Man do you have low standards -- most of what she says is half truths or lies. I lie is too strong of a word for you then you would have to admit that she is just a dumbass, and if not that then perhaps she is just visiting this planet.


Speaking of verbal gaffes, how would you rate Obama or Biden?

Off topic.
If Wallace must ask every candidate the same question, must O'Reilley ask every president from here on out "Why do people hate you?". And why hasn't he done so before?

I know it's wrong to judge a book by its cover, but c'mon!

The woman looks fake. Her face is half ABS/PVC. I have a hard time taking anyone seriously who spends thousands upon thousands to alter their natural appearance.

I don't think she's a flake though. She seems much more intelligent that many others out there. Time will tell of course.

Like the Fairness Doctrine, right? You support that now?


Bachmann IS a flake. But I thought she handled it excellently! I'd die before I voted for her, but she did a good job this time.

There is a difference between a gaffe -- which is a slip of the tongue about something that was not a mistake -- do you really think Pres. Obama dosen't know how many states there are -- really

What Bachmann does is make the "gaffe" the she doubles down defending it -- also a gaffe is a simple slip an does not go on for paragraphs clearly demonstrating that the person has no idea what they are talking about, or the are just flat out being dishonest - I'm not certain which is worse. Look at her history - she has some bold misconceptions of facts.

All you ever do is attack Obama and then attack liberals for their penchant for the attack. You are so transparent.
I would like to see you just once say something in defense of your queens when the topic is one of your queens instead of always attacking Obama and thinking that makes your queens look good.

Once again:

Your only method of discussion is to tear down tear down tear down. Very boring, and very childish. When you can discuss issues like an adult, come back. Otherwise, go away and stop bothering me. Character assassination is your forte', I realize, but it's a dead art.


You were saying.

Obama is not the topic of this thread, nor is he the topic of the thread about Palin you keep jabbering about Obama in. Make up some lies about me and accuse me of attacking again. The more you write, the less credible you get. Getting less credible than a proven liar is gonna suck a little.

That's a stretch, even coming from you. You wouldn't understand; it's a conservative thang. You're accustomed to MSNBC where that kind of remark is de rigueur.

And your messiah is a bumbling fool, but he'll still get your vote next year, eh?

Simple. Because

a) Bachmann is not a flake, and

b) Everybody does hate Obama.



And why hasn't he done so before?


I don't know. Why don't you ask him, eh bunky?

Now Bachmann is being attacked from another angle. Once again, she succeeds in kicking butt:

Stephanopolous gets his lunch handed to him

Another look at it

They want to 'investigate' her 23 fostered kids? Nothing but a witch hunt!

He speaks well off the cuff, but if you only have republicans to compare with -- the bar is pretty damn low.
