Where Was James Dobson Eight Years Ago?

In a recent broadcast James Dobson of Focus on the Family stated the following:

I've been on the air for 32 years and I've never seen a time quite like this. It just illustrates what happens when we don't have what the Founding Fathers referred to as checks and balances, where the excesses of one party or one branch of government limit the reach of power hungry and self-serving people and keeps them form doing things that are harmful to the country. That's the way the system was designed. We have 2 major political parties in this country, not one. And bipartisanship is a media creation that's designed to promote one point of view instead of the debate that should occur. And that's why media doesn't talk about bipartisanship when conservatives are in power...

...[today] the radical left controls the executive branch through the president, and the Congress... and the Judiciary through the courts... now they control it all, including every department of government. As a result, the legislation that should shock the nation, if people were paying attention, is being rushed into law.

Just exactly where Mr. Dobson was eight years ago, when his party had a majority in Congress and was able to push through any right-wing legislation they desired is anyone's guess. A majority that rubber stamped everything that George Bush and his controller, Cheney wanted enacted. This was the total control that brought us Iraq, torture, a financial meltdown, and a near loss of the Constitution. Sorry, Mr. Dobson, but your slip is showing.

Serious as I can be, get the Ga interlibrary loan to go to work for you and turn up a copy of Feldman's Religion and Politics in the White South.
Great resource for your ever growing audience.

A couple of things here. First, even though all of the Washington politicians have to share responsibility for the current economic disaster, it was the [=Democrats=] that blocked every attempt at regulations aimed at stopping the current crisis several years ago. That's because too many of them were getting kickbacks from FannieMae. As a state government employee, I would be UNDER a prison for that. And Iraq? 39% of 208 Democratic Representatives voted for the war resolution, & 48% of 50 Democratic Senators also voted for it.

The Democrats have to look in the mirror & share a major part of the responsibility.

Where were they? Slopping in with their pigs. Covering their brains with the ostritches. Riding the wave of power like a beach bum. THAT'S where they were, with no concern for anyone but themselves.
