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.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.
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.Overall, she has a better chance to win over Palin.. It would be funny to see them debate each other though...
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".
Here's the link
Give a man a fish, or he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
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....
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.

Everything seems to be going right with 2012.
