    I'm still waiting for full disclosure of the $6M in campaign contributions she has yet to account for.

    Concord, the Capital City of New Hampshire

    ...On January 17, 1725, the Province of Massachusetts Bay, which then held jurisdiction over New Hampshire, granted it as the Plantation of Penacook.[3] It was settled between 1725 and 1727 by Captain Ebenezer Eastman and others from Haverhill, Massachusetts. On February 9, 1734, the town was incorporated as Rumford,[4] from which Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford would take his title. It was renamed Concord in 1765 by Governor Benning Wentworth following a bitter boundary dispute between Rumford and the town of Bow; the city name was meant to reflect the new concord, or harmony, between the disputant towns.[5] Citizens displaced by the resulting border adjustment were given land elsewhere as compensation. In 1779, New Pennacook Plantation was granted to Timothy Walker, Jr. and his associates at what would be incorporated in 1800 as Rumford, Maine, the site of Pennacook Falls....
    At that point in time, New Hampshire wasn't a political entity, and Massachussetts extended over Concord.


    So (again) Bachman is proven to be historically accurate, and her detractors laughably desperate to cling to any semantic that can bring her down a peg.



    really. it's a capital city. you would have thought that would have picked at someone's memory.

    I want to see Palin, O'Donnell, and Bachmann compete on Jeopardy.

    Why do republicans support every republican no matter how big of a fool that person is? If they had any brains they would cut her lose and start supporting those that have a chance to beat Obama.

    Ya think Mark Twain had Bachmann in mind when he said - "Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."..LOL!

    While it is true there is a Concord in New Hampshire, the towns of Lexington and Concord of which she is referring to are both in Massachusetts.

    I can barely remember what I had for breakfast this morning, so such a thing doesn't really concern me..

    So I'm posting anyway.

    New Hampshire needs to stop claiming credit.
