Two Republican leaders defended first lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity crusade amid criticism that the program oversteps family decision making. "What Michelle Obama has proposed is that we recognize that we have a serious obesity crisis, which we do ... not that the government tells you that you can't eat dessert," said Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also expressed his support, saying "it's a really good goal to encourage kids to eat better."
