Biden and Obama: Bad for Dads

Gordon Finley, PhD has a piece at Mens News Daily entitled: a href=”http://mensnewsdaily.com/2008/08/24/obamabiden-escalating-the-war-on-fathers-and-families/”Obama/Biden: Escalating the war on fathers and families: /abr /br /blockquoteTragically — but true to the radical feminist agenda — the Obama/Biden Democratic ticket portends an escalating war on boys, men, fathers, and families. On Father’s Day 2008, Sen. Obama could have spoken on any number of topics. His choice was to castigate African-American fathers and blame fathers, and fathers alone, for the ills of the African-American family.br /br /He called upon African-American fathers to be more involved in their children’s lives (certainly a worthwhile call) but he also castigated them for failing to endorse “responsible fatherhood” which essentially means signing up for 18 years of overly highly calculated child support. Economists understand, but Sen. Obama ideologically overlooks, the reality that child support currently is calculated at a level far above what the majority of fathers — including poor and unemployed fathers — actually are capable of paying or that children require (see W. S. Comanor, The law and economics of child support payments, 2004)./blockquotebr /br /Remember, Senator Biden is the guy willing to give ex-wives free attorneys to help in their divorce cases. As I a href=”http://drhelen.blogspot.com/2008/05/senator-biden-wants-to-give-your-ex.html”asked in a post here:/a br /br /blockquoteWhy should only women get “free” attorneys basically provided by the government? What about low income men who cannot get custody of their children or men who are falsely accused of domestic violence–where is their free attorney? Isn’t this unfair?/blockquotebr /br /It is obvious that Biden does not have men’s interests at heart. If he is willing to throw aside men’s constitutional rights and due process in order to look chivalrous and get votes from women, what else is he willing to do?
