RUSH: And this from the Free Beacon, the Washington Free Beacon: “Michelle Obama defended Let’s Move!, her anti-obesity program, in an interview released Monday. The first lady was asked to respond to critics of the program, who say the government should not be telling people how to eat” by an 11-year-old girl. “Topanga Sena, age 11, a reporter for Scholastic News in Florida,” asked Mrs. Obama this question: ‘How do you respond to critics who say the government should not be telling people how to eat or to stay active?’ Michelle Obama: ‘You know, that’s absolutely right — and Let’s Move! doesn’t do that.'” Yes, it does, Mrs. Obama.  I am willing to bet that there’s not a single Drive-By Media reporter of any kind who has dared ask this question of Michelle Obama.  But an 11-year-old little girl asks: What about all the “critics who say the government should not be telling people how to eat or to stay active?”

The first question that Michelle Obama gets challenging her power over the American people as first lady comes from an 11-year-old.

SENA:  How do you respond to critics who say the government should not be telling people how to eat or to stay active?

OBAMA:  You know, that’s absolutely right — and Let’s Move! doesn’t do that. Let’s Move! is not about having government telling people what to do, because government doesn’t have all the answers. I mean, a problem that’s this big and affects so many people requires everyone to step up. So we’re asking everyone to do their part. Parents have to make some changes at home, but they need the information to be able to make those choices. And they have to have access to affordable foods in their communities — fresh and healthy foods, right? We need government to do its part, but we need businesses to do their part, as well.

RUSH:  So, there’s Mrs. Obama: “No, our program doesn’t do that! No, no, no. Government doesn’t do that. It doesn’t tell people what to do.  We’re asking everybody do their part. Parents have to make some changes at home, but we’re not telling people what to do.  But parents have to make some changes, and businesses have to make some changes — and we gotta get good foods in your house. But we’re not telling anybody what to do.”  Right.  Yeah, right.
