Wow - 200 hundred people. We had more than that for my parents anniversary. No news here. She is such a sad example of a human being. No brains or common sense and all mouth. My granddaughter has more sense and understanding of the issues.

I hope she runs!

Win or lose (a certainty) we are rid of her.

Then she can be Palin version 2.0.

I will be watching for locusts, frogs, boils, and blood in the Mississippi. Bachmann running for president would be just such a plague on humanity. BTW -- Strappy heels in frigid Iowa? Should this woman run the free world when she cannot make appropriate -- dare I say it -- Conservative shoe choices?

Predictably, the libs run to their keyboards at the very mention of a strong conservative woman, whether Bachmann or Palin. Why the need to vilify these women if not the terror they hold for the libs in the coming election? I know that it is not good to scare the children, but in this case they are scaring themselves. It's almost like sitting around the campfire on a dark night, telling ghost stories about the boogie man who's gonna getcha.
Childish indeed.

Quit insulting women.

A woman who lies and fear mongers and says wacky outrageous things is not strong. Any woman can do that, if they have no ethics.
She is so sad

It's all sort of sad. She is another example of these delusional rightwingers. And like a true sociopath, she truly believes this rubbish. Similarly to these wacko fascists like Palin and Santorum, she is operating on a whole different planet. They have so much anger over this racial thing; they just can't stand the fact that a black man became President. This is all about this minority of odd white people who enable other hateful people to act out their sick fantasies. And they don't even have the cajones to own up to it. They deny the symptoms: Palin using anti-semitic language and denying the crosshairs reference; Santorum making nutty cracks about black people not understanding people as well as whites. 10 years ago this insanity would have been seen for what it is: fringe wierdness that does not deserve the attention it somehow is getting. But we live in a world where a prominent network hires reactionary rightwingers who fell the necessity to lie to keep their ratings high and their wallets full. Hopefully people will wake up and see this insanity as a real danger for the future of our country. Is it all that different than what we experience in Germany in the 30's?

I love the fact she's worried about our threats to liberty. Like the freedom of choice? Freedom of religion?
Freedom of speech?("Are they pro-America or anti-America?")
This woman is a threat to freedom.
Please nominate her. She would cause a landslide the other way.

A true conservative strikes fear into the hearts of the liberals / socialists / communists posting in this thread! They fear an end to the welfare state, nanny state that they depend upon for their pathetic existence!

Soon big government will be brought down, life long welfare receipients will be cut off, government unions will be broken, and freedom will reign! Truth is you pathetic lefties need the productive private sector or the economy to leech off of, so do not bite the hand that feeds you!

You sure get defensive when they start talking about dismantling the welfare state don't you!? Small government, individual freedom (with the responsibility that goes with it), the Constitution that founded this Nation, these are alien concepts to you. You are not worthy of being an American. You are a born loser who got worse with age!
