Palin vs. Obama -- Michelle this Time!

It's not unusual for Sarah Palin to bash President Obama, but now she has a new target in the Obama family -- Michelle. She is mocking the First Lady's battle against obesity.

 

Mrs. Obama's big cause is her "Let's Move" campaign that fights childhood obesity. Well, Palin is apparently not a fan. On an episode of her reality show that aired on Sunday, Palin had this to say while on a camping trip: 

"Where are the s'mores ingredients? This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert."

Palin has said that she is obviously not in favor of childhood obesity -- rather, she thinks the government should stay out of the nation's dining rooms.

"What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat," Palin told radio host Laura Ingraham last month.

"Instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician's wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back, and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track," she said.

The "Let's Move" campaign encourages families and schools to adopt a healthy approach to nutrition, offering tips to parents on what their children should eat. While it does not ban dessert, it does suggest cutting back on sugar.
