In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Michelle Lets Governors Gorge on 2,000 Calorie Dinner

The White House Sunday epically failed to practice what its first lady preaches, serving the nation’s governors a more than 2,000 calorie dinner even as Michelle Obama traverses the country promoting health eating.

While Michelle lectures children to cut out the fat and eat their vegetables unadorned with caloric sauces, she served the governors – who are in Washington for their annual meeting – a feast that included adipose-marbled steak, vegetables slathered with dairy enhancements, and dessert.

The White House has proposed mandating meals for elementary school kids that include none of these items, or anything like them. Here, for example, is the Wednesday lunch from a proposal on the White House website.

Chef’s salad: (1 cup romaine, .5 oz low-fat mozzarella, 1.5 oz grilled chicken) with whole wheat bread
Soft pretzel (2.5 oz)
Corn, cooked (1/2 cup)
Baby carrots, raw (1/4 cup)
Skim chocolate milk (8 oz)
Low fat ranch dressing (1.5 oz)
Low fat italian dressing (1.5 oz)

Here’s what the governors got:

Garden salad
Bread and butter
Ribeye steak 12 oz
Creamed spinach
Crab mac and cheese
Pear tart with ice cream
White wine

Based on conservative estimates of caloric totals for each of the items that found their way to the governors’ plates, and assuming consumption of a single glass of wine from the bottles that were placed on the tables, the total intake amounted to about 2,250 calories.

The recommended intake for an adult male during AN ENTIRE DAY is about 2,500 calories. For women, it’s about 2,000 calories.

I hope the White House included a note on its invitation to the governors to fast until dinner.

  1. I’m sure the Kobe beef and lobster are saved for their “friends”. The garbage they served the Governors probably came from the government run Senate dining room. Since the food is awful( Everyone eats in the privately run House dining room), there’s plenty of left-overs.

  2. Michelle Antoinette strikes again! Crab mac and cheese? LOL!!!! Yea, this is just your everyday meal at the defenders of the common man’s household. Now eat your baby carrots and your low fat diets like good peasants. Leave the real food for your betters….

      1. I thought what a crappy meal but I think she’s punishing the Gov’s because she had to stay in while in Aspen. That would be her food and
        drink equivalent to ———–.! I couldn’t fill in the blank for fear of making
        someone mad as I feel sure whatever I put would peeve off a bunch of

  3. The second largest school district in the country, LAUSD, is bringing back burgers and pizza! No more salads and brown rice! Thousands of entire entrees are thrown unopened into the cafeteria trash cans on a daily basis. Hunger-related ailments are rampant!

    Big Sister has spend in excess of $10 BILLION on this failed experiment to control the food supply of our kids. Not only that, but she uses the kids as a front to campaign on AF Two and take lavish vacationss. It also gives her an excuse to show up on every television network known man~ She is now the potato sack Queen!

    The MOOCH would have made a great prison matron – I can visualize her tossing those tin plates filled with break and beans through the prison bars!

  4. The Obamas feast while the rest of us eat dirt.

    Some are more equal than others. Two legs are better than four legs, and Amerika is crawling under the tyranny of this jackass.

  5. Mooch is creating her very own gulag by starving the kids with low calorie meals. Kids need calories and exercise. They need fat for brain development. Please can’t we get rid of these two nincompoops in November? They are so tiresome in their self righteousness and perfectness. Yeeeecccchhhh they are repulsive.

    1. You’re right, the following says it all:

      “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a
      citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the
      Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama
      presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a
      depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The
      problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere
      symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not
      blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
      The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a
      multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

  6. Anyway, didn’t she study to be a lawyer? What the heck is she doing trying to be a nutritionist? Also, doesn’t this low class tart know that you don’t drink white wine with steak? These two are an embarrassment to the USA.

  7. I’m sick and tired of this crap. If anyone believes for ONE second that the Obama’s are genuine and full of care for the American people, you’re an idiot. This is further proof, among other things. 2000 calories! Are they stupid? Did they think we wouldn’t notice? Has anyone seen the Plannedopolis videos? The ones that Agenda 21 has been pushing. I find it NO coincidence whatsoever that the government (using the Obama’s as their ventriloquist dummies) is pushing to limit everyone’s caloric intake and this Plannedopolis video talks about how GREAT life is when it’s all planned out for you…including calorie limits. Hell, they say in the video, “no, you can’t have steak. It’s not your birthday. Tee Hee!” Come on! Who’s ready to take them down? Let’s pick a day folks! I suggest either the 4th of July or the 5th of November!

