What Michelle Obama Will Do With Another Four Years

Asked by Parade magazine, “What do you hope to accomplish in your second term?” First Lady Michelle Obama said she wants to “impact the nature of food in grocery stores” with the aim of cutting sugar, fat and salt.

Are the Marie Antoinette jokes even jokes now?

Laura Bush quaintly focused on literacy. Michelle Obama is pathologically obsessed with the food in other people’s mouths.

The good news is that lovers of sugar, fat, salt and having a job that allows them to buy food with these things in them, have a fairly clear choice in this election. And those who are obsessed with regimenting and controlling what other people eat also have a choice. At least until Bloomberg run for office in 2016 on the “No Labels Anywhere Except on Food” ticket.

We can either have an administration that will make it possible for people to afford to buy the food that they want to eat or we can elect an administration that will make sure that everyone has less money and less filling food.

    Big Gubmint doesn't have any business meddling in a good bit of what it already has its fingers in.

    Oh come on…."pathologically obsessed with the food in other people’s mouths?" Childhood obesity is one of our country's major health concerns Perhaps Mrs. Obama's time would be better spent as Nancy Reagan's was when she was first lady – "pathologically obsessed" with the china on the White House table. food in other people’s mouths.

      Her own china is a legitimate province of the First Lady. Other people's china isn't.

      One of the nation's major health concerns is Busybodism.

        Wow – your language is hilarious. china is a "legitimate province?" It's dishes & plates, for crying out loud. Also, since it appears that you're calling me a "busybody" & possibly a part of the nation's major health concerns, then I guess that you're right there along with me. I just dabble in this stuff…it appears to be the all-consuming existence of your life here on earth.

      Buying china (with the assistance of private donors) to replace incomplete sets is NOT pathological.

      Harassing a 16-year-old Olympian about her food choices for a treat (an Egg McMuffin) IS.

      Does that help clear your confusion up?

      • Bonnie

        I didn't realize that I was confused….but I think that you may be. Here we go again with the extreme language…"harrassing" an Olympian???? I saw the footage – Mrs. Obama made a comment but it was nothing close to harassment.

          Criticizing a teen about her food choices IS harassment – many girls are quite self-conscious about their weight – particularly gymnasts. Anorexia is all too common among these athletes.

          Would it be considered "harassment" if I confronted Mrs. Obama and said "you really shouldn't eat such unhealthy food, even occasionally". Would she not take it as an implied criticism about her rather large hips and behind?

          You know you'd be one of the first to condemn me for mentioning her food choices.

    And you're mistaken about "those who are obsessed with regimenting and controlling" – those would be the Republicans…not the Democrats. I think that I represent a "typical Obama voter" but I take great offense to your statement that I am "not acting as an American, but as a representative of an entitled group." Sorry – you're off the mark again – the Republican party is the group "looking to secure and expand entitlements at the expense and the detriment of the country at large."

    And, please, don't insult our intellegence with your absurd statement that "There is not a single Obama voter anywhere in the land who believes that another four years of him will make this country better."….There are millions of us who do believe exactly that….and our voices will be heard on Election Day.

      ".There are millions of us who do believe exactly that….and our voices will be heard on Election Day. "

      Along with those of UFO enthusiasts.

      You are a typical Obama voter all right.

      And that is all I have to say about that…

    Michelle's weight is estimated to be 170 lbs (from Wiki Answers).
    Better cut down on all those organic french fries, lady. Look after your own weight and stop being obsessed about ours.
