"As a decedent of generations of Iowans, I was born and raised in Waterloo. As a mom of five, a foster parent and a former tax lawyer and now a small business job creator, I know we cant keep spending money that we dont have," GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (Minn.) says in his first advertisement.
"That's why I fought against the wasteful bailout, against the stimulus. I will not vote to increase the debt ceiling."

Let them eat cake...
That’s (one of) my girl(s)!
“HIS first advertisement”?
“I will not vote to increase the debt limit” is not the same promise as “I will vote against raising the debt limit”. One is a promise not to vote, the other is a promise to vote against it.
Unless she writes from beyond the grave, I think you mean descendant, not decedent. I hope the ad doesn’t have “decedent.”
The ad has it right. The transcriber doesn’t.
Now is the best time for the republicans to kick the liberals in the stones and keep doing so until they get it.
Stop spending and repeat.

Michele Bachmann is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Of course she won’t. She won’t even be there. She’ll be out campaigning.
Michele, do the job you are currently being paid for.
I hope she sticks to it. No increase in the debt ceiling. No deal, no way.
For a Congresswomen, that’s an easy answer. But as President, you don’t get a vote in congress. How would Presidential candidate Bachmann govern the country with a 30% budget shortfall? That’s the tough question a presidential candidate needs to answer.
Another Bachmann quote:
“First of all, the money that went to the clinic was actually training money for employees. The clinic did not get the money. And my husband and I did not get the money either. That’s mental health training money that went to employees.
Number two, regarding the farm, the farm is my father-in-law’s farm. It’s not my husband and my farm. It’s my father-in-law’s farm. And my husband and I have never gotten a penny of money from the farm.
Regarding the earmarks, I believe the right place to build projects is in the states and the states have to build roads and bridges. And I don’t apologize for building roads and bridges.”
"It's The Spending, Stupid"
She's having a bigger impact on the campaign trail than she would in Washington speaking out on the issues, especially on the debt ceiling.
Those BDS are incapable of rationality.
Go get ‘em, Michele.
Let’s see what Bonehead, Cantor, McConnell, Alexander, and the rest of the Republican “leadership” do.
Unfortunately, while voting just fine as an individual, she has never displayed any leadership ability during her ten years in legislatures.
And she lies ... per her tax returns ...she gets money from the family trust that owns the farm. She lies about a lot of things. Sort of like a female conservative Al Gore.
Came across this today.....
NEW ORLEANS - After her speech at the Republican Leadership Conference, I asked GOP presidential candidate and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann about her repeated claims that she has “raised” 23 foster children, a comment she reiterated in an interview with CNN following her speech.
Writing in the Daily Beast this week, Michelle Goldberg quoted Kris Harvieux, who worked as a senior social worker in the foster care system in Bachmann’s county, who said at least some of Bachmann’s placements were likely short term.
“Some of them you have for a week. Some of them you have for three years, some you have for six months,” he said. “She makes it sound like she got them at birth and raised them to adulthood, but that’s not true.”
According to Goldberg, the Minnesota Department of Human Services reports that Bachmann’s foster care license allowed her to care for at most three children at any one time; she had the license for 7 1/2 years.
Asked to explain her situation with her foster children, Bachmann said “we took children in as teenagers.”
“Their family was facing a challenge and they weren’t going to be able to be at home with their parents and so we took them in as teenagers,” she continued. “And our job was to see that they graduated from high school and were successfully launched into the world.”
Asked how long they lived with her, she said “it varied.”
I asked Bachmann to explain the parameters of how long the children lived with her - was it as short as one week? As long as three years?
“It varied, it really varied depending on the children,” Bachmann responded. “And we’ve never gotten into specifics about the children because we’ve always wanted to observe their privacy and that of their families. As I’m sure you can appreciate.”
