Glenn on Bachmann: “She’s exceptional”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn has shown interest in several of the 2012 GOP candidates over the past few months. He’s spoken in favor of Rick Santorum many times, and after an interview with Herman Cain he had praise for the Godfather’s Pizza CEO as well. But there is one candidate Glenn has consistently held in high regard – Michele Bachmann. After speaking with the Congresswoman over the weekend and interviewing her on radio, Glenn again sent quite a bit of praise her way and said that of all the candidates for the GOP nomination, she possessed the qualities he’s looking for in our next President.

Before going into the details of why he trusts Bachmann, Glenn was clear that he was not making an endorsement and would continue to evaluate all the Presidential candidates.

“I know and like many of the candidates for the Republican nomination. I’ve never campaigned for anybody, nor will I. I will never stop calling them as I see them, and I will never endorse a candidate,” Glenn said.

(Of course the mainstream media is still going to take that to be an endorsement, but you know the truth.)

Glenn continued, “I still don’t give my complete trust to anybody. But I will tell you that last night I made a decision on who I would vote for If I were voting for the candidate.”

“It is somebody that I think believes it to the core. I believe understands compassion, somebody that understands God, somebody understands the situation that we’re in.”

“There is somebody I think that is exceptional and truly comes the closest to embodying the spirit of Lincoln or Washington in this field. And I believe that it is Michele Bachmann.”

“We have to trust somebody. That’s not to say that there aren’t good candidates elsewhere. The others, many of them are good, decent men. But this woman is exceptional and I would ask that you would take a look at the character and the true life of Michele Bachmann. I believe she means what she says and says what she means.”

While he is not endorsing her and won’t endorse a candidate, Glenn did say “She’s exceptional.”

    Bachmann may be the very wild card candidate for the 2012 elections indeed; though I have to wonder with the way the admin is still showing the narcissistic behaviour and confidence of Obama what else they have up their sleeve? Are they just that confident or is the overthrow about to come to play faster than we know of — say over Thanksgiving or Christmas?

    I like Michelle Bachman, but not as president. Herman Cain to me is the true conservative leader. He was viciously attacked by the MSM, and the conservative media were quick to abandon him. Herman Cain has the bold ideas and is outside of Washington. Michelle Bachman is still inside Washington and does not have fresh new ideas. I like her as leader in congress. Santorum is a conservative, but he as politician all over him. I am tired of politician. We need a fresh vision. I thought that is what Glenn Beck stood for.  It does me that Glenn Beck has not stood beside his friend, who is a true refounding father….Herman Cain.

    All the GOP candidates have their fair share of knowledge, I think Newt has more than the others , However; Not one of them has the knowledge and leadership as Congressman LTC Allen West.
    If Allen West doesn’t run, we won’t be voting for the GOP, we’ll be voting against Obama ..
    That will do nothing for the moral of this country and give us the same feeling of doom in the end.

    What is great about Michelle Bachman is she works to reasonably sway the person she is speaking to on a subject. She is very skilled and appears to be focused, calm, sure of her position. She appears to use a type of deliberate language to make her points so she comes off well studied, well informed, and well reheased to make her case. It is not as thought she has to read what she thinks. She knows what she thinks therefore she does not have weigh her thoughts as she speaks. She’s done that already.

    While I respect Glenn and feel he, like all of us, has the right to vote his conscience, I could not at this time, in good conscience, vote for any of the GOP candidates — or anyone else for that matter — for President.  Bachmann has yet to prove herself to me.  It is one thing to talk one-on-one with Glenn and convince him, but she needs to convince me and a lot of other potential voters that she is the one who can do it.  Until she manages that, I am left wondering why she is sticking in there for the insults and the difficulties, because it takes a lot more than a thick skin to be the President of this country.

    I am a Romney supporter because he has a strong moral compass and he also has the private sector economic background along with his 4 years as governor but I also could easily vote for Michelle for the reason’s Glenn stated. Michele is bright,articulate,consistent and Michele is certainly not afraid to speak her mind. Michele is definitely not a politician that can be persuaded with Washington perks and money to change her votes. Michelle is a true conservative. Hey the perfect ticket would be Romney/Bachman.

  • Anonymous

    Michelle Bachmann is a great candidate and what comes out of her mouth is honest and intelligent.  I fear, however, that she does not stand a chance.  The Romney push is strong and getting stronger.  Any candidate rising has been shot down with Mr. Cain seeming to last the longest.  Amazing how we have not heard any more from the accusatory bimbos.  The left did their normal Clarence-style dirty work successfully again.  I think the new political ad in New Hampshire by Romney is great and exactly what Michelle said.  Paraphrasing—’we are in it to replace Obama, not trash each other’.  Right now Michelle, Cain and Gingrich are high on my list.  We have to replace the dems—leftist that do not have the country’s well being in mind–only changing the American society to their socialistic liking.

    I don’t think the average American realizes this next election is a life or death event for the country, an end of the road turning point like 1933 in Germany. With this in mind the people are going to have to be passionate about holding the candidates feet to the fire, “demand” answers on positions and get them in writing …… let them know the people are fooling around no longer.

    I find it interesting, and disappointing, that someone who professes such a respect for the Constitution isn’t backing the ONLY candidate who has been totally faithful to the Constitution for the last 30 years, Ron Paul. Ron Paul is the only candidate in the race who will actually uphold his oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution which he has done consistently for decades. No other candidate can make that claim. Very disappointed in Glenn.

    It really comes down to the brainwashed Americans who believe more in glitter than substance. Although Michelle Bachmann could be THE best candidate of the whole bunch, including democrats, she stand very little chance against the powerhouse liberal media, who are destroying her every day. Just listen to what they are doing, including the latest appearance on TV. This is precicely why Washington will continue to operate like they have been for so long now. Just look at what Russians are doing to Obama, they could teach Americans a few lessons, but that finger show will NOT hit the main media and most Americans will keep their heads in the sand. Also, remember what the media did to Sarah Palin, another speaker from her heart and a true patriot. The next American revolution MUST come against Washington, whereby all the bad apples are kicked out, but there is too much money being thrown around to stop that from happening. The same crap will continue even if a republican candidate wins the next election.

    Ron Paul has some good ideas on cutting spending and auditing the Fed, but his position on Israel, Iran and other foreign policy concerns disqualifies him from serious consideration.  I think that he has caused more focus on issues that others would rather ignore so he’s been a positive influence on the process but if we expect to win and get a strong conservative in the WH, we better start rallying behind the true conservatives and Michelle Bachmann is certainly a solid choice in my book.

    Not voting for anyone isn’t really an option.  It is the cowardly way out of your responsibility.  Just make the best decision you can make and vote on trust – and nothing else.

    Bachmann is sticking in there because she wants to serve our country.  A novel desire.  Doesn’t happen very often anymore.

    I have seen a lot of support for Allen West (who is not running) but not as much for Bachmann. Why? Unless I have missed something, they have (West and Bachmann) come down on the same side on issues and voted the same way. Shouldn’t support for West, who is NOT a candidate, then translate to support for Bachmann, who IS?

