Sounding more and more like Bachmann is basically the female Rick Santorum. If so, she's lost my support.

FACT CHECK: Bachmann bomblets raising eyebrows - Yahoo! News


Quote:
Examining 24 of her statements, Politifact.com, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking service of the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, found just one to be fully true and 17 to be false (seven of them "pants on fire" false). No other Republican candidate whose statements have been vigorously vetted matched that record of inaccuracy.

Wow, out of 24 statements, 17 of them are false...lol Who do these people hire to write their speeches?



Quote:
BACHMANN: "The farm is my father-in-law's farm. It's not my husband and my farm. It's my father-in-law's farm. And my husband and I have never gotten a penny of money from the farm." — On "Fox News Sunday."

THE FACTS: In personal financial disclosure reports required annually from members of Congress, Bachmann reported that she holds an interest in a family farm in Independence, Wis., with her share worth between $100,000 and $250,000.
Bachmann giving subsidies to a farm she part owns. Nope, no conflict of interest there. Why are idiots voting for people like this again?

I'm assuming the "idiots" you mention voted for Obama too.

Honestly, does anybody think Michele Bachmann has any chance of getting the GOP nomination? Why are we even bothering.

12th mentioned the Obama campaign spent the time/effort to release a statement attacking her voting record. I don't think they'd do that if there wasn't some level of concern about her.

Not saying she'll get it, but she can't be discounted yet.

PolitiFact | All statements involving Barack Obama

Yup. Those same idiots.

Found this one to be very amusing. US politicians without a doubt believe the American people are stupid as hell and will beleive anything. Otherwise, why would you sit up there and blatantly lie like that?

If they are this stupid, would you want them having the finger on a nuclear button or making crucial economic/foreign policies? Is this all that America has to offer? This is sad.
meh close enough

lol

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I have to say...and don't read too much into this...I'm becoming a Michele Bachmann fan. Not because of her policies and not that I'd ever support her. Yeah, she's batty as hell sometimes, but she's not letting the media bait her into playing the victim and petty sniping. She's keeping her eye on the ball and pressing forward in a very serious way. I can respect that.

I suspect she'll only get stronger as the campaign rolls along. Is she smarter or a better politician than, say, Mitt Romney? Probably not, but I think people feel she's authentic.

So while the liberal media will make hay of her gaffes and try to diminish her candidacy, it's just a reminder to those that support her, as well as those who are thinking about it, that she's not your typical packaged Washington candidate. She needs a little polishing and she'll give old Mittens a run for his money.

She's the one that left that out.

She tends to leave a lot of things out apparently:

Quote:
Among them could be some of Bachmann's historical gaffes, most notably her assertion that the country's founding fathers "worked tirelessly" to abolish slavery. In fact, several founding fathers possessed slaves, with Thomas Jefferson famously fathering children with one of his.


Slavery was not abolished until almost 100 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Romney is as ho-hum of a candidate as they come. It's not going to take much for someone to outshine him.
