We see his true colors shining through

Is James Dobson a flip-flopper, unprincipled or power hungry? Or is he a combination of all three. This is what James Dobson said just five months ago (emphasis mine):

“I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are. He has at times sounded more like a member of the other party. McCain actually considered leaving the GOP in 2001, and approached John Kerry about being Kerry’s running mate in 2004. McCain also said publicly that Hillary Clinton would make a good president. Given these and many other concerns, a spoonful of sugar does not make the medicine go down. I cannot, and I will not vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience.

“But what a sad and melancholy decision this is for me and many other conservatives. Should John McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime. I certainly can’t vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions. If these are the nominees in November, I simply will not cast a ballot for president for the first time in my life. These decisions are my personal views and do not represent the organization with which I’m affiliated. They do reflect, however, my deeply held convictions about the institution of the family, about moral and spiritual beliefs, and about the welfare of our country.”

And today:
“I never thought I would hear myself saying this; While I am not endorsing Senator John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.”

To paraphrase John Kerry, he was against McCain, before he was for him.

Does anyone still take Dobson seriously? Sadly, I know the answer.

I fear I know that answer as well, my friend...

Somehow I shall have to hope that reason prevails!
