Bristol Palin Obama marriage

Bristol Palin Obama marriage

Bristol Palin Obama marriage, Obama and 'Glee' in gay-marriage rant, Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, is none too pleased with President Barack Obama's new support for gay marriage. The unwed mother slammed Obama for his position on the subject, writing in a blog post  that "kids do better growing up in a mother/father home," while also blasting the president's children for influencing his decision, saying that they've seen "one too many episodes of 'Glee'The former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant honed in on the fact that Obama's decision for the announcement was influenced by his teenage daughters writing in part on her
blog, “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. 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.”The 21-year-old continued, “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.”

Using a bit of snarky sarcasm Palin added, “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.”

Bristol wrapped up the message titled "Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama" by concluding, “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.’”
On her blog, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin quotes a passage from Obama's statement in which he describes encountering young people who influenced his stance on the issue:

"It’s interesting, some of this is also generational,” the president continued. “You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same-sex equality or, you know, sexual orientation, that they believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we’re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them and, frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.

After noting questions from the press to Christian female political candidates about "submission" to their husbands, Bristol's Blog goes for the president's throat:

So let me get this straight – it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?

While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. 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.

The blog entry deftly bypasses the college Republicans the president says contributed to his personal re-evaluation, and it does not clarify what society's "thousands of years of thinking about marriage" refers to.

Research has revealed that marriage traditions and family units worldwide and over time have taken a wide range of forms, including same-sex households. During the Bush administration, in fact, the American Anthropological Association issued a statement based on the research of its members that directly contradicts the notion that heterosexual marriage is the exclusive basis of a stable society.

Perhaps Bristol's Blog was referring to the marriage practices of the Mosuo, a matriarchal ethnic group in China in which biological fathers don't rear children and reproduction is unrelated to the institution of marriage?If that were the case, it would perfectly suit the circumstances of Palin's own life as a single mother whose family reportedly assists in the raising of her child, Tripp. The Palin family has in the past criticized Levi Johnston, the boy's biological father, for not being highly involved in parenting, and Johnston has at times publicly complained of being denied access to the child. Either way, the situation has sometimes sounded very much like a traditional Mosuo arrangement, except with
Ellen DeGeneres, Kim Kardashian, Dianna Agron and many others were overjoyed Thursday when President Barack Obama said publicly that he supports gay marriage. But Bristol Palin, separating herself from Hollywood's elite, slammed Obama's endorsement for equality on her Patheos blog.

In fact, the 21-year-old single mom (and daughter of former vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin) also took digs at the president's children Sasha and Malia, first lady Michelle Obama...and Glee. "Is anyone really surprised by the fact that President Obama came out of the closet for gay marriage?" Bristol wrote. "What was most surprising is when he explained how his position (supposedly) 'evolved' by talking to his wife and daughters."

"So let me get this straight—it's a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad," she reasoned. "But it's a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?"

In Obama's interview with Good Morning America, he said that his daughters (Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13) had friends with same-sex couple parents. "It doesn't make sense to them," that these friends' parents should be treated differently, Obama said, adding, "that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective."

Palin didn't see it that way. "While it's great to listen to your kids' ideas, there's also a time when dads simply need to be dads," she wrote. "In this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while [their friends'] parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage."

The former Dancing With the Stars contestant also reasoned that "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."

She added that it "would've been nice" if Obama had "been an actual leader and helper shape [his daughters'] thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee."
Glee" is bad for America ... so says Bristol Palin ... who just took a shot at the show during an anti-gay marriage blog entry aimed at Barack Obama.Palin makes it clear -- she believes Obama is a weak, pathetic, stupid man for allowing his daughters to influence his opinion on gay marriage.
In her blog entry, Palin writes, "While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. 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."
The 21-year-old unwed mother continues, "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."
"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."
Then comes the shot at "Glee" ... as Palin continues, "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."
