If anyone was wondering how Obama views himself as president, this one little statement issued as he reflected on Father’s Day would sum it up nicely. Obama stated “being a dad ‘the most important job many of us will ever have’ and there was no substitute for being in a child’s life. He went on to give a summation of his life without a father, what he tries to accomplish for his family and then sums up how he will recall his life.
“When I look back on my life, I won’t be thinking about any particular legislation I passed or policy I promoted,” Obama said. “I’ll be thinking about Michelle, and the journey we’ve been on together.”
That statement had me feeling like Aunt Pitty Pat in “Gone with the Wind” when the ammunition explosions were shaking the whole of Atlanta before Sherman blazed through town during the War of Northern Aggression. “Where are my smelling salts?”
He won’t be thinking about any particular legislation he passed. Interesting how that one little phrase unconsciously slipped through but says volumes. I would call that a major Freudian slip. Legislation he passed. The American public should pay attention to that statement and phrase; but, they miss those words as they fawn over his statements about fathers and lament his circumstances of being without one in his life. They will focus on his contemplation about what he as president can do to encourage marriage and strong family while forgetting he has done plenty to tear it down.
