Barack Obama Thinks Beyoncé Is the Best Role Model for His Daughters: Do You?

Hip hop power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z recently hosted a fundraiser for Obama's re-election and raised more than $4 million for the president. During the event, Obama joked with Jay-Z saying "Jay-Z now knows, you know, what my life is like. We both have daughters. And our wives are more popular than we are... So we've got a little bond there. It's hard, but it's okay."

He went on to continue singing Beyonce's praises claiming "Beyonce couldn't be a better role model for my girls." If that's not the ultimate confidence boost I don't know what is. Do you agree with the President? Is Beyonce one of the best role models for kids today?

    She was a virgin til she married. Obama has repeatedly said he wants his girls to be able to abort their mistakes.

    Aside from that, beyonce didn't finish her education and wouldn't be famous without a MAN's help. None of that is encouraging self reliance or education. Well, add the fact that she likes obama and we have the triangle of doom there.

    GoreGirl said, " If he stopped paying so much time with celebrities and having fun and parties and worry more about being the goddamn president and deal with the entire Middle East and most of Asia HATING OUR GUTS AND KILLING OUT PEOPLE"
    Couldn't have said it better and she hits the nail right on the head!!! Good job GoreGirl!!!

    Perhaps he said that because, "Beyoncé found herself under fire for performing a private concert for Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi on New Year's Eve in 2010." I would not choose a mega millionaire "entertainer" as a role model. Little too elitist and shallow,don't you think.

    Although she's very pretty I don't think she's a good role model.SIngers generally aren't.

    I think the best role models for children are their parents. I did my best to set a good example for my kids and didn't depend on others to show them how to be good people. My kids are some of the finest people you could ever meet. I don't take credit for everything good about them, I just did the best I could to steer them in the right direction.

    Well, that's kind of a misleading way of asking the question. Obama said Beyonce "couldn't be a better role model" not that she's the "best" role model for his daughters. I don't think celebs should ever be the primary role model for children. That's their parents' job. But he didn't really say that.

    Not yes as in BEST, but a decently good female role model. Married, good mom, no personal drama, carries herself well, wealthy business woman, charitable, beautiful, talented, Milfy, etc.

    That may have been a nice compliment to Jay...albeit Michelle Obama being an actual first for his daughters in the role model department. It's a compliment...damn.

    Beyonc'e is an excellent "Role Model" for all little girls! You never hear of Beyonc'e in the magazines or News with bad publicity. Now,Beyonc'e is a mother herself and a mother is the example for their daughters! The first lady Mrs Michelle Obama is a good "Role Model" also,she has accomplished something that will go down in "History"! I'm proud of "Both" women,for showing how to be a good example for all women!!

    She married a thug. He is a thug. Money does not make you respectable. It makes you a thug with money. Barack wants to be bonded with a thug? Sadly, the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

    Absolutely. Google Beyonce and the Illumanti, and Beyonce and the Black Boule. Shows just how much she and Jay-Z love money.

    I am not familiar with Beyonce's life style, but Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan from a few years ago would be a better match to his mother's lifestyle.

    In this case the Islamic flag would be an insult to Islam and likely for them to call for a beheadal.

    Edit: The insult part is marvelous.

    Beyonce, comes from a good family. Her father was a very successful business man who quit his own high power career to help his daughters peruse their passion. Her mother was a successful small business woman who started from nothing and built her business from the ground up before also later in life helping her daughters peruse their dreams.

    Beyonce was raised with good values and morals. She married a man who literally made billions out of nothing. She and her husband are examples of the American dream that all the haters (read as right wing douche bags) wish they had!

    JEALOUSY AND ENVY ARE NOT CHRISTIAN VALUES, DESPITE WHAT YOU ARE BEING TOLD/TAUGHT IN RW-TEA'VANGELICAL CIRCLES!

    there are so many reasons, that it is hard to pick just one. but doesn't Obama think their mother is any good? Now while many will say he is a$$ kissing for a vote, he does so at the expense of his wife and daughters

    And she is VERY overrated, SMH. I have heard other young singers that sounds so much better than her and even dance better than her, but some singers are underrated and some are overrated.
