She can’t be any more inexperienced than 0.
Not according to the recent polls. Voters in IA and NH don’t seem to care that she has less “experience” than Mittens and T-Paw.
It is, but does the author really think that means conservatives will just go to Romney?
He fails to mention Cain...
And if “experience” is going to be the deciding factor then it will be a problem for Palin too. Mittens, T-Paw and Perry all have more “experience” than she does.
She has a private business. That is executive exprience far more relevant than being a career politician. Moreover, the President sets policy. Implementation is at the Department level. The issue is principles, not some bogus notion that “experience” as a politician is the sine qua non of “qualification. In fact, having been a politician for more than a few years with no other significant experience is a presumptive disqualifier.
Did W.W. write a like article concerning the AnointedIdiot’s inexperience? =.=
Doesn't anybody notice the complete mess the cowardly entrenched, "experienced" veteran Republicans like McCain, McConnell, Boehner, et al. have made of their party's cause? Hasn't anybody noticed that it's the youngest, least "experienced" Republicans in the House who are taking the firmest stand?
Character is the most important trait in a president, not what they’ve done for a living.
Carter and Clinton had oodles of executive experience. So did FDR.
Bachmann’s resume is rather thin with no significant accompishments or record of successfully fighting corruption. Add her associations with Rollins and Tokyo Rove is quite unsettling.
Objectively, “Minnie-me” Bachmann lacks the life experiences and successes - America cannot afford to elect another leader seeking On-the-Job-Training.
On one hand she’s not Globalist Elite. There are no mysterious Saudis paying for her education. She’s a “normal person”. And that’s comforting to some. To me actually.
But her record is almost completely devoid of anything at all impressive. 4 and a half years as a US Rep, and 6 years as State Senator. Most US Reps probably have a better resume overall. She’s tea party, at least considered tea party, and for the half of the people who are tea party, she’s currently tops, especially since Palin isn’t running.
She’s saying the right stuff, the tea party stuff, she did a great job in the last debate. She’s pretty. She’s Palin #2 and Palin #1 is not yet running.
She could be ripped to shreds whenever the media wants. The media knows this, and is in no hurry to do this.
I’d vote for her without hesitation in November 2012. But we’d get creamed.
Bachmann has enough of a public record for us to be able to discern which direction she would lead the country, and that is HARD STARBOARD on every single issue of interest to conservatives. She also plays well to independents who are either completely fed up with ballooning federal spending or illegal immigration. That’s really all I need to know.
The only other serious contender who even compares on the issues is Sarah Palin. I guess you could argue Palin has executive experience, but that’s overblown IMO. The entire Alaska electorate is smaller than the population of several counties in Colorado. Being Governor of Alaska is about the same as being Mayor of Colorado Springs in terms of constituency. Bachmann’s congressional district has about the same number of people as Palin’s entire home state.
There’s also the issue of her quitting halfway through her first term. Palin’s my #2 choice behind Bachmann, but playing this issue up to try and pull support from Bachmann is not likely to do her much good. Obama will also not be able to use this as an issue in the general elections. Glass houses/stones.
Wasn’t it the experienced harvard types who gave us these 14.5 trillion dollar deficit? Do we really want more academics to continue to play social theory games with this contry?
Local government socialists view Bachmann as a threat to their rackets.
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.
She can hire staff and advisory experience. Her morals, values and priorities are in the right place. Right now, she is my pick.
