Bristol Palin Schools President Obama on Gay Marriage/Being a Dad

Everyone has an opinion about President Obama's recent evolution in support of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples. Why should Bristol Palin be any different?:
While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.
Which is rich coming from a single teen mom who, just a couple generations ago, would've been either ostracized from her family for being an unmarried mom and/or her child would've been forcibly been placed for adoption. But she's welcome to her opinion.

Well you gotta cut the Palins some slack you know. They are still broken up about their hard luck in recent years, you know all those hard times they've gotten since the election.
