Little Boy Asks Obama Why Do People Hate You

We all know Obama is a puppet, and so are all other past and future presidents. "This country (America) was bought and sold off a while ago,the shit they shuffle around every four years...doesn't mean a thing..."
-George Carlin.

ABC News' Matthew Jaffe reports: President Obama, like any other President, has his fair share of critics. Even fourth-graders have noticed.

"Why do people hate you?", a fourth-grade boy asked Obama at a town hall event in New Orleans today. "They're supposed to love you. And God is love."

"That's what I'm talking about," replied the President.

"First of all, I did get elected president, so not everybody hates me," Obama noted, before adding, "What is true is if you were watching TV lately, it seems like everybody's just getting mad all the time. And I -- you know, I think that you've got to take it with a grain of salt. Some of it is just what's called politics where, you know, once one party wins, then the other party kind of gets -- feels like it needs to poke you a little bit to keep you on your toes."

"And so you shouldn't take it too seriously," Obama told the boy. "And then, sometimes, as I said before, people just -- I think they're worried about their own lives. A lot of people are losing their jobs right now. A lot of people are losing their health care or they've lost their homes to foreclosure, and they're feeling frustrated. And when you're president of the United States, you know, you've got to deal with all of that."
"You get some of the credit when things go good. And when things are going tough, then, you know, you're going to get some of the blame, and that's part of the job," he continued. "But, you know, I'm a pretty tough guy."
"You've just got to keep on going, even when folks are criticizing you, because -- as long as you know that you're doing it for other people, all right?" Obama concluded.
The boy's question was the last one the President fielded at his event at the University of New Orleans, his first trip to the city since being elected to the Oval Office.

When I was searching video in youtube I get interested when I saw this video. I like the content of this video because it seems that how can a little young boy can asked a question to the president of the United States of America in front of many people. He never felt ashamed on what kind of question he asked. In fact Obamma didn't answer his question.But there's one thing that I dislike in this video is how can the people surround him(Obamma) tolerate this kind of kid without knowing that this kid could make Obamma get mad even if it is not showed in the video. I can relate this as what I have learned in my Psychology class, The Moral Development (changes in the cpacity to reason about an action's rightness or wrongness that occur with age.) of Lawrence Kohlberg the child is in the stage of Conventional Level (Good-boy-good-girl) which is the orientation is Emphasis on conformity. Behavior that pleases others and is approved by them is good behavior. The child couldn't notice that he did some scene that can get an attention because he doesn't care on what the surroundings will say. He is still young at can't understand what he had done.
