Do Feminists Think Obama Needs a “Heart Transplant”?

Last night on FoxNews’s O’Reilly Factor with Laura Ingraham substituting for the show’s eponymous host, feminist Gloria Feldt said Miss California, Carrie Prejean, needed a “heart transplant[1].” So, since that young woman has offered a position on gay marriage nearly identical to that of the President of the United States, does this feminist believe that Barack Obama needs a “heart transplant” as well?

Here’s what Miss Prejean said about gay marriage:

Well I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

Note her answer was prompted by a question. In his book, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream[2], Barack Obama volunteered (without prompting) that he is “opposed to same-sex marriage:”

I believe that American society can choose to carve out a special place for the union of a man and a woman as the unit of child rearing most common to every culture.

Now, contrast the two statements. Prejean didn’t say she was opposed to gay marriage, she merely said she favored traditional marriage. It was the Democrat who indicated his opposition. Interesting that.

The hypocrisy of the Left on this manner is telling. Now, I know Miss Prejean has become the spokesmodel or some such for some pro-traditional marriage outfit (of which I had never previously heard). I wouldn’t have known about this had gay marriage advocates pointed it out.

Once again, they’re giving her a bigger platform. Let me repeat something I’ve said before: ignore her[3]. It’s her critics who have made her name more familiar than that of the woman who won the pageant.

And if you’re going to criticize her, at least hold others who have made public statements advocating traditional marriage to the same standard.
