BLITZER'S BLOG: Bachmann bites back at Gingrich

(CNN) – Having interviewed Michele Bachmann on many occasions, I can easily say she is one tough lady. She is not shy at all about speaking her mind. And that was very obvious at the GOP debate Thursday night in Iowa when she unloaded on Newt Gingrich.

She told him that it was "outrageous" for him to say she gets her facts wrong. "I'm a serious candidate for president of the United States," she declared repeatedly.

    She does get her facts wrong. Maybe she is memory-challenged?

    Where is the LOVE? Ronald Reagan who said "NO Republican should ever speak ill of another Republican" would be sorely upset over this. Then again I think he would be sorely upset over this GOP bunch and the way his party has gone anyway.

    To nothing but YOUR truth, anyone who is making less then $250,000 a year and is voting for the GOP suffered from internalized oppression or the Stockholm syndrome.

    Funny? I don’t think it’s funny watching my country slide further and further into the abyss. No wonder 70% of the people just want this election to be over with. Our two choices for a “leader” the next four years are between complete insanity on one side and complete incompetence on the other. Whoopee. The focus of the two parties is who gets the blame for the mess we’re in and how they can score cheap political points to gain an advantage in the next election. Meanwhile no one, and I mean no one, does anything, and has no clue how to do anything, about the major structural problems we face. I fail to see anything funny about that.
