One thing we do know she was not is a history teacher. Since she lived in Alaska, I'm going to say probably the fishing industry.
Just don't ask her about Paul Revere

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

Pawlenty proposes three-tier income tax system - Yahoo! News
Quote:
In a speech expected to be heavy on specifics, Pawlenty was ready to propose a three-tier income tax system:

The estimated 45 percent of U.S. households that did not pay income taxes in 2010 would see no change in their tax rates.

Individuals would pay 10 percent tax on the first $50,000 of income. Couples earning $100,000 would also pay that rate.

"Everything above that would be taxed at 25 percent," Pawlenty said.

He also wanted to cut business taxes, reducing the current rate from 35 percent to 15 percent.

Why do ****ing idiots keep thinking that cutting taxes to businesses are going to "create more jobs!!"? The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. I guess the GOP isn't even remotely trying to hide who they represent these days.

"I think it's ironic that he's talking about a fiscal plan for the entire country when he left his state a mess," Gov. Mark Dayton said in an interview. "He decided he was going to leave and left it to his successor. They knew they were going to kick this down the road."
Irony indeed.

Im glad someone brought this up. What was more ridiculous the fact she said it or the fact she throws up defense for it. This is why i cant stand her, just admit you misspoke and move on. Instead she makes it worst and gets people to even go to the point of changing Wikipedia to support her...Even after I thought i couldnt lose anymore respect for her, I do.

Formidable ticket? ...lol Only if dumbasses are voting.

Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the follow challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education:
I'd vote for that high schooler first.

Michele Bachmann is a non-starter. With the batshit crazy stuff that she has said, including anti-feminist statements, she will be crushed. Her candidacy shouldn't be take seriously at all.

Well the problem really is convincing the majority of the country to be smart enough to nominate and vote for Huntsman. As brilliant and well qualified as he is, he doesn't have that mass appeal, not yet at least.

Here's your annointed one.


I would say most 3rd graders know there are 50 states. And I would assume you voted for Obama...

She makes Palin look tame in comparison. I agree, I don't see her as a legit candidate.

You really aren't observant, that much is certain. Have you not seen my posts bashing Obama? Yet you still post away furiously referring to him as my "anointed one?" I suggest you reread many of my posts when it comes to the two parties.

So what would be your solution to creating more jobs? Taxing businesses more? Making it difficult for businesses to operate and earn a profit?

It is you who must observe and not infer....my "furious" two line post was really tongue in check to show all politicans make mistakes, and all I assumed was that you voted for Obama, based on the content of your posts. And if you respond honestly, I'll bet I'm correct in my assumption.

And just to be fair, I'll throw this out, I voted for McCain in 2008.
