Potential GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says Sarah Palin’s wrong and Michelle Obama’s right, at least when it comes to the first lady’s push to combat childhood obesity.
“With all due respect to my colleague and friend Sarah Palin, I think she's misunderstood what Michelle Obama is trying to do,” the former Arkansas governor said Tuesday on the “Curtis Sliwa Show.”.....
(said Huckabee) “Michelle Obama's not trying to tell people what to eat or not trying to force the government's desires on people,” Huckabee said. “She’s stating the obvious, that we do have an obesity problem in this country.”
Yeah, this is why anyone with the name Huckabee shouldn't be elected president.
Remember when "Just Say No" had the force of law behind it? The Obama family is not merely "stating" anything. They are "telling" people what to do about it. I would say that Huckabee would be smart enough to know the difference, but his name is Huckabee.
How is the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act NOT an imposition of "the government's desires on people?" It's now law! I think the flashy lights of his Fox News studio are making Mikey a little blind to what is really obvious.
I know this is an issue near and dear to his heart, but if personal baggage made good law then toilet seats would be narrower than the human head and 10 year-old bed-wetters will be eligible for a presidential medal of honor when I'm in charge of this joint.
How about this? If anyone can tell me which federal law Huckabee used to guide him in dropping his 100 pounds I'll back off the issue, and because I'm a nice guy I wont make beeping sounds while I do it.
All Palin is doing is playing a little gander to Michelle's goose by employing Obama's BFF Saul Alinsky's fifth rule:
"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."
This kind of nonsense needs to be ridiculed until election day, when it can be defeated.
