The ceremonial lunch President Obama and his former congressional colleagues are eating Monday tops out at 3,000 calories, according to a website that has tallied up the luxurious menu of lobster, bison and apple pie.

HealthyFoodRecipe.net posted the full menu, complete with its calorie count, and said it was “unsatisfactory” to see such an unhealthy spread, given first lady Michelle Obama’s push for healthier eating.

WH inaugural luncheon: 3000 calories?

Do as we say, not as we do. Unlike some others, I have no problem with the First Lady’s efforts to push for awareness of the health choices of our food — as long as the “awareness” doesn’t turn into mandates and legislation, or in edicts like the Big Apple’s Big Gulp ban. But if one wants to impress upon others the need to watch caloric and fat intake, shouldn’t that mean a personal demonstration of restraint? Apparently not:

"Monday’s inauguration of President Barack Obama will be filled with pomp, circumstance, and a jam-packed schedule of invite-only events where the president and Mrs. Obama are the guests of honor. And it all starts with the Inaugural Luncheon.

This year’s luncheon is a bit on the indulgent side, admittedly. We first checked out the menu with excitement, but as we read through the three courses our smiles quickly turned to frowns, not at the extravagance of the dishes but their sky-high calorie counts.

One full serving is more than 3,000 calories! Lobster in clam chowder sauce, grilled bison and a finish of rich apple pie with homemade ice cream take no time to zip past a single day’s calorie reserve.CalorieCount.com ‘s Rachel Berman, RD, CSR, CDN – who compiled this year’s Inaugural Luncheon nutritional statistics – was a little shocked by the numbers, too, and felt that although it’s fine and even healthy to treat ourselves once in a while, the figures were a bit too to justify.

“It’s OK to indulge every once in awhile and if the Presidential Inauguration isn’t a special, celebratory occasion to do so, I don’t know what is,” she said.“However, in light of the first lady’s obesity initiatives and the fact that the menu was made public, it was definitely a missed opportunity for nutrition education"

. WHY THE FREAK did they even feel that they HAD to SHARE the Menu? THAT'S what is wrong with America today..Share this and that..EVEN by agreeing to certain online policies.. YOU are giving permission to third parties to use your info. Ya know during the 50's.
Politics were not publicly put out there to be scrutinized by your average American citizen. It seems THAT everything is Public anymore.. AND Demands your attention and opinions.. Privacy..is becoming Obsolete.
