Move over food cartoon characters, here come the Obamas
Canada Free Press ^ | September 20, 2013 | Judi McLeod

Coming soon to a supermarket near you, jars of tofu and packaged bean sprouts plastered with pictures of Michelle and Barack Obama.

In Michelle Obama’s resurrected Let’s Move Campaign, a private session, organized by both the first lady’s office—and the president’s policy advisors—now positions Michelle Obama as the facilitator of debate urging food industry executives to increase their advertising of healthful products for kids. (Los Angeles Times).

With zero credentials as a schooled Nutritionist, Michelle Obama wants to drive cartoon characters promoting children’s’ food straight out of the public marketplace.

“You all know that our kids are like little sponges. They absorb whatever is around them,” she said. “But they don’t yet have the ability to question and analyze what they’re told.” (LA Times, Sept. 18, 2013).

Given the slaughter of innocents at the Navy Yard on Monday, perhaps Michelle Obama should be using more of her time to ban violent video games.

Perhaps it would be a good idea, too, for her to acknowledge that her husband Barack says it’s time to give sex education to children in kindergarten.

Neither Obama gives children of the womb a chance at life, surely making their credibility in childhood obesity highly questionable.

While her husband forces mandatory health care on their their parents and grandparents, Michelle Obama, having failed abysmally in the high school cafeteria, is going straight after the small fry.

Barack Obama frightens off adults with the specter of bureaucrat-run death panels, Michelle tries scaring off the cartoon characters of big, bad business, marketing unhealthy food for kids.

“The fact is that marketing nutritious foods to our kids isn’t just good for our kids’ health, it can be good for a company’s bottom line,” she said.

Since the local high school re-opened a couple of weeks ago, there is a steady stream of students escaping the cafeteria and heading up to the grocery store and fast-food joints for their lunches. And the litter is . . . well, they seem LESS environmentally conscious than I was at that age (too many years ago).

Great. The Idiot in Chief and his mascot, Moose-sheel, telling all of us what we need to eat. This is beginning to remind me of a nightmare I had once. I AM SO SICK OF THIS PHONY PRESIDENT AND HIS PHONY WIFE. PLEASE GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM, AND STAY THERE.

They actually might be quite a bit too socially liberal for most people on this forum. However, if micromanaging gov’t gets out of control here, you never know ...

ANd how is it physically possible to keep the food down if you are eating it out of something with Michelle Obama’s picture on it? I can’t fathom how you would do that even if the jar had 5 star restaurant quality food in it..

Sounds like the perfect Democrat voter.

Government cannot teach our children how to eat. Only parents—a man and a wife—can teach children to eat their spinach. We have too many children who throw out their free lunches because they have not been taught to eat the food they are given. The amount of money wasted because of the single parent family is money diverted from the real problem: the lack of a two parent family.

Mrs Obama wants us to believe she is serving a good cause by being the Government Mom that makes America eat its spinach. What a waste of time. She should know that the real problem is the lack of a man in the household. When Barack spends so much time on the golf course, we know there is a lack of a man in the Obama household.

Mrs Obama is too caught up in the feminist mindset that wants to minimize the role of the father and elevate the mother. She could do better. She could promote fatherhood and the need for women to get married before they bear children. And men and women should stay married for the benefit of the children. Then, when children refuse to eat their spinach, there will not only be a mother telling them to eat it, but the strong hand of the man there to back up a mom’s orders.
