Posted on 12/17/2011 6:05:59 AM PST by BarnacleCenturion
In a perfect instantiation of green conservatism, the Gingrich campaign has been fuelling a bandwagon entirely on Newt's hot air. It is nearly midnight, however, and therefore almost time for that bandwagon to turn back into a pumpkin (or rather, lemon), which will leave those conservatives who are a little too focused on the manufactured issue of "electability," and who had almost been persuaded to hold their noses and vote for Gingrich, to return to the drawing board in search of someone who can defeat President Obama. They will (and should) ultimately decide that the answer to their quest was standing before them all along, and that it requires no theoretical compromise after all. The answer is to support a genuine and unequivocal conservative, Michele Bachmann.
For while many of the Republican candidates might be able to defeat the disaster that is Obama, Bachmann would be able to do it in a manner most satisfying for conservatives, namely one which draws attention specifically to the nexus between constitutionalism and the moral tradition of American-style individualism.

What’s a ‘Bachmann?’
I would love for her to have that chance. She’s phenomenal!
I have already read the funny papers this morning, please no more.
Bachmann supporters are starting to sound like Paul supporters.
Only one way...and that's not legal.
There’s always hope, FRiend. I assume by your Texas moniker that you’re a Perry supporter?
Michele Bachmann’s a liar. She should go back to doing her job in the House and stop hustling to be POTUS.
What bothers me about Michele, other than the fact that she is always first to tear down her Republican opponents, is that she has a problem getting, and keeping, her facts and stats correct.
no chance. people see thru that.
Bachmann? She’s a retard. Is she still in the race?
long ago I was :)
but Perry’s inability to string two sentences together without losing his train of thought forced me to consider other alternatives.
I now fully support Gingrich.
Michele’s husband needs to be vetted. There have been “whisperings” that he might be homosexual.
If she’s the nominee, she will indeed trounce Zero. So will any of the other Republican candidates, as El Rushbo has reminded us several times over the last few days.
So there’s no reason not to support the most conservative—Bachmann.
How Bachmann Can Defeat Obama?
She can start by not being at 4% and then she can actually run against Romney.
Better let her in on that at the next telephone booth meeting.
In order to assist in the defeat of Obama, Michele needs to stop beating up his potential opponent(s).
She has shown courage in running for high office and commitment to conservative ideals, but she is creeping me out with her Lady MacBeth impression.
Only an uninformed idiot would ask such a question.
Ref. your Post #12. As a fellow Texan, I dropped Perry for the same reason as you and went to Newt Gingrich also.
Agreed. Actual conservative, including opposition to the lunatic amnesty idea. No wonder establishment and many freepers hate her.
Besides, with her I’m sure we will not have sex scandals emerging. With Newt that is guaranteed.
I agree with her views about 80 to 90% of the time, but if it were only about ideology I would only vote for myself since I agree with myself 100% of the time. She is an intelligent woman who has shown an incredible lack of it in the past 4 months. Every thing out of her mouth is either an insult or a gaffe.
I don't have a problem with people who differ with other candidates like some Freepers, but her attacks have neither been intelligent or constructive. She gets a free pass her on FR on immigration, why I don't understand since she has flopped in 3 months which is a shorter time than the other candidates. She comes off as whinny, vindictive, and infantile.
And only an obvious moron would fail to recognise sarcasm slapping them in the face.
Maybe you're taking some of that Tardasil that Crazy Eyes was babbling about?
she flipped (just over 3 months ago) on immigration yet you still give her a free pass - truly amazing.
Ok, so now you’re repeating Rosie O’Donnell’s slander and just a couple of posts before you complained about Bachmann not getting her facts right... Let me guess, you’re a Newt supporter.
Here’s a video for you:
Michele Bachmann has damaged the considerable goodwill she brought into this campaign, with her scorched earth attacks on Gingrich. Gingrich has a record of achievement and real results - not a perfect man, but real conservative results in leadership. She hurt herself by declaring in the debate that Politifact has confirmed that the facts she cites in her attacks are true. Politifact immediately came out and not only contradicted that claim, but cited a majority of cases where her ‘facts’ are not only mostly not true, but quite a few are ‘pants on fire’ false.
If she wants to have future relevance, she should do what is best for her, the party and the country and enter the 2012 Minnesota Senate race against incumbent Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
Klobuchar is an Obama rubber stamp, very liberal and at this point has no strong GOP challenger. Her polling is solid at this point but hasnt faced any scrutiny.
I liked Michele a lot going into this presidential primary, but she has not made a case that she should be elevated to the presidency at this point in her career. If only she would take all this energy attacking Gingrich and go to her home state and aim at Klobuchar, Michele could do a lot of good for the country and herself by taking back a senate seat. The problem I see is that she would have difficulty and a very tough challenge in a Senate race in her home state. This says a lot about her readiness to compete nationally for the presidency.
The striden bitch from hell jumped the shark. She is no more
>> And only an obvious moron would fail to recognise sarcasm slapping them in the face. Maybe you’re taking some of that Tardasil that Crazy Eyes was babbling about? >>
You nailed it, which then struck me this way: it certainly seems like most of the Bachmann followers are humorless folks who are very likely to have sarcasm fly right by them. Which also is how MB strikes me too. I think I’ve nailed one of the reasons she rubs me wrong. The woman is absolutely humorless.
Perry, Cain, Newt and even Paul show a sense of humor from time to time. Humor requires certain synapses to fire at certain times and to do so quickly. Hmmm.
She went over the top and claimed he was pro-infanticide. That was an overt lie.
From the article: Gingrich said “our focus should be on why is he (Clinton) stopping this legitimate ban of an inappropriate act, rather than allowing the news media to have a field day trying to divide us.”
