Michelle Obama wants you to eat your peas and move
GOPUSA ^ | November 2, 2011 | Cain Burdeau (Associated Press)

Posted on 11/02/2011 2:50:44 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama led toddlers at a New Orleans daycare center in calisthenics and read them a book about a mouse that eats green peas, bidding to get America's children eating better and exercising more.

Obama stretched, jumped and marched in place before reading to the children who gathered in a classroom with their parents and teachers at the Royal Castle Child Development Center. The center focuses on preschoolers from families with moderate and low incomes.

Peas are actually very starchy. Not the best choice of vegetable. I don’t even count them as a veggie. I count them as a starch. Same with corn.

That’s funny, I want Michelle to move too. I want her to move back to Chicago. I want her to be so busy eating her own peas that I never have to hear from or about her again.

Just amazing about the hypocrisy of this rather rotund-in-the-bottom-half woman can get away with preaching to anybody about being heavy.

If she took a couple of full-length mirrors away from Obambi, she'd see how corpulent she is. Pathetic!

Unbelievable. Coercing citizens to quit smoking, eat right and exercise is now a legitimate gubmint function.

I love peas, but they're not really that beneficial, and not best for my husband, who is diabetic. I also love broccoli, which is much lower carb and very nutritious.

I does not appear that Mrs. O is very knowledgeable about nutrition and diet.

It’s like their obsession with ice cream!

Maybe their lobbyist friends produced a special strain of peas... to get us sicker and into ObamaCommieCare faster....

Here's the photo taken a fraction of second before her right foot hit...now you know the rest of the story.

She didn’t get those buns of hers by eating peas unless she ate the cans too.

But by gum ! Don't individuals attempt to GROW any sort of peas themselves. Only elites like Moochele are allowed.

Best tasting burger I ever had was from the milk cow that
broke my nose when I was getting her “plugged in”. Revenge
is a dish best seved hot with pickles, onion, and some
Botjees mustard!

This is the reason for Obamacare. It is quite simply to dictate to all of us what we are allowed to do and what we are allowed to eat. If you don’t adhere to the rules, you will be shot!

Shut up and take it.
