Vice President candidate, Sarah Palin, has a 17yr old daughter who is pregnant. Honorless partisan hacks from the left end of the political spectrum (ie the new base of the New Democratic Party) have created several conspiracy theories and flooded the internet (subsequently cable news as well) with the most unsavory public accusations and comments.
It’s disgusting. It should not only stop, but never should have started. How such ‘open-minded’/”liberal” people could say such things and do such things to a young woman in a time of immeasurable stress is just beyond me. It’s beyond Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama as well.
“I have said it before, and I will repeat again,” he said, “People’s families are off-limits. And people’s children are especially off-limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know, my mother had me when she was 18 and how a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn’t be a topic of our politics.”
Yet, it continues. Go to any “liberal” or “progressive” website that has a forum, and you’ll see near chaos, a shade shy of absolute hatred, and the dumbest things every posted. Senator Obama is powerless to control or influence his followers (is he really their leader then?).
What makes this far more amazing is that Senator Obama’s truest claim to fame is his alleged ability to bring people together; to show us all that we are not red states and blue states, we are not Republicans and Democrats, but we are all Americans. This message rings soundly with a demographic that’s been deliberately mislead so many times, and has politically backed terrorist killers. It’s been said that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, and the left buys that completely, but the person who said it….was a terrorist-not a freedom fighter.
This is the test of Barack Obama’s lifetime. It’s not whether or not he can be President. He’s tied in the polls, so the possibility is is clearly there. However, the question of him actually being able to lead people (to be a leader) remains to be seen. He’s never had to lead. Now he does, and those who are his strongest supporters….are not following his instructions on even a simple, logical, common sense, clearly honorable request: leave Britol alone.
If they can’t do that, then how can he lead them to war in Iraq for another 16+months min, or Iran, or Pakistan, or Afghanistan, or elsewhere?
Bristol, if you need to see a silver lining in all this, know 2 things:
1) there are literally tens of millions-perhaps hundreds of millions of people who are proud of you and support you and wish you the very best (this includes Senator Barack Obama).
2) the reaction that so many hate-filled, closed-minded, faux-liberals are showing has shown that Senator Obama can give a good speech, and people will clap to it, maybe even stand, but that’s all they’ll do. They won’t follow the man’s instructions let alone follow him to war or other serious challenges.
Good luck to you Bristol! God Bless, and remember there are more good people out there praying for you than there are frightened people lashing out at you.
