If you listen to what she says, the woman certainly sounds committed. But commitment involves more than words, and when Michelle Obama's food directives are compared to the food choices and menu selections she makes for herself and her dinner guests, there's oftentimes a super-sized portion of deceit.
A perfect example of that is the Obama-hosted White House Governor's Dinner, where healthy eating submitted to caloric obscenity. Visiting Washington DC for the National Governor's Association winter meeting, a group of state heavyweights dined compliments of the Obamas the night before the event.
Now, either the First Lady had nothing to say about the menu (which is doubtful), was attempting to 'kill' Republican governors (with kindness of course), or because of Sunday being a day of rest and all, passed on the veggie burgers and threw caution to the wind.
Due to prior commitments, Senator Jan Brewer skipped the social gathering, and so with Obama's favorite governor in absentia the dinner probably had less to do with covert sabotage and more to do with an impressive array of double standards. Reminiscent of Super Bowl Party celebrations, replete with huge bowls of German potato salad and oily deep dish pizza, the menu for the festivities in the State Dining Room attempted to redeem itself by claiming to be comprised of "regionally sourced" American favorites.
