James Dobson interviews Sarah Palin

Focus on the Family founder James Dobson interviewed Sarah Palin on his radio show earlier this week, and the clip was posted this morning.

Mark Barna at the Colorado Springs Gazette wrote Monday that although Dobson didn't attend a rally, he spoke with her on the phone for 18 minutes.

Update: The interview is about 20 minutes long and starts at about 2:52 minutes into the show.

Most of the interview is chit chat, with very little discussion of what policies McCain-Palin would implement, except Palin says that she and McCain support the planks in the Republican Party's platform. However, the platform does say it supports stem cell research without the "unethical destruction of embryonic human life." McCain has said he would support embryonic stem-cell research. The platform also supports a constitutional amendment as between a man and a woman, something McCain does not support on a national level. Finally, the platform supports a constitutional amendment banning all abortion, which McCain has said should be decided on the state level.

After the jump, here's an interview play-by-play, in case you don't have time to listen.

Palin tells Dobson that her children do their schoolwork on the campaign trail, and head back to the classroom to get caught up. Dobson says that he is one of Palin's "great fans" and is praying for her.

Palin: It is that intercession that is so needed and so greatly appreciated. And I can feel it, too, Dr. Dobson. I can feel the power of prayer and that strength that is provided through our prayer warriors across this nation. And I so appreciate it.

Dobson: You hear that everywhere you go, don't you?
Palin: I do, and that is what allows us to continue to be inspired and strengthened. It's that great reminder when we hear along the rope lines that people are interceding for us and praying for us. It's our reminder to do the same, to seek his perfect will for this nation, and to of course seek his wisdom and guidance in putting this nation back on the right track.

Dobson: Your faith is very much a part of who you are, isn't it?
Palin: It is my foundation, yes. My Christian faith is.

Dobson said that he wrote her a letter after she chose to carry Trig, her baby who has Down Syndrome, to term. He said that Palin wrote him a letter back.

Palin: I so appreciated your words. When we found out, I was about 13 weeks along when I found out that Trig would be born with Down Syndrome.
To be honest with you, it scared me, though, and I knew it would be a challenge, and I had to really be on my knees the entire rest of the pregnancy, asking that God would prepare my heart. The second he was born, it was absolute confirmation that that prayer was answered with all of us falling just so in love with him.
This whole new world has been opened up to me. I've always had near and dear to my heart the mission of protecting the sanctity of life and being pro-life or a hard-core pro-lifer, but I think this opportunity to be walking the walking and not just talking the talk. There's purpose also for a greater good to be met there. I feel so privileged and blessed to have been, I guess, chosen to have Trig into our lives because I do want it to help us in our cause here in allowing America to be a more welcoming nation for all of our children.

Dobson told her that one of the most touching and dramatic moments for him was when he saw Piper wet her fingers and smooth Trig's hair down.

Palin: That was a nice kind of a manifestation there of one of our little mother hen there in Piper, the innocent child-like love that kids certainly have for one another. And truly that is that love that our country needs more of. Dr. Dobson you have been on the fore-front of all of this, of all of this good for many years. Your reward's going to be in heaven because I know that you take a lot of shots also, but please know that on our end, as kind of outsiders looking in at what you've accomplished all these years, if it were not for you, so many of us would be missing the boat in terms of hearing the message and know what that is we can do to further the cause of life and of ethics in our nation. Those things that we should be engaged in, we owe so much to you.

Dobson and Palin talked about the media, Joe the Plumber, and the Republican platform.
Dobson calls the Republican platform "the strongest pro-life, pro-family document to come out of a political party, even more so than the platforms during the campaigns of Ronald Reagan."

Palin: Dr. Dobson thank you so much for recognizing that. This is a strong platform built around the planks in this platform that respect life and respect the entrepreneurial spirit of this great country and those things, back to the social issues that are what Republicans, at least in the past, had articulated and tried to stand on. Now, finally, we have very solid planks in the platform that will allow us to build an even stronger foundation for our country. It's all good and it's encouraging. You would maybe have assumed that we would have gotten further away from those strong planks. But no, they're there, they're solid, we stand on them and again I believe that it is the right agenda for the country at this time. Very, very clear and contrasted tickets in this election November 4. People are going to see the clear contrasts, you just go to the planks in our platforms and that's where you see them.

