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.
Reminds me when they were praying for rain on Obama's acceptance speech. How'd God do then....
Can you please do a story on Palin discussing what the Vice President's role is. You can get the story from huffington post.
Vote to put Obama in the white house! Vote to send Palin back to Alaska!
God is not on your side on this one Sarah. This election will go to That One with Gods help.
Great news! I hope when Obama wins, Republicans will finally admit that God cares about ALL the people in this country instead of just small town folks and millionaires, as Palin seems to believe.
I would be funny if the media asks her on Nov. 5th, after Obama wins, if that's what she meant by saying "God will do the right thing", I wonder what would be her answer!
Keep it up Sarah!! Every word out of your mouth brings us closer to a landslide!
OBAMA/BIDEN 2008 & Beyond!
Contrary to popular GOP opinion, yes you can be Christian, a Democrat, and sincere! What ever made them think that they had a foothold on Christianity? BTW, what they practice ISN'T Christian.
If Barack Obama is elected, will God have done the right thing? Will he be our rightful God-given leader? Or does God vote Republican....
Yup, he will pay back all that money you spend on all your supposed business trips with your kids using Alaskan state funds right??
"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."
this is SICK!
what a joke.
did she consult her witch doctor before making those statements?
What state does God vote in?
Please do a story on palin's explanation of what the vice president duties are.
I totally agree. God will do the right thing for America. We can thank him for bringing us President Obama.
Who would Jesus vote for?
If God has a hand in selecting presidents, then where was he or she when Bush got elected into office. Any benevolent super entity would have spared the world the disaster of the past eight years.
Reminds me of when they prayed for rain on Obama's acceptance speech....
Republicans are not the only ones who Pray. God will do the right thing. Barak Obama will be the next president of these United States.
She is so SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Baze ...I couldn't agree more.
God! has nothing to do with politics! Pray! Sarah, Pray! LMAO
Okay.... I'm officially over this woman. She's no longer worth laughing at.
That One/Biden 08
YES HE WILL!! He will help end bigotry by helping Senator Obama become president of the United States of America.
In Jesus Name!!
