BLITZER'S BLOG: Michele Bachmann was right

(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann made an important point on Pakistan during our CNN national security debate. She said Pakistan is "too nuclear to fail."

She added: "We've got to make sure that we take that threat very seriously."

She's right.

    I agree. Last week I wrote on this blog that she finished in the top 3, mainly for that one remark. It was the most inciteful remark made by anyone.

    Michele has to be careful about releasing classified information.

    Right. Real inciteful remark. Next she'll be telling us, after thoughtful analysis, that doughnuts have round holes in the center. Then all the slack-jawed dweebs on here can say their catechism to the almighty rightwing nimrod Bachmann.

    If [R]s exclusively interbreed, in a few generations we should have something like a pure Neanderthal for the scientists to study.

    My apologies to Rep. Bachmann. Instincts kicked in.
    That should have read, "It was the most *insightful* remark made by anyone."

    At least she's one up on Cain. He probably couldn't spell Pakistan if you gave him the P, A, K and I.

    “Too big to fail” always very good excuse, We can’t give what ever Pakistan wants because they have Nuclear weapons

    Pakistan is spoiled kid in that region, our fault we let Pakistan grow that way time for us to unplug

    It's the one thing she is actually educated on. If she actually KNEW things before making statements on them...she'd be a much better candidate.

    Education...it's amazing stuff.

    Well truly I do not see where she is "right" only because this is NOT news to many people. They have been for many years now so why on earth is it news because she spuewed the words from her mouth? Just drop out already M.B. sick of looking at your "too made up face".

    She's history, time to go home and get defeated in your next election. A cow could beat you in mn. It takes one to vote for one.

    Who cares if she was right. A clock that's stopped is right twice a day. That's 100% more than her.
