I found it interesting, that after about the 20th time of repeating “innocent 11-12 year-old little girls” (in the Tampa CNN-Tea Party debate, CNN post-debate, Fox News post-debate), when asked by Greta VanSusteren if she believed Gov. Perry used an Executive Order for the cervical cancer vaccine to get $6000.00 or because he believed it was a good idea and would help fight the spread of this cancer, Michele Bachmann actually stopped talking for a couple of nanoseconds, paused and said that she couldn’t look into his heart and know that answer.

The answer is obvious to any honest person, that Gov. Perry did it to help fight cancer and hold down future medical costs (not make money, reward a company (Merck contributes $Millions to political groups yearly) - encourage girls to become sexually active or even suggest that they do). The best time to administer the HPV vaccine is when girls are young (they can contract this cancer from their husbands – get oral cancer – thank you Bill Clinton for your part in making America's youth think oral sex isn't sex).

About deaths from vaccines – over 400 people die yearly in the U.S. alone from penicillin allergies. All medicine carries risks -- have you watched an Rx commercial disclaimer lately?

And it was opt out. The governor’s EO allowed easier payment due to insurance restrictions. And it was not opposed by Dr. David Stevens, CEO of the Christian Medical Association.

Why CMA supported Perry's HPV vaccination order

A dumb tactic by Bachmann, IMO.

I’m afraid she lost it for me with that remark. It’s amazing to me that - as stupid as politicians of both sides are on most matters of importance - they are even more vapid when it comes to anything concerning science.

My understanding is that any parent could opt out of having this for their child
under the Perry/Texas law so how can anyone continue to call it a "mandate?"

Bachmann finally scored points on Rick Perry by hitting him on his ties to Merck

Perry also has ties to big oil, big tobacco, big cattle, the tea party, Christians, the Republicans, dog owners, & the industrial cotten complex.

What kind of monster is this man?

About deaths from vaccines ....

I suppose that's the price we pay for having vaccines. We sacrifice a small number of lives so that a large number of people might live. Now back to my Sir James Fraser.

I guessed a while back the hpv issue was being propped by the anti vaccine crowd. Just surprised Bachmann is one of them.

She should go back to tax law and stop hanging out with scientologists.

She’s wandering into the weeds on this one. Hit Perry for the mandate and move on to immigration and other issues. Not the corral to make your stand unless you’re going to approach the issue from the right direction.

Better to hit Perry for the Guardasil mandate, Romney for the RomneyCare mandate, and tie both back to the Obamacare mandate.

That vaccination has done a lot of damage, anybody that says it hasn’t is ignorant of the facts.

Perry himself said it was a mistake. So it was a mistake to force the mandate.
Good enough for me.

>>>”There’s a woman who came up crying to me tonight after the debate. She said her daughter was given that vaccine. She told me her daughter suffered mental retardation as a result of that vaccine.”<<<

Completely irresponsible on Bachmann’s part. HPV caused cervical cancer kills women. If there was a vaccine against all cancer, would Bachmann not support it? This attack makes it sound as if she is against all vaccines.

encourage girls to become sexually active or even suggest that they do

Some educated folks beg to disagree with the idea that this is not, at the least, morally ambiguous. Like learning how to put condoms on bananas. One could try to make a case for recommending it as a safeguard against the still thankfully unlikely possibility of a rape by a rapist carrying HPV as an STD.

Anyhow, Perry bollixed up the ballyhooed opt-out which was supposed to defuse the controversy. Public school, no problem. But he forgot, or didn't care, that a lot of private schools in Texas reference the "mandatory" vaccination list of Texas rather than bothering to spell out what vaccinations they want. And they might not have had time to revise their policy in light of this special case, the first special case of its kind. That's why the Texas legislature was moved to shoot this turkey down.

Many other states are considering legislation with regard to Gardasil. It is simply wrong to suggest that Rick Perry is the only one who has ever thought it would be a good idea.

Kentucky is considering something very close to what Rick Perry wanted.
“Would requires immunization against human papillomavirus for female children and require that parental statements to withhold consent be filed with the immunization certificate. Would also require educational resources to the public and all schools with special information. (In committee 1/29/10)”

[If Perry wanted to make those inoculations more accessible, he could have crafted an opt-in system rather than forcing parents to opt out.]

Except, please correct me if I’m wrong, that wouldn’t have achieved the goal of making insurance companies have to cover the HPV vaccine. It had to be added to the mandatory list, and Perry included a parental opt-out. The goal of this EO was to get insurance companies to cover the expensive vaccine. Too bad Perry fails over and over again to make that point.

Yea, that is really stupid of the government to think they can MAKE people have immunizations!
What’s next, shots for polio, or tetanus, or measles, or hepatitus A, or hepatitus B, or pneumococcal vaccine, or rotavirus vaccine, or influenza, or MMR, or varicella vaccine, or meningococcal vaccine, or human pappilomavirus vaccine? Guess they already do since the above list is from the recommended immunization schedule/S

Your constant spinning for Perry’s flaws is getting annoying.

I wonder how many dumb statements our Founding Fathers would have made if forced to undergo modern campaigns?

Bachmann came off as whiny, petty and bytchy during her rant. And for whatever reason, she NEVER turned and faced Rick Perry. I got the impression she had her fingers crossed.

This rant hurt her more than it helped hurt.

She, along with Cain, might as well drop out of the race.

So when was Bachmann given the vaccine?
