Mr. Obama, why do people hate you?

Incredible exchange with a 10 yr. old.

The ad sucks, but it's worth ignoring 30 seconds to see this.

1. "Incredible" is exactly the right word.

Rather than go after the haters (which I would have done), Obama speaks to that little boy on basically how you turn the other cheek ... and continue on.

Impressive.

3. "That's what I'm talking about!"

I think he loved getting that question just so he could give a "bless their hearts" answer

5. An amazing man, father and President!

He looked at that little boy and thought "how would I answer Sasha if she asked me this." You could see the father come out instantly!

There's no one who could give a better answer about politics to a child!

6. Children are taught to hate by having a hateful role models

Obama understands parenthood and the values he should model for all kids. I truly admire that understanding and practice.

7. From "South Pacific"

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

10. I have seen lots of them, and never get tired of them

I am so impressed by the way he relates to kids! I hope to learn where he got his "skills" in a memoir or something.
