Pig out on Pennsylvania Avenue: Michelle Obama eats everything she says you shouldn’t eat

by editor on July 13, 2011

Michelle Obama went to lunch on Monday. In other words, she went to a fast food joint and ordered a double helping of hypocrisy with some sanctimony on the side.

Flaunting her role as Big Brother’s Big Mother, she sat down at the trough and ate everything she tells the little people not to eat.

The Washington Post explores the excess caloric count:

First lady Michelle Obama ordered a whopper of a meal at the newly opened Washington diner Shake Shack during lunch on Monday.

A Washington Post journalist on the scene confirmed the first lady, who’s made a cause out of child nutrition, ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke while the street and sidewalk in front of the usually-packed Shake Shack were closed by security during her visit.

According to nutritional information on Shake Shack’s Web site, the meal amounted to 1,700 calories.

Obama, who launched the “Let’s Move” campaign to combat childhood obesity last year, has previously admitted to having an “obsession with french fries,” which she says are fine to indulge in occasionally. “It’s all about moderation,” Obama told reporters.

Moderation. That’s what it’s called when you follow a 1700-calorie meal with a Diet Coke.

You’re not giving Mrs. Obama the credit she deserves. She is saving lives here. She eats food that would otherwise go to some fat slob who doesn’t have access to the world’s greatest health care.

May FLOTUS’s near and dear rear end grow and blossom many and innumerable times from this day hence. May it flourish so that it drags on the floor like an exotic wedding train, may it get stuck in the door everytime FLOTUS enters the room, may it take a team of professional asswipes to wipe it and wash it, may it be too wide for a decent back end view from a standing mirror, may Jenny Craig be unable or unwilling to help dear leader’s wilting flower, may this continue after FLOTUS is no longer FLOTUS!

Isn’t that a photo from a TV? I thought Trolivia proudly said you never ever watch TV. Perhaps you could have used the name of the book instead if relying on TV photos to make your point, if you actually had one. I bet its because you did not see any babies killed today in your mop job that your feeling kinda blue and can’t think straight.

Oblovia, how good to hear from you, gosh it’s been what, minutes at least. How’s the gout? How’s that bad left hammer-toe, you know, the one you stubbed the last time you and I met? It appears you don’t know the difference between a soliloquy and a curse, so here’s one for you: May you continue to annoy those near and dear to you until you haven’t a friend left in the world, except Obama. May you continue to remain a deer in the head lights of all on coming posters on this site, because it makes great sport and is so fun to mock you. May you continue to enjoy innumerable thumbs down, because that’s how you rate. May you join Moochelle in the widening of the posterior estate until yours drags on the floor like a whimsical tail, because it’s what you deserve for being a quisling. I could go on and on, but for the sake of time I’ll just leave the rest up to your ample imagination!

Mrs. Bush was never a target for hatred among the left, as Mrs. Obama (as well as Mrs. Clinton, during her First Lady days) has been among the right.”
************************
But “everybody knows” Laura Bush killed a guy, right?
*************************
Yes, of course. It’s public record. http://www.snopes.com/politics/bush/laura.asp

But I’ve never seen anyone bring it up during a political discussion, except in response to right wingers who claim that “Teddy Kennedy” should have been thrown in prison for murder, even though he was neither charged with nor convicted of murder.

You’ll have to do better than that, if you want to convince anyone that Laura Bush has been savaged by the left as badly as Michelle Obama has by the right.

Actually, it’s just the opposite. I don’t have an issue with food or eating, so I don’t tend to watch how much food other people eat and spread malicious gossip about it.

It’s been my experience, from junior high school on, that people with weight problems of their own are much more likely to make catty remarks about other people’s diets than people who are average sized or thin. With the exception of people with eating disorders, regardless of physique who tend to obsess about food anyway.

No, you just accuse everyone else of being morbidly obese, while telling them that their daring to say something about Moochelle belies their obesity. So, let me get this straight. If I say something about Moochelle, I’m obese. If you claim I’m obese, it means you aren’t obese.

Not at all. I’m not the one who calls men with trim shapes and flat stomachs “metrosexual,” and fit only for women who wish to bully them. Nor do I make b*tchy remarks about women with good figures, or grumble that men get treated better by fat women than thin ones. In fact, I’m perfectly capable of admiring and complimenting other women who are well proportioned and groomed, without feeling that it takes anything away from me.

