    Palin always sounds like a ditzy high-schooler trying to b.s. her way through a final by filling the exam book with these run-on sentences in hopes that amid the calamity of disjointed thought, she sounds convincing enough to pass.

    Nor was Bachmann made by John McCain or another politician. She got herself in office, and inserted herself in national politics and stays relevant by participating in the political process, not tweeting. She won't need half as much "handling" as Palin did.
    But the crazy factor will weigh her down in the long hall. She'll make headlines, but not get the primary numbers. Down the road, the leaders will be kissing her ass to get the fringe endorsement. She'll probably try to bargain for VP bid--which would tank 2012 for the GOP.

    Overall, she has a better chance to win over Palin.. It would be funny to see them debate each other though...
    Dream Scenario: Palin-Bachmann run as an independent ticket. Back to the days of Perot and Jackson, when there three podiums at the debates. Watch the smile come over President Obama's face as he watches the GOP candidate try to differentiate himself from Palin and come off as too moderate.

    The GOP house has been piss-pour so far -- delivering nothing they promised the Tea folk. Too many fringe and private interests are going to deliver a pile of hurt to the middle and lower income wallets.

    I wish they would have a live panel of fact checkers at the debates. Watching Palin/Bachmann's red FALSE light go off constantly would be amusing.

    I found it interesting that not a single one of Bachmann's statements on PolitiFact is more than "half-true".

    the very real problem the Republicans have is that the type of candidate who most appeals to their activist base is also the least appealing to the Independents who are needed to win the election. The electorate which votes in November or 2012 will not be the same people who voted in November of 2010 but far closer in demographic make up to those from November 2008. Turnout will be much higher, far more minorities will vote, and the number of younger voters will return to 2008 levels.

    Re: Adviser: Bachmann likely to enter WH race

    You are being a bit misleading, eh?

    That was a story/link from 6 months ago and was regarding her re-election campaign for Congress. My earlier point was addressing the magnitude of a national/presidential campaign. Don't believe she will garner the support/following of the big dollar donors at a national level. Just my guess....

    Not necessarily true. Right now, with the election only a little more than a year and a half off, Romney is the front runner, and he does qualify as a moderate republican who could do well in the general.

    Romney would be a respectable candidate. So would a few of the midwest Governor pack.

    Personally think Gingrich is the most suitable for actually holding the job of President. But don't believe he could overcome his "baggage" in the predictable media onslaught.

    Who do you see as a midwest Gov that has enough name recognition to make a real run this time?

    As a democrat, Romney is the one republican that I find really worrisome. If the economy is still real bad come Nov '12, Obama is gone pretty much no matter who runs(cept maybe the fringe folks), if it is real good, Obama wins against any one. If the economy is like it probably will be, better but not great, Romney is the only one I could see with a real chance ass a republican.
