Dobson’s 2008 Strategy Examined

“It’s not a coincidence that you saw Dr. Dobson attacking Fred Thompson when he did,” says a former associate of Dobson’s. “There’s a strategy here, and it’s about clearing the way for Gingrich to get in.

“Newt Gingrich is examining whether or not to enter a “testing the waters” campaign phase beginning the first week of October.  According to Gingrich associates, he is mulling an announcement tour that would include appearances on one major Sunday morning show next weekend, along with several Fox News shows on Monday, as well as an appearance on Dr. James Dobson’s radio show

Giuliani Speaking at the NRA

The National Rifle Association  will be holding a “Celebration of American Values” this weekend in Washington DC.

Speakers include some of the movement’s best-known conservatives, both on and off the presidential ballot, including Newt Gingrich, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, Fred D. Thompson and Senator John McCain. But perhaps the most-watched remarks will be those given by Rudolph W. Giuliani, who was a vocal supporter of gun control as mayor of New York.