    The first time I saw Michelle Bachman was in the clip where she says she feels like she’s a “correspondent reporting from behind enemy lines.”  She had me on her side from that moment, and what I’ve seen from her since has only reinforced my belief that she truly “gets it.”

  • Anonymous

    Her foreign policy. She would continue down the same path as the rest of the progressives. She’s great on some of the economic stuff. More so than the rest of the candidates. But we NEED to end these pointless unconstitutional wars (which Bachman won’t do). We NEED to end the federal reserve which is unconstitutional and I don’t believe Bachman would do.

    If Michele Bachmann voted for THE PATRIOT ACT, I cannot support her.

    Do research on The Patriot Act..It might just open your eyes.  If I didn’t
    care so much for America, I wouldn’t bring this up.
    If she voted for this act and didn’t read it than she shouldn’t be a congress-
    womanl.

    We need real people for President.  Unless she rescinds her stand on this
    issue, she will be off my list of candidates.

    Thanks for pointing out about Ron Paul’s foreign policy. Except in his own writing, he’s not had the opportunity to fully explain himself on that score and I think most folks misunderstand it.  He’s not so much against war as that he insists it be Constitutionally declared by Congress.  He would use letters of marque and reprisal rather than “kinetic military actions.”  He doesn’t believe we should neglect our interests abroad, but that we should avoid (especially militaristic) entanglements.  I recommend everyone go to Ron Paul’s Texas Straight Talk and read a bunch of his stuff.  He’s done an excellent and thoughtful job of figuring out how to apply the Constitution, as written, to handle the various problems we have faced in modern times.

    Though distinct, Zionists and Israel have shared enough in common that Bachman and Beck should be concerned when those intentions conflict with the best interests of America. Paul would be a much better choice in this regard.

  • http://twitter.com/JTVolkens Jeremy Volkens

    Do a little fast-forwarding in your brain. What happens when Iran instigates a war with Israel? Do you really think it stays contained? Do you really think its possible in this day and age to completely isolate yourself from sever global conflict when you’re the United States? Without even getting into how our non-involvement would be spun to call us heartless in the face of massive bloodshed and possible genocide, how long do you think it would take until we were dragged into the conflict? Do you really think they Iran only has beef with Israel? Before we were attacked? Remember Pearl Harbor? Remember how Nazism spread throughout Europe while we sat on the sidelines? Remember how it took Japan attacking us to make us realize as the United States, THE Shining City on the Hill, we are UNABLE to do nothing. And don’t fool yourself into thinking this all about one nation vs another nation. This is WAY beyond that. This is truly Good vs Evil. Liberty vs Tyranny. Life vs Death. The ruling class in Iran (and many other places in the region) are clear about their motives. Ron Paul is either breathtakingly ignorant or breathtakingly naive about the true long-term, genocidal motives of Iran, radical Islam, Madisim, the Caliphate and Sharia Law. These people are not messing around. They believe their God DEMANDS it.

    Get ready for some vicious, hateful emails by the Ron Paul people. The most vicious comments, on any website or blog, are from the Paul people. Frankly, that is very sad. We ALL want the best for our beloved nation. …I believe Michele Bachmann is a true Conservative that has a voting record in Congress that proves her devotion to the people and to our Constitution. She was the loudest voice among the candidates that stood STRONG for THE PEOPLE against Obamacare. I was just 1 of the 40,000 to 50,000 people that came to Washington for the Code Red Rally, trying to stand against this takeover! It was a blessing to have her voice at such a crucial time. I believe that Ms Bachmann loves this nation and will do everything in her power as President to protect our Constitution and defend America, as well as create an atmosphere that will allow our nation to prosper again. She will DO NO HARM. God Bless The USA.

    Very disappointing. There’s only one candidate that speaks openly about closing the fed, smaller federal government, more power to the states, wants to cut spending, and follows the constitution no matter where it leads… Ron Paul. He is the closest you will get today to a founding father. He is consistent, does not change his views for anyone, and wants to focus on America until we are stable again. I may be wrong here, but I believe the only reason you (Glenn) do not side with this man is his feeling on Israel, that he would like to see them stand up on their own two feet. This is not a bad thing. They have an air force, a very strong ground force, and nuclear capability, which country around them can say that? And who is America to embargo ANY nation from what is their God given right, that is the same for any man, Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We must stop global patrolling, maintain our allies by defending them if agreed by congress, and stop giving people around the world reasons to hate us. They don’t see the money we donate around the world, they do see the news where we bomb the hell out of a country. 
     
    Reasons why Bachman is not the right choice….

    “Bachmann proposes implementing a tax system that would encourage “family formation.”  The context of Bachmann’s remarks make it clear that she would like to either give tax credits, or lower tax rates to people who are married as opposed to those who are single. 

    Bachmann’s proposal stands in stark contrast to the small government tone of the rest of her speech.  Just minutes later in the speech Bachmann states that she would scrap the current tax code because it is too complicated.  Then Bachmann would presumably implement a system in which the government tried to encourage “family formation” through the tax code.”

    “Iraq Troop Withdrawal (HR 2237):

    Bachmann voted ‘no’ to withdraw soldiers from Iraq in spite the fact that the Constitution requires that Congress declare war (not merely to give assent to Presidential prerogative) and the Iraq war was not declared by Congress.
     
    Iran Military Operations (HR 1585):

    Speaking of the imperial presidency, during debate over the 2008 defense authorization bill, an amendment was offered that would have required then-President Bush to get specific congressional authorization (i.e., he could not simply cite the AUMF as a Caesarian grant of power) before engaging in military ops against Iran. Again, the “Constitutional Conservative” ignored the Constitution and voted against this very common sense amendment.

    Warrantless Surveillance (S 1927)

    This bill – the so-called “Protect America Act” — retroactively legalized George Bush’s massive violations of the FISA act (as it was written at that time) where Bush had illegally ordered en masse surveillance of the electronic communications of US persons without either a FISA court warrant, or any pretense of specificity or probably cause as required by the 4th amendment.

    Apparently the 4th amendment means very little to our “Constitutional Conservative” when the “war on terror” is thought to require a surveillance state.

    Peru “Free Trade” Agreement (HR 3688):

    As with all so-called free trade agreements in the modern era, this one also set up a supra-national enforcement body with the presumed power to supersede state and federal laws. It is for this reason that even a staunch free-trader like Ron Paul refuses to support these type of ‘free trade’ agreements. But for some reason, Michele “Constitutional Conservative” Bachmann is not troubled by these supra-national bodies, in spite of the fact that Article VI states that the Constitution is “the supreme law of the land” and makes no exceptions for its
    subordination to supra-national trade enforcement bodies.

