Rats Part Of Growing Pains For Fresh Food Program At San Francisco Schools, Rat! The other white meat!
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.

President Obama gave a speech Friday about the debt ceiling debate and said he was ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work with Congress.
That sounded vaguely familiar so we did a little Googling. Turns out the President loves to roll up his sleeves. So does the First Lady. In fact, we suspect that it’s a genetic thing that has probably been passed down to Malia and Sasha.
Seems to us that the President could save a lot of time if he started wearing short sleeve shirts. Just imagine how much more productive he could be if he didn’t have to spend so time rolling up the sleeves on those neatly-starched long-sleeve dress shirts he usually wears.

“The American people sent us here to do the right thing, not for party but for country. So, we’re going to work together to get things done on their behalf. That’s the least that they should expect of us. Not the most that they should expect of us. I am ready to roll up my sleeves over the next several weeks and next several months. I know that people in both parties are ready to do that as well, and we will keep you updated on the progress that we’re making on these debt limit talks over the next several days. Thank you,” President Obama said today about the debt talks.
June 26, 2011
Today, for the official kick off of United We Serve, members of my administration have fanned out across America to participate in service events and encourage all Americans to join them. The First Lady is rolling up her sleeves and getting to work too. But before she headed out today, she asked me to share this message with you.
April 4, 2011
Jay Carney, White House press secretary, told reporters that Mr Obama “remains confident that if we, together, roll up our sleeves and get to work very quickly we can find a compromise.”
January 28, 2011
“We’ve got a lot of work to do, and I’m rolling up my sleeves to get that work done,” Michelle Obama said. “And we’ll cross that other bridge when we get there.”
December 4, 2010
President Barack Obama said Saturday that he’s ready “to roll up my sleeves”and work with congressional leaders on a tax cut deal before rates are set to rise on Jan. 1.
October 25, 2010
Obama said Democrats need to have “a proper and appropriate sense of humility” about what they can accomplish without Republican support, but he also said Republicans should “roll up their sleeves and get to work.”
Sept 7, 2010
Whenever times have seemed at their worst, Americans have been at their best. Because it is in those times when we roll up our sleeves and remember that we will rise or fall together – as one nation, and one people. That’s the spirit that started the labor movement.
July 30, 2010
Obama said that education reform is a top priority because the “status quo is morally inexcusable, it’s economically indefensible, and all of us are going to have to roll up our sleeves to change it.”
April 29, 2010
“It’s so good that everybody has made a commitment to step out of our tea dresses and away from the crystal and to roll up our sleeves and be ready to paint and to get a little dirty,” said [Michelle] Obama, who arrived wearing canvas low-top sneakers and with her sleeves rolled up.
We hate to say this, but our faith in human nature has been shattered. Again.
If you can’t trust lying, cheating former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey, who can you trust?
Politico.com has the story:
First lady Michelle Obama’s office on Tuesday quickly shot down the suggestion that she has ever publicly voiced support for same-sex marriage, a policy her husband opposes even as the left pressures him to take a stand.
“Mrs. Obama has never made any public statements about same-sex marriage,” her communications director, Kristina Schake, said in an email to POLITICO.
The response comes after former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, a Democrat, suggested Monday night on CNN that Barack and Michelle Obama may not have the same opinion about gay marriage. McGreevey said of the president: “If he could only listen to Michelle more often” when it comes to his stance on same-sex marriage.
He should listen to Michelle more often? For god’s sake, Governor McGreevey, we’re pretty sure that not listening to Michelle is not an option for the poor man.
Last thing he wants is to be the recipient of one of her patented death glares.
Good thing Michelle Obama is a liberal Democrat. Otherwise the media would be reading her emails and calling her a fascistic racist hypocrite.
The Washington Examiner gives us a taste:
… First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by the University of Cape Town for an event with young people. She told the audience how she came from modest circumstances and was able to attend top schools and build a career at a big law firm, saying they too can achieve their dreams if they try hard enough.
We’ve heard America is a mean country. It’s not nearly as easy for talentlesss, lazy whiners to get rich as it should be. Moochy and Barry are the exceptions. But we digress.
…one young person in the audience asked Mrs. Obama, who has devoted much of her time in the White House to promoting nutrition and healthy eating, what her favorite foods are.
Obama mentioned Indian food, and then Mexican food, and then said: “No, if I picked one favorite, favorite food, it’s French fries.” The audience began to laugh. …”I can’t stop eating them.” As the students laughed more, the First Lady quickly returned to her role as advocate of health eating. “But eat your vegetables,” she said, to still more laughs. “And exercise.”
Lefty trans-fat heads are exploding as we speak. Oh, sorry, Michelle Obama said those words, not Michele Bachmann, so cooler fatheads prevail.
If we’re not mistaken those giggling South African kids were laughing at her, not with her. Us, too.

