Mike Huckabee "Responds" to James Dobson: I Would Vote for John McCain
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Mike Huckabee "responded" to pro-life leader Dr. James Dobson on Wednesday morning when he said he would definitely support John McCain over either of the pro-abortion Democratic candidates. Dobson, and other conservatives, have issued statements saying they wouldn't vote if McCain is the GOP nominee.
On Tuesday, Dobson issued a statement saying he is disappointed that the Republican Party "seems poised to select a nominee who ... voted for embryonic stem-cell research to kill nascent human beings," and takes positions contrary to his on other political issues.
"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," Dobson, the head of Focus on the Family, added. " I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience."
Asked in general about those like Dobson or Rush Limbaugh who say they would not vote or pick someone else before they would support McCain, Huckabee said he disagreed.
"Well, you know what? They're not a conservative," the pro-life former Arkansas governor told CNN.
"If they say that, then that just proves something: They're more about themselves than they are the cause. Because there's no way that a true conservative would vote for Hillary Clinton," he added.
