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.
ANOTHER REASON TO VOTE OBAMA-BIDEN
ANOTHER REASON TO VOTE OBAMA-BIDEN
ANOTHER REASON TO VOTE OBAMA-BIDE
YES GOD WILL, WILL BE DONE ON NOV 4TH BECAUSE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA ARE FINALLY REALIZING HOW UNSTABLE THIS COUNTRY WILL BE WITH A PALIN-MCCAIN TICKET AND I DID PUT PALIN FIRST BECAUSE SHE IS KILLING MCCAIN'S CAMPAIGN.
I wonder if she'll say, "Oh, I guess God thinks we're wrong" if Obama wins.
All you bleeding heart liberals need to start learning to speak French, because Barack O blah blah is taking us down a road to socialism. Next, we will have dropped the Dollar in favor of the Euro, and we will all be drinking wine and eating cheese -- with 20% unemployment and a bankrupt social security and medicare system. Congratulations, a gang of idiots is about to destroy this country.
And thank you Barney Franl, Chris Dodd, and Barack Obama for receivng more campaign contributions from Fannie Mae than anyone else in DC -–
I had previously thought that Palin is a brainless twit, and felt nothing but pity for her.
Now I'm afraid.
What an insane statement
Keep your religious beliefs to yourself McMoose and go back to the North Pole where people CAN stand listening to you
So now 'God' controls elections
This woman is more dangerous than Cheney and Bush put together
This lady is just not ready to lead, and I think that we as Americans needs to stop fooling ourselfs thinking that she is.
I wonder which one of those $3000 suits she wore from the wardrobe that the campaign spent $150k on?
then God will smite SP from the Earth
BELIEVERS FOR BARACK!!!!!
reply to Sweetie:
What are you on????
You can have a "high-tech" job under McCain, but he is against paying you the same as a man for it!
Fighting for women????? I am a woman, and that twit Palin does not fight for anything I stand for! Equal rights, right over my own body, family values, just to name a few.
Walk what walk? The self righteous swagger??? Those are shoes I personally have no DESIRE to walk in!
She does not defend those who need defending! She defends her own self interests. Oh she is all for "reform of government" I certainly DO NOT want my tax dollars paying for her entire family to stay at swanky hotels for 4 days to attend (un invited) a 5 hour seminar. "THANKS, BUT NO THANKS"
I suppose if GOD were registered to vote, she'd claim that it was proof of ACORN's devious plan to commit voter registration fraud.
THE WOMAN IS JUST STUPID. EVERYTHING SHE DOES AND SAYS IS JUST STUPID. STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES.
Will you call God anti-American if Obama wins?
God should sit this one out. He's done enough damage.
Ann–you are a very good person. God bless you!
why did she have Downs testing if she would not abort?
Yes, God will do the right thing for Ameria on election day. He will allow the McCain-Palin campaign be defeated.
I think there is not much difference between Palin's views and the radical jihaad muslims in the middle east. Same ill-information and misread interpretations. Only thing is she is christian and they are muslims, that's all. No other difference.
Dr.Dobson knows how to bundle cash.
So God takes sides now? Palin is a far right religious fanatic! I say God help us all...
ummm... when has God ever did the "wrong" thing??? And if the right thing to do is for McCain/Palin to win vs Obama/Biden, will God be at fault if they don't? Does this woman actually think about the things she says before she actually says them? Palin has never introduced religion into this campaign,... actually she was trying to keep her religion private,... but now she is happy and open to talk about God!!! I wish we could remove the names, skin color and gender of the candidates and vote based off of their content. Every american should get a blindfold, and we'll call it the Presidential Challenge sorta like the Pepsi Challenge.
God should do the right thing and send palin back to her igloo
people, please vote,... wow... she's unreal...
To "The Republican Conscience" I can tell you right now we don't want her in Canada!! Send her back to Alaska.
How dare she pretend to be "Joe Six Pack" and then spend $150,000 of campaign contributions on clothing and makeup, read the latest on Huff Post. Even republicans are outraged and appalled. That's four times Joe the Plumber's salary! and more than the average American family spends in 80 years!
At least the party says she doesn't get to keep the clothes and they will be given to charity, but for heavens sake, in this economic climate and with her supposed populist message, it's the most ever spent in history on a political candidate......I'm speechless.
Sarah, I am a christian God does not decide elections. People have a right to vote for the person they think will do the job. God gives each of us a choice and we live with that choice. Just like Adam and Eve.
Our prayers is who ever is elected they will be protected and govern as best they can. Don't blame God for winners or losers.
