Meghan McCain: Michele Bachmann is "Not a Leader" And Shouldn't Have Responded to the SOTU
TV Squad ^ | January 27, 2011 | Jason Hughes

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?

I feel sorry for Meghan. She cannot get a job or do anything productive.

Therefore she will run for the McCain seat to represent Arizona in the Senate when her dad FINALLY retires.

Hmmm, Michelle Bachamann now taking some of the flak away from Sarah Palin. Got to wonder if they have become a tag team.

What your dog sniffs has consequence. As for what Chunkie-butt McCain has to say... not so much.

Hey fatso McCain, you’re just as stupid as your worthless father. STFU and get back to that bag of Fritos.

If it weren’t for daddy no body would even know who Meghan McCain was. I’m really sick of hearing hear idiotic opinions. Michele Bachmann has just as much right to have her voice heard as Meghan does.

I know what you mean. If Michele doesn’t have a right to have her opinion heard. Then why does Meghan McCain think she does?
What a lame brain.

Bachman is not a leader? I thought she was the founder and leader of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus. Was she not addressing the Tea Party Express? Would not CNN have aired a response from the Congressional Black Caucus?

She’s more of a leader than your rino daddy and the rest of the gutless republicans afraid to take on obama and the media.
