Michelle Obama takes credit for 'cultural shift' in US eating habits (Video)
The Hill ^

Posted on 09/07/2013 10:33:49 AM PDT by matt04

Michelle Obama credited her anti-obesity program with bringing about a "cultural shift" in the way Americans eat.

"Make no mistake about it. We are changing the conversation in this country. We are creating a cultural shift on how we live and eat. And our efforts are having an impact on our children's lives." The first lady touted the success of her Let's Move anti-obesity program during a visit on Friday to Orr Elementary School in Washington, D.C.

Obama said when she first began her signature initiative, she couldn't imagine a time when fast-food commercials advertised for breakfast sandwiches made with egg whites. And she praised restaurants like Red Lobster and Olive Garden for offering healthy choices.

Obama also reiterated an August study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that showed 19 states and territories saw obesity rates decline among low-income preschoolers.

But the first lady warned there was a still a "long way to go in solving this problem."

“Right now, we’re truly at a pivotal moment – a tipping point when the message is just starting to break through, when new habits are just beginning to take hold, and we’re seeing the very first glimmer of the kind of transformational change that we’re capable of making in this country."

Too bad that since her hubby became president noone can afford to eat there.

Yep, and once they've been out there long enough to get some statistics, they'll be off the menu.

What a dumb phrase.

And I made no mistake about making that statement.

The concept of fast-food restaurants offering “healthy choices” did not begin with Moochelle; it has been going on for years.

It’s not just Moochelle’s big butt, it’s her clothes that set her apart. Although she’s often been praised (by morons) for her supposedly trend-setting fashion sense, Moochelle’s ugly outfit is put to shame by the classy dresses worn by the other two women.

Maybe she could get a McLean to show how customers want healthy choices. Oh wait, no one bought it and it only lasted a few years. By bad.

Fashion setter, she certainly is - now we have to look at a lot of fat arms due to the sleeveless dresses - very few look good in that fashion — Michelle draws more attention to herself ‘cuz she has muscles and Barry doesn’t. Boo hoo.

If two narcissists — intent on taking credit for everything good and accepting no responsibility for anything bad — marry each other, can they be President?

She praised Red Lobster and Olive Garden, two companies that are cutting workers’ hours because of obamacare.

It’s obvious these two would find each other. They’re both narcissists to the core.

Since most Americans can’t afford to eat due to 0bama’s brilliant handling of turning a recession into a depression. Credit goes to her husband not her.