    Head Start expansion (HR 1429)

    Frankly, I was shocked to see this one. Here we have our Constitutional Conservative voting to expand federal funding for the education of pre-K kids and for more social service involvement in the lives of the targeted families (to help the kids, of course). Given Ms. Bachmann’s background as an activist with a rather excellent education organization in MN that was very concerned over the federalization of education (i.e., the Maple River Education Coalition), I never expected to see her vote in this way.

    Supplemental Appropriation (HR 2346)

    More silly “emergency” funding, this time for unconstitutional wars, foreign aid, and the alleged flu pandemic – all of which is not authorized areas of expenditure by the Constitution. Yet Bachmann voted for this bill.

    Foreign Aid (HR 3081)

    Is there a form of unconstitutional spending more easily recognized and eliminated than foreign aid? How could a Constitutional Conservative vote for foreign aid? Clearly she holds some other authority higher than her oath of office.

    Patriot Act extension (HR 3961)

    When it comes to search and surveillance powers, a true Constitutional Conservative instantly knows that the 4th amendment, with its standards of probably cause and specificity, determine what type of legislation is allowed.
    The Patriot Act clearly violates these constitutional qualifications, yet Bachmann voted to extend certain provisions of it. A fickle constitutionalist indeed.

    BTW, during the renewal fight of earlier this year, she voted again in the same way.

    Michele Bachmann is many things: A gifted – if not crafty — politician, a committed mother concerned enough about the proper upbringing of her children to home and privately school them, an obviously committed Christian, and so on.  But, as should be clear from her voting record, a “constitutional conservative” she is not.”This is just some of the reasons i could find in 5 minutes, read them, and copy and paste them. More digging needed?RON PAUL is the ONLY strict constitutionalist. Oh, what’s MB view of the fed?  …exactly.

    Thank You Glenn Beck,

    I have had great faith in the two momma grizzlies from jump street.  I like Ms. Bachmann’s candid views of what ails this nation . . . namely the Kleptocrats and their Klepto-In-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama.  Of all the candidates I believe she and Herman Cain are the only two true conservatives.  I like Newt, but he schmoozes with the enemy to much to my liking, though it won’t hurt my feelings if he gets the nomination.  I base my evaluation of the GOP candidates from a Christian point of view.  Ms. Bachman and Ms. Cain seem to fulfill the scriptural modus operand.

    You also have to consider who Fallon is as well.  He is a far left entertainment mongrel that will use conservatives as carpet in order to get a laugh.  Their base nature is in their psychological DNA.  Like the rest of fallen humanity, he will have to answer to a higher authrority at the end of his gig here on Earth.  The results don’t look promising.

    I like Ron Paul politically… but he is off his rocker when it comes to the whole abortion issue.  The guy supports personhood and thinks a fertilized egg should have rights.  In my opinion, this is insane and Government should not interfere with the decisions between a woman, her health and her doctor.  (I’m a Catholic conservative, but come on people, Government has no right to interfere here.  If a woman is raped and doesn’t want to bring a child into this world, then it’s her decision.  Not mine, not yours, and certainly not our government’s!)

    Ron Paul is my choice if I HAD to choose a candidate, however he believes in NO minimum wage which is utterly ridiculous.  He also believes that if you don’t buy healthcare, you should just die…obviously it’s a bit more complex than that, but thats what it ultimately means.  Sorry, but those policies are what’s holding him back from being an easy nomination for President.  Someone needs to get this clown Obama out of the white house …right away!!

    I love Michelle Bachmann, and have from the start. However, she is no Maggie Thatcher. Too bad!  The Democrats and  Rino Republicans would eat her up. There is a place for her and she is already in it; the Senate. As to Ron Paul, his stand on the rest of the world is a good one, but he fails to follow up with what he would do if the rest of the world didn’t behave. If you are going to leave everyone alone, then you better have a firm notion as to what you intend to do if Iran gets a nuclear weapon and then uses, or allows one to be used.

    i am not American, and like Glenn, I beleive in Michelle Bachmann………she has never waiver on her stance no matter how her results are…………she to me is also as close to a true constitutional republic candidate.  As American is suppose to be governed under a Constitutional Republic, Michelle Bachmann to me, is the real deal.

    The actions of the Fallon band are the resoult of progressive education in all parts of American discourse.  Our nation no longer has any class, any leadership for the greater good, and most of all, no respect for our fellow human beings.  What does that tell you?  Do you even care?  If the present leadership of this nation is not drastically changed in the next election, we will have lost our legacy because of laziness.  Too lazy to keep up with the actions of the government and too lazy to be aware of who is involved.  With all the emphasis placed in education for decades, there is positively NO excuse for so many dumb decisions!!

    I have consistently believed Bachmann to be a true conservative candidate. I know she is solid in her goals to return America back to the people and restore it’s  honor among the nations.  But because she is a religious person she doesn’t get any positive media coverage and because she’s a conservative WOMAN, she will never get elected. Unfortunately, our media and our nation’s male superiority mentality, she could not beat Obama, even though he is the worst of any candidate (and that’s being ultra nice to Obama).  I would be thrilled to see her jump ahead in the polls but until our nation experiences the Third Awakening, I don’t see it happening. She is too Godly for most of the populous and that is very sad!

    So you like Ron Paul, how curious! Could it be that he would be the [spoiler] and get Obama elected? How you have changed the way you post strtlk?

    Lets see……….. I’m sure I have your antisemitism right. What happened, did you get booted or just humiliated?

    “Of course you would bring up the holocaust, just like Mr. Beck does in his unyielding support for Israel. Keep bringing it up as a means to bring your point home through fear. Hitler didn’t just kill Jews, yet jews get the most sympathy and most coverage, but what about the Polish and French?. I’m not denying the holocaust like some other wackjobs, however I am saying that card is getting old as it is brought up in just about every movie, and in every issue according to Beck. If you criticize israel, your automatically and anti-semite. Most of our problems is from our support for israel, most of our wars are because of israel, our filthy hollywood is made up of mostly jewish directors, jewish funded films, and mostly jewish actors. Timothy Geitner, Ben Bernacke, Feinsten, Ruppert Murdock……all jews, all in charge of the US and their financial affairs. Most of you just refuse to see the truth because you follow this clown Mr. Beck. Do some research and see for yourself. No hate here, just facts.”*

    I also agree that I supported Michelle Bachmann from the beginning.  We need an exceptional individual, not just the same old Politician who have been Self-Serving and have acted with NO Respect of the People.  Obama, who is a Marxist,HATES the United States and WE the People. We need an HONEST true American to take back our Constitutional Republic from the Socialist Democrats and Marxist Obama.

    I humbly PRAY the Michelle Bachmann gets the Republican Bid and Overwhelmingly Crushes Obama in the 2012 Election. 

     In addition, I PRAY that after Obama is Beaten, our Government Immediately uncovers Obama’s past and uncovers the Socialist Democrat’s past and anything they did against the United States, they must be thoroughly prosecuted landing them in prison where they belong.  Amen!

