Dick Armey Off His Rocker

In an October 12 diatribe on his web site, former House Majority Leader Dick Armey made some absolutely unbelievable statements regarding Focus On the Family founder Dr. James Dobson.

I have been a listener of Dr. Dobson's for several years and Mr. Armey's assertions are difficult to understand. He basically accuses Dr. Dobson of being a liberal, of all things. That is the equivalent of Bill Clinton calling Barbara Streisand a conservative.

Here is an excerpt from Dr. Dobson's rebuttal:

Read the full letter here.

"...he has implied that I am among those who favor a government monopoly of schools, government-funded 'art,' taxpayer supported 'family planning' organizations, taxpayer support for churches and nanny-state activism. Where has this man been? I have fought all of those policies tooth and nail, notably while in his presence."

I agree with Dobson who suspects that Armey has a beef with him over some past disagreements. It's too bad that such a great man like Armey would stoop so low to attack a solid conservative like James Dobson.
