SAY WHAT?!? Michelle Obama: Child Obesity a ‘National Security Threat’;

Michelle Obama is set to make a major announcement today: fat children are a “national security threat.” The announcement is part of prepared remarks for a news conference on the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act slated for Monday morning.

From Politico:

First Lady Michelle Obama plans to warn in remarks Monday that the nation is seeing “a groundswell of support” for curbing childhood obesity, and she is unveiling new ammunition from current and retired military leaders.

“[M]ilitary leaders … tell us that when more than one in four young people are unqualified for military service because of their weight,” the first lady says in prepared remarks, “childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well.”

The remarks, as given during the bill’s signing, are above:


  1. I think whenever you overplay your hand and over-politicize an issue it tends to get kind of funny and sometimes downright silly; which is the inspiration for this video "Michelle Obama warns: Beware of Weapons of Mass Consumption!":

  2. Michelle thinks that we are stupid.. she thinks that because she doesn't have a clue, neither do we... but she especially thinks that the liars that are now running our nation have pulled the wool over our eyes.. well, Michelle is wrong... we do things legally so we have to wait for the NEXT election...but we WILLL get the LIARS out of Washington DC..
    and then Michelle will finally realize how lucky she was to live in America because they will survive,,, unlike so many other tyrannical dictators in history.
    God Bless America...