Dobson asks whether, based on her private conversations with McCain, she thinks he will implement the planks.

Palin: I do, from the bottom of my heart. I am such a strong believer that McCain believes in those strong planks and we do have good conversations about some of the details too of the different planks and what they represent. I'm very heartened that John McCain ... he doesn't want a Vice President who will check the opinions ... of me at the door and we talk about some of these and they're very important. It's most important though, as you're suggesting, that Americans know that John McCain is solidly there on those solid planks in our platform that build the right agenda for America.

Dobson asks Palin what lessons she has learned in the last couple of months.

Palin: Back to the media, you really can't pick a fight with those who buy ink by the barrelful in the mainstream media.

This is where my faith becomes even more important to me. I have to have faith that our words message will get out there minus the filter of the mainstream media so that American voters understand the clear choices that they have on the fourth of November. ? Even bigger than that, then I have to have that faith that God's going to help us get that message out there.

Dobson: My goodness, if our audience is any indication, they're getting it. There are millions of people praying for you and for Sen. McCain.
It's always risky to kind of politicize your prayer life, but there are issues here that are important to me than my life.

Dobson invited Palin to Focus on the Family and Palin told Dobson to give his wife, Shirley, a big hug.

Comments

Palin and Dobson can blame the media for misunderstanding her. But what about the millions of Americans (mostly independents and conservatives) who are leaving the ticket after giving Palin a chance for the first few weeks?

Also, on McCain keeping his conservative promises: McCain has not made any new promises since adding Palin to his ticket. He was pro-life and anti-gay marriage amendment before adding her -- he still is, and his conservative credentials are just as much in question as they were before. Maybe Dobson and others have been reading those "actuarial estimates"...

Contrast these two public leaders.

Palin: "John McCain ... he doesn't want a Vice President who will check the opinions ... of me at the door and we talk about some of these and they're very important. It's most important though, as you're suggesting, that Americans know that John McCain is solidly there on those solid planks in our platform that build the right agenda for America."

Jefferson: "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion?"

Someone want to tell me how it has come to this? Palin speaks like she has Downs herself. Simply Unreal.

Sarah Palin has done more for the Republican ticket than any other VP in history. She is honest (that's something new for Washington), she's smart, and she stands for God's righteousness (whoa! that's something the media wouldn't print!!). How sad that this country that was founded upon God's principles now supports the killing of unborn children and sodomy (openly). But what's even worse is that those who support this Obama murderous and deceitful ticket do it solely for what they perceive to be economic gain. Aren't the unborn and righteous marriages in God's eyes more important to Christians than their pocketbooks. If you are Christian, get out there and vote -- VOTE THE BIBLE -- NOT YOUR POCKETBOOK! GET WITH GOD'S PROGRAM -- NOT YOUR OWN!!!!

Reverend Deacon Dumb Mast-sa Dobson, you are a complete IDIOT to place your glory in that of man or woman. Big Embacil, put your trust and glory to GOD. You people don't even believe what you preach. POOR, POOR Sarah Palin-this one i'll leave in the hands of a higher power. Pray on that REV.

OK - I consider myself an independent and am a evangelical Christian and a social and fiscal conservative. I can't remember the last time I voted for someone who wasn't a Republican. That said, Dobson's last words worry me, in that he seems to suggest that millions of "our audience" - i.e. Christians - are praying that God will place McCain and Palin in office. Shouldn't we ALL be praying instead that GOD's will and choice be supreme - regardless of who HE chooses for HIS purposes? If, as the Bible says, God puts Kings and Presidents in office, then for HIS purposes He has put more than a few in that I wouldn't have chosen - Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, etc. And obviously, God has ELECTED more than a few tyrants and dictators over the centuries - but these were HIS choices for HIS ETERNAL purposes. God may well choose Barak Obama - I won't - but HE might. We must ask ourselves, do we think our world and society is going to be TRULY changed through politics or SPIRITUALLY through The Lord? Do we truly believe that our happiness and prosperity are dependent upon who wins the White House. Our faith is very shallow indeed if this is the case!

