Michelle Obama First Public Figure on 'Better Homes and Gardens' Cover in 48 Years

"Better Homes and Gardens" hasn't had a public figure on its cover in 48 years.

With President Obama's approval rating plummeting along with the nation's employment picture, they must have figured now was the time to break with tradition and do an ultimate exposure puff piece on his wife:

Better Homes and Gardens will feature First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of its August issue - the first public figure to grace the magazine's cover in 48 years.

Obama will be the focus of an article on healthful eating for children. The issue will hit newsstands July 19.

Editors from the magazine, which is owned by Des Moines-based Meredith Corp., and the first lady co-hosted a picnic in May for D.C. fifth-graders. The magazine features photos of the picnic and an interview with Obama about her efforts to promote healthful habits.

Americans better prepare themselves for wall-to-wall Obama cover stories between now and November 2012 not just about him but also his family.

If you thought the media pulled out all the stops in 2008, you ain't seen nuttin' yet.

Millions of Americans no longer have “Homes and Gardens” due

to Barry’s economic wizardry.

The cover is racist.

Propaganda for Moochelle Antoinette: “Let them eat arugula, while we feast on Wagu Beef, lobster, Iranian caviar, hamburgers, fries and shakes.” and Emperor King Obamessiah: “Let them eat peas.”

Too bad they didn’t get a picture of her at The Shake Shack yesterday, where she ordered a 1700 calorie lunch.

Really, what people eat is their own damn business. But Michelle is not going to do me the courtesy, so she’ll get none from me.

This might have been a more appropriate picture considering the magazine's focus on the garden.

“Ideas and Inspiration to help American families eat right”

Maybe schools could teach some basic hygiene, diet and health facts instead of sex-ed or Marxist BS like they do. THEN people would not reach 25 or 30 something, raising kids and having NO clue how to shop for groceries or cook.

I see young women with children in the checkout and they are buying enough junk food, processed food, snak food, sugar, etc. to choke the whole stable. It is obvious that mom does NOT know about nutrition and CANNOT cook.

Spending perfectly good money on empty calories simply because you don’t know how to cook or are too lazy to cook is really stupid. You can buy a lot more groceries with the same amount of money than what you spend on junk food and processed/prepared stuff.

DIET Coke. Don’t you know the rules? Diet Coke with any meal makes the meal low calorie... ;)

I completely agree.

Amazingly, they managed to make Moochelle look attractive, and covered up the sheer girth of her hind end. That was no small feat... pun intended. :)

A hefty, bitter, Marxist woman who grew up in Chicago is going to tell me how to eat “fresh and healthy”?

Since neither my spouse nor I could cook, some the first purchases we made after our wedding were several pots and pans from the dimestore and a Better Homes and Garden cookbook. How times have changed. We learned how to cook, and we don’t need any propaganda. So long, Better Homes and Gardens.
