    When it comes to these First Ladies interests... they need not be funded by government and government departments that should be shut or drastically cut. Just Say No could have been funded by the private sector. Of all the First Ladies interests, this message was probably the most memorable and effective.

    The 'Just Say No' message was effective? We thought is was simplistic and useless in my crowd. It certainly did not work.

    It was hoped to be effective, it had all the components of a successful program....
    First, the slogan easily fit on a bumper sticker, second, the first lady was a respectable republican.
    What Mrs. Obama needs is respect from the right for making an attempt, but that isn't going to happen. Next thing you know, the ubercons will be dissing the family dog for being a foreign breed...not yet naturalized, and with a suspect birth certificate....

    Yep, its much easier to repeat 'Just Say No' a lot than it is to convey that the traditional western diet is garbage to your system.

    AND the best part is, the GOP can borrow the slogan to be their mantra for the next 2 years....no matter what the WH and/or DEMS come up with, the GOP can just chant "Just Say No".

    You mean like... YES WE CAN?
    Or... WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR?
    Or... HOPE AND CHANGE?

    OK... of you say so.

    Just say no was aimed at the youth... The above were aimed at the youth, the ignorant and gullible.
    Probably worked for you.

    Yeah.. she and her family look fat.

    You'd think all those concerned leftists would do a story about how she has kept in such great shape, how her husband looks like a stud, and how their kids are so healthy.

    And use her and her family as an example. But noooooooooooooooooo... Instead we get Oprah's latest diet report. How she went through the TSA grope-a-dope and got arrested for having 40 pounds of crack, felt ashamed and decided to crash it away.

    I haven't read any posts beyond this one (from page 11, post 101 down), so perhaps someone can enlighten me...

    Has anyone who supports Palin in her objection to the First Lady's stand against childhood obesity suggested any alternate solutions other than "parents take charge of your kids" or "government, stay out of our business"? Seems to be there's more bickering going on from the opposing side of the political spectrum than there are better solutions to tackle the problem. For, if parents were "taking charge" our children wouldn't be so damned fat and lazy (over generalization, I know, but you get my drift...)
