WOW ! With support from deranged dinosaur guitar-twanger Ted Nugent and now queen-of-the-tea-party Michele Bachmann, Romney is really racking up endorsements from the giants of modern conservatism. Impressive.
- Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in December 2011.
The one time in her short-lived run on The GOP Clown Car Show that Ms. Bachmann spoke the truth.
No doubt that the Romney camp must be truly ecstatic today about receiving Ms. Bachmann’s endorsement.

In an effort to woo evangelical voters in Iowa, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has become the third Republican presidential candidate to sign a pledge to oppose gay marriage, to appoint only “faithful Constitutionalists” as judges, to stay loyal to his spouse, to shrink the size of the federal government, and to oppose Islamic law, among other things.
Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann have already signed this alleged “evangelical” pledge. There seem to be some omissions, though. Where are those major points about “loving your neighbor as yourself” or blessing the poor? And what at all do appointing judges who are “faithful Constitutionalists” or shrinking the federal government have to do with any religious belief? Sorry, but this pledge is just wacky.
It’s sad because it’s true… I’m not so sure the social wedge issues are going to whip up the same old base as much anymore. 2012 will be interesting.
Occupy Wallstreet VS GOP Candidates
After Standard and Poor’s downgraded the U.S. credit rating in August, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) called for Congress to return immediately from its recess to restore the nation’s AAA rating.
But when lawmakers eventually returned to Washington in September, Bachmann did not.The House held 60 votes during the month of September, and the Minnesota Republican missed them all.[…]
Before the month-long congressional recess, she had missed around 40 percent of House votes since announcing her candidacy.
