Obama's New Year's Resolution: Be Nicer to the Press

In a press conference at the White House, CNN’s Brianna Keiler asked the question on everyone’s mind: what, exactly, was the President’s New Year’s resolution?

After asking Obama how far he had come in implementing the agenda he spelled out in his January second inaugural address, Keilar asked, “If I may just, quickly, on a more personal note, what is your New Year’s resolution?”

Obama’s similarly sycophantic answer: “My New Year’s resolution is to be nicer to the White House press corps.”

Second resolution: submit to really hard-hitting interviews ... with comedians.
Obama girls get dating advice from their watchful dad

Dec 20 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama says he's not worried about his daughters starting to date. After all, he's got some help keeping an eye on them.

Malia, age 15, and Sasha, age 12, are "very sensible," Obama told comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey in a television interview that aired on Friday.

"And the second thing is, I've got men with guns following them around all the time," Obama quipped, referring to the Secret Service detail that is a constant presence around his family.

"This is the main reason I ran for re-election," he joked in the light-hearted interview taped at the White House. "You know I'm going to have them covered for most of high school." Obama and his family left for a two-week holiday in Hawaii on Friday.

He and his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, have worked hard to keep their daughters out of the public eye as much as possible during his presidency.

"They're doing great, but they grow up so fast," Obama said in the interview.

Obama said he worries about "getting in the way of the girls just having a normal life" and said he has taught them to make good decisions about relationships.

"What I've told them before is, as long as that young man is showing you respect, and is kind to you, then I'm not going to be hovering over every second," he said.

"I think it's intimidating enough to be asking out the daughter of the president without me adding to that intimidation factor," he said.
Sounds like a homophobe to me. Not one mention of the prospect of their being "out and proud."
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