    Michele Bachmann has voted to EXTEND the PATRIOT ACT!  I have posted it on the the Glenn Beck interview of MB yesterday with a link.  The link shows Judge Napolitano interviewing her on Freedom Watch and questioning her on her decision to vote for the extension.  She even states that she would have to see what is in the Act for another possible extension when it comes up again for renewal!  A candidate that states she is for limited constitutional government must be true to this belief 100%.  The Patriot Act is one of the worst offenders of trampling on your constitutional rights int the last 100 years.  If you don’t believe me, please do your own research.

    BTW, Ron Paul is the only candidate who truly stands for the Constitution 100% of the time.

    Just when I think I could not respect Beck to any higher degree, he comes out and takes the whole in-your-face-corrupt-GOP-Establishment-thing to the next level and endorses the closest thing we have to Ronald Reagan: Michele “Joan of Arc” Bachmann, the worst nightmare status quo corrupt government has ever faced.

    I noted, Glenn, that you said you would vote “if I were a Republican”.  Why is it that voters are LIMITED because of their declared or undeclared political affiliation?  Is this country a free country or not?  Why is it that a Democrat cannot vote for a Republican unless he switches parties?

    I have nothing against parties, but they seem to be run like unions:  You cannot work (vote) unless you join, and that, my friends, is NOT democracy, that is cronyism at the very core, and needs to be dismantled.  Independent voters are always wooed by the two parties, and that’s fine, but it sounds very much like you stated at about 3:25 in your statement that you couldn’t vote in the Primary “because I’m not a Republican”. 

    This means, as an American, you have NO SAY in who gets nominated to represent you, does it not?

    I can agree with you on the one point..that government should not interfere between a woman, her health, and her doctor. However, I have had three long-standing views of “fertilized eggs”. Please allow me to explain.In this country there is a law prohibiting destruction or even harm to an eagle or its eggs. The penalty for doing so is a $5000 fine and 5 years imprisonment. My question is this; If we impose such harsh punishment for the harm or destruction of an eagle’s egg…because we know that inside that egg grows a baby eagle, then how can we not also know the same about a human egg, or fetus? Secondly, we know that only living things grow, right? So that tells us that since the human ‘fertilized egg’ is growing, then it is living. My last point is that we adults, as fully developed, birthed and educated ‘fertilized eggs’, we know that dogs’ ‘fertilized eggs’ produce only baby dogs; likewise cats’ ‘fertilized eggs’ produce only baby cats; horses’ ‘fertilized eggs’ produce only baby horses; and so on and so on. Given these three points of understanding, it would seem then there is only one logical conclusion…the laws of our government are obligated to “interfere” on behalf of the living, growing, ‘fertilized egg’ of a human because, like all other ‘fertilized eggs’, a human egg can only produce a baby human. One last thought that I have is in the form of a question; why all the fuss about the legality and rights of unborn baby humans when there is such an EASY fix to end ALL the debate? It’s as simple as birth control, which prevents impregnation in the first place. If fully grown, mature humans are grown and mature enough to be producing ‘fertilized eggs’, then should we not also be mature enough to simply swallow a pill or better exercise our “rights” to  choose some other birth prevention/control before a baby human egg can be produce?. If not, then there is another human life now created simply for lack of use of birth control, and must be considered when discussing abortion of the growing baby human inside a womans’ body.

    Laurie, if Glenn,Hanity or Greta et al would do an interview with Herman ,reviewing both his 2010 and 2005 books everyone would get the real background on this amiable, highly capable but humble gentleman. And,they should throw in the great–as usual–interview Greta did w/Mrs Cain along with family members after the so called scandal. Greta got very personal, and Mrs Cain didn’t bat an eye talikng about Herman’s character staring with his flirting ways to get his first date with her.
    Likewise, former Okie Congreesman JC Watt’s 2003 book is listed right along w/Herman’s at Amazon. I’ve finished  reading/studying all three. Cain went to JC for advise when Cain was in the Georgia Senate race. Here’s the exerpt from Cain’s 2005 book (pg12):
    Cain wrote, “…I  asked Congressman Watts about the culture of Congress, whatI I  could expect if elected, and the nature of leadership in the U.S. House & Senate”
    Watts answered: ” About 15% of the members are interested in aggressive policy change, in setting and leading an agenda,  and in taking their policy agenda to the people. Then you have 15% who lead some of the committees,  try to protect their sandbox, send some pork back home and get reelected.”:
    Cain asked: “Well, what about the other 70%.”
    Watts answered: ” The remainingg 70% are just happy to be there.”
    Well, for those who say Cain doesn’t understand Washington’s ways, I suggest this excerpt is just a small bit to learn about Herman’s knowledge in preparation for the Presidency. For sure, Herman is not ,never has been, a quitter on pursuing the job he is qualified for and wants, AND successfully manages..
    Laurie, like Watts , Cain has proven in his life to be a “think-out-of-the box” leader. “Politician”, no. “Visionary”, yes, especially as he details his Presidency in final chapter of 2010 book.  Starting with “no more than one Presidential Ball, and and his “first 90 days in the Whitehouse.”

    Kid, the left is pushing Ron Paul because of his followers who are fanatics and will try and convince Ron Paul to became a third party candidate. The “Ross Perot” maneuver that got Clinton elected.

    It’s that simple. Obama only won by 53% of the vote. Most elections are just as tight. Obama has lost a large percent of the Hispanics, 10% of the Black Vote and is losing the Independents left and right.

    Splitting the vote and dividing the country is Obama’s strategy. Just listen to his speeches if they don’t make you sick, it’s just that message over and over.

    He can’t run on his record or the economy. Taking 5 seats in the Senate is as important as winning the Presidency. Either one will neuter this Marxist idiot.

    She makes a lot of sense, but I’m just not sure how capable she is of running the Executive Branch of government.  We need someone with actual large-scale leadership skills and organizational savvy, both of which Pres. Obama is completely bereft.  In fact, Obama is just a spokesperson for himself, and that’s his full-time job, the only one he can handle. He still has no clue how to actually be an effective president.  I would hire him as a spokesperson in a second, but wouldn’t dare let him actually run anything.  Without his wife’s father, he’d still be an obscure “community organizer” from Kenya.  (Wait, did I say Kenya?

    I don’t know, Michelle Bachman has sort of flip flopped several times on certain subjects and depending who the audience was, the answers each time were different. The thing is, she is only human, and the interviewer had ulterior motives in the “gotcha” moments.  The problem is, a person can have a core conviction and if a personal incident happens the core conviction goes out the window. She and her husband have a clinic that among other things treats homosexuality as a treatable illness.  They don’t force homosexuals to come in for treatment. Somehow, an interviewer made a reference to the clinic and she kind of blown off the answer quickly by saying it was her husbands clinic.

    The 2012 candidates all have good talking points, but Bachman and Cain each have made reference to the number one problem of our economic mess is “Government doesn’t create jobs, and should not interfere with private businesses.” That and repeal ObamaCare.

