Skip to comments.Bristol Palin rips President Obama
Posted on 05/19/2012 12:24:36 PM PDT by Mozilla
Bristol Palin, one of Americas most famous political daughters, is outraged that President Obama is taking advice from his own children.
The 21-year-old lashed out at the commander-in-chief, who said Malia,13, and Sasha,10, helped influence his decision to support gay marriage.
While its great to listen to your kids ideas, theres also a time when dads simply need to be dads, the former Alaska governors daughter argued in a blog on Thursday.
It was aptly titled Hail to the Chiefs Malia and Sasha Obama.
Palin a single mom herself then argued children are raised in homes where there is both a mother and a father.
In this case, it wouldve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, thats not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that as great as her friends may be we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids worldview.

Just another way to get to Mamma Bear.
Well considering the extremely mind boggling personal insults the Palins went through from the left and still go through, they can go stick it.
Not hard to do : )
No surprises here.
Bristol Palin was once named the worst person in the world by Keith Olbermann.
Her crime? Her crime, to Keith and liberals, is that she became pregnant without a husband, and had the audacity to work with a foundation, which tries to help girls avoid the mistakes which lead to unwed motherhood.
For trying to help girls avoid a major problem in their lives, Bristol Palin is lampooned by liberals. For trying to help girls avoid mistakes she herself can speak of from personal experience, she is condemned.
Remember, that these liberals see nothing bad about unwed motherhood. Since in the liberal mind, we’re supposed to be completely non-judgemental, there should be no judgements made about Bristol Palin over having a baby without a husband.
And what’s up with criticizing her work with the foundation to help girls avoid pregnancy? Would Keith Olbermann or anyone else, criticize the alcoholics who run Alcoholics Anonymous, for their work in urging others to avoid drinking problems?
I just can’t imagine that Bristol is a lighting rod, for having personal experience with a major social problem, having acknowledged her own mistakes, and trying to help others learn from her own personal mistakes. This kind of derision directed towards her would not be directed towards anyone else trying to do something about a major social problem.
Lots of things are erroneously deemed “hypocrisy” these days, but Bristol Palin blathering on about how much better kids do with a mother AND a father is a giant glowing neon example. Hypocrisy at its worst.
She didn’t marry her son’s father or give him up at birth to be adopted by a married couple.
Now that it’s too late for her to do either of things, she should at least be quiet.
I am growing in admiration for this young women. She made a bad life choice and a bad choice in a mate, but she has made lemon-aide as best she can from the sour fruit.
Good for her! I hope she continues to speak out and will run for office someday.
Sorry your stomach is so sensitive.
Bristol Palin claims to know the importance of fathers, and yet she has chosen — and continues to choose — not to provide her son with one.
Since she isn’t saying anything useful such as “Marry your baby’s father” or “Give your baby up for adoption to a married couple,” she should say nothing at all to young women.
You make a good point which I had not thought about. Thanks for the insight.
I have felt that it was good for her to encourage girls to avoid getting pregnant without marriage, and avoid the involvement with boys which lead to that. But you make a good point, that she neither married that guy, nor gave up the baby for adoption. In that sense, you’re right, she chose to be a single mother, with all of the problems that entails.
To paraphrase a movie I saw about teen pregnancy, out of a garbage dump of a situation of teen pregnancy, adoption gives the adopting family a blessing. Unfortunately, our culture is so accepting of single motherhood, that too few consider the adoption option.
I believe in adoption, but I also think that we should try to make the best of bad situations. She has a great and supportive family. There are plenty of good male role models in their family. The grandfather - Todd - and the great grandfather - Sarah's Dad - get no better. The child is in great hands... plus, Bristol is a pistol. She seems to be a great mom.
“I don’t see why she would take the chance of putting her baby out into the world”
The risk is negligible. In public adoptions, adoptive parents are vetted as if for a high security clearance. In private adoptions, since there are so many couples who want a baby, people with infants to place can be as choosy as they like about prospective parents.
What it comes down to is selfishness on the part of Bristol Palin. She preferred to keep her baby rather than give him the best possible chance in life.
That’s her right. But in terms of “making the best of bad situations,” let’s not pretend for one second adoption isn’t the best thing for any kid in this situation, even a famous Palin.
“There are plenty of good male role models in their family.”
Yeah, libs have been selling a “good male role model” as an acceptable substitute for a father in the home married to the mother for years now. And how has that worked out? Does anyone really buy it anymore?
Flip the script. Would you say that “a good female role model” is an acceptable substitute for a mother in the home married to the father? It’s absurd.
That we pretend otherwise — that “it takes a village” and “good male role models” are acceptable substitutes for married fathers and mothers — is one of the reasons we’re in such big trouble.
If she were really a “great mom,” Bristol Palin would have married the father or given up her son to a married couple immediately after birth. That’s putting your child first — which is what “great moms” do. Since she didn’t, I’m not interested in anything else she has to say.
Every kid deserves a mother and a father married to each other.
The left hates Bristol because she didn’t abort her baby.
“....she should say nothing at all to young women.”
She wasn’t saying anything to young women. Her post was addressed to a 50 year old man who sits in the Oval Office.
She was suggesting that it would be the role of a father in the scenario that the powerful 50 year old man spoke about, to inform his young daughters that while their friends’ homosexual parents are likely fine people, that is anecdotal and not strong enough reason to change a societal norm that has stood the test of time.
The Obama sisters, by the way are not “young women.” They are girls. The older one is 13 years old. There are not many issues on which they are well enough informed or experienced to be influencing the President of the United States.
If my child messed up and got pregnant or someone pregnant, I would want them to keep the baby and myself and my family would do everything we could to help raise the child.
That is me. You have a different view on life. I am glad you are at least pro-life.
BTW, what do you think about all the young women who have small kids or are pregnant and their husbands have been killed fighting in our military? Do you require they give their children up for adoption?
I really don't want Obama addressing any parenting issue.
“BTW, what do you think about all the young women who have small kids or are pregnant and their husbands have been killed fighting in our military? Do you require they give their children up for adoption?”
Absolutely not! Every reputable study shows conclusively, by every measure, that children of widows do as well in life as the children of two-parent families.
The children of never-married mothers and women who divorced, not so much.
There’s a lot of info on this in Ann Coulter’s latest book, “Demonic.”
I question who raised you with the comments you made.
I stopped reading Ann.
I have no doubt that these children are raised well. I also have no doubt Bristol’s child will be raised well.
“I question who raised you with the comments you made.”
A father and a mother who were (and are) married to each other.
Which means I had a significantly greater chance of not having children out of wedlock myself, not living in poverty, and not being sexually or otherwise physically abused. Oh, and not being murdered by a mother’s “boyfriend.”
None of those things happened to me. I give all the credit to my parents.
I was referring to Dilbert’s post about Bristol Palin’s foundation work and her advice book, both of which are directed at young women.
I agree with you, I’m not swayed by the views of children on social issues, even the children of presidents.