Sorry, Poppajoe, but your defensiveness on this issue pretty much says it all.

Men that are lean as you like, tend to make more snide remarks about other people being overweight, than any other group. You just don’t know it because they talk behind your back. The only reason I posted my measurements was to try and shut you up. Your bitchy little comments about everyone here being Obese are getting tiresome, and according to your logic, prove you to be obese and unhappy about it.

Trolivia, your too liberal to understand since your own hypocrisy blinds you. Perhaps i can explain it so even your mop job mentality will allow you to understand. Lets say the president says you should not smoke cigarettes because they are bad, nasty,unhealthy, and he knows whats best for you. Now, as he says this he is puffing away on two cigs while a third is burning in the ashtray. Now can you see how silly this looks?
********************
Sure. But that’s not an honest analogy here, is it? Mrs. Obama never said, “Don’t eat any high fat foods EVER, because they’re bad, nasty, unhealthy and I know what’s best for you.” Nor was she witnessed eating three fast food meals at a time.

You see the problem here? When you far righters insist on fudging the facts and making gross exaggerations, you don’t do your own credibility any good. You succeed only in exposing yourselves as malicious liars, who are leaping at every opportunity, no matter how petty, to b*tch about the First Lady.
****************************
as I say, not as I do” is NOT the best way to educate another person. We are simply saying the first lady is acting rather stupidly, and your trying to argue its a good thing she is doing.
****************************
Wrong again. I never stated or implied that eating fast food is a “good thing.” (In fact, I never eat fast food if I can possibly avoid it.)
****************************
For once admit she is doing the wrong thing and move on. Its okay for your patron saint of liberalism to stumble from time to time.
****************************
Sorry, but I don’t have a “patron saint of liberalism.” If I seem to spend a lot of time defending the First Lady, it’s because people like you spend a lot of time attacking her. If someone commented, “She should probably not eat fast food in public, because it gives people the wrong idea,” I might be inclined to agree with it. But this silly hyperbole about her “forcing” the public to avoid high fat, high sugar foods, and then “gorging” herself on such foods regularly, makes it impossible to take your complaint seriously.

As does the fact that you’re too childish to call me by my screen name, preferring instead to create childish pejoratives like “Trolivia.” Sometimes I just have to ask myself, what are you people thinking? Do you really think this kind of juvenile posturing makes you appear smarter, more credible, or more attractive as a political alternative?

Let’s see: while visiting Botswana, Mrs. Obama stops in at a local carryout place and buys some of the regional specialty. We don’t know whether she ate all or some or none of it. Sixteen days later, she gets a hamburger, French fries, shake and diet Coke at a new DC area carryout…..and the far right goes into a feeding frenzy (pun intended) both times.

Let’s see your evidence that, during the intervening 15 days, Mrs. Obama didn’t follow a generally healthy diet-and-exercise regimen. THEN we’ll talk.

You do have that evidence, don’t you? For all forty-five meals, and 15-30 exercise periods?

Laura Bush was known to wear sensible shoes, and some of her clothes were downright grandmotherly looking. And her mother-in-law was, shall we say, quite portly (and not much of a fashion plate). Where did you get the idea that First Ladies are obligated to dress like fashion plates?

The “wide load” comment was as vulgar as it is untrue. I think half of you dittoheads need glasses, and the other half need to get their heads out of Rush’s rectum, to improve their visual range.

(And, yes, that remark was vulgar—but no more so than your hero is himself.)

Even if the criticism of Mrs. O goes over the top (look up the word ‘hyperbole’), the main issue is not whether she is perfect or not, slim or not, a binge eater or not, ate all her Jack-in-the-Botswana food or not, or if her big booty is real or not. People just are tired of being NAGGED. I wish she ate ALL the time; then she couldn’t talk.

***********************
I don’t understand, Jay. Are you saying she calls you up on the phone and keeps track of what you ate for lunch? Are you saying she sends you e mails, scolding you for not exercising enough? Are you saying she stops in at your house every dinner time, to check to see what you’re eating?

If not, then I’m not sure what you mean by “nagging.”

Could it possibly be that your expectations are unrealistic? Maybe that you were expecting her to be silent and obedient, like one of those pre-Civil Rights Era house servants? Because I don’t see that she’s unduly noisy, or that she’s targeting you specifically in her “Let’s Move” program.

