Lautenberg Asks Bush Administration To Condemn Dobson Comments

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) has asked a top White House official to condemn remarks by conservative activist Dr. James Dobson.

On the Aug. 3 edition of his Focus on the Family radio show, Dobson compared embryonic stem cell research to Nazi experiments on human beings. Two days later, Dobson, reacting to a letter from the Anti-Defamation League, said he wouldn't apologize for the comments.

Lautenberg wrote to President Bush's top domestic policy advisor, Claude A. Allen, appeared on the Aug. 4 edition of Focus on the Family, but failed to condemn the Nazi comparison.

In Lautenberg's letter to Allen, he urged that Allen and the White House disassociate itself from Dobson's comments.

"I urge you, as a representative of the President, to condemn Dr. Dobson's remarks and make clear that the President doesn't equate embryonic stem cell research with Nazi atrocities," Lautenberg wrote. "The President must send a clear message to the overwhelming majority of Americans who support stem cell research that he respects their views and doesn't hold them in the same moral category as Nazi scientists."

For far, far too long, Republicans have paid NO political price for the loony rantings of their backers and benefactors. Meanwhile, every time Michael Moore hiccups or a crapulous posting shows up for five minutes on the Move On website, every Democratic politician from here to St. Swithins Day is forced to either denounce Moore or Move On, or be tarred with the same broad brush.

Even though Michael Moore and Move On wield very little actual policy-making power (by contrast to Focus on the Family), all the pundits know that their every utterance must be denounced in the strongest possible terms, and any Democrat who fails to denounce them strongly enough is immediately dismissed.

It's no secret that James Dobson and Focus on the Family have a big influence in the corrupt Bush administration, yet whenever Dobson or his bastard organization say something loony or offensive, all the commentators seem to know that they're not to hold the Bushistas accountable for what their political handmaidens say.

The President should go tell "Lousenberg" to take a walk. Taking moral recommendations from that fake, phony, fraud is like taking marriage counseling from former Gov. McGreevy. Bush administration, corrupt? Tell that to the Serbs who were bombed to hell by a the disgraced Clinton regime. Wake Up! anonymous.
