Bristol Palin slams President Obama for decision to support gay marriage

HollywoodNews.com: President Barack Obama recently spoke out in support of same-sex marriage, but Bristol Palin is apparently not approving of the way he made the decision.
Bristol took to her blog to comment on Obama claiming he is supportive of same-sex marriage after discussing the matter with his family, states UsMagazine.com. “People automatically assume that a Christian female President isn’t capable of making decisions without her spouse’s stamp of approval. So let me get this straight – it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?” Bristol commented.
Obama commented that in speaking with his daughters he listened to how they didn’t understand how their friend’s parents who were a same-sex couple were any different.
However, Bristol doesn’t think that should have an impact on his opinion: “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.”

HollywoodNews.com: President Barack Obama had a sing-a-long with Sir Paul McCartney at the White House after presenting the former Beatle with America’s highest musical award.
The stellar concert to present Paul with the ‘Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song’ was held in Washington last month and was screened for the first time on TV on Wednesday night (July 28).
President Obama, whose wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha were in the audience, said: “It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly half a century since four lads from Liverpool landed on our shores and changed everything overnight.”
Sir Paul said: “There could not be a greater place for my band and I to play. It is an incredible honor. Not only to receive this award but to perform in front of this President.”
He opened the event with his song, ‘Got to Get You Into My Life.’ After that a host of stars performed his other tunes, including Stevie Wonder, The Jonas Brothers, Corrine Bailey Rae, Elvis Costello and Dave Grohl.
