Daddy Dobson lies, blames teen pages and liberals for Foley debacle

I love seeing the mask drop on these hypocrite evangelical leaders. Daddy Dobson’s Focus on the Anus is scrambling to defend the politicians they’ve bedded down with over the years, and I’d like him to keep on defending their behavior. Bring it on, Daddy D.

James Dobson, it’s now clear, has no idea what the character is of the Republican House leadership that he has counted on to support his hate agenda. Please stay the course, Daddy, because you’re going to go down with this ship.

In his FoTF CitizenLink release, he just can’t understand why the AmTaliban is being held up as partly to blame for this cesspool. Waaah, Waaah.


“Somebody is going to have to tell me what in the wide world this indiscretion by a member of Congress has to do with evangelical Christians. And in my case, especially me,” he said. “What in the world is the connection there? And yet the media is trying to link us somehow.”

He continues the lie that it was liberal activists that released the information, even after ABC confirmed that it was a Republican staffer who passed on the emails. Isn’t lying a sin, Daddy D?

“(It was released by liberals on) the last day of the session of Congress, when it couldn’t be responded to do — the last day,” he said. “It is the day you would not want something like this to break. And they’ve known it for years. They’ve held it for years, and then they threw it out there on the last day of the session demanding that the speaker of the house resign.”

“What they really want to do is to convince (value voters) that ‘all of Washington is wicked and evil, and there is no sense in your even voting, because one’s as bad as another,’ ” he said, “and to impugn the character of those who are trying to live a righteous life, even if imperfectly.

…”If the values voters come out again,” he said, “it will turn the direction of this country, and maybe forever.”

I guess the inability to protect teen boys — sent by some of his “values voters” — from a 52-year-old Congressman sexually preying upon them is just a little imperfection in House leadership.

And in his Focus broadcast, he said this:

As it turns out, Mr. Foley has had illicit sex with no one that we know of, and the whole thing turned out to be what some people are now saying was a — sort of a joke by the boy and some of the other pages.

Another lie that was debunked by ABC’s Blotter last week — after the original charge of a “prank” was lobbed by Queen Drudge. Daddy D’s on a roll. You can hear Dobson’s bleating over at Media Matters.

In other news, weasel Rep. Tom Reynolds (R-NY) unexpectedly canceled a scheduled appearance on ABC’s This Week today.

Reynolds’ office “canceled without explanation and arranged for a substitute guest, Rep. Adam Putnam, R-Fla.,” an ABC spokeswoman told the Associated Press.

…On the day after Foley resigned, Reynolds said he had told Hastert months ago about concerns that Foley had sent inappropriate messages after Reynolds became aware of them last spring.

Hastert since has insisted he was not aware of the charges until more recently. Reynolds, meanwhile, now says he cannot remember exactly when he learned of Foley’s e-mails or when he told Hastert about them.
