Fathers Day message

Pres. Barack Obama put out this Fathers Day message:
And while no government program can fill the role that fathers play for our children, what we can do is try to support fathers who are willing to step up and fulfill their responsibilities as parents, partners and providers. That's why last year I started a nationwide dialogue on fatherhood to tackle the challenge of father absence head on. ... You can learn more at www.fatherhood.gov.
This looks like a big smokescreen to me. I could not find anything substantial to help fathers. If the feds really wanted to help, they could start by repealing the Bradley Amendment.

typical politician, regardless of party affiliation, just make noise for the current cause celebre but stick with whatever gets the money and the votes.