      1. We should email them what all of us eat everyday in great detail including precise amounts of salt! Like I had 3 hotdogs home fries but
        I used duck fat chips for a bit of crunch. That should tide me over till
        mid afternoon tea. I don’t care for tea but just a bowl of clotted cream
        as I don’t like too much bread. Then dinner and midnight snack to plan
        breakfast thinking Eggs Benedict and coffee must go see how to make
        with Honey Baked ham and double the Holandaise for 6 eggs only me

  8. Hey, if the Republicans did not have so many Govs they would have had Kobe steak. However, she went for the Ribeye, mac & cheese, and creamed spinich for that GOP dominated bunch that does not support her husband. She wants them to literally have a change of hearts!/s

    1. A lot of African-American women have larger bottoms than white women. Is this a racist or chauvinist or misogynist remark? Check one. Or you could be just an ignorant male. Humm. Probably the later.

      1. Race card again? The racism accusations come so often and easily from weak minded little libturds that it has lost all meaning when it ACTUALLY occurs.

      1. I’m not saying Memememechelle is fat, but when Barry mounts Mooch for sex, the Secret Service straps a board across his backside first so he does not fall in to never be seen again.

        1. Did they get the idea from your husband Erica? You seem to have put some thought into this. I’m thinking personal experience on your part.Kudos on you and the Mr’s ingenuity

  9. Michelle Obama has stated that it is okay to occasionally indulge, just not every day. Very few people can stay on a perfect diet, and an occasional indulgence day is much more realistic for most of us.

  10. As any nutritionist will tell you it’s not what you eat every single day that determines your health and weight, but what you eat over a period of time. Otherwise we would have to skip Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter dinner and eat carrot sticks. This whole criticism is ridiculous. The first lady obviously isn’t fat and is very healthy, so what is the problem? God.

    1. Right. It was a special occasion.She could have fed them cottage cheese and carrot sticks and she would have been trashed for that. No win situation for her

    2. Earth to Susan-mooshel is huge, so huge in fact that she has running lights. The only reason she is health now is that WE are paying for all the lobster and steaks. Wait till January, back to the crap she wants us to eat.

    3. If Michelle isn’t fat, she certainly qualifies as hefty, except in the photo-shopped pictures in which the talents of digital artists move her somewhat toward the less hefty.

      She could have used this dinner to show how one dines well without a lot of fat. She chose not to walk her talk. Too bad, it would have given her some credibility and served as one of those “teachable moments” that the Obamas and their followers are always promoting.

    4. I would like to say that although we share the same name, my beliefs are very different from any Obamabot. Stop defending these arrogant people who are flaunting their excesses just to goad the American people. For what reason? Control of the populous. Ain’t gonna happen. These two have overstayed their welcome in our WH and their butts are getting the boot in November. This country is not an autocracy and they are not royalty.

  12. Chef’s salad: (1 cup romaine, .5 oz low-fat mozzarella, 1.5 oz grilled chicken) with whole wheat bread
    Soft pretzel (2.5 oz)
    Corn, cooked (1/2 cup)
    Baby carrots, raw (1/4 cup)
    Skim chocolate milk (8 oz)
    Low fat ranch dressing (1.5 oz)
    Low fat italian dressing (1.5 oz)

    Who died and made momo head nutritionist? This is a horrible school lunch. There isn’t enough protein to sustain a growing active child, let alone three starches, wheat bread, soft pretzel, and corn?? Banana? Nothing but carbs. The child that eats this will be starving in just a couple of hours.
    How about four ounce grilled chicken breast, green salad with shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes, and shredded cheddar cheese. Scratch the wheat bread and add a few croutons, green beans with seasoning to make them more appealing and so they don’t taste like grass from the yard, 1 medium sized Red Delicious Apple, Sugar free Jello cup, and skim milk. This lunch will sustain a child until he/she is finished with classes for the day and provide enough protein for proper growth and brain development.
    In other words momo needs to mind her own business!

  13. “Based on conservative estimates of caloric totals for each of the items”

    Translation: This article is one great big steaming pile of made-up bullsh*t. Perhaps it was a 2000 calorie meal . . . if the diners poured creamy blue-cheese dressing on their salads, and if their steaks were 16 ounces big! But if they were served a lower-calorie dressing and a 6 ounce steak, the meal described above could easily be closer to 1000 calories.

    Which goes to prove: Bias can rear its ugly head in any place! This website, whose biases are clear from the language used, chose to create this “controversy” out of whole cloth. Shame on you all.

  14. Moochelle, just can’t help herself………do as I say, not as I do…
    Practically every picture of her is ‘either ‘lecturing’ others, or stuffing her pie-hole’………

  15. I was looking at the NY Times article about this. I also watched CNN and MSNBC where they talked extensively about Ms. Obama’s obvious “do as I say and not as I do” actions.

    No wait, scratch that. It was no where to be found.

  16. She belongs to the Big Butt Sisterhood Number 555. She loves to share her diet tips. I encourage her program to move. I say, “Yes, Michelle. Please move. Please move back to Chicago and take hubby with you.”

  17. Great selection of foods, for the pre “economic collapse” last governors meal. If i was invited, the only thing missing was the lobster tail with whipped butter.

