Mrs. Obama:

"Change absolutely starts with each of us, as individuals, taking responsibility for ourselves and our families because we know that our kids won't grow up healthy until our families start eating right and exercising more. That's on us," she said. "We know that we won't close that education gap until we turn off the TV, and supervise homework, attend those parent-teacher conferences, and serve as good role models for our own children."

Taken entirely as a stand-alone, without ad hominem: I agree.

Now let's apply this standard to everyone, all the time. I think if you're on government assistance, they should shut your television down.

Take responsibility. Bitches.

Oh sweet NED, I do sense a fresh entry into the ThreeSources style guide. Thank you Patrick Gaspard, from the bottom of my heart!

And while I agree with FLOTUS' "take responsibility" theme it rings hollow on the very day her husband's "we'll take care of you" law escaped the guillotine. Ironically, her simple advice, if followed, would do more to advance the prosperity of "poorly-educated obese black children" than all of President Obama's policies laid end to end.
