Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move’ campaign fails miserably
Daily Caller ^ | 01/09/2014 | Eric Owens

Posted on 01/10/2014 11:52:37 AM PST by 12th_Monkey

The healthy school lunches touted by Michelle Obama have not been popular. (RELATED: Kentucky students to first lady Michelle Obama: Your food ‘tastes like vomit’)

The complex body of meal regulations implemented by the Department of Agriculture under the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010″ has long been a signature issue for the first lady—at least until just last week when the USDA permanently abandoned the act’s ironic limitations on kids’ caloric intake of protein and carbohydrates.

Michelle Obama’s other signature issue — the Let’s Move! campaign to combat childhood obesity — also looks to be rapidly heading to the ash heap of history.

The Let’s Move! campaign was announced in 2010. Its ambitious goal: to solve the obesity problem in America within a generation.

So far, things aren’t going well. The latest data on kid fitness suggests that 3 in 4 kids aged 12 to 15 fail to meet the federal government’s minimum recommendations of an at least an hour of vigorous activity each day, reports an Associated Press at WNYW.

The data comes from a 2012 National Youth Fitness Survey of about 800 teens and preteens. The kids self-reported their own physical activity. They also submitted to physical exams.

Federal researchers would not express disappointment in a statistic showing that fully 75 percent of American kids don’t do a bare minimum of exercise each day.

“There’s always room for improvement,” said Tala Fakhouri, an optimistic scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who was the lead author of the study.

At least one unflattering picture accompanies the story. I do not support Moochelle as "First Mommy", she can KMWA!

A good start on solving child obesity is doing away with EBT cards.

Paula Deen:

She said: ‘I did a show with Michelle and I just loved being with her.
‘She probably ate more than any other guest I’ve ever had on the show.
‘She kept eating even during commercials.’

Paula said: ‘You know what their favorite foods are — it’s hot wings, you know, those kinds of foods that are not necessarily top-of-the-list healthy foods, so she’s no different than the rest of us.
‘We love those kinds of foods, we just know that we can’t eat them everyday.’

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2047901/Paula-Deen-Michelle-Obama-ate-guest-Ive-show.html

Kind of suspicious that a few years down the road Deen was accused of racism and lost millions in endorsements. Kind of funny huh???

Fleeced the country and

re: A good start on solving child obesity is doing away with EBT cards.

Absolutely true. If she was really serious about cutting childhood obesity and obesity for the rest the very least she could do is mandate (isn't that how the Obama’s do everything?) that EBT cards could only be used to buy real foods- not candy, chips, sugared cereal, soda, fast food, etc. But that would rile the democrat base. Not going to happen.

And she & hubby have also managed to move millions of Americans from their jobs to sitting on their butts at home. That certainly needs to be counted in the success column for 2 people who hate our country.

I figure they duped about 7%.

About 20% voted for Obama because of his black skin.

Another 15% voted for him to get free stuff.

About 10% voted for him because they will vote for anyone who runs as a democrat.

According to Paula Deen, she does. When Michelle guested on Paula's show, Paula said Michelle really scarfed down the food, even when the cameras weren't rolling. Paula said she never saw anybody eat so much.

I thought the whole idea behind the “Let’s Move” was to soften her true image as a bomb-throwing Bolshevik. This was preaching to choir from the get-go. The supposed beneficiaries of the program won’t listen to her (or anyone else).
