Dobson's Mystery Candidate
Dr. James Dobson wrote an op-ed published in the New York Times, titled "The Values Test." He describes how he and 49 other "pro-family leaders" met to discuss the presidential race of 2008. It was decided "after two hours of deliberation" that they would vote on this resolution:
If neither of the two major political parties nominates an individual who pledges himself or herself to the sanctity of human life, we will join others in voting for a minor-party candidate.
What these "leaders" fail to realize is that the Christians they say the lead actually are able to think for themselves. I am an evangelical Christian. I carefully examined the current group of Republicans (the Dems are not an option) and have decided to back Rudy Guiliani. Rudy has said he will nominate conservative justices when it comes time to making judicial appointments. He specifically mentions Roberts, Alito, Scalia and Thomas as models for his appointments. What is the problem, Dr. Dobson?
The New York Times is happy to offer precisou op-ed space to a foe of theirs when he threatens to split the Republican vote. What does that tell you about the value of Dr. Dobson's proposal?
