Bristol Palin has officially weighed in on the gay-marriage debate—zeroing in on the fact that the change in President Obama’s position on the issue was influenced by not being able to explain to his children why their friends’ gay parents should be treated differently than their friends’ straight parents. The 21-year-old single mother insisted that Obama should have simply explained to his girls that kids who grow up with both a mom and dad do better. “In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee,” she wrote on her blog.
