DOBSON CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT WENT WRONG…. James Dobson of Focus on Family recently published an unintentionally hilarious, 15-page manifesto (pdf), describing the state of the nation in 2012, after four years of an Obama presidency. It was dystopian, speculative fiction at its most paranoid.

I guess it wasn’t too surprising then that Dobson was shocked when Obama actually won. Hadn’t people read his manifesto?

“Our hope is in the Lord, and we cannot forget that,” Dr. Dobson said. “He doesn’t make mistakes. He hasn’t lost control of things. He understands our fatigue and maybe our disappointment.

“I want to admit that I am in the midst of a grieving process at this time…. I’m not grieving over Barack Obama’s victory, but over the loss of things that I’ve fought for, for 35 years.

Dr. Dobson went on to congratulate Obama on “his stunning victory.”

“It was indeed a historic accomplishment, to be the first black man in American history to be elected to the highest office in the land.

“But, to be honest, I have to say that his win causes me enormous concern because he will be the most committed pro-abortion president in our history,” Dr. Dobson said. “He’s in favor of much of the homosexual agenda and he’s going to appoint the most liberal justices to the Supreme Court, perhaps that we’ve ever had. So, there are many reasons why I’m struggling today over the likely path that the nation has taken.”

Dobson was able to boast, however, about several state initiatives barring gay marriage.

He’s convinced that Obama wants to destroy the world as we know it, but at least gay couples won’t be able to get married in Arizona, California, and Florida.
