Do as I say ...

... and you get on magazine covers:

But in reality?

Michelle Obama orders 1,700-calorie meal at Shake Shack.

First lady Michelle Obama ordered a whopper of a meal at the newly opened Washington diner Shake Shack during lunch on Monday.

A Washington Post journalist on the scene confirmed the first lady, whos made a cause out of child nutrition, ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke(!) while the street and sidewalk in front of the usually-packed Shake Shack were closed by security during her visit.

For some reason, if Michelle was a Republican, I've a feeling that the MSM wouldn't let this outright hypocrisy die ...

UPDATE: GE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt -- The Messiah's chair of the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness -- said yesterday "that businesses needed to take the lead on job creation."

January, 2011:

As the administration struggles to prod businesses to create jobs at home, GE has been busy sending them abroad. Since Immelt took over in 2001, GE has shed 34,000 jobs in the U.S., according to its most recent annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. But its added 25,000 jobs overseas.

And, don't forget that GE paid no federal income taxes in 2010, while earning over $14 billion in profit.
