Obama goes political on Mother’s Day and calls for Paid Paternity Leave

The guy couldn’t just say Happy Mother’s Day to America’s mothers, or share some heartfelt memories of his own Mom who died shortly before he became president. 
That would’ve been appropriate.  I guess that was too much to ask from the worst president in U.S. history.  

CNS News reports in a weekly address celebrating Mother’s Day, President Barack Obama on Saturday called for paid “paternity leave.”
He also said: “let’s give mothers the respect they deserve.”

“Giving flowers is always a good idea,” Obama said. “But I hope that on this Mother’s Day, we’ll recommit ourselves to doing more than that: Through deeds that match our words, let’s give mothers the respect they deserve, give all women the equality they deserve, and give all parents the support they need in their most important roles.”
