Founder and president of “Focus on the Family,” Dr. James Dobson has been the news recently for calling out Barack Obama for “biblical revisionism.” In short, Dobson believed (and he was right) that Obama was liquidating the veracity of the scriptures so as not to tweak any of his potential voters, but still romancing the Church.

Well, now AS IF you would expect a conservative Evangelical to do anything less, Dr. Dobson has come out to say he may vote for McCain. And this gets headlines?

“I never thought I would hear myself saying this,” Dobson said in a radio broadcast to air Monday. “… While I am not endorsing Senator John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.”

Talk about your ringing endorsements. Hey Johnny Boy, you had some issues with notable clergy supporting you, right? I would swoop this one up. It sounds like a winner.

Let’s continue with Dr. Dobson and his ubiquitous “focus”:

“There’s nothing dishonorable in a person rethinking his or her positions, especially in a constantly changing political context,” Dobson said in a statement to the AP. “Barack Obama contradicts and threatens everything I believe about the institution of the family and what is best for the nation. His radical positions on life, marriage and national security force me to reevaluate the candidacy of our only other choice, John McCain.”

I love the first sentence because he simply echoes the sentiment of the Church (even though for him it was just jocking for position and to save face). Most evangelicals are considering a.) WHO to vote for or b.) WHETHER to vote at all.

What is the most historic presidential election ever is turning out to be the difference between getting the left leg or right leg amputated. Do I have to choose? Really? It’s gonna hurt like H-E-double hockey sticks either way.

Let’s get to praying folks. One of these guys has to be the better choice. Find the issues and digest them. When you burp, that’ll be the one you go to the polls with. Happy hunting.
