I am actually experiencing a new emotion: empathy for Michelle Obama. It's bad enough when an ordinary husband makes his wife look like a fool in public, but when the husband is the most visible man in America, the sting is all the more intense.

Yesterday, Michelle released the news that she is making a cameo appearance in a video featuring "a hip-hop song recorded to encourage kids from minority groups to take care of their bodies." AP via USA Today elaborates:

"In the video, Mrs. O talks briefly about launching Let's Move! and people's doubts about whether it will make a difference. Recently released new research, showing a reduction in obesity rates in some states, suggests the first lady's exhortations on healthy eating might be having an effect.(snip)

It's a first-lady first to turn up in a hip-hop video, but it's not Mrs. Obama's first brush with musical celebrity. She partnered with Obama fan Beyoncé in 2011 for a collaboration on a Move Your Body workout song for the Let's Move! campaign."

Quite clearly, Mrs. Obama has invested a great deal of emotion in her campaign to address the national obesity problem. The hip-hop video is particularly aimed at African-American children, a group which suffers even worse obesity rates than the rest of the American population. I have no doubt that this reality tears at the first lady's heart, and she really sees a mission for herself in saving children so dear to her from this fate.

I do admire Michelle Obama's considerable and successful effort to control her own weight through diet and exercise. It cannot be easy, and it is a burden that never ends for those cursed with a body type prone to add weight in visible places. Every day, you have to do the exercise regimen. And every meal, you have to decline those delicious fatty items that seem ubiquitous. It is a struggle, one I know first hand.

So what does her husband do, with the entire world watching?
Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner:

"It's only been three days, but President Obama has quickly settled into the vacation diet on Martha's Vineyard. But don't tell the first lady.

During a rainy day on Tuesday, he traveled to Nancy's in scenic Oak Bluffs for a fried lunch. According to the pool report:'POTUS's food order at Nancy's was fried shrimp, fried oysters, onion rings and french fries.'

Obviously not on the lunch trip was first lady Michelle Obama, the first family's fitness buff."

Maybe the exciting Martha's Vineyard social whirl the Obamas experience left them too tired last night to talk over them humiliation inflicted on Michelle. But I doubt very much that she will remain silent very long. She doesn't seem like the sort of person who successfully bottles up emotions for extended periods.

I can tell you this: I would not want Michelle Obama mad at me. I hope the president doesn't make any important decisions today.

Obama occasionally eats hamburgers and fries out. I don't think it's his regular diet so he splurges once in a while.
He probably get cravings for the fried stuff, like a lot of us.
He also excercises which helps to keep fit.
We know about every move because the press hounds every president in office.
How about when Bush choked on a pretzel? That didn't have to known to the world....really...how embarrassing .

So, not only are you concerned about what people do in their bedrooms, you also are worried about what other people eat.

Wow Tippy, if I didn't know better, I'd guess you were a bible thumpin zealot.

As usual, the point is totally lost on you.
It is the Obamas and their leftist cadre who "are worried about what other people eat."
The rules which they promote, however, never apply to themselves.

We don't. We care about his wookie screeching at us about what we eat and interfering in school lunch requirements.

I'll take this one tip.

I am not faulting Obama for eating french fries, did you actually read what he ordered? It is hypocritical to force schools to serve hummus, what kid likes that, sweet potato fries, when baked french fries aren't going to kill you. If my daughter buys lunch, I want her to eat it not go hungry with foods that I know she will not consume. There are regulations in menu planning that must be met; we didn't die from well balanced albeit sometimes a splurge from school lunches. Our kids will be thinner because they are throwing their lunches in the trash can.

If you do not like what your school district serves for lunch then maybe you should attend a school board meeting and bring it up, instead of just whining about those who do get involved.

My district didn't listen to the Wookie. The lunches in our schools are first class.

So what you are saying is that this is all much ado about nothing.

I agree. That's why I asked the tippy zealot why she cares about the President eating fried foods on vacation.

Oh, and why would you call the First Lady a "wookie"?

Is that one of your "colloquialisms" you're so fond of?

Or are you merely demonstrating your innate racist bigotry again?

Why did the left call Bush, "Chimpy McHitler" for eight years? Why did they call First Lady Laura Bush a "drunken murderer"?

But Pickapaco, that's not what I'm referring to.

I'm talking about the President gorging on fried foods while on vacation.

Nobody in their right mind cares a whit about it. He's not 400 pounds, wheezing after walking one block, like some republican east coast governors, ya know?

I swear, if the President farts in the bathroom you people have a fkn opinion about it.
