Where did Michele Bachmannís mama grizzlies go?

It seems like only yesterday that Sarah Palin stepped into a pair of red, Naughty Monkey peep-toe pumps and blew up every assumption about the Republican Party and women. With a briefing book in her hands, a baby on her hip, and a party enamored with her, Palin created the impression in 2008 that the GOP was not only willing, but eager, to elect a women to the highest, or at least second-highest, office in the land.

On the high heels of Palin-mania came a slew of fresh Republican faces like governors Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Susanna Martinez in New Mexico, women winning statewide office for the first time and stopping, or at least slowing, the narrative that only Democratic women will rally around another woman to lift her into office.

Enter Rep. Michele Bachmann onto the 2012 presidential stage. Like Palin, she was a prolific mother, successful fundraiser, unquestioned conservative and telegenic communicator ready to take on Barack Obama and the Republican establishment in a way few....

Michele lost because she has no executive background, not much charisma, bad judgement (i.e., Ed Rollins) and is a back-bencher in the House who has never passed a bill, with no other government experience. Comparing her to Governor Sarah Palin is meant as a slap at Palin.

“telegenic communicator”

Snort. Rep. Bachmann’s campaign showed a complete lack of message control or understanding of viral messaging. She swallowed her foot on numerous occasions, showing a complete dearth of understanding on key presidential issues.

"Comparing her to Governor Sarah Palin is meant as a slap at Palin."

Sarah Palin is the ONLY Conservative woman that is feared by the State-Run-Media, AND all the Progressives....she hits hard and pulls no punches, and knows the family-oriented, working self-sufficient, TAX-PAYING non-dependent folks in this country are fed up with the Liberal/Progressive crap, and that's what scares the HELL out of 'em.

She was attacked continuously for 2 years, with "un-named sources", "anonymous indsiders", etc., with all the B.S. they could come up with to try to knock her down. In the end, SHE decided her family came first....as it should be....but we sure could use her now.

So it's not God, Country, Family...

It's Family, ...then what ? God, then Country ?

No, wait, God, Family, Country.

So if a family member is a traitor, my loyalty should be with family ?

Michele is no Sarah. No one can hold a candle to Palin.

Get a grip....

It's God, Family, Country.

If you have an immmediate family member who's a Traitor, you are in a dis-functional home.

Distant relatives are hard to dis-own.....

Can't blame someone who puts Family first....sure can blame judgemental outsiders who question the motives of a true Patriot and Mother, though.

Some dude here posts over the line, a closed mouth gathers no feet.

Ms Bachman may have liked cervical cancer better than Rick Perry but it sure as heck was poor judgment to shriek and howl about it the way she did. How many laps around the auditorium did she make flying on her broom? Face in Palm moment if ever I saw one. Creepy, shiver, a chance to almost stop cervical cancer and the dimwit shrieks at Gov. Perry for trying to help stop it, darn, the big picture here was lost on her narrow mind.

Sarah Palin is not my first choice for a serious candidate but she is more sensible than Ron Paul, more likable than Newt, and more genuine seeming than Mitt. Hey it sounds like I may be a Palin convert.

Happy New Year to all!!

Ms. Bachmann LOST all respect when she
allowed Rollins to Romney-boat Gov. Palin.

Ms. Bachmann COULD have been a conservative like she spoke at the end
but spent her debate time protecting and pimping for Romney.

Liberal women are the nastiest, most foul-mouthed creatures on the planet. Hillary's Army lives in their own sh!t, and brag about it.

They're Orcs.

She had great command of the major issues. When she was interviewed one on one she came off as a person with broad knowledge of foreign policy, security and the economy. When Michele was given a long interview, she showed that she had depth on the issues.

My granddaughters are NOT going to get gardisil. This is the liberal-pharma complex trying to use our daughters as guinea pigs for their toxins why refusing to show the moral aspect of the cervical cancer story since much of the problem comes from sexual promiscuity. Now, I am not saying that everyone who gets cervical cancer was promiscuous or had sex with someone who was, but it has been known for a long time that this is what causes much of cervical cancer. Of course, the liberal powers-that-be are never going to tell kids “don't be promiscuous”, that wouldn't be politically correct, that would sound too much like Christian morality.

In the seventies, the big scare was herpes. I once saw a doctor from CDC on tv telling the public that the way to deal with herpes was through education. He stressed learning the symptoms and going to the doctor right away. He did not say “don't be promiscuous”. That would be taboo. And what about AIDS, did you ever see any expert on tv admonishing people not to be promiscuous? Of course not, instead they promoted condoms as the cure all. Go ahead, be promiscuous, just use a condom. The liberals control the media, schools and government.

Perry got money from the Gardisil manufacturers and he was all too eager to take his share.