We were confused when we saw the words “Michelle Obama” and “Fat Cakes” in the same headline. We thought the latter was a nickname for the former, but we were wrong.
First Lady Michelle Obama visited a restaurant in Botswana village and began chowing down on French fries and a local delicacy called fat cakes like that night’s dinner was an unachievable dream.
Of course, this was a direct violation of the nanny state food rules she laid out for the rest of us, but that matters now because she is, after all, Michelle Antoinette and we are the little people.
“Let them eat fat cakes.”
In a recent interview with a highly regime-friendly news network First Lady Michelle Antoinette expressed considerable gratitude for the help they’ve been given by the media.
NewsBusters busts this news:
First Lady: You know, it’s — we’re — we’re ready. You know, our children, you know, could care less about what we’re doing. We work hard to do that. And…
Curnow: How do you do it?
First Lady: Well, we — fortunately we have help from the media. And I — I have to say this, that I’m very grateful for the support and kindness that we’ve gotten, and people have respected their privacy. And in that way, I think, you know, no matter what people may feel about my husband’s policies or what have you, they care about children. And that’s been good — good to see.
Granted the help she was referring to was the media’s hands off approach to the Obama children.
But before we are too quick to dismiss the value of the media’s kindness to children, let’s take a moment to consider how they’ve treated a couple of kids named Bristol and Trig.

It’s the kind of thing that will go down in family lore. “Look. There’s Grandpa Administrator with the First Lady.” Or “Back in 2011, your Uncle Editor was lucky enough to have this photo taken with Michelle Antoinette.”
Ahhh, memories, misty watercolor memories of the way we were. Surely you understand and share our sense of excitement.
The Daily Caller has the details:
If Barack Obama’s worried about finding enough cash for his 2012 election campaign, he needn’t be — his wife’s got it covered.
The First Lady charged lucky — and wealthy — bidders a whopping $10,000 to have their photograph taken with her at a fundraising luncheon today in Los Angeles.
With 500 attendees, it means Michelle Obama could have netted up to $5 million just for smiling at the camera, on top of the $1,000 each person paid per plate.
Just one problem. How are they going to get someone as bitter and angry as the First Lady to smile 500 times?

