Michelle Bachmann is running: Bad news for us

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/palin-20-bachmann-tells-abc-n...

This is bad news for America because Bachmann sounds like a real conservative on all issues but the war and police state issue (which most Republicans still support at least tepidly).

She will take votes from us if she manages to gain any traction. We need to make sure that doesnt happen and publicize her hypocrisy.

guys, Mitt Romney is out of

guys, Mitt Romney is out of the presidential race after making fun of the unemployed. He basically moved over so Bachmann can take the lead.

Like it or not Michele Bachmann will most likely be the next President. Americans are way too stupid and brainwashed to vote for Ron Paul, it will take at least another 15-20 years for his views to become mainstream.

Just read the titles...

"Michele Bachmann fascinating"..."Can Michele Bachmann Win The Iowa Caucuses?‎"..."Bachmann second to Romney" (yes, that's right, not "15% behind Romney" or "Romney first"...is about HER being second.

"Michele Bachmann: A conservative force for 2012‎"...."Tea Party darling"...etc. Just give her another month cause right know she's virtually unknown...

Congrats to anyone who understood very early that she will be the real danger to Ron Paul.

I believe that after this debate...

This can be removed from DP.

Bachmann is basically

Darth Cheney with boobs.

What does her record say?

That is the litmus test.

She voted for HR 271, HR 1905, HR1553. . .

These votes are for giving endless money to and even going to wars for our "never-to-be-denied" friend/dog-wagging-master Israel, if Israel should so demand.

Not a reassuring record when we need an INDEPENDENT (ie America-first) STRONG president of USA, who can rein in the deficit.

her voting record is not bad,

her voting record is not bad, but supporting Patriot Act showed she absolutely cannot be trusted

Did anybody seem to notice....

That Bachmann did not answer her questions? At least the first three or four. I guess if she blathers on incessantly (like Palin) she can't say anything wrong!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

I was angered at first to see her there

thinking that she might take votes from Ron Paul. But there could be two scenarios that would make her campaign a God send for RP2012.

A. Bachman gets the message out on a lot of the important messages and makes them seem mainstream. Then she steps out of the race before the votes and endorses Ron Paul.

B. Americans end up liking her a lot more than Ron Paul. RP steps out and we are still able to vote for an "ok" candidate. Bachman wins the nomination and picks RP as VP. No one attempts to assassinate Pres. Bachman for fear of putting RP in power. Meanwhile, she can lean on Ron Paul's ideas and experience.

Actually, I like the second scenario because I am sincerely worried about Ron Paul's safety. I'm an RP fan, but having an egg or two in MB's basket might not be a bad idea.

I am assuming at this point that Michele Bachman is sincere in her ideas and has the record to prove it.

Oh, yeah?

Check this out.

Sorry. I was trying to have a Polly Anna moment.

She is probably this season's version of Palin. Pops up out of nowhere talking like Ron Paul half the time and pushing the status quo the rest of the time.

The cameramen certainly gave her more than her fair share of the spotlight.

The advertisement of

"Michelle Bachman for president" on the front page of DP is freaking me out. I know it's only business but, it strikes me as a hijacking!

Is Anyone

Is anyone who comes to a site about Ron Paul going to be convinced to vote for Bachmann by an ad banner? We should be laughing at such a dumb waste of Bachmann's limited amount of funds. Why would anyone do that? It seems like such an obvious waste of money. With that said, let Romney advertise on here too. Nystrom can take all that money and beef up the site to lure even more disaffected voters to Dr. Paul's message.

You make a good point.

;)

The police state and Patriot Act should be made primary issues.

Most people don't know what's in the Patriot Act. That's why it keeps passing.

I'm willing to bet that most people are going along with these things because of how carefully they have been packaged and sold to the public. It's like the TSA groping issue. You cannot convince me that most Americans support it. The media is simply covering for the police state and obfuscating the issues.

Make these issues front and center, and Ron Paul wins.

Bachmann already has an image

Bachmann already has an image as a Looney Tunes character. Sort of a flakier version of Palin in the public's eyes.

I don't think she's a big threat.

Kev: Coming from a cartoonist

I take this comment seriously, smile.

I agree -- Libs in Hollywood despise her so as it nears closer they will rip her apart.

I think..

talking about her 23 foster children and 5 children hurt her last night. Kind of busy at home (or should be)....you think, to be President of the United States too.

Gee Whiz ... wasn't Herman

Gee Whiz ... wasn't Herman Cain the big new GOP splash after the South Carolina debate? Every week it seems the RNC cranks out their new jack-in-the-box candidate and now it's Michelle Bachman? ... PLEEZE! None of these jokers have any money and organized campaign to last. It is a well orchestrated attempt to saturate the field with tea party imposters riding Ron's coatails, but the problem is they are being forced to address true tea party talking points which is fine with me, go ahead keep it up! Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and probably Newt Gingrich will be the only ones with a substantial war chest ... the rest will fade away.

I think Bachmann scored the most points

of all Ron's opponents. She looked good, had the nicest smile, spoke clearly and cogently and forcefully, and displayed excellent grasp of the issues she addressed. She muffed just one thing that I heard, referring to military commanders as "commanders in chief," but do I think she doesn't know the difference? No.

She came across as bighearted, passionate, and intelligent, which I agree is big trouble for Ron. I wished the camera had stayed on her as the candidates left their podiums. I think she strode over to greet Ron.

Of the two Israel-firster women Bachmann is far better qualified

than Palin imo as well.

But still her pro-Patriot Act and HR 271, HR 1905, HR1553 Israel-firster-votes make her just emphatically UNACCEPTABLE.

Isn't that sort of like saying

that "Charles Manson is 'more qualified' than the Boston Strangler"?

They might be a little different from each other, but the end result is the same.

LOL!

I guess if they are all we had as choices,LOL!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Why settle with Pro-war, pro-Patrt Act fundies Amazon-ladies...

when we have Karen Kwiatowski, a retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, a woman who has the proven brain, courage and the wisdom, much in sync with Ron Paul's!?!

To us, agreed.

I hope there's enough of us.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Bachmann tried to HARD to win...

...the nomination last night with her rah rah Republican Party crap...then pulled the scripted "principle over party" line...yeah right!

She thinks she's gonna trump Dr. Paul with that?

He's been principle over party from DAY ONE!!!

.

After tonite

She will be hard pressed to get any sustainable donations and support imo.

I did not even recognize her, She is a former IRS lawyer?..lol

If you throw enough crap some of it's gotta stick right? At least that's the elite's hope.
