WASHINGTON (AP) — Michele Bachmann’s claim that she has “never gotten a penny” from a family farm that’s been subsidized by the government is at odds with her financial disclosure statements. They show tens of thousands in personal income from the operation.

And, on a less substantive note, she flubbed her hometown history when declaring “John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa,” and “that’s the kind of spirit that I have, too,” in running for president.

The actor was born nearly 150 miles away. It was the serial killer John Wayne Gacy Jr. who lived, for a time, in Waterloo.

Those were among the latest examples of how the Minnesota congresswoman has become one to watch — for inaccuracies as well as rising support — in the Republican presidential race.

Bachmann’s wildly off-base assertion last month that a NATO airstrike might have killed as many as 30,000 Libyan civilians, her misrepresentations of the health care law, misfires on other aspects of President Barack Obama’s record and historical inaccuracies have saddled her with a reputation for uttering populist jibes that don’t hold up. On Tuesday, she erred in describing John Quincy Adams as a Founding Father.

She announced her candidacy Monday in Iowa with a speech typical for someone joining the campaign. It laid out the broad themes of her candidacy and mostly avoided the Bachmann bomblets that have grabbed attention — and often fizzled under scrutiny — in the long lead-up.

The more the political season heats up, the more that exaggerations and sound-bite oversimplifications emanate from the Republicans going after Obama — and from the Democrats playing defense. Still, Bachmann’s record on this score is distinct.

Examining 24 of her statements, Politifact.com, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking service of the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, found just one to be fully true and 17 to be false (seven of them “pants on fire” false). No other Republican candidate whose statements have been vigorously vetted matched that record of inaccuracy.

A look at some of her recent statements and how they compare with the facts:

BACHMANN: “The farm is my father-in-law’s farm. It’s not my husband and my farm. It’s my father-in-law’s farm. And my husband and I have never gotten a penny of money from the farm.” — On “Fox News Sunday.”

THE FACTS: In personal financial disclosure reports required annually from members of Congress, Bachmann reported that she holds an interest in a family farm in Independence, Wis., with her share worth between $100,000 and $250,000.

The farm, which was owned by her father-in-law, produced income for Bachmann of at least $32,500 and as much as $105,000 from 2006 through 2009, according to the reports she filed for that period. The farm also received federal crop and disaster subsidies, according to a database maintained by the Environmental Working Group. From 1995 through 2010, the farm got $259,332 in federal payments.

When asked about the subsidies and her income from the farm late last year, a spokesman for Bachmann said only that she wasn’t involved in decisions about the running of the farm.

Bachmann told The Associated Press on Monday that her husband became a trustee of the farm because his father had dementia before he died two years ago, and “oversees the legal entity.”

“Everything we do with those forms is in an abundance of caution,” she said, insisting she and her husband receive no farm income despite the forms reporting it.


BACHMANN: “If you look at one of our Founding Fathers, John Quincy Adams, that’s absolutely true. He was a very young boy when he was with his father serving essentially as his father’s secretary. He tirelessly worked throughout his life to make sure that we did in fact one day eradicate slavery.” — On ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

THE FACTS: John Quincy Adams was not a Founding Father. He was 9 when the Declaration of Independence was made and 20 when the Constitution was adopted. His father, John Adams, was the Revolutionary War figure and an architect of the declaration — and therefore a Founding Father. Both father and son became president. Bachmann was defending her earlier, inaccurate remark that the Founding Fathers had devoted themselves to ending slavery.

John Quincy Adams, president from 1825 to 1829, privately called slavery a “great and foul stain” but largely sidestepped the issue in office, according to “The Reader’s Companion to the American Presidency.” He tried to avoid antagonizing the South while reasoning that his push for a stronger central government would hasten slavery’s end over time.


BACHMANN: “Well what I want them to know is, just like John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa, that’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.” — Speaking to Fox News on Sunday.

Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa, nearly three hours away, and moved to California in his childhood. John Wayne Gacy, convicted of killing 33 men and boys, was born in Chicago, moved to Waterloo to work in his father-in-law’s chicken restaurants and first ran afoul of the law there, sentenced to 10 years for sodomy. He began his killing spree after his release, and his return to Illinois.

Bachmann told CNN on Tuesday her comments “were just misspeaking” and that her main intent was to show she identified with Wayne’s patriotism.


BACHMANN: “Overnight we are hearing that potentially 10 to 30,000 people could have been killed in the strike.” — Criticizing Obama in May for the “foolish” U.S. intervention in Libya, and citing what she said were reports of a civilian death toll from a NATO strike as high as 30,000.

THE FACTS: The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Gene Cretz, said in late April that U.S. officials have seen reports that 10,000 to 30,000 people may have died in Moammar Gadhafi’s crackdown on protesters and the fighting between rebels and pro-government forces, but it is hard to know if that is true. He was speaking about all casualties of the conflict; no one has attributed such a death toll to NATO bombing alone, much less to a single strike.


BACHMANN: “It’s ironic and sad that the president released all of the oil from the strategic oil reserve. … There’s only a limited amount of oil that we have in the strategic oil reserve. It’s there for emergencies.” — On CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

THE FACTS: Obama did not empty all the oil from the strategic reserve, as Bachmann said. He approved the release of 30 million barrels, about 4 percent of the 727 million barrels stored in salt caverns along the Texas and Louisiana coasts. It’s true that the U.S. normally taps the reserve for more dire emergencies than exist today, and that exposes Obama to criticism that he acted for political gain. But the reserve has never been fuller; it held 707 million barrels when last tapped, after 2008 hurricanes.


BACHMANN: “One. That’s the number of new drilling permits under the Obama administration since they came into office.” — Comment to a conservative conference in Iowa in March.

THE FACTS: The Obama administration issued more than 200 new drilling permits before the Gulf oil spill alone. Over the past year, since new safety standards were imposed, the administration has issued more than 60 shallow-water drilling permits. Since the deep water moratorium was lifted in October, nine new wells have been approved.

    What about the graft-taker-in-chief? When he was an Illinois legislator he lobbied for, and got a million dollar grant for the University Of Chicago Hospital, after which his also corrupt wife Michelle was promptly given a 300K per year job as “Diversity Consultant” at the hospital, that required her to show up less than 20 hours per week. After Barry from the block got elected she resigned her position and the hospital left it unfilled. That’s called pay to play, or influence peddling, bribery, or whatever you want, but it’s criminal. But in Chicago you got to get paid. Just ask Blaggo.

    1. Jim says:

      You’d have a good point if this story was about the president. But it’s not, so you don’t. Got anything to write about Bachmann’s idiocy?

      1. Rico Suave says:

        My point is that Bachmann gets hammered about something is small as whether or not the family farm ever got any kind of subsidy, while your president has taken bribes in the millions and the media of course goes mute on us. If Blaggo goes to prison for what he tried to, Obama should get prosecuted for what he did do. Or at the very least, would it be too much to ask our media to do a little investigative reporting on the other guys for a change? He got hundreds of thousands in kickbacks too from one of his big contributors named Tony Rezko who is now in the place Blaggo is headed and Obama skates on that one too. And they stopped Blaggo before he sold the Senate seat to Obama, which is very curious and lucky. And just a tad more serious than whether the family farm got a legal subsidy. WHERE”S THE MEDIA?

        1. Jim says:

          Wow Rico, that post is a failure. If there is some evidence, such as the public records Bachmann lied about, of Obama receiving illegal money I’m sure you can provide a link or some kind of evidence.

          “And they stopped Blaggo before he sold the Senate seat to Obama.” This is a joke, right? When Blagojevich tried to sell the Senate seat, Obama was the president-elect of the United States. In what world did Blago try to sell Obama the seat he just vacated? That makes NO sense, but I can tell arguing with you is going to be fruitless.

