Michael Tomasky: More Fat, Dumb Kids Means More Republican Voters
NewsBusters ^ | May 28, 2014 | By Jackie Seal

Posted on 05/29/2014 2:00:46 PM PDT by kingattax

Republicans want America's kids to be fat so they’ll grow up to be Republican voters! At least that's the fatuous argument from the Daily Beast's Michael Tomasky in a May 28 column, "Republicans for More Fat Kids."

Tomasky went on a blistering rant blasting an amendment offered by congressional Republicans which would simply delay the requirements for Michelle Obama’s school lunch program initiative. But this is not solely the concern of Republicans on the Hill. As NewsBusters noted last week, 321 schools from 41 states -- including, yes, states which strongly supported President Obama -- have already opted out of the program.

But Tomasky's readers won’t be faced with the facts surrounding Republican opposition. Instead, they are told that Republican opposition has nothing to do with concerns about the unrealistic standards of the lunch program, but everything to do with their “hatred of her [Michelle Obama’s] husband.”

This is the theme for virtually every left-wing attack on the Republicans when they dare to disagree. The opposition is either fueled by racism, or in this case, hatred for the nation's chief executive. Tomasky’s comments aren’t all that surprising. He’s been known to call Republicans ‘racist’and ‘bat-sh*t crazy.'

Seems like a good time to show a Democrat's son, convicted tire-slasher Supreme Solar Allah posing with Democrat Barack Hussein Obama

Michael Tomasky: More Fat, Dumb Kids Means More Republican Voters

Another impressive display of dispassionate liberal logic.

How can we possibly prevail against such wits?

Is it possible for leftists to make an argument which doesn't involve them projecting their own personal problems on to Republicans?

Why argue facts when you can just lie?

yup. easiest way to increase their voting block

well, besides shipping them up from south America and blessing them with citizenship for breaking the law (what do we get if we don’t pay speeding tickets or taxes for years?)

According to the CDC, the #1 demographic of the fattest of the fatty-fats are middle aged black women.

I wonder why Moochie doesn’t target their behavior?

I thought kids becoming fatter and dumber would turn them racist. My mistake.

Importantly, that is Michelle “Lemongrab” Obama.

Running around with her arms waving, screeching out “UNACCEPTABLE! UNACCEPTABLE!”

She knows they are a lost cause and they would tell her where to go.
It’s all about grabbing and controlling the youth.
