Skip to comments.Meghan McCain: Michele Bachmann is "Not a Leader" And Shouldn't Have Responded to the SOTU
Posted on 01/27/2011 4:45:13 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
The Daily Beast columnist Meghan McCain was on 'The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell' (Wed., 8PM on MSNBC), where she and the host responded to GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's response to the State of the Union address. MSNBC did not air the response, but CNN did, which McCain thinks they "should be ashamed of."
Lawrence called Bachmann's statements the "second response to the State of the Union Address," because the designated Republican response had already been given. He agreed with McCain "about how there were these different people who are just using their platforms to their own personal advantage, rather than thinking about what it means for the party."
"I think it's important to note that Michele Bachmann is not a leader and she's not the leader of the Republican Party," McCain said in response. She went on to say Bachmann "is no better than a poor man's Sarah Palin."
She believes CNN should be ashamed of themselves for airing the video of Bachmann, "who couldn't even look into the camera directly," and praised Fox News and MSNBC for not doing so.
While MSNBC may have resisted the urge to run the actual response, they still chose to give it air time in this discussion about its shortcomings, so Bachmann still got her press coverage.
It may not have been positive coverage, but it keeps her name floating around where people might latch onto it and remember it, and isn't that what really matters when you're considering a Presidential run in 2012?
What makes Porkie think that she is in any leadership position to make this comment?
Meghan-—the REAL “balloon head.”
Meghan, just because your daddy is a perennial presidential wannabe doesn’t mean you actually know anything about anything.
What a twit.
Plz, can we all agree not to post anything that Meghan McCain says or does? She’s is SOOOO insignificant. It’s like me posting what my dog sniffs.
I’m guessing she’s daddy’s puppet.
Any why should anyone respect her opinion? Oh yeah, she has biggins. Too bad she can use them for brains.
I feel sorry for Meghan. She cannot get a job or do anything productive.
Has another Cheezburger, Meghan.
At least Obamao’s and Moochelle’s communist indoctrinated girls keep their commie pablum talking points to themselves.
Meanwhile, McCain’s mouthy spawn can’t help doing everything she can to help the opposition tear down the country.
I think it's important to note that the trust fund baby, Meghan McCain, is not a leader and she's not even considered a Republican
“..moo moo mammoo
That's exactly why they have her on MSBHO. She is how the left perceives the right; a bubble-head bleached blonde ditzer.
When Meghan going guest star of Jersey Shore? Maybe she and Snooki can get $h!tfaced at some sleezy dive and get arrested.
So, Mega McCain is a Republican leader who gives her response to a response on that a far right wing network PMSNBC. I’m glad she found a place where she is useful.
Does the same ‘rule’ apply to Carter, Clinton. etc., and all the other Liberal bafoons who perpetually siddle into the limelight whenever they see an opportunity for MORE national attention?
How often and how gratuitously have these two forced attention on themselves only to malign US policy or to bash individual Cnservative leaders...usually at a time and in a way that is NOT constructive and can only be construed as aid and comfort to our enemies?
Porki needs to STFU!!!!
Mom and Dad are loaded. She does not need real work, being an annoying A-hole is her job.
Meghan proves the bromide that opinions are like (well known body part). Everybody has one.
