Hope From The Dope

I find it highly amusing that the MSM is falling all over itself in praise of Barack Hussein Obama's comments regarding fatherhood on Father's Day.

In one part of his speech, he states

"...But if we are honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that what too many fathers also are is missing – missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.

You and I know how true this is in the African-American community. We know that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households, a number that has doubled – doubled – since we were children. We know the statistics – that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and twenty times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home, or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it..."

Thank you, Mr. Messiah, for enlightening us peasants! Never mind the fact that conservatives have been writing and speaking about this for decades. only to be castigated by the liberal elites as being racist, and not caring about the poor and the down trodden.

Barack Hussein Obama went on to state
"...But we also need families to raise our children. We need fathers to realize that responsibility does not end at conception. We need them to realize that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child – it’s the courage to raise one...And by the way – it’s a responsibility that also extends to Washington. Because if fathers are doing their part; if they’re taking our responsibilities seriously to be there for their children, and set high expectations for them, and instill in them a sense of excellence and empathy, then our government should meet them halfway.

We should be making it easier for fathers who make responsible choices and harder for those who avoid them. We should get rid of the financial penalties we impose on married couples right now, and start making sure that every dime of child support goes directly to helping children instead of some bureaucrat. We should reward fathers who pay that child support with job training and job opportunities and a larger Earned Income Tax Credit that can help them pay the bills. We should expand programs where registered nurses visit expectant and new mothers and help them learn how to care for themselves before the baby is born and what to do after – programs that have helped increase father involvement, women’s employment, and children’s readiness for school. We should help these new families care for their children by expanding maternity and paternity leave, and we should guarantee every worker more paid sick leave so they can stay home to take care of their child without losing their income.

* Emphasis Mine.

Mr. Messiah...Washington needs to stay out of people's lives! Did it occur to you that the vast majority of men who pay child support already have a job? Of course not...we need more government programs for that! Did it ever occur to you that many hospitals have programs to instruct new mothers about prenatal health and child rearing? Of course not...we need more government programs for that!

The only part of his speech that I agree with is regarding financial penalties for married couples. But then again, conservatives have spoken and written about this for years, to no avail.

But when the Messiah speaks about it, it's portrayed as something new and original.

It isn't.

Unfortunately, you are correct, my friend.
