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."

Look, I can’t prove it but I make the statement any way. Who is the real father of those kids?? Barry spent 10 years back on the Mainland prior to being ‘introduced’ to Moochella. There is NOT one single woman who has EVER come forth to say she dated this homo, kissed this homo, got felt-up by this homo, slept with homo, had sex with this homo, or has any photos or love letters with or from this homo!!! One has to stretch one’s imagination to picture this homo on top of Moochella going for the Gold!! Just didn’t happen. AIS maybe, but not actual intercourse. No way Jose!

It takes two to counterbalance Guam .. (I know .. totally out of context ... but in MY weird mind ... it fit)

WMTA, I guess, I got it, and it worked for me. (I also got a really strange image of her "island hopping"...)

Say, was she anywhere near the ocean when Japan got hit? or Boxing Day?

She's taking credit for poor kids getting skinny?

Wow.

Notice they said "...and territories...", which means they really had to cook the stats.

AAAAAUUUUUGGGGGHHHH!!

Thank you for allowing me to let that out.

The absolute hubris of BO and Moochelle are unbelievable!!

I thought that 1 out of 4 people was “food insecure”. Maybe, your plan is working because people have less money to spend on food!!

GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!

I don’t begrudge the little ornamental efforts the First Lady makes between twice-a-month multimillion-dollar vacations at taxpayer expense. Heck, if she succeeds in teaching enough little welfare socialists about arugula and other things they don’t want to put on their WIC cards, maybe she’ll be “proud of America again.”

what slop at the hog trough on tofu? She needs to take her own advice for that FAT rear end of hers!

Did you know a 5 ft woman at 115 is considered boarder line obese by gov’t standards? One size does not fit all. We all have different bone and muscle mass and some of us are over gifted in certain areas. I don’t have a spare ounce of fat. Just overly large muscles and muscles weigh more than fat. DUH!

The dividing line between Conservatives and Progressives is on full display here. We celebrate people being free to make their own life choices. Progressives celebrate that they have successfully changed society to chose their preferred choices in life.

And the seals will bark and clap in unison that she is such a benavolent dictator.
