Obama makes kids fat, and Michelle criticizes them for it
It's tragically ironic that Michelle Obama's personal crusade is against childhood obesity, yet it's her husbands fervent attack on the US economy that is causing families to only be able to afford the cheapest fast food.
That's where McDonalds comes in. McDonalds profits are a good indicator of the relative health of the American economy. As people rise out of poverty, they eat more quality and expensive food and when times are bad as they are now, kids get fatter because their families can't afford anything but fast food. McDonalds profits are up like 7% from last year to record levels. You know the economy is bad when McDonalds is making that kind of money.
