Okay, given he gave a big bash for fathers last year (with the rollout for the Fatherhood Initiative Bill) and nothing for mothers, I was hoping he’d show a little more respect for us this year. But no. Another rollout of Father Worshipis on it’s way. Apparently he could have cared less that there wereHUNDREDS of mothers who had lost their children to abusers in front of the White House on Mother’s Day, damaged with help from the very Fatherhood Initiative programs that help fathers get custody away from mothers with our tax dollars. I posted a comment on the Washington Post to this story below…they haven’t printed it yet. We are just going to have to yell a little bit louder, and start voting these jerks out of office.
From the Washington Post (I’m only posting the first couple paragraphs, I got nauseated looking at it):
Obama steps up fatherhood advocacy with new mentoring initiative
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, June 21, 2010
President Obama and his family have been active in appearing before the media at community events, rallies and with their dog.
In what is becoming a Father’s Day ritual for the Obama administration, the president on Monday will bring together children, famous dads and nonprofit groups that promote fatherhood to highlight the importance of fathers.
The center of President Obama’s day-long celebration will be a speech at the ARC, an arts and recreation campus in Southeast Washington, where he is set to announce the creation of the President’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative. It will build on a theme that has been central to his family policy and a core part of the White House’s Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships….WordPress Tags: PRESIDENT,BARACK,OBAMA,Rights,ACTIVISM,CHILD,CUSTODY,BATTLE,SEXUAL,ABUSE,CHILDREN,DOMESTIC,VIOLENCE,CIVIL,CORRUPT,POLITICIANS,INITIATIVE,BILL,MOTHER,NONCUSTODIAL,Okay,Another,Father,Worship,HUNDREDS,White,House,Washington,Post,haven,office,From,steps,advocacy,Krissah,Thompson,Staff,Writer,June,events,administration,importance,celebration,speech,recreation,campus,Southeast,creation,theme,policy,Faith,FATHERS,paragraphs,Partnerships
