I'm not a big Obama fan, but I've always believed that he's a wonderful father. He serves as an excellent role model to fathers everywhere, especially to young dads.
"Obama on not having his father around: "Even though my sister and I were lucky enough to have a wonderful mother and caring grandparents to raise us, I felt his absence,” Obama said. “And I wonder what my life would have been like had he been a greater presence." "
I wonder if he would have been too much like his father...I think his mom and her side were level headed and not as extreme as his dad's views...
In his Book Dreams of my Father he has a quote from His Mother. He asked her what it would have been for him if His father was around?
She said: You are a lot like him, and The two of you would have argued all the time, because of your pride!
The Book seemed to hint his father had an arrogant aire and Obama inherited his obstanance.
Confidence, is what I would personaly call it.
Very non partisan of you Habee.
I like the man I see.
Thanks, Ernesto. I can disagree with someone and still like him/her. I really don't see how anyone could doubt Obama's devotion to his girls, and I think that's an important trait. There are just too many crappy parents in the world!
An obvious love of children is a good human trait in my view too.
Which is something I really like about you! I will NEVER understand grandparents who have nothing to do with their grandchildren, even when they live in the same town.
I would make a wild guess and say $1,345,675. In other words, they took your entire 2010 federal tax payment and made this video. I want to be the first to thank you for this excellent contribution. I'll bet it's actually the best thing you've ever done. Thanks again!
Why would you think the video was costly to make? Don't you think it provides a great message to fathers and future fathers? As a teacher, I saw hundreds of kids with no father in their lives. If the message helps just a few kids, it's worth the cost.
Thanks, Dutch. BTW, is that your dog? I used to have a Goldie that looked almost just like that! His name was Rascal.
I agree with you habee;
"If the message helps just a few kids, it's worth the cost."
Much respect for your honest and level headed feelings towards a political figure you may not agree with on many points. You are always amazing my dear.
How dare the Obamas continue doing things like this, The first lady tries to find a way to give children healthy food to eat and now The president acts like a responsible parent. No wonder this country is in as bad as shape as it is. Is there is no end to their diabolical schemes to ruin this country. BTW I'm not being sarcastic, I'm being disresectful. I'm pointing this out in case you dont have a dictionary handy

 Following the earthquake in Haiti, the United States rushed in to help - with money, medicine, and manpower. To date, we've already given over $179 million in humanitarian aid... but Barack Obama ordered all U.S. installations to take down their American flags, lest we be seen as an...

Why do people hate the fact that Barack Obama is President again?I'm not saying everyone does, but people do.

To me, Obama seemed tired and distracted and Mitt seemed energized. (Of course, not knowing what the "job" entails and how hard change comes could account for some of that.) My husband, who is a Republican, is convinced that Obama planned the whole thing (for some yet unknown...
