    Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown reports: At a press avail in Monroe, Mich., Barack Obama on Palin: "Back off these kinds of stories."

    "I have said before and I will repeat again: People's families are off limits," Obama said. "And people's children are especially off-limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. 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 a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn’t be a topic of our politics."

    On charges that his campaign has stoked the story via liberal blogs:
    "I am offended by that statement. There is no evidence at all that any of this involved us," he said. "Our people were not involved in any way in this, and they will not be. And if I thought there was somebody in my campaign who was involved in something like that, they would be fired."


    ------------------


    I don't support Obama as president, but I do commend him for his comments on this.

    I just finished posting this in the other thread. Seems really silly that people are so quick to link the Obama campaign to crap like this.

    Just because some loon on a blogging site goes too far doesn't mean it's a reflection of Obama or the vast majority of his supporters.

    Obama: Steer clear of Palin's daughter
    Mark Hornbeck / Detroit News Lansing Bureau

    MONROE -- Barack Obama, questioned about the pregnancy of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's unwed teenage daughter, said outsiders should steer clear of that subject.

    "People's families are off limits," he said firmly. "People's children are especially off limits. They have no relevancy.

    "I strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother hand me when she was 18."

    Sarah Palin said today confirmed her daughter is expecting a child, and said Bristol Palin and the baby's father would wed.

    Obama was asked by a reporter about Palin's daughter during a campaign stop in Monroe, following the Detroit Labor Day parade.

    Asked if anyone in his campaign had a role in disclosing the pregnancy of 17-year-old Bristol, Obama said: "I'm offended by that statement. There's no indication that any of this involved us."

    Obama indicated he'd dismiss anyone from his staff that was involved in disseminating that kind of information.

    Stuff like this is why I do like and respect Mr. Obama. If he lived in Arizona he might have my vote.

    All joking aside, good for him.

    You might vote for him... Are you kidding? As someone else pointed out, until Obama stops accepting money from the Daily Kos and George Soros, the words he says in opposition to them are EMPTY.

    You know, I did hear rumors that Obama thought Antoine Cason was the best CB in the draft. Just keep that in mind come Nov. ;)

    I'm sure he'll get to that as soon as the McCain campaign starts not accepting donations from Freepers or RedState visitors.

    How freaking ridiculous. They're freaking blog sites which have thousands of contributors of which the vast majority are quite sane. It'd be like me asking the McCain campaign to not accept any donations from anyone that visits this site because rumors of Obama being a muslim keep being posted.

    If you have no respect for a womans child inside her womb and refuse to address the issue as a candidate for President, because you think it's above your pay grade, why should conservatives believe you have any respect for a womans child outside the womb aside from the laws that force to to respect.

    Obama, more than half the Nation does not trust you and there is nothing you can to do change that now. Hopefully more American's will come to their senses between now and November and Elect McCain/Palin as our next leaders.

    You continue to prove what kinda person you really are.

    Obama deserves better than followers like you.

    That quote originated when he was asked when he thought life began in the conception/birth process. He was implying that he wasn't God and he doesn't know exactly. That it was "above his pay grade". It's not the President's job to decide this matter. It's between you and God.

    That was not the context the question was being asked in. Roe V Wade is the proper context.

    what's so funny is he doesn't get the irony of on one hand going "he's the chosen one by the people!" and then when obama says "stop being stupid" he ignores it.
