Obama preaches like Cosby in the way righties like by calling on black men to change their behavior. Like Cosby's words, Obama's are very nice, but of course they're merely a sermon backed without solutions. But, if you're Republican, I think you prefer speeches to solutions, especially when it comes to so-called family values. http://abcnews.go.com/WN/Vote2008/story?id=5172580&page=1 In a stern Father's Day address, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told an African-American congregation today that too many fathers -- including his own -- have failed their children. The Democratic candidate speaks of the importance of being a father. "They've abandoned their responsibilities," said Obama, the putative Democratic nominee for president. "They're acting like boys instead of men, and the foundations of our families have suffered because of it. You and I know this is true, but nowhere is it more true than in the African-American community." The Democratic presidential hopeful noted that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households, making them five times more likely to live in poverty and 20 times more likely to end up in prison. "Any fool can have a child," Obama said. "That doesn't make you a father. It's the courage to raise a child that makes you a father."
