Obama Cares! Only those who lived through the struggle can understand how the average american has had to endure...He remembers. He can never forget...The current lot of GOP have no idea how life is for the average American.

why in the world would you make this a bush thing? jeez people either Bush is not president anymore...and who cares if Obama got interviewed by kids...Did Clinton, did Carter, did Kennedy???? What makes Obama so much better? Or does it just show that he is like those children, naive and still learning how to do his job?

I do not believe that any president has ever been interviewed by children. AWESOME!

He talked with some children. Why do we have to make this more than what it is? Has anyone here not spoken to children? There are always negative people that can't see good in anything.

Obama is a man, he isn't the Messiah. It wasn't possible for anyone to fix all of the problems that Bush created or exacerbated.

Let's see when did George W. Bush make the news reading to school children, oh yes, when the planes were hitting the towers. Then he did not excuse himself to go and do his job because he did not want to up set the children, while the second plane was still in the air, oh and where were the jets guarding our country, every last one gone training, thanks to Dick. But the Republicans are the ones known for protecting America. Gee don't we miss the exciting times of the Bush administration.
President Obama seems so normal, I just wish we could do more, like single payer health care

Why do people want to take a nice moment and politicize it? And Debbie W. what he's doing is part of "minding the store". Reaching out to young people is very important..
