LOL. Like there aren't enough Americans to enlist, so if anybody is overweight, and


can't be in the service, we are suffering a crisis.


She isn't kidding either. I guess auto accidents are a threat to national security.


And going to prison must be a threat to national security. LOL


And so many marxist/liberals/progressives/statists thought BUSH was dumb.


This woman is stupid. Maybe intelligent. But her IQ does her no good at all.

(CNSNews.com) – At a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, First Lady Michelle Obama announced the launch of the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign to end childhood obesity in the United States, an epidemic she said is costly and a threat to national security.


“A recent study put the health care cost of obesity-related diseases at $147 billion a year,” Mrs. Obama said. “This epidemic also impacts the nation’s security, as obesity is now one of the most common disqualifiers for military service.”
