If you think it's great that her 17 year old daughter got knocked up, you obviously haven't tried to change diapers and prepare a bottle at 4 a.m. at the age of 17 while your friends are traveling to Europe or studying for a Physics exam before Spring Break.
While the "story" may seem glorious that she has chosen to not have an abortion, what do you make of the other story of the robbed young adulthood of this young woman simply because her parents didn't educate her properly about sex/pregnancy/STDs?
And THIS is the person you want 1 heart beat away from the Presidency!?!
All I can say is, I'm glad you aren't going to be raising my daughters or in charge of my future.

Dude, that is one heck of a tacky selfish post.
So what you are saying is "my friends are having fun but I can't because I have a ball and chain to take care of".
Is life that cheap to you?
People like you and Obama may think babies are a mistake but the truth is it all depends on how you look at things. It's obvious you will think of babies as some sort of punishment because sure that is the lazy way out, which is why you would probably decide to abort the kid, but you don't seem to understand that it all has to do with redemption and self accountability. It's about going the extra mile and deciding to take care of the kid no matter how hard it gets.
Nobody said life was easy and neither is being the President.
If Obama would rather take the easy way out then he doesn't deserve to be President.
Life isn't easy and neither is being POTUS. Another perfect analogy.
Palin is lucky because her mommy has money and she doesn't have to worry about dropping out of high school to go work at Mickey D's.

Look at what he said, not just the part you quoted:
...look, I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby....
He's talking about underaged mothers. Not that his own kids are a punishment.

you could say it was a poor choice of words. But in essence the christian fundamentalists would force women to carry out a full term pregnancy whether they wanted to or not
still nobody wants to answer my question
