Via White House Dossier: Let’s Stop! Michelle Abandons “Let’s Move” Campaign Excerpt:
Michelle’s exit from the Let’s Move campaign coincided with growing reports and a widely circulated satirical video alleging that the new food guidelines were leaving children hungry. The bad publicity clashed with President Obama’s efforts to stir support among young voters for his candidacy. Many of Obama’s campaign events were held at high schools – presumably among students who might have been attending rallies on relatively empty stomachs.
Anyone who has followed my blog for the last few years knows my abject disdain for the First Hamburglar and her mythological Food Deserts. I doubt she’s totally dropped ‘Let’s Move’ bit and fully expect to see her focus become an all out assault on restaurants and food sellers.
Before anyone gets their panties is in a twist and screams, “What do you have against healthy eating!? You must want kids to be fat and I bet you punch kittens too!”, let me explain something: I am all for healthy eating, raising awareness and educational drives — but forcing businesses to become extensions of a Liberal Nanny state is nothing more than political correctness in physical form. Now hear this, Mrs. Obama — I will decide what I put in my body or what my kids eat. Period. Perhaps you should do the same.
Checking my Mooch Crystal Boob Belt Ball, I predict:
A push at restaurants for smaller portions (but they will charge us the same anyway), lowered salt in food, lowered fat in food, limits on soda. She’s already made it happen at Disney World, strong armed the Darden food chain and bullied McDonald’s… why not expand?
Food sellers like grocery stores and big box clubs offering groceries (Wal-Mart, Target etc) will get squeezed too. Watch her demand limiting various junk foods, cookies, chips and other goodies. This of course cuts into the bottom line of the store and of the manufacturers of such items, which in turn costs you and I more at the stores *allowed* to carry them or who defy The High Priestess of the Food Desert.
Not to be left out: Farms. Her husband has already caused some havoc there and I am sure FLOTUS is up to the task of finishing the job. Guns schmunz. Control the food, control the populace. (Also Read: Obama Admin announces “Rural Council” )
