I was just reading a news article about the latest uproar over first lady Michelle Obama’s support for breast-feeding, and the strong negative reaction from Michele Bachmann and other critics.
Quite frankly, I find the whole situation utterly ridiculous. Some people will argue and disagree, just for the sake of arguing and disagreeing, or else just to see their name in the headlines. Aren’t there more serious issues to be concerned about, or to argue and debate about in the USA?
The irony of this situation is that even Michele Bachmann admits that she breast-fed her five children.
To make things worse, then Sarah Palin obviously had to add her two cents worth to the debate — and, of course, see her name in the news again — by taking her own jab at Michelle Obama by saying “No wonder Michelle Obama is telling everybody, ‘You better breast-feed your baby.’ . . . Yeah, you’d better, because the price of milk is so high right now.” It is hard to respect Ms. Palin when she makes such air-head, idiotic statements. I would have given her more credit if she had stayed out of the debate and said nothing.
I just have one final thing to say regarding this issue:
Breast-feeding: It’s what God intended!
Father knows best!
