President Babe
The Moral Liberal ^ | June 29, 2011 | Alan Caruba

Posted on 06/29/2011 3:01:00 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

There’s a lot I don’t know about Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Representative who just announced that she wants to be the next President of the United States of America, but I do know she is great eye candy and, given the present occupier of the office, I would much rather look at her in the Oval Office than him.

She is—and I say this with all due respect—a babe.

Mitt Romney, with whom she is currently a “front runner” in the nomination sweepstakes, looks classically presidential. He is a handsome fellow with a winning smile. My guess, though, is that if Texas Governor Rick Perry gets in the GOP race, all bets are off or, more accurately, all bets will be on him. Gov. Perry has a certain John Wayne cragginess about him and a track record of success in the Lone Star State.

I would like to say that the presidency is not a beauty contest, but to some degree it is..........

[BIG snip]

Rep. Bachmann is a Tea Party conservative and that has been gaining traction. I would vote for her just because she wants to repeal Obamacare....

Given the savage treatment accorded Gov. Palin, we shall soon know how much Rep. Bachmann scares the Left by how quickly they begin to photoshop her head on photos of porn star bodies. Their dementia knows no bounds.

....Let us keep our eye on the prize which in this case is to send Barack Hussein Obama packing; back to his beloved Chicago where he can pig out on fast food with Rahm Emanuel, Bill Ayers, and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

If Michele, or her staff, does not learn how to do a Google Search before she makes the kind of gaffe she made in Iowa this week, she will not be considered a “babe” but a “bimbo”. To confuse the actor, John Wayne, with the homosexual, mass-murderer, John Wayne Gacy (who was the one born in Waterloo; not the actor) has already done irreparable damage to her candidacy. We can talk about all the gaffes Obama and Biden have made, but, remember; Republicans are held to a higher standard and have to really be on top of our game.

Come on Michele: Do a friggin’ Google Search.

She is a nice looking woman, but she is no Babe.
I guess that is a matter of opinion, but it’s mine.

I don’t think she is ready for the Presidency, but she is more ready than the anti-American Hustler we have in the WH now.

Now we see all the Bachmann haters coming out of the woodwork. It was a mistake but really, if that's what the left is going to trash her with they're desperate.

This is just a small non-story designed to get everyone's attention away from the current occupant's pathetic handling of the economy. Always remember:Hussein CAN'T run on his record, and he doesn't want to get his hands dirty so expect many more distractions like this as the MSM does the dirty work for him.

I don't believe we will find perfect, certainly not until Sarah announces her run, but Bachmann is on my "good enough" list with Cain and DeMint (Romney is not on that list).

As for the tempest over Waterloo trivia: John Wayne: American By Randy Roberts, James Stuart Olson Clyde [John Wayne's father] was twenty and Molly [John Wayne's mother] was nineteen when they met. She fell in love with him because he was kind, handsome and well educated. He would, she thought, be easy to live with and a good provider. They had not dated long and did not know each other very well, but Clyde was about to take a job at a pharmacy in Waterloo, Iowa, and they decided to get married. Rather than bother with a church wedding, they eloped, traveling to Knoxville, in Marion County, where Justice of the Peace I.H. Garrison married them on September 29, 1905. They made their first home in Waterloo . . .

That's close enough to accurate for me.

I am not a Bachmann hater. From the list of candidates we have to choose from now; I’d vote for her today. If Sarah gets in, she’s my choice. Same for Perry; albeit, reluctantly. But, dear God in heaven; we don’t need to give the left-wing media anymore fodder to use against us.

Bachmann was on several short lists UNTIL she

No public apology? No more support.

BTW, this is NOT a “small, non-story”. It’s still all over the cable news networks this morning. And I agree with you, it is a tool for the media to use to divert attention from the incompetent, President Clueless in the White House. Why give them more material?

Why did Bachmann agree to the Stephanopoulous interview? She has questionable judgement for that. Conservative candidates in 2012 DO NOT NEED THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS TO ATTRACT VOTERS - the people limited to ABC CBS NBC for their news are NOT going to vote conservative.

I say conservative candidates need to boycott these outlets and not look back.