        2. What??? says:

          You call $259,332 small? The reason she got grilled about it is she claims to never have taken any money from the Gov for this as well as she never made a profit from it. If you cannot see this point then you have the blinders on and are only looking at 1 thing. We understand you do not like Obama but again the question has to be asked, was anything in this story about him? Then why would you skirt the issue at hand and bring him into this? Oh, that is right, GOP have no defense for what they do. Their idea of defense is… Wait, what, I may or may not have done that I will have to get back to you…. LOOK OVER THERE!!!!

          1. Phid says:

            You cannot see that the press has given Obama virtually a free pass, while they hammer like crazy on Republicans? It’s called a DOUBLE STANDARD. Did Obama get grilled by the media for talking about the “57 states”?

            1. What??? says:

              You say the exact same thing as the person that I post to before. Why would I have to say it again as I have already stated this? You cannot read? If you can then your question was already answered, 1s again, LOOK OVER THERE!!

      2. John Frykman says:

        Jim, you don’t get it, do you. It’s about the dual standard for the MSM in scrutinizing candidates. If you are a radical leftist, like Obama and his cronies, you get a pass. In fact, you get more than that–you get your own, personal, unpaid campaign volunteers. You don’t get tough questions–you get “softballs.” If any person DARES to voice a legitimate critical comment of the “O” (that’s as in ZERO), you are called a race monger and a hater.

        Obama has the thinnest resume of any elected president. His past is shrouded in mystery our for some unknowable reason, the records have been sealed. No college transcripts. No details about his association with Bill Ayers, the Weathermen terrorist who went to prison, no scrutiny of his legislative record, an obviously forged certificate of live birth that was submitted after years of legitimate requests laughed off by the MSM…

        Do you get it now? Most Americans know they elected a fraud. Yet you and WCCO can find nothing better to do with your time than literally nit pick a candidate whose honest achievements make Obama look like, well, a ZERO!

    2. Tired of you! says:

      You know Rico, you really need to get a life or crawl under the rock you came from.

    3. Phid says:

      This is brought to us by the Associated Press, otherwise known as the “Attack of the Progressives” (AP). So it’s not really surprising that they are on the hunt ALREADY to attack conservative women running for office. What did the AP say about Obama claiming there were 57 states, anyway?

      1. What??? says:

        Do you have ANYTHING else to say? 57 states, 57 states, 57 states, 57 states, we hear you and are still asking the same thing. When you have 1 argument to make against the 14 that have been stated here do you think you have a leg to stand on? Sad how you prove my point time and time again and still continue to do so. Keep fighting the good fight though, you know what they say, you lie for so long that you start believing the lie yourself.

  2. Sam I Am says:

    Its hard to believe how blatantly obvous CCO makes it that they are opposed to Michelle Bachmann and for the annointed one.

    A paper is suppose to be impartial not as biased as WCCO. That is precisesly why I do not watch it any longer.

    1. U Betcha says:

      When a article tells the truth you get upset. MB is a Kook with a capitol K. She is just a con artist spewing all the BS she can to get what she wants. I really hope the GOP can do better or we are all in trouble.

      1. Tom says:

        @ U Betcha

        Callling Bachmann a Kook is far to nice lol. Its not the medias fault she can’t get anything right! But you also have to take into consideration the crowd she was talking to which is Social Conservatives / Tea Party people and the intelligence level in that crowd is not that high to begin with. But lets face facts as long as they believe what they say is true is all that matters to them, even when they believe what they are saying is true, isn’t true at all.

    2. Brian I Am says:

      Sometimes you’ve got to call a spade a spade. Bachmann is an idiot. It’s not as if CCO is making these stories up or pulling stuff out of thin air. It is was it is. Get over it…you’re on the bandwagon with a GOP idiot.

      1. meow says:

        She is starting to make Palin look smart. That is scary.

