Sasha Obama Is What Happens When Fathers Love & Respect Their Daughters (VIDEO)

Inspiring 62

sasha obama I loved basically every second of Obama's victory speech, but one of my absolute favorite moments was when 11-year-old Sasha tugged at her father's sleeve and whispered in his ear, reminding him to turn around and wave at the people behind him (who, of course, responded by cheering even louder).

It was sweet and cute and poignant, but it was so much more, really. Because in that brief exchange, President Obama and Sasha showed the world precisely what a healthy father/daughter relationship looks like: A mutual admiration society with a strong foundation in respect.

The fact that Sasha noticed the crowd was in need of some presidential attention and gave her dad a nudge -- in front of  millions of people -- tells us that she's a thoughtful, caring girl who has been raised to feel like what she has to say is worthwhile. Like her opinion matters. The fact that President Obama took his 11-year-old daughter's advice without hesitation tells us that he has never, ever made his children feel small or unimportant as people. Which leads me to another one of my absolute favorite moments from the speech -- when Presdient Obama spoke these words:

"Sasha and Malia, before our very eyes, you're growing up to become two strong, smart, beautiful young women, just like your mom ... and I am so proud of you guys."

I cannot wait until this four years are over. Every single thing he does, does not make him God. You act like he is the only President who loves his kids.

When He farts, you will probably be writing an article about how it smells like fruit loops.

I think you read a little to far into this.

bills... billsfan1104

No Felly. This is about the fourth article about him that does nothing but swoon

He is a great father and husband. But lets not pretend like he is the first.

I think it was a very sweet moment.  Not all daughters have that kind of relationships with their dads.

Bitterfan, why so much hatred over an article about how sweet his daughter is?

Bills - amen! Political affiliations aside, the utter cult like adoration in these articles is just beyond. And I would say the same thing if these pieces were being written about Romney or anyone else for that matter. Because she nudged him to turn to the people behind him, means they have a fantastic father daughter relationship??? That may be the biggest stretch of all time. I can nudge someone to turn around on the subway! That Obama took her advice without hesitation!?! Good grief, get over the leg humping already

RMT, every single one of you liberals remind me the followers of Jim Jones. Keep drinking the kool-aid.
