Citation From the August 6 edition of Fox Business' Lou Dobbs Tonight:

LOU DOBBS (HOST): What are Americans, what are we to make of a former president who comes out from -- at the best, a shadow government, that -- and working diligently against the policies of this president -- and in this moment of tragedy, attacks him, attacks President Trump, needlessly and to me irrelevantly because -- he's got all of his acolytes running for president.


DOBBS: This president has shown Republicans and Democrats alike that -- what happens when being president is a full-time job. A man with his energy and intellect is doing historic things.

Obama was the opposite. He was not -- he himself described himself as lazy.

He didn't do an awful lot for the country. He did an awful lot to hurt the country.

Embracing Iran for crying out loud, and working against the United States, as I said earlier, denouncing the idea that we're a nation of exceptionalism, that Americans are exceptional people and blessed to be here.

He wanted to run every American that he could, it seemed -- conjure up -- wanted to run them down.
