First Lady Michelle Obama visited the headquarters of the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington Tuesday. She devoted much of her talk to "the growing threat of obesity, particularly childhood obesity" in the United States, and she touted HHS's recently-announced plan to spend $373 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on plans to, among other things, improve the healthfulness of foods in vending machines.

Ironic cause for the wookie to lecture us on, given the junk that’s accumulated in her trunk since inauguration day and both the obamas gushing over the WH pie, waffles and grits

You put the money in and someone else chooses the snack they'll get.

You put the money in and it just goes immediately on to someone’s EBT card.

Vending machines full of food that no one wants to buy. Yeah, that’ll help stimulate the economy.

Anyone still wonder why Michelle didn’t want want pictures of herself scarfing down a big cheeseburger and fries this summer?

I do not want this woman lecturing me about the threat of obesity. I do not want this woman lobbying for $373M of OUR money to put better snacks in vending machines. Geeze!

“Government in a Vending Machine” is NOT Aerosmith’s follow-up to “Love in an Elevator.”

“...HHS’s recently-announced plan to spend $373 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on plans to, among other things, improve the healthfulness of foods in vending machines.”

During the Great Depression, government stimulus money employed poor citizens to build Hoover Dam, the Golden Gate Bridge and many other useful projects. Omama’s stimulus money puts yogurt into school vending machines. Where is the vision of greatness in Omama land?

The Obama Big Spenders love to spend our tax money without much discipline.

Really, Michelle? The way your husband is trashing the economy, we’ll all be REAL skinny, REAL soon.

Except you Elitists, of course. Have another side of designer beef, LOL!

That’ll be $373 Million dollars, please.
