Dobson and Viguerie Won't Vote For Giuliani, Either

James Dobson, the Christian Founder and Of Focus On The Family in Colorado Springs, is unequivocal: Dobson says today in an exclusive WND column, speaking strictly as a private citizen, "I cannot, and will not, vote for Rudy Giuliani in 2008."

"It is an irrevocable decision," says the founder and chairman of Focus on the Family. "If given a Hobson's – Dobson's? – choice between him and Sens. Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, I will either cast my ballot for an also-ran – or if worse comes to worst – not vote for the first time in my adult life." For Dobson, its an irrevocable matter of conscience.

And Richard Viguerie, a veteran of decades of conservative campaigning and writing, is even more pointed: "If the Republican Party nominates Rudy Giuliani as its candidate for either president or vice president, I will personally work to defeat the GOP ticket in 2008,"

Viguerie says that nominating Giuliani would amount to the destruction of The Republican Party.

For myself, God could still save it, but it would be in an incoherent cognitive coma. The Republican Party is far astray from what were its defining principles. If Giuliani were its nominee, it would have severed any tether to its republican foundation, and would be utterly adriftin a popular culture sea: not a good place to be. Here are the links.
