    Michelle Obama told kids this week to convince their grandparents and “wrong people” to vote for us.

    Wrong people?

    Most. Divisive. President. Ever.

    Doesn't look like she's too happy having to go to Easter services, eh?


    President Barack Obama, and first lady Michelle Obama walk across the square from the White House to St. John’s Episcopal Church for Easter service in Washington Sunday, April 8, 2012
    Donning their Sunday best, President Barack Obama and his family attended Easter services this morning at St. John’s Church in Washington D.C. Located a block away from the White House, the protestant Episcopal parish is a frequent visit for Obama and past presidents. A casual stroll through Lafayette Park will bring you to the historic house of worship in minutes.
    The president, first lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia were seated about six pews back from the pulpit of Rev. Luis Leon. According to pool reporters on the scene, the sermon reflected on the uncertain state of world affairs as they related to the faith.

    Citing a recent New York Times article, the pastor said a new renaissance in Somalia’s capital could be seen as an allegory of rebirth.

    Well, you wanted the quote's origin didn't you?

    btw, that blog is an extremely well-written take down on the arrogance of the Obama's.

    I know y'all been waiting with baited breath for an update on Blackie - O after yesterday's revelation so here we go, campers!

    “This President Has Brought Us Out of The Dark And Into The Light”…

    Hallelujah! Chicago Jesus has risen!

    First lady Michelle Obama hit the campaign trail in Nashville on Tuesday and told a packed crowd in a downtown office building that the campaign has an “amazing story to tell.”

    “This President has brought us out of the dark and into the light,” she said. “But we need each and every one of you as fired up as you’ve been.

    Funny, it seems rather like he's brought America back to the Dark Ages...

    She's such a schmuck. Getting kids healthier. Hah. Schools binning home-made tuna sandwiches and replacing them with chuck nuggets. And why does the govt need to regulate kids meals?

    How's this (more vakay planning):

    While speaking at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, which cost our government tens of millions of dollars and our Secret Service its integrity, Obama revealed that it was really just a vacation scouting trip for his wife.

    And then there's this:

    Michelle Obama listed daughters Malia and Sasha as “senior staffers” to justify her $432,142 getaway to Africa.

    First lady Michelle Obama’s family trip to South Africa and Botswana in June cost taxpayers well over $424,000, according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group.

    The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, said the group, and that doesn’t include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members.

    Heh...let's see how the Lamestream Media defends this fraud, eh?

    Christ...you'd think the First Wookie could sue someone over that picture - although it does bring out the inner self nicely.

    One of her nicknames isn't Mooch for nothing!

    It cost taxpayers nearly a half-million dollars for first lady Michelle Obama to travel to Spain in 2010, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.

    Studies Question the Pairing of Food Deserts and Obesity

    By GINA KOLATA

    Published: April 17, 2012

    It is unclear how the idea took hold that poor urban neighborhoods were food deserts but it had immediate appeal. There is even an Agriculture Department “food desert locator” and a “National Food Desert Awareness Month” supported by the National Center for Public Research, a charitable foundation.

    It's unclear how the idea took hold? That's easy to figure out. Some party leader started the lie and the cadre took it up and spread it.

    ...Mrs. Obama has made elimination of food deserts an element of her broader campaign against childhood obesity, Let’s Move, winning praise from Democrats...

    Speaking in October on the South Side of Chicago, Michelle Obama said that in too many neighborhoods “if people want to buy a head of lettuce or salad or some fruit for their kid’s lunch, they have to take two or three buses, maybe pay for a taxicab, in order to do it.”

    ...Mrs. Obama's office referred questions about the food deserts issue to the Department of Agriculture...




    But two new studies have found something unexpected. Such neighborhoods not only have more fast food restaurants and convenience stores than more affluent ones, but more grocery stores, supermarkets and full-service restaurants, too. And there is no relationship between the type of food being sold in a neighborhood and obesity among its children and adolescents.



    Within a couple of miles of almost any urban neighborhood, “you can get basically any type of food,” said Roland Sturm of the RAND Corporation, lead author of one of the studies. “Maybe we should call it a food swamp rather than a desert,” he said.



    Some experts say these new findings raise questions about the effectiveness of efforts to combat the obesity epidemic simply by improving access to healthy foods. Despite campaigns to get Americans to exercise more and eat healthier foods, obesity rates have not budged over the past decade, according to recently released federal data.



    “It is always easy to advocate for more grocery stores,” said Kelly D. Brownell, director of Yale University’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, who was not involved in the studies. “But if you are looking for what you hope will change obesity, healthy food access is probably just wishful thinking.”

    No! No! American businesses must be blamed. The people are victims!

    Mrs Obamas focus was obviously on ease of acces to and availability of FRESH fruits and vegetables.
    The first thing they mention is fast food outlets.
    But two new studies have found something unexpected. Such neighborhoods not only have more fast food restaurants......

    Isn't it typical of the right. If either the president or his wife supports something, no matter how beneficial, it will be swatted down and ridiculed. As if there is something good about obesity, diabetes or heart disease. These people are truly evil.
