Although, I never entertained the thought of voting for her before becoming a Ron Paul supporter, Michele Bachmann was the only candidate other than Ron Paul that opposed raising the debt ceiling in 2011 and along with Ron Paul voted against it. She was the only candidate that managed to give a clear refutation of Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan. Others would have been able to as well, but, you've got to be able to speak quickly and understandably in debates - something she was better at than most of the others. She and Rick Perry were the only other two Republican candidates who were serious about balancing our budget within a finite time without raising taxes.
I viewed her foreign policy with as much fear as Neocons viewed Ron Paul's, but, she's a good Conservative on most domestic issues, especially on right-to-life and the economy. She didn't have a chance though, because she doesn't have Palin or Hilary's personality. It was fun watching her run Timmy Pawlenty outta Iowa though.
