    It was completely appropriate. She wants to be elected to lead the highest office in the United States, and she made a statement suggesting she is incapable of leading. If she considers herself intellectually at the mercy of someone who isn't even in elected office and is not aware of all the information she would be, how exactly can she lead?

    If her religion goes so far as to render her own decisions worthless, then it is absolutely appropriate to ask the question of why she thinks she's able to be Commander in Chief.

    While I agree the question is appropriate to ask, imo the answer is obvious, so the reason to ask it anyway is simply to see how well she can vocalize the answer.

    In 'traditional' Christian families, when the wife is any level of boss in her employment, she does not submit to her husband when making business decisions. POTUS is no different.

    I don't think she responded very well to the question. She could have articulated this fact succinctly and used it to step off on another point.

    The question came about from her comments that her husband told her to study tax law, even though she had no interest in the subject and did not want to, but she was supposed to submit to her husband so did(paraphrase, not exact words obviously, if any one has link to actual words would appreciate it). So in fact submit to her husband in a business decision, as he chose her career for her.

    Again, when you make your Christian faith a hallmark of your candidacy, such questions are appropriate.

    I wish someone asks her about how the Bible says a woman CANNOT hold authority over a man.

    Foxnews and others are trying to portray it as not being subservient...how is not ? if she didnt want to do it and did it because her husband wanted her too...frankly my wife wouldve slapped me around and told me to get lost if I tried that on her

    She could have. Instead, she chose to step around the question and not give it a direct answer.

    So, would she be the submissive wife as POTUS or not? Since she didn't answer, one is lead to believe that she might.

    I "want to ignore" it? I said "I cant see how anyone can be UPSET about the question. If a candidate makes religion a focal point of their personality, then people have the right to ask to what level that applies" yet I want to ignore it? How about a little more honest response...you want to pretend I said something I didnt because...heck...I dont know...this mindless knee-jerk need you have to be contrary.

    Re: What Did You Think Of This Question?

    Hey, in 2008 when Obama campaigned, stating that Rev. Wright was like a father to him, and quoting his own book where he said Rev Wright was the most influential man in his life, people took a hard look at Rev. Wright's controversial teachings and went, "whoa!" Questions about Wright's anti-white views were posed to Obama, as they should have been. Obama was not happy about that, but tough noogies. People had a right to know what he thought, and whether Wright's views would be taken into the whitehouse. People have the same right to know about Bachmann, when her campaign rhetoric is controversial to a lot of voters.

    Same thing, same ****.

    ...Except for the fact that her act of submission was in direct relation to her employment. So, obviously, she DOES submit to her husband when making business decisions - up to and including what her business should be. That's why it's a relevant question.

    Without supporting or defending their marital dynamic of submitting, I think there's a difference between choosing a career path, and making decisions within that career path.

    This isn't a uniquely Christian dynamic, either. When I was 16 my father told me to go to a particular fast-food restaurant (because they were hiring) and apply. So I did. Once hired I quickly became a supervisor (mostly because I know how to show up, on time, and sober, lol). While my father told me to enter this business field, he did not then micromanage that business through me, even thoe as his minor child I was morally (and in some ways legally) obligated to 'submit' to him.

    Guiding a spouse into a career field they would excel in is related to the marital relationship, while specific business decisions made in the office are not.

    I would like to know if there's a history of her husband making specific business decisions, ie micro-managing her office, through her; running her office through her.
