Almost as Bad as Biden: Michelle Obama

Believe it or not, Michelle Obama is taking a run at Biden's gaffe-a-minute record.

At yesterday’s Harvest Party for the politically exploited local school children, Michelle Obama continually showcased how ill-prepared she is to pontificate on diet and health (my comments in bold):

Obama: “Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high-blood pressure are all diet-related health issues that cost this country more than $120 billion each year.” [This is an absolutely made-up figure. There is no evidence that diet alone is responsible for the alleged conditions and cost.]

Obama: “Nearly a third of the children in this country are either overweight or obese…” [Wrong. CDC says the figure is about 17%]

Are you surprised?

Since when is Obama an expert on anything?

You're kidding right? She sees The One getting away with this all the time. She and He believe that they are the smartest people in the world and that all who hear them believe everything regardless of the truth.
