brody.jpgHere’s the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody on James Dobson’s McCain denouncement. He sees it as a probable tacit endorsement for Romney. As a former Focus on the Family newsman, Brody would be one to know.

I guess my first question is, “Why come out with this statement now?” The skeptic in me wonders if this is a way of helping Romney without endorsing him. Let’s be real. For Evangelical Dobson to endorse a Mormon would be a tough pill to swallow for many of his loyal listeners so maybe this is code for “Vote for Romney.”
I guess James Dobson won’t be getting any calls from a possible McCain administration if that ever happens. Not that James Dobson really cares about that. I’m sure millions of Evangelicals feel the same way that Dr. Dobson feels, but let’s be clear: not all Evangelicals will jump ship on McCain. He does appeal to many on the national security issue and that trumps many of the other blemishes.
