The Facebook page includes a video from our First Couple talking about their effort. Michelle seems like maybe she’s not having a great day.
But their campaign against bullying is a good idea and the type of thing where leadership from our head of state and especially Mrs. Obama can make a real difference in terms of highlighting the problem so that it’s taken seriously.
Who among us hasn’t been bullied? Even bullies get bullied. It’s really traumatic for kids.
The concern here is that, as with Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” anti-obesity program – about which I was initially enthusiastic – this bullying operation will turn, under the supervision of the Obamas, into a new item in the federal budget that will vacuum up ever increasing amount so money to live and grow, and that new regulations will inevitably be on the way to govern our kids’ behavior.
