John McCain's vice-presidential running mate Sarah Palin said today that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is five months pregnant, an announcement aimed at rebutting Internet rumors that Palin's youngest son, born in April, was actually her daughter's.
This entire election is turning into a nightmare. Barack HUSSEIN Obama can do drugs as a youth, lie about his experience, hang out and cavort with known criminals and radicals and he gets a pass from the media and many others out there.
The teen aged daughter of the conservative VP candidate gets pregnant and the accusations fly, the lynch mobs gather, and the liberal, anti-American wackos clear their schedules for a prolonged assault on the mother and the mother-to-be.
The children of the candidates should be off-limits. Bill Clinton made that clear during his White House run and amazingly, the press completed.
Why does the same standard not apply for Republicans?
Palin's daughter's indiscretion should not matter, but it WILL and it DOES. Many will jump on the bandwagon to condemn her for her daughter's action. The Dems will use this to the fullest extent, even if Barack HUSSEIN Obama states she should be off limits.
You KNOW he and his advisers are looking for ways to exploit this.
All of this just reinforces a thought that has been taking roots in my mind for some time. Some will be critical when I make this statement, however the more I teach and the more I live, the more it makes sense to me.
The majority of the youth of today have very little direction, very little commitment to family values and are mainly involved in their own lives. They could care less how their actions will effect others and are only living for the moment. They are very unaware of the real world and could not care less how their actions have results on others for many years to come.
I cannot believe that the daughter of a sitting Governor, who is on the political rise, did not think that her actions would and could hurt her mother (and family). I do not know how she was raised, I do not know whom she hung out with. I do not know what did when when she alone? (Correction: I do know what she was doing on at least one occasion).
The bottom line is that the teenagers indiscretion WILL effect her life and the life of the baby's father. It will also affect the lives of her family members. Most of all, it will affect the live of a young baby and least of all it will affect the outcome of a Presidential election.
I know that sounds very dismal, but it is what I think. Her pregnancy should not matter, but it does and it will.
I still think McCain and Palin will defeat Barach HUSSEIN Obama and his liberal VP running mate.
I may be wrong. After all, I was preparing for Hurricane Gustav hitting the Texas gulf coast and I was wrong. I guess anything can happen.
"(the pregnancy) has no relevance to Governor Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. My mother had me when she was 18. How a family deals with issues and teen-age children — that shouldn’t be the topic of our politics." - Barack HUSSEIN Obama