    3. v says:

      … and yet here you are.

      ‘CCO doesn’t supply Mother Goose with her incorrect fact sheets.
      She just blabs whatever BS she things the sheep want to hear.

    4. DTM says:

      Ummm, WCCO isn’t a paper…. and they are just reporting what this idiot says. She wants t be president? Well, get ready to be scrutinized. If she can’t take it she can always go back to MN and live off those subsidies she “doesn’t get a penny” from.

      1. meow says:

        WE HERE IN MN DON’T WANT HER BACK!!! Keep Timmy PawPaw out also.

    5. ??? says:

      Sam I Am
      It’s hard to believe that you are as dull as you are as this was not a story by WCCO. That would be why at the beginning of the story it has (AP) as this was done by the associated press and not WCCO. It is also hard to believe that you think that this is a paper. I don’t know about you but last I checked WCCO is a broadcasting news station that has a web site that allows blogs. So very true, hard to believe, I thought that people in today’s age can do a search if they do not believe something that they read online for the real facts (which have not been post if you have found different info). That would be why this is called the information age. Last thing is that if any of this info is wrong I (and I would assume most others that post here) would love to get the correct info. So start your homework and get cracking because just spewing your own stupidity is not a fact nor does it negate the things that have been proven in this story.

  3. Monkey says:

    Yup Bachmann compares to Obama on the lies, that’s why I say that there is no difference in the 2-party paradigm. The only politician that I trust is Congressman Ron Paul, and they try to drum him out of the spotlight.

    The media promotes the con artists,like Obama and Bachmann and then they blackout the honest ones, like Ron Paul. Sickening

  4. Angus says:

    Typical conservative reactions:
    1. Name calling and CCO, foronce, is the station for the white, suburban, financially secure , over 55 citizen. For once a media person exposed Bachmann.

    2. Do not defend or explain. Just name call and present mis-statements about our president. Do I detect an aroma of anti black sentiment?

    Bachmann’s Plan: cut inheritance taxes, retirement income taxes, and corporate taxes. All favor the rich, which means white people as there are not many minority rich people.

    1. Linnaem says:

      Wow – I did not know that only white people die and therefore are the only ones that benefit from the inheritance tax cut!!! NIIIICE–minorities live FOREVER–I did not know that!

    2. ??? says:

      You are so right that there are no rich minorities. All those pro athletes have to actually pay to play those games, not make multi millions a year. All those musicians do not get paid at all. Everyone knows there are no minorities that own their own business’s or are on wall street or are successful in any way shape or form.

      At first I thought you were a supporter of MB, after reading the lies that you are posting I am now thinking that you may be part of her staff or…. MB herself. You are a sad person with a very narrow mind and I hope you do not have any children so the cycle of stupidity will not be carried on to the next generation. Bigotry and racism will eventually go away when people like you stop speaking and start listening.

  5. anitanewprez says:

    Did everyone forget that Barry said there were 57 states in the US? Funny how there are 57 MUSLIM states. He showed where loyalties are.
    At least Bachmann is actually a US citizen.

    1. NRA Member says:

      LMFAO — here ya go…..prove it. And not by that hospital record. Or that county or state record.
      I want testimonuy from the doctor and all nurses and staff present. Footprints too.
      Then DNA to ensure the family didn’t float down from mars.
      Then I might believe she’s from Iowa
      The Bachmann way ….bs and then learn the facts. My way – don’t trust the wench an inch. Nor Obama.

    2. v says:

      I hope you’re kidding…. that’s all you got?

      1. DTM says:

        It’s all that is needed. Bach does the rest all by hersely…

  6. d kauls says:

    She also says she was a “federal tax attorney.” What she actually was, after graduating from a defunct law school founded by a preacher who used to cure people over the radio, was an IRS agent. Yes, that IRS. Yes, she was a Revenoooer. And a bureaucrat. Oh, my.

