While Sara Palin was contemplating if it would be more profitable to run or not to run,for her economic future that is, which is obviously the only thing that matters to her, a star was born. Michele Bachmann, must've gone to presidential candidate university and prepared herself real well, because she is looking like the most capable and attractive presidential candidate on the republican side by far except for chris christie and he is definitely not running.If Sarah Palin should decide to run ,the inevitable comparison would make her look even more unprepared than the last time around.
Sara is primping for 2016, they are trying to stop Bauchman, the goog ole boys broadcaster club is.
to tell you the truth I don't think there's any 2016 in sarah palin's future if she doesn't run there were already credibility issues before this election cycle if she sits it out I'm not saying there's not a great future ahead for her , but it won't be in electoral politics.
Bachmann has a strength of character and a resolve that even Palin didn't exhibit.
And a more effective method of speech delivery.
All candidates have to decide if it would be profitable for their political futures. I see nothing to infer that is all Palin cares about. Bachman is smart, always has been, nothing new there. The problem is Bachman and Palin are smarter than the average American, or as is so evident, the average news reporter, who keep getting shown up by both of them.
Michelle "the gangster" Bachmann has a lot of splainin' to do.
"While Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., has forcefully denounced the Medicaid program for swelling the "welfare rolls," the mental health clinic run by her husband has been collecting annual Medicaid payments totaling over $137,000 for the treatment of patients since 2005, according to new figures obtained by NBC News.
The $161,000 in payments from the Minnesota Department of Human Services to her husband's clinic appear to contradict some of Michelle Bachmann's public accounts this week when she was first asked about the extent to which her family has benefited from government aid.
Questions about the Bachmann family's receipt of government funds arose this week after a Los Angeles Times story reported that a family farm in which Michelle Bachmann is a partner had received nearly $260,000 in federal farm subsidies.
"She's giving hypocrisy a bad name," said Ron Pollock, executive director of Families USA, a consumer health care advocacy group, when asked about the Medicaid payments to Bachmann & Associates. "It's clear when it feathers her nest she's happy for Medicaid expenditures. But people that really need it — folks with disabilities and seniors — she's turning their backs on them."

Seeing a pattern here???
Yup. She appears to be a "Do as I say, not as I do" person....
Hubby gets money from gvt, farm gets money from gvt, supplements her income (her words) with foster-kid money from gvt....
Has a gvt job, 5 kids and husband on tax-payer-funded healthcare...
YET, the gvt is "gangster".....
Honey----what does that make YOU?
That is so typical of the right though, is it really fair to single out one person for hypocrisy when they are all riddled with it?
BTW, good to see you back,have a little holiday did we
Just heard on the news: Tom Petty has issued a cease and desist order on Bachmann for using his song in her campaign!
"Take it easy Baby, make it last all night".....Go Shorty!
Bachmann is as nutty as Palin. The GOP has a better chance of nominating a sock puppet than those two.
bachman is yet another religiously impaired candidate. There are many others, but her and Palin take first prize for lunacy.
I WOULDN'T put palin and bachman in the same category only because palin is a bimbette, and bachman although is capable of saying outrageous things is smart, and much more tenacious and motivated ideologically.
Some have suggested Palin is planning to run for the Senate in Arizona (or possibly Congress).
That would get her into the national scene rather than sitting it out.
But 2012 would be a bad move on her part. Actually, running any year would be a bad move for her, but that's just my opinion .
Agree with the OP that Bachmann seems to have aced candidate school. She sounds a lot better these days. But she's still making gaffes and is being held to scrutiny.
A concerning thought: Bill Clinton said nice things about her (admittedly, they were centered on her taking in those 23 foster kids). Like that is the only training one needs to run the United States? Seriously?
you make good points, that could be her strategy, as far as clinton's comments ,he is a sly fox, the clintons are hands down the dirtiest players in the game,thank god they're on our side i really wish obama would have the humility to recognize this and form what would be an undefeatable alliance , because who has more experience than the clintons in defeating the republican attack machine?
Clinton the only Democrat to win a second term in how many decades???
Although I wish Hillary had won, I think Obama gave Hillary the right job (better than VP which is way less powerful).
There's really only 1 issue that can bring Obama down and that's the economy. And that happens to be a subject Mr. Clinton knows a thing or two about. So yes, he'd be prudent to seek out his counsel.
Why is it there is no Democrat equivalent of Karl Rove, I keep wondering????
"Why is it there is no Democrat equivalent of Karl Rove" Maybe it's because of a credibilty issue? That's my guess. Rove claimed that Obabma made apologies for America which has no basis. Another rumor. Dems and liberals (with credibility) spend more time making corrections to the stories spread by right wing nutcases like Beck, Limbaugh and so one. Bill Clinton has to be one of most most successful politicians since Teddy Roosevelt and seems to have just as much or more clout now than when he was in the White House.
Obama went all over the world apologizing to everyone about America.
What are talking about... a rumor. He couldn't stop bowing, literally!, scraping and apologizing for the firt year in office, to every head of a foriegn state he could crawl to.
And that is a fact.
And there is a Deocrat "Karl Rove" type... it is Karl Rove, the man is a Progressive and is just as responsible for destroying this nation as his Leant Leftists cohorts.
Socialist, Democrat, Progressive, Liberal, Blue Dog Democrat, Social Moderates... they hide under many names these day.
All Socialists to one degree or another.
Just scared to call themselves what they are.
You just proved you can't tell the difference between a fact and an opinion.
---"Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has "a moral responsibility to act" on arms control because only the U.S. had "used a nuclear weapon." In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by "just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy" -- as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not "pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors" because we "failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas."---

