    Typical dem, nothing to add, can only detract.


    He didn't detract from anything and, in fact, he added abundantly to the welfare of the country. How did he do this? He got out of office an incompetent nutjob who, with her cohorts, had been tearing down the country. Kudos to him.

    I hope she reconsiders, too. She brings a brand of crazy to the table that almost no one else matches. Except maybe sarah.

    Terming this anything but "hate" is dishonest. If you love your community, state, or country, and you have better ideas than the incumbent, then run and serve if you have the desire and you're capable of doing it. Sounds like if he had run against Bachman and won, his job would have been over once the votes were counted.

    The honesty of his decision is refreshing. He would do a better job representing his district than she ever did.

    Terming this 'hate' is hyperbole.

    How did the political process become such a hate-filled venue? It's not about the public at large anymore, but about who can better the other person by creating the worst smear campaign ever, and then drop out after someone else chooses not to run to claim victory.

    I really, really, really hope Michelle reconsiders.

    I don't like this.

    Even though Bachmann was a horrible representative who missed a lot and merely served as a puppet for the Koch Bros, I don't like this. Run to serve. Once you win, serve. What this democrat did was run to destroy... Destroy the political career of rep. Bachmann (which didnt need much help to destroy in the first place). Now who wins? Certainly not the voters in that district. Where do they go from here?

    To me, I expect more out of fellow democrats. I get that the GOP would do this. But I can't believe that the Democrats would stoop to the repubs level.

    This actually reminds me of Mia Love. Does anyone expect that she has ideas or plans? That she will make a difference? No. We all know that she is merely serving to destroy Jim Matheson's career. She doesn't care about us. She doesn't care about America. She merely desires the power and recognition of destroying Mr. Matheson.

    How sad!

    Ahhhh. So, the idea of running for an office specifically to defeat someone of the the other party is not just a Republican trait after all... "You should feel incredibly proud..."
