Mooch Ends Childhood Obesity!


Mooch seems to have stemmed the tide of childhood obesity by starving children in the school lunch room. That’s the White House claim, anyway. Now that Barry has caused the oceans to quit rising, racial acrimony to end, and nailed the coffin shut on partisan bickering, we’re almost done with the fundamental transformation. Maybe they’ll give us a break?

Today the White House credited Michelle Obama’s three-year-old “Let’s Move” initiative with halting and even reversing a thirty year trend of increasing childhood obesity, a trend that has led to what the Centers for Disease Control has called an epidemic. A press release from the Office of the First Lady announced details of a “two day nationwide tour” at the end of the month to celebrate the third anniversary of the program that promotes exercise and healthy eating habits to young people. The press release also included a short history of the program (emphasis added):

Mrs. Obama launched Let’s Move! on February 9, 2010 to unite the country around our kids’ health and create real support for families to live healthier lives.  Since then parents, business leaders, educators, elected officials, military leaders, chefs, physicians, athletes, childcare providers, community and faith leaders and kids themselves have stepped up to improve the health of our nation’s children. 

Thanks to these efforts, families now have access to more information to make healthier decisions for their children. Young people now have more opportunities for physical activity in their communities. Food in schools has been dramatically improved. More Americans now have access to healthy, affordable food closer to home. And the national childhood obesity rate has leveled off, and even declined in some cities and states.

    Ending federal corn subsidies would stop subsidizing obesity.

      You’re absolutely right.

      High fructose corn syrup, I’m convinced, is the cause of the obesity ‘epidemic’. Federal subsidies created an environment which promotes it’s use as sugar.

      Ending unrestricted federal food subsidies would go a long way, too. Food stamps should only cover, unprocessed, staple foods such as flour, rice, sugar, dairy*, meat, eggs, etc…

        Oh, but then people might actuall have to MAKE their food in a kitchen rather than buy it in a convenience store where they get their forty ouncers, etc. What? Actually WORK to eat? It’s a start.

    Michelle is quite the fashion plate, too. She makes those other two women look… … … … beautiful.

    I always liked Rush Limbaugh’s comment: “I love the women’s movement… especially from behind.”

    The photo is hilarious.

    Is there anything more ridiculous in its claim and more hideous in its implications than that a federal program could almost instantly remodel tens of millions of Americans into “better” citizens?

      When looking for a pic, I typed in “Michelle obama fat” and it autopopulated booty. I just rolled with it and when I saw this one, I had to use it. 🙂

    Surprised the WH ministry of truth let that one slip through the cracks onto the interweb.

    reversed a thirty yr trend in just two years, wow….what a stategy.

    Of course the much leaner economy had no effect, right? That didn’t cut down the number of trips to the ice cream store or anything did it?

    Dang. It’s a Photoshop. I still like it.