Mr Dodson's extremist views are divisive for Christians and America as well. As a long time born again Christian, James Dobson doesn't speak for me and probably never will.

There is but One Mediator between God and man, and it's NOT James Dobson (or Ms Sarah--though through her rabid anti-abortion position tries her hardest.)

I haven't been impressed with anything in the last eight years that was anywhere close to the New Testament interpretations. Though a registered Republican, I won't be voting that way

Dr Dobson has become myopic..there are more issues than the 2 that never got addressed by the present Christian President..maybe you should see the movie W and try to understand the warmongering hatred exhibited in the documented White House records. Hatred and love are diametrically opposed..maybe you should get the 2x4 out of your eyes before you damn the splinters in others. Sarah Palin is an embarrasment to the Republican party..how could McCain think she was as competent as Milt Romney..of course he's a Mormon..not part of our inner circle. What a sad commentary on the behaviour of a potential President..an angry old man that should definetly consider some post trauma syndrome counselling befor he suggests a military attack on Senator Obama

First of all, I, too, am a Christian. I have put my complete Faith and TRUST in God. However, I really struggle with the way, some Christian leaders preach. In this interview, I see Dr. Dobson just "drooling" over Sarah Palin. Here are two born again Christains praising each other's faith.The only two issues that are discussed are abortion and gays. Here's what I struggle with. Neither seems too concern about lying, running people down, trying to ruin reputations, inciting people to violence, etc, etc, etc. They have absolutely no concern for the poor, the needy, the veterans, the low income families, Senior citizens,(unless they are wealthy). Oh, I know, they give a certain amount to 'The church'. The church supports missions, the hungry, etc., but I'm talking about giving until it hurts. Dr. Dobson, please fill me in on your lifestyle. Sarah, you too. Just the other day many thousands were spent on a wardrobe to make you look "classy". I live on $995.00 plus $290 S.S. I recieved a letter a couple of weeks ago saying that my medicare was not going to cover as much anymore. I ask you, do you care? I doubt it very much. I don't know how many times I've heard how women's place is in the home, they should keep quiet in church, etc. Men rule over them. Now, however, Dr. Dobson has done a complete turn around. Sarah Palin has five kids...one that is a special needs child, another one pregnant. What are her duties as a MOTHER?.Or wife, for that matter? Instead of praying so much, maybe you two should really be serious and ask, "JUST 'WHAT' WOULD JESUS DO?" Dr.Dobson, you supported George Bush for the past 8 years. Give me ONE good reason why I should support the Republican Party. Actually , I find it hard to believe that you, a man of God, supporting it either. It's always been known that the Republican party are for the wealthy....hmmmm, Jesus was always for the poor.

Amen to that Phillip. In the end, God is sovereign and Christians ought to pray that they will have the grace to understand and accept God's will. I am a warrior and I prefer a President not afraid to keep us on offense in this war on terror but at the same time, I know God will not be surprised come Nov 5 when the results are in and many in America become dramatic about what the future holds. This much I do know.........Afghanistan is the next battle-ground and either President will have his hands full there. More Christians should be praying about their fellow Christians getting killed over there by Taliban.

Semper Fi,
Marine Officer

I find Sarah Palin to be an articulate, friendly, well rounded leader. She appears to have gotten the job done as a mayor and as governor. She may not have the knowledge and experience of some seasoned politicians, but I believe she is and will be a great leader. While I may not be excited about McCain's personality, and sometimes wish the Republican Party would focus more on more funds for effective social programs; I strongly believe that Christians operating in community are much more likely to offer real hope to people in need than any Washington program. Obama is promising change and hope; but he has been very evasive in detailing what the change will be. His entire political life seems to be more talk that action and I don't see any change now. Neither candidate is offering any real leadership. Neither candidate has any true answers. Both are running on tired ideas. Given that, I must vote on the moral issues that underline each candidate. My vote may not determine the outcome, the outcome may not represent my choice, but I have confidence that the God of the Universe does. From what I've seen, he seems to know what he is doing.

