    "But why is it so hard for you to offer a rational alternative?"

    Have you seen Obama's sinking favorable poll ratings lately. The Blacks, Hispanics, liberals, and moderates are all turning their backs on him. It is beginning to look like Donald Duck could win the 2012 presidential election .... but only if he ran against Obama.

    Hey Blue - in what way do Perry and Bachman, who have a combined polling average of about 35% (including only 8% for Bachman), prove there is no coherent base and leadership for the GOP? We're pretty much all for smaller government, more fiscal restraint, traditional interpretation of the Constitution, and more conservative social values.

    I'll bet you brag about the DNC's "big tent," and don't nit-pick at the crazies on your side, yet you rail against the GOP for including the followers of Bachman and Perry, along with Cain, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul, among others.

    People like you need to overreach in your embarrassing caricature of Bachman's perspective, and somehow tie it to a "tragically large portion of the population" (apparently 8% of Republicans constitute a "tragically large portion of the population) in order to mischaracterize the entire GOP in hopes of preying upon people's "ignorance, fear, and Dark Ages mentality" for the benefit of Democrats.

    Maybe you could recognize a "rational alternative" if you first had a rational perception of Republican candidates and their followers.

    "...noting that she had five children of her own and that she and her husband, Marcus, who joined her onstage had taken in 20 foster children...".

    I thought she "raised" 23 foster children?

    I know that she has "taken in" a lot of Conservative Evangelical Christian voters.

    So, "taken in" = "raised"?

    She would rather that we all settle for ignorance...and embrace her Dominionism version of Christianity.

    Bachmann is lying again.

    Obamacare specifically forbids Federal funding for abortions.

    Bachmann and Perry are proof-positive that the GOP has no coherent base, no coherent leadership, and no coherent message to offer Americans. It relies on the ignorance, fear, and Dark Ages mentality of a tragically large portion of the population for political support.

    Bachmann is at best two steps away from calling for witch-burning as a solution to social woes.

    Conservatives, I respect the fact that you don't like President Obama. That's pretty much your job. But why is it so hard for you to offer a rational alternative?

    I will relish the day I do not have to read one single thing about that woman.

    "They just don't get my vote."

    Actually you'd gladly vote for Bachmann ..... if she was a Democrat.

    Does not sound like she will be in the running much longer.
    No more of her strange(what in the world did she mean?) statements.

    Evangelical leaders have their place.

    They just don't get my vote.
