Quote of The Day: The Obamas at Church

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Barack Obama and family attended the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago yesterday where he graciously dropped some fatherly knowledge:

“What I’ve realized is that life doesn’t count for much unless you’re willing to do your small part to leave our children — all of our children — a better world. Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.”

Leave it to our man Barack to lay it out with class and honesty.

Obama ’08 – Yes We Can!!!!

    Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.

    If I had my dead beat fathers email address I would forward this to him….. I totally agree, it is time we take responsibility for our actions. It takes a lot more than just sperm to have and nurture a child.

  • Celebrity CSI

    He is absolutely correct. There is more to parenting than being a donor. My husband is a great father to our daughter & he’s good to me. Real good. lol

  • Negrodamus Believes

    Negrodamus Believes it takes a village to raise a child, but a lot of stable families to build a village.

    I like Obama addressing issues that socially handicap our community. These types of statements also show the true sickness of white people..They praise the Bill Cosby’s of the world for making such statements, but shun any notion,concept or plans to build black solidarity.

    it’s ashamed that only 9 people had a comment to day on this topic.. and 3 don’t even count b/c it wasn’t a comment, meanwhile 124 had a comment about Ashanti. being a great father and husband is more important, than what Ashanti wore or any other celebrity for that matter. Our priorities are not straight/correct.

  • Lady elle

    real talk:

    yes, can we have a real discussion here….

  • Just Sit and Be Pretty

    I love this man, does he speak truth or what?!?!?!

    Add this to the passing on Tim Russert and how devoted he was to his son and his great relationship with his own dad and right about a bunch of folks should be hanging their heads in shame for NOT doing right by their kids. However, it’s never to late to start…

    “Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.”

    …I love it!!! Preach Obama..PREACH!!

  • Just Sit and Be Pretty

    oops, ‘cuse my typos, but y’all get my drift…:-)

  • Negrodamus Believes

    Negrodamus Believes white people like this rhetoric by Obama, but hate action or blueprints, with the words “black, for black” etc. etc..White people should understand that black solidarity, un-politicizing education and more black unity, is also a benefit to their quality of life as well..That’s the racism..No matter how successful you are, they still don’t see us as equals..That’s why we should replace them with pork.

    that is so right , let it be kim k ‘s fake butt injection and you get 1000 posts on why black men date non black women…and what they think is so bad about black women.. but its strange b/c you never hear white men putting white women down after they date out of their race… white men put the black man down but never talk bad about their women… take heed!!!!
