Bristol Palin's gay marriage rant: Obama girls watch too much 'Glee'
Politico ^ | 5/10/2012 | By CAITLIN MCDEVITT

Posted on 05/10/2012 11:17:00 AM PDT by Bill Buckner

Bristol Palin thinks it’s laughable that President Barack Obama’s children influenced his decision to support same-sex marriage.

“While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” Bristol, the eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, wrote in a blog post titled “Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama” on Thursday.

Obama said on Wednesday that his daughers' acceptance of friends with same-sex parents helped prompt his "change in perspective." In response, Palin writes:

In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s 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.

In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.

Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.

Heh. It has to be a bit depressing to learn that Bristol Palin would be a better father than you.

Damm girl! This one is going to sting. I fully expect obama’s sycophant prostitute media to go ape sh** over this and call her things that none of us could ever get away with as conservatives.. Or real Americans.. Not the domestic terrorist media... Being hypocrates is something to be proud of to them

But again, go Bristol go!

seems like the old recycled plot where the kids are the one’s with the wisdom, and in the end, the well intentioned but misinformed parents are brought over to the kid’s side of reason.

President Carter mentioned his daughter during a 1980 debate with Ronald Reagan, when he said he had asked her what the most important issue in that election was and she said, "the control of nuclear arms".

Democrats look to their children to explain a world that is too complex for grownup Liberals to understand.

Too bad Bristol forgot to mention Amy Carter’s nuclear disarmament proposals to her father. Of course, Jimmy didn’t ACTUALLY put that policy change into place . . .

that is unnecessary commenting.

Obama, by stating he is taking advise from children is demonstrating he has failed as a father. He is paroting the hippie/be a pal/no waves 1960’s nonsence.

He just endorsed a behavior that is ONLY about recreational sex based on the input of his CHILDREN. The association to the recomendation is inheritly vile.

I doubt very much he is advising his children to recreatate or experiment on that issue. Nobody in the MSM is calling him out on the absurdity of the obviously fake anecdote.

Bristol is absolutely right. God gave parents the responsibility to be the moral leaders of the family, based on the truth of the Word. He never said to abdicate that role to the kids just so parents could appear “cool.”

Of course a good Christian father would be forbidding his young impressionable children from associating with “families” whose “parents” engage is such vile behavior.

But we’re talking about Liberals here, who want to rid the world of all morality.

It seems like Demo presidents always seek the advice of their children in world affairs. Billy Clinton sought the advice from his daughter Chelsea while the Nobel Peace prize was dancing in his head in an effort to bring Arafat to accept an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

You can’t tell me little johnny going to parents/teacher night is going to be pro same sex marriage. Ah, Mrs. Applebee this is my Dad, and this is my Ah, other Dad. Obama is a complete moron as are the other socialist democrats who so want to be politically correct they forget the consequences.

I think she has hit upon something really important here. This looking to the youngsters for leadership rather than instructing them is really at the heart of almost ALL of the cultural decline we see. When it does not come directly from the kids, the Liberals implant it in them at school and then send them home to shame and nag their parents.

Good answer. I was also struck by the fact that in ignorance I thought parents who would take the opportunity to send their children to a Quaker school would expect more from exposure at that school than their daughters being being grossly influenced by some students gay parents. This is exactly why God never envisioned gay couples being moral. Is it so hard for some people to accept God’s Plan of creation as He designed it that they have to resort to such extreme escapism as homosexuality?
