    So many candidates.

    Perhaps the GOP should consult with Ringling Brothers to see how they solve the question: "How do you choose the best clown?"

    First of all I haven't seen Bachman's long form birth certificate.

    She thinks that bond holders will just take interest when thier bonds mature? "Yes sir, we won't pay you the 500 million now that your bonds have matured, just the interest. That won't lower our credit rating right?"

    Let's pretend more extravegantly then. Everyone will see we are having a hard time and just forgive our debts.

    And what is Obama wrong about? TARP that Bush started? Stimulus ideas that Bush used post 2000? Obamacare that was a rebublican idea long before Obmama compromised to it? The republican idea of cap and trade? Debt that Regan tripled and Bush doubled? Wars?

    I would vote for Michelle Bachman or Herman Cain. Either one would do wonders for an opptomistic future for America. She speaks my language...give the power to control the future to the individual, not the state. I'm getting tired of hearing the talking points of the DNC, namely "tax breaks for the rich," or "the fast disapearing middle class." What do you expect when we have an anti-capitalist in the white house?

    As stated in the article, this woman has star power. Her economic policies are realistic and carry hope for fiscal recovery that we do not currently have with the Democrats' "spend, spend, spend" mantra. I think local favorite Mitt Romney is going to have his hands full if he hopes to beat this woman out as the Republican Presidential nominee.

    "She said voters can expect her to propose an economic agenda that includes cuts to corporate taxes and phase-outs of taxes on inheritances and investment earnings."

    More tax cuts for the wealthy? Where do you plan to get the money to pay the bills, Mischelle? The fast-disappearing middle class?
