White House Objects to Poster That Invokes Obama Children
The posters went up last week, 14 in Union Station. On each of the large displays, a thought bubble rises up from a picture of a beautiful 8-year-old: "President Obama's daughters get healthy school lunches. Why don't I?"
A Washington nonprofit that advocates nutrition-policy reform paid $20,000 to get its message across and carefully maneuvered Metro's tangle of regulations to display its posters. Metro gave it a go -- but the White House did not, according to the group. Within 24 hours of the signs' appearance, the White House asked the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to take down the ads, which feature Jasmine Messiah, a vegetarian who attends a Miami-Dade County public school that, she says, offers no vegetarian or vegan lunch options.

Ok...so the SCHOOL that OBAMA is able to send his children too offers all theses special/healthy alternatives....how come PUBLIC school doesn't? Bteter? Saaying the same thing without saying Obamas girls. Woo freakin Hoo. Its further proof of Obama speaking out of both sides of his face.
He wants to spread the wealth...as long as HE and HIS don't have to settle. Just like with Health care...WE will get one ins..HE and Congress will get another.

oh and once again I would like to point out that the OBAMA'S had those girls on the cover of every magazine and tabloid when he was running for office and after he won. WHO was putting the kids out there?? At least this ad doesn't show their faces.
AND once again..BUSH'S daughters were NOT off limits. the media had a Field day whenever they had a teenage screw up...like these media people were perfect when THEY were teenagers :/