Bachmann was in my top four (well behind Palin but a candidate I could support and volunteer in her campaign). She's still there, although I'll admit that I'm more than a bit curious what happened behind the scenes both in her campaign and between her and Palin after Rollins again demonstrated his flaws. So long as Sarah supports her or at least doesn't come out against Michele Bachmann, I'm not going to hold that against Bachmann to the extent of risking the 2012 election.

More than anything else in the world, what matters for the next two years is not just removing the anti-American communist from our White House but replacing that druggie with someone who will dismantle ObamaCare and the rest of the Chicago thug's legacy. Bachmann is one of the few who would do exactly that, and I'm not going to reject her over whether an apology was given in public, in private, or not at all. To do so would play into Romney's hands, and that would spell the end of America.

I offer this for your consideration. This was an interview bachmann gave only 2 years ago. I think it is telling of exactly who and what she is.

____________________________________________________________

http://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/michele-bachmann-i-stand-for-the-same-values-that-my-parents-stood-for-when-we-were-carter-democrats/

From The Hill:

Bachmann was a Jimmy Carter Democrat

Speaking to the St. Cloud Times about her growing role on the national stage, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) references her past as a diehard Carter-Mondale supporter:

Q: You’ve been described as Democrats’ Public Enemy No. 1. How do you feel about being a target?

A: In being forceful and fighting for the positions that I’m standing for, I obviously must pose a threat for liberals advancing their agenda. I say that because I grew up a Democrat in a Democrat family. My husband and I both worked on Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign. The first time I ever came to Washington was to dance at Walter Mondale’s inaugural ball. It was a thrill for my husband and me, and we were both happy to work on behalf of Walter Mondale and Jimmy Carter. We really believed in them when we were in college. So in some ways I don’t understand why the Democratic Party would be opposed to me, because I stand for the same values that my parents stood for when we were Democrats”.

____________________________________________________________

What were those democrat “values” when bachmann was a democrat and he parents were democrats and she was working for jimmy carter? Here you go... a snippet of the Values lain down in the 1980 democrat platform.

____________________________________________________________

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=29607#axzz1QX0p0wCi

Here is Chapter ONE:

“Chapter I: The Economy A Commitment to Economic Fairness

The Democratic Party will take no action whose effect will be a significant increase in unemployment—no fiscal action, no monetary action, no budgetary action—if it is the assessment of either the Council of Economic Advisers or the Congressional Budget Office that such action will cause significantly greater unemployment.

In all of our economic programs, the one overriding principle must be fairness. All Americans must bear a fair share of our economic burdens and reap a fair share of our economic benefits.

High interest rates impose an unfair burden—on farmers, small businesses, and younger families buying homes. Recession imposes an unfair burden on those least able to bear it. Democratic economic policy must assure fairness for workers, the elderly, women, the poor, minorities and the majority who are middle class.”

I will include a snippet from Chapter Two... but if you stand for the values espoused in Chapter One... then one stands for the marxist policies of wealth redistribution.

“Chapter Two

Health

snip

To meet the goals of a program that will control costs and provide health coverage to every American, the Democratic Party pledges to seek a national health insurance program with the following features:

—Universal coverage, without regard to place of employment, sex, age, marital status, or any other factor;

—Comprehensive medical benefits, including preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, health maintenance and rehabilitation services, and complete coverage of the costs of catastrophic illness or injury;

—Aggressive cost containment provisions along with provisions to strengthen competitive forces in the market place;

—Enhancement of the quality of care;

—An end to the widespread use of exclusions that disadvantage women and that charge proportionately higher premiums to women;

—Reform of the health care system, including encouragement of health maintenance organizations and other alternative delivery systems;

—Building on the private health care delivery sector and preservation of the physician-patient relationship; —

Provision for maximum individual choice of physician, other provider, and insurer;

—Maintenance of the private insurance industry with appropriate public regulation;”

snip

“In the 1980s we must move beyond these existing health care initiatives and tackle other problems as well. Long-Term Care—

We must develop a new policy on long-term care for our elderly and disabled populations that controls the cost explosion and at the same time provides more humane care.

We must establish alternatives to the present provisions for long-term care, including adequate support systems and physical and occupational therapy in the home arid the community, to make it unnecessary to institutionalize people who could lead productive lives at home.

