Maybe this kid should ask Obama what year it is, most likely he will get it wrong..since for some reason he thinks its 2008

Understood, but again, I seem to recall a story here about 4-6 months ago about some kid challenging Bachman after her Lexington/Concord snafu, complaining that he/she was being threatened and such. Maybe I’m just old.

By the way, I wonder how See-BS would feel if one of their major network stars, in typical humor, "joking" about this girl being raped in Yankee Stadium?

Nah, they'd never stand for that...

As a young boy in a parochial I was initiated to the debating culture about the third grade. I recall a debate before before a ladies aid group about water and fire being most important. The boys team won with water, one argument being water puts out fire. The girls were not up to making any arguments about fire turning water into steam for engines. However. my story is how I got caught up in my new ability to debate to sometimes be obnoxious. The saving part of my life was when I tried my debating skills on my mother. My mother won practically all the debates even if she had to use a swatter to my rear.

A 16-year-old from New Jersey posts an inane challenge to a congresswoman from another state, and "several" media outlets find it NEWSWORTHY? I challenge my own congresscritters all the time, and nobody ever thinks that's newsworthy.

Get used to it. This, I bet, is going to be part of the strategy for Odumass's campaign. Bring out the brainwashed/braindead kids and dare the GOP to attack THEM.

As one of a handful of women in Congress, you hold a distinct privilege and responsibility to better represent your gender nationally. The statements you make help to serve an injustice to not only the position of Congresswoman, but women everywhere."

This cheeky little twit would do well to aim a bit lower and learn a little humility first.

To begin with, gender refers to words, not to people; 'sex' is the proper word in that context.
In the fog of identity politics, perhaps you should accept the offer of any of thousands of conservative young men your age, who can teach you both about history and government, with a dollop of hubris.

As for little Zack, he can get his two minutes of fame through someone else.

Either way, I don’t think Michele Bachmann (who I really like) is ready for prime time.

More ready by far than the Obozo. And with more class.

Thing is progressives don’t care about the Constitution and there is a large segment of the populace who have no clue how this nation is designed to work.

That was by design from the left. They knew they could destroy America if they gained control of our education system. Raise the son of the capitalist to long for socialism and in time the capitalist will pay for the socialists to run America.

When asked what type of government they are giving the people by an old woman, Jefferson told her,
"A Republic my dear. If you can keep it."

Well welcome to our forefathers nightmare, because we failed his challenge miserably.

***********************************************

Well said. When we went from a capitalist education industry to a socialist system it was just a matter of time before the republic was lost.

We need to do away with the socialist schooling system and return to a capitalist system.

Government schools have no place in a free society.

Ms. Myers’s thinks she is showing her intelligence and knowledge, but she is showing her ignorance. Every politician misspeaks. No sane adult holds Mr. Obama’s many, many stupid mistakes ( 57 state, not properly saluting the flag, giving a DVD playable only in the US and Japan to the Queen of England.....) over all African American politicians. The media has had a template for 55 years, that Republicans are stupid. This can probably go back to Lionel Trilling’s statement in the 1950s that conservatism is an irrational impulse not a coherent ideology. Eisenhower, a former 5 star general and president of Columbia University, was portrayed as a man who golfed rather than dealing with the troubles of the country. Little Ms. Myers should also be reminded that Thatcher was savaged by the British Press, called a reactionary fool and warmonger. She has only gained a modicum of respect with her age-related silence on important issues and as Labour, the Liberal Democrats, and the Wet and Red Tories destroy her legacy. It is no different than how the media suddenly find good qualities in Goldwater and Reagan, as they use these real, imagines, or inflated differences to attack current conservatives.
