Are Hugo Chavez and Michelle Obama best friends?

Looks like Hugo is Advising the First Lady from Venezuela

This Boston.com article was reposted on Fox nation with the side-by-side picture (at the top of the article) of President Hugo Chavez and Mrs. Obama. Really… trying to paint the First Lady as a true socialist by putting her next to Hugo Chavez? Granted, there are certainly arguments to be made regarding health care reform and opening the door for the federal government to enact personal-liberty-strangling legislation, but this is just out of hand.

As we all know very well, Mrs. Obama’s pet-project as First Lady is to reduce childhood obesity. For those of you that aren’t familiar, First Lady’s traditionally have a noncontroversial cause. Lady Bird Johnson focused on beautification/environmentalism (before it was cool to be green), Nancy Reagan had her ‘Just Say No’ program to combat illegal drugs, and former librarian Laura Bush championed literacy.

To be clear, obesity is completely out of control in the US. Aside from politically correct gluttons who are too sensitive to have a conversation about their weight, it’s universally agreed that children should get more physical exercise and eat healthier. Obesity is proven to lead to heart disease and diabetis, it affects our overall produtivity and GDP output, national security is weakened by having a less military ready population, and it drives up the cost of healthcare.

Now, if Mrs. Obama was jamming organic foods and garnola down our throats and if Hubby-in-Chief was passing legislation to ban Fast Food, they’d have a Tea Party fight on their hands. But in all honesty, this is just about fatty awareness. As Tea Party patriots, we should be committed to the concept of parental personal responsibility that is necessary when responsibility feeding one’s children. Let’s be honest with ourselves… too many of us (yes… both Republican and Democrat) are disgustingly FAT and LAZY. Enough with the PC sensitivity about obesity.

Here is some message board fodder from the Fox Nation article:

“How easy it is for lefty radicals to discard the Presidential guidelines and anything to do with the Constitution for that matter, when it’s in support of their side. I can’t imagagine how they’d howl if this was a Republican Pres who was lying.”

“Both need to lose weight”
 
“moochelle, another mooslim, racist, traitor that belongs in prison”
 
“why don’t you liberals worry about your own dinner plate,and leave every one else alone?!first of all their are more people eating healthier food today than there used to be.secondly,when i want advise on diet and exercise i go to my doctor,not the white house!and thirdly,even the experts can’t agree on whats truly healthy food.until the obamas show me a medical degree,they can bite me!when politics gets involved in medicine thats when people pay the price with their health!and remember not all liberals are slim healthy people either,i’ve seen just as many jumbo liberals,as i have conservatives.stick that in your hash brown and eat it!”
