Posted on 01/06/12 at 10:52 pm in response to Will Bachmann run again? Pros and cons

MB's supporters don't give a rats ass what Team Obama media jackals think about MB's chances or what advice MB should take. Her supporters will easily re-elected her in MN if she cares to run again.

Posted on 12/16/11 at 10:06 am in response to PolitiFact: Bachmann wrong on PolitiFact claim

At the time that the abortion issue arose as part of welfare reform, at least one of the Republicans Gingrich supported and campaigned for did accept partial birth abortion. Gingrich was aware of this at the time.
Bachmann was substantively correct on her charge. Gingrich's reference to his voting record was irrelevant to MB specific, concrete charge, which was accurate. She did not refer to his "voting record."
MB has has had the courage and determination to catch out Newt on...

A great interview with Fallon for MB. She looks sharp, as usual.

Posted on 11/21/11 at 11:26 am in response to Bachmann book plays up political betrayal

An unusually fair minded book review from Devin Henry. It is about time that MN journalists, even on the Left, come to a fair minded appreciation of what a dynamic and important national figure has grown up in our midst, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, the most courageous and principled Constitutional Conservative on the American political stage.

Posted on 11/16/11 at 11:17 pm in response to Bachmann to cast her first vote in more than a month

What Devin Henry conveniently left out of her anti-Bachmann blog was that there have been no substantive votes in the House in the last month, only procedural votes, from which the Speaker routinely excuses Republican members, since he has a large majority. Typical MinnPost anti-Bachmann "news coverage" and such transparent Team Obama propaganda.

Posted on 11/15/11 at 10:36 am in response to Bachmann says Bush practiced 'bailout socialism'

I have also read those passages. Black quotes them out of context, which shows that Bush was a minor sinner compared with the scale of Obama's crony capitalism.

Posted on 11/15/11 at 10:41 pm in response to In a new video, Bachmann questions candidates' conservative values

A great ad and right on target.
I saw MB in Henniker, NH on 8/30/11 where she gave a speech to indifferent, not to say hostile students and media. She is the most fantastic retail politicion I've ever seen. By the end of the 1-hour speech and Q&A, she had won over most of the audience. She is the real deal: a knowledgeable and principled Constitutional Conservative. She is a long shot at getting the nomination. But if she does, she will wipe the floor with Hussein Obama. The fear...

Posted on 11/14/11 at 09:38 am in response to Busy Bachmann talks 'media bias,' Penn State, waterboarding

"An email from a CBS producer who predicted that Bachmann would not receive many questions from moderators Scott Pelley and Major Garrett."
The email is not a "supposed smoking gun" It proves that CBS intended their anti-Bachmann bias to do what they in fact did: ask Bachmann fewer (60%) questions than asked of Romney and Gingrich.
When you predict what in fact you do, then it shows intent, in this case intent of bias.
A recent SmartPolitics analysis found that former...

Posted on 11/10/11 at 11:59 pm in response to 'Occupy' protesters interrupt Bachmann speech

This shows the violent and totalitarian core at the heart of the radical Left, which talks about free speech but insists on silencing those with whom they disagree: "Free speech for me, but not for thee."
These OWS nihilist hooligans have taken their cue from Princess Pelosi and Hussein Obama, both of whom have praised them. Bachmann has been the most courageous and honorable among in the political class for labeling the OWS crowd for what it is: an organized mob of Communists and...
