Last night, Anderson Cooper did another one of his “Keeping them Honest” segments.

This time his target was none other than Rep. Michele Bachmann, who he accused of having “flunked history”.

    Finally someone has the journalistic and political chutzpah to put Rep. Bachmann to task and accountability for her brash twisted historical references and brash commentaries. And, she wants to run for President in 2012!

    What has happened to America when political loose cannons like Bachmann incessantly preach didactic erroneous political rhetoric that has no beneficial substantive value but to inflame a hurting economically depressed constituency and politically confused country? You only have to look at recent and past 20th Century history to have your answers.

    Ms Bachmann and the naysayers should look to the core of American history and political tradition to find the answers they seek. Better yet, the country needs to believe in its motto–“E Pluribus Unum”(Latin)–“From many one!”–to reunite itself in truly being the United States of America. If not, like many other great societies and civilizations we become just a footnote in the passing of time.

    The aforementioned Founding precepts are something that Ms Bachmann should consider with her remarks and actions. Divisive destructive inane commentaries serve no purpose but hurt this state and nation and only demonstrate or illustrate political buffoonery..

    The whole liberal movement during the 60’s and 70’s was much worse.

    Someone should tell Anderson Cooper, “Never trust anyone over 30”

    Michele Bachmann is like Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Linda McMahon, they are just not right but funny. I especially like the clip of Bachmann saying that the founding fathers abolished slavery, wow, what a liar, not the first or last time that will happen. Does anyone with self-respect real believe her?

    Her response failed to say how we got here from eight years of poor leadership, two wars without end, diminished Civil liberties. Its like she crawl out from under a rock just to complain about our current President. We all know that Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works started the Tea Party, grasroots, please.
