NY Daily News ^ | 1/26/2011 | Aliyah Shahid

Posted on 01/26/2011 6:09:57 AM PST by rochester_veteran

Insisting the Tea Party is a "force for good" Rep. Michele Bachmann blasted health care reform, called for deep budget cuts and blamed President Obama for failing to find solutions to help the struggling economy.

The response to President Obama's State of the Union address, was on behalf of the tea party movement, and followed the Republican Party's official response on Tuesday night.

Done! She’s way behind but the poll responses are either loved it or hated it. Remember it is the NY Daily News, and these idiots voted for Coumo.

“F” is winning, obviously by robo-dorks who didn’t watch it, never would, and who still consider Barry Sutoro a great orator and intellectual giant

Gave it a “B”, points deducted for poor eye contact

I thought her rebuttal was excellent. I wanted to watch on the Tea Party site but after Obama’s speech all that was on there was some forum with WH people!
I completely missed Paul Ryan! I finally went to Foxnews.com and watched Michelle.
So frustrating!

“Gave it a “B”, points deducted for poor eye contact.”

Not that these polls mean much, but come on get with the program.

Always give Bachmann (or other true conservative an A+.
Always, not matter what comes out of their mouth, give Obama or any other Dem an F-

Which is a backhanded way of saying "The Tea Party isn't a force for good."

Too much teleprompter, no enthusiasm, kinda blah, she could have been more authoritative. She’s OK, but I think Palin would have done a better job if she had to do the response. I give her a “B”, but since its the “NY” Daily news, I say “A” just to get the Libs panties in a knot.

Done! I thought she did great. The “eye contact” thing did not distract from the issues (deficit, unemployment since Obamster took office, repealing ObammyCare, etc.) that she hit spot on.

re: poor eye contact

I loved it. I discerned no problem with eye contact. Of course, I was listening on the radio!

Great response. Better in some ways than the official response.

Daily News is as about far left as one could get.

Not giving them a hit as they are close to being broke.

That said, Congresswoman Bachmann was outstanding last night.

Imagine that even some of the CNN folks had to admit she did a good job and she actually enhanced Ryan’s speech.

“Some GOP aides were reportedly annoyed with Bachmann’s decision, fearing it could appear that the Republicans and the Tea Party were competing with each other. “

Gee, ya think? Who are these “GOP Aides”? Nicole Wallace and other McCainiacs and Romney-bot retreads??

“CNN, the only cable network to air her rebuttal live, was criticized by some who called it irresponsible journalism”

Snaps to CNN for resisting the charge of the RINOs.

I’ve come to the conclusion that those who consider Obama to be a great orator and an intellectual giant have low expectations or know nothing about his background. If they knew the truth about his past and current associations, they would realize what he alll most everything he says has nothing to do with his intentions.

Apparently, there were two cameras - one for the Web feed, one for TV broadcast. This was clearly a production problem and not giving Michelle the proper sight lines.

That is the first thing I noticed. She was looking to the right of where the camera lens was. Found it strange. Watching her eyes they did not seem to indicate she was reading her speech.

The fact that she looked at the wrong camera the whole time was so distracting, I couldn't watch it. It was like watching Obama, which I can't do either.

It's kinda like when people talk to you and they don't look you in the eye, but they look at your forehead. Rather than listening to what they say, you just keep asking yourself, why won't they look me in the eye?

I suspect that practically nobody watched it anyway.

re eye contact, is it just possible that they either did not instruct her properly or just maybe they switched cameras cues purposely. ( I thought there were at least two cameras trained on her). Is it possible that it was done on purpose?

The eye-contact issue was explained this AM.

There were 2 cameras on her. She spoke into the TEA Party camera.

Can someone who knows television work explain this two camera setup? The more I think about it, the more I suspect that this was a stunt. If true, it was both malicious and childish.

Kind of like the camera angle ABC used when Charles Gibson interviewed Sarah Palin.
