All in the name of childhood obesity, Michelle Obama has destroyed the school lunch program for healthy, outgoing kids! The schools force the fruits and vegetables while cutting down on other portions of the menu. They can't even have a sub sandwich anymore because the calories from the bread has too many calories. They have been replaced with wrap sandwiches that the kids don't like. These decisions need to be left to the individual schools or states that know the overall health of its students. Kids are now bringing their own lunches from home, stuffing their lockers with unhealthy snacks or just plain going to after school activities hungry. There are even reports that Michelle wants to tackle the items that they sell in the grocery store! She needs to focus on something more worthwhile .... and not that it really matters, I really don't like her new bangs.
Go on a taxpayer funded vacation again. Nice job strib of totaling up her little jaunts to Africa, and Europe.
Im going to guess not much, just like the first 4 years.
She will do alot... spend tax payer money... waste everyones time... and get upset about being and American!
The most racist first lady in history. Her quotes "now I can be proud of my country because they elected a black president; they're short little white guys deciding what women can do with their bodies".
At a couple million dollar budget, I would say more financial damage is what she is going to do. And that don't include the millions in vacations her and her husband have taken at our expense.

Otherwise you will continue to look petty.
Spend our money, tell people how they should live, and blame others for her husbands failures.

Why should the school lunch program serve sub-par foods? Do you realize that one third of US children are overweight or obese? We've systematically eliminated daily exercise from the schools, and taught the kids to love high-sugar, high-starch, high-fat foods because they're quick and cheap. You said they go to after school activities "hungry" because they won't eat healthy food. C'mon. These are kids. If they're really hungry, they'll eat the lunch. (That is, assuming you give them more than 10 minutes to do so.)
