Let’s waddle: Obamas and guests sit down to 3,000-calorie inaugural lunch

We hope President Obama is wearing his elastic-waisted mom jeans! He, his wife, and members of Congress are celebrating his coronation this afternoon with a fancy-pants lunch — a 3,000-calorie lunch.

Now, call us crazy, but we’re getting some mixed signals here. We could’ve sworn Michelle Obama is all about fitness. Whatever happened to  that “Let’s Move!” stuff?

Come on, now. If we’re not allowed to eat fatty foods, somebody’s got to do it, right?

Hey, Michelle’s just looking out for the future’s best interests. Pipe down and eat your rice cakes, peasants!

    It fits in with the whole elitist let them eat cake Marie Antoinette Michelle Obama theme.

    Ignorant people, Michelle didn’t choose the menu. You should ask Boehner’s wife about that.

        I simply listened when Sen. Schumer stated it. It’s amazing what happens when you listen. Also, the internet is a powerful resource.

    I don’t eat that much in a day unless i swim at least 2.5 miles, or 2 miles plus 30 minutes if heavy weight lifting.
    So much for leading by example.

    That’s ok, BO will burn at least 2,000 patting himself on the back and another 1,000 talking so he is good.

    Let’s see. You’ve criticized the First Lady’s dress, the poem, the songs, the speech, the crowd and now the food. I’m sure I’m missing something. What a miserable existence you must have, Twitchy.

    • Gothguy

      What is your point? Oh, that’s right, us common folk have no right to criticize the Anointed One. So sorry, forgot about that, we’ll go back on the chain gang.

      Do you Still not understand what this website is?
      Are you expecting it to change because of your criticism??

      • Purple State

        I think my post proves that I understand perfectly what this website is, hence my last sentence.

        • grais

          Then why do you always seem surprised by what you read here?

          Are you expecting it to change because of your criticism?

          Then why don’t you go play in traffic like a good little lib

      Let’s see…you have enough time to read all the stories regarding the dress, the poem, the songs, the speech, the crowd and the food. Do you have a job?

      • Purple State

        Dusting off that ol’ insult, are we?

        • $36544368

          Evading that same ol’ question, are we?

          • Purple State

            Yes, I have a job. There. So now you’re the one evading my original post.

          • $36544368

            LOL…I love it…nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah…such a child…but to humor you and answer your question, it’s not an insult to ask if you have a job when it appears you do nothing with your time but insult others.

          • Purple State

            You seem to have as much time as I do, if not more.

          • $36544368

            You sound a little jealous. Hmm…let’s see…I have two chronic illnesses that take a major toll on my health (Lupus and Meniere’s syndrome – I take 21 pills per day to be able to even be vertical most days), take care of a disabled/autistic son with brain lesions, take care of my husband and our home, am studying to get another degree, am working on my next music CD, take care of the 6 stray cats that live under a vacant house next door (a stray mama and her 5 kittens), pay my bills, do the grocery shopping and other errands…and that’s just for starters…perhaps I budget my time better? I’m fairly certain that I work more hours per day than you do…so while it may ‘seem’ that I have as much time as you do (or ‘more’, as you sarcastically noted), we all have the same 24 hours in each day. I choose to use mine wisely and for reasons based on love, integrity, and respect…how about you? You’re here bashing people because we have strong opinions about the fashion choices of the FLOTUS…how is that using your time wisely?

    Why does this surprise anybody? All socialist or communist or tyrannical regimes always exclude those in power from the rules enforced on everybody else.

    I am NOT inclined to give MO a pass on this one. Just like the libbies and their media (pardon the repetition) pounce all over GOPers who “fall from grace” while staying silent on Dems because “GOPers are hypocrites.”

    Remember all those pathetic school lunches that were forced on the kids?

  • Belinda Henry

    drudge has a link of her sitting next to Boehner stuffing her face and rolling her eyes at him,hilarious

    “Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., the head of the inauguration planning committee, said the meal was chosen by the spouses of a bipartisan group of House and Senate leaders.”

    Mooch was still shoveling it into her gaping hole regardless of who ordered it! She sure don’t practice what she preaches for the rest of us serfs!