    I’ve watched and listened to your interview with Imus today, and I will tell you that Obama will be a ONE-Term president. YES, Obama has and will unleash all his Chicago ‘thugs’, drum-up all kinds of lies and innuendos, just like what he’s done during his previous election campaigns in Chicago politics and the Senate. His strongman for this endeavor is David Axelrod, and of course all the operatives at SEIU, the supposedly defunct ACORN and his ‘Generals’ in the Labor Unions, will make the presidential election the “dirtiest” election in our history. The riots in Wisconsin and now the OWS riots is just a pre-cursor of what’s ahead. However, the Americans have awakened, the fact that under Obama’s administration, the country has suffered a lot of hardships, from unemployment, foreclosures, riots and chaos, not only locally, but world-wide. Furthermore, our National Debt has soared to a staggering amount, that many economists are predicting  the economic demise of our once great country. Yes, unless Obama is not stopped or prevented from cheating or continue to create crisis after crisis, he’ll be gone after 2012 !
    My predicament is, which GOP presidential aspirant is really the best candidate to be the next president of our country. Everyone seems to have a baggage that the Obama can easily use to discredit them, especially with the mainstream media helping in his reelection campaign. Many of them have, sometime or another, deviated from the Conservative ideals or had personal problems. Then, you might be right that Michelle Bachmann is a good choice, as to her character and conviction. But she doesn’t have the ‘fighting voice’ a thunderous voice the likes of Trump and Sarah Palin. I’m still undecided…..!

She wants federal mandated intelligent design in the science class when it is so clearly not a science! She hates all the gays and thinks homosexuality is synonomous with polyagmy. Her foreign policy stinks, it’s just a retread of Bush’s foreign policy. Meanwhile, she has taken plenty of federal hand outs for her home. She has nothing on Washington or Lincoln, such as she lacks brains, a spine or even common sense.

     The real reason they don’t want to abandon Afghanistan is, because of the Exxon Mobile’s pipeline pumping oil from Afghanistan.

The people of Afghanistan use horses and donkeys, and pick up trucks, as their main weapons, while military contractor’s keep building new weapon system’s for themselves and get richer, America goes down hill in debt. China owns 11% of the national debt, and Japan owns 10% and they are over 200% over GDP in national debt.

    candidate, the lame stream media would love to exploite.  If Allen West doesn’t intend to run, then

    we only have those who have already declared themselves.   In any case, whoever runs will always

    make it a vote against B.O.   The feeling of doom will be if B.O. gets reelected.

    I personally like Ms. Bachmann, but to be realistic I don’t think that she can debate Omama.  We need someone who can stand up to Obama and challenge him on all of his records. (That of course won’t be hard to do)!!   She is truly a Christian lady and I like her but she needs to get tougher than what she is and like I said I don’t really think she can debate Omama…  Ron Paul does not support Israel and if we are going to be blessed right along with Israel we have to stand with her.  The bible is plain and simple we win in the end.  Praise God!!!

    Seems to be going just as you stated, Kid.  Whoever is up in the polls is the one the ”lamers” (easier

    and faster to type than the whole lame stream media thing) have and are attacking.  Does that mean

    those are the ones they are afraid of or merely because they might be a likely candidate?

    As I understand it, Kid, it depends on how the various states set up their elections.  Some have open

    primaries where one can vote in any party, but the general election is party affiliated   Some states

    will let the person vote at all times only in the party to which they belong.  Don’t know if there are any

    states which have open elections in everything, disregarding party affiliation.

    I think a candidate that wants our vote, could say, USA property is more valuable than any in all the world.  If president I would declare that all US property be valued at it highest – when the housing market started to decline.  All property taxes would after 1 year return to their highest rate.  People would again feel the prosperity.  In one stroke the country would be the best again.

    Michelle Bachman is exceptional, but more and more is becoming a politician with a strong tendency to slant the truth.  Newt Gringrich has shown himself to be more in tune with the heart of the issues than any other candidate. He has a grasp on the realities of the world we live in. Imagine this. A nuke is heading into mainland USA. Is it on a plane, a boat, a mule, or strapped to the back of a child? All real scenarios. I’m sorry. He is head and shoulders smarter than the other candidates only lacking the will to make himself comprehensible to an average joe.

    In response to what this video is about, i am in whole hearted agreement that the best declared candidate so far is Michelle Bachmann.  And from the revealed emails it is clear that the news media are actively collaborating against her to supress her candidacy.  If i were her, i would file a 1 trillion dollar lawsuit against cbs for what they are doing as revealed in those emails.  and i would threaten all the other BS news media entities that they too would be on the end of just such a law suit if they in any way acted in the same manner.  It is time for the american people to take back control of a runaway press, which is no longer independent, but is now an arm of the DNC.

    As for Ron Paul, forget it!  I’m not interested in bringing about WWIII.

    Some of the others i could vote for, but two i absolutely could not vote for are RINO Romney, and even more RINO huntsman.

    this makes no sense… Ron Paul is your choice, but you don’t agree on a free market…  It makes me laugh when people are for free markets on everything but Healthcare and Education and those are the two things that are the worse off.  Minimum Wage keeps less experienced and educated people out of the work force because they’re not worth that minimum amount yet and unless an entrepreneur is going to give charity to this person and overpay, these people won’t get jobs.

    I’m with you brother, she’s been my pick since she made her announcement.  She has the will to do what is constitutional and bring the country back to where our founders intended.  To me, she is the only one that has said the right things, consistantly, and you cannot do that if it isn’t in your heart.  Sarah Palin would be my next choice, but I am afraid she would polarize the vote.  It’s a shame there are so many that have been influenced by the media, that is what is hurting both Michelle and Sarah, and our country, the corrupt propaganda from the media.

    Ron Pauls foreign policy is to live and let die.  He would allow Iran to develope nuclear weapons and turn a blind eye when they vaporize Israel.  He said tonight, in the debates; “We should just mind our own business.”  “Israel can take care of themselves, they have 2 to 300 nuclear warheads, they don’t need our help, we should just get out of their way.”
    That simplistic and naive attitude will result in a World War and the whole middle east would be a smoking crater, that’s quite a policy your man has there.

    I presume you mean the modern state of Israel. The Christian has already received every spiritual blessing in Christ (Eph. 1:3). This is because Jesus is the king of Israel who has fulfilled all prophecies in his death and resurrection (Luke 24; 2 Cor. 1:20). Our home is the heavenly Jerusalem. If a person needs to stand with Israel to be blessed not only will it shift attention from Christ but lead to wrong political decisions.

    In a recent Harris Poll, Paul beats Obama 51-49 and the latest Public Policy Poll has him beating Obama 48-39 among independents. Dr Paul is more attractive across more groups than any other Republican candidate. He is attracting more people to limited government conservatism than anyone else.

    I’ve been impressed with Michelle Bachman from the beginning.  At this point though, it doesn’t look like she’s able to garner enough support to pull ahead in the polls.  Although, myself, I don’t put much stock in polls.  Several comment here that they support Ron Paul.  This is Paul’s 3rd run for President.  He clutters the field as far as I’m concerned.  When he said we should have conversations with Iran, befriend it, that was enough insanity for me.  You don’t befriend nor is there a way to work with insane leaders.  The reality is, we need to unite at some point with one candidate, and get Obama out of office.  This isn’t a sports game.