Which makes sense. Gee, if only such advice could actually be followed now.
The first way for her to beat him is to get her poll numbers out of single digits!!
>> She went over the top and claimed he was pro-infanticide. >>
Just like her attack on Perry and HPV - BACHMANN TURNOFF OVERDRIVE.
I just can’t risk our candidate appearing to be so stupid that he somehow makes Obama look smart by comparison, and that’s exactly what would happen if Perry were out candidate.
The thing is, I don’t just want Obama defeated, I want him destroyed and humiliated. I want this myth that Obama is “brilliant” shattered into a million pieces, and Gingrich is just the man to do it.
Well, I'm from Florida but I'm with y'all for exactly the same reasons.
>> Micheles husband needs to be vetted. There have been whisperings that he might be homosexual. >>
Let’s just say he won’t be confused for Todd Palin.
“LOL. I remember when friends of mine said early in 2008: “I don’t think Obama has a chance”. Well, as they say: “The rest is history.” “
Barry was able to keep his Marxist background undercover in 2008 and it was all Barry worship then, all the time, with white independents gushing over him and telling themselves if they vote for him it will prove to themselves and everyone else that they are not racists (even if Barry and his “reverend” were racists).
Today, Barry is in Jimmy Carter territory and sinking fast.
Though I agree that the welfare crowd and illegals will be out in great numbers, and Barry is amassing $1 billion in legal/illegal campaign cash, he is so toxic that the main question will be how many Dim candidates he destroys down-ticket.
That’s exactly it - Cain, Perry, even Gingrich are personable, come across as people you could actually *talk* to.
Michelle Bachmann seems like a robot who only has two settings: Stupid and Nagging
Michele Bachmann is the antithesis of a philandering, progressive, money grubbing, Freddie-Mac consultant. I surprised you have to ask.
>> The thing is, I dont just want Obama defeated, I want him destroyed and humiliated. I want this myth that Obama is brilliant shattered into a million pieces, and Gingrich is just the man to do it. >>
Not only Obama humiliated and destroyed, but his whole Occupy Wall street vision destroyed with it!!!! This is exactly why I support Newt as well. This is more important than anything else, a total discrediting of the liberal view of America.
So the reason I want Newt, in spite of his flaws - is that he is clearly the best at doing this and in fact the only one in the field who can. Bachamm and her over the top attacks - if tried against Obama - will totally discredit our side.
Newt’s attacks don’t have to be over the top. He is simply gifted at what has become a very important skill set in our modern political arena. Yes, talking the talk is now more important than walking the walk when it comes to President. Because like it or not, what President’s say is far more important than what they do.
She’d make a good runnIng mate for Gingrich.
>> Michelle Bachmann seems like a robot who only has two settings: Stupid and Nagging >>
And is it just me, or does she attract supporters who are exactly like that too? I know a lot of folks like this from Christian circles - and God bless them they are great folks - but they are humorless, prudish and put a huge premium in falling on their swords in defeat rather than success. Too heavenly minded to be any earthly good, and so on. She and her supporters just remind me of these folks.
Gingrich is done.
He is crashing in every poll and the odds of him getting the nomination are down to 16.6% on Intrade.
Ok, so now youre repeating Rosie ODonnells slander
Everyone needs to be vetted. But, as my wife always says: “Time tells all.” But, it’s all a moot point. She’s toast and will NOT be the GOP nominee. I started out liking her but she has done more to destroy the GOP’s chances in 2012 than anyone. She has beaten, bloodied, and broken almost every candidate for Obozo to finish off in November 2012. She helped drive Pawlenty and Cain from the race and is trying to do the same to Gingrich but she’s in a losing battle. She’s not even in the same league with Newt Gingrich. She’s a “Desperate Housewife”. Five years in the House of Representatives, one of which she has spent running for President instead of doing the job the taxpayers pay her to do, and she thinks she’s ready to be the leader of the Free World? Give me a friggin’ break.
This idiot is Romney ‘s attack dog and nothing more.
She viciously and recklessly tries to trashes any option by Mittens .
She trashed Perry,Cain,and now Newt with such destructive hate because Ronney wants to appear above it all.
She is beyond damaged goods and may lose her seat in congress since we will never give her another fine after trashing if fellow .
She has hurt our chances to defeat the Marxist Muslim in 2012
Well said, extremely well said...
Ref. your Post #35: Totally agree.
A lot of Bachmann envy here.
Probably closet Romney supporters pretending to be for Newt.
Newt knocks everyone else out but Mittens, then walks away and goes back to lobbying.
I wonder how much his “historian consulting fee” will be.
I’m a consultant; civilians don’t know how it works.
“I almost forgot.
He gave me $ .
I think his idea was that I kill you.
But you know, the pity is, when I’m paid...
...I always follow my job through.”
I have to admit, after several months of not really being committal, I’ve finally settled on Newt.
He’s the only one who’s actually been taking the fight to Obama and the Dems.
He’s smart as a whip, and knows how to use it.
He’s had his mistakes - but what candidate hasn’t? For every tubthumper who wants to tell me that Newt sat on a couch with Nancy Pelosi, I can turn right around and tell you something bad about their candidate - including Sarah Palin (even though she’s not a candidate, some still *act* like she is nevertheless).
Something somebody on here the other day pointed out really made sense: it was only *after* Newt was deposed as Speaker that the GOP in Congress started to lose its way. Before that, he was actually doing a good job of keeping Republican congressmen on task. It seems that the overthrow of Newt, far from being because he wasn’t conservative enough, was because he was TOO conservative - and the establishment types didn’t like it.
