Get Ready To See Michelle Obama's Face Plastered All Over Your Local Subway Sandwich Shop
Tea Party Command Center Blog ^ | January 23, 2014 | Linda Hahn

Posted on 01/28/2014 6:59:42 AM PST by Din Maker

If you thought you could simply enjoy your Subway sandwich without partisan politics, you thought wrong. Michelle Obama’s face is about to invade every one of their restaurants.

The first lady was expected to announce Thursday that the Subway sandwich chain will spend $41 million over three years to encourage finicky young eaters to eat more food that comes out of the ground or grows on trees. The announcement was being made at a Subway shop near the White House.

Subway will only offer a kids’ menu that mirrors federal standards for school lunches. That includes offering apples on the side and low-fat or nonfat plain milk or water as a default beverage. First off, who wants to have the First Lady’s face all over advertisements of a sub shop anyway? Regardless of whether it’s Michelle Obama, Laura or Barbara Bush, it’s a cheesy and questionable advertising strategy in that it is painfully obvious that it will cause at least some level of controversy.

I don't know if this has been substantiated or not. I received an e-mail this morning with a link to register a complaint to Subway Corporation. The following is what the e-mail said:

If you want to let them know how you feel about this, please send them a note on their website's Customer Service link:

So, has the position of First Lady of the US turning into a commercial product hawker? No wonder the world is losing respect for the USA.

Advertising generally seeks to increase the number of customers. Why would a company adopt advertising that will drive away a good portion of its customers?

Is the head of Subway some hardcore Democrat who thinks the whole country loves Michelle?

Many may not remember but all during the 2008 campaign she was sporting Nike logowear on hats, clothes, and shoes. I figured she had a deal thru her brother.

Give her a mustache when no one is looking.

That was my first instinct. But a hammer and sickle might be more appropriate.

Unfortunately Subway is not publicly traded.
If it was, I’d be recommending puts.

It will be darn near impossible for me to see Michelle’s face on a Subway wall...from the Firehouse Sub shop down the street.

Michelle Obama’s face is about to invade every one of their restaurants.

Well, that's one way to encourage weight loss. I know that looking at her face would certainly wreck my appetite.

Their FB page is "interesting" .... they were getting flooded and slammed with negative, brutal comments and it looks like the most recent comments that are negative were posted around Jan. 23 so they must be deleting the negative ones. The more recent comments are all "pro" the association with Moochelle like this: "Thank you Subway for teaming up with the First Lady's Let's Move Campaign. Your concern for the health of our children is admirable."

Jimmie Johns, Quiznos, etc. are probably doing a "happy dance" based on the earlier comments when folks were allowed to say they were taking their business elsewhere.

I really don’t see this happening. Whether it’s Laura Bush or the Wookie, putting a First Lady in advertising is just plain stupid.

It will pi$$ off half the customers.