We must support legislation to expand home health care services under Medicare and other health programs. Visits from doctors, nurses and other health personnel are a cost-effective and necessary program for the elderly who often cannot travel to medical facilities. Without home health services, many elderly citizens would be forced to give up their homes and shift their lives to institutions. Multilingual Needs—

We must support the utilization of bilingual interpreters in English-Spanish and other appropriate languages at federal and state-supported health care facilities. In addition, we support broader, more comprehensive health care for migrants.

These programs must increase the presence of men and minorities in nursing, and must be targeted toward women and minorities in other health professions. Minority and Women Health Care Professionals—

We recognize the need for a significant increase in the number of minority and women health care professionals. We are committed to placing greater emphasis on enrollment and retention of minorities and women in medical schools and related health education professional programs. We are also committed to placing a greater emphasis on medical research and services to meet the needs of minorities, women and children. Reproductive Rights—

We fully recognize the religious and ethical concerns which many Americans have about abortion. We also recognize the belief of many Americans that a woman has a right to choose whether and when to have a child. The Democratic Party supports the 1973 Supreme Court decision on abortion rights as the law of the land and opposes any constitutional amendment to restrict or overturn that decision. Furthermore, we pledge to support the right to be free of environmental and worksite hazards to reproductive health of women and men. We further pledge to work for programs to improve the health and safety of pregnancy and childbirth, including adequate prenatal care, family planning, counseling, and services with special care to the needs of the poor, the isolated, the rural, and the young. Financially Distressed Public Hospitals—

Frequently, the only sources of medical care for much of the inner city population is the public general hospital. The ever-increasing costs of providing high quality hospital services and the lack of insurance coverage for many of the patients served have jeopardized the financial stability of these institutions. Immediate support is required for financially distressed public hospitals that provide a major community service in urban and rural areas. In underserved areas where public hospitals have already been closed because of financial difficulty, we must explore methods for returning the needed hospitals to active service. We must develop financial stability for these hospitals. Our approach should stress system reforms to assure that more primary medical care is provided in free-standing community centers, while the hospital is used for referral services and hospitalization. Medicaid Reimbursement—

The Democratic Party supports programs to make the Medicaid reimbursement formulae more equitable. Unnecessary Prescriptions—”

We need to remember that if the standard is 100% gaffe-free, no one will ever qualify--unless they are the slickest of liars. Is that what we really want in a President?

Unlike their predecessors, every move and utterance is recorded and able to be either highlighted or buried by the media.

Even worse is the ease with which myth is turned into truth by the media's repeating of lies over and over until they are accepted. If you asked 100 people who said "I can see Russia from my house" probably 95% would say it was Sarah Palin.

In a similar fashion, important things happen and if no one ever hears about it, it's like it never occurred. Yesterday, WI Freshman Senator Ron Johnson ripped Congress a new one over not having produced a budget for the past two years, (as is their Constitutional duty btw). He also indicated he will be withholding his consent for future Senatorial proceedings until this issue is addressed.

This is pretty big stuff - how many people even had a clue it happened?

Who is ever ready for the Presidency?

I think that Ronald Reagan was. He had spent the previous 25 years thinking about policy issues, writing and delivering a series of radio addresses that discussed national problems and offered possible solutions to them. He was governor of the largest state in the union for two terms, faced down obnoxious students and grasping unions, and left the state in better financial shape than he had found it. By the time Reagan became President, he has been tested and was ready to assume its mantle.

Agreed. And to put a finer point on it, NO rinos. No more compromise happy Bush-Dole-Ford non-conservative moderate republicans.

No more posers(!) who put on the mantle of Constitutional conservatism to give a stump speech and take it off when the cameras and microphones are turned off.

Even an obama, a McLame or a Lindsey Graham can do that and we have $14 trillion reasons and counting why that NEVER works!

The campaign slogan for 2012 is "Last chance to get it right, America!"

John Wayne was born in Iowa, she was just got the wrong town. If there was not also a Gacy from Waterloo (and we know that is not who she had in mind), then this would of been a very minor gaff that would have gone unitized.

This is totally a media manufactured gaff.

Michele Bachmann kind of reminds me of a fondly-remembered old girlfriend of mine.

Anyway.

How are Romney’s looks “classically presidential”? He looks like a president only if Hollywood is doing the casting. There have been a few presidents who were handsome. There have been more that have been distinguished-looking. There have been some that were goofy-looking. Most have been ordinary-looking.
