image for Michelle Obama Vows to Defend Her School Lunch Program "Til the Bitter End"
"I'm starving! Can I have a handful of salad?"

Minneapolis - While it's not exactly a "Remember the Alamo!" battle cry, First Lady Michelle Obama is screeching that she will defend her signature school lunch program 'til the bitter end.'

Ironically, this is how a majority of Americans view having to endure her husband's presidency - 'Til the bitter end.'

FLOTUS's school lunch program has been a mess from the start. First of all, many resent being told what to eat, especially by someone who was never elected to office by a single vote.

Secondly, the food the first lady wants served to American school children is tasteless and gives the kids miniscule portions.

Most people don't doubt that the first lady's heart, if she has one, is in the right place. But, like Obamacare, the program is a one size fits all, mandated program and those rarely succeed.

Millions of school children have turned up their noses at the new lunches being served and tons of the food ends up being thrown in the trash, making it a very wasteful program - something government officials are experts with.

Another part of the problem with the program is the optics. The first lady demands school children eat scraps compared to their previous school lunches while she constantly dines on 4,000 calorie meals consisting of fancy foods most commoners have never even tried.

Congress has recently begun to push back and school districts around the country are starting to say "No thank you" to the lunch program, which has prompted the first lady to come out swinging and demanding no changes be made to her pet project.

Her defense of the program has more to do with ego than about it being a bad plan that needs changing.

But that's the Obama way. They know better what is good for us than we do and that's all there is to it. That attitude will always be a bitter pill for Americans to swallow.

Make E. Williams's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
