Check out the Obama Mega Post over @ Racialicious

"Many said Obama’s lambasting of the stereotypical black father was over the top. I don’t really agree with that. He thankfully did note that half of black households do indeed have a Dad present. Again, not great, but certainly not the dire 70% picture many people usually correlate with the unfortunate percentage of out of wedlock births. And while he did lay it on Black fathers who aren’t active, he did praise the men (especially Michelle’s father) who do indeed sacrifice and put in work. And given the occasion (duh, check the holiday) I think such a speech was timely and appropriate, not pandering. What did you want him to talk about, burning bushes and whales?