Of course, if you were sick of hearing her talk about diet and exercise, there was no need for you to make a beeline for this discussion…… 😉

Why are you opposed to American children having the opportunity to be well nourished? Is this yet another example of the “I’ve got mine, scr*w you” mentality of spoiled far righters?

This is so ridiculous. These loons are SOOOOO desperate to smear the First Lady that they can’t resist reporting her calorie count every time she orders out.

Let’s see—-the last time they made a big hoopla about her ordering food, she was in Africa, buying some of the local specialty in a carry-out place. Mind you, they didn’t see her eat it, and have no way of knowing whether she ate all (or any) of it herself, but they couldn’t resist trying to turn it into the Scandal of the Century anyway.

That was sixteen days ago. HOW DARE SHE ORDER A HAMBURGER LUNCH JUST SIXTEEN DAYS AFTER ORDERING THE LOCAL SPECIALTY IN AN AFRICAN CARRYOUT RESTAURANT!!!!!!!

Of course, as usual, those who are doing the loudest b*tching and picking are fail to notice that:
1) Michelle Obama doesn’t appear to have gained weight since her husband’s inauguration 2 1/2 years ago
2) Michelle Obama does practice what she preaches, namely getting enough exercise, following a healthy diet in general with occasional indulgences
3) Most dietitians will tell you that it’s reasonable to indulge in favorite foods once in a while, just so long as your diet is generally healthy.

Let’s face it, righties: it would be difficult for most Americans (other than bulimics, anorectics and fitness fanatics) to relate to a First Lady who NEVER ate French fries or desserts. If she advocated a strict and uncompromising low fat regimen, I dare say you’d be accusing her of “arrogance” (how DARE she suggest that what the rest of us eat isn’t good enough for her!) or selfish obsession with her personal appearance.

So what’s next? You loons have b*tched about her clothes, her hair, her diet, her vacation choices, her (alleged) graduate school thesis, her childhood home, her mother’s presence on vacations, her shoes, her church, her friendliness with Queen Elizabeth, her inaugural gown, her official appearances, her unofficial appearances, her figure and her alleged hatred of “whitey.” Yet the rest of the world seems to look on her favorably anyway, to your everlasting disgust.

Maybe it’s time to admit the truth: your relentless smear campaign against YOUR First Lady isn’t working. In fact, it’s backfiring on you rather badly.

What in the entire free world is wrong with you, Olivia?

I’m new to this Board and it is quite obvious you have assumed the role of “Village Idiot” but, do you have to flaunt the title so flagrantly? Do facts ever play into your diatribes, or are you also the national representative from “Platitudes-R-Us” assigned to monitor this Board?

After reading a large number of your (click to see) posts I can only conclude that you are either a(n)(intentionally or unintentionally) misinformed ideologue hell-bent to forward some half-baked agenda, or, you are a crafty, well read Conservative posing as an obnoxious caricature to yank on everyone’s chain. I hope (for all our sake) it is the latter, and a great “Hazzah and Kudos” for pulling off the prank. Yet, I fear that it is the former, as I have met many “usefull idiots” such as yourself, who are more than willing to “pimp themselves out” to a wholly unsustainabe idea.

Now…. I said all that to say this:

I am from Chicago and Chicago (or Illinois) politics is not for the faint of heart. I have followed BHO (and Michelle) since BEFORE his initial infection of local politics, all the way to the full-blown disease of his presidency (small p intended).

The Truth? (I love this part) YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

Alleged Thesis? Read it. It’s on-line. Substitute White for Black, Grambling for Princeton and you have a paper which would make a Klansman blush. It’s a voice which says “Black first” with no regard for assimilation into the social order. Don’t take my word for it- read it yourself, or have someone read it to you.
Then you can try: MO/patient dumping, MO/hospital/pay and then top it all off with MO/best friend/high school to see in who’s home she spent some of her “formative” years. Trust me- you’ll die laughing

BHO? Jebus, How much time have I got?

Google the following:
Obama/Alice Palmer-to see how he “won” his first election.
Obama/Bobby Rush-To see how he LOST the election in the 1st Congressional District to an ex-Black Panther in 2000.
Obama/Redlining Lawsuit-Which force banks to lend money to individuals who couldn’t afford it. The beginning and the end of the housing boom. Guess who was one of the lawyers in that suit?
Obama/Pritzker/Subprime loans-He was there at the beginning, and tried to make her Commerce Secretary.
Obama/Emil Jones-How to make a Senator with other people’s work.

