Will Bauchman have more to overcome than a run for Office?

    What do you think. As President would , world leaders respect Her enough, would the Arab Nations treat her equal? I think of Ms Thatcher and how she worked harder to be taken seriously, how tough she had to be, and how many times the behind closed doors comments flew, and some in the papers also.

    It's still a good ol Boys club out there.
    She seems the Best of the GOP, but will Old stereotypes and BS fog the way for her? Or have we grown up sense then?

    your thoughts if you care to please?

      I think it depends on how strong a fight she makes and a spine she keeps, as well as how much we supporters will not put up with, fighting along with her. We must make it painful for the good ol Boys to continue with business as usual. How hard will we fight them, is the question, I'm thinking.

        I think electing Obama was intended to make it painful for the good old boys to continue with business as usual. They HATE IT and are fighting back with everything they've got.
        Bachmann does stand out in the GOP lineup of GOBs.
        I need to read up on her accomplishments as a Congresswoman, committees she serves on, legislation she's championed, etc.
        One positive debate is not enough to obliterate her previously ditzy persona.
        It's a fact (fair or unfair) that she is compared constantly to Palin. And it's unclear at this point whether the GOP thinks that's good or bad.

        I think Hillary Clinton has proved herself on the international stage. Her cojones are as big as any Arab leader's!! smile

          I think Hill's are bigger!

          As for Bachmann, I thought she was a nut, but I have to admit she looked pretty smart in the debate. I still think she's too socially conservative to get elected. I want to learn more about Huntsman!

            Of course you thought she was a nut Habee. Did you think as a Republican the media was going to portray her in any other fashion ?
            I thought she had a good opening round in the debates. But I am far far away from making a choice for any candidate right now. One thing is for sure though. I won't be picking Obummer !

            Huntsman is as unelectable as Romney or Gingrich.  His positions are out of step on issues relevant to the current crop of Republican, conservative and independent voters.  These voters have no patience for that ancient brand of compromised Republicanism - one reason why conservatives sat on their hands in 2008.

            The litmus test for "social liberal, fiscal conservatives" ( a description of questionable merit) has been abortion.  Opinions about abortion have been changing for years.

            Bachmann's genuine conservatism won't be a barrier to success but Izvestia and Pravda will.

              Gotta agree with that one. No one wants a RINO. And his affiliation with the current administration is no feather in his cap by any means. Even USA Today acknowledged that in todays paper. And I wish Newt would go away too !

                I find it strange the the Republicans have come to the point that one must be 100% down the party line, without independent thinking, in order to garner support from the party. Think about this...Reagan raised taxes 3 times after he lowered them, expanded abortion rights farther than any other governor in history, declared amnesty for illegal aliens, sold arms to Iran illegally, illegally supported another war which resulted in the influx of cocaine into the US, etc....how would Reagan fare in the Republican party today, the party who touts him as their savior? I suggest he would be considered more liberal than Obama after Glenn Beck and Fox got through with the reporting.

          You mean by pledging those billions to Pakistan and trying to drag us into Libya on behalf of NATO there MM ? And I have no doubt she had to know about our operations in Yemen.

          New (illegal) War in Libya

          Secret (illegal) War in Yemen

          Acts of War against Pakistan

          Iraq and Afghanistan still going strong.

          Iran is, according to IAEA, a nuclear power.

          Egypt is now run by the radical Muslim Brotherhood

          Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain tanking

          China surging

          North Korea still crazy

          The international successes of the Barry/Hillary foreign policy mechanism.

          At least Huma Wiener is gaining from Hillary's one area of expertise.  Keeping a criminal, lying, perverted husband in his office after he successfully soiled it.

          Awesome.

          Last time I checked Barry was male.  So the Democrat good old boys network went with race before sex in tossing Hillary aside in 2008.

      I was impressed with Bachmann more than the other candidates.  We need to look at the records of all the candidates and what their records have shown.  Bachmann presented herself well.  Getting elected will be a tough battle for her as no woman has ever held that post but is should not be impossible.  It depends on who she surrounds herself with and if she is the nominee of the GOP who her running mate will be.

    Bachmann is just another cold hearted, cruel, conservative Republican, after all she only took in 23 foster children. 

    Hillary is working out so well as SOS - "Bashir AL Assad is a reformer" a reformer in ways of slaughtering his own people.
                                            "Mubarak must go" - now the Brotherhood is doing virginity checks - another great leap forward for women while Hillary, the cuckold, steps on herself.
                                             "He ran a gas station down in St. Louis... No, Mahatma Gandhi was a great leader of the 20th century.” – showing off her diplomacy chops early
                                              "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base." --on visiting Bosnia in 1996, contradicting other accounts that said there was no threat of gunfire. Clinton later said she "misspoke"  So brave in her own mind.

    Bachmann just cannot hold a candle to that kind of brilliance.
