WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama smiled when he said his large ears and funny name once made him a target of school-yard harassment. But he was all seriousness Thursday when he told a White House conference on bullying that torment and intimidation must not be tolerated.
Some 13 million students, about a third of all those attending school, are bullied every year, the White House said. Experts say that puts them at greater risk of falling behind in their studies, abusing drugs or alcohol, or suffering mental or other health problems. Kids who are seen as different because of their race, clothes, disability or sexual orientation are more likely to be bullied.
"If there's one goal of this conference," Obama said, "it's to dispel the myth that bullying is just a harmless rite of passage or an inevitable part of growing up. It's not." He spoke to more than 100 parents, students, teachers and others gathered to discuss the problem and share ideas for solutions.

I’m sure he received multiple wedgies throughout his life.
And I think he liked it.
He’s a VICTIM! It is impossible to take personal responsibility for your actions when you consider yourself a victim. Rush nailed him to a T when he dubbed him a man-child.
Now, he travels the world apologizing.
The flippin' world fallin' apart.
The U.S. economy in the tank.
Enemies and threats gaining ground, ready to run up our a$$.
Our whiner-in-chief has nothing better to do than watch his daughter play basketball, slurp ice cream, and shake his finger at us about bullying.
He can find time to get to a Motown nite, courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer, but has no time for his closest advisers when the wolves are at the door.
He can tell us right upfront a police officer responding to a call about a break-in behaved stupidly when confronted by a belligerent and unknown suspect, but tells us to not rush to judgement when a Muslim shouting, "Allahu akabhar," guns down U.S. servicemen.
Almost anything 0 does starts to trigger my gag reflex.
I;m sure he wasn’t treated well on the play ground. Not because of his ears, but because he’s a snooty, spoiled little a-hole.
obama playing the part of victim? I never would have guessed it!/s
I’m hoping he got regular ass whoopins as a yuth.
Another piece of the puzzle falls into place...
Meanwhile, the professional bullies of barackobama.com, aka as Organizing for America, are sending death threats to Republicans in Wisconsin.
Homosexual activists have employed an “anti-bullying” campaign to promote their agenda to abuse, exploit and corrupt children.
Bullies have been around since the first school was started.
You teach your kid to fight and it stops, or cower and be a coward all their lives.
Can anyone concieve of T.R. making this speach?
Owebama being a “bullying victim” explains a LOT about why he is the way he is. He’s narcissistic, weak, eternally apologetic, narrow-minded and unable to see anything from any other point of view than his own. That is not the makings of a leader.
Still love your nic Mutt.
There is only one thing a bully understands and that’s intimidation. One good sucker punch or two and he goes away.
