    What is wrong with a First Lady ... or any other person of prominence ... encouraging healthy habits in children?

    I've been having trouble with my fellow conservatives having trouble with this. Can someone set me straight on why I should be concerned?

    Beats me, I've certainly wondered the same.

    When I compared it to President Kennedy's Physical Fitness Awards, I got told that was different - but nobody had any reason why.

    That wasn't on this board.

    Nobody is perfect. However she seems fit to me. Why do you suggest she doesn't lead by example? A couple of hamburgers or large meals eaten in public? Or something more chronic? Or ... ?

    I have no Problem with the idea. It's just when I hear her talk about it. She sounds so damn Condescending, and Arrogant like her Husband. Just makes me not want to listen anymore.

    Who perceive it as ‘nanny state-ism,’ government meddling, government interference, government intrusion, big government, bad government, all government is big and bad…etc…

    Almost all first ladies adopt some project during their husband's terms of office. Well I don't think Hillary did but she was too busy trying to be co-president.

    Michelle happened to choose a project for child nutrition. I don't have a problem with her choosing that particular project. Maybe it is because she does struggle with weight gain, etc. and that is where her heart lies. I won't presume to judge her. It is a worthy focus and let's give her props for at least putting it out there.

    As for what's wrong with Michelle--which I initially expected this thread to be about :)--I do wish the first lady had a bit more fashion sense, but oh well. In the grand scheme of things, who will care ten or fifty or a hundred years from now?
