"never gotten a penny" from a family farm (sic) The farm also
received federal crop and disaster subsidies, according to a database maintained
by the Environmental Working Group. From 1995 through 2010, the farm got

You can only be a joke candidate for so long before it stops being funny.
Especially when Paul is the biggest joke running.
Bachmann supporters:Do some homework on the remaining candidates. I
think you may come around to Ron Paul's camp.
She's a class act and I wish her well. Go Mitt
The CAKE is BAKED.
Wonder how much she banked on contributions from suckers and corporate dreamers.
I hardly consider anyone who calls someone they don't agree with a marxist,
socialist and evil just because they don't agree on policy. That is more like
dumb junior high kids stunts. She had some valid and good points she was
running on and could have been taken seriously, but her willy nilly throwing
around of statements such as using an un-named women who know one could find to
attach Governor Perry - just very mean girl high school style attacks. I found
her comments sophomoric and rude, and I don't even like Perry.I
coach a couple of youth sports (football and basketball) and we always teach our
kids to compete hard to win, but that you always play with sportsmanship and
respect. You want to win, but not at the expense of your own personal
integrity. I wish our politicians would do more likewise. Compete to win with
all your might, but do so with honor and respect.There is no such
thing as winning at all cost - because some of those cost are far too high to be
worth it. Bachmann crossed that line several times.
What bothered me about her is her story telling of what happened in history was
a fabrication of facts that didn't exist. If she does not truly understand our
history how can she claim to restore the country? It would be a fairytale
country based on her fairytale stories.
Sorry to see her go.I never expected her to win but I hoped she'd
last a bit longer than this. I think having her as part of the crowd made it
She was Sarah Palin lite. Her appeal to the conservatives faded away for other
more qualified candidates like Santorum. Bachman was simply a passing fad. Like
many House members, even like Pelosi though opposite, she could afford to be
strident. She co-sponsored exactly no bills that passed and was famous for
saying "No" to everything while again sort of being a poor woman's
Sarah Palin. While this is appealing to some, this is not how government works.
That is why usually governors and those with military experience make the best
presidents. They can't afford to be stridently opposed to everything, they have
to work with other people, even those where views may be divergent. Even
Gingrich did that in the House, but Bachmann showed no abilities in this area
based on her little experience in the House and finally people caught on to
There is an article in the Wall Street Journal that said she quit after
finishing last place in Iowa. For all of you who are enamored by Huntsman, he
actually finished much further behind her but they didn't see fit to acknowledge
Wait, she quit?? But I thought she said she was the biggest threat to the Obama
presidency? And that he knew it! And he was so worried about it?Haaaaahahahahaha.
Bachmann was last of the candidates who were trying in Iowa. Incidentally Buddy
Roemer actually finished last (even behind "other" "no
preference" and Cain).
I notice the AP reporter taking the opportunity to falsely list Santorum,
Gingrich and Perry as Conservatives to the exclusion of Paul. A little subtle,
anti-Paul propaganda there, AP? @UtahBlueDevil There is
nothing wrong with saying that someone is "marxist,"
"socialist," or "evil" when it is being said in point of
fact, or as a legitimate opinion. A person actually can be one or more of those
three things. You have fallen for the politically correct lie that says that no
one is allowed to say it like it is, or express legitimate opinion, because it
is "uncivil," or "name-calling."
No, actually I have fallen into the trap of actually wanting to get things done.
Resorting to school ground child like name calling rather than discussing the
issues at hand usually demonstrates that the name caller has reached the limits
of their knowledge and has resorted to bashing the other side to hide their own
ignorance. If you actually have a desire to reach agreement, know what you are
talking about, and have the skills developed to present ideas and influence
others, you don't need name calling.A legitimate opinion should be
based on fact. To presume a third party can better identify someone else's
political leanings shows either amazing levels of arrogance or stupendous levels
of ignorance. Most people branding others as socialist or Marxist have no clue
what those terms mean or they would not through those terms around so loosely.
To presume someone else "evil" based on party affiliation,
that has nothing to do with political correctness. That just demonstrates the
simplistic thinking of the one placing themselves in the seat of judgement.It has nothing to do with political correctness. It is about having
class and actually working toward results.
She would have been a big improvement over what we have now.
Worf,"She would have been a big improvement over what we have
now."Really?You really do not care about your
credibility do you.
Whos Life RU Living?"You really do not care about your
credibility do you."Do I really care of my credibility with
ignorant people? I didn't vote for leaders causing a sixteen trillion dollar
debt, or high unemployment.I worry about ignorant people voting in
the same kinds of leaders who caused this mess.Do you honestly think
our debt would have increased six trillion, had Bachman won the election three
years ago? Unemployment over eight percent?
