Bachmann didn't even show up for the job she was elected to do. Her
attendance record was 3rd worse in the entire House, and one of the two beneath
her was Gabby Giffords! Are there any official odds out on her next job coming
from Fox News? If Palin's deal is any indication, she'll soon be in
seven figures while looking for sympathy.
Why is this of interest to anybody???She's just a politician.
Politicians come, and politicians go... that's the way it's supposed
to be.Washington agreed. Politician shouldn't be a lifetime
thing. Not every politician needs to be like Tedd Kenedy (how owned his
office). He was re-elected even after he was incapacitated and couldn't
function. I think it's good when politicians eventually leave political
life and prove they can be successful at something else. Anything else.
She's moving on... that's not a big deal.
We can only hope Lee and Chaffetz ignore the writing on the wall, continue to
follow in Bachmann's footsteps and suffering the same fate.
One of the best ever, that's for sure! I really hope she and Palin run for
president in 2016. They would be such a blessing for this country.
I will never forget her "rebuttal" to the President's State of the
Union speech, the one she gave to the wrong camera. It was far weirder and more
hilarious than anything on SNL. As for her leaving, HOORAY!!!
Too bad,I was rooting for her to win the GOP nomination last go around.
Want to know what says it all?Republicans? Are rejoicing. Judging by
their Reaction you would swear that Reagan had been resurrected, won another
election, privatized ss, outlawed green energy, and declared war on Iran!Democrats? Many are just too busy giggling. Some are sad. She was one of
our greatest weapons against the GOP. Too bad she had to go. I was really hoping
for her to screw up the 2016 election. All well. There's always hopes for
Palin!Thanks tea party! Michele won more votes for the democrats
than could have ever been imagined! Thank you for all the votes and fantastic
jokes for late night tv!!! I will never forget you!
Note to Conservatives.Conservative values are not crazy ideas. It is not necessary to anoint looney people to be the spokesperson for
Bye-bye, Michelle. No one will miss you.
"Conservative values are not crazy ideas.". So what does it say Joe for
modern day conservatives that their banner bearers are crazy, almost to a person
(and I include here those who simply want to shut down government)?
Patriotic people of faith love her - liberal socialist's hate her.I hate to
see Michelle go - she is one of the few patriots left in congress. Unlike her
liberal associates on the other side of the isle she never sold her soul to
Satan ..so to speak. Also unlike some of the purple republicans Michelle kept
with her Reagan like 'bold colors'.
re:one old manSomething tells me you would be saying the same thing
to Thomas Payne, George Washington , and all the other constitution loving
patriots of years past. Liberals like yourself see those who fight for freedom
and the constitution as "obstructionists" .... obstructing the way and
move to your Communist utopia. My message to you and all all your American
hating followers on the left - freedom is not free and it doesn't come from
a government welfare check either.
" So what does it say Joe for modern day conservatives that their banner
bearers are crazy, almost to a person"It means that they wont
win national elections.I do not judge the whole GOP by the views of
the farthest right. Just like it is unreasonable to judge Democrats by the left
wing of the party.While I disagree with Ted Cruz on just about
everything (as he is too far right for me), at least he is articulate and
avoids the "crazy" of people like Bachmann.I consider myself
a moderate. I could potentially vote for a Christie.He is issue based and
reasonable.Bachmann, Gohmert, Palin? Those are off the deep end.But, as shown by comments even on this article, some people love those
who are short on substance but long on partisan snipping.
@Mark B"Bachmann didn't even show up for the job she was elected
to do. Her attendance record was 3rd worse in the entire House"I
am no Bachmann fan at all (heck I was going to joke that her not being around is
a public service) but in fairness to her she was running a presidential campaign
so it's not like not-campaigning was an option.
I saw a montage of insipid things she said. She represents in some ways what
plagues the tea party in some ways. She's an intellectual light weight and
we dodged a bullet that she didn't get traction in the Republican race for
@patsy"...Patriotic people of faith love her...".I agree.I would love to see her as the face/voice of the
Republican Party FOREVER!
@patriot 10:07 a.m. May 31, 2013Patriotic people of faith love her .
. .-----------------------------------I am a patriotic
person of faith (LDS). I beieve that capitaism, subject to reasonable controls,
is the correct economic path to follow. If you beieve attempting to impose
fascism, as Michelle tried to do, is patriotism then you have every right to do
so. I do not.And, by the way, neither President Reagan nor Senator
Goldwater ("Mr. Conservative" who defined and estabished conservatism in
the 1960s and was considered to be on the far right extreme at that time) would
have a prayer of making it throught a nomination process conrolled by the far
right extremists of today -- both of them would be called "RINO" and
rejected.Your comment is wrong.
