  • I am well-familiar with Focus on the Family as well as the Family Research Council (Focus's Washington big-brother), but I don't personally think any of their leaders could make a serious run for the presidency. Just look at the race a few years ago by Gary Bauer, who was on a similar level with Dobson but he had more political savy. He was basically ridiculed out of the race before it began. That's just one of several examples.

    However, I do believe a leader with their beliefs could make a serious run for President, but I don't think, a Christian spokesperson could make a serious run for President. If that makes sense? Something about their title doesn't bode well in other states, which is why we haven't really seen a spokesperson do well for a run to the presidency.

  • Politics and Religion does not mix at all. That tardo Bush claimed that he was a christian and look what happened.

  • Focus on the Family is almost like the KKK . . . they spread their own version of hate and stupidity but unfortunately do it under the disguise of christianity and supposed moral values.

  • Dobson's irrelevancy is surpassed only by his ego.
