She’s a contender. Bachmann pulled off a victory despite the doubters (funny how those migraines didn’t seem to slow her down for one second.) When asked by Byron York during the GOP debate about being “submissive” to her husband, she gave the response that likely propelled her to victory. Here’s a further explanation: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/274505/michele-bachmann-not-running-wife-chief-nancy-french#
I can tell you from first-hand experience that Bachmann is a dynamo and an outstanding speaker. Of course, Perry entered the race today so things are getting very interesting indeed. One thing’s for sure – I don’t care if it’s Bachmann, Perry or Romney, ANY of them would be better than the joke we have sitting in the Oval Office now. (Sidenote: Ron Paul got second place in the Iowa Straw Poll. Figures. He needs to go away.)
ALOHA, ALL! Michele Bachmann gets migraines. Big Whoop. She has also raised 5 kids and 23 foster kids. But she gets migraines. She has served in Congress, worked as a tax attorney, and owned a small business. But she gets migraines. The lamestream media made such a big deal out of Bachmann’s headaches and the fact that an “unnamed source” claimed she was incapacitated by them. So I’m wondering: have we ever seen Barack Obama’s full medical record? (It’s a rhetorical question – we have not.) We do know that he smokes….holy Marlboro Man! Shouldn’t we be concerned about that??? Give me a break – the sexist media machine is at work once again, showing their disdain toward strong, conservative women. I STILL say the election of Barack 0bama showed that Americans are indeed post-racial (or even too willing to give a person the benefit of the doubt because he’s non-white.) Of course, some might validly argue that 0bama has set race relations back 20 years. But sexism still abounds. So I couldn’t care less about Bachmann’s migraines – I’m more concerned about the guy in the White House who’s causing us all to have a big, fat headache on a daily basis!
0bama thinks he has all the answers. Narcissist-in-Chief Isn’t Happy: Would be Easier If I Could Do This Debt Thing by Executive Order and By-Pass Those SOBs Boehner and Cantor – Common American Journal “I’m sympathetic to your view that this would be easier if I could do this entirely on my own. It would mean all these conversations I’ve had over the last three weeks, I could have been spending time with Malia and Sasha instead,” President Obama said at a town hall. TIME WITH MALIA AND SASHA????? Give me a break – you’d be out on the golf course!
Speaking of headaches. I actually saw this on Fox News the other day – it’s great!
Here’s a solution: Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes I’ve heard in all this drama about the debt ceiling: “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.” (Hat-tip to Marvin for that one!)
Is the Tea Party movement relevant? Ask George Will: Time Is on the Side of Tea Party Reforms – Common American Journal “Thanks largely to the tea party, today, more than at any time since Reagan’s arrival 30 years ago, Washington debate is conducted in conservatism’s vocabulary of government retrenchment. The debt-ceiling vote, an action-forcing mechanism of limited utility, has at least demonstrated that Obama is, strictly speaking, unbelievable.”
ICYMI – Here’s what Dirty Harry Reid had to say about Cut Cap and Balance on Friday: “If they [Senate Republicans] want to debate it tomorrow for a period of time, they can do that, but I’m going to — I think this piece of legislation is about as weak and senseless as anything that has ever come on this Senate floor … The American people should understand that this is a bad piece of legislation. Perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country.” Meanwhile, here’s what he said in 2006 – HE THOUGHT IT WAS OUTRAGEOUS THAT WE MIGHT INCREASE THE DEBT LIMIT TO $9 TRILLION: HEY HARRY – YOUR DUPLICITY IS SHOWING!!!!!!!
And what is the other hand doing? End of the Line | FreedomWorks “Behind the scenes, while Washington and the United States focus on the debt crisis, President Obama’s EPA has been quietly implementing one of the most radical and costly policies of his administration. Ever since the failure of cap-and-trade, the administration has turned to the EPA to carry out its radical environmental agenda.”
Meanwhile, back in the Heartland. Wisconsin Accounts For More Than Half of New Jobs in June and Kasich Touts Ohio’s Improvement in CNBC Business Survey Well, well, well……how do you like them apples, 0bama and union thugs?????
Survey Says….Trust on Issues – Rasmussen Reports™ “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 45% trust Republicans more when it comes to handling economic issues, while 35% put more trust in Democrats.”
The growing concern over Kagan. Letter_to_Judiciary_Committee_re_Kagan_Recusal.pdf “Contradictory to her 2010 confirmation testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, recently released Department of Justice (DOJ) documents indicate that Justice Kagan actively participated with her Obama Administration colleagues in formulating a defense of PPACA.” PPACA = 0bamacare. Kagan = 0bamacare lackey.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by the attacks in Norway.
Final Thought: “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” Ronald Reagan
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
