FINDLAY, Ohio (CNN) –- In an interview posted online Wednesday, Sarah Palin told Dr. James Dobson of “Focus on the Family” that she is confident God will do “the right thing for America” on Nov. 4.
Dobson asked the vice presidential hopeful if she is concerned about John McCain’s sagging poll numbers, but Palin stressed that she was “not discouraged at all.”
“To me, it motivates us, makes us work that much harder,” she told the influential Christian leader, whose radio show reaches millions of listeners daily. “And it also strengthens my faith because I know at the end of the day putting this in God’s hands, the right thing for America will be done, at the end of the day on Nov. 4.”
Dobson praised Palin's opposition to abortion rights, to which the governor affirmed that she is “hardcore pro-life.”
She said giving birth to her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, has given her the opportunity “to be walking the walk and not just talking the talk” in her long-standing opposition to abortion.
Dobson - who has never been warm to McCain - asked Palin if her “private conversations” with the GOP nominee had revealed a true commitment to the Republican party’s pro-life platform, which calls for a constitutional amendment banning abortions.
"I do, from the bottom of my heart," Palin assured Dobson. “John McCain is solidly there on those solid planks in our platform that build the right agenda for America.”
She also thanked her supporters - including Dobson, who said he and his wife were asking “for God’s intervention” on election day - for their prayers of support.
“It is that intercession that is so needed,” she said. “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.”
The interview was taped on Monday by phone while Palin was campaigning in Colorado Springs, where “Focus on the Family” is headquartered.
Where is the story on Palin's $150,000.00 shopping spree?
God does the right thing everyday! What's her point?
Apparently Sarah's god reserves the right to change what the majority decides. Sarah, the Taliban leaders want you on their team!
God will do the right thing on election day?....will she still believe this when she and Mccain are on the losing end?
You use God to further your own agenda. That is the one unforgivable sin.
We the People will throw you out. Just as Christ told us to do. Just as he did to the money changers in the temple.
We reject your hate.
We reject your anger.
We reject you.
I am so tired of, and disgusted with this woman. What was McCain thinking? November 4th can't come soon enough. And I'm a REPUBLICAN!!!
God is going to decide the outcome? Seriously? Why doesn't she just ask for rule by theocracy?? What a scary scary woman!!!!
Anyone else out there a fan of the country western song that goes, "I thank God for unanswered prayers"? Right now it looks like God isn't paying that much attention to Palin's prayers.
Can you say " Twilight Zone " . This woman does not need to do anymore interviews.
Whose God is Palin talking about? My God is not involved in political outcomes.
Agreeing with Beverlee's comment, God is not registered to vote. But we are: and this Christian will be casting her vote for Barack Obama on November 4th along with millions of others. The Christian Right has to stop claiming God as solely theirs.
She never said they would win. She said the right thing would happen. So before you guys start trying to spin her comments, read the actual quotes.
It saddens me that Americans can make fun of john McCain disability, from when he was a POW.
YOU ARE RIGHT!!!! GOD WILL BLESS AMERICA BY GETTING RID OF THE REPUBLICANS ON NOV 4TH!!!
Response to "Sweetie":
You do not fight for women by being anti-everything that women have fought for. You are not a fighter for women, you are a fighter for the status-quo . Get a backbone.
Real women for America vote for Obama.
Obama, because McCain is not a "choice".
God sure will do the right thing on election day
I wonder sometimes if Republicans and Conservatives ever considered that God is not American.
What will it mean if McCain/Palin doesn't win? Will it mean that God did the right thing for America?
The arrogance astounds me.
you are right Sara.God will do the right thing by putting Obama/Biden at the White House.
for the first i agree with you
THIS WOMAN IS SCARY
Yes, yes he will. God has a purpose for you, he needs you to go back to Alaska and watch after those Russians.
I'm so sick of people that convey an evil energy speaking of God as if they are suddenly connected to God .
Put OBAMA/BIDEN in the White House, That is the right think that God would do on Nov 4. AMEN
What's the difference between George Bush and Sarah Palin?
oops meant James Dobson not Lou!
give me a break !!! God will do the right thing ??? Yeah he will do the right thing. Obama will win and Palin will be back in Alaska !!! :)
