Daniel Moynihan linked absent fathers to poverty and other ills many years ago. But Barack Obama speaks from personal experience and had the respect of the audience he addressed yesterday. My one addition is that there are complex reasons why African American fathers are less responsible than they could be, but I am sure Obama knows the broader context: these have to do with not being "respected" and not being given a fair shake. Of course some of the time they serve as excuses. African American women end up with the responsibility.
