Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?

Dear President Obama,

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next.  You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha.  After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said.  “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture.  I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you.  After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager.  That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.

Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you.  Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women.  You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.

But…

What if you did something radical and wildly unpopular with your base and took a stand against the denigration of all women… even if they’re just single moms? Even if they’re Republicans?

I’m not expecting your SuperPAC to return the money.  You’re going to need every dime to hang on to your presidency.  I’m not even really expecting a call.  But would it be too much to expect a little consistency?  After all, you’re President of all Americans, not just the liberals.

    I have one question. Did Bristol call Fluke and tell her how upsetting it was to hear that kind of filth from Rush’s mouth? No. How many times has she attacked the President throughout the years for absolutely no reason at all other then to make herself relevant? Plenty of times that I saw. And yet she thinks that she deserves a phone call from him? Maybe if she wasn’t so accusatory over everything I would think differently but really she only makes an attempt at being right when it involves her in some way or to protect her own party. Example: I didn’t see her make any comment when that Republican senator/congressman proposed that all single mothers were guilty of child abuse. Why not? She is a single mom… Oh but the senator/congressman was Republican. And that isn’t even the only attack out there but has Bristol said anything about those either? Nope. Why? Because the men who proposed those bills were all Republican too. So you can say Obama is the President of ” liberal supporters” only but I take offense to that…because the real truth is that Republicans are only out for themselves as well. You aren’t innocent. So before you accuse someone again maybe you should look at what you have done as well.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers

  • Anyone

    Damn, she will just about say anything to get Obama out of the presidency. As proved on here! She needs to stop, because now she’s just pulling shit out of her ass, and damn, it’s STINKY! lol

    Oh, and if she really cared about all of this, she would at least comforted Sandra Fluke and give her a call. Didn’t happen.

    As I said, she would say anything! And I must admit, it’s a tad entertaining.. :3

    Sandra Fluke is a self-described Activist and a full fledged lawyer who has spent her life creating false narratives … NOT a private Citizen because she is deliberately putting herself out as a spokewoman for legislation …
    Bristol has been a private citizen thrust into the spotlight who decided to use it … and this is a private citizen’s blog stating opinions … NOT a news organization or a lobbying group …
    such as the one being run by Anita Dunn to promote Sandra Fluke and demand taxpayers pay for the social life of other people

  • susan

    Well, you’ve made my point, dummy. One of the reasons Sarah Palin was so resented by the left and Obama was that she ‘elected’ to have a baby that she knew full well had downs syndrome. Most are aborted. Even the most ardent supports of abortion, Kerry,Boxer,Clinton,and Kennedy, drew the line at killing innocent babies who had survived the abortion process except then Senator Obama. Hence, President’s Bush “Born Alive Act”. If people only realized that the concept of abortion played to Sanger’s Agenda of, shall we say, eliminating what she deemed as inferior people, we could then, at the least, begin to comprehend that we have killed many future Martin Luther Kings, and others, noble and deserving of life.

    If this President can KILL innocent babies, who have survived the abortion process, then let him do it himself.

    You can wait a long time for moderation of my comment as my response comment is much too moderate as it is!

    Sure was worth the wait, though. :-)

    Bravo! :D

    If you had any knowledge of Sanger you would know that she was trying to improve life for the women of what you refer to as “inferior people” by saving them from annual childbirth. As one of 11 children, she understood the problems quite well.

    Dear Dummy:

    How about this…. Mother is running for political office “on Christian family values,” her unwed teenage daughter announces that she is pregnant. Mother is concerned as to how it will affect mom’s political aspirations; mom and daughter find out that the baby daughter is carrying has downs syndrome. So mom fakes pregnancy and adopts daughter’s baby… mom is now able to say (“legally” ) that she is the baby’s mother. Everything is going great, until that same daughter announces to mom later that year, still unwed, still a teenager, and pregnant again. Too late… or too early for mom to fake another pregnancy. She decides to use the daughter’s 1st baby’s downs syndrome in an attempt to capture the hearts and votes of the American people. The GOP tried to make her out as a “great mom,” but what kind of mother who is in labor “much earlier than expected” knowing that hers is a high risk pregnancy, would refuse to be examined (at a couple of the nation’s BEST neonatal hospitals in Dallas and Anchorage) then travel from Dallas Tx, to Seattle WA with a 4 hr. flight lay over; then travel on to Anchorage AK; then travel almost in a car (not ambulance) to another location to get to a hospital where her friends had already arranged to pretend that her daughter’s “already born baby” was delivered there. She said she just wanted the baby to be born in Alaska. If she really had been pregnant, it is my opinion that she should have been charged with child endangerment or neglect.

