It’s not all that uncommon for me to, as my grandfather might say, let my mouth overload my ass. By that he meant saying things I’d regret later on. While I seem to have a knack for it, James Dobson seems to have perfected the art. To wit, his comments about John McCain from 2000:
“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.”
And Just last year, Dobson had this to say:
“Speaking as a private individual, I would not vote for John McCain under any circumstances,” Focus on the Family founder James Dobson told the Christian radio show Jerry Johnson Live in January.
Of course, now with Obama as his only alternative, somehow the Bible seems to have miraculously softened it’s positions on marriage fidelity and ethics because Dobson is hinting he might be able to find it in his heart to support McCain.