Tip o’ the iceburg, folks. Too little, too late. There are tons more BHO stories, but the MSM never touched them.

My point entirely, pj-

It is that kind of idiocy which has taken the Democrats off the cliff, and her kind of blind ignorance in the face of clearly documented facts which could damn well take the rest of us down with them.

But whatever let’s indulge the troll: Video of her on 2008 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTFsB09KhqI Not skinny but definetly toned and tight.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59twO1fJwtQ&feature=relmfu 2008

Getting fuller in mid area 2009: http://fashion.about.com/od/celebritystyle/ig/Michelle-Obama-in-Europe/Michelle-Obama-in-J-Crew.-W_X.htm

Since you love her so much be bored with her boring ass speech here still 2009: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdL87ehVuIU (She really does love those french fries)

Yikes! It must be hard standing next to Carla:

So… 2010… http://nymag.com/daily/fashion/2010/02/the_michelle_obama_look_book_2.html#photo=1×70683 The sycophants that claims that she looks good in these garments is a moron…

Even the black garments do not hide that she gained weight and she is not showing off her arms as much isn’t she? uhm wonder why? Some of those clothes even look too small for her frame.

So…. 2011: Yes because she OBVIOUSLY remained the same weight as she did in 2008 right? http://www.bet.com/content/betcom/news/politics/2011/05/03/michelle-obama-does-the-dougie/_jcr_content/articleText/textwithinlinemedia/image.custom300x0.dimg
It is a nice dress but something is wrong in how it fit her:
Why does she continue to wear those belts? http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/jul/13/michelle-obama-shake-shack-burger-obesity
uhm delicious:
?w=500&h=807 a similar dress a few years ago would have not fit her that snuggly, however she looks better in this than in this:
She needs to stop wearing these types of dresses:

But hey whatever the troll will say she is all that and she is hot. Fine like I said if she wants to be fat no problem just dont go into a game of telling people that they need to loose weight when she is not necessarily leading by example.

******************
The word is “Xanax,” not “Zanax,” Mr. Armchair Psychiatrist, and it’s an antianxiety agent. If you’re trying to sound urbane by tossing around medication lingo, it would be as well to know what you’re talking about first. 😉

The original piece (which was NOT an objective news piece, if you’d bothered to look and/or understood what “objective” means) was from a Washington Post blog. I guess you didn’t realize that the Washington Post, unlike most of your favorite right wing rags, publishes opinions from across the political spectrum, not just selected opinions that it wants to peddle to its readers.

(You’d know this if you ever bothered to LOOK at it, rather than just parroting what Rush Limbaugh says about it.)

And, speaking of His Royal Blimpiness, I enjoyed this piece from a few months ago, also a Washington Post blog entry. Once again, I see you’re dutifully parroting Rush’s childish insults (“Moochelle”) because you weren’t capable of coming up with your own lines:

DANA MILBANK
Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Rush Limbaugh thinks Michelle Obama is a big, fat idiot.

The broadcaster announced during his show Monday that the first lady “took the kids out to Vail on a ski vacation, and they were spotted eating, and they were feasting on ribs – ribs that were 1,575 calories per serving with 141 grams of fat.”

Actually, the restaurant put the calorie count at 600, but Rush was determined to chew out Obama. “The problem is – and dare I say this? – it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice,” he said. “I’m trying to say that our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.”

Limbaugh is in an excellent position to make this observation, being perhaps the finest example of the male form since Michelangelo sculpted David. In 2009, he went on a fad diet, full of controversial supplements but little exercise, and lost 90 pounds. Such crash diets are dangerous – and, sure enough, Limbaugh wound up in the hospital at the end of the year with chest pains. Judging from recent video footage, he has regained most of the bulk.

But Limbaugh isn’t the only one who thinks the first lady is hypocritical to campaign for healthy eating while indulging in the occasional burger. A week earlier, Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government Web site published a cartoon showing an overweight Obama devouring a heaping pile of hamburgers and fries.

“I’ve stepped up my efforts to control America’s eating habits by telling restaurants to lower portion sizes and fat content,” she tells her husband in the drawing.

