The "Kids Meal Presidency": From WWOD to What CAN Obama Do?
Boston Herald ^ | December 7, 2010 | Michael Graham

Two years ago, the wristband read WWOD? “What Would Obama Do?” Now it’s “What Can Obama Do?”

Since his election, Barack Obama has gone from “global political Messiah” to “total White House mess.”

It’s so bad that Obama-friendly reporter Mark Halperin in the Obama-friendly Time Magazine describes it this way:

“Liberals believe he is an overcompromising wimp. The business community considers Obama ignorant about markets at best, a socialist at worst. . . The media, after aiding and abetting his ride to the White House, now see the president as incompetent and overwhelmed. The independents and Republicans who backed him for office currently feel he is too liberal and too weak to do the job.”

Other than that, he rocks!

Obama “fixed” unemployment, and now it’s back up to 9.8 percent. He “fixed” Washington, and suffered the worst Democratic congressional defeat in a century. He “fixed” our foreign policy, and Iran’s going nuclear, North Korea’s shooting at the South, and he flew all the way to Afghanistan and still couldn’t get President Hamid Karzai to take a meeting.

But the guy who can’t stop one Internet jerk from dumping America’s secret documents across the globe finally has an issue he’s ready to handle:

Your kids’ bake sales.

“A child nutrition bill on its way to President Barack Obama - and championed by the first lady - gives the government power to limit school bake sales and other fundraisers,” the Associated Press reports.

“The legislation, part of first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to stem childhood obesity. . . directs the Agriculture Department to write guidelines to make those meals healthier.” That includes vending machines and bake sales, which were included at the request of fringe activist groups. “The language is broad enough that a president’s administration could even...

I’ve never seen someone fall so far so fast. Signing a bill restricting public school bake sales. Absolutely incredible.

“I think everyone will agree. My good friend Al “Tommy Flanagan” Gore agrees and he tells me that all the Scientists and Nutritionists are in agreement that public school bake sales are the biggest challange our nation has ever faced.

911 seems trivial in light of the devastating consequences of a child possibly gaining upwards of 2 pounds from eating the extremely dangerous food sold at a bake sale.

Man-made Global Warming has been exposed as a hoax over and over again, but I pledge not to give up the fight. Let me be clear, I will fight even harder to keep the children away from brownies and homemade cakes!

The economy is rumored to be important to people. And it is about number 32 on my list and I will grudgingly address it since it may give me a slim chance at reelection if the economy improves before 2012. At this time I will take full responsibility and credit for any improvement. If things get worse it will be George Bush's fault, of course.
But I ask you, fellow Americans, what is more important than having the Federal government regulate a bake sale?
Nothing that I can think of!”
