BTW, notice “W.W.’s” spelling: “odour.” ...foreigner. That probably agrees with those who would like to continue anti-American trade policies while robbing US oil companies to pay public school teachers.
She has a lot more experience than the community agitator.
Actually having ‘beltway experience’(go along with the corrupt status quo experience) is part of the problem with politicians.
I would look at her, but her lack of any government executive experience is worrisome. Look what we’re dealing with now with a community organizer/college instructor/state senator. Also applies to Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain.
I believe that the next President will come out of the Republican Primary. I do not believe that the country will re-elect Barack Obama under any circumstances. This is looking more and more like Carter vs Reagan, and represents a historic opportunity for Conservatism.
Having said that, I want the nominee of the Republican Party to be a strong, reliable Conservative.
I am a supporter of Rep. Bachmann for that reason. However, Gov. Palin also has those credentials and would enjoy my strong support, should she become the nominee.
These two candidates are at the top of my list.
defend her experience. tell us about it.
say something about what she did before she was 40, in detail, that would make me think that she should be President, and make me like her.
I don’t need a particular job. I like Paul’s experience, Gingrich’s experience, and Cain’s experience. I just don’t like Bachmann’s resume.
Am I the only one who has actually looked at Bachmann’s resume? It’s not what isn’t there, it’s what is.
Dr. Paul has Duke Med School, Air Force Flight Surgeon, successful medical practice as an ob/gyn, delivered over 4000 babies, married over 50 years, his son is Rand Paul, and a member of the house of reps for a long time. Top stuff. Impressive.
Cain has a ton of business experience plus the more recent radio talk stuff. He was an advisor to Dole/Kemp. Good, serious experience. Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve. Top stuff. Impressive.
Gingrich was the Speaker of the House. That put him where in the line of succession? Who is going to say that Gingrich lacks experience? He has been a household name for 20 years.
Bachmann probably has a worse resume than the typical US Rep.
I say that as someone who likes Bachmann. I’d vote for her in November 2012. But the resume is weak.
When it gets into the real election, when the debates begin, then people will really start paying attention. I think the debates are a great way for the candidate to get past the media fog and really say what he or she thinks. The debates are a great way to educate the people. A candidate who has vision and can speak clearly will sway many people to his/her side. It is not all about public perception until the public actually gets to see the candidate in action during the debates.
She can hire staff and advisory experience. Her morals, values and priorities are in the right place. Right now, she is my pick.
The problem with Obama is not his resume, IMO. His problem is, he’s a commie with no understanding of economics. Not a problem with Bachmann. She’s smart as a whip, and solid on econ and fiscal policy. Nearly as good as Cain, and she seems to have broader appeal.
Whatever. I’ll vote for whoever among Palin/Bachmann/Cain has the best chance of winning the nomination when my state primary rolls around. I don’t see either Romney or Perry as even remotely trustworthy (not even on judicial nominations).
OH...now the media is concerned with “experience”...I get it.
