Did you happen to see the first round of GOP presidential debates last night?
They were pretty boring and I would have fallen asleep if not for Tea Party Queen Bachmann. She made her presence known right away by ignoring the first question the host asked her and instead announced she was running for president. Well, duh…we kinda figured that out when she signed up for this debate.
Got to hand it to her. She’s cagey. You see, she hadn’t “officially” signed up prior to the debate. That gave her a swell opportunity to plug her campaign before the others knew what hit them!
Everybody’s saying she’s bringing flare to the campaign. She lights up every time she talks about her beloved Tea Party.That certainly turned the pro-Republican audience on and they stomped their feet in approval like good elephants. Nothing like that down-home rhetoric!
Known for piercing and sometimes inaccurate commentary, she regularly aggravates political foes and provides ample fodder to late-night comics. She once falsely claimed taxpayers would be stuck with a $200 million per day tab for Democratic President Barack Obama's trip to India. She mistakenly identified New Hampshire as the site of the Revolutionary War's opening shots. (That key American moment occurred in Massachusetts.)
Was there any substance in last nights debate? Hardly, unless you count how many times the candidates said ObamaCare or RomneyObamaCare. The only thing they all had in common was their hatred towards Obama.
Was their any clear cut favorites? Some pundits thing Bachmann was the beneficiary of being in the same room with six stupid men and came away the winner. Her competition came across like six of the seven dwarfs in Snow White.
I’d like to point out some substance on behalf of the boys, but the very best they could muster was some one-liners heavily interspersed with party rhetoric devoid of reality. I will say they tried to go easy on Romney (as he is the early favorite), but once again Bachmann stood out by separating herself from all of them.
She may be crazy. But she’s crazy like a fox.
