    If you're having a conversation with Jay Leno, and he's the voice of reason in the conversation, it's time to do some soul-searching.

    Michele Bachmann is obviously pro gay marriage since she's married to a gay man.

    Good on her for appearing in hostile territory.

    I like Michelle Bachmann and as long as she's representing her constituents, more power to her.

    I would never vote her for President. I don't think she has the perspective or inclusiveness, and the homophobia is just off-putting.

    I'm surprised. When I saw Heath Ledger on Leno for Brokeback Mountain, I got the impression that Leno had never met a gay person in his life and was very uncomfortable talking about it. He seems clearly fine with us now.

    It's pretty crappy for her to try to avoid the issue since it's the only reason she's on the show, right?

    She's virtually a robot. The minute the questions go off her script, she reverts to whatever her campaign managers have fed her.

    A minor improvement over Sarah Palin I suppose, who just got all sort of haywired when tossed a question outside her scope, but not much.

    I just hope this witch isn't the future of the GOP. I'll really be disappointed.

    I don't think Michelle Bachmann knows the sad, closeted homosexual she is hitched to is probably blowing guys in bus station washrooms, at rest stops and in other seedy locales.

    Or something.

    I'm pretty sure that the election is all but a lock for Obama regardless of who the GOP candidate is, unless the very unlikely happens and Ron Paul gets the nomination. And even then, the contest would be a nail-biter.

    But if Bachmann gets it, it would be certain truth then that the forces of religious reaction are very much in control of the GOP.

    It speaks ill of our country that people like Palin and Bachmann can reach the level of national interest.

    I don't worry one bit about MB or what she has to say. I'm around republicans all day long - at work and socially on days off. In fact I am a republican, but nobody I know is voting for this woman. In conversations everywhere, she just doesn't have enough support to make it. She will fall away and be forgotten someday. Remember Geraldine Ferraro? Same story. Let MB go about saying anything she likes. She's not the candidate most republicans want.

    ^^^ this


    Obama's biggest worry should be Huntsman.

    But he cant win it because he isn't crazy enough. He is pro-civil union.

    Michelle Bachmann is such a side show, with those crazy eyes of hers and her queened out hubby. It'll be interesting to see what kind of stupid things she'll have to say in 2012!

    Do you think Leno would "confront" Obama in the same way?

    No, because Obama isn't actively working to restrict the rights of a minority group and it's good that you say "confronted" because Jay didn't confront Michele since he said that he wasn't gonna change her mind anyway.

    Can't undo in 3 years the 8 concentrated years (read: possibly 20 years or more if stretched out) of the economic mess left behind by Bush.

    Bush '43 and Obama together, and the congresses that ruled concurrently with their administrations have done lots of damage - both parties are irretrievably fucked, and are full of fuck-ups who seem hell-bent on reducing us to a status as a fourth-rate power or worse.

    What damage has Obama done? Liken the U.S. to an injured person hemorraghing, then he has at least stanched the flow. Understandable that people are impatient for change and improvement but Bush/Cheney did a lot of mess that will take considerable time to clean up. Either that or people with short term memories can go ahead and vote Republican in 2012 and watch us get into a deeper hole.

    Clearly one of these 3 republicans will face Obama- Bachman, Romney or Rick Perry. I suspect Trump jumps in as an independent for fun and ego much like Ross Perot in 1992. All of this adds up to Obama winning by default, not by popularity. I trust he will be a bit more agressive after he wins. Even if nothing changes at least he controls the next Supreme Court replacement. Until Congress learns to work together again to solve problems nothing much will change. I expect a lot will change after another year of recession leading up to the election. Then in 2013 things begin to move in the right direction.

    Yeah it can if you're a dictatorship, like China.

    If you really think that a politician can turn around the economy of an entire country - whether at all or in a given 3 years - all while having a dysfunctional political system and a world economy on the edge... you're dead wrong

    It's very typical for American politics to paint everything as easy, while it's not. These things are complicated, which is why so few countries actually function well, because you need a group of very competent technocrats running the show, without having some politician order a 180 turn every time there's a new election.

    Having idiot people like religious zealots who don't understand economics or old rusty millionaires playing the armchair socialist making a bunch of random policy suggestions is not gonna do any good.

    America is in trouble for a reason. Despite everything the politicians have done and got away with, there's also something else at play: stop buying shit you can't afford to play along with this cultural imperative of everybody has to be a millionaire. If every American would have thought twice before going on a credit-fueled buying spree, none of this economic shit would have happened to this degree. Regardless whether the government wastes hundreds of billions of dollars on wars.

    A wise man once said that "every country gets the government it deserves". The more places I travel to, the more truth I see in this statement.

    Please vote Bachmann in, I really really hope she'll win - cause oftentimes things need to get worse before they get better.