Its just amazing to read this. The conservative commentators, Krauthammer, Will, Kristol, et.al. are lamenting the death of the Republican Party because of the narrow and socially irresponsible positions pushed by Dobson and company for the past 30 years. As their own thinkers admit, Palin and Dobson betray the intellectual vacuity of the party, and, sad to say, that of the popular evangelicalism ("our people") that has been so closely attached to it since Reagan. These folks may know how to campaign, including playing hard ball with the best of them, a la Rove, but they sure dont know how to govern. The Bush legacy is living proof.
What kind of witness is that?

I am amazed that Sarah Palin had her 6 month old boy on stage very late at night after the vice-presidential debate. On the campaign trail, Sarah Palin's kids have been with her. Are these kids not meant to be at school? Are they home, I mean campaign schooled or does Alaska law allow extended stay from school for them?

P.J., there have been several news articles in which actual witnesses debunk the incitement to violence rumors started by the Obama campaign. Also, the clothing purchase has been explained in that the clothes actually belong to the Republican National Convention, who wanted to ensure that Sarah Palin would be dressed appropriately for the occasion. Clothes purchased in this manner are either returned or donated to auctions. In addition, Gov. Palin is not responsible for the decisions of her children.

Phillip and Marine Officer, the thought has crossed my mind. I can't recall who said it, but there was a Christian leader who said (in jest) something to the effect that Bill Clinton was a good president for Christianity because people were always on their knees praying during his time in office.

First of all, this was an 18 minute conversation! I can't believe you expect Palin and Dobson to cover personal life, politics and foreign policy in that time!
As Far as schooling goes, you can get an education anywhere, and you can hire tutors. Celebs do it all the time. I think it is more important to have the family together. And by the way, just as you believe that Dobson is pushing an "extreme right" position, don't forget that there is an extreme left doing just the same. They get to be heard, so why not Dobson? Free debate is a mark of a free society. That's something we still have here for the moment. Things could change pretty quickly.

Aint it great we can agree to disagree

I am prayilng God's will. I think we need to stop fuming about the the last 8 years. before that we had 8 years of pure si in office. I sincerely hope that John and Sarah are elected. However, I feel that the American people have so moved away from Godliness, that we may get just what we deserve. We need to remember that there is always a remnant saved, but if I am corrrect that remnant suffered with all the rest of the population. Our nation has become a society which demands instanst gratification and many who profess a belief in God are not committed to his service and witnessing for him. Thank you.

I am pro-life and I vote pro-life 100% of the time. I can not in any way believe that the God I have devoted my life to would condone abortion. That leaves me with no alternative but to vote for McCain-Palin. This election should not mean much to me since my mind has already been made up by this aspect but I feel it is one of the most if not the most important election in my lifetime.
I am appalled at the way the liberal media try to slant the issues toward Obama. I hope that people actually HEAR what is being said. I read one of the comments and they said that the republicans were slamming Obama. Well, I see just as much if not more slamming coming from the from Obama. I also think before anyone criticizes Sarah Palin or Dr. Dobson they need to take the plank out of their own eye!

I am pro-life as well, but living the Christian life is far too complex to be a single-issue voter dear sister Margaret. There are many Biblical values that need to be weighed when deciding how to vote.

I believe that good governance involves so much more than just how a candidate views abortion. National security, global economics, education, the environment, poverty, healthcare, military proliferation, domestic and international crime, etc., etc. The list seems endless. Being and follower of Christ and having access to God's wisdom can be invaluable, but being a competent President and Vice President of the United States requires much more than being a certain variety of Christian.

Note to "Marine Officer": Thank you for your service to me, my family and our country. I honor you and your family for the numerous sacrifices you have made that have gone unacknowledged by the general public. With that said though, I cannot believe that you find Gov. Palin to be "articulate." As a sister in Christ, I love her, but she has not demonstrated consistent competence or substantive communication since her nomination.

