First Lady: 'Have pie! Eat the dressing!'

First Lady: 'Have pie! Eat the dressing!' By Elise Viebeck - 11/27/10 11:36 AM ET

First Lady Michelle Obama encouraged American families to enjoy their food over the holiday weekend and not to worry about "how much you eat."

Obama, who is spearheading a nationwide campaign against childhood obesity, explained to 20/20 host Barbara Walters that "this is the time" to let go a bit.

"I would urge people to use this time to come together, as families and community, and don't take it for granted. Be kind to each other and laugh a little bit. And don't worry about how much you eat. Just enjoy it," she said.

She later added, "Have pie! Eat the dressing!" when prompted to explain her comment.

The wide-ranging interview also included a discussion of Obama's campaign, dubbed "Let's Move," which focuses on healthy eating among schoolchildren.

"You know, our goal is ambitious but simple," Obama said. "We want to end the epidemic in a generation. We're really aiming at children born today, because our goal is that if we begin shaping habits and shaping the conversation and providing information to parents and teachers and engaging all of our leaders in this conversation, that we'll change the habits of young people today."

The First Lady has faced criticism from Republicans, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, for advocating what they characterize as government-overreach.

"A government has a role to play in this issue, as does every other sector," Obama rebutted in the interview. "And we reached out and engaged the grocery store manufacturers and the restaurateurs. We brought in the mayors and governors of states and towns. We're calling on faith-based community. There is no constituency that should be excluded from this call to action for our kids."

Both Obama and President Obama commented in another portion of the discussion that they both exercise to relieve stress.

The interview aired Friday.

After the Obamas are gone I will never be able to use the word “community” again.

Over used, abuse and contorted, this word has become a cliche similar to his use of “Let me be real clear” right before he says something convoluted and with politically correct newspeak.

"A government has a role to play in this issue, as does every other sector,"

And hence lies the difference between the socialists and the real Americans. We don't believe the government has a place in every sector of our lives. Mind your own business Mooshell.

How benevolent of Her Majesty.

She will tell us what to eat year round, but on holidays she will issue a decree freeing her subjects for just one day from the responsibility to keep a healthy collective. Thank you Queen Michelle I shall enjoy my pie and dressing by virtue of your good graces!

I'm so sick of hearing about the benefits of certain foods everyday....It's all marketing.

Bread is bad, milk is bad, butter is bad, meat is bad....

If everything is so bad, how come the meat and potato folks like my mom and dad lived to 90...and the olive oil, spaghetti crowd died at 68.

Michelle making the prerequisite 'first lady' gesture to the nation. Unfortunately, this child health ploy has been used many times and piggy backs programs already enacted by law and are in use.

What in the heck difference does it make what the kids are like in this country in another few years? It’s not going to be the same country and there will be plenty of other things to be worried about, other than whether kids (or any of us) are too fat. Thanks to the folks who think we can’t live without their two cents!

This is what is scary about the Obamas! They want to indoctrinate the children not with just this obesity program but with socialism at its core!

Moochie has gained 20 to 30 lbs. since living in our White House. Her younger daughter is decidedly overweight.

If she began with her own family she might have a bit more credibility.

As for the big dummy, every time we see him he is stuffing his face with an ice cream cone. And word is they have a personal chef in the White House.

” laugh a little bit. “

Not a lot..just a little.

Apparently Mooch is not concerned with the diet of her family, just the rest of us.
She routinely takes her girls for hamburgers and shakes and high fat foods.
http://obamafoodorama.blogspot.com/ unwittingly
documents the excesses.

Just a small sampling of the many restaurant high fat outings we pay for.

“..the mother-daughter pair sampled burgers, fries, onion rings, and a variety of hand-spun shakes—including cocoa, vanilla, toasted marshmallow and Milky Way Malt. “
http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/news/offbeat/080609_michelle_malia_obama_visit_good_stuff_eatery

“I t was Mrs. Obama’s second visit to We The Pizza; pizzerias seem to be a frequent choice when she’s out with the girls.
During their visit to Los Angeles in June,
Mrs. Obama and the girls dined at Pizzeria Mozza;
while touring New York in April,
they visited Grimaldi’s pizzeria.

http://obamafoodorama.blogspot.com/2010/10/michelle-obama-daughters-visit-dcs-we.html

” The girls, who have just kicked off summer vacation from the private Sidwell Friends school, ate hot dogs with ketchup
while their mother had a mild Polish sausage with mustard, grilled onions and jalapenos, according to Pink. “
http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jun/16/local/la-me-0616-michelle-in-la-20100616/2

In Maine this past summer :
“ Today’s chow highlights included an ice cream run to Mt. Desert Island Ice Cream ..”
A few hours later they had this :
“.. The President and Mrs. Obama had lobster, and Malia and Sasha had fried shrimp baskets, according to Currier,
and the girls shared a slice of blueberry pie.”

No, she isn’t. She is nine and about to hit puberty.
You are falling for the crap they are passing out.

I looked at Christmas pictures of my older daughter. In 2009, she looked just like that little girl. Today she is 5’7” and slim.

Cut the kid a break.

Mooch-elle is proclaiming social instruction, and capping it with a permission slip to eat desert.

Even (ugh) Hillary Rodham is not this much of an imperious overlord.

I don’t know what makes me laugh more: the fact that Michelle thinks anyone is paying attention to what she says about diet; or that there are some idiots out there who are so lost that they actually care what she says about what to eat.