    1. Reasonable says:

      And worked for the Carter Administration. So basically she’s a Democrat turncoat a la Norm Coleman…

      If you want to know anything about this politician, one need only look at her desire to repeal portions of the Investor Protection Act (Sarbanes Oxley more or less) that created the accounting standards after Enron/WorldCom that ripped off middle class familie’s retirement accounts.

      That’s what you’re voting for ‘friends’.

    2. Phid says:

      d kauls, what law school did you go to?

  7. Angus bull says:

    Pure propaganda under the guise of a “fact check.” Responsible citizens should not blindly accept as fact statements made by either politicians or the media. It is interesting that “Angus” makes the bigoted and erroneous assumption that there are not many “minority rich people” in order to perpetuate the cherished liberal class war. A typical liberal reaction and ploy.And yes, the media does ignore the numerous gaffs made by the liberal politicians whom they serve.

    1. v says:

      … and your comments are less erroneous and/or assumed about people with a liberal mindset? Cherry picking m’boy… how convenient.

    2. meow says:

      More like a Freudian Slip on her part. She compared herself to a criminal.

  8. Molly says:

    We need more politicians like Bachmann to save our country. Barry and his band of perverted libs are destroying the US.
    By the way, where have all the war protesters gone? If Bush was in office they would be everywhere. Three illegal wars and no protesters? What a bunch of hypocrates!!

    1. quentin says:

      They are on the Lake Street Bridge over the Mississippi at 4:30 every Wednesday.

    2. U Betcha says:

      Your joking, right?

      1. markH says:

        “Your” is a demonstrative pronoun, while “you’re” is a contraction meaning “you are.” I notice that most people consistently use these words improperly. Peace.

    3. GOP hoe down says:

      They there Molly – pull yer head out of yer ass and look around. The only ones not knowing facts like this are the blind and the TeaPeas

  9. Bobber says:

    Komrad Kessler must have missed the 57 states comment, the “Corpsman” fk up and a bunch of other babble from BHO.
    And we cant leave Bite-me out, he’s a walking GAF but you wont hear that from Pat, No Sir he is thier lap dog. CCO should start with him and clean house.

    1. Beer Guzzling Redneck says:

      So you’re refuting that Michele Bachmann said the things she’s quoted as saying in the above article?

      Or you’re not?

  10. StraycatStrut says:

    Well at least she was not born in Kenya and knows the number of States in the Union….. and has a legimite birth certificate. Better then what we have now.

    1. Yep says:

      Just so you know you sound like a fool when you question his birth status.

    2. Me says:

      Great, your an after-birther.

      1. YOU + ARE = YOU'RE says:

        … and you’re a failed 2nd grade speller.

        1. Speedo toledo says:

          And you’re (happy?) a cabron for pointing out what has to be one of the most common spelling errors ever. And were you truly into correct grammar, you would never use the + symbol for the word and.

    3. ??? says:

      @ stray
      How many times does someone have to show a birth certificate and how many times does the state they were born in have to release the info before idiots like you can read it for yourself? It is post online in many different sites and you can view it yourself. You should really stop that idiotic stand point as this shows how ridiculous you really are. Your ignorance is showing and you may want to comb that back over.

  11. Steve says:

    This thread shows that Bachmann supporters are as troubling as Bachmann herself.

    I love seeing Shelly in the national spotlight. Let the world marvel at our Minnesota treasure.

  12. Troy D Teske says:

    Everyone questioning why the democrats aren’t getting this kind of scrutiny right now are forgetting several things.

    1) The Dems aren’t running primaries for the presidential election, so we don’t have a full field of stuffed shirts and loons to look at.

    2) Obama isn’t from Minnesota, MB is. Local channel, local emphasis.

