James Dobson Condemns McCain: Will Vote for Romney

James Dobson issued a statement today saying he is strongly opposed to John McCain's candidacy. He criticized McCain as an enemy of conservatives on many issues. Said Dobson: "I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are."

Shortly after releasing his statement, Dr. Dobson was a quest on Dennis Prager's radio show, where he stated that he will cast his vote for Mitt Romney. While Dobson made it clear this was a personal decision and not a formal endorsement, he said he was willing to overlook the differences between evangelicals and Mormons in favor of the "strong leadership" Mitt Romney brings to the table.

As one of the most influential voices in the evangelical community, Dr. Dobson's statement is likely to have a strong influence on many evangelicals. It's worthwhile to note that Dobson has chosen to support Mitt Romney rather than fellow evangelical Mike Huckabee.

This is big! Dobson carries a ton of weight. Mitt's got to be happy with this news. I'm glad Dobson recognizes Mitt as a strong leader. He really is an outstanding man of vision and executive ability.

That's right!!!! Those exit polls don't check the bigotry vote do they?

One thing is for sure....Romney better not accept VP to a 72 yr old senile angry man who has demonstrated he is morally bankrupt. And Huckabee is a piece of work as well......Huckabee=hypocrite. He is everything he criticizes in Romney. Dr. Dobson knows it. I'll guarantee Huckabee has said multiple times, "no %##^% mormon is going to beat me for the presidential nomination." Now this isn't based on political differences but theological ones. Real classy guy!!! I repeat Romney will not accept VP. America has spoken, they really are bigoted. We have the most competent candidate staring us in the face in 50 yrs and he is marginalized because of what? That's right, his religion.

I say in the very instance McCain pulled his lie about the timetables, and also this WV deal it should AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFY HIM IN THE MINDS OF VOTERS FROM ANY POSSIBILITY OF GOING ON. HUCKABEE AS WELL. THEIR AMBITION IS UNBELIEVABLE. GET READY TO SPEAK SPANISH PEOPLE!!!

What took Dobson so long? I'm disappointed that more prominent conservatives don't have the conviction to come out and take a stand. What good is Dobson's endorsement now? Why didn't Jeb Bush come out and support Mitt before the Florida primaries? Why are so many prominent conservatives hiding?
I really doubt that McCain would offer thee VP spot to Mitt, ... he's too arrogant and doesn't want his running mate to look better than he does. Then there's the big question... would Mitt accept it? I doubt it.

While I fully understand the angst of Conservatives in their policy opposition to John McCain blunders like Illegal immigration, Conservatives are beginning to amaze me in their inability to see the larger picture.

While I also disagree with McCain on a dozen issues or so, the alternative is not just four years of 'sitting it out' as some have proposed.

Many talk radio hosts have battled a McCain nomination. Even Focus On The Family Director Dr. Dobson (who I admire ) has declared his refusal to vote for McCain.

This astonishes me because it’s the same as saying “if we don’t get the conservative I want, We’ll let the country go to hell in a hand basket.”

This, in my opinion is very dangerous and makes our future prospects harder - since our children will be growing up in the aftermath of such a decision.

Anti McCain pundits and commentators such as Rush Limbaugh have ventured the idea that perhaps we should sit this election out and let the Dems have a term in office, claiming it might pave the way for a future shot at a candidate he and others will like in four years.

While I understand these expressions of dismay, I think it’s shortsighted. Imagine the damage our country will endure if Democrats control all three branches of government for 4 to 8 years. .

This would give liberals what they will treat as a clear sign from America that is it ready to move sharply to the left. Conservatism will lose most of it’s teeth and the liberal agenda could easily reverse all of the progress we’ve made in the war on terror, Tax reduction, Pro Life, and other extremely important issue.

We can always address the issue of immigration again in 4 years. What we cannot afford to see happen is a liberal agenda that makes illegal immigration the least of our country’s problems. Our country may be so torn up, it won’t have the time to even visit the issue, like we can today.

There is no such thing as a quick recovery from 4 years of liberalism unchecked. We may be facing what will take years and years of damage to undo. What’s more, there’s no guarantee that it WILL be undone. The passage of even one single liberal law is extremely difficult to outlaw - as if Roe V Wade hasn’t taught us this already!

Rush Limbaugh and others may revel in 4 years of liberal destruction as a talk radio host who can use the material, however all it takes is one liberal judge appointed to the Supreme Court to unravel the one ace we’ve achieved in the last 8 years. This doesn’t occur to me as a smart decision for Conservatives to be making..

As Evangelical Conservatives know, Pride cometh before the fall, and I hope they will study that verse before deciding to approach this election with dismay rather than enthusiasm.

Questioning McCain was right and highly useful for a time and a season. But there are greater threats looming on our horizon than John McCain.

It’s time to put our differences aside and get with the business assuring our children, they will not grow up in a socialist, liberally dominated world. This may be our cross roads, and it is certainly no time to be staying home on Election Day.
