High Schooler Challenges Michelle Bachmann to Debate
The Minnesota Independent ^ | 5/13/11 | Andy Birkey

A high school sophomore from New Jersey is challenging Rep. Michele Bachmann to a debate on civics and the U.S. Constitution. In an open letter to to Bachmann, Amy Myers of Cherry Hill, N.J., said, “I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted.”

Another teenager thinking they know better.....till reality slaps them square in the face. Reminds me of many of the first year university students I teach in history who claim to be so knowledgeable in various matters ...till I give them their first quiz...on their first day of class....reality sucks, huh? =.=

I wonder whose interpretation of the U.S. Constitution the little girl intends to use. The one the Founding Fathers had or the one poured into her skull by her Marxist indoctrinators.

I hope she starts this brainwashed know-it-all with the hypo of forcing the A students in the class to average their GPA with the D and F students.

Exactly. What they're teaching these days bears little resemblance to reality.

No "news" here. This isn't about what some snot nosed 15 year old said - who cares; the biased pr*cks in the media have merely found yet another way to set a conservative up for lose lose public relations debacle.

I hate em - the legacy press can't go belly up soon enough for me.

Why doesn't she start with people like Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Obama, Reid, Kerry, Franken, etc.?

Those would be easy pickings for someone that can write a nice letter like the one allegedly wrote challenging Bachmann.

Apparently the little Sophomore protagonist is OK with The Bamster’s geographical statement of 57 states in America or his pronunciation of Marine Corps as in corpse. Yet he is the smartest guy in the room.

Typically, in situations like this....the parent of the kid is the driving force. We can make an assumption that Mom or Dad is a very out-spoken individual who has helped to guide their kid to be a debate artist...having all the right bullet statements and crafted various come-back lines. The smartest thing is lead the kid to the Constitution and ask them defend freedom of speech. That usually messes up the kid’s entire argument from that point on.

Except for the extraordinary exception, I don’t take seriously the opinions of those under 25 (make that 30 if they’ve attended a state-run liberal arts college — takes at least five years to recover from the indoctrination).

“A high school sophomore from New Jersey is challenging Rep. Michele Bachmann to a debate on civics and the U.S. Constitution”

And in other news on this slow news day.......rescue crews dispatched as cat gets stuck up tree in Michele Bachmann’s neighborhood. Town on edge as neighbors watch in horror.

I would take this to be all kids, regardless what side of the political spectrum they claim to fall on.

Exactly. If she were to 'win' the debate, well, her opponent was a high school sophomore. If she were to lose.....well!

Like a fool, I clicked on the link to the article.

There were over 300 comments that followed (I only read a hundred or so) and I’d estimate that 99% were very anti Bachmann. Comments were very vitriolic and nasty about her. The posters were rabidly far left liberal freaks.

Reading the comments, I thought that this must be what Daily Kos and the DU look like everyday. (I’ve never been on either of those two sites)

Amy should do obama, reid, and pelosi
at her circus before she gets to the main
event with Michelle Bachmann. It shouldn't
take long, and it would be like running a few
cartoons before a feature movie.

“Amy should do obama”

If Amy took on the president for his myriad fabrications regarding health reform, she’d clean his clock. Of course his lies were so flagrant, shameless and indefensible, it would be like taking candy from a baby.