Extemporaneous is not a word often used in the Obama White House. President Obama’s over-reliance on Teleprompters makes it look like he’s watching a tennis match when he gives a speech. Now his inability to speak in public without those trusty devices seems to have rubbed off on the First Lady.
Politico reveals the details:
In a Newsweek profile published Sunday, the first lady’s staff members said the first lady will “spend hours and even days preparing for one appearance,” according to the article.
For major speeches, like a commencement address at West Point, Obama will edit drafts by hand, according to the magazine. “Staff will then drag a lectern into her office, where she will rehearse the speech with a teleprompter for days,” it said.
“She demands a lot of herself,” David Axelrod, President Obama’s former senior adviser, told the publication.
Well, that’s one way of putting it. The less charitable among us might say, “She has no confidence in herself.”
Monday was a very good day for Michelle Obama. OK, well, it wasn’t actually all that good for Michelle, but it was an excellent day for snarky bloggers with juvenile senses of humor. And that pretty much pegs us.
Just as the Obamas stepped off Air Force One in Dublin, the wild Irish winds kicked up and did very strange things to the First Lady’s hair.
Where have we seen that style before? we asked ourselves. Then, suddenly, we realized that those pesky breezes had transformed the First Lady into Ed Grimley, the Saturday Night Live character played by Martin Short back in the mid-80s.
Here’s Ed dancing to Hungarian Dance No. 5 in G Minor composed by Johannes Brahms.
Go ahead. Try to tell us the hair style isn’t identical. And maybe the dancing style, too.
We stand 100% behind Michelle Obama, which doesn’t exactly give us the best point of view.
A couple weeks ago the President said, “You do not want to be between Michelle and tamales.” Monday we learned what he meant.
The President’s limo, known as “The Beast”, bottomed out and got stuck in an Irish driveway. Some observers said it looked like the suspension collapsed.
We are too classy here at IHateTheMedia.com make any connection between Obama’s comment and Monday’s car problems just to get a cheap laugh. Far too classy.
Maybe it’s just us, but we’d have a lot more confidence in someone who wants to fundamentally change America if he were willing to put his money where his mouth is.
We learned earlier this week that President Obama’s personal wealth has exploded in the last five years and that he now be worth as much as $15 million dollars. Those same financial disclosure forms show that he’s willing to make short-term investments in the American economy, but not long-term? Not so much.
CNS News has the speculative specifics:
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama own between $2.1 million and $10.25 million in U.S. Treasury securities, according to the president’s financial disclosure form released yesterday.
But all of that money is invested in short-term U.S. Treasury bills and intermediate-term U.S. Treasury notes. None is in long-term U.S. Treasury bonds.
By definition, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, Treasury “bills” mature in one year or less, Treasury “notes” mature in terms of 2 to 10 years, and Treasury “bonds” mature in 30 years.
U.S. Treasury bonds pay a higher interest rate than the shorter-term Treasury notes and bills, but they also carry a higher risk of their value being eroded by inflation.
…As listed on page 3 of the disclosure, the president and first lady own three blocs of U.S. Treasury securities. They own a bloc of short-term Treasury bills worth between $100,001 and $250,000 in a SEP/IRA. They own a much larger bloc of short-term Treasury bills worth between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 that is not in an IRA. And they own a bloc of intermediate-term Treasury notes worth between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000.
Warren Buffett always says, “Invest in what you know.” It seems clear that Barack Obama knows his policies are long-term losers.

We’re just trying to imagine the response if we had said something like that about Mrs. Editor and Mrs. Administrator. Let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty.
ABC News has the story of our brave President putting himself in harm’s way:
President and Mrs. Obama welcomed a big crowd to the White House for a Cinco de Mayo reception in the East Room. Hispanic politicians, Hispanic Americans serving in the Obama administration, and members of a commission on exploring the creating of a new national museum of the American Latino were among those in attendance.…The crowd learned a little tidbit about the first lady, courtesy of her husband.
Said Obama: “I asked Michelle the other day, I said, ‘What’s your favorite food’ — because we were sitting around with the girls. She said, ‘Ah, Mexican food.’”
“You do not want to be between Michelle and a tamale,” joked the president. “It’s true. It’s true. But she’s moving, though, so she can afford to have as many tamales as she wants,” said Obama in a nod to his wife’s “Let’s Move” healthy campaign.
Question of the day: Which is more dangerous – standing between Michelle and a tamale or standing between Barack and a TV camera.
Eithe way, you’re liable to get trampled.

One would think the folks at the White House would have full plates these days what with three wars, impending economic implosion, terrorism and the like.
Nevertheless, someone in the White House found time to complain to a small California newspaper about a throwaway comment about Michelle Antoinette buried in an article about the Marine One helicopter.
The Daily Caller has the details:
… Gina Channell-Allen, president of the Pleasanton Weekly in Pleasanton, California, said that her paper “received a call from the White House asking us to take out part of the story because it reflected poorly on the First Lady.”
The story in question was a soft feature about Marine One titled, “Inside Marine One, President Obama’s helicopter,” that ran in the paper on April 20. Pleasanton staffer Amory Gutierrez “didn’t get to ride in ‘Marine One,’” she wrote in her story, “but I did get the VIP tour and took photographs of the otherwise unseen aircraft.”
She also wrote a sentence that the White House thought made FLOTUS look snooty.
“Basically the reporter said that the First Lady didn’t speak to the pilots but acknowledged them by making eye contact,” Allen wrote in her email.
Allen says she “complied” with the White House’s request “because it was not worth making a fuss over.”
She added, “I thought it was interesting, though, that the [White House] was concerned enough about image to contact a little weekly paper in Pleasanton.”
The Pleasanton Weekly should consider itself lucky that the administration chose to handle this with a phone call from the White House. It could easily have been a phone call from the IRS.

