs, but for the Kohms as well! They must apply to everyone, or they mean nothing! - James Tiberius Kirk

Yes, 20 years ago, we used to mock the president for governing by focus group and trial balloon.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Heck, just 3.5 years ago we did.

Right. Lets see what happens to Trump's emergency wall declaration.

Biggest slow motion trial balloon, ever. He sent his ‘Build wall through M!’ tweet a year ago and reintroduced it, prior to the shutdown. It only took him another 2 months, after that, to finally declare an ‘emergency,’ after getting so much heat from the base.

Trump is a phony.  This from a loyalist.  But Dobbs is right, he is disgusted with Trump because he is definitely breaking promises made that will cost him the election.

The ONLY promise I know he made for Day 1 of his presidency was the elimination of the H1-b Visa Program.  And it appears he is expanding the program.  If he does this, he loses my vote, and as many as I can convince otherwise.  He is appearing to be a swamp puppet more each day.

Dobbs is right on the money.  I am beginning to believe that the WALL was merely empty rhetoric, and what is happening is the minimalistic actions necessary to placate the masses.

I will not waiver on this issue.  No end to H1-b Visa Program, no vote for Trump.  It is that simple.  This one aw-sh*t will cost my vote.

As Dobbs ages, his irritability increases daily.
If he was expecting a clone of Jefferson,
Madison or Rutledge in Trump; he should wake up.
Whatever Trump has achieved is the consequence
of the quality of his opposition and emphatically
not due to his own attitudes and behaviors.
