Posted on 06/17/2014 11:57:08 AM PDT by stars & stripes forever

In an interview with MSN.com, First Lady Michelle Obama explained she used to struggle to feed her kids right—even though she received an education from Harvard and Princeton. “Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right,” she explained, sharing a story about her children’s doctor who pulled her aside to talk about her family diet.

Can’t feed your kids right BECAUSE of your Harvard degree.

Wow amazing humility from the first lady.

Here she is one of the super elite of society, the most well educated and perfect of beings... and yet EVEN SHE could not do it right. Wow.

She was rich, and she couldn’t feed her kids?

One of my mother’s tricks when we didn’t have food was to make cornbread and buy a quart of milk, and we would have a glass of corn bread crumbs and milk mixed, of course it wasn’t filling, but her trick was to sit at the table and talk to us, which was a treat since she was a single mom that had to ride the bus to and from work and so was gone until close to bedtime, and then had to do housework and dealing with us three boys baths and such during most of the little time that we saw her.

I think of this when I read about Obama and his PHD mom and rich grandmother, and Bill Clinton with his nurse anesthesiologist mom and car dealer step dad, and now Michelle’s struggles of two lawyers raising kids.

My mother with her 8th grade education and living in Houston, would not take a penny of government money, while the rich liberals moan about not being able to feed their kids properly.

This is the sentence her Harvard degree made possible:

“as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy,”

Ghetto talk from the First Lady of the formerly great United States of America.

Their oldest daughter is 15. That means she was born in 1999 or about.

Obama was Senator in 1999.

He couldn’t feed his kid on a Senator’s salary? Give me a break.

“In 2005, Obama took 23 such private aircraft flights, some to attend fund-raisers he headlined. In 2006, Obama led the fight to ban lawmakers from taking cut-rate private air travel.”http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2008/04/02/november-4-1999-obama-records-obama-not-in-senate-november-4-1999-russert-lynn-sweet-chicago-tribune-truth-about-obama/

He ran for President in 2006, and was getting plenty of money in the way of campaign contributions. I’m sure he was not ‘poor’ then.

Mrs. Great Leader is finally admitting to her tantamount stupidity — showing the world what an educated idiot does when confronted with responsibility. This poor woman... Someone should have suggested a less expensive home and vehicles and then to use that extra money to feed her burdens (oops, I mean her children).

So a Harvard degree is worthless.

Proves that one of the main points of going to college is to learn about solving problems.

However, this misses the larger point:
MO and I are the same age. Was she not treated to many, many examples of the food pyramid?

Po Thing. Life’s been so hard for you...

She could buy a book about it at lots of different stores. Many cookbooks have helpful hints and overview of nutrition.

Of course, you would have to want to feed the kids better and want to take the time to buy a cookbook and look some stuff up.

Stories like this make me appreciate my mom, grandmas, mother in laws and church ladies! Networking!

I wonder how many moments this condition existed. There are probably plenty of American families that have had to accomplish the same for long periods of time with no degree and no income that are unemployed because of the obama family.

No Mooch, I don’t believe a course of studies in the law includes any classes in nutrition, regardless of where you take those courses.
Women learn about nutrition either from their mothers or they educate themselves.

No. I don’t believe a friggin word of this.

She and Barry could not possibly be THAT stupid; AND she’s had Mama Robinson along for most of the ride, hasn’t she? Surely Grandma knows how to make dinner - ???

Once again, here’s one of the Soetero’s making up a story to insert themselves into the lives of America.

Making BS out of whole cloth to prove a point, to push an agenda. Maybe just to point out that she is better than you, look at her diplomas. What do they call it on DU? “Concern troll”?? or something like that.

Maybe this lie of hers is to comfort the truly stupid of America, to let Honey Boo-Boo’s mama know that it’s ok to feed your kids like pigs - the gub’mint gonna take care of all y’all’s kids.

Maybe to undermine the confidence of parents of America that CAN be undermined, maybe to try to shame American parents. Maybe to make kids wonder if their parents ARE imbeciles and need the guidance of the The Wons.

Propaganda, lies, whatever it takes, eh? But no, I don’t believe this lying sack of crap.

I was under the impression that she received a Juris Doctor degree. Do colleges and universities now really offer academic degree programs in “Harvard?”

I guess it’s an aeronautics degree in the T-6 Texan trainer aircraft, which the British of course call the “North American Harvard.”

They don't teach basic living skills or common sense at Ivy League University. In fact, if you possess common sense when you enter an Ivy League University, you will no longer have it when they hand you a diploma.

I'm not sure how you cook a Harvard Degree to make it nutritious. It's sheepskin but then with all that ink on it, no matter how it is prepared, it probably doesn't taste too good to a young child. Maybe if you coated it in honey before feeding it to them.

How hard is it really, to make a salad, cook a green vegetable and a protein like chicken? Unreal. Sometimes my mother would give a treat and include mac and cheese along with the meal. Or fruit cocktail for dessert. That was always a treat.
