McCain knew this before his decision to select Palin. And even James Dobson approves…well, at least of the way the family is handling the matter.
On the other hand, Obama must think the Palins are awful parents–punishing their daughter with a baby.
From our point of view, this is another “non-event” in this campaign…except for hardcore liberals.
Here’s an excerpt from FoxNews.com (read the rest at link)…
McCain’s campaign told FOX News that the presumptive Republican presidential candidate knew about Bristol Palin’s pregnancy before he chose Palin as his running mate last Friday, and that Bristol is planning to marry the father of her child. The baby is due in late December.
“We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us,” the Palins said in the statement. “Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.”