The president, poking at vegetables, tells her that she is “going to annoy a lot of people.”

“Shut up and pass the bacon,” the first lady says.

A few days before that, the American Spectator criticized “Food Nanny” Obama for an e-mail to supporters saying she looked forward to having barbecue at the Democratic convention in Charlotte in 2012. “Michelle Obama praising Carolina barbecue? That’s like Gandhi praising mixed martial arts fighting.”

Fox News contributed the additional knowledge that barbecue is “not known to be diet food” and that “studies show a barbecue meal weighs in at around 2,500 calories.”

Now, I’m not accustomed to defending Lady Arugula. When I ridiculed as elitist her acquisition of pricey (and certified-organic) Tuscan kale at a downtown Washington farmers’ market, her spokeswoman informed me that I wasn’t “invited back” to other first lady events.

But on this point, the first lady’s detractors don’t have a legitimate beef. She’s never told people to cut out junk food; she’s suggested they eat junk less often and exercise more. “I like to talk about my obsession with french fries because I don’t want people to think that ‘Let’s Move’ ” – her anti-obesity campaign – “is about complete, utter deprivation,” she told reporters over a recent lunch. “It is about moderation.”

Moderation? It is a concept that causes dyspepsia in the first lady’s critics.

Fox News mistook her moderation for hypocrisy when it posted a story titled “Michelle Obama OKs Americans to Eat Pie on Thanksgiving.” On the other side, nutritionists mistook her moderation for weakness when they told the Boston Globe that they were “wondering why Obama didn’t set a better example” than serving bratwurst, deep-dish pizza and Buffalo wings at the White House Super Bowl party.

In other words, the food criticism is an extension of politics. On the left are the purists who think a single tortilla chip is an unacceptable compromise. On the right are those who think any nutritional recommendation amounts to a food dictatorship. The first lady, taking a sensible approach, is sandwiched.

In Limbaugh’s case, politics is like a fad diet: He crows when the facts are supporting his beliefs (or when he’s losing weight), and, when the facts are discrediting his ideology (or when he’s yo-yoing back to obesity), he talks about something else. In politics, as in weight loss, fad dieting rarely works.

During Tuesday’s broadcast, Limbaugh resumed commenting on the first lady’s figure. “Some people are suggesting that my comments are below the belt,” he said of the woman he has called “Moochelle” and “Michelle My Butt.” Limbaugh continued: “Well, take a look at some pictures. Given where she wears her belts – she wears ’em high up there around the bust line – isn’t just about everything about her below the belt, when you look at the fashion sense she has?”

The corpulent critic giggled and concluded: “Yes, every square inch of my glorious, naked body oozes with the truth.” Let’s hope they keep him out of the swimsuit issue.

You’d know this if you ever bothered to LOOK at it, rather than just parroting what Rush Limbaugh says about it.

Well, since I don’t listen to Rush, it would be pretty tough for me to parrot anything he says. He’s on AM radio in my general region and I live far enough outside the city that I can’t pick it up.

Now, are you happy that you bothered to post what may be the longest mostly unread entry on this website?

Or, maybe, just maybe, Rush has his finger on the pulse of the public unhappy with this corrupt, out-of-control government, and they reward him by listening to him as he shows that he *understands* his audience — unlike, for example, Keith Olbermann, whose ratings started out as sucking, and got worse. Or Newsweek, which was sold for a dollar, and has rapidly devalued ever since?

If he understands the zeitgeist, what is it that KO understands? The sheissegeist?

You will never know — you are so happy to dismiss everything he says to the detriment of your basic curiosity — why *is* it that people like Rush? Since your perspective is flawed, you have no yardstick to compare and answer that question.

Sarah Palin is not a First Lady—she’s a politician, with a well-deserved reputation for slamming liberals and Democrats. It’s kind of unreasonable to expect us to like and support her, don’t you think?

A more honest comparison would be our reaction to Laura Bush. No matter how you try to spin it, Mrs. Bush was never a target for hatred among the left, as Mrs. Obama (as well as Mrs. Clinton, during her First Lady days) has been among the right.

Any effort to compare your attitude toward the First Lady with my atttitude toward the GOP is just silly. Michelle Obama isn’t a political party, and the things the far right criticizes about her have nothing to do with political ideology.

