Bachmann vs. Paul debate

I'm posting this on the DP because I think we all know that if this idea is spread, then it very well could happen. I'm sure the campaign keeps up with the DP regularly. So please make sure to VOTE this up and share this post if you agree.

The Ron Paul campaign should challenge Michele Bachmann to a debate. If she declines, she will appear to be threatened and it may be news worthy? it could not hurt the Paul campaign, but could hurt hers.
It could be sponsored by various groups including the revolution super PAC, C4L, the national Tea Party (not a fan) or any other groups willing to sponsor it.
If the main stream news media is not interested in covering the debate, I'm sure RT or another media outlet would.
We could have a real moderator like Tom woods, jack hunter, or the judge. The questions would be about real policy issues rather than the crap were forced to listen to on fox.

I'm sure we could all pool our resources and make this happen, just like the other amazing things that we supported in the last election. If the msm wants to ignore the people, then we can make it happen on our own!

If would like to see this happen, please help keep the post active and hopefully it will make the front page? Other ideas are welcome below.

my take...

bachman voted for the patriot act- thats a good enough reason for me to never consider giving her my vote. most of the jobs that perry "created" were in government. so much for "limited government".... he cant have my vote either. all those other empty suits are just wanting power and money. so, the only logical choice is the good doctor....
now- did anyone else hear that our government allowed 2 million dollars worth of cocaine to enter the us? i caught a bit over the net, havent heard anything on it from the media. but if its true, we have GOT to get ron paul in the white house. he is the ONLY honest politician i have ever heard. we need him to clean up washington. operation gunrunner, fast and furious, so much going on that needs to be addressed. i want to see everyone responsible for these illegal operations sitting in prison or extradited to face justice in mexico. wouldnt hurt my feelings if they bring out the firing squad and televise it.
wish we could vote today.
impeach obama, fire biden, president ron paul, 2011!!!
peace.

ron in 12!

Great idea

Great idea

The tides are changing!

the only debate that night

would be in bachmanns head.

"should i step foot on that stage?"

Ron Paul

Zing!

Good one! ;)

No benefit for Bachmann so I doubt she'd do it.

Also, note that Bachmann and Paul have avoided sparring. They're friends. If they do debate, I expect it to be very civil and issue-directed, nothing like the Bachmann-Pawlenty exchange.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Exactly!

They can have a civil debate between two like minded conservatives in which her flaws will shine through. A strictly Issue driven debate.

Again, if she declines, then it will only look better for the Paul campaign

Bachman Is A Fake Ron Paul

Her entire existence in the presidential race is to pretend that she's the libertarian candidate who cares about changing the status quo

And even if Bachman means well, she's far more susceptible to corruption than Ron Paul is

The fact that the establishment is propping her up makes me question if she's already bought and paid for

It's not a bad idea but I

It's not a bad idea but I doubt Bachmann would agree to a debate with Ron Paul. She sat in on Ron's congressional meetings and probably learned much from him -- not enough, though. I sense she feels intimidated by Ron's knowledge of the constitution and economics. She did not challenge him at the last debate.

Perhaps more importantly, her handlers would not go for it. She is leading him in the polls (for now). There is no upside for her to debate Ron, and much potential downside.

If the offer is made and she declines, the media will not report on it. They ignored Ron when he finished a very close second at Ames. They are not going to report on anything that brings attention to his campaign. Remember, the media is the enemy.

It's still worth trying. Offer to debate every one of the establishment "front runners." Who knows? Maybe one will accept. Even if it's broadcast only over the internet and spread via YouTube, it would reach a lot of people.

Freedom Watch

If he challenges her to debate on Freedom Watch then it will be picked up, if not, WE will spread it! My whole point in this idea was to show how little she really does know. If she declined, again, we have nothing to lose, but we can also spread that around.

It would be news worthy.

Bachman FEARS Ron Paul

Bachmans whole claim to fame is that she tries her best to sound like ron paul. Did you see in the debate when wallace asked her a question that pitted her directly against RP? Did you see that big gulp she took? And did you notice that she did not retort to his retort? She wants no part of it. That shows fear and it should be exploited.

I wish cain, santorum, gingrich and the other guy would quit. They are just taking up time and space. THATS WHAT WE SHOULD DO! Have the 3rd and 4th tier candidates drop out and that would leave perry, romney, bachman and palin. And actually RP should challenge them all to a debate. RP vs the world

I made my post (above) before

I made my post (above) before reading your comment. I noticed the same thing about her fearing Ron Paul. Her understanding of the Constitution is seriously flawed. She thinks the federal government can nullify a state's health care law, and the protections in the Bill of Rights don't apply to non-U.S. citizens. Wrong on both counts. She's in over her head.

bachmann will be gone soon enough

I don't think she is worth the time, but mittens or perry or WHOEVER the msm is pretending is BIG then that is who he should debate.

Debating bachmann is like debating santorum

its a waste of time since they won't be around for long. I also don't see bachmann wanting to do this as she would then give credibility to ron paul which no one in the republican party want.

She also would be realized as being a FAKE constitutionalist compared to ron paul and lose a TON of voters and donators.

that's the point..

For all of the people that claim the tea party label, she wil be exposed if she were to debate him. If she declines, then it shows fear.

Harvesting..

The benefit of debating Bachmann is that her supporters are probably the best bet for bringing onboard.

The race is in four now. Perry, Romney, Bachmann and Paul.

Time will work in our favour. Every economic problem drives votes to Paul, but what we need to insure is that when and if any of those campaigns falter, we pick up as much of the outflow as possible.

rick perry and MB, are both "teaparty" favorites.

the good Dr, is winning in a landslide. just let things play out.
we, are the teaparty.

rick perry is NOT a tea party anything

Just because fox calls him that doesn't make it fact. Bachmann shouldn't even beconsidered but she is much closer than perry ever will be.

Perry is an evil man

what is tea party about him, his record or while gov?

Debate both

He should challenge both to a debate! My point here is to get a REAL debate between the viable candidates but NOT a debate sponsored by FOX. More of us flexing the grassroots muscles and showing we can do this on our own.
