WASHINGTON – After wrapping her arms around the retail giant Wal-Mart and trying to cajole foodmakers into producing nutrition labels that are easier to understand, Michelle Obama has her sights set on a new target: the nation’s restaurants.

A team of advisers to the First Lady has been holding private talks over the past year with the National Restaurant Association, a trade group, in a bid to get restaurants to adopt her goals of smaller portions and children’s meals that include offerings healthier than French fries and soda, according to White House and industry officials.

Now as you can probably guess I try to ignore Michelle Obama as much as possible. As far as I am concerned, the First Lady should be seen and not heard. I didn’t vote for her and I don’t think she is a “co-president” like Hillary Clinton tried to be. If First Ladies want to work with children or engage in any other charitable works or adopt a cause, that’s fine. But they need to stay away from policy matters. AND they need to stop preaching at us – especially when they are complete hypocrites like Mrs. Obama. She has been on a crusade against obesity, admirable enough. But at every turn she ignores her own platform and indulges in banquets fit for a boatloads of Vikings. Now she is trying to tell restaurants how much they should serve. This after a super spread for the Super Bowl:

For his Super Bowl party Sunday evening, Obama is offering Yuengling Lager and Light, brewed in Pennsylvania, and Hinterland Pale Ale and Amber Ale, all the way from Wisconsin. Independents can pour down some White House Honey Ale if they like.

The rest of the menu for the 100 or so guests at the White House bash is tailgate-friendly even if served inside the Executive Mansion: bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza and Buffalo wings with sides of German potato salad, twice-baked potatoes and assorted chips and dips. LINK

How much of this can we take? Liberals are on a new crusade to tell us what we can and can’t eat – salt, sugar, soda drinks, calories, you name it the food police under the likes of NYC Mayor Bloomberg are trying to use their government power to limit what we can eat. It’s the nanny state run amok.

For the record, most restaurants already have “healthy choices” on their menus. Children are notoriously finicky as most parents will verify. Most of us do our best trying to put healthy food on the table, some are just happy to put ANY food on the table in this economy. The last thing we need is liberals telling us how bad a job we are doing just because little Johnny is going through a Spaghetti-O phase. They usually outgrow it and those who don’t have bigger issues than food.

As for me – I’m a grown man and I don’t need ANYONE to tell me what I can or can’t do with my body. (Sound familiar?) But that liberal mantra only holds water when you are putting a pair of scissors through the spine of a newborn, though. Well, I say it’s my CHOICE to eat a CHEESESTEAK!

Chicken fingers and fries aren’t going to kill you faster that say President Obama’s SMOKING! Maybe Michelle should focus on getting her own house in order before preaching to the rest of us.

    It’s the elitist mentality… do as I say, not as I do, and don’t you EVER comment on anything I do…

  2. Rick says:

    We are going to be called racists for pointing this out.

  3. Randal Graves says:

    Yeah, let’s just keep letting the 61% of adults become more obese and a bigger burden on the American taxpayer. Not to mention all of the fat kids who can’t run around the block. I hope they super-size it until they explode. They make me sick!

  4. Wyatt Earp says:

    That’s what’s great about America. You have the freedom to be a fat f**k if you want to, without the nanny state getting in the way.

    As for Mrs. Obama, physician, heal thyself! Her ass has its own congressman now.

    • Dustoff says:

      LOL….. When the Senate & Congress follow the same ideas/rules.

      Then maybe I’ll think about it.

      Talk about fat jerks.

    I used to down cheesesteaks pizza and hoagies when I lived in Philly.
    Still love scrapple, pork roll, tastykakes and other things that probably aren’t all that good for me…and yet, I’m still about 150 lbs.

    It’s more about genetic preponderance than anything else. Some people WILL gain weight more easily than others (by looking at food), and it’s not necessarily their fault.
    The idea is to work at not getting THAT bad off.

    Those that CHOOSE to live off the gov’t dole while socking down ALL that fatty food and sugery drink crap IS a HUGE problem, however.
    (pun not intended)

    Most ALL the welfare queens I see around tend to “beep” whenever THEY back the hell up.
    All they need are black & yellow stripes on their WIDE asses as they squeeze into those nice, shiny new cars w/ “handicap plates” everyone else paid for!

    Hands off MY grub, Michelle.

    LOL be careful they might be monitoring this to see who is speaking out against them. What nerve a Kenyan Born Negro and some South Side Chicago decedent of a slave trying to tell people what to do. First your Kenyan Liar and Chief should produce his birth certificate, and then should be investigated by Mr. Issa and brought up on charges. Second; Did you check out the neighborhoods in South Side Chicago? The District he resided yeah that one.
    Third: And the Slum Lord and Assistant Valarie Jarret and these former slaves are a foresight of how Blacks really feel about whites. Its one thing you vote for him which is your right, but to follow them and have your mouth up their butts on every turn thinking that your getting back at whiteie?
    You know the sad truth he is so deceived the Black Race and they are too stupid to realize it. FYI
    High Unemployment:
    Indians (Eastern) NO
    Asian American NO
    Middle Easterner NO
    Whites Some
    Yeah Right and trying to Transform America?
    Think about it.
