    How nice of the "Queen Bee" to give us tips on grocery shopping, especially considering over 45 million Americans are on food stamps! Talk about out of touch!

    Evidently, Queen Michelle doesn't realize the prices of groceries keep going up (since she is well fed on our tax dollars and doesn't see people in the real world struggling just to feed their families because her husband has helped to wreck our economy and millions are out of work). And, evidently the Queen doesn't realize that produce and fruit (especially fruit) and meat that she's pushing get to be pretty pricey on tight budgets for families, and the cheapest foods that stretch the furthest are those nasty things called carbohydrates - things like Ramen noodles, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, etc. And canned tuna in oil.

    Good heavens, I wonder how generations of Americans have managed to grocery shop before Michelle got self appointed to be the Mother Superior of all of us lowly beings. What a snob.

    Michelle Obama Presents Course: 'Supermarket Shopping 101'


    LE, I think you're being a bit harsh. After all, isn't it reasonable that she find something to do to feel superior to the masses while The One is gone golfing?

    Well, that's not all.

    Back in July:

    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/mor...d-mark-next-chapter-michelle-obamas-lets-move


    Now in addition to her great revamped school lunch program in which billions of dollars of food is being thrown away in school cafeteria garbage cans (paid for by our tax dollars) because the kids won't eat it - now we have Michelle barging in on local governments. I'm sure the seniors and others who have to park their cars 4-6 blocks away will be thrilled with this idea, not to mention the patrol cars and firefighters. We all know that these public places are breeding grounds for gangs hanging out, drugs, perverts, and more.

    This woman wasn't on the Obama-Biden ticket as I recall, but assumes she has the "right" to intrude in our lives. Disgusting.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, she's such a hypocrite - she stuffs her face with lobster and fattening fries, etc., all the while condescending to the sheeple what they should or should not eat !!

    Ah yes, ya gotta love the Democrats.

    One the one hand:
    "Get out of my bedroom!"

    On the other hand:
    "Lemme take a look in your refrigerator. Hey, you shouldn't have that!"

    I see we have nothing to attack the President with, so we worry over shopping tips from the first lady. :laugh: What does this have to do with the problems facing the nation?

    She is very correct that the outside of the grocery store is the healthiest and even on a budget, you can still primarily shop there. It is better for you than processed carbs and if some would learn that, they wouldn't need healthcare. I think it's great that she has addressed the issue. As for the junk food, just by looking at the family, I can guess that they don't eat that often.

    Don't you know Ann that this story is vital to the future of America and an integral factor in this election? This is the real meat of the 2012 election.

    Actually I have seen many well founded criticisms of this admin made right here on this board and else where. This is just one of many.
