School Board President Rips Michelle Obama Over Her Lunch Mandate: “Last Time I Checked She Was Elected By No One”
Michelle Obama’s school lunch program has been met with nothing but anger and derision from parents, students, and educators alike. One school board president is particularly fed up, not only choosing to opt out of her school lunch program, but also ripped her mandate, saying that Michelle Obama has been elected by no one.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports:
“We believe that proper food nutrition and meal portion guidelines are best decided at a local level,” said Rick Petfalski, School Board president for the Muskego-Norway School District.
Opting out of the program means Muskego-Norway will no longer receive federal money for its meals, but it also means the district is free to serve whatever it wants. […]
Under the school lunch program regulations, Petfalski said, the district’s food service was projected to be headed toward a $54,000 deficit. By opting out – and presumably selling more food – he expects about a $7,100 surplus.
“By leaving the program we will not be required to follow these onerous guidelines, pushed by and large by Michelle Obama, who last I checked has been elected by no one,” Petfalski said.
He’s right — no one elected Michelle Obama, but that isn’t stopping her from acting as if she’s more than just the First Lady, a mostly meaningless office that she somehow believes entitles her to rule over us little people. It’s about time that someone reminded her that she’s a nobody who has no authority over anything, and that will be even more true in just a few short years.