    I’ve been a fan of her’s since first seeing/hearing her. there’s nothing about her that has done anything to decrease my admiration for her, I’d love to see her become the first to be elected from the house to potus in over 130 years, first female potus, and 1st “TEA party”  endorsed, but the realist in me says she’d be vilified somehow, even though her biggest mistake thus far was blowing elvis’ birthday (not a biggie to me). would love to see her as the vp choice, and then potus in 8 years. i know she’d wipe the floor with gaffe a second biden in debates. i doubt i’ll even vote in the primary as nj moving back to june again pretty much assures irrelevence again. obviously i’ll be voting for change from this regime, whoever it is, and praying everyday that there is no 3rd party challenge from the right, one from the left would be my wildest dreams come true. where’s ralph nader when we need him, or even dennis kuchinich or van jones, jessie jackson sr or jr, or even a flea party (or is it lice?) candidate, haha

    You may think so, Marc K, but Ron Paul is also a head-in-the-sand isolationist, who doesn’t see a problem with Iran going nuclear. Still think he’s the best choice? I wouldn’t vote for him, and as I see it, he’s only splitting off important conservative votes. Anyone who votes for him is throwing their vote away, as the majority of voters do not take him seriously.

    I honestly have a real problem with Michele Bauchman and I use to admire her. She is the teaparty queen; yet here in Missouri the teapartys across the state were endorsing Chuck Purgason for Senate; yet dispute all the calls that were made to her office she went against the will of the teaparty and endorsed Roy Blunt!!! It left many of us asking…A typical political favor?? A typical politician? She let many people down here in Missouri. Not only that when she was scheduled to have a dinner meeting with Roy Blunt in St. Louis; the teaparty was waiting for her to confront her as to why she ignored us… and  she was a no show!!!! No explanation was ever given for why she went against the teaparty!!! Look it up on the internet; we in Missouri witnessed it first hand. We do not need anymore slick talkers and politicians who scratch each others back. I will admit she comes across with good intentions but I could never vote for her at this point.

    I have talked with many Ron Paulers and I have found about 50% are anti-semites…they love Paul’s foreign policy to live and let die…namely, Israel. Many will not admit it unless you ask naive questions about Paul’s foreign policy, then eventually they will say we don’t need to get involved with Israel. Just as Ron Paul said in the debate, “We should just get out of their way, and mind our own business.” Anti-semites love that attitude.

    Ron Paul is too extreme for the Tea Party.  Legalize all drugs, leave the states to uphold the immigration laws, and a live and let die foreign policy.

Besides I feel he meets all  of the criteria Glenn uses for selecting Bachmann.

    What a pity the candidates don’t concentrate on reminding the public about the disasters Obama has incurred and how they could be rectified rather than trying to pull each other apart is beyond me.
    People have short memories and Obama’s deliberate, it now seems , efforts to destroy the U.S. should be their centre of attention.
    A president who refuses to protect his country’s boundries e.g. Arizona and Texas is appalling but the list is endless.
    The latest is his refusal to purchase Canada’s bountiful oil which would require a pipe line being built from Canada  which would provide thousands of jobs.
    It makes one wonder though that a society who would vote a man in with his history of non achievements will ever wake up.

    I can see it someday.  A best seller: a post modern historian describing the wisdom, intellect and leadership abilities of Michelle Bachmann to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. You’re right; the author is Glenn Beck. What exactly has Michelle Bachmann done in her career to warrant such praise? She spent as much time in front of Fox News cameras and running for President  as she has on the floor of the House. What piece of legislation has she authored that would give any of us an inkling as to what she understands to be necessary role of government (either subtracting or adding)? Populist wave riding (small waves statitically speaking) is not a criteria for leadership. Abolish the EPA, DOE and Dept. of Education–not exactly new or unique positions this year ( not to mention that all of those staking a claim to this position know it will not happen; and for those of you living near any major city; you might want to consider what your air and water will look like if you take out the EPA). Foreign policy qualifications?  Ok, still looking for some or at least a position of substance on anything here. She would be even more inept at foreign policy than Obama. We know she is opposed to gay marraige and abortion, so those are two clearly defined positions. For being consistent on these issues, she is to be commended for being clear about her position irrespective of your view on the merits. She has a long string of factual misstatements that she does not retract, even after being informed by her own staff that she was wrong. Stream of conscious thought is ok for  people who blog ( myself included). I do not need my President to have it as her modus operandi. Tax repeal, encourage jobs, heard it all before. She has no clear cut or detailed economic plan.

    Finally, as a practical matter, except for her supporters, does anyone else actually believe she can beat President Obama? The liberal media is not her problem; that is counterintuitive. If the media is in Obama’s pocket, then why do they not want the Republicans to nominate the least electable person, so that Obama looks like Lincoln? Bachmann and cranky old Ron Paul would be their dream candidates. Michele Bachmann lacks the depth to capture the vote of independent voters and disaffected Democrats that will be necessary to vote out Obama. And Obama needs to be voted out.

    I don’t distrust any of the GOP candidates and I think it’s a shame that Glenn feels the need to lead us around by our noses.  I don’t really care who Glenn trusts the most since he has immediately written off some of the candidates and speaks of them only in dismissive terms.  He has been remarkably closed-minded concerning the candidates and I feel picked his favorite(s) early on and immediately dismissed the others. Keep on thinking we need you to make up our minds, Glenn, I am not sure I even trust your judgment anymore. Your fame has given you a God complex and you need to come back down to earth where the rest of us reside.  Perhaps a little humility needs to come your way right about now. It seems every week Glenn gets preachier and preachier.  I used to love the irreverent humor and witty insight, now he just seems like a Nun whacking our knuckles when we get out of line and dare to disagree with him.

    I admire her willingness to serve, but it takes more than that to make me think she has what it takes to be President, and as of yet, I just don’t see it any of them.  However, there is a long way to go.  She may surprise me.

    Glenn,
     
    I am 22 years old, and I am extremely worried about the future of liberty in America, and I’m terrified of the idea of another four years under ANY careless president. I pay attention to the government, I’ve paid attention to what’s going on. I’m a self employed, 22 year old, white woman. I was home schooled from 1st grade through to my high school graduation, and I went to a vocational college to become a certified nurses assistant. I want a president, a government, who isn’t going to punish me, for working hard.
    I have watched and listened to you for a while Glenn, I’ve been very busy working with my business, and I also work as a youth leader at the church, and haven’t caught you on the radio or had time to check your website. After watching one of the debates last night on CNN, I wanted to know who you were supporting.  I have found myself to line up mostly with Ron Paul, And no, I’m not just one of “those” young people, a “Ronbot” and I’m not a “9/11 truth-er”, And I am certainly not an anti-Semite, and I believe that America should support Israel. I would really like to know why you wouldn’t vote for Ron Paul.

