    What she is - a self serving hypocrite who talks the talk but cannot walk the walk. .... is all that counts.

    And this is about me how? I'm merely pointing out that Bachmann is a hypocrite (but most politicians are). I do find it amusing that you on one hand are for less government and on the other are for more government at the same time.
    If the purchase is for the military or schools or the poor your point is moot

    Personally, as I have stated earlier, I'm not against the government buying goods. But Bachmann is a hypocrite for saying this.
    How so since the government is going to purchase them she should try to get it to be from her state.

    Thats not ideology. Thats simple greed and selfishness.

    yeah? tell me how you feel about (say) government spending in Iraq v government spending on public education.



    If more on this comes out and is verified, it will hopefully hurt her with Tea Party-esque voters a'la Miller in Alaska.

    Overall an upstanding, consistant candidate, who looks out for the electorate rather then her own pocketbook
    well, her electorate did indeed benefit from agricultural subsidies - it just seems she did so as well. However, I agree that Aggy subsidies are no better than any other form of governmenal attempt at price-fixing.

    she seemed to suggest that they were for "price stabilization" purposes - which is indeed one of the forms that our agricultural subsidies take.

    For that idea alone she deserves to be President.
    what you insist you are unable to grasp is the obvious
    she would have no reason to write to the federal agricultural agency, encouraging more federal buys, if it was simply purchasing goods as needed for federal purposes
    what she was advocating was more federal government manipulation of the hog belly market, via its significant purchases, thereby propping up pork prices
    and benefiting her own financial position to boot, thru her partnership in a farm realizing the ag subsidies

    all the while pretending to inveigh against federal intervention in commodity markets
    a republican. a hypocrite. yes, i did repeat myself

    This is only believable if you can show what the government did with the products
