Obama on Father's Day: Being a dad takes courage
Obama is reflecting on Father's Day in his weekly radio and Internet address. He says he knows how important dads are because his own father was absent.
Obama says he tries to be the father and husband his family didn't have. He says being able to have a child doesn't make you a man, but having the courage to raise one does.
Obama recorded the address at the White House before departing Friday for North Dakota and California.
In the Republican address, Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma says Obama must nominate a capable and experienced secretary to clean up the Veterans Affairs Department.
