Obama Participates in New "Anti-Bully" Campaign

Posted: Mar 19, 2012 8:28 AM

Pot meet kettle. President Obama has given his voice to a new anti-bullying campaign. If only Obama would apply the same attitude toward the way he pushes public policy, starting with his associations to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Media Matters and his bullying of the country into his extremely unpopular ObamaCare legislation. 

President Obama opened up a 30-minute documentary on childhood bullying for Cartoon Network this evening, continuing awareness initiatives he set into motion last year.

The minute-long introduction, which was pre-taped, featured the president speaking directly to the camera for the documentary titled “To SPEAK UP Against Bullying,”  a 30-minute special broadcast that aired Sunday on Cartoon Network.

“Bullying is not a rite of passage or harmless part of growing up,” Obama said. “It’s wrong. Its destructive and we can all prevent it.”

Obama said that for him the issue is personal.

“I care about this issue deeply, not just as the president, but as a dad,” he said referring to his two daughters, Sasha and Malia.