“Sarah Palin is not a First Lady—she’s a politician, with a well-deserved reputation for slamming liberals and Democrats. It’s kind of unreasonable to expect us to like and support her, don’t you think?”

First things first: the MSM started hammering Sarah Palin before she even resigned her governor’s post. The libtard media smeared her and her family during the 2008 campaign cycle and continued to persue, berate, and assault her in an attempt to ruin any potential she may have to run for future office…call me a liar! You can’t because you know I’m right, besides I don’t care if you do or don’t, your opinion means naught to me.

“A more honest comparison would be our reaction to Laura Bush. No matter how you try to spin it, Mrs. Bush was never a target for hatred among the left, as Mrs. Obama (as well as Mrs. Clinton, during her First Lady days) has been among the right.”

Secondly: The LSM (Lame Stream Media) would have gladly raked her over the coals if she had done or said anything the least little bit controversial while her hubby was in the WH. The reason they didn’t is because she, classy individual that she is, didn’t give them that kind of ammunition and she also didn’t “Do as I say, not as I do!” If she’s a hypocrite, she never publicly confirmed it by opening her big fat mouth!

“Any effort to compare your attitude toward the First Lady with my atttitude toward the GOP is just silly. Michelle Obama isn’t a political party, and the things the far right criticizes about her have nothing to do with political ideology.”

Thirdly: She’s as much of an idealogue as her POTUS is and far more politically involved in the political, social, and personal affairs of average Americans than she should be. FLOTUS is, as you say, not a political appointment so she should STFU and STFD and quit treating the position as if it were!

Oblovia, apopletic, or the kinds of things you assert on this site all the time, are NOT equal to apodictic, or the kinds of things we sling back atcha!

USA! USA! USA!

Olivia, maybe where you come from, 1700 calories of fast food at one sitting is considered “moderation” or a “healthy” diet (whatever that is) or even a midnite snack. BUT, if the first lady, who really finally loves America, in public, doesn’t practice what she preaches, she is no better then her POS husband. And someone needs to call her on it. Or is this all whiteys, righties, and Bush’s fault too? It’s never her husbands fault. All bow down, and praise him, he, and by marriage she, ARE the perfect human beings.

So please post some more drivel on how the POTUS and FLOTUS are perfect. It is somebodies fault not theirs. We are all racists, sexist, morons, (pick one..or pick them all like the first lady does when she sees a restaurant menu) because we do not see their perfection.

As Dave Barry famously put it, we Americans tend to give the impression of “enormous beef cattle wearing sneakers” when we travel abroad.

Michelle Obama isn’t waiflike, but neither is she the enormous sack of blubber that far righters dearly love to pretend she is. And, as far as I’ve seen, she does practice what she preaches. It’s only her detractors who try to pretend that suggesting a healthy diet, with occasional indulgences, and regular exercise, equals forcing others to eat salad and parsley while she gorges herself on junk food.

But, then, most of you were also taken in by that ridiculous urban legend that she’d gorged herself on room service lobster and champagne at the Ritz. The whole thing was every bit as fake as that prank Sarkozy call that Sarah Palin fell for, but you had no better sense than to swallow it, because (like Palin) you wanted SO badly to believe it was true.

Is it your practice to label everyone with whom you disagree as “far righters?” It may come as a surprise to you that not everyone who reads or comments here considers themselves to be far right, or even right-wing at all.

Yes, that is her practice. It’s all they got. We’re also racist, sexist, and every other “ist” she can think of at the time.

No, just those who embrace the far right wing stance on most (or all) issues, treat liberals like the Devil incarnate, and parrot far right wing misconceptions.

Yes, Americans are over weight. Not just righties, but lefties too. See Michael Moore, see Alec Baldwin, see Chris Matthews, etc. The point is not being over weight, it is being lectured about it by someone who does not have self control in her or his own life.

Occasional indulgence?? Really??
1700 calories of crap is a lot of calories in one sitting. It is not moderation, it is not an indulgence. It is 1700 calories of crap. She’s done it before, she will do it again. I did not elect her, nor her POS husband, but, if she is to be given press and publicity for the things that she thinks we should do, I expect her to LEAD by example and be ready to be called out when they f–k up. She is in the news, she is in the public eye, and like Sarah Palin (I put that in there just cause I know her very name makes you lefties froth at the mouth) she needs to be called out on her “indulgences”.

