President Barack Obama's speech in Chicago after his re-election Tuesday night, as transcribed by Roll Call:
Renee Suzuki wasn't looking at her phone. Gone to the grocery store, she left her husband, Kurt, and their 15-month-old daughter, Malia, in their East Bay home. She'd put the phone away for mere minutes. When she checked, her heart jumped. Seven missed calls from Kurt.
Have you noticed President Obama's latest rhetorical device? Despite his plea upon entering office to keep daughters Sasha and Malia out of the media spotlight, Mr. Obama is increasingly using them as props to explain his thinking on a host of prickly national issues. Apparently, he believes we'll be disarmed by the poignant references - and see his as the right side.
Barack Obama likes to talk about his kids. What parent doesn't?
In a rare and blunt criticism of education in the nation's capital, President Obama on Monday called D.C. Public Schools a "struggling" system that doesn't measure up to the needs of first daughters Sasha and Malia.
President Obama and the first family said goodbye to Maine on Sunday after an energetic weekend vacation along the Atlantic coast.
