While there are things Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says I agree with, I have no illusions at all about her ability to either be president, let alone think she is electable to any office outside of her own highly republican district.
Despite the fact that her candidacy for president will die not long after the New Hampshire primary, the left has been relentless in it’s attacks. And not just attacks on her policies and statements. But the constant posting of unflattering pictures of her.
I have been vocal in my disappointment in the republican field. We don’t need the same talking points and slavery to single issue promoters who can’t answer questions with answers like the ones Grover Norquist gives. We need adults with real plans.
Mitt Romney, a successful business man and governor has been a particular disappointment. He should be acting like a chief executive and taking the lead, attacks from his opponents be darned, instead of parroting what everyone other than Ron Paul says.
And just as I call for the republicans to raise the level of debate, the left in my opinion is only making themselves look the fool with their use of unflattering pictures of republican candidates. That will only anger and further motivate the right to work harder to win. Plus, independents are looking for answers. They will support the candidate that gives them. Not the ones who resort to insult and embarrassing photos thinking that will win votes. And that person may well win the election because if neither side is willing to say more than an approved list of talking points, all that’s left to decide whom to vote for is how the candidate carried himself during the election. And then the decision is: do the independents vote for the candidate who resorts to despicable tactics, or the adult?