Yes, it is. And, as I’ve already pointed out, most dietitians will tell you that it’s unrealistic to follow a diet-and-exercise regimen that doesn’t include an occasional splurge. Mrs. Obama herself has said that.

Now, I’ll challenge you to do the same thing that I asked another poster to do: Show me your evidence that Mrs. Obama hasn’t followed a healthy diet-and-exercise regimen during the past 15 days prior to the burger-and-shake purchase. Either that, or show me her specific wording, indicating that she was demanding that the rest of us follow a regimen that she doesn’t follow herself.

Or you could just admit that you jumped on this bandwagon because everybody else is doing it, and have no real evidence at all……..

Sorry, Adolf—-no can do.

I’m not going to scurry around collecting evidence to try to persuade you of something that you have no intention of accepting anyway. It matters very little whether you agree with me on this point—I don’t need your stamp of approval.

Don’t it suck when people use your own words to burn you? 😀

As I said before (apparently that post got lost), it’s not my job to prove her innocent, but her accusers’ job to prove her guilty.

So best get to work, Bruce. So far, the biggest, loudest and most malicious accusers haven’t come up with one scrap of evidence to back up their wild-eyed claims. 😉

She has actually gained weight since the inaguration. She should NEVER eat like this WHILE at the same time telling people they need to eat less. She should lead by example. She is not. I dont see her working out, when does she work out and if she does, is she doing the marathon training or something?

Olivia, honey. If Michelle is working out so much, and sticking to a healthy diet most of the time, why is she spreading out to cover such a huge chunk of real estate? Gimme facts and figures, please. Oh, and by the way, first thumb down on that one.

(Hah, there were NO thumbs down on that one when I began to write that short paragraph. By the time I was done, there were SIX! It would seem that we’re not buying your nonsense here, Olivia. Honey.

***********************
There’s no shortage of articles on the internet about her daily workout routine—-did you even try to find them?

She tries to exercise twice a day (gets up at 4:30 am), although she admits that her schedule sometimes allows it only four days a week. And she does practice what she preaches: occasional splurges with hamburgers, etc., but sticks to a healthy diet in between times.

I’m still waiting to see some evidence from naysayers that she and her personal trainers are lying about her diet and exercise regimen. So far no takers, huh?

And, again, YOU, the accuser, have the burden of proof.

Unless you want to expose yourself as a liar, it’s YOUR responsibility to back up your accusations with facts.

Better start digging.

Lots of people order diet drinks because they are diabetic. I have seen it lots of times with senior citizens. The area I live in has a very large senior population, and diet drinks do a brisk business as a result. I don’t believe that she thought she was offsetting the rest of the meal, she’s smarter than that. Besides, the chocolate shake kills any mitigating circumstance.

You all know that when Oblivious gets backed into a corner, she starts screaming for proof. Then she attacks with statements like

“that black-and-white mentality that the far right wing media regularly feeds to you guys”

The Washington Post is now right wing media?
Proof that she can’t wiggle out of this one when she starts calling the Post right wing!

Olivia, maybe where you come from, 1700 calories of fast food at one sitting is considered “moderation” or a “healthy” diet (whatever that is) or even a midnite snack. BUT, if the first lady, who really finally loves America, in public, doesn’t practice what she preaches, she is no better then her POS husband. And someone needs to call her on it. Or is this all whiteys, righties, and Bush’s fault too? It’s never her husbands fault. All bow down, and praise him, he, and by marriage she, ARE the perfect human beings.

So please post some more drivel on how the POTUS and FLOTUS are perfect. It is somebodies fault not theirs. We are all racists, sexist, morons, (pick one..or pick them all like the first lady does when she sees a restaurant menu) because we do not see their perfection.

******************************
I never said they were “perfect”—that’s just more of that black-and-white mentality that the far right wing media regularly feeds to you guys.

My point was that you’ll go to ridiculous extremes to smear YOUR First Lady, who isn’t even an elected official. And (sorry, Poppajoe, but this is the only way to put it!) that says more about YOUR hatred than it does about any real deficiencies in her behavior.

You also completely twisted what I said in my original post. I never claimed that 1600 (not 1700) calorie meals constitute “moderation” or a ‘healthy diet.” My point was that even dietitians agree that it’s okay to splurge every now and then, just so long as one’s regular diet is healthy, and combined with regular exercise.

Who are you to claim that you know better than they do?
