The following is from Mark Nickolas at The Huffington Post.
On February 17, 2000, James Dobson issued a statement in opposition to Gary Bauer's endorsement of then presidential hopeful, John McCain. Here is part of that statement:
"Speaking as a private individual and not as the president of Focus on the Family, Dr. James Dobson expressed disagreement yesterday with former presidential candidate Gary Bauer's endorsement of Senator John McCain as Republican nominee for U.S. President. The Senator has offered no assurances that he intends to appoint a pro-life running mate or pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Indeed, he voted for pro-abortion Stephen Breyer and pro-abortion ACLU-activist Ruth Bader Ginsburg for that Court and for David Satcher for Surgeon General, who supports partial-birth-abortion. McCain also voted in support of President Clinton to expand fetal-tissue research.
"Furthermore, McCain has accepted huge contributions from the gambling industry and apparently is comfortable with the proliferation of gambling in American society. He has also accepted large contributions from producers of alcohol. McCain is in favor of combat assignments for women in the military, and has sought and received enormous financial and political support from the Log Cabin Republicans and other homosexual activists. McCain also supports Most Favored Nation status for the brutal regime in China, and voted against our nation's monitoring of Communist Chinese commercial fronts operating in the United States. He seeks to appease the bloated Federal public school bureaucracy and has refused to support vouchers.
"'The Senator,' Dobson said, 'is being touted by the media as a man of principle, yet he was involved with other women while married to his first wife, and was implicated in the so-called Keating scandal with four other senators. He was eventually reprimanded by the Congress for the "appearance of impropriety." The Senator reportedly has a violent temper and can be extremely confrontational and profane when angry. These red flags about Senator McCain's character are reminiscent of the man who now occupies the White House.'"
Ain't it fascinating how some things never change? Mr. Dobson, with whom I almost never agree on anything, said it right re: McCain's character. Now, seeing as how McCain's character is no different in 2008 than it was in 2000, do you think Dobson will see fit to endorse Senator Obama?
Nah...even an adulterous, profane, violent-tempered liar tied to the alcohol industry like McCain is preferable to a moral, ethical black Democrat! Right?
