    True, and obvious to anyone who watched the whole piece.

    I'm not a Michelle Bachmann fan, and I obviously don't subscribe to her positions on gay issues.

    But I think it's pathetic when people use their children like this.

    If you have something to say, let the words come from your own lips instead of hiding behind your kid and using him like a ventriloquist dummy.

    You have to be beyond bad to make Bachmann a sympathetic figure. But she sure is here.

    And it sounds like the kid really wanted to talk to her but got cold feet when presented with her imposing face.icon_lol.gif

    http://www.chicagonow.com/whats-a-boy-to-do/2011/12/michelle-bachman-and-the-young-activist/I [Jennifer Macara] was the person that recorded this; the mom uploaded.

    Sexuality is only political because ignorant people have made it so. To some people, it's a political stance-- to his mom, and him, it's a part of his life. He loves his mom and her partner.

    Back to the story-- I was standing in line with Elijah and his mom. His mom was going to say something to her, but she got nervous and told me she wanted to leave. We were about to step out of the line but Elijah cried out, "Nooo!" He grabbed onto her coat and pulled her back in the line, saying he wanted to talk to her.

    When we got up to Michele, he got a little stage fright. His mom just didn't want him to not say it because he was afraid, because she knew he would regret it if he didn't. I used to do ballet as a child, and before performances, I'd want to no do it-- my mom pushed me to perform. Afterwards, I'd run to her and tell her how happy I was. How is this any different? If we were shown a video of a child before a school play, or a recital, being pushed to perform and not give into stage fright, would we get the same reaction? My gut says no.

    One was pondering how much brainwashing this poor child has had to endure in their life, just to be used as a political porn by one of it's parents. The left scream like wet cats if a religus parent does the same thing, yet they over look this abuse of a child.

    I think he might be using speech recognition software, which picks up on frequency of word use.icon_lol.gif