We as Christians have a responsiblility to God. In that responsibility I see alot of compromise on who Christians are voting this year. We need to follow what the Bible says no matter what!! How can you vote for Abortion, Same-sex marriage and not feel conviction? If you go God's way, God has you covered regarding the economy. We cannot let Satan distract us on the course that God needs us to go. I am sorry but I am a lover of Christ. You may call that a fanatic but it is he who I will face on judgement day not man. I cannot by any measure vote for Obama as he is not the man God has in store. If you are sick of the way the world is going that I suggest that YOU try and make it better. Sometimes it is hard to follow God but in the end it is the most rewarding!! Why are we not fighting and speaking up on the millions of unborn babies that die every day but you will fight for a animal right? The War is not good but obviously people have not done their Bible reading on prophecy. It is not good that volunteers that have enlisted in the military have died but we need to put the same energy towards the unvolunteers that are dieing everyday with no say.

I can't decide if it was irresponsibility or incipient senility or just bad judgement that goaded McCain to choose someone so incredibly unqualified as a running mate.

There is no way I would jeopardize the safety of this country by voting to have this incoherent woman within 1000 miles of the White House. Very frightening.

Yes, God is certainly soveriegn, but does that mean we are to vote for a man who calls himself the "hope" and the "change" that this world needs? Isn't GOD the hope and change we all need? How does Obama point people to God? He doesn't. It's him... he's the one who will be our "savior" in his eyes and in the eyes of those who adore him.

Isn't he very much an idol for many people? News media who says they get "tingles" up their legs, people who cry over him, who just want to "touch him," who call him "The One," and on and on and on. Hasn't he set himself up to be an idol through the words he chooses to speak? Not even Lincoln or Washington or Reagan spoke of themselves the way Obama speaks of himself.

Many people hate Palin because she bursts their bubble of idolotry over Obama. They do not want to face a single ugly reality about this man who excites them so. It was the same with "Joe the Plumber." Because of one simple question, he was "vetted" by media, hated by Obama supporters, and subjected to the type of scrutiny/shaming that Palin has had to face.

I'm sorry... but the only examples in history of this type of loyalty to a human being... well, they've been bad (Hitler, Chavez, Staliin, etc). Obama is exalted by himself and by many, and Palin is subjected to hate because her words dethrone him.

Palin is judged on her parenting skills, her wardrobe, her voice and words, and on and on and on. But the honest truth is, she is an extremely accomplished, intelligent, courageous woman who is competent and bright. How many women could survive what she has the past few months, and still come out with a smile and fighting for what she believes in? Not many.

People like Dobson, and myself, admire her for these things and others. I know for me, as a young woman, I am tired of angry feminist in-your-face combative women who believe they speak on my behalf and for all women. Palin represents me, and others, far more, and if I can accompish even half of what she has in her lifetime as well as she has, I will be very proud. She is an inspiration and role-model for many. Perhaps that's why Dobson admires her so.

There are so few women like her... so few Christian women willing to put themselves on the "front line" facing a VERY hostile anti-Christian world and willing to face their "god" (Obama) and knowing that if she knocks him off his throne, she will be crucified by his followers. As a Christian, her courage alone inspires me greatly! She is not ashamed of her faith even in the midst of a world that mocks her, curses her, hates her, and tries to shame her. Her faith is real and strong, and I am one of those millions who pray for her.

Someone said: "Dobson's last words worry me, in that he seems to suggest that millions of "our audience" - i.e. Christians - are praying that God will place McCain and Palin in office."

This person needs to go back and reread it. Dobson did NOT say that. He said that millions are "praying for McCain and Palin." PERIOD. NOWHERE did he say "that God will place them in office."

Maybe he is praying that but in the above quotes, he did not say that.

There is a difference between praying for someone and praying a specific thing for them.

Oh, and by the way, I too am praying for them AND I am praying that they will be in office! (I would never sign my name to a ballot for a man who does not protect the unborn, for one thing, but then there are tons of other reasons why I am not voting Obama).

"However, I feel that the American people have so moved away from Godliness, that we may get just what we deserve. We need to remember that there is always a remnant saved, but if I am corrrect that remnant suffered with all the rest of the population. Our nation has become a society which demands instanst gratification and many who profess a belief in God are not committed to his service and witnessing for him."

AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN! I FULLY agree. Every time I think of Obama winning, I think "They will only have themselves to blame" when months later, they still have their problems/issues and Obama has been both unable to keep all his promises and our society continues to only be more pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality, and even, I believe, less free speech and less freedoms for Christians with much more hostility towards Republicans/conservatives/Chrisitans and much more fights to remove godly things from this nation.

