    Michele Bachmann is a slime bag. She is the new Sarah Palin. Lies, and more lies or is it dumb and dumber.

    Curious that bombastic, bellicose right wing blowhards such as Bachmann had no problem with the cost of running the Executive Branch when Reagan, GHW Bush, or GW Bush occupied the White House.

    Perhaps their faux outrage and selective indignation is a matter of some complexion.

    Kudos to the MN 6th for electing one of the most ignorant people in politics. EVER. They must be a proud group of mouth breathing knuckle draggers.

    She dodges it because there was no justification for it compared to other presidents. She just doesn't like him on many different levels.

    It appears Americans, at least the rational folks, have grown tired of the hateful, bigoted, intolerant, clown-car riders. I don't normally notice these things but it wouldn't hurt Michelle Bachman to wash her hair. Greasy hair is not attractive on anybody.

    Rep. Bachmann makes many statements that seem to be off-the-cuff. She does not always back them up even when asked about them. That was a problem when she ran for the GOP nomination. Nothing has changed. One wonders where she gets her information. Do the people of Minnesota expect to be told the truth? Certainly they did when Humphrey and Mondale served as Senators.

    I thought she disappeared. Who needs her around spewing her lies??
    If the Rs are dumb enough to let her run in 2014 they will get what they
    deserve!!

    Lets face it, Bachmann is an idiot. I cannot believe her district keeps her. She makes the GOP, my party, look like idiots.

    What i find the most scariest about this is that woman holds a very high position ....it boggles the mind. What were people of Wisconsin thinking when they elected her to office in the first place. She lies everytime she opens her mouth. People of America wake up!! The lunatics are running the asylum!!

    I would like to have som eof whatever her MN district is smoking because they keep sending this flake to congress to do absolutely NOTHING for them or the country.
    These repugs are incredible mutants.
    The President, any President, deserves a life that we don't have while in office. Just because she has to open her own doors and doesn't get to drive in a big car with that , still in the closet, husband of hers is not anybody's fault.

    We will look back upon Ms. Bachmann's national profile with the same head-shaking disbelief bestowed upon Joe McCarthy. That anyone takes her fact-free pronouncements seriously is astounding.

    Buchmann has no clue or shame. Thanks for displaying it for everyone to see, Dana.
