    Do you think Speaker Boehner has offered Michelle Backmann as a Pagan sacrfice for Obama?

    I'm not sure how paganism relates to such a topic, but I think the real question is, Do the Republicans genuinely feel that Obama is beatable in 2012?  The field of Republican candidates appear to be less than presidential, fail to inspire enthusiasm, and possess background elements that will come back to haunt them.

    I'm talking primarily here of Michelle Bachmann, Mitt Romney, and Sara Palin.  Of course, Bachmann can repair her tarnished image brought on by her laughable knowledge of U.S. history.  Romney will have to address the condition of the Massachusetts economy (47th in the nation when he left office) and find appreciable differences between his health care plan and that of Obama's so that he doesn't look too much like a RINO.  And Palin.  She's a documented quitter, can't speak off the cuff, has little conversational knowledge, and has no better pre-presidential resume than Obama had in 2008, which is among the top criticisms of the president.

    I have to admit that I don't know too much about Ron Paul.  I'll have to do some research.  But personalities aside, I think the voters taught the Republicans a dangerous lesson in 2010--a bad economy translates into votes for Republican candidates.  Could the Rs be orchestrating the economic recovery slowdown?  Is that why they're finding fault the current administration's decision to draw down petroleum reserves to lower the price at the pump?  Of course, there are plenty of nonpartisan reasons to question that move.

    But back to the original question--Boehner offering Bachmann as a sacrifice.  I don't think Boehner has that much power or influence in the party to handpicking anyone.

    Unless you can give a specific reason for your claim that boehner has offered backmann as "pagan" sacrifice, then I find your question extremely offensive. I am of a pagan path, and so far as I know, there haven't been any "pagan sacrifices" in thousands of years, and when there were, most of them were christians who sacrifices pagans.

    I am rather an expert on Pagan Sacrifics but thank you for your opinion Christine O'Donnell.  We can all guess what you answer is to "Tea or Coffee?". 

    Only you, Chirstine O'Donnel, Sarah Palin and M. Backmann could be offended by such a question.  The rest of us are LOL:)  Too bad and so sad you don't gett he joke!

    I thought Ralph Deeds remark was right on the money!!

    And FYI the post wasn't about you but about Backmann so don't steal her spotlight!!!
