Credit Rating Downgrade

The Republicans are blaming President Obama for the Standard and Poor’s downgrade.  I guess the Congress completely washed their hands of any impact on the credit rating downgrade.  Michelle Bachman even suggest that Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, offered his resignation.  In my opinion, she is the one that needs to resign.  President?  What a joke.

We have the most comprehensive resources, links and information on Michele Bachmann, on the Internet.

Bachmann was born Michele Amble on April 6, 1956, and grew up in Apoka, Minnesota.  She graduated from Anoka High School in 1974, and attended Winona State College and graduated in 1978 with a degree in Political Science and English. she met her husband Marcus Bachmann while attending college and they married in 1978. That same year they moved to Tulsa Oklahoma where Michelle enrolled at the Bible-based Colburn school of law, an affiliate of Oral Roberts University. She earned a juris doctorate at Colburn in 1986 a post-doctorate degree from William and Mary Law school in Virginia in 1988.

From 1988 to 1993, Bachmann was a US Treasury Department attorney in St. Paul Minnesota, representing the IRS against people who underpaid or fail to pay their taxes. In 1993, she left her job to become a full-time mother and eventually took over twenty foster children under her care.

Minnesota Elected Offices:

In 1999, Bachmann ran as one of a slate of GOP candidates for the Stillwater, Minnesota school board, normally a non-partisan election. She and the other GOP-endorsed candidates did not win.

In 2000, Bachmann won election to the state Senate, unseating a fellow Republican, Gary Laidig who had been in office for 28 years. Bachman managed to obtain the GOP endorsement and beat Laidig in the primary election.

In 2002, Bachmann faced a 10-year incumbent, DFL state senator Jane Krentz, after district lines were redrawn following the 2000 census. Bachmann won the election by 9 percentage points.

Congressional Career:

Bachmann defeated Democrat Patty Wetterling 50% to 42% in the 2006 congressional elections to replace Rep. Mark Kennedy, who vacated the seat to run for the U.S. Senate.

We would kindly add this lost soul to the Hit List, but we have to dedicate several pages. Quite frankly, it would be a waste of effort because this person walks to a different tune. A tune that has never been written and never will. It is amazing why some people get elected and you wonder about those who voted for them.

Below is a direct quote of  Bachmann explaining the message she received from the Almighty.

“And in the midst of that calling, God then called me to run for the United States Congress. And I thought, what in the world would that be for? And my husband said “You need to do this.” And I wasn’t so sure. And we took three days, and we fasted and we prayed. And we said “Lord, is this what you want? Is this Your will?” And after — along about the afternoon of day two — He made that calling sure. And it’s been now 22 months that I’ve been running for United States Congress. Who in their right mind would spend two years to run for a job that lasts for two years? You’d have to be absolutely a fool to do that. You are now looking at a fool for Christ. This is a fool for Christ.”

A humorous history of Bachmann

The doctorate of science, Michele Bachmann attempts to educate the Congress that carbon dioxide is not really harmful to human beings. Do you ever wonder about people of the utterly embarrassed themselves, especially when the entire nation in the United States Congress is watching, and it simply has no effect on them. Minnesota, what are you doing?

On a recent testing the waters to run for the presidency, Michele Bachmann gives the people of Manchester New Hampshire a history lesson on where the first shot was fired of the Revolutionary War. On the YouTube video, when told of her mistakes, her only response is that New Hampshire should be proud too. Someone help this woman. I don’t think her district in Minnesota has anybody alive.

4-2009–Was Backmann ever dealt a full deck? When the Swine flu emerged at the beginning of the Obama presidency, she alluded to the fact that the last time it occurred was also during a Democratic presidency. Actually, the last outbreak was during the presidency of Gerald Ford. below is an excerpt and a link to the March 24, 2011 Daily Beast.

Then there was that “interesting coincidence” she professed to discover during the swine flu scare at the beginning of Obama’s term–“that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter.” 4-28-2009

Bachmann rather generously insisted that she’s “not blaming this on President Obama” or the Democrats. It was just sort of you know, “interesting.” Thing is, the last outbreak had taken place not under Carter, but under Republican Gerald Ford. (To be fair to Bachmann, you need to be in about ninth grade to have gotten that far in American history.)

Republican presidential debate — June 13, 2011:   When Will Michele Bachman get it right? During the Republican the Bates on Monday, June 13, Michele Bachman stated that because of the health care plan, 800,000 Americans would lose their job. According to fact check.org, her statement is factually incorrect. Because of the health care bill, 800,000 people will either quit working or work less because health insurance coverage would be more affordable. In reality, it actually will free up jobs for those currently unemployed. How can anybody vote for someone it constantly misrepresents the facts and in this case most likely had no idea what she was talking about.

Think progress .org states that the health-care bill will reduce the labor supply by 800,000 and and the jobs.