  18. Just remember, these are ‘do as I say, not as I do’ kind of people. So remember, she can tell you what to do but you are not allowed to question the great one and his handler.

      1. This is a silly article. My girls never have junk food, but I eat it from time to time. And schools should serve healthy choices. If all you have are healthy options, it’s a lot easier to pick them. If I had fries and cheeseburgers to choose from, I would too.

  19. Just cancelled my landline service today. Told them it was a matter of economics. Told them, until current WH occupant is removed there will be no job growth, no real economic growth, no optimism, nothing. Maybe the aggregate behaviors of consumers nationwide will convince business to either get off the fence and fight to remove barry or, for those who are engaged, to be vocal about his removal, just as barry is vocal about his destruction. Might as well take the gloves off now and declare war on prezbo. After all, he started it and is making it no secret about his plans. Imagine that, the majority of U.S. citizens at war with their president. Amazing guy that soetoro.

      1. Judging from your posts, do you ever stake out a position or just spend your energy critiquing those who do comment. I suppose you support obama. Maybe you can enlighten all of us and tell us where, if fully enacted, his policies will put all of us in 10 years. If you are on board certainly you have the figured out. Shed the light great one.

        1. SANITY is what the president provides.Respect of the world again.The economy is turning around.A mess like he inherited doesn’t get turned around over night.I know you don’t like to hear that because it doesn’t work with your narrative. I still have a job at GM because of his policies.You know whos would have let us go under. The domino effect of that for OUR country would have been devastating. Of course that’s what the Repubs wanted. The country to go down the tubes so their philosophy would have a leg to stand on. ‘

          1. Their nasty intrusion into our reproductive health and creepy obsession with women’s sexual rights is the ultimate government intrusion. We need to be protected from them.That is where President Obama stands up for us yet again.

          2. Yes the intrusion to every woman’s reproductive system and
            talking about us in a herd mentality is very disturbing. I don’t
            like to talk to my Dr much less be talked about by a bunch of
            men and Barry’s hormonal bunch of followers. Keep your
            nose out of my private life entirely!

          3. Anyone still defending this tyrant after the mess he has made of this country and all his unconstitutional acts is either a zombie or a taker. Ain’t nobody with a lick of sense in their head who is buying one word of your screed.

  20. And right after she fed the white folks she went out and had ribs. Of course, if any governor had tried to bring their own lunch they would have been stopped at the door and given chicken nuggets. In case anyone is offended by my remarks I will play back some of mooshel’s remarks. Now my remarks don’t sound so racist do they

  21. Seems to me like the obama’s want to save all of the good foods for themsepves by telling the entire country u shouldnt be eating the things that the obama’s clearly induldge on, probably even daily with every meal.
    What can you do i guess once a hipacrit always a hipacrit.

  22. I’m sick and tired of these fascist pigs of the left ramming THEIR beliefs down OUR throats. I’m going to eat WHATEVER in the hell I want to and I’m going to feed MY CHILD whatever in the hell I want to as well. You big nanny state government radical left wing fascists can go F yourselves sideways.

    1. We feel the same way about Santorum,Romney and their ilk trying to force their Victorian era ideology down our throats.You right wingers can dish it out but you sure can’t take it.

      1. Nobody is trying to force anything on you or anyone else, it’s called respecting the Constitution, maybe you’ve heard of it, our country was founded on that it sometime when you’re not drinking the kool-aid.

        1. ,Really Jessie. Drinking the kool aid again?That’s it?Read the Constitution? Read it a number of times over the years.The real one. Not your alt universe version.Night all.Sweet dreams.

  23. Sounds tasty – I’d eat it, kept the crab mac – ugh! HAM and Mac yes…who puts fish in mac/cheese – double ugh!

    That said, no one said the Govenors HAVE TO eat everything on their plate.

    That would be as stupid as super sizing every meal to prove a point or kinda like doing a survey to find out if people want more or less money. Some things are just common sense w/o the brilliance of a study.

    1. The real question is why are they spending taxpayer’s money to go to Washington and more taxpayer’s money by eating at the White House? With the technology available now, face to face meetings aren’t necessary, especially in our poor economic climate.

      1. Lanie,

        I agree with your logic. But apparently the government doesn’t recognize the need to be thrifty – it’s always the other guy that’s wasting money.

  24. Rib eye steak… with white wine? WTF?! Maybe to go with the crab mac n’ cheese? This sounds like a disgusting meal. Seriously though, that the Obamas are hyprocritical, do as I say not as I do, champagne socialists, is not news to anybody who’s been paying attention…

  25. Wait until the day when the government decides for us what food will be available. Prior to that it will force food manufacturer’s to place graphic, colored pictures of diseased organs and dead people on products which it deems cause obesity, the government’s new scam to control our food supply and food choices, as it has mandated for tobacco products beginning in October.
