Barack Obama got his Cosby on this morning, criticizing men who don't take responsibility for helping raise their children in a Father's Day speech at Apostolic Church of God in Chicago.
If you just read the prepared text of his speech, you'll miss this quote at around 4:00:
We need fathers to realize that responsibility doesn’t just end at conception. That doesn’t just make you a father. What makes you a man is not the ability to have a child. 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.And you'll miss his reference to Chris Rock's routine [he was the 13th Apostle, after all] about black men wanting credit for not going to jail. [Unfortunately, Only Rock did not call them "black men." And Obama did not ask, "What do you want, a cookie?"
