    By making herself queen of the school lunchroom, Michelle Obama has managed to screw things up almost as badly as Obamacare has screwed up health insurance, albeit on a smaller scale.  The Twitter hashtag #thanksmichelleobama accompanying pictures of inedible school cafeteria slop is evidence that a generation of nanny state-hating youngsters will eventually enter the voting booth, just as many of their parents are turning on Democrats over Obamacare.  And like Obamacare devastates family finances with high deductibles and cost increases for many,  the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act that Mrs. Obama pushed so hard is devastating the finances of...

    While many public school students complain about lunchtime mush that meets White House calorie guidelines, President Barack Obama's daughters are dining on gourmet meals at a posh private school in Washington. School kids have been moaning about tasteless fare local governments adopt to comply with first lady Michelle Obamas war on the waistline and posting photos of the mystery meals online. The Sidwell Friends School, the $36,000-a-year private academy attended by Malia and Sasha Obama, also posts its menus on the Internet. The Daily Caller discovered that Sidwell students eat well. Thursdays lunch included: potato sausage soup, firecracker slaw, California...

    The Daily Caller ^ | December 9, 2014 | Eric Owens, education editor
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Most American kids attend public schools. On the other hand, the first daughters, Malia and Sasha, attend Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. Tuition per student at the private school is $36,264 per year (but that includes a hot lunch). For Tuesday, Dec. 9, the scrumptious, bountiful lunch menu for both the middle school and the upper school at Sidwell Friends is: Potato Sausage Soup; Firecracker Slaw; California Chefs Salad; All Natural Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings; Sweet Potato Black Bean Bake; Sauted Local Greens; Gemelli Alfredo; Sliced Pineapple This menu of completely free lunch items certainly sounds delicious and nutritious....

    The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round, just like the endless cycles of big, bad government programs to federalize preschool and daycare. On Wednesday, the White House Summit on Early Education will unveil nearly $1 billion in new "investments" to "expand access to high-quality early childhood education to every child in America" from "birth and continuing to age 5." It's a retread of President Obama's 2013 State of the Union school-spending plan, which was a repackaging of his 2011 Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge program. Those Obama initiatives are knockoffs of moldy-old Democratic policy chestnuts, such...

    Michelle Obama has been a champion of increased health standards for school lunches in her time as First Lady. As part of her Let's Move! program and the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, there have been new nutrition standards for public schools. Republicans say that the standards are unnecessary, intrusive, trample on local school perogatives, and is too expensive. Congress is making moves to relax these new guidelines:

    The seniors at Capital City Public Charter School experienced the usual wave of relief and anticipation after mailing off college applications Friday, as well as an added surprise: a hug from Michelle Obama. The first lady came to their school in Northwest Washington to take part in what has become an annual tradition at some schools across the country the College March. Before she arrived, the seniors paraded through the hallways with college applications in hand while underclassmen cheered them along. At most schools, the march culminates at a nearby mailbox or post office. On Friday, the seniors at...

The stamps, costing $146,250 to print and worth more than $22 million if sold, were never distributed. Now, officials at the money-losing agency are getting ready to try again. We are continuing to develop plans regarding a fitness-themed stamp series, USPS spokesman Mark Saunders told The Post.

    Many parents prefer to send their children off to school with a packed lunch, believing that the food they have given them is far healthier than school lunches. But a new study, published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, claims this may not be the case. The research team, led by Alisha R. Farris of the Department of Human Nutrition, Food and Exercise at Virginia Tech, found that school lunches had better average nutritional quality than packed lunches. "We found that both packed and school lunches almost entirely met nutrition standards, except school lunches were below energy and...

    Many pundits and campaign consultants are no doubt analyzing the election results across the country to try to decipher what lessons the Republican wave holds for candidates planning to run in 2016. But there are four easily seen lessons that both of the major political parties should take to heart: First, the manipulation of election rules and political trickery didnt work. In Kansas, for example, the Democratic Party forced its U.S. Senate nominee to withdraw and refused to comply with a state law that required the party to name a replacement candidate for the ballot. Democrats were hoping that...

She touted Udalls Senate record in her speech, and called him a fifth-generation Coloradan. Mark understands what makes this state special, she said. The only problem? Udall is not a fifth-generation Coloradan. In fact, he was born in Arizona and his father, former Rep. Mo Udall, served as a...

