All First Ladies take up a cause. Michelle Obama has hers. She has designated herself as the High-Sheriff of food and what we eat. Yes, the First Lady is taking charge of keeping the body mass index of you and your kids within the suggested range. How nice.
Mrs. Reagan said “just say no to drugs.” Michelle Obama says no to what you really want to eat. She favors controlling what children eat by limiting the menus where they go to school. Parents just aren’t up to the job in Michelle’s view. My opinion: She likes to tell people what to do, just like her husband. It’s what statists do.
You’d think maybe the First Lady might do a better job of setting an example. She has an affinity for things that are definitely not body mass friendly. Both Michelle and the president have been seen at burger joints chowing down.
Personally, I like a good old Texas-sized burger once in a while. I don’t need lectures from anyone, except my wife and maybe my doctor about my diet. Why this double standard from the First Lady? Does she have some sort of eating disorder? What’s with her food obsession and the contradictions? Must she project her problem on the American people?
Must she project it on her own children:
Michelle Obama has, on more than one occasion, drawn attention to her daughtersâ€™ weight and BMI (body mass index) in an attempt to justify her Food Police agenda. Rather than coming out and saying, â€œGee, I really want to control what people eat and drink because I think itâ€™d be funâ€, the First Lady is poking her finger at her own kids and telling parents, â€œSee, I relate to you. Your kids arenâ€™t the only ones with a little paunch â€“ look at my girls!â€

OK, OK, I guess one could ask if it’s fair to question Michelle Obama’s motives. Maybe she just wants to help do something about the obesity problem in America. Maybe she has the best interest of the school kids at heart. Maybe . . . but it doesn’t matter. This is not an issue that can be or should be managed from the White House.
Let parents and local school districts decide what’s on the menu at the local elementary. For gosh sakes, my own daughter who teaches 2nd grade in Texas is not allowed to serve cup-cakes during class parties. Stupid, and I wonder if her kids would be a bit more trim (and happy) if they were allowed more than two days of recess per week.
It’s all so weird. Michelle gardens on the White House grounds, but does SHE really? She worries about body mass and burgers but she likes her ribs and as for her own body mass . . . never mind.
Something is not right about all this. Watch in this video and you’ll see it includes a lot of big belts to create the illusion of a waste line that doesn’t much exist. This shouldn’t be my problem or concern but since Michelle wants to dictate salads where many Americans might prefer beef, she is fair game . . . for this:
Sorry about the ridicule, FLOTUS, but you and the professor president have made a career on it. So I leave you, Michelle, with this last thought: two axe handles! At least.
