Fortunately for President Obama, there is one job where his approval ratings are soaring: fatherhood. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Like almost half of all kids today, having a father at home was a luxury Barack Obama didn't enjoy. And last week, he launched a new program to spare other kids the same issues. To fight the crime and poverty that comes with broken families, the President kicked off a program called My Brother's Keeper to help minority boys. And while it's fine for the government to raise awareness about the problem -- it's not fine, or even possible, for the government to be the solution. What these kids need isn't Washington's touch, but a family's. Until now, the President's liberal agenda of abortion, promiscuity, and same-sex "marriage" hasn't fixed the problems, it's exacerbated them. Focusing on minority kids could have a huge impact on American society -- if the President realizes that marriage, life, and faith are essential ingredients.
