Rep. Michele Bachmann criticizes the First Lady Michelle Obama

Rep. Michelle Bachmann criticizes Michelle Obama
Well, now here is a news worthy story.. It's the battle of the women, not between White and Black the way you may take a racial fight, but between the 'right' going against the 'left', as Republican Michele Bachmann who happens to be a possible contender for the Presidency, squares off against the first lady, Michelle Obama. Now what in her right mind would you think she may want to feud with the Presidents wife. Ms. Bachmann was responding to a comment on the heels of Obama's recent contention that breast-feeding can play a key role in reducing childhood obesity. Here is what the first lady set to spark the outrage by Michele Bachmann...

"We also want to focus on the important touch points in a child's life. And what we're learning now is that early intervention is key. Breastfeeding. Kids who are breastfed longer have a lower tendency to be obese," Obama told a group of reporters last week, according to Politics Daily.

"Breastfeeding is a very personal choice for every woman," Kristina Schake, a spokeswoman for Obama, later said. "We are trying to make it easier for those who choose to do it."

In a quoted reaction, here is what Michele Bachmann told reporters.

"This is very consistent with where the hard left is coming from," Bachmann told Ingraham. "For them, government is the answer to every problem."

"I've given birth to five babies and I breast fed every single one of these babies," she added. "To think that government has to go out and buy my breast pump for my babies? You wanna talk about the nanny state, I think you just got a new definition."

Interesting comments by Michele Bachmann, and I'm wondering what exactly set her off, unless it was her crazy way of getting noticed before some of the Republican contenders for the White House in 2012 come forward.  She may be right in everything she says, but what gives her the idea that Michelle Obama doesn't know about what she is talking about. After all, she had a few children of her own. Her comments also have come out right after another poll was taken indicating that Sarah Palin is running at an all time low as far as a favorite for the Republican nomination for President. I've got to give her an 'A' for trying, but the news she is trying to make will already be old news by tomorrow, and if she plans to run in the Presidential campaign, then maybe she needs to focus on President Obama, and maybe think about more serious worldly issues, like the Middle East, or Guantanamo Bay, or Iraq or Afghanistan.

Ok Michele Bachmann, you have my attention. Now, how about giving me a real story that I can write about.
