    Boy...you guys will go to all lengths to discredit a conservative woman.
    Next we will see a post saying that Bachmann has changed supermarkets and now shops at Stop and Shop......likely becuase she found out that the owner of Waldbaums supermarkets is Jewish.

    Suggestion...if you really care about ensuring we have the right person in the white house, spend time analyzing the virtues of a candidate and stop- seeking unwarranted criticisms.

    Or do what you do....

    And you'll go to all lengths to defend rightwingnut loons. I wonder how far back we need to go back to read posts that rightwingnut loons wrote about the president's church.

    The correlation seems to escape you.

    the fact that you insist on using "rightwing loons" speaks volumes of the intergity of your posts.
    I did not criticize the church of Obama. I did, however, question the character of a man that would refer to someone with Wrights ideology as a "mentor".
    Ironically, for some reason, people like you who are so quick to point out racism...even when it may not exist but may seem to exist if miscontrued....refused to even address the Wroight issue as disturbing...you automatically said "he is being taken out of context"....

    Which, by the way, is fine if in fact you are fair and balanced and point out when things are taken out of context as it pertains to right leaning candidates.

    But you dont. You AUTOMATICAlLY blast whatever someone on the right says that CAN BE taken out of context.

    So take your partisan comments like the one I just addressed and use them on someone else.

    Bachmann was smart to quit this church. They are well known to be anti-Catholic.

    Although the timing makes it look more politically expedient than an honest abhorrence to the church's bigotry.

    No doubt she left the church for political expediency......would you expect any less of any politician on either side?

    I would not.

    However, I would have preferred that Obama quit Wright's church once he started spouting racism and I would have preferred that Bachmann quit this church once it was clear they were anti-Catholic. Neither did until it became a political liability.

    But whatcha gonna do? :dunno:

    My answer?
    Dont let them get away with it.
    As you did with THIS story.....the same was done with the Wright story.
    But THIS story will likely prove to be a downfall for Bachmann....as I hear more about it, I will likely scratch her off my long list.
    For Obama...the left ignored the story...rationalized it in any way they could...and criticized those, such as me, who was bothered by it.

    But it should have bothered EVERYONE......

    The question is not that Bachmann quit her church for political expediency, but whether she still maintains a rather extreme prejudice against the Catholic Church, still considers the Pope to be an agent of the devil and continues to hope for "the end of times".

    I'd rather not have a POTUS hoping for an "end of times"; would any sane person?
