    All I can say is, there must be a hell of a lot of people who don't care about facts or they wouldn't be following this half truth telling, sensational and attention grabbing woman's lead. This is a very dangerous trend

    Well if we can't have:
    Palin 2012
    or
    Trump 2012 -
    Bachmann 2012 will do just fine.

    Bachmann 2012!
    On to defeat!

    +1

    Sadly, that is why Republicans have such a stronghold in the South (high percentage of uneducated residents and poor public education systems).

    Surely the GOP can do better than this. Maybe Jeb Bush should run (third time lucky for the Bush dynasty?).

    Only temporary no doubt. Bachmann will say or do something to show how unstable she is.

    WILL say? She's already said them countless of times over the years. In fact, it would be easier to count the times she's said something rational, sensible & true.

    She has a potent mix going for her: ignorance that doesn't give a damn about facts, simplistic answers, shared fear/hatred with others of her ilk. But she'll never make it to the real nomination - even the GOP is too intelligent to allow that to happen.

    Though I wish it would...

    Oh, but doesn't that make her the perfect Tea Party Style Republican?

    And a gratuitous silly pic too...

    It may get even harder for Tea Party conservative star Michele Bachmann to slam federal spending in her 2012 presidential campaign -- now that a new report shows her husband has gotten $137,000 in Medicaid funding at his mental health clinic.

    The scoop was revealed today in a new NBC News report, with data obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. The NBC story says that clinical therapist Marcus Bachmann's Bachmann & Associates firm has been collecting previously reported annual Medicaid payments that have topped $137,000 since 2005 -- on top of another $30,000 in federal and state funds reported recently.


    The NBC report comes on the heels of a Los Angeles Times piece this week that stated that Bachmann, R-Minn., who has made a campaign against federal spending a hallmark of her presidential run, was also a partner in a farm interest that had received $260,000 in federal subsidies.

    Moreover, the LA Times said, Bachman "has sought to keep federal money flowing to her constituents,'' even while she has publicly criticized the Obama administration's stimulus program and has vowed to undo the health care plan passed by Congress which she calls "Obamacare."

    Bachmann has requested stimulus funds to support projects in her district, but "although she has been a fierce critic of earmarks -- calling them 'part of the root problem with Washington's spending addiction' -- she argued recently "that transportation projects should not be considered congressional pork,'' the Times said.
