Dobson Offers Insight on 2008 Republican Hopefuls

(U.S. News & World Report) - Focus on the Family founder James Dobson appeared to throw cold water on a possible presidential bid by former Sen. Fred Thompson while praising former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is also weighing a presidential run, in a phone interview Tuesday.

"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.

What a joke James Dobson should be considered?! Only evangelical Christians are real Christians, huh?

So does Mr. Dobson('s spokesperson) mean to imply that Catholics are not Christians but "repentant" adulterers are?

How long will it be before brother James is caught up in some unsavory scandal proving him to be the hypocrite he undoubtedly is?....Maybe he can read the tea leaves for that next time!
