MEXICO CITY - Michelle Obama is on her first official, solo foreign trip as first lady, launching what aides call an international agenda invoking her considerable star power to engage the world's youth. Her first stop: Mexico City.

Mrs. Obama flew into Mexico late Tuesday after stopping in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to view the ruins three months after a massive earthquake killed an estimated 230,000 people and left more than 1 million homeless in the Caribbean nation.

Her visit to the Mexican capital Wednesday and Thursday is also part goodwill tour to highlight relations between the United States and its southern border ally. The first order of business Wednesday is a trip to Los Pinos, the residence of President Felipe Calderon, to meet privately with his wife, Margarita Zavala. The mission to Mexico book-ends Mrs. Obama's leading cause at home, a campaign against child obsesity .

she has had the opportunity to make a difference and aint done squat...at first it was helping military..then it was growning a garden....now its childhood obesitiy? she needs to decide and try to make a difference...

if she is truly concerned with childhood obesity...one place to start...the school lunch programs....stop doing school lunches with farms excess...that is the reason you have such fatty lunches....base the lunches on sound nutrional foods....not what is handy or cheap...bring back mother fucking pe.....how fucking simple is that...disconnect their sorry asses from computers and kick them outside...
