Default Congresswoman Bachmann

speaking today said that the shot heard round the world was fired at Lexington and Concord in New Hampshire. As you may recall she recently opined that the founding fathers ended slavery. This woman makes Palin and Christine-I'm not a witch"-O'Donnell look like geniuses, and that isn't easy to do.

I do think the difference is that Obama made an honest mistake whereas Bachman proves her lack of basic knowledge almost everytime she opens her mouth. Her lack of knowledge for someone who may have Presidential ambitions is scary.

How lame. It's always just an honest mistake when a Democrat says something dumb. Hypocrisy on display.

Can you please provide one example of a ridiculous statement that Palin has said? And "I can see Russia from my house" doesn't count; that was actually said by Tina Fey in a SNL Palin parody.

Default Forget The Number Of States Comment...

...the woman is looney tunes. What's disturbing is that she has one of 435 votes in the House that governs this country. By the way, there are more like her, both in the GOP as well as on the Democrat side of the aisle. Maxine Waters and Barney Frank come to mind, but I'm sure given a few minutes I could think of others. What's even more scary is that just by getting re-elected a few times, folks like this actually are elevated to positions of leadership in our Congress, based mostly on seniority.

Congresswoman Bachmann is an excellent example of how someone like her can have extraordinary influence on our lives. She's lived her life as a conservative religious activist. Politically, she had only five years experience as a Minnesota State Senator before being elected to the U.S. House in 2006. She had actually been elevated to a leadership position in the Minnesota Senate for a few months before the Republican leader fired her for "philosophical differences". Now, in her third term in the U.S. House, she's navigated herself to be the head of a major caucus of Representatives. Is she the type of person you want having a significant influence over the governance of our country? Just listen to her statements. Try to figure out her thought process.

What's scary is that people like this can actually have a significant impact on how our lives are lived. I guess the best we can hope is that there are an equal number of goofballs in both parties to offset one another so the rest of the House can do the people's business. But it does make you wonder how in the world tens of thousands of people elected folks like this, doesn't it?

You know what? I don't care if Bachman got a couple of facts about history wrong. A lot of people including the current President and even myself do so also. What's important is that she's expanded the dialogue in the political area; contributing to a movement which is demanding governmental accountability for the economic mess it's put us in and is in the forefront of the attempt to take governmental control away from the socialist leaning leftists who disrespect the idea of American excellence. You won't hear Michelle Bachman apologizing for America's greatness.

How many Palin quotes do you want, I have more!

1. "As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border." --Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska's proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, interview with CBS's Katie Couric, Sept. 24, 2008 (Watch video clip)

2. "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil." -Sarah Palin, in a message posted on Facebook about Obama's health care plan, Aug. 7, 2009

3. "All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

4. "Well, let's see. There's ― of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there's never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but ―" --Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

5. "'Refudiate,' 'misunderestimate,' 'wee-wee'd up.' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!'" --a Tweet sent by Sarah Palin in response to being ridiculed for inventing the word "refudiate," proudly mistaking her illiteracy for literary genius, July 18, 2010

6. "But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." --Sarah Palin, after being asked how she would handle the current hostilities between the two Koreas, interview on Glenn Beck's radio show, Nov. 24, 2010

7. "Especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible." --Sarah Palin, defending her fiery campaign rhetoric in the wake of the Arizona shooting massacre by invoking a phrase ("blood libel") that typically refers historically to the alleged murder of Christian babies by Jews, Jan. 12, 2011

8. "We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C. ... We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation." --Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in Greensboro, N.C., Oct. 16, 2008

9. "We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn't that ironic?" --Sarah Palin, admitting that her family used to get treatment in Canada's single-payer health care system, despite having demonized such government-run programs as socialized medicine that will lead to death-panel-like rationing, March 6, 2010

10. "Ohh, good, thank you, yes." --Sarah Palin, after a notorious Canadian prank caller complimented her on the documentary about her life, Hustler's "Nailin Paylin," Nov. 1, 2008 (Read more about the prank call, watch the video and see the transcript)

Funny story but true. I was txting my wife the other day about a potato. My Blackberry corrected my spelling to "potatoe."

Dan Quayle, it wasn't your fault. It was on the card that way.

Sheila Jackson-Lee, it was your fault. We did not put a flag on Mars.

But my all time favorite........Guam tipping over.

Oh yeah, Michelle Bachmann adds to the discussion on economics by making comments like this:

"If we took away the minimum wage - if conceivably it was gone - we could potentitally virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level."

But my personal favorite:

"Not all cultures are equal."

This woman makes Palin look like a rocket scientist, and that ain't easy.

Liberals just love to hate Republican women. I could undoubtably find dozens of stupid comments by liberals, besides the few already posted in this thread; but the fact is I don't care to. I'm not unnerved by the left in the same way the left is terrified of the rise and influence of the conservative woman.

It will be very interesting to see if the liberals strategy of political ridicule, the only tactic left to them as they cannot afford to run on the issues, will have their desired effect.

I say "fine"; Liberals run on ridicule, Conservatives will run on issues and we'll see which strategy resonates with the American public.

Default Congresswoman Bachman

Good for you Richielion I happen to agree. I moved down from MN and if you want to meet some loonies talk to some of those DFL'ers that is the Democrat/ Farmers Federation which was combined under Hubert H. In fact take a look at Al Franken who by the way literally stole the election. there still finding votes stuffed in strange places all through MN or for that matter Jesse Ventura.

I personally like Bachman. Her family has some prominence in MN and have been good corporate and personal citizens. I like that she has called out Obama and in all those isues was right including the $100 million plus hidden in the ObamaCare bill.

I don't care if Bachman or Palin say they can see Russia from here. Because I do appreciate that they have the sense to know that Russia is still the enemy and as such would not sign a disarmament agreement that greatly favors Russia. You all probably read Victor Hanson's account of Obama's foreign policy blunders and he was being kind. The only mystery for me is if Obama's actions are intentional or unintentional (i.e. simply way over his head) I like these fighting felines they may get some of those complacent timid lacking intestinal fortitude male counter parts to stand up on their hind legs and do what is best for this country

and of course he things our military are corpsemen, not corpsmen.. but we are to assume he knows that too.

Want some more Obama mistake?? try youtube.

The Truth is everyone makes mistakes and it is only the political weak that have to resort to calling republicans stupid or unqualified when they make one, and then they become hypocrites when their candidates make similar mistakes.
