She Couldn't Be Serious...

....or could she? Arguably the wackiest of the right-wing wackos, Michele Bachmann is reportedly seriously weighing a run for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination. ABC News has learned that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is seriously weighing whether to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012. "A source close to the three-term congresswoman said Bachmann will travel to Iowa this month for multiple meetings to seek advice from political forces there and party elders close to the caucus process before coming to a final decision regarding a potential presidential run." http://politicalwire.com/archives/2011/01/05/bachmann_weighing_run_for_president.html?ref=tw-button Does anyone think there's even the most remote possibility anyone could take her seriously as a Presidential candidate? What is this country coming to? Annie

It can't be any worse than Alvin Greene running for president. He says he is going to do it AND on the republican ticket. I have not figured out why he wants to run on the republican ticket this time. But he says he is. Looks like this next race make be picking the LEAST crazy instead of least evil. The debates should be fun though.

It will be like evil vs. crazy...lol! I can't understand why Greene would be running as a Republican, not that the Democrats are anxious to claim him either. I can't resist, one more time...he's still better than DeMented! Annie

The Republicans have painted themselves into a corner. The only candidates acceptable to a majority in the party have no chance of winning a nationwide election. Ideological purity has a price.

I agree trruk1 .. witness what that "trickle down" theory of Mr. Reagan resulted in .. 1-2% of folks hoarding billions! But what takes me to my ultimate sense of pissivity (oh, can I say that here) is that the best and the brightest women may not be taken seriously when being considered for high political offices thanks to folks like Bachmann, O'Donnell, Palin ... all I find in serious need of situational awareness rehab.

Hey, I LIKE that word, gladys! I couldn't agree more, women from my grandmother's generation worked so hard to get the right to vote and now we have women like that gang that's throwing all the hard work away. Annie

Thanks again anniepa for your warm welcome. Apathy .. that's what causes such people as Bachmann to take the political stage. The percentage of American citizens who do not vote is astounding ... just as Ms. Bachmann's situational awareness.

I agree. It's a disgrace how many people never vote or even pay attention to politics or current affairs. However, they sure can tell you every detail of Snookie's or any of the Kardaschians' latest escapades! Annie

This country hit rock bottom the day obama was elected. From here anything is an improvement. I have not followed Michele Bachmann closely, so I don't know that there is any reason she would not make a good candidate. However, liberal women would probably despise her as they do Sarah Palin.

Personally, I don't know of any liberal women who despise either one of them. I certainly DO know liberal women, myself among them, who disagree with most of what they stand for but it's hardly the hatred we're always being accused of. I respectfully disagree with your first sentence. I hate to think what would have happened if Obama had NOT been elected. McCain/Palin would have us dug into a deeper hole than one can even imagine. That is, IF we hadn't gotten into World War III by now... Annie

..Hi annie, Just let me say, if Sarah Palin with her whacky talk in circles rhetoric can get five of those running for RNC chairmanship to say that Palin can be elected as president then this lamebrain, "investigate the Congress for un-American activities" can put herself in the running as well. Look what they just did for her, elevated her to a position on the Intelligence Committee, how crazy is that? But in my mind that gives her status, someone thought that she would be a help on that committee, up for debate really. But if she does run, she'll be a first round knock-out, faster than Guiliani(sp) was put out of his misery. Take care.

Yes and let me ask you, do you have any idea of her politics? what she stands for? what her agenda is? or are you just going to lump her in with your nemesis Palin?

Oh don't challenge Annie on this one. I can assure you she is prossibly the most well versed person on mylot when it comes to Michelle Bachmann's gaffes. She has seen every snippet, edit, and cut of her that MSNBC, Thinkprogress, Huffington Post, and any other left wing source has to offer. From that handpicked material I'm sure she's been able to extrapolate exactly what left wing blogs want everyone to believe she stands for and what her agenda is. As for Palin, well Bachmann will always be Annie's number 2 favorite politician. Christine O'Donnell did come close to that though.

thank you for the correction. I wasnt sure she could see past Palin. For better or worse.

I get it...since I don't like her, she must be perfectly credible as a candidate, right? Tell me, Taskr, did these evil left-wing media sources edit it to make it sound like she said things like "reeducation camps", "armed and dangerous" and "interment camps from the census"? Annie

Why is this any more odd than people like Dennis Kucinich, Howard Dean, or Alan Keyes (who I actually voted for in '96 and '00) running for president? All of these people are considered "wackos" by their opponents and that's never stopped any of them from running.

It probably won't surprise you to learn that I don't consider Kucinich or Dean to be wackos but Keyes is another story. Is he still part of the birther fringe? Annie
