Until the Rollins incident I had never said an unkind word about Bachmann. Even though I thought she'd be a poor presidential candidate (I still think that for multiple reasons) I respected her as a congresscritter, her votes were good, and she spoke well for conservatism.

I had decided the rumors months earlier about her aides spreading smears and nasty comments about Palin were unfounded, but I am now seeing those come up in more and more places, including more recent ones such as this.

I know enough about the good perfessor's bonafides to tell you he would not have printed this if he had not looked hard and seen this was true. He's got a sound critical mind and simply does not print things that he makes up, or hopes are true.

I have no problem with anyone but Bachmann, but have to include Romney along with her. My reasons are multiple, not just the nasty tone that is coming from her campaign workers. And yes, I now believe she is complicit with this stuff.

Gov. Palin is around *somewhere*, I believe, Harley! She is still driving the media, Democrats and her primary competitors insane. As she said, more candidates will be “coming and going” as the long political season progresses. I have no idea who she might be speaking about among the “coming”. Any guesses? LOL Bob

Jacobson is a hard core conservative

Funny - "hard core conservatives" that I know weren't Giuliani supporters like the good Prof

I can respect that reasoning, and if the assertions are true then I would agree with YOUR conclusion because you have included Romney as a reject.

My problem is this: Show the source. Prove the facts asserted.

Please note that I am not saying he is wrong or the assertions untrue, but an accusation of a consistent pattern of malicious behavior needs to be proven or withdrawn.

I find it very interesting that none of the candidates laid a glove on Milt the other night. It’s almost as if there were others whose spirits dominated their attention in absentia. Bob

I have tons of experience in this world and you actually came across as negative. America isn’t playing that game anymore.

No, I did not mention Jew because it is not relevant.

Really? Despite the fact that well over 70% of Jews voted for Obama? American Jews are overwhelming leftists and, as a group, reliably vote democrat and contribute financially even more. Thus your above statement is not credible, IMHO. Statistically speaking, if you are gonna talk about Cornell lawyers as a crowd to be ideologically suspicious of, you might as well admit my suggestion. I'm just helpin ya out, brother.

No, you are attempting a sly slander, but you are not very competent at it. As I said, I did not know Jacobson, but your link showed him to be a clinic law professor at Cornell. That and his absurd logic were all I had before me.

Do not call me “brother”. My mother had two legs, not four.

Is there anyone out there stupid enough to believe that a Cornell professor will ever say anything positive about Michelle Bachmann?

Liberals are using Sarah Palin as a weapon to attack other conservatives using unnamed (probably made up) people to say some conservative has been attacking Sarah.

If Sarah Palin herself comes out and publicly states someone has been unfairly attacking her I will take it seriously. Sarah has publicly stated Katie Couric, McCain staffers and many others have unfairly attacked her. Sarah is not shy about defending herself.

But spare me these clumsy and dishonest attacks by people who hate conservatives. I am tired of their lies.

“The Rollins thing has been done ad nauseum. Nobody cares”

I care and a good many others care.

There was a time when I would have voted for Bachmann, had Palin decided not to run, but unless she get’s the nomination she will never see my vote.

Bachmann should have never hired Rollins in the first place, not firing him sunk her ship with me.

The marriage of Bachmann-Rollins has caused me to no longer care about her canned bumper sticker speeches. Frankly, I don’t trust her anymore.

If it comes down to Bachmann or someone else in the primary, I’ll vote for the someone else.... someone that can beat Obama.

Palin is clearly running, she will announce that in September and I plan to voter for Palin. BUT, if I am wrong on that, I will not vote for the Bachmann-Rollins ticket.

Yes, I believe that Bachmann is a conservative and if she were to make it to the nomination, I’ll vote for her, because there would be no other choice but to do so. AND yes, Bachmann has pissed me off.

In my post #63, I may very well had made it clear that I belong to the “anybody but Bachmann” crowd..... I don’t.

If in the primary it was between her and a candidate with the brain of a frog/RINO, of course she would have my vote, reluctant that it may be.... but I still won’t like her.

IIRC Glenn Reynolds is pro-choice; other than that, libertarian, but kind of leans conservative socially.

Small government though as befits a libertarian.

Have lurked at both Instapundit and Legal Insurrection for a couple of years now; both are pretty much straight shooters, but I agree that Jacobson is more conservative than Reynolds.

Reynolds' wife (Dr. Helen) is attractive if one likes brunettes. (I prefer redheads, though, which must be why I married a blonde.)

Cheers!

“She looked like she had been slapped across the face with a wet rag.”

She always looks like that to me.

The legendary Mrs. Whiskers was watching Hannity interview the candidates after the debate, paying particular attention to Bachmann.

Her take is that what is wrong with Bachmann is that she has had botox injected right where one's smile dimples would be, causing her face to be a little stiff while talking, and keeping her mouth from smiling when her eyes do.

It makes her look funny [as in, peculiar], quoth Mrs. Whisk.

Cheers!

We have to support our favorite in the primary but we have to vote for whoever is opposing Obama in November.

I am certainly not an expert on Botox but I have a couple of friends who are. What I have read about it is that it is used on the forehead and at the outer corners of the eyes only. If used lower on the cheeks or around the mouth that it will make the face droop like from a stroke.

Collagen (sp?) is injected around the mouth to fill up creases like cigarette smoking leaves. Maybe that is what she did to the sides of her mouth to fill up creases or as I prefer to call them, laugh lines.

Anyone is welcome to come forward and correct me if I am wrong.

I’m a big fan of Palin and was one of the first when she was announced as VP. But I’m certainly becoming disheartened with her dragging this out.

There are a handful of people who are obsessed with Rollins but I really think it has very little to do with concern for Palin or Bachmann.

I agree completely. To many of them have Rollins on the brain and/or suffer BDS.

Why don't we all crush these candidates and get behind John McCain again? /s

Don't you just love the vetting process in the run-up to next years primaries?! I sure do. I learn much more this way. But hang in there, the ride will get much more bumpy by next year. It's where the chaff gets separated from the wheat as well as it should.

Please, what nonsense. Sarah needs to jump in or stop this day to day “will she , won’t she” nonsense. It’s getting annoying and distracting.

It's akin to milking it for everything its worth IMHO.

You're completely wrong about that.

I'm glad you put the sarcasm tag on that one!

The answer to your question, though, is that if McCain (aka Obama Lite) had won he would have done a lot of the things that Obama did and would have expected the Republican Party to back him on it. The sad part of that is that Boehner and McConnell would have.

That's also why the media wants us to nominate another Obama Lite.....Mitt Romney. If there was ever a time that a solid conservative can win the presidency, it's now. If there's essentially no difference between the Republican candidate and the Democrat incumbent, we'll have a hard time giving the voting public a reason to vote for us.
