Dobson opines on the GOP field

We know James Dobson doesn't like me, or at least his people don't. Although they do like to send me fundraising letters.

Anyway, Dobson shares his opinion of the GOP field in US News & World Report, via Raw Story.

Wright County GOP favorite Fred Thompson is not held in such high regards by Mr. Dobson.
"Everyone knows he's conservative and has come out strongly for the things that
the pro-family movement stands for," Dobson said of Thompson. "[But] I don't
think he's a Christian; at least that's my impression," Dobson added, saying
that such an impression would make it difficult for Thompson to connect with the
Republican Party's conservative Christian base and win the GOP nomination.

As the mouth piece for a multi-million dollar religious front, Dobson's words strike deep.

On Gingrich:
While making it clear he was not endorsing any Republican presidential
candidate, Dobson, who is considered the most politically powerful evangelical
figure in the country, also said that Gingrich was the "brightest guy out there"
and "the most articulate politician on the scene today."

Ah, Newt. The guy who married his high school math teacher at 19, divorced her at 26. In Newt's infinite wisdom, he discussed the terms of this divorce with his soon to be ex wife while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery.

Family values...

Within a year, he married again and divorced in 1999, when he had an affair with a Congressional Staffer.

Oh yeah, when he was so outspoken about President Clinton's Whitehouse sexual escapades.

Family values...

This is the guy Dobson has the highest praise for?

Why doesn't Dobson himself run for President?
