Rep. Bachmann's response won't be aired by most television networks

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) might not get the national audience she'd hoped for Tuesday evening, when she delivers her response to the State of the Union address.

Only one television network — CNN — plans to air Bachmann's response to President Obama in its entirety, which she'll deliver separately from the official Republican response. She will make her remarks to the Tea Party Express, which will live-stream her speech on its website.

That’s so that they can rip it afterwards without people having seen it with their own eyes.

Shame on Fox

Dunno makes no sense. Bachmann will start after Ryan so it makes no sense. I can’t stomache to watch any of it...up down up down, clap,applause,hold hands across the aisle, teleprompted lies.

I wanted to watch Ryan and Bachmann’s responses but I won’t do CNN. They will probably have another interactive poll with dem progressive plants afterwards.

BTW: On the infamous Matthews Obama BC show and a lot of the MSM news shows; the word PROGRESSIVE’S is used in place of democrat’s. JUST ONCE can somebody stop them and ask them to define progressive vs. liberal?

I’m still pulling for Sarah, but if she doesn’t run, Bachmann will be my immediate next choice.....

It’s so astounding how the GOP establishment has their “anointed ones” and then they shove real conservatives under the train and attempt to run them over.

What’s further astonishing is how CNN, of all networks, will be airing Bachmann and NOT Fox! What is wrong with Fox?

CNN will probably get a bump out of this. By not airing Congresswoman Bachman and the Tea Party the networks are truly showing their bias and lack of business acumen. People are interested in this woman, what she has to say, and the Tea Party in general.

Exposing the common sense of Michelle Bachmann to millions of Americans in Prime Time could irrepairably damage the Democrats, and the minions know it.

Better to attack her later with carefully edited , misleading soundbites, where they can spin it any way they like.

Ryan is giving the GOP response. Bachmann is giving the Tea Party response respectfully after Ryan is finished.

She’s my Congresscritter (and I’m fine with this)

Ryan looks like Aaron Rodgers, so that should help at least get the message across to cheezeheads.

Bachmann's response is the only one I'm interested in tonight and probably the only one I will watch.
The SOTU speech will be Rat crap and the official Republican response will be Rino crap......Ain't interested in hearing more crap at this stage of the game.
