Reading Obama’s for the children missive takes me back to that long-haired fellow in one presidential debate babbling about the nation electing a father figure. Bleech! Well, behold, it’s uncle Obama-in-Chief kids, climb on up! One on one in a classroom, sure. But in a mass address? I don’t get it and I don’t like it.

Aside from the general creep out factor of a POTUS who feels he needs to address the children in such a prominent way, I will take exception to this below in bold. And some of the folksy, personal crap grates, as well. All things considered, I find the whole concept a bad idea.

Leave the children to their families and the serious politcs a WH should be engaged in to the adults. What is he, Social worker in chief? Give it a freaking rest. He should have better things to do with his time than try and make the children like him. Especially considering as he isn’t doing so hot with the adults these days.
