URBANDALE, IA - Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann Thursday announced that Herman Cain political operative Steven Hensler has joined Team Bachmann as Director of Voter Identification and Field Operations. Hensler will help the Bachmann campaign with polling, surveying, and volunteer coordination.

“Michele demonstrates, more than any other candidate in the race, the conservative principles Iowans are looking for in a president,” said Hensler. “We are excited about the momentum we are receiving for the caucuses and I couldn’t be more honored to join such an organized and driven team.”

She has had a real interesting week.

Super Pac to Romney.
Kent Sorenson goes to RP,
Fires Wes Enos for defending the move of Kent and debunking claims he left for money.
Claims in an interview that hundreds of thousands of another candidates voters are flocking to her.

Good luck Steven with that new very short gig.

I have mixed feelings about Bachmann. Somehow, I think she would stick to her guns and not waiver. I can see her being the Margaret Thatcher of America, yet, at the same time, she doesnt’ inspire much.

There were things about Bachmann that I could have gotten behind. BUT..she whines. I heard her yesterday on FOX and she absolutely sounded pitiful. I hate that.

The Naziesque efficiency, ruthlessness, and swiftness with which Democrat Politicians put a stop to Herman Cain's threat to their establishment should strike fear into the heart of every American.

And they used the oldest trick in their thick book of racist ploys: accusations of sexual improprieties of a Black man toward a White woman.

It was every bit as much Rove, and the RINO establishment as democrats.

The GGP has become a country club.

They have their fenced party membership, and don’t care whether they defeat democrats or not. This allows them to sit back, and when any Republican not in their club comes along - to attack ruthlessly (far more than they do at any democrat) and force them out.

Since they don’t care whether the GOP actually takes power, they are content to support only their special club, and then gang up with striking ferocity on anyone not in the club.

Result: Democrats win, any potentially disruptive Republicans are eliminated from messing up their club, and America continues the downward spiral.

Write in Sarah Palin. It may be the most important vote you ever cast.

Since you, too, noticed, did you note the way they brought forth unfounded and unverifiable allegations to build a 'base' of stories (repeated ad nauseum--to the point few actually knew how many women making allegations there were) Then they brought forth a slightly more credible allegation (but not much, frankly, even though Gloria Allred was supposed to give it credibility).

Had they not presented Herman Cain repeatedly throughout news cycle after news cycle as a person who had a 'history', and when floored by the allegations, presented that as 'evidence' of 'guilt' (even though the alleged offenses were "not sexual in nature"), it might not have flown.

Then they trotted out Buy-a-lick in a pushup bra and treated her like one of the 12 even though she wasn't credible, either (but what self-respecting Mandingo or 'flyover country' knuckle-dragger could resist those boobies, eh?--not) and firmed up the flimsy foundation.

The they trotted out one more, no one knew about and directly attacked his marriage.

Crap, Cain couldn't speak to substantiative issues, and it amounted to a denial of service style bombardment of his candidacy, not to mention an attack on his family as well.

And to think, there were suckers here who not only fell for that ploy, but helped push it.

The reality is that Sarah is not running.

It’s embarassingly mistaken to think:

No choice of Sarah = I must vote for a statist Republican

On the contrary, Sarah’s “smalltown” principles would appear to contradict voting for big statist / cronyist Republicans, and cry out for a vote for a “smalltown”, pro-Christian, pro-small business candidate - no matter their color or gender or any other personal characteristic.

After all, if it’s a best-dressed, most slick personal presentation, Romney would come in second only to perhaps Sam Malone.

But I would not assume the 1st and 2nd would be protected very energetically during a hypothetical Romney administration; in fact, I’d assume those rights would be trade away a bit by it, continuing the pattern of all administrations since WWII. Mainstream Republicans don’t want to be seen as “extreme”, so they trade away our God-given rights that are not theirs to trade away.

Michele Bachmann’s voting record in Congress is here:

No media outlet is nice to Michele. Fox, at 10:15 Eastern time this morning had some dufus on who was interviewing a campaign spokesman (woman) for Michele’s campaign.

The jerk was excrutiatingly obvious in his negativity about the Bachmann campaign. That kind of reporting is disgusting. I am getting very sick and tired of Fox and their mainstreamism. Only occasionally is there a glimmer of support for truth nowadays. If one wants to hear a pro-homo, pro-islam, very pc channel there are many other options besides Fox. Case in point, the sovereign debt bubble is constantly whitewashed on ALL networks.

Fox hates Bachmann. All other media hates Bachmann.

Look at her record. All conservative.

Don’t trust my words, check it out for yourself. Remember when conservatives were checking out everything for themselves and studying rather than taking the media’s word for truth ? It was a fad a couple of years ago. Now we all take our cues from fantasies and longing for glories of the past rather than conservative principles. IMHO, if Reagan heard all the mindless appeals to his legacy, his first reaction would be that future generations should not, in their earnest desire to learn from the past, forget to think for themselves.

I don’t care if Michele sounds bad, looks bad or if she smells bad.

I did my stinkin’ homework.

I looked over a lot of her voting record.

ON EVERY SINGLE VOTE that I looked at - I (the wacky ultra conservative) agreed with her vote.

That’s my basis for supporting her - her voting record matches my principles better than any other candidate.

For example, I support government moving towards getting completely out of the medical field in a structured, methodical way over the coming decades. It obviously can’t happen overnight. But in the long term, costs will go down in a true free-market system that has a little thing called true competition. But I am highly suspect of any new or replacement government-sponsored programs since they inevitably grow into a dysfunctional financial disaster. So I can’t back any big-government or big-business candidate that sees the future of American medicine being run by the government-big-business cabal. That rules out RomneyCare(tm) and Newt the statist “consultant” for me, personally. Do I harbor some delusion that Michele as President would fix everything in 4 years, no. But based on her voting record, I think she’s the candidate that would best keep America from going in a wrong direction and get American going in a better direction.

If she had snot dripping down her nose and smelly dirty clothes on as she whined and whined and whined, but she voted Conservatively, as a conservative I’d see her as the logical choice.

Democrat Politicians had to stop Herman Cain, and they attacked him with the oldest, dirtiest trick in their armamentum of hideous, racist, dirty tricks--just as they have attacked Black men throughout the horrifying, racist history of the Democrat Party--with accusations and implications of sexual misconduct toward a White woman.

And the American public fell for it--yet again.