    Why to vote for Ron Paul. A true Patriot, Constitutionalist, and a founding fathers’ best friend for the 21st century.

    * A pro-energy candidate – Remove restrictions on drilling, repeal the federal tax on gasoline, lift government roadblocks, eliminate the ineffective EPA, make tax credits available for the purchase and production of alternative fuel technologies, etc.
    * Common sense immigration reforms – Enforce border security, no amnesty, abolish the welfare state, end birthright citizenship, protect lawful immigrants, etc.
    * Keep more of your money – The repeal of the 16th amendment, implementation of flat or fair tax, eliminating taxes on tips, etc.
    * End the Fed
    * A pro-America foreign policy – Secure our borders, avoid long and expensive land wars, eliminate the Patriot Act, end US nation building, follow the Constitution before war is waged, only send our military into conflict with a clear mission and all the tools they need to complete the job and then bring them home, etc.

    Above is just some of what Ron Paul stands for. Please take the time to view his website, his stance on the issues, and his “Plan to Restore America” below.

    So must we kill Iran since they are suicidal anyway?  How are you going to prevent Iran from getting nukes?  Besides, how could Iran ever vaporize Israel?  You sound scared and insane.

    The only candidate who is “exceptional” is clearly the defender of liberty and the constitution, Ron Paul.  The other candidates on the stage are bloodthirsty chicken-hawks.  Vote for peace Ron Paul 2012.

    If Ron Paul got elected, we throw a flippin welcome matt to ALL of our enemies and say “Here we are! Come and blow us up!” Get a grip on reality… There’s a saying, “Kill the snake in the parking lot before it comes into your house.”

    Whether it be legalizing Dope or Non-support for our ONLY diplomatic ally in the MIddle East, or his RIDICULOUS notion that we should barely defend ourselves Ron Paul is a lunatic and his MISREPRESENTED the Constitution… NOT follow it! As spoken by multiple candiates, “States have NO right to do wrong.” Ron Paul does not believe that.

    “Go kill Iran?” Is that what your brilliant little pea brain deduced from my comments? I deal in reality. When you put down the pipe and face the facts, you’ll be amazed at what you can see.
    Like, Beck, I only take these people at their own words and actions. I believe them when they say they want to “wipe Israel off of the face of the earth”. Do you even have a clue as to the damage that one or, two nukes, could do to Israel? And then…just imagine the retalition that will come from other Muslim states when Israel launches ten more nukes into Iran. Do you think the world will just ignore these actions?
    It is better to be quiet and let them think you are ignorant, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    In reply to “Rothbardian” concerning my earlier comment about Ron Paul thinking that it was ok to let Iran go nuclear, and his remark concerining his opinion of my morals or the lack of, “people do live in Iran, ya know”. Does the word “duh” mean anything to you? I think it applies here. I was neither suggesting that people don’t “live in Iran” or that it was ok for Iran to go nuclear, exactly the opposite, although my concern is less for a nation of fanatical jihadists who dance in the streets passing out candy after they see planes flying into buildings as it was for our own nation, in which quite a few people also live “ya know”. My point was, (if you’d put down the crack pipe you might have been lucid enough to realize this) that we don’t need someone for President who is going to make the Iranians or anyone else feel just that much more confident about building nuclear weapons. Now, if I may make a suggestion or two. First of all, before you make snarky little comments disparaging mine, or anyone else’s morals, motivation or intellect, be sure you know what the other person is actually saying, which you obviously did not here. Second, if you are going to make such a remark next time, be man, or woman enough not to remove the option for me to reply to you. Finally, I have a question I would like to ask you; which do you think would be the more likely to make Iran, or anyone else think twice about hitting that red button? Another appeaser (which it seems likely we would get if Paul were to be elected, not that he stands a snowball’s chance in hell) or someone who will let it be known that the US will do whatever is necessary to defend our soil, and our lives, both here and abroad. We’ve already seen what just 4 years of having a sissy in the White House who bows to the Arabs has done, I myself don’t care to see anymore of it. We don’t need another liberal or an ersatz conservative putting our soldiers or citizens in harm’s way by giving the terrorists more encouragement.

    You were obviously too busy trying to insult my intelligence that you forgot to answer any of my questions. How are you going to prevent Iran from getting a nuke? I deal in reality as well – I am well aware what Iran says about Israel, but that doesn’t give us the right to control them. Are you going to put sanctions on Iran? Thats inhumane, people live there. You should take your own advice and be quiet.

    What makes you think I wasn’t going to vote Republican? Don’t assume things, because it makes you look stupid. I will vote Republican if the candidate nominated isn’t a closet replica of Obama.

    Besides, even if I wasn’t going to vote Republican, am I not allowed to have an opinion on the candidates? Please, think before you type something so ignorant next time.

    Because you’re not. I’ve read your crap and if you are trying to convince me that you were then you’re an idiot.

    What is your problem? You can’t have a normal discussion without throwing out insults nonstop. Get back to me when you think about the concepts of liberty and the free market. Life isn’t all about whether or not who is going to vote Republican…I could not care less about Republicans. My point is that Romney will not be much different than Obama, in the same way Obama has not been much different than Bush.

    Go ahead and respond with random insults and put downs, but I will still stand for the principles of the free market and peace long after you are done.

    I was right, you’re a Ron Paul fanatic. Let me refresh you with your reply to my comment:

    ” Don’t assume things, because it makes you look stupid.”

    “Please, think before you type something so ignorant next time.”

    Take your crap somewhere else, hypocrite. You’re first reply to me was not the makings of a normal discussion.
    I replied in kind.

    You first implied that my original comment was irrelevant. This is insulting because it means that I do not matter. Therefore, you were the first one to put an end to a rational discussion. Isn’t it reasonable that I would try to defend myself? I never said you were ignorant or stupid, I said that what you type can make it seem that way. You, however, called me an “idiot”, “hypocrite”, and told me to “buzz off” and “stay stupid” twice. Not quite a proportionate response.

    Being a Ron Paul fanatic is not something I should try and deny. I won’t deny it, but I will encourage you to read about some of the philosophy I believe in. A good start is mises.org, or lewrockwell.com. I don’t really expect you to do it, but perhaps someone else will read this. While I follow Glenn a lot and have for several years because he is a good guy and interesting, I disagree with him on some points.

  • SoThere

    I didn’t imply anything Roth, I outright said that the opinion you made was irrelevant. If you’re going to try and defend your comment about Romney being a fascist then give it a go. You want to insult me with your rhetoric have at it.

    You’re the second Ron Paul fanatic to attack me with this veiled phony information that I’m sure is based in fact in your mind.

    The last Ron Paul follower tried to convince me that everyone who didn’t follow Ron Paul was a follower of Satan.

    I knew who you were when you first replied to me though you didn’t see fit to come out and say what your agenda really was.

