If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
Need I remind everyone she said that instead of answering a question provided by the man trying to copy Anderson Cooper's look? I believe he has a last name that is also a blatant attempt to copy the old man with the suspenders who had a habit of falling asleep on his own radio show back in the day.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
There are many things about Bachman that I dislike. I am completely against her stance regarding homosexuality and SSM issues. However, other issues that I am very passionate about (like abortion) I agree with her and I can see her actually trying to do something about those issues. With Obama I don't see any of my beliefs being enacted, and I do not believe he is a man of good character in the way that he treats political dissidents.

I think all three of them are extremely intelligent, consistently clear-headed, and often right. But none of them are especially well-liked. Obama is charismatic, but only for the duration of the time he's speaking. And all of them had a problem of trying to figure out how to get into the right conversations with their fellow politicians.
I think what all three of them have in common, and what has lended each of them a similar public opinion, is that they are long-term thinkers. They did things that are intended to benefit us down the line, more than right this second.
That is not a popular thing in modern politics. It makes it harder for them to be effective, and it makes it harder for them to get the public on board. People want to see it now - and if it all goes to hell 10 year down the line, they really don't care. As long as they get results now.
I think it's a failing of the public's thinking, more than a failing of those particular politicians.

She's as good of a nomination as any other GOP candidate at this point. There really isn't one strong GOP candidate that I have seen.
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
