With the economic situation as it is, I’m not sure why Michele Bachmann’s views on homosexuality are relevant.
I don’t agree with them, but I do generally agree with her fiscal/economic views (at least what I know of them).
Good point. And that is perhaps the reason first Yahoo! and then AOL promoted the story:
Seems they want to keep the focus on the various Republican candidates’ quirks (or celebrities’ self-promoting critiques) to prevent Americans from realizing how much more closely conservative candidates are aligned with mainstream American opinion than is the incumbent administration.
Despite her positions on social positions, Mrs. Bachmann does have a far better idea of what ails the American economy than does Barack Obama. He may say that conservative economy theories have “never worked“, but, well, that remark ignores the economic record of the last two decades of the Twentieth Century.
And Obama’s one to talk; his $800-billion “stimulus” failed to work as promised. Meanwhile, the last president to try the “trickle down economics” that Obama excoriated did, despite inheriting a weak economy from his predecessor, leave office during an era of unprecedented prosperity.
Well, maybe Keynesian economic theory “proves” that conservative economic policies don’t work. The real world has produced slightly different results.
So to keep us distracted from the real world record of Obama’s economic policies, our friends in the MSM need to cook up new stories each day about Republican presidential candidates, lest the American people start to realize how, on the key issues of the day, they have far more in common with those supposedly outlandish Republicans than they do with the incumbent.
