FLOTUS to visit Silver Spring school

By Washington Post editors

First lady Michelle Obama has invited Mexico's first lady to tour a Silver Spring elementary school honored for teaching healthy living.

Obama and Margarita Zavala, the wife of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, are scheduled to visit the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring on Wednesday. Many students at the school come from Central and South America.

Last year, the school won the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Healthier U.S. School Challenge Silver Award, which rewards schools that promote nutrition and physical activity. Educators there teach ways to maintain health as part of the physical education program.

Does Mrs. Obama know vegetable gardens are prohibited in Montgomery County Schools and that the MCPS Director of Food Services made a commercial for flavored (sugar added) milk?

Video shows MCPS students buying flavored milk:

Did anyone see the clip from her visit?

A little girl reported that Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH) will be sending people home. Ms. Obama said no and asked the girl to elaborate. The girls said that people without papers will be sent home and that her mother didn't have papers (read: is illegal) to which 'Chelle replied, "we'll have to fix that."

What does she mean by that? I'm sure she doesn't mean amnesty. Nah.
