Michelle Obama’s “Civilian” Act Is Hard To Swallow

Pages: 1 2

As I reported earlier this month, Mrs. Obama’s signature program (now run by Obama’s best golfing buddy Dr. Eric Whitaker) just received a $6 million grant from an Obamacare agency with zero independent oversight. Taste the boodle.

Just a humble private mom raising her two daughters while Dad does all that hardball politics stuff? Pshaw. Let’s not forget that Mrs. Obama leveraged her hubby’s Senate victory to snag a lucrative seat on the corporate board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. despite having zero experience in the industry.

When her garden gloves are off, her political boxing gloves are on. Mrs. O famously has castigated other Americans’ choices in how they earn theirmoney. She used her East Wing power to push Obamacare. She has exploited the bully pulpit to restrict food advertisers’ speech. She has served the SEIU’s legislative agenda of increasing the welfare state and padding membership rolls with more government school workers under the guise of fighting child obesity.

And she has relied on questionable science to declare war on so-called “food deserts” in poor neighborhoods where she claims only fast food is available. But according to two major peer-reviewed and published studies: 1) poor neighborhoods had nearly twice the number of supermarkets and large-scale grocers per square mile as wealthier neighborhoods, and 2) there is no correlation between what students in a large-scale California survey ate, what they weighed and what kinds of food they ate within the immediate radius of their homes.

While she denies a Nanny State agenda, Mrs. Obama successfully has strong-armed several major restaurant chains into redesigning their menus to her exacting healthful standards. One of those targets is Darden Restaurants, which operates Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants across the country. At a time when most food service providers are struggling under the weight of increased taxes, health care mandates and regulations, Darden Restaurants just happens to be one of the few and fortunate businesses to obtain one of those coveted Obamacare waivers.

When Michelle Obama stops using her public office to push new Big Government power grabs and redistribute wealth to her cronies (flashback: Chicago Obama-lympics), stoke racial grievances, and meddle in Obama administration personnel decisions that lead to whistleblower firings (ask her about former AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin), I’ll leave her alone.

Until then, someone’s got to deliver FLOTUS her just deserts.

    It is pretty gross how a rep. first lady would be treated compared to this woman…..She spends our money like there is no tomorrow….If she is a private mom and just a lil innocent home maker, why does she need so many SS agents to follow her around….and 2 dozen assistants to cater to HER every whim….Does she actually think she is our Queen Bee, and the rest of the USA is just the workers…..I cannot even look at her picture without getting ill

      Mrs. Obama deserves all of the same accommodations and protection every other First Lady has enjoyed. Travel, secret service, respect, and more. Why is it suddenly we are concerned about this First families costs? They have spent far less then their predecessors. Laura was out peddling her books, and pushing education and literacy – all at tax payer expense and with the same number of secret service taking care of her security. Were we upset about that? Stop being so hypocritical.

        For one thing education and literacy are benefits to liberty not infringements on liberty. And I seriously doubt that Mrs. Bush spent more taxpayer money vacationing.

        You are the only hypocrite here, madam. George W. Bush once played golf at his own TX estate, without burdening us, taxpayers, and media ripped him apart for this. Your beloved Obama and his family have burdened the public treasury for millions of dollars with their endless fancy and opulent trips to Spain, France, Martha's Vineyard and Hawaii, to mention just a few destinations. Why does his wife need a staff of over forty assistants and secretaries? I am sure you libs can come up with some not-so-convincing explanation, which would not make much sense to hard-working Americans trying to stay afloat. And don't forget the presidential dog who had to be flown to the Commander-In-Chief's children on the jet because they missed him. You paid for that trip. Their annual charitable donations should be made public. Let the world see how much a socialist is willing to spread his own wealth to the poor and needy.

    I hope Romney jumps on the waiver theme. How is it that the "friends" of the POTUS are granted exemptions from the Healthcare mandate? He can make political noise about the cronyism of both The President and the First Lady from their Chicago days. I understand there were lucrative posts afforded her after he (as a State Senator) allotted grant monies to a hospital, and many similar incidents of corrupted political activities. Romney should point them ALL out.
    When Romney wins, maybe then I can, on a stretch, relate to her as when she said “finally, I can be proud of my country.”

    This has nothing to do with her book but she is one very ugly Black woman. I am not talking about she being smug and elite. I mean physically she is just not very attractive. Not one little bit. She also has no class and cannot hold a candle to Laura Bush or any other first Lady except Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton is certainly no peach either.

  • Lady_Dr

    A person can be unattractive, and lack class and style but if they have money there is a lot that can be done to conceal these defects. But MO is a low-life, Chicago thug like her husband and instead of hiring people in the know who could have helped them then hired people just like themselves e.g. Valerie Jarrett. MO wardrobe and the protocol decisions are major cases in point – yet, Washington is full of people who could have made a difference there. But the Obamas are arrogant Chicago thugs who don't care or are too clueless to realize that they are an embarrasment to the DNC and to the country.

  • Norma

    My real concern is how many people will buy into what she says and not remember what she said about the first time she said finally I am proud of my country. Hmmm……..I wonder why she stayed here instead of living in some other country.

    And when Commandante Sub-Zero and FLO (_________ – fill in the blank for the country as both do as if for some other country) finally float on out of office (2012 or 2016), both will make even more dinero. At least we won't have to see and hear about their indulgences every day. Or will we (as in a lamestream media that can't/won't let them go)?

    She was at "The Biggest Loser"? Hey, that's exactly where she needs to be.. together with her hubby, the Divider in Chief. They ARE the biggest loser! And I hope that she sells Millions of her book, then she has enough money to reimburse we the people for her vacations and other insane expenses. Sounds like a plan… ok, just dreaming
