Michelle Obama on Thursday turned her annual garden harvest into a showcase for healthier school lunch standards and pledged to fight until the bitter end to keep them in place.
The House is soon to vote on a bill that would allow some schools to opt out of new federal requirements that school lunches include more whole grains, fruits and vegetables. The White House has threatened to veto the measure.

It WILL be bitter, Mooch....it WILL be bitter!!!
If these are the standards that she would fight for, then why don’t they apply to food stamps??
“Her annual garden harvest”? We’re a zone south of DC, and all we’ve harvested so far is a good crop of mixed lettuces and one Roma tomato. A cardinal ate the other tomato.
Kids will eat broccoli and cauliflower daily or go to jail!
Says the Wookie.
Our schoolchildren are STARVING being forced to eat what Moochrlle dictates! The fight has just begun!
What First “Lady?”
Man don’t they still feed the clergy?
Wonderful language for a war time first lady, and as the enemy is closing in on Iraq's capital, and Putin is reconquering Europe, and China moves in the Pacific, and America is in global retreat.
Times are tough all over. At least none of us had to eat stinging nettles this spring ... the lettuces can handle a lot of cold weather.
Can’t wait until her bitter end
She should work on the menu at her kids’ private school first then come for the rest of us.
Sheesh....Obama doesn't even listen to her.
moochelle is actually the First Manlady.
Sad times indeed!
I feel ya. Stupid mocking birds ate all my strawberries. I’d turn them into corpses but they are the state bird. Tomatoes are a pain to grow. I’m doing native tomatoes, aka ground cherries, native cucumbers, and lots of hibiscus.
that garden is likely full of plants that were half grown indoors under artificial light cycles to get early yields and to make it look like her fat arse knows what she is doing.
The response to all of Michelle’s hysteria should be a major boycott of the School Feeding program with parents finally taking responsibility for their own kids’ nutrition. Oh and by the way - Bite me, Michelle!!! See what real bitterness tastes like.
