FLOTUS unveils MyPlate icon, Obama downs hot dog(s), chili & fries in Toledo

Obama Foodorama details the unveiling of Michelle Obama’s new food group icon, MyPlate.org.

It just got a little bit easier for kids and their families to follow the Let’s Move! campaign and try to eat like First Lady Michelle Obama. In Washington today, Mrs. Obama unveiled “MyPlate,” the federal government’s new primary food group icon, designed to be an easy-to-understand visual cue to encourage people to adopt eating habits consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

I can see Mark Levin’s head exploding from here.

It comes with a little booklet, (very high end color printing job and probably very expensive) that devotes a page to dire warnings not to change this MyPlate icon in any way.

Listen up, children, this is important.  Below is the page dedicated to the improper use of MyPlate.  Watch for the Obama MyPlate Food Police.

Oh, here we go:  “The icon cost about $2 million and months of work to design and to create, according to USDA sources.”  That’s enough to pay a salary of $40,000 per year for 50 years.  Outrageous.  Cut. their. funds.  Wasting money like this is outrageous any time, especially with so many out of work.

And the MyPlate is so, so much better than the MyPryamid currently in use.  Right!

There is major worry that:

“the food industry in general will use the icon to market foods, but USDA has issued a ten-page “MyPlate Style Guide and Conditions of Use” booklet to attempt to control its messaging tool. The booklet warns ALL users against altering the image in any way–no changes in typeface, color, or position of the food groups on the plate are allowed, for instance. and use of the icon doesn’t imply that USDA endorses the food, according to the booklet.”

“No matter what USDA does, the food industry will figure out a way to use it [MyPlate] to sell more food.  A bottom-line focus always trumps public health, alas.”

Horror of horrors.  Imagine the food industry trying to sell more food.  Can we get these people out of the White House?

I see where POTUS escaped to Toledo yesterday and grabbed a hot dog with mustard, onion, chili sauce and cheese, with a bowl of chili and fries on the side.

Quote of the Day:

“By the way, as an afficionado of hot dogs, you shouldn’t put ketchup on your hot dog… I’m trying to teach my girls.”

President Obama, as he stopped for a bite at Rudy’s Hot Dogs in Toledo, Ohio.

Some say it was TWO chili dogs…..

Hypocrite Debbie Schultz blasts republicans not supporting GM bailout, but she does not drive American car

More hypocrisy from the left.  DNC Chair  Ms. Debbie Schultz recently reviled republicans as “women haters” and blasphemed by incorporating the 9th commandment to her own use by declaring, “Thou shalt not lie about a democrat” (you don’t have to lie – the truth is sufficient) also whined about republicans who voted against the GM bailout.  So worried she is about the auto industry in the USA, she does not drive an American car:

From The Hill:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the chairwoman of the DNC, ripped into Republican presidential contenders who opposed President Obama’s 2009 bailouts for General Motors and Chrysler.

“If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes,” she said at a  breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor.

But according to Florida motor vehicle records, the Wasserman Schultz household owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35, (16 mpg) a Japanese car whose parent company is Nissan, another Japanese company. The car appears to be hers, since its license plate includes her initials.