Mark Udall as he faces a tight run for a second term. Republicans have targeted the seat as one of the six they need to win control of the Senate. Udall narrowly trails his Republican challenger, Rep. Cory Gardner, in recent polls. Democrats are counting on turning out their base voters, especially younger women, to close the gap.

Her father Vince Holton said: 'I can go pay a dollar for a lunchabe and get more food in it. Schools are responsible for children while they're at school.'

    Yes, seriously. Not one, not two, but three prominent media figures are floating the idea that Michelle Obama (and Bill Clinton, apparently) intentionally butchered Iowa Senate candidate Bruce Braleys name seven times last Friday. Lets begin with the third hour of NBCs Today. NewsBusters reports that during a discussion of Michelles name flub, co-host Willie Geist noted that Michelle would have had a teleprompter with Braleys name on it. But now hes getting a lot of name recognition, he pointed out. Maybe it was like evil genius move, who knows? Meanwhile, Politicos Hadas Gold independently reached the same conclusion on...

    "All our kids"well, except for the ones who won't have a chance to build a life at all, thanks to Davis' ardent support of abortion . . . As a loyal member of Wendy Davis' email list, I just received today's fundraising message from the campaign, touting the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama has cut a radio ad for Davis. The email highlights the portion of the ad in which Mrs. Obama says Davis supports education "because she wants to give all our kids a chance to build a better life for themselves and for their families." Listen to...

    For many young professionals far from their schools days and a ways away from having children of their own, the battle over healthier school lunches seems of little relevance. But in Washington, D.C., the policy debate has become an all encompassing issue highlighting the intricate network of lobbyists, corporations and associations all with a financial stake in a policy that was otherwise born of good intentions. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act was passed in 2010, offering $4.5 billion in new funding over 10 years. However, the details of the new program have yet to be implemented due to a growing...

    Whats in a name? For Michelle Obama, a whole lot of confusion. While campaigning in Des Moines, Iowa Friday for Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley, she referred to him multiple times as Bailey before she was corrected by someone shouting from the audience. The flub came despite a huge array of signs in the hall where she was speaking, all spelling Braleys name correctly

    It's been a rough campaign for Rep. Bruce Braley (D), who is running for the U.S. Senate in Iowa. It got a bit worse Friday when first lady Michelle Obama campaigned for him. First, she called him "Bruce Bailey." [seven times] (Bill Clinton also recently made the same mistake.) Then she said he was a Marine Corps veteran. (He's not.)The Des Moines Register posted video of the event:... Somebody quickly pounced the Braley/Bailey flub. The Web site votebrucebailey.com redirects to the campaign Web site of Republican nominee Joni Ernst.

    Full disclosure: I feel awful today. Vaguely half-nauseous, having what we will gently call digestive issues, generally logy and possibly congested: it seemed like an excellent time to take it easy. It would take a definite electoral disaster to pierce this fog of illness, in short. And Michelle Obama delivered. Jimmy @JimmyPrinceton Bruce Braley never even served. How does FLOTUS think he's a USMC vet? 4:18 PM - 10 Oct 2014 8 Retweets 4 favorites Heres the video of the event: it autoplays and I cant turn it off, so skip ahead to 3:28 where, indeed, the First Lady...

    First Lady and school nutrition advocate Michelle Obamas stringent lunch guidelines are limiting children to just one ketchup packet per meal. A recent EagNews.com article profiled unhappy Idaho customers of the Obama administrations revisions to the National School Lunch program, including a parent who called school lunches not edible and kids who have stopped eating lunch completely. Kids cant take two ketchup packets [for burgers] because that would set them over on calories, said a Burley, Idaho district food-service secretary.

    MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin Reporter was barred from covering a campaign rally Tuesday in Madison for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke and featuring first lady Michelle Obama. Melissa Baldauff, communications director for the state Democratic Party, informed Wisconsin Reporter on Monday it wasnt allowed to attend the event at the Overture Center because the online publication isnt a legitimate news source. This marks the second time in about a week the Burke camp has dictated press coverage of a campaign fundraiser in Wisconsin headlined by the first lady. Milwaukee Journal Sentinels Meg Kissinger reported White House and Burke staff tried...
