Water or vodka?  You decide.  Michelle Obama will NEVER know!

Water or vodka? You decide. Michelle Obama will NEVER know!

With her husband stymied on the world stage and pivoting (yet again) to the economy, the first lady is once again passionately concerned with what you eat and drink.

First healthy eating, now healthy drinking. First lady Michelle Obama has teamed up with Hollywood star — and potato-chip promoter — Eva Longoria to push Americans to drink more water.

The pair is set to kick off the water-drinking push at a high school in the aptly named Watertown, Wisc., community on Thursday, The Hill reported. It’s the next step in Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to fight obesity rates around the nation and especially among America’s youth.

Fear not, dear ladies.  Given that even the best Scotch has some percentage of water, and given that reading the news these days is best done anesthetized, and given Michelle Obama’s indefatigable hectoring, I predict that by the end of the Obama presidency, I’ll be up to Stephen Green‘s levels of alcohol  er… water consumption.

You know, I wouldn't mind Michelle's campaign for being healthy nearly so much if she didn't follow it up with regulatory force.

How would people have felt had Laura Bush enforced her reading campaign in the schools with regulations telling all schools when the students had to read and what books?

Don't these 2 ditzy broads got anything better to do? Drink more water? Why? Do they mean even when I'm not thirsty? Cuz if I don't go by that, how do I know if I should drink a frickin' ocean or not?

Go take DNA tests - you may be Gaboon vipers. They don't drink much water, or at least I've never seen them do that. Or eat bread. Snakes don't eat sandwiches. They're afraid they'll get fat and get stuck in keyholes.

i'm not sure if this to take attention away from her extremely failed lunch program (that has kids vomitting or throwing away large amounts of food)

or

a precursor to new regulatory control over water. I mean, EPA already ttax/regulate/fine -ing the air we breathe, the Clean Water Act is likely not stifling enough, and needs revamping.

Who the hell is Michelle Obama to tell anyone what to drink or eat? She has a backside the size of a Volkswagon.

People constantly say she "has great arms", but she doesn't. Her arms are no more defined than any other Mom who doesn't work out. They all talk about how elegant she is, but don't realize she borrowed one dress from the Romulans. It's all part of their bizarre worship of the Dear Leader.

When did this nonsense start? Nancy Reagan? Or was it earlier?

I don't care what party they are, or what cause they are espousing, I'm tired of First Ladies assuming the office of National Nag.

Never mind saying no, how about you all just shut up!

I'd guess Eleanor Roosevelt was the first. From Wikipedia:
"Though widely respected in her later years, Roosevelt was a controversial First Lady for her outspokenness, particularly her stands on racial issues. She was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention."

Every time Michelle issues one of her holier than thou edicts about whatever, I want to eat 10 Big Macs and drink whatever sugary crap is nearest at hand.

Since when has the federal government been anointed the thought police ?
