VAIL — First lady Michelle Obama enjoyed locally grown fare at a Vail restaurant Saturday night before hitting the slopes of Vail Mountain early Sunday.

Obama and her two daughters, 9-year-old Sasha and 12-year-old Malia — together with some family friends — are spending the Presidents Day holiday weekend in Vail. President Obama did not make the trip.

The first lady went to Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village on Saturday night, dining on a pickled pumpkin salad with arugula and a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms and sauteed kale.

“Yes, it's true, the first lady dined at our restaurant tonight and seemed to really enjoy it,” chef and owner Kelly Liken said.

The Obama entourage arrived at the Eagle County Regional Airport on Friday night. A motorcade of about a dozen vehicles drove from Gypsum into Vail and the underground garage of the Sebastian hotel.

I wonder how many of her wealthy friends she brought with her this time, on the taxpayer's dime.

I'm glad I'm not skiing at Vail. I'll bet they closed down the whole slope to everyone else while she was on the mountain. That's generally what the Obamas do.

Since she’s a pig at the trough, she’s a cannibal.

If she/they were just “suggesting” that you shouldn’t eat this way all the time, just in moderation (like they do),

and we didn’t understand the left’s propensity to make everything a matter of law/force,

it’d be a different story when she had great big greasy rack o’ ribs.

A person can work up a hell of an appetite telling other people how to live their lives all day.

I so admire those who dedicate their lives to helping others.

Other that the fact that she’s on vacation, at taxpayer expense, AGAIN, I don’t see a problem here...

She probably keeps a stash of junk food and a mini-salt lick hidden in the back of a dresser drawer, too.

Rush just referred to Michelle as the Nutritionist General.

LOL. Hell, if that's the diet she wants us all to be on, I'm all for it.

whne she makes it her issue (and demands taxpayer-funded programs) to pontificate on what you and your kids eat, then it becomes national news what she and her kids eat

Hypocrisy, thy name is Moochelle Robinson Sutoro Obama

The problem is obvious.
The left always uses the force of law to make you behave (eat) as they want you to,

and never comply themselves, because of their elitist attitude - THEY can eat in moderation, YOU can’t, and must be forced to eat salad and tofu.

She can pontificate all she wants about what “we” should eat, and I don’t pay any attention to it. So, my point is I don’t care what she eats-—if she’s digging her grave with her teeth—so be it. Leave her alone and let her get on with it—LOL!

Kelly L asked me to follow on twitter the other day. Now I guess I will. The ribs and kale sound great but not hot for the other stuff. Great trip for the kids but not sure about the stragglers.

Again, you miss the point.

_I_ don’t care what she eats either.

She just needs to shut her rib/ice cream/pie hole about what WE eat.

She cares about what you and I eat because it makes her mad when peasants consume food that she could need later.

Horrendous healthcare for the servants, Special HC for the elite.

Food rationing for the servants, Ribs for the Queen!

This simple act of dining out on ribs, just shows what a two-faced, lying bunch is inhabiting the White House!

Question. Do these people EVER stay home? You know, the White House? If this was Laura and George Bush would the press be yawning about it? When we get a republican in the White House again, if these MSN morons DARE to question vacations, etc. I would hope that the entire country would jump down their throats or whatever it would take to remind them of their limp wristed handling of the Obama administration.

According to their website these short ribs are bison. So, they might actually have been fairly lean.

Still, I chafe at someone with those hips lecturing the rest of us on obesity and lean eating. Did you see the thread on their steak and lobster, cake and ice cream blowout the other night?
