Michelle Bachmann in the primaries. What say you guys?
Myself(Vanity)

Posted on 04/29/2011 4:57:43 PM PDT by JosephSmithNAW

If things remain as they are in the Republican Primary field, especially if Sarah decides not to run, then Michelle seems to be a good choice for a conservative to vote for.

Nobody is perfect but she seems okay. Hermain Cain isn't too bad either. Both these people are great conservatives, its just a question of how much support they will be able to get.

I say Obama beats her by 15 points. Are we really going to be this stupid? I love what she stands for, but she cannot win the general election.

I don’t vote for strong women, because I’m a Republican. Or at least that’s what the MSM says. LOL.

She has my vote if she steps in.

The GOP establishment is going to be up to its usual tricks. I think they have their bets mainly on Romney, and in case something happens to Mittens (early setbacks and such), they might turn to Pawlenty.

Yes, Bachmann is a great conservative and should make a good candidate. At the moment, she is my choice if Palin decides not to run.

Herman Cain seems to be a really good person, but the reality is he has not even the slightest chance of winning the GOP nomination. Never elected to anything from what I recall, and one primary Senate bit that he lost to Isakson in a landslide.

Pawlenty does seem okay too, but he doesn’t have the fire and energy that Bachmann has.

I agree. If Allen West would change his mind, and run...we'd have a winner.

Why do you think? I mean, I could be missing something and I've heard others suggest she'd lose badly - but I just don't see why Bachmann wouldn't make for a great candidate. She is a strong conservative, has a ton of energy, could fire up the base, is attractive, etc.

I might just be so biased because I like her message, but can you elaborate on why you think Obama would beat her by 15? Anyone in the field you think would be much better?

If the GOP pushes a Rhino like Romney or another McCain, the immediate reaction should be to declare yourself independent. If everyone did this, it would scare the crap out of the idiots in Washington. As for Bachmann, I’d love to see her run with West and see how the libs get around the racist labels. Semper Fi

I don’t know who, but I think to beat Obama it means some people here are going to have to realize it’s going to be someone not as conservative as they want. They then have to ask themselves the fundamental question of whether they want Obama in office another 4 years or do they want someone that can beat him but may not be as pure as they’d like.

I think Mitch Daniels can beat Obama. I think Romney can. A few others.

Palin, no way. Bachmann...no way. Chris Christie....interesting. I’d love to see him jump in.

Huckabee, I just can’t see it. We are such an image conscious country and he doesn’t have a presidential look to him (Daniels probably doesn’t either).

if Sarah decides not to run

First name.

then Michelle seems to be a good choice

First name.

Hermain Cain isn't too bad either

Both names.

What seems to be the reason behind that?

I was impressed with her until I read of a recent TV interview in which she folded so easily when George Steph...it’s all Greek to me whipped out the original certification of live birth fraud document and she ceased arguing the matter. That told me that she’s really not ready for prime time.

Not as good as (in order of preference): West, Palin, Cain, and DeMint.

Better than (in no particular order): Ron Paul, MittCare Romney, Huckster, and any retread (McCain, Gingrich, etc.)

Even with Pawlenty? Dunno enough about Pawlenty

Infinitely better than obama.

I respect your opinion but I have to disagree though. I do not think Romney can beat Obama. The Romney machine is good at convincing people that he can but I don’t see it happening. The appeal of Romney is mainly slick packaging.Once under pressure he will fold. Just like he folded to McCain.

I don’t want anyone running who can’t win. We cannot take a chance that Obama will be re-elected. We need a winner! I like Bachman but don’t know how strong a candidate she would be.

She should jump in. Let the primaries shake out. The more the merrier, and we will see how it goes. Right now, I’m skeptical about her winning. If she makes it
through primary, I will campaign for her. I will campaign for whoever the candidate is, for I realize that this election is our last chance @survival as we know it. This is it folks. In fighting will have to stop once someone gets past primary. My montra has been this, “If they prove to be fools, vote their asses out, and move on”. Stopping this fool in the Presidency is my mission.

Well, that’s exactly the point. She’s a strong conservative. When was the last time a strong conservative won the general election? Think about it.

She has moments of pure deer in the headlights. I would think in the debates she would be destroyed. The media would crush her, even the few that are conservative friendly. She’s from small state, and a fairly liberal one at that...I doubt she could even win her own state, quite frankly.

No doubt Bachmann is admired by a lot of Freepers, but specifically what would Bachamann do to fix our current economic situation? Absent a solid, viable plan, she would not have my support.

-"...but she cannot win the general election."

Sorry, but that is the MOST DEFEATIST ATTITUDE that serves no purpose in how to decide one's vote for a candidate (unless, of course, you don't support Palin to begin with).

If you believe in a person's beliefs and their ability to be a successful President of the United States, then that should be a good-enough reason to support that individual. But, don't go off spouting "she can't win", because that is PURE B.S.

The "general election" is only a mere 2 MONTH SPRINT (SEP - OCT). Plenty of time for ANY, and I mean "ANY", Republican candidate to convince 51% of the country that the SOCIALIST is a bad deal!

Maybe not, but Romney is beating him in polls right now. He’s a smart guy, solid business man, looks the part, scandal free. His biggest two albatrosses are RomneyCare which I think he can get out of by simply saying it was wrong and proposing something else. His other issue is that he’s Mormon. It’s sad to say, but there are people in this country that will not vote for a man that is Mormon. I find that mind blowing, but then there were people that wouldn’t vote for Kennedy because he was Catholic. A lot of bigots in this country, unfortunately.

Exactly my view. That’s why I don’t think Palin or Bachman are remotely plausible. I love Palin to death and I can tell by your screen name that you do also, but I see no way she could ever beat Obama.

My sole belief is to put someone in there that can beat him. I don’t always vote that way, but in 2012 I will. Even if I have to hold my nose to do it.

I realize how passionate you are, but sorry, it’s not going to happen in a country this divided. Not in a million years. If the country wasn’t so evenly split, maybe, but no way in the current space.

Several Freepers are saying Bachmann won’t be able to beat obama.

Wrong.

What they’re missing is that the economy will TANK by October. Prob July actually. And by “TANK,” I mean make these days seem like “the good old days.” Seriously.

When - not if, but when - that happens, a ham sandwich will be able to beat obama...

I think West would suit nicely. No one makes him back down. AND he doesn’t appear to be corrupt.

Yes! If West runs, I will crawl over broken glass and razor blades - rusty ones - to help in the primaries. My first tshirt on Zazzle: Obama’s a Zero, West’s a Hero. With appropriate graphics.

Palin? Broken glass.

Bachmann? Broken glass, but only in the generals. Not the primaries.

If the economy is bad enough and if the media has not convinced Americans the Republican controlled congress is to blame, yes a ham sandwich could beat Obama. Should this happen, do we have a ham sandwich smart enough to put this country back on track???