    Yes you are a hypocrite because you don’t see the insults you throw at people but whine when they are posted to you in kind. Yes you are an idiot if you think your post was a prelude to a reasonable discussion and yes I called you stupid because you truly are.

    I told you to buzz off because, well, I wish you would buzz off.

    If you think you are going to show favor with me because you followed Glenn Beck, sorry about that, it’s not happening.

    You’re going to be one of the reasons Obama gets re-elected and that’s something that will destroy this country and if you fail to see that because you are so wrapped up in your philosophy and dogma then you are myopic in your view and destructive to the Country and it’s survival.

    If the people decide to give Ron Paul the nomination then I will vote for him but as the bigger picture looms across this land and with it’s survival at stake, I’d vote for Micky Mouse over Obama.

    So, as I’ve said before, buzz off, I’ve seen it all before, it’s called “The Ross Perot maneuver”. Who do you think you’re talking to?

    Stay stupid, you’re good at it.

    I fully agree.  He’s against the patriot act, he wants to overlook problems in the middle east as though it was another planet, and russia and china would love to have him as president, as we (america) wouldn’t last one full term of his.  He thinks we can just bring out the peace pipe with Iran, or with any of our foes, the problem being they just don’t understand us nor we them – a laugh. He keeps associating muslim extremist with the likes of timothy mcveigh.   He looks, talks and acts as he is mentally unstable.  He is simply not electable. His followers follow him as faithfully as the followers of the Jim Jones cult did.   I agree with some of his domestic libertarian policies, that’s all.  Bachmann is a good congresswoman, and unelectable as a president too.  I’m personally for Newt which is in quicksand now due to his remark on illegal immagrants.  I hope he can convince me and others he will not give amnesty to them all.  He could chew obama up in any debate and the most experienced of them all

     In reply to smarternu
    Mr/Mrs Smart, we came a hair distance from nuclear war with the soviet union but we discovered their nukes in Cuba and forced them to remove them.  What would Paul have done, say they deserve them there because we had nukes in europe? If it were not for the deterent of our troops in S Korea and our past assistance to S Korea, the south would have been vaporized.  Iran could destroy the complete government of Isreal witha nuke, do you know how small Isreal is?  One nuke from Iran could kill over a million directly in NY if exploded there.  Iran’s navy has now traveled through the panama canal and close to the pacific american coast.  Regan was correct – peace through “strength”.  As a result russia’s eastern europe folded.  The #1 goal of government is to protect our country and its citizens from foreign aggressors

  • w. Parker

    You have the faintest idea what you’re talking about.  In response to one of your previous posts about what to do about iran developing the bomb – “BOMB them” dummy.  Team up with isreal and do a “conventional” bombing raid with bunker busters and special forces from both american and isreali armies – take out the facility!  But you suggest isreal do it themselves with a nuke.  You and Paul are suggesting to isreal to go nuclear right off the bat.  You and the rest of Paul followers would follow Paul right off the world if it were flat.   

  • w. Parker

    Through our defensless borders or from a missle fired from one of their navy ships.  The IAEA, a progressive UN affiliate, says they are on the brink of a nuclear weapon.  Who knows that they don’t already have one now or next monday?? Who really knows.  Can america afford one chance in a million for a nuclear weapon to go off in one of our major cities?? Anyone willing to take that chance is insane

  • http://www.praxacademy.com Rothbardian

    How would the U.S. be justified in a preemptive bombing of Iran? We would then be guilty of what we think Iran is going to do to us. It is not morally right, or constitutionally right unless we somehow pass a declaration of war on Iran.

    I am not suggesting Israel do it with a nuke, I am just saying that Israel has plenty of militaristic capabilities. They have dominated every Arab country that has challenged them in the past. Besides, if only a facility needs to be taken out, then I think that would be relatively simple to do with some bombs, no nukes.

  • w. Parker

    China IS evil.  They don’t need to use their nukes – yet anyway as they’re destroying us economically without firing a shot.  Russia IS evil too.  Don’t under estimate them one bit.  They’re in the process of building up their millitary to surpass ours.  They’re constructing of the largest naval submarine bases in the world in hugo chavez’s home town as i speak.   Evil is very “objective”.  It is also china’s and russian objections to our sanctions which might force us to take military action against iran……………..LSU #1 !!!!!

    And you, along with your buddy Ron Paul, have come up with no better answer except turn your back and let them destroy each other. “We should just get out of the way and mind our business.” – Ron Paul, GOP Debate, Nov., 22, 2011.

  • http://www.praxacademy.com Rothbardian

    Its the only moral way to treat the situation. Otherwise we will have to kill people unconstitutionally and without trial. Thats not something I want my government doing.

    If the state thinks it can solve the problems with Iran, it is wrong. It is another case of government trying to fix problems it created. I don’t think the state has a solution to Iran that won’t dig a deeper hole. Israel may continue to dig this hole, but shall we follow them down? Instead, we should focus on free trade, because as the old cliche says, when goods don’t cross borders, soldiers do.

    I don’t follow…why would he be institutionalized in his first term after he has been consistent for the past 30 years in congress? Perhaps he is frantic because he realizes he is the only one standing up for liberty. But anyways, Judge Andrew Napolitano would be a good choice for VP.

    Unfortunate for her and Palin, the mistakes that they have made have far outshadowed any credibility with the sheeple who consume mass media outlet gibberish.  Not that I am extremely in favor of Palin myself, but I believe that her character has suffered tremendously and not many have given her a fair chance since.

    He does not understand the Iranian President’s  mentality.  It is not rationsl and that could lead to disasterous decisions is he saw him as a normal person and thought he could deal with him that way.

    Based on her portrayal of Gingrich’s  comments on immigration as “blanket amnesty”, I question her exceptionalism. She appears to be playing the same old, tired, sleazy political game of mis-interpreting what a political opponent said and casting it in the over-simplified sound-bite attack that we are all so tired of (I hope). Immigration, social security, Medicare, etc. have no simple “sound-bite friendly” solutions that a politician can express in thirty seconds or less. Apparently, Bachmann lacks either the integrity to not play this game, or the intellectual capacity to comprehend creative solutions to difficult problems. Either way, she’s certainly not exceptional.

    There are many things that I can admire about Bachmann, and many things I don’t.  Overall, though, I wish she wouldn’t slam other candidates and organizations and people and just talk about what her own plans for Presidency are.  To be honest, I’m not alone here.  Many people are sick of those same old tactics.

    I don’t know anything about magic or how he does it, but the freemercytemple@yahoo.com is on the top of my personal list of “go-to people” when I find myself in a quandry or a dissapointment regarding my love life. That is the most important part of my life, in my opinion, and I was really going through a tough time with my wife of 23 years. It was really rough-going for several years before I finally got the kind of help I needed. I never would have thought I would have gone to a necromancer, but freemercytemple@yahoo.com  spell casting service is more than just about “spells”: He is a caring, deeply evolved human being with great sensitivity, and if it were not for him, I am totally certain my wife and I would be each other’s “ex” on this very day.