And when we say gag, you have your choice of definitions. If she was making a joke, gag means one thing. If she’s serious, gag has a completely different meaning.
Here’s a clip from Monday’s The View in which the hens gather to cluck over Michelle Obama and the poor, unfortunate woman who’s married to Joe Biden.
“I want to embrace the country that I love,” Michelle babbled. “The country that I know is positive and fair and there’s so much of that out there, that’s it very easy to kind of push the other stuff aside and not take it in. It’s easier than you’d imagine.”
That’s not fair, Michelle. Don’t keep us in suspense any longer. Which country is it?
This is a shot of the Obama clan being greeted in Brazil by Brazilian President Whoever. Or some other Brazilian woman. We’re really not sure.
BigFurHat, world-renowned fashionisto over at iOwnTheWorld.com, said, “I’m convinced Mooshell is color blind, and I don’t mean she’s a non-racist.”
The media says Michelle is the new Jackie Kennedy and we say, “Could be.” After all, the former First Lady hasn’t been seen wearing anything fashionable since early 1994, either.
We’re simple guys here at IHateTheMedia.com. So simple that we didn’t even know they made purses that cost $1000 nor the difference between a purse and a tote.
WhiteHouseDossier.com has the hilarious details:
It’s a Reed Krakoff two-tone ribboned large tote, and you can get it at Mr. Krakoff’s website for $990, plus shipping I guess. But we don’t worry about shipping. Fedex it, in fact.
No wait a second, you can’t get it, because it’s already sold out, at least in the teal color she got.
Love it with the blue slippers, BTW. It just WORKS, okay?
Of course, Michelle has asked ordinary Americans to sacrifice and this is her way of showing that she can sacrifice, too. After all, she’s not wearing her $2500 second hand dress nor her $540 tennis shoes.
Feeling snubbed by Prince William and Kate, Michelle? IHateTheMedia.com has the solution.
The First Lady is obviously a bit miffed that the President and she were not invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. And the simple fact is that IHateTheMedia.com couldn’t just sit by and watch her heartbreak. So we took action.
The Daily Telegraph UK has the details:
BLANK invitations to the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton available on the black market have sparked security concerns ahead of the April 29 ceremony.
A man claiming to work for the printing firm which produced the genuine invitations offered a journalist a blank copy, demanding STG2000 ($3200) and adding that he could supply several more.
A reporter for the London newspaper, The Mail on Sunday, met the man last week and was shown an invitation almost identical to the genuine document which went on show for the media when the invitations were sent, more than a week ago. The only difference between the genuine and fake invitation is that the black market version is missing two dotted lines where the names of guests are written by hand.
We’ve taken the liberty of printing your names on a copy of the blank invitation, Michelle. All you need to do is print this page on a piece of nice, official looking piece of paper, cut out the invitation, and then head for London.
We’re pretty sure it’ll work, Michelle. Because you belong at that wedding, damn it. You belong.

Politico is on drugs. They ran a story this weekend that said conservatives are finally beginning to attack Michelle Obama.
Finally? You insult us, Politico. We’ve been making fun of this second rate First Lady since day three. And the only reason we didn’t make fun of her on days one and two is that IHateTheMedia.com didn’t go live until three days after the inauguration.
Here’s how Politico explained its bizarre revelation:
Except for an ill-advised trip to an expensive Spanish resort last summer, Michelle Obama has escaped much of the criticism that has been directed at her husband, keeping a relatively low-profile while primarily focusing on childhood obesity, military families and the arts.
During her first two years in the White House, she was more Laura Bush rather than Hillary Clinton, but that has begun to change. Now, for conservative critics, it is open season on the first lady.
Obama’s admonishments on nutrition and advice on breastfeeding are examples of big government “nanny state” intrusion according to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.); her eating habits are evidence of her hypocrisy, according to Rush Limbaugh; her athletic physique is something to be lampooned on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website, which posted a cartoon showing her as overweight and eating a plate full of hamburgers.
Puh-leeze, Politico. We can’t speak for other reporters nor other blogs, but Michelle Obama is what the military would call “a target rich environment.” We’re proud to say we’ve lampooned the media’s obsession with the First Lady, her god awful sense of fashion, her ass, her nanny statism, her pomposity, her extravagant taste in vacations and fashion, her good-for-thee-but-not-for-me attitude, and dozens of other offensive things she’s said and done.
Here’s proof. Every story we’ve done on the second rate First Lady since Barack Obama was inaugurated. All 67 of them in chronological order.
Any other questions, Politico?

