    27 people honestly think Bachmann can be elected president? I have a hard time believing that they really think that... I suspect a lot of them don't actually think she could win, they just want to express that they don't like Obama... Right? Nobody actually believes somebody like Bachmann could actually be president of the United States do they?

    Hey, some people will believe anything they hear on FAUXNews. There is no shortage of intellectually challenged voters in America. But, the good news is, most Americans ARE smarter than that and it pretty much renders the challenged insignificant. Give them their 15 seconds of spotlight. Don't be hatin'. LOL!

    With the economy in the state it is right now, I think my cats could beat Obama.

    The economy. Employment. Taxes. All of these rank so much higher than the hippie BS you just listed, it's not even in the same ballpark.

    You want a huge oil-producing state to have strict environment laws? You want to force kids that don't want to go to school to do so against their will? You want to force people who can't afford (or don't need) insurance to accept it at gunpoint? Sorry, I have more compassion than to force unwanted things upon people. If the fight against an entitlement nanny state involves some 40 year olds working at Wal-mart for no benefits and a little more coming out of the smoke stack, it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

    I don't know if that is true. Maybe. But I do know that your cats would definitely do waaaay better than Michelle Bachmann.

    Perhaps you should get your cats to run then, because the polls show all the current crop of GOP presidential wanna-be's rated lower than Obama in a match up.

    That speaks volumes when the people in his own state prefer Obama to him.

    If it is not Romney or someone else that can appeal to the center Independents - the GOP should just phone it in next year. Of course, given the make-up of their primary base - fat chance it will be Romney. This is a party that made a deal with the devil and now is possessed and that head spin hurts like hell.

    That is exactly the type of short-sighted greed thinking that has our country where it is today.

    And, Perry's jobs' claim is more horse manure than would fit in his ten gallon hat, as has been exposed:
