Skip to comments.CNN Notices that Michele Bachmann Repeats Talking Points While Governor Palin Answers Questions
Posted on 08/15/2011 5:48:20 AM PDT by unseen1
Twice in one day. No doubt, some of you will see this as CNN stoking a catfight between Gov. Palin and Rep. Bachmann. Weve already documented that the media will attempt to do this, and the Governor wants nothing to do with it.
But frankly, this strikes me as a pretty straightforward analysis (once again) by CNN of the two oft-compared politicians approaches to interacting with the media. I could be wrong, but it seems like Don Lemon is seeing the real Palin for the first time. Kudos for him that he appears to recognize the authenticity that we so admire about the Governor. Its also not a good sign for Bachmann that she is being labeled as robotic in her interviews. All we can say is Welcome to our world, Michele. And well see you along the trail.

As this campaign unfolds it will become increasingly clear that there really is no comparison between the two woman except for the fact they are women.
Has CNN also noticed that Zero can’t put two words together without a teleprompter?
I’m not too worried about what CNN manages to notice.
So if your Palin doesn’t run or runs and doesn’t win, and Bachmann is the nom, then what? You’ll hold your noes and vote for a TRUE CONSERVATIVE because your Palin didn’t run? You’re doing exactly what CNN wants and your post is exactly why they ran that spot.
one miracle a day please.
Please let’s not be like Ed Rollins.
No need to criticize other candidates.
Bachmann is an experienced politician. She understands how to deal with the MSM assassians better than Palin. Bachmann will not have a Katie Couric moment. Stay on message should be the watchword. The MSM are not our friends.
I don't think it is clear at all which of the two is "more accomplished." I think they're both highly accomplished and would both be qualified to be president. Far more qualified than Obama. I think it's simply a matter of which of them you agree with more. And also the fact that Palin has not (yet?) entered the race.
CNN finally seeing the light?? Put down the crack pipe, you are being played.
CNN (and MSM in general) has one goal in political coverage, and that is to further the chances of their polical wing (the DNC). Anything favorable that they appear to report about the GOP is designed to divide.
I'm going to disagree with you here. In addition to both being Republican women, they're also both strongly identified with the TEA Party and have positioned themselves as the outsiders taking on the establishment.
Of course, there's as much to contrast between them on these points as to compare them, but it's not just as superficial as both of them being women.
Hey, I have said this in emails to Fox...Gov Palin is getting more respect from CNN than she gets from Fox
Will you vote for Gov Palin if she is the nominee and defeats “your” bachmann?
Btw Your “true conservative Bachmann thanked Pres Obama for bailing out the Pork meat industry.
Soon Palin is going to jump into it and destroy all of the other candidates. Palin actually has a very good chance at beating zero. If she doesn’t I’m going for the next best conservative which is Rick Perry.
This is a family fight.
I believe it`s very clear to most that Gov Palin is much more accomplished than Bachmann.
