Obama Likes Being a Dad?

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

CNN recently ran an interview with President Obama which surprised a ton of people.  Evidently, he doesn’t spend the hours of 6-9pm talking to members of Congress, like most sitting Presidents do.  Instead, he spends that time with his family.

I have to wonder, what does that mean for our country? Does it really affect his job performance?  Are we left to think that our Presidents all have to be over the age of 60, or not have kids?  Personally, given that I have young children I don’t like the idea that somehow wanting to be both a good and hands on father would preclude me from being successful at work.  Personally, I simply don’t think that makes sense!
