Michelle Obama’s feigned concern that nutrition labels on food packages make grocery shopping a difficult and trying experience for the moms of America, is no different than her televised dancing gig with giant anthropomorphic vegetables that kicked off the fourth anniversary of her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign on Jimmy Fallon’s all too accommodating The Tonight Show.
“In pitching new, improved nutrition labels at the White House on Thursday, first lady Michelle Obama tried to identify with women who do the grocery shopping for their families.” (CNS News, Feb. 28, 2014). “Her message was aimed at mothers who want to buy healthy food and depend on labels to help them do that:
“So there you stood, alone in some aisle in a store, the clock ticking away at the precious little time remaining to complete your weekly grocery shopping, and all you could do was scratch your head, confused and bewildered, and wonder, is there too much sugar in this product? Is 50 per cent of the daily allowance of riboflavin a good thing or a bad thing? And how on earth could this teeny little package contain five whole servings?”
It’s not too much sugar but too much government in supermarket products and almost everything else, Madam Obama.
Michelle Obama now coming on saccharine sweet about concerns for “confused” and “bewildered” Moms at the supermarket, is the same one who bans loving Moms from sending homemade lunches with their youngsters to school.
The best nutrition cops in the world are not politicians’ wives but the everyday Moms down at the supermarket.
“As consumers and as parents, we have a right to understand what’s in the food we’re feeding our families. Because that’s really the only way that we can make informed choices—by having clear, accurate information. And ultimately, that’s what today’s announcement is all about,” says Michelle.
Let’s get real: Michelle Obama’s expertise in ‘Nutrition’ is about as legitimate as her husband’s birth certificate.
Revolutionizing nutrition labels hardly matters when you’re doing it in a nation where your husband is deliberately cutting people off their critical health care.
Everything coming out of the White House is pure show. Michelle showing off her dancing moves with giant vegetable props; Barack Obama now arrogantly claiming that ObamaCare comes straight from God.
Michelle took the use of props to a new high today in a YouTube posted by Britain’s Daily Mail, showing the president and vice president of the US running in circles—inside—the White House.
Like all good little boys on boob tube ads, Barry and Joey return to the presidential office to hydrate with the tall glasses of water awaiting them on paper towel.
“A video has emerged of President Barack Obama and Joe Biden, his vice-president taking a quick run around the White House, in support of Michelle Obama’s’Let’s Move’ campaign designed to encourage people to get physically healthier and make changes in diet. (Daily Mail, Feb. 28, 2014)
“The video begins with Joe Biden entering the Presidential office asking ‘are you ready?’
“The President replies ‘Let’s do this’, and the two begin a run around the White House, followed by stretching and drinking a large glass of water each.
“They then promise each other ‘same time next week’ before heading back to work.”
Work is campaigning, vacationing and golfing to the water-drinking, White House joggers.
But the best thing about this video is that even after six hours posted on the humungous British newspaper, a total of 21 persons commented on it at the time of this writing.
The biggest un-typed comment of all: Folks are too busy running around trying to come up with the money to buy food for hungry jobless families and too busy trying to keep their healthcare to pay attention to the overbearing non-nutritionist Michelle and her absurd props, of both the vegetable and human kind.
