I am deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, voted for embryonic stem cell research to kill nascent human beings, opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, has little regard for freedom of speech, organized the Gang of 14 to preserve filibusters in judicial hearings, and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language.

I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are. He has sounded at times more like a member of the other party. McCain actually considered leaving the GOP caucus in 2001, and approached John Kerry about being Kerry’s running mate in 2004. McCain also said publicly that Hillary Clinton would make a good president. Given these and many other concerns, a spoonful of sugar does NOT make the medicine go down. I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience.

But what a sad and melancholy decision this is for me and many other conservatives. Should Sen. McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime. I certainly can't vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions. If these are the nominees in November, I simply will not cast a ballot for president for the first time in my life. These decisions are my personal views and do not represent the organization with which I am affiliated. They do reflect my deeply held convictions about the institution of the family, about moral and spiritual beliefs, and about the welfare of our country.

This is great but it would have been much better a week ago.

If he had come out and endorsed Mitt a couple of weeks, ago things might be different. Because it would neuter Huckabee

I agree; but do you think ROmney still has a chance at the nomination?

Romney wins West Virginia - 18 delegates

Like, WOW!

Strong words! - Without actually saying it, he just endorsed Mitt!

Hope everybody's listening!

I'm glad he's coming out against McCain but, even in this statement, he's helping McCain win. Most straightforward to prevent a McCain nomination is to help people coalesce around an alternative. By keeping silent on this matter -- even at this late hour, I personally think this makes Dobson complicit in a potential McCain nomination.

Am I wrong? Prove me wrong, Dr Dobson!

I don't think that WV is over yet

This whole campaign season has just sickened me. McCain can eat dirt and die, for all I care. Telling his supporters to go and vote for the Huckster in the second vote in WV is just awful. I mean, come on! We are going to nominate the big scam on the GOP ever. And DOBSON- GUESS WHAT BUDDY- If you aren't man enough to suck up your anti-Mormon (and if not yours, your supporter's feelings) feelings and freaking ENDORSE Romney instead of tacitly oppose the competition, you are doing nothing to support the causes you champion. Period. Thank you for damming us all.

This really irritates me. If Dobson wanted to make an impact, he should've done so before the morning of Super Tuesday. A little too late Mr. Dobson.....
