Insipid Michelle Obama Promotes ‘Walking School Buses’

Her kids are transported to school by armed Secret Service, but regular Americans kids should be forced to walk.

First Lady Michelle Obama is promoting walking to school as part of her anti-obesity campaign.In remarks to mayors gathered at the White House last week, the first lady singled out Knox County, Tenn., which – inspired by Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign — has created a bike-share program and something called a “walking school bus.”

“I’ve heard more and more of this kind of walking school bus happening all over the country — so that kids can get exercise on the way to school, kind of like we did when we were growing up,” she said.

A “walking school bus” is a group of children who walk to school with adult chaperones.

Should be great on hot days so kids show up sweaty and tired.

For security reasons, Mrs. Obama’s own two daughters are delivered to their private school, located 4.6 miles from the White House, by the Secret Service vehicles.

Mrs. Obama has promoted walking to school before.  Marking International Walk to School Day in 2010, the First Lady said it is a good way for children to exercise.

    You used to be able to walk to school when schools were smaller and important parts of every community. But with fewer megaschools today, many of them are much further away and parents just aren’t going to be comfortable having their children cross rush-hour traffic just to get a little exercise. Michelle ought to exercise her mouth less and her legs more.
