While lunching at the Jolly Pumpkin Brewery in Detroit today, Obama told his lunch companions that he turned down a request to speak at Malia’s graduation, saying he will be too emotional.
“Malia's school asked if I wanted to speak at commencement and I said no,” the president said. “I'm going to be wearing dark glasses ... and I’m going to cry.”
You know after the last couple of days it's nice to hear how a REAL parent responds to their children.
And I am totally with the President on this, I get all damp around the eye sockets every time I even look at a picture of my daughter from when she was a little girl, or hear about how well she is doing today.
The President is a good man, and clearly an even better father.
