But it's notable because Darden Restaurants has, in the past, cooperated with first lady Michelle Obama on her push to reduce calories in menu items and offer healthy alternatives.

Reminds me metaphorically with the "Restaurant" in "Goodfellas", they got in bed with the wrong crowd and it went downhill from their...

The chess-piece fallacy: assuming that some authority can achieve desired results as though he were moving chessmen on a board, ignoring people’s desires and incentives

Lefties - we’re not just going to stand still and let you shoot us.

I love going to Red Lobster when I want a diet treat. I am currently doing the Atkins low carb diet, have dropped from 150lbs to 135 lbs since July. At RL can have lobster tails with drawn butter, salad, and broccoli which have almost no carbs and feels very luxurious.

We no longer eat at Darden restaurants.

Darden’s CEO, Clarence Otis, is considered and ARDENT democrat and Obama supporter.

The chief executive officer of Darden Restaurants, Clarence Otis, has contributed more than $94,000 to federal candidates during the last three cycles, almost entirely to Democrats. Otis has donated at least $4,600 to Obama and $59,300 to the Democratic National Convention since 2007. In July 2011, Otis had lunch with Obama to discuss jobs and the economy. According to the White House visitor logs, Otis has visited the Obama White House at least three times, including a meeting with Valerie Jarrett just one month before Obamacare was signed into law.

Darden has been an ardent supporter of Michelle Obama’s very controversial “Let’s Move” initiative. In September 2011, Michelle Obama endorsed menu changes at Olive Garden and Red Lobster. Olive Garden’s “Tour of Italy” packs an impressive 1,450 calories, 74 grams of fat, and 3,830 milligrams of sodium. Red Lobster’s “Admiral’s Feast” clocks in at a measly 1,280 calories, 73 grams of fat, and 4,300 milligrams of sodium.

Isn’t that illegal? There must be some law that disallows this. Where is The One? He should be on all the womens shows, tears streaming down his face and explaining how this is all Bush’s fault. /sar

I’ve never had much respect for how the restaurant industry treats its people anyway.
