Sorry, Michelle—Super Bowl Menu Isn't Lo-Cal
National Journal ^ | February 6, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 02/06/2011 8:26:48 PM PST by Suvroc10

So much for first lady Michelle Obama’s healthy eating crusade. Sunday's Super Bowl menu at the White House includes bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza, and buffalo wings.

There will also be twice-baked potatoes, chips and dip, and ice cream. Green salad is available, but why bother when German potato salad is on the buffet?

I watched the game with my 5 yr old son. We had pizza and cupcakes and we both have smaller asses than the First Lady. Put together. Smaller. Not by a little either.

Don't count on it. She's watching her figure, you know.

Little know piece of trivia. This is one you can ask anyone in November or December and nobody will get the answer right.

What single day each year do Americans consume the most calories?

If you guessed "Today, Superbowl Sunday," you would be right. More calories consumed on SuperBowl Sunday than on Thanksgiving or Christmas.

This seems to typify these arrogant losers in the WH. If I have to listen to this fat assed first lady anymore about how I should be eating I will lose it.

You don't get an ass like that eating Brussels Sprouts and Wheat Germ.

I would guess it's because you can all that fun finger-food before, during, and after the game. That's a good four hours of solid, fun-filled party-eating and drinking. None (or not much) of the stress, anxiety, dysfunction, lost appetite, and general hassle of a traditional holiday meal.

No pierogies?

Even though I was rooting for GB this year, I think Pittsburgh’s official snack of kielbasa and pierogies beats brats and cheese hands down.

I’ll go even further: I think pierogies are perhaps the best food ever created by Man. Fried in butter and smothered in onions...OMG...I’m making my own mouth water with the thought of them...gotta go cook some up right now!

Regards,

Can someone please explain to me why Michelle Obama has set herself up as the arbiter of food and nutrition for Americans and their children?

What training in food or nutrition does this woman have? As far as I know, all she's done in her professional life is get a law degree and that doesn't have much to do with food or nutrition (except for selecting posh restaurants).

Now, if FLOTUS wants to talk about nutrition, food, and obesity — shouldn't she lead by example (shocking!) to demonstrate the importance? The first thing she needs to do is either embrace “healthy eating” or get liposuction on that enormous booty call she hauls around behind her. While she's at it, she needs to get a back brace to improve her posture, do a lot of Pilates exercises to get ripped abs and lose that gut, and have a boob job done.

Then, after FLOTUS gets her physical appearance in order — and get someone with good taste in clothing to dress her — we can talk about her plans for Americans food and nutrition.

Um, with all due respect I see and agree with your point about an overweight person not being “fit” to lecture people on what type, or what sized portions, of food they consume but I do fail to see how having good posture, better clothes, and especially bigger breasts come into play here.

Perhaps he is just reacting to our First Lady calling all of our American children fat.

‘_____come into play here.’

Maybe because we are hoping for - and deserve - a more elegant and dignified FLOTUS. (Can skip the bigger breasts thing).

And while we're at it, can a speech therapist get her to STOP with the 's-h-h-h-h -h' when pronouncing words that begin with 'st?' We've all heard it: "Shhhhhtrength, shhhhhtruggle, shhhhhtrive, shhhhhtrong, etc. etc. EEEEEKKK - my ears! Nails on a chalkboard.

Got carried away, somewhat. But, if you’re going to be the poster child of this “remake America into MY version of perfection” this is the opportunity to do a rehab job on yourself so you can lead by example.

A buffed and toned FLOTUS would be an inspiration, and a trophy wife, would she not? Not only do you talk the talk, but you walk the walk (and really look great doing it)! Think celebrity.

I don’t care if our First Lady isn’t buff and toned...nor does she need to be a trophy wife, although I can see how that would make the men feel proud. But yeah, we’re used to first ladies that exude a bit more class than MO. I just don’t like hypocrites and nosybodies and she seems like both with all her food reform bologna. Guess I’m kinda pissed when I read that she is having her people work with restaurant chains to offer smaller portions of food. You know they won’t reduce the price as well.

It would be great if we could give Michelle a hobby that would be harmless to the rest of America; those who don’t need Super Nanny trying to manage our lives because 300 million of us are too stupid to exist without here sage wisdom.

Michelle, sit down and shut up. Really, the country isn’t interested in what you think — there are much more serious problems afoot caused primarily by your husband.
