Sarah Palin Rips Michelle Obama, Decries First Lady's Efforts to Curb Childhood Obesity

by at . Comments

Sigh. Sarah Palin is back in the news again.

For whatever reason, the ex-Alaska Governor took First Lady Michelle Obama and her efforts to improve childhood nutrition to task on Laura Ingraham's radio show.

Carrie Fisher Pre-Weight Loss

We know conservatives believe in smaller government, and there are strong cases to be made for that philosophy. Attacking Michelle's nutrition initiative, though?

Sarah Palin is not a fan of Michelle Obama's anti-obesity efforts.

Of the First Lady, Palin told Ingraham that "I think she has got a different worldview and she is not hesitant at all to share what her worldview is."

As for Sarah Palin's worldview, no one can make sense of it, but she does use big words like "exceptionalism" in the rant against Michelle below:

"She encapsulated what her view of America is, I believe, unless she has evolved and things have changed in the last two years, but she said it on the campaign trail twice that it was the first time that she had been proud of her country when finally people were paying attention to Barack Obama."

"I think that's appalling. We can think of this infinite number of reasons to be proud of American exceptionalism and it baffles me that anybody would have that view and then allow that view to bleed over into policy."

"Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat."

"I'm going to be again criticized for bringing this up, but instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician's wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back, and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track."

Yes ... the government needs to "get off our back" for this silly "anti-obesity thing." Why encourage health when we can be as fat as we want! Freedom rules!

Aside from making it seem like nutrition is just some interest of Michelle, not a legitimate health issue that influences a host of others, should we do nothing?

Can't you encourage people to make smarter choices that benefit themselves and the public health system as a whole? How is that an evil federal takeover?

Choose your side:


People don't truly understand the risks of being overweight. Why do most want to lose weight? Most would say to look better. Looking better certainly is a benefit of losing weight, but this shouldn’t be the sole reason to lose weight. There is a 1000 pound gorilla in the room and it’s often ignored. Being overweight for a long period of time kills thousands of people each year.


This has nothing to do with Left wing, right wing, ape features, appearances, feminism, color or Marxism. Now that that's out the way The first lady makes a legitimate plea for nothing more than seeing Americans lead healthier lives. If someone wishes to attack her statement (which clearly has nothing to do with Marxism or trying to control people's decision in their family)then you are obviously a supreme idiot or self loathing or Anti-American. END OF STORY....


"Nobody's gonna tell me how to raise my kids or what to feed them!"
God, shut up and stop whinning!


Personally, I like Sarah Palin, she can be a bit abrasive and graphic at times, but I bet if she was president, people would definitely be back to work. I'm sure this world would be a more productive place to live in.


HA!!!Abe Lincoln would be turning in his grave if he seen the turmoil this country's in!! Democrats don't know how to create jobs? Bullshit, they know how, they just don't want to....It's called marxism, totalitarianism, socialism, pick one!


You know, the Republicans have done bad things in the past, but you can't knock them for wanting to put America back to work. The US is an industrious nation, and this current administration is trying to shoot this country to hell! It's sad when Michelle Obama beat out Sarah Palin in being a healthier nation, when the greatest concern in America is JOBS!!!!


michelle obama is a do nothing first lady and is not attractive nor does she know how to dress....her husband has been a joke and palin is an idiot who makes no sense when she talks.....


Go Sarah Palin and your family tooooo!!!
Millions of us are behind you!! Keep the liberals's so much fun!!!


Hey Michelle, you could use a diet yourself! while your at it...get that idiot if a husband of yours to drop the cigaretts...oh wait.. maybe he should increase the intake and make us all happier!


Yes, we are a fat nation. Very fat, in fact. While Ms. Obama is at it, she might get our federally funded disgusting, fat and salt laden school lunches banned. These lunches are very unhealthy and fat laden but so are so many of the children who eat them. That said, I will move on to Ms. Obama. What is all this I continually read attractive or pretty she is? Not by any traditional standards. Sure, she is tall/thin, but pretty? I think not.