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne … llies.html
Even Matt Lauer know he apologizes everywhere for America.
That is all the man does is down America and speak of how bad we are and need to, "change", to a groveling second world nation.
I don't try to pass off videos that are one thing, as another, just to attack someone, Doug. As if no one is going to watch them.
Then run when they are cought and ignore it happened.
You have zero credibilty, Doug.
You quoted a series of statements by Obama, all factually correct, and none of them apologies.
They simply were not arrogant.
I agree, I don't see the words "apologize" or "sorry" or anything that resembles an apology in what Obama told the French. So far no has produced an exact quote from Obama that resembles an apology.
that's what i was trying to say before , there are rove equivalents in the democratic party , but most of them are on clinton's corner, so unless there is a truly unified alliance within the democratic party between the two centers of power which are the clintons on one side and ted kennedy's represented by obama on the other the republicans are given an advantage.
Propaganda technique #2:
2. "Character Assassination/Ad Hominem. Fox does not like to waste time debating the idea. Instead, they prefer a quicker route to dispensing with their opponents: go after the person's credibility, motives, intelligence, character, or, if necessary, sanity. No category of character assassination is off the table and no offense is beneath them. Fox and like-minded media figures also use ad hominem attacks not just against individuals, but entire categories of people in an effort to discredit the ideas of every person who is seen to fall into that category, e.g. "liberals," "hippies," "progressives" etc. This form of argument - if it can be called that - leaves no room for genuine debate over ideas, so by definition, it is undemocratic. Not to mention just plain crass."
karl rove is a progressive and a liberal, everybody who is not a right wing extremist loon is a socialist, you can not be serious, the damage these people are inflicting on the republican party may be too big to overcome, and if a serious third party candidate which is very possible may emerge decides to run it will not only guarantee obama's reelection it will also determine the demise of the republican party as a party able to win a presidential election, only because the party base keeps shrinking.they sure talk a lot about reagan, meanwhile reagan managed to not only broaden the base of the party but also attract independent voters, moderates and what is unthinkable today reagan democrats, can you even imagine talking about bachman democrats , or santorum democrats ,or whatever republican democrats?
Rove is a Progressive, and they are not Republicans... they just play the role and have had control of the party for a century now. They have helped to skew this whole country Left of center for way too long, and way too far.
If you think Romney, Bush, Rove, Perry, or any of the establishmoen Republicans- are true Republicans, or Conservatives... then you do not know a thing about our poilitical spectrum.
Republicans are right of center... Progressives at most can be called Centrists, and that is giving them credit they do not deserve.
This country has gone way too far to the Left in the last Century, and we are a failing nation because of those policies pushed by the Socialist Liberal Democrat/Progressive Agenda. Open Borders, Centralized Authority, Welfare State, un-enforced Laws, Bailouts and subsidies, Stimuluses, etc... the list goes on.
All failures of policy, implimented with the desire to collapse our system and re-structure it in thier own image.
All they have to do is get that Pesky U.S.Constitution out of the way... and it is on, America will be dead. And they are well under-way on the push to tear up the U.S. Constitution, or nullify it completely.
America is and always has been a Center Right country... not a European Socialist Style Govt... and the Marxist commie lovin anti-American in the White House will not survive 2012, and niether will many Progressives or Socialist Democrats.
Karl Marx was a Jew....I thought you said Obama is an anti-semite. How can he love him?
The United States have been a socialist country since George Washington took the oath of office and established government funded services. Someone needs to stop listening to clowns like Limbaugh and Beck and think for themself for a change.
Palin just scares me to death and some of it has to do with her experience as a mayor and a governor, but most of it is derived from her beliefs.
hey let's not get carried away,he may be a despicable excuse of a talking head, but we must not wish him ill personally, we must always separate the person from the character he portrays to make money even if he makes money from the neanderthal dittoheads,who don't believe in education, period and call schools screwls and honor and revere being ignorant.

What's your opinion on Palin?My opinion is pretty simple. She's the dumbest person ever to get to participate in politics. My 14 year old son could run a state better than she is doing.I just saw on ET she's actually using her power to keep her ex son in law from seeing the child he has with...
