In response to my Monday post, a reader expressed disappointment about the prez's highly publicized burger runs. Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown says not to worry. (I'm not sure links to Politico stories are stable, but I can't find an obvious permalink to this one so we'll have to take our chances.) She writes:
President Barack Obama eats his vegetables and exercises every day - and he really wants you to do the same.
From the White House garden to his picks for top health jobs, Obama is telling America's McDonald's-loving, couch-dwelling, doctor-phobic populace that things are about to change.
The article makes a great deal of libertarian objections to the government promoting healthy habits. I think these are completely ridiculous. A good subject for an upcoming post . . .
