Those Fickle, Fickle Republicans!

James Dobson, chairman of Focus on the Family, says it's not evangelicals' fault that the GOP lost both houses of the U.S. Congress this week. Republicans ignored so-called "values voters," he believes, and that was their undoing.

"When Congressional Republicans wait until the first of October to begin reaching out to their base, they are destined to lose," Dobson said in a press release. "That was the GOP's downfall. They consistently ignored the constituency that put them in power until it was late in the game, and then frantically tried to catch up at the last minute."

All that said, Focus did its part to get out the conservative vote, pleading with voters via radio, letters and e-mail to "vote their values."
