Was anybody here a Bachmann fan?

2012 GOP contenders have no regrets as they watch Obama inauguration

Former GOP presidential contenders Newt Gingrich and Rep. Michele Bachmann had hoped to be taking the oath of office on Monday, but they were all smiles as they lined up to watch President Obama deliver an Inaugural address for the second time.

Bachmann (R-Minn.) was snapping photos with her iPhone as she waited in a procession line in the Capitol with other members of Congress.

“This is history,” she told her colleagues.

Bachmann was briefly a front-runner for the Republican nomination after she won the Iowa straw poll in August 2011. She faded in the polls soon after, however, and dropped out of the race in early 2012.

Far from regretful, Bachmann told The Hill it was “a thrill” to watch Obama’s second inauguration.

Still a fan?

Wrong band

Radar Love was done by Golden Earring, not BTO.


I lost a bet to my husband on that once already.... glad there was no one betting me! lol!
What can I say? I was "under the influence" that decade...

I think she's kind of cute

But that's about it. Yep, just posted that. Good thing my name really isn't f-buzz!

Bachmann Won the Christian Pandering Award - IMHO

As a Christian, that lady made me cringe. She was NEVER a front-runner in truth; she was just another willing pawn to be used in the grand game of taking Ron Paul out of the mix.

I'd climb into a skunky dumpster and spend the night before I'd shake that woman's hand!

She was a close second to

She was a close second to Santorum actually. But otherwise you are spot on about her.


Bachman fan.

In my opinion...

...Bachmann was one of several candidates, wholly owned by the establishment, whose task was to divide the conservative vote to ensure a Romney victory. She was/is a neocon playing a conservative on TV: same as Santorum, Cain, Gingrich, and all the other "not Romneys" they trotted out.

play for the same team. Two teams: Authoritarians and non-authoritarians.
