Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (, on Super Tuesday.

"I am deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, voted for embryonic stem-cell research to kill nascent human beings, opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, has little regard for freedom of speech, organized the Gang of 14 to preserve filibusters in judicial hearings, and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language.
"I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are. He has sounded at times more like a member of the other party. McCain actually considered leaving the GOP caucus in 2001, and approached John Kerry about being Kerry's running mate in 2004.  McCain also said publicly that Hillary Clinton would make a good president. Given these and many other concerns, a spoonful of sugar does NOT make the medicine go down.  I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience.
"But what a sad and melancholy decision this is for me and many other conservatives. Should Sen. McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime. I certainly can't vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions. If these are the nominees in November, I simply will not cast a ballot for president for the first time in my life. These decisions are my personal views and do not represent the organization with which I am affiliated. They do reflect my deeply held convictions about the institution of the family, about moral and spiritual beliefs, and about the welfare of our country."
413-423Tony Perkins,
428-437Tom McClintock ( on how he would vote on the California propositions (
Yes on 91 Transportation Funding Protection.  This measure flatly prohibits Sacramento from raiding our highway taxes to paper over their budget deficits.  When a watered-down version of Prop. 91 was adopted by the legislature, its sponsors dropped this measure after it qualified.  Nevertheless, if you want to genuinely protect our transportation taxes from being raided, Prop 91 is the Real McCoy.
No on 92 Guaranteed Funding for Community Colleges.  This can best be described as a Prop. 98 for community colleges – guaranteeing them a growing level of funding from the state's tax revenues regardless of their actual attendance, their performance or the state's fiscal condition and priorities.  If you like straight-jackets, you'll love Prop. 92.
N/A Prop. 93 Term Limits.  Current term limits are a maximum of 14 years in the legislature: six in the Assembly and eight in the Senate – which is why you see so much office-hopping.  Prop. 93 reduces the maximum to 12 years in the legislature, but allows them to be served in the same house.  Since I've only served eight years in the Senate, Prop. 93 would give me one final term; if it fails I must retire this year.  Because I have a conflict of interest, I'm staying out if it.
Yes on 94-97 Indian Gaming Compacts.  These propositions ratify the compacts that allow four tribes to expand their casinos.  I'm not a gambler, but it's none of government's business how people spend their money.  I'm tired of government restrictions on enterprise, and I'm tired of government telling us what we can and can't do.  And our economy desperately needs the new jobs and investment.
443-452(:39) James Dobson on Dennis Prager today, I'll abstain if it's Hillary, Obama, or McCain.
(:43) James Dobson says he'd vote for Romney if he's the nominee.
(:25) James Dobson says he'd vote for Huckabee if he's the nominee.
458-508Jed Babbin, former undersecretary of defense and Air Force JAG officer, is today the editor of Human Events (, with his thoughts on Super Tuesday.
512-523Who'd you vote for and why?
528-539 (:31) Richard Land says thousands will die under a nationalized health care system like that proposed by the Democrats.
Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute (, analyzes Hillary's and Obama's health care plans.  Will they garnish wages as an enforcement mechanism

544-554(:39) James Dobson on Dennis Prager today, saying he'll sit this one out if McCain wins the nomination.
558-608Should the FDA prohibit blood donations from sexually-active gay men?  Should they prohibit people who have gotten a tattoo within the past year?  30,000 student San Jose State is banning all blood drives because they think the policy is discrimination.  High school and college campuses account for 20% of all donated blood.

• WSJ Online, The 'Stimulus' Deficit. 
Rush Limbaugh has been relentless in his criticism of John McCain, prompting suggestions that he may have to soften his stance if the Arizona senator wins the nomination and faces off against Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. But if that happens, Limbaugh said in an interview over the weekend, he would rather see the Democrats win the White House.
"If I believe the country will suffer with either Hillary, Obama or McCain, I would just as soon the Democrats take the hit . . . rather than a Republican causing the debacle," he said. "And I would prefer not to have conservative Republicans in the Congress paralyzed by having to support, out of party loyalty, a Republican president who is not conservative."
