Obama’s Letter To His Daughters


I hope both of you will take up that work, righting the wrongs that you see and working to
give others the chances you’ve had. Not just because you have an obligation to give something back
to this country that has given our family so much-although you do have that obligation. But because
you have an obligation to yourself. Because it is only when you hitch your wagon to something
larger than yourself that you will realize your true potential.

These are the things I want for you-to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and
no achievements beyond your reach, and to grow into compassionate, committed women who will help
build that world. And I want every child to have the same chances to learn and dream and grow and
thrive that you girls have. That’s why I’ve taken our family on this great adventure.

I am so proud of both of you. I love you more than you can ever know. And I am grateful every
day for your patience, poise, grace, and humor as we prepare to start our new life together in the
White House.

  1. While there might be some disagreements on a point-by-point basis with the President-Elect, I’m proud of the man. And I’m proud of my vote.

  2. Meanwhile Chimpy’s letter to his daughters involved the name/number of the best drug dealer and which clubs don’t i.d…
    Kudos to President-elect Obama!!! (and his fab daughters!!!)

  3. Why is it that Democratic and liberal politicians have such intelligent, compassionate, well-mannered, attractive children who don’t get drunk or pregnant before marriage? Must be a “class” thing.

  4. It’s a contrived piece of work. And as far as the “well mannered” comment is concerned… THEY ARE UNDER 11 YEARS OF AGE!!! Give it a couple of years.