    3) Everyone makes mistakes – it is the nature of the errors that make a difference, and if they own up to them. For example, the “57 states” error was a simple goof, and was acknowledged. Thus far we haven’t heard a retraction or acknowledgement that the “10-30,000 killed” statement was erroneous. It also raises an eyebrow when she planned an entire speech around comparing herself to John Wayne (or praising the state that started the war for independence) without bothering to make sure she had the facts straight. She wrote those speeches ahead of time, so there shouldn’t be basic mistakes like that – those aren’t examples of errors in speech, those are either deliberate distortions or her assuming she doesn’t need to fact-check. I’m not sure which would reflect worse on her.

  13. Me says:

    Oh, get over the 57 states. Clearly, Obama was going to say 47 then realized they’d been to all 50 and the colliding thoughts came out verbally as 57. Funny, with all the time Obama has been in the spotlight, all people can come up with is this one misspeak but yet for Bachmann, there are over a dozen. And they clearly are factual inaccuracies rather than two trains of thought on the same track.

    1. Give me liberty says:


      Seriously Me? Obama has had one misspeak? How do you even have a dialogue with someone so delusional as you? Obama hasn’t done one thing right with the exception of getting Bin Laden. You dismiss mistakes as misspeak when it’s your bobo and claim ignorance or stupidity when it’s someone whose ideas you don’t agree with. This is why compromise will never work. Why even try to compromise with individuals that have no basis for reality.

      1. Beer Guzzling Redneck says:

        “Obama hasn’t done one thing right”

        Not one, eh?

        You’ve just demonstrated that you haven’t even been paying attention. All you’re doing is assuming that the radical fundamentalist Republicans are right. What a naive viewpoint.

        1. Jim says:

          Anyone who thinks that the president of the United States actually thinks there are 57 states is a stone cold moron. Bachmann, on the other hand, lies about collecting government money through her farm because her tea party backers wouldn’t like that, and some people don’t see the difference. Classic partisanship.

        2. Mr. M says:

          Agreed Beer. Fully Agree.

      2. Sick of blind sheep says:

        @ Give me. The article is speaking of misspeaks. How can you have a dialogue with someone who changes the subject?

      3. ??? says:

        Give me liberty
        What are we trying to compromise on here? Are we compromising that MB is an idiot that should not have a national spotlight as it makes the entire state look bad? Are we compromising that she only said half of the quotes that are on tape and have been played dozens of times? Are we compromising that the liberal media is taking her statements out of context even though those were word for word quotes? Your statement makes no sense as this has nothing to do with the story that it is being post under. Is this the argument that the GOP has? This story is about a outside source (Politifact.com) who does fact checking for everything from Fox news to CNN, they even have done fact checking on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report so you can really sit there and say that it is a media bias? If that is what you are saying, or any of you for that matter I would ask you to look into it personally and find the real info. I will continue to believe the people of Politifact.com as they seem to have better staff and fact checking than anyone that posts here (especially since the majority of you are still using arguments that have been proven wrong and are 2 years old. Stay the course though, if you lie long enough you yourself start believing it. That makes it true right?

        1. Mr. M says:


          WELL SAID!!! THANK YOU!!! a voice of reason

  14. Yep says:

    I really hope this moron wins the nomination. Would make for some great entertainment.

    1. Quentin says:

      Yes, Mr. Bachmann, it would.

      1. Fluffer says:

        Just waiting for the Nude pics from her days @ Harvard Law.

  15. Alfred says:

    She’s getting a lot more scrutiny than Obama did.

    I wonder why that is? Oh yeah, the mainstream media is comprised of bleeding heart liberals.

    1. Jim says:

      I feel so sorry for conservatives. It must be so hard to face the big, scary media everyday. Hold on while I get out my tiny violin…

    2. Gerry says:

      ..Or, she is making many more mistakes than Obama and deserves the scrutiny she is receiving.

  16. Give me liberty says:

    Go Fact Check Obama, Pelosi, and Dayton who are actually in office destroying our nation you bunch of liberal socialists.

    1. quentin says:

      Cut that out, Michele. Show some class.