Michelle Obama waiting at mailbox for a royal wedding invitation that’s never going to arrive
It’s sad, really. Poor Michelle Antoinette Obama is having a bit of difficulty accepting the fact that she’s been snubbed by real royalty.
It’s sad, really. Poor Michelle Antoinette is having a bit of difficulty accepting the fact that she’s been snubbed by real royalty. But forsooth, verily, snubbething is what they have done. Pip, pip, cheerio. (Admit it, you thought we were British there for a moment, didn’t you?)
The Daily Telegraph UK reports the regal repudiation:
Even after it was clear that Prince William and Kate Middleton would not be sending a wedding invitation to the White House, Michelle Obama still appears not to have given up hope.
“If I get invited, I’ll go,” the First Lady said on the Live With Regis and Kelly Show on American television. She conceded, however, that, as things stand, she had not been invited.
Her comments are likely to exasperate senior courtiers, who — as I reported on Nov 14 last year — had to put off naming the wedding date until a week after announcing the engagement because White House officials were not at first certain when Barack Obama and his wife would make their first state visit to Britain.
Obama’s men, adamant that the two events should not clash, subsequently agreed May 24 to 26, almost a month after the royal wedding, as the dates for his visit.
Don’t they know she is the new American royalty? Have they not heard that she’s called Michelle Antoinette? Not seen her regal demeanor? Not noticed her imperial attitude?
She’s one of them, damn it, and it hurts not to be accepted.

We’re a bit old school here at IHatetheMedia.com. So much so that, until recently, we didn’t realize there were any barriers to breastfeeding. You know, once the breasts and an appetite had been provided for. But apparently there are and Her Imperial Majesty Michelle Antoinette is planning on milking it for all it’s worth.
Politics Daily has exposed the subject:
First lady Michelle Obama will be speaking out to remove barriers to breastfeeding, Politics Daily has learned, throwing the spotlight on nursing as a way to reduce childhood obesity.
This comes as the Obama administration in the past year has made several moves to encourage breastfeeding — including a push for more flexible workplace rules and an Internal Revenue Service ruling on Thursday that breast pumps and other nursing supplies qualify for tax breaks.
The article goes on for a bit after that. But you know the old phrase, anything more than a mouthful is wasted.
We’re not entirely sure what a “push for more flexible workplace rules” will look like. Perhaps instead of cubicles companies will have to provide lactating females with more private accommodations. These accommodations might very well come to be affectionately known as Boobicles. But only until HR gets involved.
In any case we cannot help but marvel at the moxie of this administration. Not content with their voters figuratively suckling at the government tit, they’ve gone off and found a way to subsidize the real thing.

Aaaarrrrrggggghhh! That’s the sound Howard Dean made when he lost the Iowa caucus and the sound we make every time we see Michelle Obama referred to as a fashion icon.
Last week’s Time magazine squeezed that horrid noise out of us again by publishing yet another article on the tres fashionable Michelle Obama. This one’s written by Kate Betts, who has, coincidentally, written a new book called Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style.
Given her widespread reputation as one of the most stylish women ever to inhabit the White House, you might think Michelle Obama automatically belongs in the Madison-Kennedy lineage. But her background argues differently. No one can claim that Michelle Obama doesn’t know what it’s like to work or that she entered marriage because she didn’t get an education and lacked economic power of her own. It is plain that she has learned as much if not more from the example of Hillary Clinton as from the example of Jackie Kennedy.
What makes Obama exceptional is that she seems so at home in both camps. So at home that the whole debate about style and substance suddenly seems passé, an anachronism of the gender wars, a false dichotomy enforced by narrow-minded men and women at war with themselves. That Michelle Obama does not see style and substance as an either-or choice is a powerful statement that the underlying assumptions about women’s roles and images have changed. Embodying the confluence of substance and style, she has helped reconcile the long-standing antagonism between them. She has, in some sense, made them one and the same.
C’mon, Kate, any impartial observer would have to admit that Michelle Obama’s fashion sense is more akin to Teddy Kennedy’s than Jackie Kennedy’s.
We’ve looked through thousands of photos of Jackie Kennedy and we cannot find one – not one – in which she looks less stylish than Michelle Obama does in any of these photos.
We’ve chronicled the First Lady’s faux pas before, but Time and Kate force us to present this additional evidence.
