President to Daughters: I’m Not a Perfect Dad, But I’m Trying

In a Father’s Day “letter” dedicated to his two daughters in People Magazine [1], President Obama waxed poetic about how he longed to have his dad around when he was growing up and said that he’s tried, though not always successfully, to do better and be there for his girls. “That’s not to say I’ve always been a perfect dad,” the president wrote in People. “I haven’t. When Malia and Sasha were younger, work kept me away from home more than it should have. At times, the burden of raising our two daughters has fallen too heavily on Michelle.” (June 2011)
