James Dobson may no longer have the influence he enjoyed when he was still at Focus on the Family, but that is not stopping him from doing what he does best: freaking out about politics.
Just as he did regularly when running Focus’ radio program, Dobson dedicated his most recent “Family Talk” program to discussing the upcoming elections with his good friend Gary Bauer. And, as he’s be prone to do more and more in recent years, Dobson is growing increasingly hysterical about the future of this nation:
Shirley and I were married on August 27, 1960 and two months later we voted for the first time in a national election. And I’ll tell you, from that time to this – and we’ve been through a lot of elections – I don’t think I’ve ever seen one that was more significant than the one we’re about to experience, even though it’s not focused on a presidential election.
Horrendous decisions have been made during these past two years and that nation is at a crossroads right now that could bring further ruin … I don’t know how to say it differently. If I could get down on my hands and knees and beg people, if that would help I would do it because this time it’s now or never. If we take the wrong path with the issues that are on the table today, I don’t think we will ever recover as a nation.
You know what would be noteworthy? If we could get through one national election without Dobson declaring it to be the most important election of his lifetime.
