At a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, First Lady Michelle Obama announced the launch of the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign to end childhood obesity in the United States, an epidemic she said is costly and a threat to national security.
Obesity is a threat to national security? And here all this time I've been worried about TERRORISTS, when I should have been looking out for the fat kid next door!
Someone needs to do something to stop this threat! Oh, wait! Barack Hussein is on the job:
The ceremony, attended by many officials of President Barack Obama’s cabinet, followed the signing earlier in the day of a presidential memorandum establishing a task force to study the problem and make recommendations after 90 days.
So... I guess this 'task force' will recommend something other than 'eating healthy' and 'plenty of exercise'? Must be much more if it takes a whole 'task force' and 90 days!
“This isn’t like a disease where we’re still waiting for a cure to be discovered – we know the cure for this,” Obama said. “This isn’t like putting a man on the moon or inventing the Internet. It doesn’t take some stroke of genius or feat of technology.
WTF? So, we are going to pay a whole 'task force' for 90 days to tell us what we already know? This is crazy. How many jobs will this 'task force' create or save (other than their own)? At a time when American's are hurting, when the national debt is out of control, Barack is using hard-earned taxpayer money to fund his wife's pet projects.
It's nice to see Washington still has money to blow.