People care more about their money... their 401K's and their big houses and their cars, etc... than they do about all the unborn babies being killed every single day. The fact that the economy is the number 1 issue gives you insight into where people's hearts lie.

Of course, financial problems are no fun and health care, housing costs, etc. are extremely problematic, but as Chrsistians, this world is not our home and we have a higher purpose and plan than just financial comfort.

I can't help but wonder if an Obama win will be God's wrath/punishment on us... giving us what we have demanded, just like when the O.T. people demanded a king... they wanted a king more than they wanted God... they were unwilling to repent and submit to the One who could best help them in their lives (GOD). It's no different now. People want a man, not God. They want Obama, not Jesus Christ.

They might be given what they asked for, and they will certainly pay a price down the road.

Could someone please decipher for me what Mrs. Palin was trying to say when she talked about the Republican platform?

As read, it sounded as though she had no idea what she was talking about...

She seemed to be winging it... plank this and plank that...

Yes Mrs. Palin, platforms are made of planks... wooden planks...

I am a born again child of God, and as such, my allegience belongs only to Jesus Christ. I could never vote for a man who supports killing babies or anything else that contridicts Scripture. Too many people talk the talk but can't walk the walk. If you know God as any child of God does, you would NEVER vote for Obama. McCain was not my first choice, but up against a man like Obama, there is no pondering the decision. All people think about when voting is the almighty dollar. They will sell out their soul as Judus did in order to worship what money can buy. My faith in the Living God and His promises asure me that my needs will be supplied and I am forever in the palm of His Hand. I trust completely in the One who fed the 5000 and parted the Red Sea. God said, "I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor His seed begging bread." My concern when approaching this election is which man supports Godly issues?" If Obama goes in as president, be aware, people will awake to an utter nightmare. However, it will be too late. You chose the man as did people who chose Barabbus instead of Jesus. The Church is sleeping and living in complacency, not caring which way our country goes.
Thank you,
A DEVOTED FAN OF JESUS CHRIST living in Alabama.

Rightousness. We must vote for Gods Rightousness. the judges in the land will make our laws and uphold the old ones. Thus we must abide. Do you want liberal or constructionist judges. Do your homework. God said Matt 6:33. See ye first....first! the kingdom of God and his Rightousness. that should be what your seeking. Then all other things will fall into place. You will answer to God for how you vote, so it better be based on how the spirit leads you and not race, party, gendor or anyother thing, but by his spirit and keeping his rightousness in this land!

I think many people will be surprised whenthey wake up on the morning of Nov 5th. We are all so busy that we expect the media to do the work for us, instead of doing the research for ourselves.

We have been slowly changing as a society over the years. An election used to mean something. I find that the majority of people really do not care one way or the other who is elected. These are the ones who need help understanding the real issues of our lives. Think about this..whoever is elected we as a country must support our president/VicePresident! The media has blasted George Bush on every thing that is wrong in our government. Guess what folks, the government has been a mess for years, each President inherits the messy parts as well as the good ones, but I would like to remind people that we are to support/respect those who are in authority above us. A lot of people just do not care and will Not vote because of the fact we have taken George Bush through the meat grinder. Who of you have faced Parents/family/friends of those killed on 9/11? I doubt whether many of us could handle the situation any better than Our President. Yes, our nation will face a judgement regarding choices we make during our lives. Let's just be very careful of how we listen to the comments the media put into our ears and hearts.

Many of American voter will be judged because of MURDER SIN and can not enter the Gate of Heaven because they had voted pro-abortion President although they do not pratice abortion.

You can read this Warning on www.harvestwarriors.com Newsletter.

It is my obligation to warn you, because I know this is true.
I am an Indonesian Christian who concern about the US President Election.

Thank you.

Can someone please explain to me how Bush or McCain have protected the unborn? One a President and one a long-time Senator and I have not seen it.
Our elected officials take an oath to uphold the law, so I understand that there was no way they could overturn Roe v Wade. No President can, unfortunately. But Obama knows that education and family values taught at home will greatly reduce the practice. Obama has ONE wife, ONE house, ONE car - and he walks the walk of a true Christain to my eyes. Thanks.
