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.


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.

    The hypocrisy of the left is laughable. Obama is the leader of the Hypocratic Party, and he wants so badly to be the Dictator of the United States. Any of you weak minded people on here defending him, are as bad as him, and the low life comedian who spews the typical left hatred. At least the comedian is being honest about his hatred, while Otraitor hides his.
    Double standards are the norm from the left. No one should be surprised.

    Just Maybe, President Obama doesn’t see either Ms Palin as a good role model for his daughters. I certainly don’t wish for my grand daughter to grow lemon trees, then expect public adoration for making lemonade.

      But apparently he thought it was a good idea to have a racist, anti-semitic pastor marry him and Michelle and baptise his daughters. And then as his daughters grew to continue to let that racist anti-semitic pastor be a role model for them.

    Well put Bristol you did an amazing job without attacking and it shows how much class you have praying for you and your family

  • Wild Bill

    Oh, how cute! She thinks she’s relevant.

    • Fesofee

      You took the time to respond didn’t you?

      • gremlin

        Because it’s fun. ;-)

    Bristol, you are doing great! It’s a joy to watch you mature and grow into the
    dynamic woman you are destined to be.
    God Bless you, Sweetie…

    Wow, really? Maher is a comedian who made comments about a celebrity who has profited off of her illegitimate child. Limbaugh is a political commentator who made comments about a private citizen speaking up for what she believes is right. There is a huge difference. And President Obama does not control who contributes to the PAC. Additionally, Bristol’s mother, Sarah defended Rush and supported his first amendment right to speak out.

    • Thinkdifferently

      The president said he was going to lead by example on this matter, that there is not room for this type of discourse in our political banter. Well?

      If he was a principled man he would call Bristol and return the money to Maher. It’s true, he doesn’t have control over who contributes to the Super PAC but he has control over what monies are returned. I’m sure he is afraid to stand up to Maher since Maher is a needed foot soldier.

      The problem with a liberal argument is it’s not rooted in principles it just a counter to a principled statement. That is why Maher’s and Limbaugh’s professions were added to the argument.

      I wonder if a liberal would be offended if a political comedian aimed a socially unacceptable derogatory word at the black conservative speak out what he believes (example Alan Keyes, I’ve heard what they call him). Probably not. Need principles for an liberal to find outrage in that example.

      The other difference of course is that EVERYONE fully expects a liberal to behave in a vile manner. It isn’t news, it isn’t shocking, it isn’t anywhere near missing the bar of public expectations. He and you are liberals, therefore no one expects the slightest hint of decent human behavior from you. One thing that Americans of all kinds agree on, is that are just too many liberals in this country: we’d like you to change your minds and hearts, but you insist on exterminating yourselves through every social program you can come up with (ESCR, so many contraceptives that you can’t even afford them so you have to violate Catholics’ First Amendment rights, abortion, gay marriage, euthanasia). Even the President, during the 2008 election season, pointed out that if his daughters became pregnant, he wouldn’t want to punish them (and us!) with another Obama.

      Rush, on the other hand, is a conservative. Therefore, we have expectations of him that he failed to meet, so he apologized.

      Bristol, one quibble: you’ll do best if you remember the difference between “mistakes” and “sins”. It will help you raise your son if you’re honest with yourself and others about which is which. I thank God for your beautiful son; my own father was an “unplanned pregnancy” too.

      Sarah defended free speech. Good on her! She has never called for any of the people who have insulted/slimed/slurred/belittled/humiliated her or her kids to be stripped of their 1st amendment rights.

      Sarah did point out the hypocrisy of all the political talking heads and politicians who were outraged by Rush’s comments but who don’t care about Letterman, Maher, Shultz, Olberman….. calling women twats, bimbos, sluts, whores, cunts, mashed up bags of meat, not to mention the top ten conservative women you would want to “hate fuck” (rape?)….classy group you liberals.

      Rush got bit in the pocket book. I’m glad! He deserves the wrath of the media, his advertisers and his listeners.

      I wish liberal idiots who spewed their contempt for women were treated the same.

  • Donna Seele

    Bristol,ever hear the saying “You cant make a silk purse with a sows ear”? barry the fake prez is a lying scumbag and does not care who or what gets in his way. Tell em to go to hell.

    • http://yahoo elliot

      • Wildfire

        Maybe a little clarity is in order:
        No UNQUALIFIED Black (or White or Yellow, or Red) man should be President.

  • speppers69

    Well said, Bristol…very well said.
