Obama reflects on being a dad in Title IX tribute

(CNN) - President Barack Obama used his daughter Sasha as an example of the success of Title IX, a law that prohibits discrimination of women in sports and education, in a Newsweek op-ed that honors its 40th anniversary.

Obama, who helps coach his daughter’s basketball team, wrote that while there are “few things more fulfilling than watching your child discover a passion for something,” prior to Title IX, “something like pursuing varsity sports was an unlikely dream for young women in America.”

    Come on, he did not reflect, he went and played golf and figured how how he is going to lie to us next. You in the liberally biased media are humping for this corrupt, incompetent, inept, union toady so hard, you constantly try to decieve us. It is so disgraceful. But you get away with it thanks to the dumbing down of this country by the NEA.

    Former VP Dick Cheney needs to thank President Obama for everything he's done. Cheney and his wife have just garnered up enough guts to acknowledge the marriage of their lesbian daughter and her children because when Cheney was in office and asked about his daughter and gay/lesbian rights he got very angry and so did his wife. Now they too benefit from the COURAGEOUSNESS AND BOLDNESS OF PRESIDENT OBAMA that's all part of MOVING FORWARD.

    It’s great to have a President who supports and works for freedom and equality for all Americans, and not just for those who agree with him.
