Skip to comments.Doctors group calls on Obama to stop eating junk food in public
Posted on 05/09/2012 10:48:13 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
A healthcare advocacy group run by physicians is preparing to file a petition calling on President Obama to stop eating hamburgers, hot dogs and other unhealthy foods before cameras.
"As role model to millions of Americans, the president has a responsibility to watch what he eats in public," said Susan Levin, nutrition education director with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
Obama's occasional stops at Washington, D.C.-area burger joints always receive press attention.
He famously treated staff to lunch at Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill in August 2011.
A year before that, he and then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev grabbed food at Ray's Hell Burger in Arlington, Va.
And in March, during a visit to Ohio with British Prime Minister David Cameron, he ate hot dogs while watching college basketball.
Levin said in a statement that processed meats like hot dogs "kill more Americans every year than tobacco does, and they cost taxpayers billions of dollars in healthcare."

How about they call on him to stop socializing medicine, while they are at it?
“A healthcare advocacy group run by physicians is preparing to file a petition calling on President Obama to stop eating hamburgers, hot dogs and other unhealthy foods before cameras.”
Give the guy a break, at least he’s not eating dog food! / sarc
Interesting he stuffs his face with junk food while his wife plants lettuce and demands everyone exercise more.
Two faced hypocrites.
“Interesting he stuffs his face with junk food while his wife plants lettuce and demands everyone exercise more.”
Agreed except I doubt Michelle actually planted the lettuce. Gardening is menial labor, and the queen won’t want to get her hands dirty.
Shouldn’t they also be trying to stop the actors in the commercials from eating hamburgers, hot dogs, etc?
Ah, this must be a thinly-veiled campaign ad to show us that Hussein’s face shown eating (fast?) food is a more powerful ad than any Burger King/McDonalds commercial actor in the world!
And not going the racial route here, but the first thing I thought of when I saw those long, dangly arms wrapped around the kids and the bent knees...orangutang!
Lord have mercy, how’s she even get them britches on
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
(Ooh, that’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout right there, honey)
Thanks to Trace Adkins.
Which one is the Clydesdale?
“As role model to millions of Americans, the president...”
Sady, that’s true to the 52% of America’s moron/idiots/schmucks who voted for 0bummer, in 2008. I still don’t give the majority here very much credit for any discernible brainmatter.
Silly doctors. Do as 0 says, not as he does.
She’s an animal. Plain and simple.
A wagyu steak dinner comprises meat, vegetables, rolls made of grains, and potatoes.
The difference: the first is affordable by everyone — only the 1% can afford the latter (Obama gets courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer; but, he could also afford to pay for them.)
Hamburgers are not junk food. This is blatant class warfare! (Dems against the poor.)
That *thing* has its own zipcode! LOL.
He should stop eating junk food...and stick with AKC registered breeds of dog meat.
She is a yeti.
Thank God they have In n Out in Las Vegas!
Hamburgers are a balanced meal. Skip the soda and fries.
Sweetened drinks are a toxin. They lead to an insulin rush that inflames from the inside.
If zero was drinking these at a game, then I would be on the bandwagon with the OP.
Exactly. Not a damn thing wrong, nutrition wise, eating a hamburger. There is a LOT wrong with the busybody medical commnunity trying to nanny state our freedoms away.
Caution: Wide Load Ahead.
-—Hamburgers are a balanced meal. Skip the soda and fries——
Yup. If they could invent a low-carb roll, it would be perfect.
It was thanks to him I found out about Ray’s Hell Burger. Why take away the only thing he is good for?
Why don’t healthcare advocacy groups just mind their own f’n business?
And to think that black clothing is slimming.....
Like Salma Hayek: Burger King...evil!
Help me out, I’m trying to remember the basic food groups ...
Seems to me I’m missing one. Milkshakes?
