Tough love from our national daddy
I suspect your father was also less likely to send a drone to kill you. And there's no way his debt/earnings ratio was as bad as Obama's, or you would have been visiting him in prison. If he strutted around making ridiculous boasts like "I shoot skeet all the time," you probably got beat up in school a lot.
Maybe we're being too hard on poor Chris Rock. It was only a few weeks ago that Jamie Foxx was telling people Obama was the Messiah, "your Lord and Savior." National boss-daddy is a bit of a downgrade for the cult of personality.
