While Michelle Obama was making the rounds trying to get 6,000 salad bars installed in the nation’s schools and stressing the importance of a well-balanced, government-funded, union-prepared diet, Barack Obama and Joe Biden countered by buying lots of cream-stuffed fried goodies at a bake sale at Our Lady of the Narrowing Artery in Indiana:

After their official business at a Chrysler plant, President Obama and Vice President Biden bought some desserts at the Gingerbread House Bakery in Kokomo, Ind., on Tuesday to satisfy their sweet tooths and treat the reporters following them around.

“The girls aren’t supposed to have dessert on the weekdays, but it’s Thanksgiving week,” Obama said as he ordered baked goods, according to the pool report.

“I want to take two of those cream rolls home,” Biden remarked.

Obama asked members of the pool what they wanted, and when he got no response, he ordered some apple fritters and pecan rolls for them.

Biden jokingly protested, saying, “If we give them the whole roll, they might not follow us as fast,” to which Obama said, “I’m buying for the pool. Man, those look good.”

Hopefully the press pool remembered to say “thank you” this time.

FLOTUS need not worry about kids having access to high-fat foods — her husband’s trying to get it off the streets as fast as he can!

    I think a little indulgence once in a while, doesn't hurt anyone. It may even encourage people who are struggling with their weight to stay on a diet if they think they have have a treat once in a while. Moderation is always the key. Thanks – Kristie

    Last I heard, health experts were saying letting kids rummage through a salad bar was probably a bad idea for sanitation reasons. Quick get this info to TOTUS so FLOTUS can get in the loop !

    I'm sure our wee President is burned up about the fact that he now has to ply the press with pastries to get what he used to get from them for free.

    Thus the Press is primed for the Pelosi Pastry Act of 2010.

    Notice that Weight Watchers ads always feature the pizza,ice cream and brownies you can eat.

    Does Obama give out free cigarettes for Thanksgiving week?

    If Mr Generosity (with other people`s money) gave out cigars, he`d run the risk of a Billy Jeff comparison – can`t have that ! Besides, he hates the Clintons !
    20 cigs for the price of one good cigar, do the math !

    This sounds likes the guys are just playing the "I`m the boss, I wear the pants in my family thing" ! It`s a good thing Meanchelle doesn`t cook at home, else there`d be a rolling pin in The One`s future ! As for Bite-Me, he may show up in a couple days with a new "plug" covering a conspicuous lump !
