Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) – Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann backed out of a scheduled appearance at a candidate forum sponsored by Veterans for a Strong America in Des Moines on Saturday.
Bachmann skipped the event to prepare for Saturday night's Republican presidential debate in Iowa, said her spokeswoman Alice Stewart. The candidate's husband, Marcus Bachmann, spoke in her stead.
Bachmann was one of four candidates who signed up to speak at the forum. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry each delivered an address, as well.
She wants to close all of the VA Hospitals and end all assistance to veterans everywhere, who risked their lives to protect her and her gay husbands right to tell lies to America 24 / 7 / 365.
Time to fold your tent, Ms. Bachmann.
What? She sent Marcus to a Veterans forum? I thought she was against having gays in the military.
This is the kind of republican that makes the party undesirable
As some may already know, despite not receiving a lot of media attention, the most Active Military donations go to Ron Paul. Ron Paul receives more than twice the amount of Active Military Donations than the rest of the GOP candidates combined. Ron Paul is the only candidate running, that receives more donations from the military than Obama. Veterans and Active Military seem to have a better understanding of Paul's position of non-interventionism than the media does, while the media often incorrectly says isolationism. Ron Paul is also an Air Force Veteran, which may explain why many Veterans like and understand him.
I like what Leno said about her the other night.
Michelle Bachman was asked what should be done about the Shiite problem. She responded by saying, eat less Fiber.
Bingbat made the right call after saying that Vet's benefits should be cut. They were waiting for her.
Silly Marcus pranced about in her stead...
Bachmann is done. She is yesterday's news.....
That is hilarious, the potential next First Lady spoke instead of Bachmann ! God Bless the vetrans and if they laughed and farted all through Marcus Bachmanns speech ! What in the world would make anyone think that Marcus Bachmann should make a speech ? Michele Bachmann must have had a migrane and 299 million other more qualified people were not able to fill in.
she can't do both gee like she is going to have anything to say at the debate
Bet she couldn't get her eyelashes on straight and had to cancel. But Marcuth shpoke to them.
For a second there I thought she had finally given up and gone home to Iowa, no wait, Minnesota? Wherever she says she is from today.
I guess there are more bit of misinformation that should be memorized. It is understandable though that you need time to focus.
