Obama wouldn't want his daughter "punished" with a baby
I wrote about this in March, when many people were too busy living their real lives to notice:
Words reveal the heart - truly they do.
Who could have predicted the contrast when Republicans would have a woman - almost a megamom - running for Vice President who calls babies blessings - whether her own child with Down syndrome or a baby conceived by a young daughter, now being used by the leftist media (and rightwing legalists) to humiliate and discredit her.
Often in the course of human events, God has provided signposts to help us discern what is truly at stake.
I believe neither of these events is an accident. The distinction is clear.
Yes, I would love to elect a black man to the presidency. But it would have to be a black man who put Life before Left. Unfortunately, leftists savage any black leaders who do that, just as they are now savaging a woman who represents all they have been telling us that women could be.
Barbara--I read your posts all the time and I especially want to thank you for the way you have written about Sarah Palin and her family. I completely agree with you and I want you to know I appreciate you using your keyboard to speak out. You are doing the Lord's work! God bless you!

Wow, this floored me!!! I get angry when people consistently say they can't "wrap their head around how McCain can choose Palin as VP".....What Obama just said here is horrible. Of course, if any Republican had said this, it would have been plastered all over the news.....I'm sorry for the rant. I'm getting tired of all the negative press. But, this is life, correct?

I agree with the previous commenter...thank-you for writing about Sarah Palin and her family in such an honest and Christian way! I could not be more pleased with McCain's pick for V.P.!
And thank-you for connecting Obama's comments about a hypothetical situation involving his daughters and the real-life situation Palin and her daughter currently face. Obama has clearly shown that he does not feel the need to take responsibility for his actions if those actions create a less then pleasant situation. We made a mistake in Iraq, well just walk away leaving the people of Iraq ill-equipped to clean up after us. Your teenage daughter gets pregnant, just take her to Planned Parenthood. As a Catholic Christian I can not abide this man's idea of social responsibility.

At the age of 18, I become an unwed, pregnant teenager. Thank goodness for my Pro-life values because that "mistake" as some people may call it, is now a beautiful, intelligent, kind and diverse 14 year old daughter who has been one of life's greatest blessings. The road hasn't always been easiest, yes, I had to grow up faster than I had planned, but you know what? That isn't always a bad thing. Thank God for the miracle of life. I certainly don't consider it a "punishment!"
