Bristol to Prez: Have a Sister Souljah Moment

Bristol Palin, starts her new blog with a bang. She’s challenging the president to take on his own Sister Souljah Moment, but this time against the misogynist left:

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?

Peggy Noonan has made a similar suggestion. I think they’re on to something. A president who feels too constrained by his base must also feel like he has fewer options than he should. Who knows? By talking straight to his base, Obama might find it freeing.

    Perhaps he’s not really constrained by his base. Actually I think his base would let him get away with anything. I think this is the real man, this is what he really believes, this is the ground that he will fight on. He is a leftist to the core and will go down fighting. He shoved healthcare down our throats because he believes in it, despite what the public wants. He will change this nation or else his presidency is not worth it. He’s said as much. He’s a committed leftist and needs to be voted out.

    Manny, I have to agree with you.

    This is what he really believes. He’s a committed leftist, and he must be voted out.

    A president who feels too constrained by his base

    Obama is the base. He is part of the base. To criticize them is to critcize himself. To criticize them is to think that they are wrong, and he does not think they are wrong. He shares their snide, purile, contempt, all the while believing himself and themselves to be oh-so-sophisticated and smart and pure.

    If Obama actually does take Bristol’s advice, he’d improve his chances of getting a 2nd term. I hope he remains stubborn.

    As recommended by Andrew Breitbart, make them live up to their own standards. Generally an impossible task.

    Bristol Palin has grown more than Obama in the past three years.

    Like her mother, she is already a better person than he ever was. Like her mother, she has more guts than most of the R men do, and more than any D anywhere ever even thought of having.

    I used to joke that I would vote for Bristol Palin over Obama any day of any week ever. Now it’s not a joke anymore. She is a grown up young woman with child, and not a girl anymore.

    Nice work Bristol. You won’t get an answer, but we need to keep this up over and over again.

  • SKay

    Obama’s statements always seem to have an expiration date–usually the next week.

  • Mark

    Obama. I long to see the day when he is an ex president and hope he becomes as silent out of office following the W. Bush classy silence even when he go mugged by this fool.

  • Shane

    I was not really impressed with the Palins until reading this. My respect for Ms. Palin (Bristol) has jumped quite a bit with this message. I wonder if Obama will even bother to read it.
