Root's Swerdlick: Obama a 'Black Ward Cleaver'

By    |   Thursday, 06 Mar 2014 07:42 PM

President Barack Obama has consistently preached about family values and has led by example, according to David Swerdlick, a columnist and contributing editor for The Root, an African-American news, opinion and culture site.

"If you just look at him as a dad and as a husband, this guy is like a black Ward Cleaver," Swerdlick told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV, referring to the classic family sitcom "Leave It to Beaver."

This week, Obama discussed the importance of family in a "My Brother's Keeper'' speech which focused on young African-American men.

Those comments were nothing new, Swerdlick believes.

"He talks about parenting all the time … He talks about this when he's addressing black college graduations, he talked about this when he spoke at the March on Washington.

"He talks about personal responsibility, about people bringing up their kids in a particular way all the time. He's been doing it since before he was president.''
