Prez Obama -- From Government to Goalies

5/16/2009 2:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama may not be a "hockey mom" but he has got the wild parent on the sidelines thing down pat.

Prez Barack Obama: Click to launch!
Prez Obama let his guard down as he cheered like crazy for his daughters Malia and Sasha -- who were playing soccer today in D.C.

How's that for pressure for the opposing team?

I'm glad to see he has plenty of free time while the country suffers through the recession. I wasted my vote on this joker!

You're kidding right? He can still lead the country while also spending some time watching his kids play soccer.

Sara---- You wasted your vote? If you think prez obama can turn things around in less than a year when it took 8 years to mess it up then you shouldnt be voting anyway. The man is still a father, husband as well as president. He still has responsibilities to his family. Surely you can't think your vote meant he would dump his family and just look out for others...I would be worried if that was the kind of man we elected into presidency. Grow up.

Sara-
All work and no play would make even the strongest person looney.
He didn't mess up the country in 8 years like someone we know. So, don't expect him to clean it up in 8 months.
Give the guy a break. He does do his job.

A man HAS TO BE A FATHER TO HIS KIDS no matter what kind of job he has- a janitor or President of The USA....its small moments like going to their soccer games is something that a child will remember for the rest of their life.

Don't jump on Sara. She DID NOT vote for Obama. I doubt she even voted. She may not even be a female. It's the very first comment and it's designed to be provocative and inspire feedback. I don't know a decent person on this planet who would knock a father for attending his kids' soccer game. He has to pick and choose his events and I'm sure he misses more of his kids' events than he attends.

Sara or whoever you are (perhaps TMZ), nice try on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Politics aside, he is an awesome father to those sweet girls. What an inspirational example of being a participatory father.

Seriously? President Bush has won the award of taking the most presidential vacations in history, and he broke the record even before his 2nd term ended.

So I forgive him for taking an 30 min to and hour off... you try working 24/7....

plus its not like he didnt actually do anything since January, a lot more then bush did in years...

What's up with that woman to his right. WTF kinda outfit is she wearing? A giant wide-brimmed black hat with striped shirt and sweater tied around the waist. Didn't Dorothy drop a house on her?

First of all nobody said anything about Bush going back home (to his ranch ) all the time ...i think sometimes TMZ starts stuff just to get people going and it works because people get all crazy....it`s good to see him with his family

A lot of the presidents we've had in the past, had kids who were in high school or graduating from high school, there hasn't been kid kids in the White House for a long time. So what if he's at his kids soccer game, that makes him an even better person, he knows how to keep his priorities in line.
