Obama on Palin’s pregnant daughter

“I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people’s families are off limits, and people’s children are especially off limits. And so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know, my mother had me when she was 18. And how family deals with issues and teenage children that shouldn’t be the topic of our politics”

Maybe Bristol Palin’s life is a disaster now. Mine was when I was 17. And I got through it. Can’t imagine what it would have been like trying to do that had partisan zealots slimed me because they had a political grudge against my mother.

The mother is fair political game, the daughter isn’t.
