Subway Lets Michelle Obama Decide Its Menu

If there is one thing most leftists can agree on, it is that choice is a bad thing. It is much better, they contend, to let the federal government determine which car you should drive, what type of healthcare you may receive, and what foods are appropriate.

Michelle Obama has been deeply involved in that last category since her “Let’s Move” campaign began four years ago. She has successfully coerced numerous school districts to implement federal nutritional guidelines so restrictive that whatever meals result have little chance of actually being eaten by a student.

She has now teamed up with one of the largest chains in the world to bring that government interference into the private sector. A recently announced partnership between the first lady and Subway restaurants indicates the latter has promised $41 million to spread the nutrition gospel according to Michelle Obama.

The chain’s chief marketing officer portrayed the move as “a natural extension of what we do.”

It appears, however, to be merely a reflection of the disastrous policies Obama has already foisted upon the public school system. Kids’ meals will now follow the same basic guidelines that made school lunches even more undesirable than they were in generations past. These meals will forego chips and a soda for an apple and water, all while echoing the highly partisan rhetoric of the Obama administration.

While leftist nannies are celebrating the capitulation of a major restaurant chain, many who would prefer not to think about Michelle Obama as they unwrap their meatball sub are threatening to find another sandwich shop.

 

 

 

Of course, this isn’t the first time Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign has been able to hijack popular brands and characters for the cause. One of her speeches last year implored those in the private sector to submit to her will, which could have been a factor in Subway’s recent decision.

The White House chef who heads the campaign extolled the virtues of a restaurant bowing to the demands of the first lady.

Sam Kass said the chain is “raising the bar for what a responsible, quick-service restaurant can do to help support the health of the nation.”

In reality, Subway has always offered healthy choices – along with not-so-healthy ones. The mere presence of those options, however, is insufficient to government interventionists who despise the concept of free will.

  1. As much as I like Subway sandwiches, I will not buy anything from them until they remove M. O's picture (and, I already have sent them an email stating that). Anyone else want to do the same (i.e. boycott Subway until M. O's picture is removed permanently)??

    She should shove that carrot up her you know what because there is nothing slim about her and that fat ass proves it.

    Anyone for a buffalo bull$hit sandwich??? Burger King should use Barack Obama to promote their food with the slogan: "Home of the Big Whopper".

  4. Sic Semper Tyrannis says:

    It's gotten so ridiculous that even the Sesame Street Cookie Monster is now the Veggie Monster.

    This coming from the disgusting b!tch who has cost taxpayers a damn fortune!!! How's that for setting a good example for youngsters??? She could solve WORLD HUNGER with the Goddamn millions of dollars she and her husband have wasted on their lavish lifestyles and eternally interminable vacations all over Kingdom Come!!! That is how transparently fake these people are!

    It is time to boycott Subways, Americans should not support this corporation and watch their business go down, bottom line money speaks louder then moochella the dictator wannabe

    I am a conservative Republican and ex-NH House Representative. I also own a Subway and I have several things to say. First, simply because you are a conservative Republican should not mean that common sense goes out the window simply because Obama supports it. If you believe that, you are an idiot and part of the problem. And I am specifically talking about believing that kids need to eat healthier so we can get away from the obesity and health problems that plague our overweight kids. Second, check your facts. This article was written this week, but Subway has not had soda or chips in its kids meals for years! And Obama had nothing to do with it. Because Subway believes in healthy food, especially for children – and based on some of these comments, I guess some here would rather ignore the problems we have with obesity and inactivity, simply because Obama is trying to address it. Grow up..

      Hey Brandon,

      Right or wrong, Americans are sick of these two people the Obamas who are dictating to the rest of us from Health plans to forcing their lunch menus on public schools, which many of our children do not like nor want.

      How dare you tell anybody here to grow up, who the hell do you think you are?

      Americans are fed up with the corruption and the lies of this fraudulent president and his continuance of shredding our Constitution and the lawlessness and the reckless spending and the abuse where now more of Americans are on Foodstamps and living in poverty.

      I hope all Americans boycott Subways, and it is too bad for you if you own one of these franchise. If anybody needs to grow up it is you, you MORON, We The People are tired of this corrupt administration and will not stand for this nonsense much longer, so take your comment and go to hell, we have had it

      Boycott Subways!!!!

Speak Your Mind
