    We just won't go away. Good for her.



    Republicans have been wrangling for more than a year over how exactly to handle the tea party movement, but now Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is bringing them under the big tent.

    The House Administration committee, which usually takes days to approve something of this nature, approved Bachmann's request to create a House Tea Party Caucus in a day. It will certainly give the national movement a more official voice within the House Republican Conference.

    Bachmann, already a hero within the tea party, sent a letter to House Administration Chairman Robert Brady (D-Pa.) Thursday to register the House Tea Party Caucus to serve as an “informal group of members dedicated to promote Americans’ call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution and limited government.”

    Bachmann, in a statement, said Americans have “had enough of the spending, bureaucracy and the government-knows-best mentality running rampant today throughout the halls of Congress.”

    I'm surprised the Dem's didn't try to stonewall this.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    MSnBC's Dylan Ratigan said several times on his show that she Bachman is full of crap and of course he had guests on that repeated the same thing.

    Did you see the lady tea partier that said, you can call us what you want But what's important is what we answer to.

    Beck says, we're being divided. Yes we are. And that division is being perpetrated by the left. I get the feeling they know exactly what their goal is.

    Most countries are divided over many issues, and have been for centuries. It is the normal state of affairs. Also individuals will flip flop depending on the issue at hand.

    Good to see you!

    Have no fear; democrats have target her as their #1 candidate to defeat in Nov. This will just make them and the media go after her more.

    I would vote for her. However, her accomplishments and experience are few and far between. Plus, as others have stated that without a super majority, a Repub President will get little done. I disagree with that assessment.

    The only reason I say NO to her as President is because I don't want to loose her as my Congresswoman. ;)

    So far she is quite ahead in the polls. It's still a long way to go, but so far so good.
