Skip to comments.Dr. Dobson on Mitt Romney

A few days ago on the Laura Ingram radio show, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson said he's not voting for John Mccain or Rudy Giuliani. No surprise there. But then he talked about Mitt Romney and his comments were pretty positive. Click here to listen. The transccript is below.
Ugh! Don’t be a sucker Mr. Dobson.
Interesting. Good for Dr. Dobson. I hope this will help stop the silly religion litmus test issue.
So we voted to avoid a New England Liberal in ‘04, so we could vote in a New England Liberal in ‘08?
And a little bit of enlightening pressure didn’t hurt.
Thompson/Romney or Romney/Thompson looks like our best bet, especially the former. Romney would complement Fred well- his youth and vigor would help b/c of Fred’s health problems and his huge fundraising ability would help with Fred’s late start.
“I hope this will help stop the silly religion litmus test issue.”
Especially since it’s unconstitutional.
But...but...I thought all those evangelicals wouldn’t vote for Romney because he’s Mormon. That’s what the media keeps telling me. Why would they lie?
Romney is a good looking candidate on most issues. My fear is if he was on the ticket, the MSM would hammer him on the “unusual” Mormon views regarding women (like if a woman wants to get to the highest level of their heaven she has to be married to a good Morman male and then be eternally pregnant having spirit babies.)
If you don’t think Hitlery would exploit this you’re kidding yourself.
I don’t trust Romney. However far he may have come in finally recognizing that we shouldn’t kill babies or compromise our 2nd amendment rights, this guy has already made his peace with compromising with the extreme left. How else could he govern Massachussetts? Moreover, I think he has that same weird preppy urge to serve that George Bush had. He doesn’t approach the job with the same burning committment to issues that Reagan did or Ron Paul does.
“So we voted to avoid a New England Liberal in 04, so we could vote in a New England Liberal in 08?”
So we voted against a Massachusetts flip-flopper in ‘04 so we could vote in a Massachusetts flip-flopper in ‘08?
Hey, I’m as much of a Fred-head as the next guy, but I think it’s time we begin to think about Plan B. What if Fred doesn’t run, or the Hitlery-Hit machine digs up something on Fred that takes him out of the race?
In Minnesota in 2006 the Dems tried to play the religion card against Michelle Bachman (she’s Lutheran. LCMS or WELS) to scare away Catholic voters from her, it failed.
You even had people asking “do you agree with your church that the pope is the Anti-christ?”
Like so many other 'leaders' on the Christian Right, Dobson will consider anybody as long as they come to kiss his ring.
Why is it so hard for Protestants/Evangelicals to find good spokesmen? I know there are lots of forgettable (to put it kindly) Catholic bishops but there are a lot of good ones as well.
No matter what view point he preaches, no matter what opinion he gives, I have to assume he is saying what he thinks will get him elected, and that he may not govern that way.
In other words, a vote for Romney is a vote for a question mark or flip of the coin.
“Hey, Im as much of a Fred-head as the next guy,”
Yeah sure you are.
“What if Fred doesnt run,”
or the Hitlery-Hit machine digs up something on Fred that takes him out of the race?
And what might that be? Can you spill the beans or are you just constructing strawmen, Mittboy.
