School Drops Michelle Obama’s Lunch Standards

First we have this from the Washington Times:

New York school drops Michelle Obama lunch standards: Kids too hungry

By Cheryl K. Chumley | July 9, 2013

New York’s Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake school district has become the latest casualty in first lady Michelle Obama’s preferred lunch plan, dropping the menu after too many students complained of hunger.

Isn’t irony ironic? We can remember when the left’s biggest cause was children going hungry. Which is why we started giving away free school lunches, and breakfasts and dinner.

“[Food service manager Nicky] Boehm and her staff worked hard to implement the new regulations, but there were just too many problems and too many foods that students did not like and would not purchase,” said Assistant Superintendent Chris Abdoo about the National School Lunch Program in a statement reported by EAGNews.org. “Students complained of being hungry with these lunches and the district lost money.” …

The district lost about $100,000 trying out the federal menu, which offered such meals as “part” of a chicken patty on a minicroissant, EAGNews.org reported.

You could feed a lot of ‘hongry childrun’ for $100,000.

“Students felt they weren’t getting good value for their money,” Ms. Boehm said in EAGNews.org. “The high schoolers especially complained the portion sizes were too small and many more students brought in lunch from home.”

This isn’t the first school to drop the federal lunch menu plan. Catlin, Ill., schools did the same, calling the guidelines too “restrictive,” EAGNews.org reported.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is in charge of managing the lunch program and estimates Mrs. Obama’s new wish list for student meals would cost about $3.2 billion to bring to fruition around the nation.

You could also feed a lot of ‘hongry childrun’ for $3.2 billion dollars.

Obama claims broccoli is his favorite food

By Steve Holland | July 9, 2013

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama likes burgers, hot dogs and such, but when it came time to answer a kid journalist’s question about his favorite food, broccoli was the first word that sprang from his lips…

What happened to arugula?

This revelation came on Tuesday at a White House event that recognized children who won a healthy recipe contest, as part of first lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign…

Physician heal thyself.

Obama’s disclosure puts him starkly at odds with the culinary tastes of George H.W. Bush, who as president famously declared his dislike for broccoli.

"And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m president of the United States, and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli!" Bush said in 1990…

Mr. Bush still resides prominently in Mr. Obama’s head.

Meanwhile, we have this from Yahoo! News:

Barack Obama not eating broccoli

July 10, 2013

During a surprise visit to the kids’ "state dinner," President Barack Obama told a student his favorite food was broccoli.

Yahoo News producer Max Zimbert dug through the archives to find photographic evidence. He couldn’t find broccoli, but did find photos of the president enjoying hot dogs, ice cream and beer–a lot of beer. 

Mr. Zimbert can now expect to be investigated by the FBI and audited by the IRS. After all, with all Democrats, it’s ‘do what I say, not what I do.’

    What we’ve learned here is that little Hussein has no compunction at all when it comes to lying to children as well as adults. Unlike Bush 41, who only lied to his supporters.

    How in hell did Michelle Obama end up making ‘sweeping standards’ for anyone other than Zippy the Pinhead? Who elected her?

    This bovine scatology is off the charts crazy …

    Lying and hypocrisy come so easily to these Ruling Class figureheads that it’s shocking. But they know that keeping the media and all of us stirred up pays dividends. It’s all part of their Alinskyite methodology.

    “Permanent Revolution” is the goal of the ‘progressive’ totalitarian mindset. Because we all must ‘progress’, we have to constantly change, reinvent everything, and find fault with the status quo.

    Lenin, Stalin, Mao, et al, discovered early on that permanent conflict and upheaval offer the easiest and best way to control people and keep their enemies off balance. The Islamo-Nazis in Iran under Khomeini also discovered this back in the 1980’s and it has allowed the mullahs to hold onto power in spite of all massive failures. Read Bani Sadr’s book ‘My Turn To Speak’. He was there, as Khomeini’s right- hand man; until the Ayatollah put out a contract on him.
