Skip to comments.Bachmann for president?
Posted on 08/08/2010 3:50:32 PM PDT by pissant
Democratic challenger Taryl Clarks latest attempt to cast conservative icon Michele Bachmann as out of touch with Minnesota voters comes in a fundraising e-mail seizing on speculation that Bachmann has her eye on the White House:
Bachmann said she would run for president if she felt called to it, and said in another interview that it's not what she's doing "right now" - leaving the door wide open. She remarked recently to FOX News that her supporters want her to run for president. And Bachmann's multiple trips to Iowa prompted Politico to report:
"Bachmann has been receiving a little attention in conservative circles as a potential presidential candidate in 2012. And like so many other Republicans seeking a national profile, an early trip to Iowa, with its first-in-the-nation caucus, provides an opportunity to test-drive her presidential appeal."

This won’t be popular to say but I am pretty sure Palin won’t be the answer.
I would vote for Bachmann.
Like to see her as VP first, but if we are going to get a woman prez, I’d rather it not be the feminist.
Always thought Bachmann was the better commuicator of the two.
The sixth district voters in Minnesota are too politically savvy to fall for that bullshit.
Michele will be our next representative in Congress and to take it further politically is up to Michele, not a liberal hack like Taryl.
I have and will again via absentee.
She is a shining light of hope in the DFL directed state of Minnesota.
Politico - nothing but the best for you, Pissant.
She would get my vote, too.
The leadership of the GOP is basically Bachman-Palin Overdrive...the GOP men are spineless.
And I’m another vote for Bachman.
If she promises to send the loon to the guillotine, I volunteer to play democrat and get a lot of dead people to vote for her too.
She would have my vote too. She always looks and conducts herself in a professional manner. Absolutely presidential material in my book!
Bachmann would be a great candidate....but the Liberal Free Trader Globalist RINOs in the GOP would be trying to marginalize her from day one.
She would win the Presidency if she could over come the Liberal Globalist RINOs
I made a similar statement and got blasted all to hell on another thread. I love Sarah, but I just think she's better suited for a different role than POTUS. Bachmann is another story...I think she has what it takes and would make a great Pres or VP.
Pissant must get his daily feeds of anti-palin anything...HA!
Can’t help to notice that Bachmann and Palin are close, best friends....how can a true conservatives rub up against the one you despise so much? /s
Bachmann's thought process is more analytical and thus she connects the dots in making her points very well.
Absolutely. Palin skips around too much.
President Bachmann, sounds dynamic
We need an executive in the WH.
Bachmann is perfect where she is. She's a fierce debater, good on policy, is ethical, and can push a conservative agenda through Congress better than if she was President. If the GOP wins back the House, she should be Speaker or House Majority Leader.
This is Politico trying to stir up the pot and create a rift between Palin and Bachmann.
Bachman and Ryan would dovetail the ticket very well. I’d flip it around though since I’m a huge Paul Ryan fan because hHe presents his conservative, logical viewpoint on a topic, presents facts, then draws a logical conclusion supporting his argument. Few politicians do this. Most just say, Bush’s fault, four more years, no more ______, and the same old ditzy, nonsensical, meaningless, stupid mantra.
Ken C in VA is awesome.
Oh for God’s sake. The woman is an attorney and has a terrific resume.
Other way around. I’ve had this tagline for months!!
I’d vote for Michele if Sarah decides to sit it out, and vice versa.
Bachmann/Palin Overdrive 2012
How about a Bachmann/Brewer ticket? Palin could be oh Sec of State..
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
What a novelty it would be to have two smart, qualified, pro-American candidates on the ticket. And both on the conservative side as prez and veep.
I second everything you posted. I would add that she can think on her feet very, very well and seems to be prepared for the “gotcha” question. Plus, she held her composure against that moldy old gargoyle Arlen Specter, who was incredibly rude to her. She didn’t let him get to her, which was his intent.
Add me as a vote for Bachmann.
That's the problem.
Strong, smart, poised, articulate, patriotic; and oh, she’s also good looking. Not much to dislike about Bachmann.
She is amazing. Probably the most conservative person out there at this time. I really doubt she is running for pres in 2012 anyway.
Brewer supported tax increases. And Palin...well, she can go to hell aka one of McCain’s many houses in Arizona.
Bachmann and Ryan are both rising stars, but if the 08 election proved anything, it was that you don’t elect people to the Presidency who don’t have executive experience. It was no coincidence that only twice during the 20th century, did the country see fit to elect a Senator directly to the Presidency. (Harding and Kennedy) Americans, it seems as a rule, elected Vice Presidents, Governors or Generals, and they did so for a reason; LEADERSHIP! The Presdiency is not an entry level position as we’re now finding out the hard way.
I think Americans will be very hesitant to elect a member of either House of Congress to the Presidency next time around. IMO, that’s why Gov. Palin will be the favorite, followed by more big gov’t types like Pawlenty and Romney. Gov. Jindal’s the sleeper (if they ever work out the “Natural Born Citizen” issue) and boy would I pay money to see Gov. Jindal debate Pres. Obama on Health Care.
I like Jindal/Ryan, myself. Those are two candidates, they CANNOT label as lacking intelligence.
I’d love to see her run in 2012. She’s amazing. How about a Bachman/Christie ticket? WHOO HOO! I feel a tingle going up my thigh.
Well, thats your opinion.
Sorry, Palin's walking out on the governorship will be her undoing no matter how anyone tries to defend it. It will be used against her and rightly so, I think.
I’d love to see a Jindal/Bachmann ticket, but not the other way around. I’d rather not see a woman as president, as long as there is a man to fill the bill. But if the only male choice is Romney, I’d vote for Bachmann or Palin in a nanosecond.
This article is simply designed to get conservatives into a pissing match about which woman is better, that's all. Just the usual liberal media pulling an issue out of its ass and then saying it's a "Controversy that may doom the GOP ticket."
Nice try repeating the leftist meme. Fail.
I beg your pardon. You're not paying attention. Already on this thread Ryan has been mentioned and they come any bolder than my congressman, Steve King.
As a matter of fact, Bachman has touted King for president.
Bachman for President and the left would go into convulsions if Sarah was her Chief of Staff!
Is Michelle a tax attorney? I know she is bright and a real conservative plsu she has a lot of guts.
