On Face the Nation today, Chris Christie sided with Michelle Obama on her efforts to fight childhood obesity.
Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh have both ridiculed Obama for her anti-childhood obesity campaign.
BOB SCHEIFFER: What do you think about this criticism coming from the Right of Michelle Obama, because she's trying to get people to eat better?
CHRISTIE: I think it's unnecessary. I think it's a really good goal to encourage kids to eat better. You know, I've struggled with my weight for 30 years, and it's a struggle.
And if a kid can avoid that in his adult years or her adult years, more power to them. I think the first lady's speaking out well.
I mean, I don't want the government deciding what you can eat and what you can't eat. I still think that's your choice.
But I think Mrs. Obama being out there, encouraging people in a positive way to eat well and to exercise and to be healthy? I don't have a problem with that.
