This morning I was listening to the radio, surprised that people seemed to think M. Bachmann actually was impressive. Then I saw msn.com and they
showed her looking like a crazy witch, totally a Hillary Clinton style face expression.
It cracks me up that the MSM is so blatant with their biased reporting.
Yeah, but msn.com is also showing pictures of Michelle Bachman in a favorable way. Perhaps there is an inner political war in the company. I actually
think the main media slant is heavily towards Bachmann. Saying Bachmann did well in the debate is basically an endorsement for her. Certainly up from
them talking about whether she should be taken seriously or not.
One of the reasons Ron Paul wasn't taken more seriously last time is because of the pictures used of him weren't airbrushed. That's one of the main
reasons people consider voting for him.
I think the main reason Bachmann is getting support is to split the vote between her and Ron Paul. If she decides she wants to go back to the gold
standard, that could very well cost him the election.
This is the election scam
that has been controlling the election for
years; if someone starts to gain traction who has unapproved ideas, they make him look bad in MSM. If that doesn't work, back someone who has similar
unapproved political ideas in order to divide the vote. If Bachmann hadn't announced she was thinking of going back to the gold standard, she would've
gone up in the polls, but not this much, as she would've gotten a poor media slant.
Will that tactic work in this case? I don't know. I think if Ron Paul can take down Bachmann, the election (if the votes were actually counted
properly, as you pointed out) would be his. All the support for Michelle Bachmann would go to him, and he would only continue to gain steam.
How would he do that? I think an actual debate (not in Town Hall format like last night's was), is where Ron Paul could really stand out, especially
as we get less and less people. I think the final debates will be Bachmann vs. Gingrich vs. Romney vs. Paul. I think a lot of people would be swayed
if they're are actually answering the same question. It will be much easier to compare and see that Ron Paul's ideas can help the country more than
I'm not necessarily saying he's going to win; as you pointed out, that would likely be devastating to TPTB (perhaps they decided it's easier to simply
get America in non-interventionist foreign policy to keep America out of World War 3 than to collapse the economy; if the Western world and most of
the Christian countries were backing Israel, the war would be over very quickly). But I think that's why Bachmann is gaining so much in the
