Lady Bachmann Leads! June 22, 2011

Michele Bachmann - Presidential Hopeful

Wow! Just wow!

Fresh off her well-received performance in last week’s GOP presidential debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann now tops the field of candidates in a new Zogby poll of Republican primary voters.

The poll found Mrs. Bachmann garnering 24 percent of the vote, well-ahead of businessman Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who each received 15 percent support.

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., who officially announced his candidacy on Tuesday, scored just 2 percent support.

I really admire this woman. She’s decent, dedicated, of strong character, intelligent, and gifted in many areas that would make her a more than capable POTUS.  She’s also a conservative Lutheran, which may or may not have anything to do with her qualities.

Our Michele has her work cut out for her, however, since 37 percent of the 998 likely primary voters surveyed said they think Romney will win the nomination.  Bachmann received 7 percent of respondents predicting she would win the nomination.

Maybe her recent surge and good fortune comes from getting a hug from someone who promised to pray for her…

Washington's Firecracker and an Admirer.

Nawww…  Bachmann’s major-awesome all by herself.

… and folks polled in North Texas agree. My friend Mike just shared this link with me. Thanks, Mike!

But is she smarter than a 10th grader?

Michele Bachmann gained my respect when, after reading Mark Levin’s “Liberty and Tyranny,” she bought books for all the representatives in U.S. Congress and invited them to a luncheon/presentation featuring Mark Levin, so that they would have the opportunity to understand more fully their responsibilities and the realities of our times. She put someone else in the limelight and let them do what he does best. Educate and engage! She takes her copy of “Liberty and Tyranny” with her into sessions and frequently quotes from the book.

Good leaders know and cleave to guiding principles!

Bachmann/Perry or Perry/Bachmann

Think I’d be happy with either.

8. wiserbud - June 22, 2011

I think I would prefer Bachmann on top

*Not. Gonna. Say. It.*

10. wiserbud - June 22, 2011

oh, come one. It’s right there….

you know you wanna……

11. Mike O - June 22, 2011

OK: that’s just disturbing imagery right there.
Perry ending up with either slot would leave us with Dewhurst as governor. UGH!

Long shot = Congress Rep making it to the White House.

Longer shot = Congress Rep in a skirt making it to the White House.

Not happenin. But she deserves her shot just like everybody else.

Longer shot = Congress Rep in a skirt making it to the White House.

But making it to the Senate? Piece of cake.

Glad to hear that, Dave. The next year is gonna be interesting.

Bachmann’s got guts because she knows that going negative is all Obama’s got, and with the MFM on his side, it’s going to be an ugly, brutal campaign for whoever the Repub candidate is.

She’s somewhat gaffe-prone, but so is Obama. If they want to go there, so can we.

17. Cathy - June 22, 2011

Deb, I think the strategy is that EVERYONE in the Repub side keep hammering on Obama and the libs and not pick on each other too much, so as not to give the libs, dems, and media a toe-hold into us. If they can divide us and we polarize on our own pet issues, we could lose this.

I’ve given this a LOT of thought having started sort of fresh into the political playgrounds these past 2 years or so. I think it’s gonna take a whole new way of campaigning and networking. I know. I’m nuts.

She needs to answer for mandating 20% ethanol in Minnesota. (me and Russ were arguing about other things but on this he’s mostly right.)

who am I kiddin? She hasn’t got a snowball’s chance in hell.

19. osoloco - June 22, 2011

I think it was Hillary who said ” You don’t have to fall in love. You just have to fall in line”. I’m getting tired of falling in line. I like Michele better than the other announced candidates.

20. Rustic One From Winterset - June 23, 2011

Thanks for the kind word, Dave; however, I was talking about Pawlenty’s advocacy of ethanol. I’m not aware of any positions that Mrs. Bachmann took on ethanol mandates.

She might have been “on the bandwagon” and I didn’t know it, but at least she wasn’t driving the damn thing and putting up posters promoting the fact that “I’m leading this charge” like Pawlenty did.

Don’t get me wrong: I’ll vote for Pawlenty in November ’12 if he’s the nominee, same as Bachmann. I just think he’s got flaws that will make him winning the general election VERY difficult.

21. Russ from Winterset - June 23, 2011

Dammit! No coffee yet this morning, so I fumblefingered my comment. Could I get a hand deleting that comment, or at least changing the poster name?

22. Dave in Texas - June 23, 2011

2005 – voted for em.

23. Russ from Winterset - June 23, 2011

OK, you’re right. We’re gonna need an explanation. Voting for them isn’t as bad as being the head cheerleader trying to convince everyone else to vote for them too; however it’s still a bad thing.
