The official www.fatherhood.gov has this pledge:
Fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that undergirds many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.My kids do not have a father around. Pres. Obama is pledging here to do whatever he can for my kids.
President Obama grew up without his dad, and has said that being a father is the most important job he has. That's why the President is joining dads from across the nation in a fatherhood pledge – a pledge that we'll do everything we can to be there for our children and for young people whose fathers are not around. When you take the President's Fatherhood Pledge, you'll receive updates, tips and resources from fatherhood organizations, prominent dads and other supporters of responsible fatherhood around the nation.
He has done the opposite. He has bet his whole campaign strategy on making promises to single women that they can become independent of men by becoming dependent on govt handouts. Just watch Life of Julia, a cartoon on his campaign web site. Even the leftist Wash. Post fact checker says that Obama is lying, but that is not the point. This cartoon encourages single moms to have a kid with no dad in the picture. The Democrat party has become the anti-dad party.
"In the very early '70s," Warren Farrell recalls, "NOW leaders like Gloria Steinem used to say that the world needs less mothering and more fathering." But according to Warren Farrell, NOW abandoned that stance in large part for political reasons-to cater to its constituency's view that women should retain custody of their children following divorce if they want to. The shift, he charges, marked NOW's transition from an organization dedicated to gender equality to one devoted narrowly to the interests of women.
