    Obama should listen to this seasoned authority on political matters.

    Being runner up on Dancing with the Stars made her think that she is so much more wise than the fifty year old man.

    A conservative doesn't like something Obama did. In other news, the sun rose in the east this morning. All this and more at 11.

    Bristol wants to chastise the President for discussing and observing his daughter’s views on some sexual matters.

    I assume Bristol would want the President to consult a mature adult parent like her mother Sarah. Too bad Bristol did not pay any attention to her mother’s views on sex outside of marriage and having a child out of wedlock.

    I don’t think that 22 year old Bristol should be advising the president on an issue that has been controversial for more years than Bristol has been alive.

    Based on our choices currently, I'd support Dora for President (whoever Dora is)

    Bristol's blog post was actually well reasoned and written. It can be read in it's entirety for context here. She makes a goo point

    Bristol's remarks are so sad she clearly does not have a clue what she is talking about.

    Sarah got married on August 29, 1988. Her first-born, Track, was born on April 20, 1989. I smell a shotgun wedding. So much for no sex before marriage.

    Hmmm... less than 8 months, unless my math is off.

    Could be that Bristol is jealous, thinking about all those kids out there who will have two fathers, while hers still has none.

    Anyway, I really could care less what Bristol Palin thinks about it.

    Though I do find it interesting that Obama's kids have such an effect on his life and decisions, especially in such ones as this. And it sounds like a good thing, to be honest, that his kids are of such importance to him in this day and age that their comments and expereinces factor so heavily into his thought process.

    While I would admit that Bristol Palin is not on my list of people that I would seek moral guidance from, she does point something out that drives me crazy about politicians (mostly democratic politicians). Why must every major policy decision come with some personal story? The state of the union addresses are simply filled with a parade of people who are individually afffected by some policy or other. Is it really necessary? Must the nation be made aware that Ruth Thompson of Muncie Indiana received a new hip with help from the National Health Care Act? Must I know that Abe Tillman of Cedar Key Florida was able to buy his grandson a new baseball mitt with the tax rebate check he received?

    I find the strategy of personalizing everything to be nothing more than shameless pandering.

    As i recall, Jimmy Carter consulted his daughter regarding nuclear disarmament, now Barack is consulting his daughters on social issues.

    Can it be any coincidence that the two worst presidents in recent American history are those who based their policies on their daughters opinions?

    Looking at their counterparts in recent history, one would plainly see why they would neglect their daughters.

    Interesting how those who preach "family values" are so quick to ignore their own.

    No wonder the country is such a mess, with so many parents trying to be pals and equals with their children. Children need parents to guide and teach them because they haven't learned to make reasonable decisions for themselves. I find it disturbing when parent's put that much pressure on young children. They're not ready to make those decisions. Obama shows dangerously poor judgment by allowing his children's purely emotional reactions to so dramatically color his public policy decisions. Parents, it's time to grow up and be adults.

    WARNING

    Exploding Irony Meter Zone!

    The left simultaneously applauds Obama for taking the advice of a child while criticizing Bristol's opinions because of her youth.