    2. Beer Guzzling Redneck says:

      LOL @ “Destroying our nation”

      That is hilarious. I assume you’ve stocked up on duct tape and plastic rolls, right??

      1. Fluffer says:

        Yeah, the Dept of Homeland Security recomends this for a gas attack. I took the NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) course while in the Army. When I heard Mr. Ridge tell Americans to do this, I just started laughing. Just as bad as Soviet Russia giving their sheep “Anti Radiation Pills” aka Asprin

    3. Reasonable says:


      There’s Mark Dayton for you. I’ll assume that you can get to the rest yourself once you’re at the site yourself. The only bias that the site has is towards factual information. Then again, facts tend to have a liberal bias when stated to hard core righties…

  17. Common Man says:

    Thank God for people like Michele Bachmann who will stop George Soros from destroying the United State with his puppet Obamma
    and all of his “the government needs to take care of me and control my life” followers.

    1. markH says:

      Because there are 50 states, you should have pluralized “state” to be accurate. Also, Obama has only one “n” in the name. Peace.

  18. slickrik says:

    Sure that’s not an ‘M’? hmm

  19. Vote for Mit says:

    Vote for Mit Romney! Put Michele at home with all the kids, she needs to get out of politics, she’s dangerous

  20. Elle says:

    When is WCCO going to report on Obama’s mistakes?
    Like pronouncing the ‘p’ in corpsmen, awarding a posthumous medal to a soldier whom he referred to as alive (I still feel for his family… how horribly insensitive to not do your home work and KNOW who has actually died for your country), and referring to the US as having 57 states….

    how the heck do you come up with 57??

    1. Jim says:

      Those are obvious slips of the tongue by the president because they provide no advantage to him. Just the opposite, in fact, as Republicans have used these slips as ammunition for years now. Bachmann, on the other hand, is a liar. See the difference?

    See BS is afraid, because Michelle Bachmann is stepping away from Teleprompters.

    Obama got caught without a TelePrompTer and he repeated. “Ummmmm Ummmmm Ummmmm Ummmmm Ummmmmm Ummmmmmm Ummmmm Ummmmmm Ummmmmmm Ummmmmm Ummmmmmm Ummmmmmm Ummmmmm”

    Rush got a kick out of it

    I think she can see China from the Stillwater lift bridge too and Iran in her toilet bowl ! But since most of her guesses about history be they ancient,recent or in the future are so wildly off.I decided not to have her guess which lottery numbers I’m going to play tommorrow!

    23 foster children?? You can’t make me believe she did this out of her love for children. In my opinion, she gamed the foster care system for personal financial gain.

    All I got to say is what a joke! Her past comment’s some of them are rude and they even said on the news that out of 24 comments she recently said 17 of them were lies. How can you trust someone to run our country if all they do is lie. Plus again past comment’s some of them were rude on what she was saying. If I was voting for rep. it would be Palenty NOT Bachmann. But I may just stick with Obama?

      Kathy! MY EYES!!!!

      Adding an apostrophe and an s to the end of a word does NOT MAKE IT PLURAL!!!!

    After reading all the comments from the liberal’s to the conservatives the thought that comes to me is summarized in 2 Tim:1-5…(but especially verse 3)

    No matter what your opinion of the Bible is, you would likely find these scriptures interesting.

      A. He addresses the American public via a press conference (photo op).

  28. Les Johnson says:

    I have to add that this picture of her on the article is absolutely horrific.

    I bet she has to cut her way out of that makeup every night like Sigourney Weaver escaping from the Zool Dog in Ghostbusters…

    In reguard to the Tom Petty song needing a new one. I suggest her using the song Money, Money, It’s a Rich Mans world. It perfectly captures her phylosophy.

    1. Taxpayer says:

      Just imagine if everyone’s phylosophy was to sit at home and collect a government check.

    People who lie cannot be trusted from that point on.