    If you think you have any right over my womb.. come on and climb in and take that little bloodclot for your own self to carry. When that bloodclot is more important than MY daughter’s right to HER dreams and ambitions and desires.. hell will definitely be frozen over! And by the way.. all those Maxipads thrown out by the MILLIONS every single day all over the world for those ‘heavy months’? LOTS and LOTS of those ‘bloodclots’ that women see were actually itty bitty babies (no brain, no nervous system, no awareness.. but according to YOU people… still ‘babies’) that did NOT implant! GOD ABORTS MORE SUCH ‘BABIES’ EVERY DAY THAN A BILLION DOCTORS working 24/7 could ever accomplish. Read some medical texts.. get some facts.. and then make a new business to get rich… Let ‘your’ people know they are possibly throwing away their babies in the trash! Offer burial services for all those Maxipads..

  • LindaZ1

    God Bless You Susan! Some of the women on here are frightening. I cannot understand why the liberal agenda is based upon tearing others down – they go after conservative women like rabid dogs. Scary.

  • Daniel

    Even the Dalai Lama supports abortion when the child is known to have down syndrome or other condition for which life would cause greater pain than abortion.
    And only a Sarah Palin fanatic would suggest that MLK is equivalent to someone with down syndrome.

  • Ricky Baker

    Well said

  • Norman Nelson

    How many of you do not know what you are talking about? Sad.

  • Lee

    Strange, unless I my memory is unclear, there were several pictures of Sarah Palin, while pregnant, WITH Bristol next to her before Trig was born, WHICH would prove your twisted idiotic assumptions drawn from liberal LIES play out as crap.
    Your stupidity and ignorant post shows JUST HOW STUPID YOU ARE.

  • sady may

    your joking right?!!! And you say dear dummy? YOUR A COMPLETE IDIOT!!

  • Rachel

    Ms Sanger’s motive was a little more sinister than you indicate. She wanted to wipe out the black race and since there has been 0 growth in the black population since the 1970′s I’d say her plan is working.

  • falling

    Nice spin, but completely untrue. The truth is that Sanger was an elitist snob, who believed that only the wealthy and well born should be allowed to breed. It is easy to find her quotes against blacks and other minorities and her belief that their should be manditory sterilization of those deemed “unfit” to breed.
    Sanger also believed abortion was a vicious, evil thing and clearly stated that it was indeed taking a human life, but that ridding the world of undesirables was of such importance that abortion had to be tolerated and even mandated for some.

  • Cozette

    By aborting thE babies? Wow, that is really “saving women”

  • Rachel Gwynn

    What a freak you are.

  • Livs

    thank you im so glad that there are other people as out raged by her ignorance as I.

  • Patti

    I feel sorry for you. How sick is that statement. You are the one who is uninformed. Those ARE babies, get your facts straight!!

  • Karen M

    La La- how dare you go on this blog and attack this brave young woman- you coward? You are only helping to drive home many of the points that Bristol and others are trying to bring out in their writing- things have gone haywire. People are more divided than they ever have been because the media is feeding us biased crap to initiate more hate- more tension because of culture, color, sexual preference, financial status or in the case of this classless loser of an “entertainer” Maher, their gender. We are moving backward instead of forward with our current president ( who, by the way is FAR from the best we have seen..define BEST but first do some real research.) Did you even watch this clip about Maher and do you as a woman feel that his disgusting behavior is acceptable??.Hillary Clinton got a shot too so it is women in general that this guy hates…Maher and his ilk are at the root of this evil his million is dirty money…sort of like they are trying to say that the Chick Fil A owner donates to anti gay groups…this guy publicly says what he does and the hands Obama a million…hmmmmm. Shape up!!

    OH and Shady Lady- if that is what you really are…you need to take some biology classes. The maxi pads may have unfertilized eggs on them thus they have not started forming a human being yet…not remotely the same as aborting a fetus.

  • Brooke

    Daniel: Children with Down Syndrome can live lives that are just as fulfilling as anyone else’s life. I don’t think the child’s right to live should be taken away just because life might be hard. Life might be hard for a lot of people who are completely normal; but that isn’t justifiable by a disease. I’m by no means a Palin fanatic, but come on now. Down Syndrome children are just as happy as others.

  • Perphides

    … and what kind of person do you suppose determines that people of one group are more inherently valuable than people of another group? Or that one genetically identified group of people should live and another genetically identified group die? People who think (is that really an accurate term?) like you do scare me, Daniel.
