Who Would Dobson Vote For?

From Focus on the Family Action (FFA) comes videos critiquing the seven candidates that are leading in the Republican and Democratic presidential primaries: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and John McCain.

Tom Minnery, FFA's senior vice president of government and public policy, and Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council review the candidates and evaluate how each performs against their religious conservative values. Obviously they roundly dismiss the Democratic candidates. But I was interested in their criticisms of the Republican candidates. A surprise to me: these men didn't like Huckabee, criticizing the former Arkansas governor's position on the Iraq war and his fiscal populism.

Who would James Dobson vote for in 2008? It seems the answer is Mitt Romney, who emerges mostly unscathed in the Focus on the Family analysis.

On the bizarre side, the Focus on the Family pundits claim that "Mitt Romney has acknowledged that Mormonism is not a Christian faith." Huh? What are they smoking?
