They're at it again. The latest public rant against Michelle Obama's effort to promote low-calorie school lunches was recently caught on tape in Alabama -- the usual protest against the federal government meddling in local business.

if conservatives are genuinely concerned about government meddling in our diets than i hope they'll finally support banning the influence of agribusinesses, the powerful dairy lobby (who even Nixon was afraid to stand up to), Monsanto, and all the rest.

IDIOTS! Michelle's got a fantastic body... it's called a hot booty not a fat butt!

They're retaliating because she's attempting to teach the nations children healthy eating habits.

These are not very well hidden "racist" remarks meant to be disparaging ~ but are in fact very complimentary to a beautiful woman with a healthy and beautiful female body shape.

I'm sorry but this is so assinine (lol) that these men don't deserve the attention this story has garnered. Michelle Obama is a strong, beautiful, intelligent and classy first lady and those who make disparaging comments about her have obviously looked in the mirror and did not like what they saw. So, as we all know, people who hate themselves often feel the need to put others down in order to make themselves feel better. The only asses in this story are those who made the remarks. Thanks Carrie.

Those idiots can try all they want-they'll NEVER look even remotely as fantastic and foxy as the first lady!
And the more pink slime the opponents consume the more they'll look just like that .

Our First Lady has more class, intelligence, beauty inside and out-she is to be appreciated for all the wonderful things she is and does. Whenever stupid tongues start wagging---who really pays attention or gives a dam???

Well, personally I find it mean-spirited to make fun of someone's perceived physical flaws. Exposing blatent hypocrisy (which I don't see here) might be an exception, though. I find it silly to think that accusing someone of having a fat butt is racist, as if this was a problem only for black women.

Thanks Carrie for the post and link to the article by Krissah Thompson. Read about this the other day and signed a petition on forcechange.com to have this teacher disciplined. Tahnks for posting it here on C2NN. Read (again) and noted.

Michelle Obama is trying to improve the health of the children and improve their future as adults. Good on her.
Just as the Queen of Spain had no legs, so the First lady of the USA has no butt for ignorant people to make even greater fools of themselves.

Michelle is a beautiful woman inside and out. Why must people always discuss the shape, the progress of a woman's body - the inside is what counts.

"Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people."

Those people obviously have nothing better to do with their time and energy than to criticize our first lady. Sad.
Thanks Carrie.

Do these people have no life of their own? I bet they have a lot uglier bits on their bodies; their minds are obviously pathetic and shallow.

Its time that men too a long look at themselves, before saying how woman look - no matter who they maybe! Men's body-shape are tripled in size before reaching their mid 20s and continue to do so; whereas, woman try harder to maintain a good shape also weight - witch is mostly difficult to do after having children. Suggest, Men start looking at themselves first, before saying anything about Michele Obama or any other woman; otherwise, they may receives a nasty shock and wives could turn tables on them!

Lynn D., Michelle Obama does not have a "fat butt", but many, if not all of her male critics do! All women everywhere are set to a higher mental AND physical standard than men! Anita B. YOU are so accurate is your assessment! After these sexist jerks have a couple of pregnancies and births ~ they may be able to comprehend.

I think she is a beautiful woman. This nation has been so rude to both this President and the First Lady. I can just imagine how this will go down in history; that is if the conservatives haven't rewritten history which I'm sure they will try to do.

Michelle is one of those First Ladies that just radiates her beautiful body, her intelligence, caring and love for her children and husband. They obviously have a wonderful marriage, family and can even laugh together. I'm proud of them both.

I'm more concerned about what she spoke about in Alabama. Her less than half hearted campaign to make an effort in doing something about school lunches has bothered me from day one. The woman has no committee, she proposes or is willing to talk to congress to draft legislation on this issue.
It's no wonder her :talk" in Alabama became all about her. If she spoke with confidence, made a statement, this garbage would never have been under discussion.

OK, I admit I am female and straight, so I can't speak about desirablity, but beauty I recognize, and Michelle Obama is the most beutiful woman who has been First Lady in my lifetime. And I lived through the Kennedy administration. So there.

This kind of talk only shows the low mindedness of the people that are saying such malicious and stupid statements! As the article points out, these remarks are made by people who are bigoted and are just looking for anything they can to try to undermine an intelligent and effective president and his intelligent and very admirable wife! Rush Limbaugh is a man who is wrong about virtually everything and is nothing other than a big windbag. And he is very overweight with at least a couple of beer bellies and certainly doesn't fit the greek standard of masculinity! But, what I find sad is that these people fail to show any sense of what we really should be focused on- building our infrastructure, improving education for our children, investing in clean and sustainable energies, and trying to stem what threatens us the most - global climate change!
It's also ridiculous that women are held to such a high physical standard in our culture and ironically, these men who are making these insulting comments look like they are all prime candidates for a complete makeover! In my opinion, and I think many others too, Michelle Obama is a beautiful woman who is stately, dignified, and exudes warmth and grace! I also think that she is a wonderful role model for many girls and women as she shows confidence in herself and is happy with who she is!

"White people not showing adequate respect" ... Oh please. What planet are you from? This is a back-and-forth, good for division, issue among the petty. Always has been and probably always will be. All others are steeped in issues of importance and not this crap.
