Instead of practicing what she preaches in her “Let’s Move” program, Michelle Obama has decided to avoid picking her own vegetables from her own garden, and instead, to allow them to rot.
In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes – a favorite of President Barack Obama – have become worm food.
It’s another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love.
For the past five years, the media has told us about Michelle Obama’s garden. But now we see that it’s a fraud. It was never her garden. It is and always has been the government’s garden. And now that there’s a government shutdown, there are no government employees to pick the vegetables.
I guess Michelle Obama is too lazy to take her own advice from her “Let’s Move” program to “get moving” and pick her own vegetables.
This isn’t the first example of the government shutdown exposing how spoiled and lazy she is. After the government shutdown caused her 16 “assistants” (who are paid salaries as high as $172,200) to be laid off, her Twitter account said:
“Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, updates to this account will be limited.”
On September 22, 2008, candidate Obama said:
“I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.”
However, after he won the election, President Obama spent $516,000 of taxpayers’ money on a video game called “Prom Week.”
I guess this means that based on his own words, he doesn’t consider this spending to be “wasteful.”
This is one of the reasons why he wants to raise taxes?
I “hope” we “change” the person who is President in the upcoming election.
When Obama carried out his Solyndra con game, he broke the same law that Martha Stewart went to prison for breaking
In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. It was later revealed that the company’s shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials.
Chicago government spends $90,000 per year on each of 200 employees to spend most of their “work” time sitting around doing nothing
The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
We all know that President Obama wants to raise taxes. During his presidency, the federal government has been purchasing soda for a cost of $3.40 per can. Obama has not expressed any desire to switch to a cheaper seller, such as Costco, amazon.com, or Wal-Mart – or to an even still cheaper seller such as a wholesaler. Instead, Obama continues to force taxpayers to pay these outrageous prices for soda. I wonder whom the government is buying this ridiculously overpriced soda from.
